Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer

May 30, 2020

Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer is an annual head-shaving event that started in 1998. It began when Brayden Ottenbreit, a young boy from Yorkton, was diagnosed with cancer. To support him, his dad Greg, his uncle Grant, and a group of friends decided to shave their heads. It ended up turning into a fundraiser. Over the last five years, almost $119, 000 has been raised for research conducted by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Due to COVID-19 this year’s event has gone virtual. You can find Close Cuts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using Cuts4Cancer. Thank you for supporting this cause and the Foundation.

Lisa Davidson

It can be tough to find the positive when you are told you have cancer but Lisa Davidson from Regina tried to do just that. Just before the Labour Day Long Weekend in 2016, her suspicions were confirmed…breast cancer.

Sam Kliman

Sam Kliman has an attitude…and it was an important part of his cancer journey. Ten years ago the Regina resident was in his early 30’s and enjoying life; golfing, staying fit, hanging out with friends and loving his job.

Louise Bird

You can’t help but be impressed with Louise Bird’s attitude. The two-time cancer survivor, mother to four children, one step-child and grandma to ten grandchildren had a simple mantra while battling breast cancer.
