October is Breast Cancer Action Month

I have hope.

In striving to support Breast Cancer Awareness, Re/Max Caldwell Agencies is actively coordinating a fundraiser in our community (Kimberley, BC). For the next several months, Caldwell Agencies will be selling hand-made toques, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Oncology department at the Cranbrook – East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

Toque - Remax Caldwell FundraiserBreast Cancer silently strikes our loved ones, your sister, your wife, your mom, your girlfriend, your sister-in-law; and, in my case it was my grandmother, my aunt (who’s a cancer survivor) and two close friends. No one is exempt, no matter how wonderful and lovely each of these women are. The Canadian Cancer Society states that 25,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This represents 26% of all new cancer cases in women in 2015.

Help us in the fight, as we observe ‘Breast Cancer Action Month’.
