Dr Neill Neill gets head shaved for Cops for Cancer

It’s nothing new for me to be supporting organizations that are raising money for cancer research or support of those living with cancer. It has become a more personal matter in the past few years as cancer took my son Richard, two sisters-in-law, two uncles, two first cousins and several clients. On the positive side, with the advancements in cancer detection and treatment that our funding has assisted, I have increasing numbers of relatives and others close to me that have survived cancer and got on with their lives. This did not used to happen. The numbers of Cancer Negligence Claims have gone down, that´s why many more patients have gone through treatment much more peaceful.

However, having my head shaved in support of kids with cancer is something new for me. On Thursday, I and other members of the PQB News team are having our heads shaved as a fundraising effort.

I would be delighted if you could sponsor me or the team by making a donation to Cops for Cancer. We are raising funds to help the Canadian Cancer Society send children to their summer recreation program, Camp Goodtimes.

If you are local, I could pick up a cheque, or you could drop off your donation at PQB News, Parksville City Hall or my office.

Thanks to all of you who can contribute. My best wishes go to all of you who are dealing with cancer in your families.
