Canvassers needed

Dear Mr. Editor:
Every April during Daffodil Month, the Canadian Cancer Society relies on tens of thousands of volunteers to canvass their neighbourhoods to help raise money in the fight against this disease.
To make this year’s door-to-door campaign a success, we’re challenging the residents of Fort Frances and district to walk their block and join the Canadian Cancer Society as volunteer canvassers.
It’s estimated two out of five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But by donating just a few hours of time, residents of Fort Frances and district can help change this statistic—and bring hope to people living with cancer in our community.
Canvassing also is a great way to build our community’s spirit, get re-acquainted with old neighbours, and meet new ones.
The money raised through the door-to-door campaign will help the Canadian Cancer Society fund leading-edge Canadian cancer research, provide extensive and reliable information on all types of cancer, and offer community support services to people living with cancer, their families members, and friends.
To become a volunteer door-to-door canvasser, please call me at 274-5806.
You can be a face in the fight against cancer. Together, let’s make cancer history.
Laurie Mauro,
Fort Frances
campaign chairperson,
Canadian Cancer Society
