Most of us have friends and relatives who have passed away as a result of cancer. Many remarkable scientific break throughs have already been made so that individuals with cancer can live longer more productive lives. More progress is needed in order to beat this disease completely.
What can GSS do to help? We can join together to participate in the annual TERRY FOX run during the first B block this Friday, September 30 . Please donate a “tooney for Terry” to continue the scientific research into finding a cure for cancer. Hopefully with our combined efforts we can one day beat this dreadful disease so that everyone with cancer can “live long and prosper”.
If you have lost a wallet, one was recently found in the Silver Valley area which can be identified in the office.
