"Heading For A Cure" coming soon!

In the last few months we've mentioned the support group sponsored by the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada - we've really appreciated getting together with others who are dealing with brain tumours, either themselves or in a family member or close friend. We've received some excellent resources from the Foundation, including patient handbooks and a children's story book (all available for free to anyone who asks - the handbooks are absolutely essential!), and they also put on educational events for people to learn more about brain tumours. Now we'd like to give a little back to the Foundation by bringing this to your attention:

"Heading For A Cure" will be a musical evening featuring a variety of performers at the Bassment in Saskatoon. It happens at 8PM on Friday March 4th, and tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, with proceeds going to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. There will also be a silent auction. If you're interested, please phone 306-249-2055 or e-mail for information or tickets. We're hoping to able to attend, and we'd love to see some familiar faces there too!

By the way, this is a "warm-up" to the Saskatoon Spring Sprint fundraiser that will be happening in Saskatoon on Sunday June 5th - you'll likely see more stuff about that here in the months to come, as we're hoping to participate in that as well.

I just realized that in just less than one week, Kolbjorn will begin his 6th (and hopefully last) cycle of chemo. It's hard to believe we've come so far already. Thanks so incredibly much to all of you for being with us on this journey, we've really appreciated your love and support.
