I hope everyone is enjoying summer and health as good as it can be considering the circumstances.

A few quick notes:
Reminder – Edmonton’s own Dr Adam Kinnaird  is featured on the BC Prostate Cancer speaking roster  July 13th. Dr Kinnaird has been instrumental in the new precise biopsy, precise external beam radiation treatment and a prostate MRI  before treatment. These processes are game changers. Let’s support Adam and tie into his seminar on the 13th.  bccancerfoundation.com
VP Randy  Peterson and I attended the Partnership in Prostate Health sponsored by AB Cancer , Royal Alex Foundation and the U of A Foundation June 15. The who’s who of prostate cancer in Edmonton were in attendance. Our friend, John Sexsmith was the MC and he plugged  the importance of  PEPSS. He also slyly arranged to have me speak for a minute to the audience. A great stop I thought.  Thanks John.
In July, I met with Ward Sutheralnd  to plan an Edmonton visit of the “Man Van” . This Van is operated by the Calgary Prostate Centre. This van is equipped to take PSA tests on site. It usually appears at events to maximize testing.  I assured Ward we have a great volunteer contingent to assist with the “Man Van” when we finalize dates. I am sure you won’t let me down when Van visits. Easy fun volunteer duties.
Most members will have heard me speak of the “Choma Will” William Choma graciously named PEPSS and 32 other charities as  recipients in his substantial “Will”. We expected to receive those funds in June / July. The Will has been challenged and the proceeds will be delayed for months I suspect. The Executive did not attempt to raise any funds based on the windfall. Unfortunately that leaves us in a bit of a cash shortfall. The Edmonton Community Foundation Kirkland Fund will gift $1000 to PEPSS this week. If any other members have some “spare change” to share with us, we would be most appreciative. As a registered Federal Charity, we will provide a charitable receipt for any offerings received.   
 We will even add your name to our website “sponsor page’ if you are comfortable with  the undertaking.
Enjoy the rest of the summer. See you in September. Location to be determined
Terry for the Executive
