THANKS to Free Press readers, Team Lindor came through for CancerCare Manitoba.

Free Press columnist Lindor Reynolds was able to offer CancerCare some payback for all they have done for her during her fight with a malignant brain tumour, dropping off a cheque for $1,900 Friday.

The money was raised through the sale of T-shirts that invited readers to join Team Lindor for $25.

The black-and-white shirts featured a typewriter font with the slogan: "There are only good days and great days."

Reynolds was inspired by late Free Press photo editor Jon Thordarson who, during his eight-year battle with cancer, would answer enquiries about his health with, "only good days and great days."

"We raised $1,900, which speaks to the kindness of readers and the people of Winnipeg," Reynolds said.

Reynolds said the staff at CancerCare have done so much for her and others fighting the disease she was only too happy to do something to raise some money and awareness for the program.

While Reynolds braces for another round of chemotherapy and deals with two broken vertebrae from a recent fall, the words of encouragement from Free Press readers have helped make for plenty of good days and great days during her medical leave from writing a column.

"The readers have been fantastic. I have had hundreds of cards from people."
