There is a new geocoin dedicated to the plight of breast cancer. This coin is trackable on geocaching.com and comes with its own icon.



All proceeds will go to the BC Cancer Foundation.


Coins will be sold for a minimum $10.00 donation. Yes, larger donations would be appreciated and gladly accepted. Shipping costs across Canada are an additional $3.00 but you can save on shipping by picking up the coins in Abbotsford.

Help support the BC Cancer Foundation. Contact Bob at: fla66 @ shaw.ca

Fla66 asked me to post this message for him. You can reach him at his email: fla66 @ shaw.ca or through his account on groundspeak.

His geocaching.com contact can be found at this link...

Be glad to help out. I have a wife and daughter and you never know. I have a brother is a bladder cancer survivor (ex volunteer fireman) and another brother who is a prostate cancer survivor (ex airline pilot). It was considered that their professions were contributing factors. Anything to aid the fight against cancers of all types. I will be in touch.

Hello All!
I want to first Thank Scruffster for making this post because I'm not good at doing anything but turning my computer "on"

The picture I sent him does this beautiful coin NO JUSTICE!

It has two colors of pink. I will get a good picture soon. After people see the true colors of this coin I won't have any left.

The coin was designed for my wife who is fighting cancer a second time. It is incurable. She does the "weekend walk to end breast cancer" I am on the "crew" All money goes to the "walk" aka BC Cancer Foundation.

Thanks,
BOB

I received my coins today, and the pics do not do them justice. They are very, very attractive coins. I don't know if there are any left, but if you didn't get any, you missed out on a good coin for a good cause.

On Saturday I slipped out of work and went by and picked up a coin from Fla66 at the car wash he put on for Breast cancer.
We had a nice chat about caching and fishing. The coin is great and he is right the picture does not do the coin justice.
I took a few pictures and they show the colors a little better but still not the best. Thanks for this beautiful coin.

I had seen this coin in a coin book of a friend and really wanted one and was lucky to get one in the 2008 Geocoin Bonanza in Vancouver on June 28th.
It is a beautiful coin and a wonderful cause to support.
