Last year I created the GOPHER THE CURE to raise money to help fight cancer. This year it is in honor of my stepmother Minda Dobres and my Safta (Grandmother) Malkah Mansoor who lost her battle with breast cancer when I was too young to remember her... So this year we fight for them as well as all others with Cancers of all types.  Let's get together, have fun and fight breast cancer.  Mark DaGopher Dobres or call 204-294-4263
