The Family Firrst Radiothon starts in Moose Jaw on May 5th and 6th.  At the Moose Jaw Health Foundation and 800 CHAB family comes first. Donations to the fifth annual Family First Radiothon will provide the best chemotherapy equipment in Canada for patients battling cancer at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. The Radiothon provides everyone in the community with the opportunity to show how much they care about friends and family who are battling cancer.

The need is growing - the number of chemotherapy treatments at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital has increased by 35% in the last three years. Last year, nearly 1,000 chemotherapy treatments helped patients battling cancer at our hospital. Chances are your life or someone you care about has been affected by cancer.

The Moose Jaw Health Foundation needs your help to raise over $150,000 for new chemotherapy equipment to help patients win the fight of their life.

Please donate to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation on 800 CHAB on May 5th and 6th to help medical professionals in the Day Surgery Unit deliver the best care for chemotherapy patients at the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.

  1. Now that we dealt our 3rd and 6th and we didn't get the Pats 2nd rounder like we all had thought... doesn't look like we are in as good of drafting position as all the fans were led to believe.

    That is why I am so against dealing away picks. We need to have youth and picks to develop the team we need with the depth we need to continue to be a top end team. Develop through the draft is the only way to go in order to be competitive in this league. These trades of 3 prospects for an average player has to stop or we will always be a mid range team.
