Husband raises thousands for wife with breast cancer
Cancer is a word with weight but it’s facing a fierce competitor in Saskatoon.
Nicole Irvine learned of her breast cancer diagnosis in June.
After a radical surgery, she is now in the middle of aggressive chemotherapy treatment.
Her husband, Lowell, is used to fixing problems but her diagnosis rendered him feeling powerless.
“So I decided this is something obviously that I can’t like we fix everything else. So I figured we’d raise a little bit of money and get somebody else to fix it,” he told C95’s Rob and Shauna on Thursday.
Lowell raised $14, 686 for the 13th annual C95 Radio Marathon which raises funds for breast cancer research.
The radio marathon began on Thursday at 6 a.m. and continues live from the Lawson Heights Mall until 6 p.m. on Friday.
The marathon started when former C95 morning show host, Lisa Rendall, was diagnosed with breast cancer after a vertebra in her neck collapsed. Rendall lost her battle with cancer in April 2011 after living nearly 12 years with the disease.
