Fundraiser for Cap News photographer battling cancer

January 13, 2012

Kelowna Capital News photographer Sean Connor, who is battling a rare form of brain cancer, has recently returned from California, where he has been receiving “specialized proton radiation treatment,” according to the paper.


“Sean’s many Kelowna media friends are getting together and inviting the public to celebrate his recovery so far, and to raise funds to help him and his family with their expenses,” said event organizer Kim Calloway, in a press release. 

“Through the years, Sean’s photography has supported and promoted no end of community endeavours, and we’ve organized this special night to try to repay the favour.”


As noted, there’s a fundraiser Feb. 2 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Sean was diagnosed last July. While BC Medical has covered the treatment for Sean, it doesn’t cover all those expensive incidentals that come along with cancer treatment, not to mention cancer treatment in another country. 

A bunch of fine photography will be auctioned off, along with other items. More items are still needed though.

For more information on the event, or to donate to Sean’s cause or to donate items to the silent auction,   contact Heather McCullough at 250-808-0131 or heathermc@telus.net. Alternatively, call Kim Calloway at 250-763-6397 or email him at kimc@q1031.ca.


Oh, and Sean and his wife Sandra will be on hand at the auction so stop by to say hi.
