Mandi Schwartz[edit]

One user keeps trying to start a new section in the article for Mandi Schwartz using the reasoning that she has received more media coverage than Jaden. If that is the case, then shouldn't she have her own article? This article is about Jaden, not his sister, and I believe the information about Mandi should stay in the 'Personal Life' section as it pertains to Jaden.

I would say that with the coverage before and after her death, Mandi probably meets the requirements for her own article. If the material stays in this article, I think it should be in the 'Personal life' section or retitle that to 'Family'. Canada Hky (talk) 17:09, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I agree that the info in Jaden's 'Personal life' section is sufficient for this article because this article is about Jaden. On the subject of that section- it should be kept as 'Personal life' so more info can be added in the future such as: spouses, children, personal initiatives/charity work, etc… titling it family seems kinda limiting. On the Mandi separate article topic- I'm not sure she is notable under WP:BIO. Is she receiving coverage just because she's the sister of a high profile NHL draft pick? It's really unfortenuate and sad that she passed away but many people die from cancer and are affected by it in Canada, US, and worldwide each year. And also the question, Is she notable for only one event? arises. Those are really debates if an article is created and AfDed but having her own bio section definitely isn't appropriate for this article.Bhockey10 (talk) 22:27, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I think the coverage is more than just her illness / being a sister of a high draft pick. The draft really increased media attention, but the bone marrow drives at Yale and around Saskatchewan were already well under way at that point. I wouldn't say everyone who dies from cancer merits an article, but maybe one who spurs bone marrow / cord blood drives in two countries is. There is almost certainly enough coverage in reliable secondary sources to meet the GNG. Canada Hky (talk) 23:18, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Yeah that's true. There's coverage from reliable secondary sources and wouldn't be a question. The Gray area is because our culture highly elevates entertainment and sport figures and their close relatives. Culture's notability doesn't have restrictions like Wikipedia. She doesn't fit into any of the notability categories I know of such as athlete, academia, politics, etc... and I don't think she meets the WP:ANYBIO guidelines. She would definitely have an article if the awareness her story and the marrow drives create and/or largely contribute to a cure for cancer. Bhockey10 (talk) 01:42, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
