Appearing on the KVSH Comment program, Sandhills Cancer Fund representative Berniece Rhoades announced that they have canceled their fall ride event due to drought conditions in the area. Normally held the last Saturday in September based out of Johnstown. The Sandhills Cancer Fund covers a 10 county area of North Central Nebraska and helps an average of 60 patients per year who are battling cancer. So far this year the fund has given out over $28,000 in grant to help with travel expenses for those fighting cancer. In 13 years the fund has awarded over $330,000 in help. A person can apply every six month while they continue to battle. Information is available at area hospitals. Since they will not be holding a fund raising event this year, tax deductible donations can be dropped off at Union Bank and Trust, Security First Bank and Ward Plumbing and Heating in Valentine. On November 3rd they will auction off a hand made wooden semi hay hauler truck, made and donated by Swede Lolley, at Valentine Livestock.
