We’ll begin our Friday show with a chat about a first time meeting happening in Halifax next month. Oncologist Dr. Robyn MacFarlane will drop by the red table at 6:45 to talk with Crystal about the first-ever bladder cancer patient meeting in the Maritimes. She says these types of gatherings are important for those diagnosed with the disease but it also helps to raise awareness about the warnings signs for this common type of cancer.
Skipping rope is not just a game played in driveways and school yards anymore. It’s a serious sport, especially for a talented group of people from our great city of Halifax. At 7:15 Crystal will get a lesson from the folks with Jump Energy Rope Skipping Club before they head off to the National CanadianRope Skipping Championships in British Columbia!
At 7:45 we’ll introduce you to the face of the Crohns and Colitis Canada fundraising campaign. Eleven-year old Jillian Robinson is a Haligonian and was diagnosed with colitis when she was just three years old. She’s an amazing girl and you’ll soon become very familiar with her name and story as the nation-wide fundraising campaign rolls out next week as part of the M&M Meat Shop Charity Day BBQ.
