KEHOE, Nathan Gerald - 16, of Martinique. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our little 'fighting Irishmen' a term used to describe how valiantly and bravely he fought cancer for the last four years. Nathan was born in Halifax May 22, 1994. He lost his battle at IWK Health Centre 6 Link in Halifax on March 30, 2011, surrounded by his loving and adoring family: dad Ron, mother Annette (Bourque) and his two big-gest fans, brother Jordan, Dartmouth and sister Lindsay, at home as well as godfather Trevor who traveled from Yellowknife to be with us. Nathan knew and enjoyed the love and support of a large and extend-ed family. Maternal grandmother, Priscilla Bourque, Arichat; uncle, Jer-ry (Muriel) Bourque, West Arichat; aunt, Claire (Clarence) Landry, Ari-chat; godmother, Shauna Austin,

Nathan chose to be at the IWK during his  last days as he had grown fond of a surrogate family comprised of 6 Link staff and physicians Palliative Care Team and the 6th floor Clinic Staff especially FCC Annette Flanders, who shared many special moments with Nathan and our family. Nathan was a very focused young man who aspired to someday become a physician - his dreams to achieve this were support-ed by the wonderful friends and teach-ers at Ecole Beau Port. Nathan was al-so a very accomplished sailor with the 235 Arrow Sea Cadet Corp in Arichat, having won many awards and acco-lades. He made many lasting friend-ships
through cadets especially that of Katie Burke from Fredricton, N.B. whom he met while attending camp in St. John's, N.L., where he was successful in achieving his White Sail Level 111, despite having just completed 14 rounds of chemotherapy, radiothera-py and major reconstructive surgery to implant a rephysis in his left femur. He was truly an inspiration to all who met him. Nathan was predeceased by his paternal grandfather, Howard Ke-hoe; maternal grandfather, Adrian Bourque and paternal aunt, Pat Poi-rier.
