Pierre Martel, friend and survivor

I would like to make our guests aware of a new website for a friend of ours. The site is called "The Road Home" and it is a blog dedicated and now updated by Pierre Martel, who has just been the recipient of a liver transplant. Pierre is originally from Moncton, New Brunswick. He has called Eunice home since 1996, when he took a position as the French teacher at Central Middle School under the CODOFIL program. I originally met Pierre when we were attempting to start a French immersion program at Highland Elementary in 2002. Later, I helped Pierre coach tee-ball on the "Gators" team for his son, Brandon Luc, and my son, Alain Francois. Soon after our coaching of the Gators in the Spring-Summer of 2005, Pierre's condition worsened and has required the liver transplant that he just received. You can read his story and help out at his website at www.pierremartel.info. Thanks and God bless.
