Campbell Riverites help women suffering from cancer in Mexico

The Cancer de Mama muffin and coffee fundraiser for women with breast cancer in Mexico was an amazing success.

The Cancer de Mama muffin and coffee fundraiser for women with breast cancer in Mexico was an amazing success.

A total of $2,000 was raised, with the Campbell River Dragon Boat Society giving $800 to assist their sisters who do not have the services that are available in Canada.

The money will contribute toward the cost of putting on the three-day event in LaPenita Trailer Park in Mexico, where women will receive bras, prosthetics, wigs, scarves and much more to make their lives more meaningful.The story by Karen Stranaghan, which the Mirror ran on September 17, attracted several women from our community who dropped in to make a donation. One woman contributed $100 and school supplies, as the story touched her so much.

“The people who organized the event in LaPenita and the women who receive the service will hold the women of Campbell River in a special place in their hearts,” said Linda Ruehlen, an event organizer.
