Letter: raising funds for cancer

The CCS volunteers in Rossland who sold daffodils and went door to door canvassing in April exemplify volunteerism.

To the Editor:

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a volunteer driven organization.

It is because of volunteerism that the CCS is able to raise the funds needed to deliver support to those living with cancer, continue research into earlier detection and improved diagnostics, and continue ongoing education to lower the risks of developing cancer.

The CCS volunteers in Rossland who sold daffodils and went door to door canvassing in April exemplify volunteerism.

Rossland residents responded to their request with sales of $2,127 in fresh daffodils and pledged $15,649 at the door.

Once again, our sincerest thanks. Each and every year, support from Canadians makes a difference as we strive to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer.

Mary Hatlevik

President, Rossland Unit, Canadian Cancer Society
