<strong>I don't often ask for anything for myself, but recently our family (specifically my mom) has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, and considering that this form of Cancer is the least supported of all, we are attempting to hit our goal of $5,000.00 towards research against this life threatening disease. </strong>

<strong>On Saturday April 14th from 8:00 pm until midnight we are hosting the very first <em>"Strike A Cure"</em> for Pancreatic Cancer, moonlight bowling event in Georgetown, Ontario. For a $20/person donation there will be unlimited 5 pin bowling, raffles, a toonie toss, Pizza, Chili and buffet all in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Society.</strong>

<strong>I'd also like to challenge any teams or corporations who will definitely receive tax receipts for their gracious support! Please take a look at the link below for further details and/or to make a donation online!</strong>

<strong>Should a monetary donation not be possible from individuals, small businesses or corporations, then any product that could be utilized as raffle prizes would also be greatly appreciated! </strong>

<strong>Thankyou in advance everyone for helping support this worthwhile cause as my mom is/has been in the battle of her life!</strong>

Tony,

I cannot make the event but happy to buy a ticket, Ill use the money I saved by refusing to attend the Red Wings pointless play off game. Better in the pockets of pancreatic cancer than Stu Hyman.

Let me know what I need to do because i dont need an actual ticket, just happy to donate the equivalent.

Hope things go well with your mother.

<strong>Thanks "kiltyb" you're the greatest, I "REALLY" appreciate your support! Considering that my personal donation has been the renting of the bowling alley for four hours to host this event, ANY child that would like to atend but can't afford the $20, is MORE than welcome to show up anyways! I'm sure that we can find an extra pair of shoes, an alley and a ball for them to "borrow" if you know what I mean?</strong>

<strong>If you'd like to make a donation "kiltyb", simply go to the link and you can see the banner of sponsorship in addition to the "make a donation" tab as well! Thanks again!</strong>

Tony, I lost my lovely wife Gayle on March 12, 2001 to pancreatic cancer. We were married 43 years. Fortunately she did not suffer and lived with the disease comfortably for a little over 2 years due to a new experimental chemo. When the time came, it was 2 days and painless.

I contribute to Princess Margaret Hospital every year and will send a contribution on line to the website that you indicated to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer, one of the most devastating cancers there is.

My wife always had an expression when things got tough, she would say "HANG IN THERE BABY", please pass this on to your Mother from me and my family.

<strong>Thank you for your courageous sharing and heartfelt words of support "SMC57". Considering that my Grandad (my Moms father) passed away from this horrific disease back in 1976 the prognosis is obviously not very good. Having said that "SMC57", when I see the courage and relentless conviction that my mom has to battle this disease, then far be it for me to cower into hole and not be there for her! </strong>

<font size="4"><strong>I'll pass your words of encouragement to my Mom and remind her to .....</strong> <strong>"HANG IN THERE BABY"! <img alt="happy.gif" src="/images/happy.gif" width="14" height="14"></strong></font>

<strong>As we say in our AA program "SMC57" ..... "By sharing a problem, we half it"!</strong>

<strong>Take care and thank you from the bottom of my heart! <img alt="happy.gif" src="/images/happy.gif" width="14" height="14"></strong>

I lost a brother, 8 years younger than I , to this devastating form of cancer.

For my brother, Craig, who died in 2007, and for your Mom, I know what you must surely be going through.

I want you to know that I will be sure to say prayers for your Mom.

Know that the hockey community right here on this forum that you so generously donate some of your precious time to, are standing right here beside your Mom.

"Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers."
