What’s On at the... What’s On in Mission... The Canadian Cancer Society, that’s What’s On in Mission and all across Canada, every day in the fight to beat cancer.

By publication date, this years Daffodil month will be over & we thank, the businesses and individuals for their support in corporate donations and the public for there generous support by wearing the daffodil Pin to show caring and, joining the fight against cancer.

Cancer never stops it’s attack, it never takes holidays, the weather does not matter. Thus the reason volunteers in Mission and across the country work so hard to help those stricken with the disease. Volunteer drivers take patients to treatment centers and consultations with specialists. Every year hundreds of families are driven to their treatments free of charge by our volunteer drivers.

From all of the volunteers we thank you for your support in the past and in the future. Jimmy Logan

We also run support groups. One-on-one telephone support by volunteers having walked the walk and understand the worry and fear when first diagnosed with the disease. During the year Cops for Cancer volunteer for fundraising events to help kids with cancer, paediatric research and Camp Good Times. Camp Good Times gives kids & families a chance to enjoy themselves with others suffering the same fight. RCMP Cnst. Christine Day has volunteered to be Mission’s Cop for Cancer again this year. Christine will be doing a Pole Sit atop a 50 foot Scissor lift (supplied by Arnolds Rentals) from 4p.m. Friday July 13th to Sunday July 15th in the forecourt of Save - On - Foods in the Junction. During this week-end we have the fantastic Rob Hess and the gospel connection performing plus great prizes and raffles. We look forward to your support of this event.

Optimum Health & Wellbeing “O “Our daughter was diagnosed last summer w with a slipped femoral head epiphysis in b both her hips. After having surgery to pin tthe h hips into place, she began experiencing p pain when she walked and regressed into u using crutches and a cane. She was also taking a lot of medication to control the pain. ta We W decided to do whatever we could to help h r and one of the approaches in our multi-modal he her approach was to try the low light therapy suggested by Dolf. We used the light therapy diligently for one week.

Within a couple of days of using the lights, we were able to reduce her medication and within a week, she was off the medication all together and walking without the use of crutches or cane.“ - Kristen Jones M wife and I are both retired with health My issues. My wife came upon this health is s store, FUEL. We met the owner, Dolf. Thanks to Dolf I feel like a new man! The T combination of the alkaline water, light c therapy and proper nutrition he th recommended has changed our lives. r My h My health eallth has improved remarkably and still continues to.

Thank you Dolf. God Bless You.” ...Earl & Monica Reid

“Return to the Garden”

www.woodsidegallery.ca

Celebrating the Art and Culture of Gardening

Woodside Gallery, 2226 Lougheed Highway, Mount

Opening Reception, Mother’s day, Sunday May 13,

Woodside, Harrison Mills BC

2012, Refreshments served “Return to the Garden” explores the physical, social and spiritual aspects of the garden and our connection with nature and physical environment. Our spiritual and physical evolution is the inner and outward reflection of self and nature. In this time of globalization, it is time to “return to the garden” as a place of refuse and re-establish a harmonious co-existence with people, genetic biodiversity and planet. When we nurture the garden, we nurture ourselves by learning how to respect our physical body and the body of our planet, which is the garden of earth.
