Cuts 4 Cancer looks for more heads

    Curly locks will once again be hitting the Chop Shop floor in the name of Drumheller cancer support during the 6th annual Cuts 4 Cancer fundraiser on Thursday, February 3.

    This year, the entire Drumheller Titans football team, over 30 boys, have signed up to dare the buzzers for the sake of raising money which will stay in Drumheller for cancer patient support. Others have picked up forms, while many more are sought after in this successful fundraiser.
    “The more the merrier,” says Chop Shop owner Cathy Morse, who started the fundraising event after the passing of her mother, Rose Schinnour.
    Last February’s event raised more than $20,000, and this year, Morse hopes to bring the funds to over $30,000. Since 2007, Cuts 4 Cancer has raised over $59,000 for both the Cancer Centre here in Drumheller and the Hospital’s Palliative Care unit.
    The important thing about this fundraiser is that every dollar stays in Drumheller and goes toward the treatment of Drumheller patients.   
    Money from the event has bought the hospital two air beds, and the furnishing of a family room at the health centre.
    “It has been a wonderful, community supported effort,” says Foundation Secretary Linda Ames.
    Pledge sheets can be picked up at the Chop Shop on Highway 9.
