That's Life August 25, 2010

Most of us have been touched by the loss of a loved one to cancer. My dad died of cancer in 1987.
This week communities within Kneehill County will have the opportunity to help find a cure.
The Wild Pink Yonder "Ride for a Cure" passes through Acme, Linden, Three Hills and Trochu this week. Breast cancer is the target and all of us need to do what we can to help fight the battle.
So far, in 2010, 23,200 females have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Canada, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. This is not a disease exclusive to women as 180 males have also been diagnosed.
Even though there is an 87% five year survival rate for women and 84% five year survival rate for men, 5,300 women and 50 men have died from Breast Cancer, this year.
While it is of paramount importance to raise as much money as possible to fight this evil disease it's also important to create as much awareness as possible for the need for a cure.
That's where "The Pinkest Little Town in the West" contest comes in.
You'll notice that Kneehill communities have gone out of there way to catch your attention. You're asked to support the events planned for you and do all that you can to make these events as successful as possible.
Check today's Capital and last week's issue for details. Look for posters and make sure you do everything in your power to help those who need your help now and in the future.
Help find a cure.
That's Life.
