In today’s society, a person will ask “what is cancer”! As per the Canadian Cancer Society “Cancer is a disease that starts in our cells. Our bodies are made up of millions of cells, grouped together to form tissues and organs such as muscles and bones, the lungs and the liver. Genes inside each cell order it to grow, work, reproduce and die. Normally sometimes the instructions get mixed up, causing the cells to form lumps or tumors, or spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to other parts of the body.” For anyone wishing more information on “what is cancer”, “types of cancer”, “treatment”, “coping with cancer’ etc…please visit the Canadian Cancer Society website at www.cancer.ca
A person will ask “How can I help?”…There are different ways in which an individual can help. You can be a volunteer, make a donation, take steps toward a healthier lifestyle, and hold your own event to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society. Be a proud supporter and help make cancer history. Cancer is truly everyone’s business as it affects all age group. Even companies can take a leadership role in the fight against cancer, while enhancing their corporate image and achieving business objectives.
The “Relay for Life” was started by dedicated volunteers in St. Charles. The relay has now been replaced by the “Golf for Life” that is held always in June. Through the community partnership program the organizers of “Golf for Life” in St. Charles have organized the event that is fun and meaningful to them while raising important funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. It has built community spirit in our community and surrounding areas and raised awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society. Funds that are raised from this event enable the Cancer Society to continue its effort to fund cancer research on all types of cancer, offer comprehensive and credible information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment and to provide support for people living with cancer, their families and friends
Golf for Life:
The participants of the golf tournaments have had a satisfying experience as this tournament is well organized. From the moment a ‘golfer’ signs up to the time they leave the course they had fun. It is evident from the returning participants that this event will only grow in years to come. The Golf for Life would like to give a special note of appreciation to all the ‘golfers’ for their support in this special event.
Volunteers were essential in this successful tournament and our ‘hat’ goes off to all of them on a job well done. Digital photos of our golfers were taken however if we missed some our apologies. If you send us your photo’s we will certainly place them on our website.
