North Coast Times - - FRONT PAGE -

MOTH­ERS will hold a su­per­hero-themed fundraiser for child­hood can­cer re­search in Eglinton this week­end.

Eglinton res­i­dent Jane Hunt and Chantelle St James, of Alki­mos, are or­gan­is­ing their sec­ond Cup­cakes for a Cure event this Sun­day, with help from Cinzia Bule­gato, of Eglinton.

Mrs Hunt said Septem­ber was Child­hood Can­cer Aware­ness month and they hoped to raise $1500 for the Kids Can­cer Project on Septem­ber 10.

“We want the kids to come dressed up as su­per­heroes,” she said.

“We have a great fam­ily event planned, with loads of en­ter­tain­ment: face painters, su­per­heroes, rep­tiles, an­i­mal farm, sport ac­tiv­i­ties,

soft play equip­ment and much more.”

Her son Thomas (3) was di­ag­nosed with can­cer of the soft tis­sue, or rhab­domyosar­coma, in Jan­uary 2016 and had chemo­ther­apy last year.

“He is now thank­fully 12 months in re­mis­sion,” she said.

Mrs Hunt said funds raised would go to­wards re­search into treat­ment.

There will be a raf­fle, while the cup­cakes will cost $3-4 each.
