Elaine Chubbs writes:Tony the children at ST Lewis academy raised over two thousand dollars for Shave For The Brave the student body is not very large they should be commended.The big ticket item today is the Relay for Life taking place in Charlottetown I will be attending as a survivor Warrick as my caregiver.In the year 2000 I lost my late husband to cancer at that time we didn't have a palliative care unit in Corner Brook it was very upsetting to me.One day I was reading the Western Star and saw how a group of women were going to pose nude to raise money for palliative care I became part of this team it was done very tastefully it was part of my healing and we got our unit in Corner Brook.We produced a beautiful calendar just like the the calendar girls in England lol.Have a wonderful weekend.
