About the Author

Marg Meikle

 

MARG MEIKLE's knack for finding answers led to a widely appreciated stint on CBC Radio as "The Answer Lady". She further demonstrated her skills by writing several books of non-fiction, including three for children: You Asked for It!, Funny You Should Ask Me and Ask Me Anything! For her efforts, she has been awarded both the Silver Birch and Red Cedar Awards.

Marg was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease as a young mother, at the age of 41. In 2001 she held the first Porridge for Parkinson’s Breakfast in Vancouver. Through Marg’s efforts, this event mushroomed and inspired similar breakfast events across the country, which continue to this day. By the time of her death of complications from the disease in December, 2013, at the age of 57, the event and matching donations had raised 1.6 million dollars for Parkinson’s research.
