    Kurt Browning's Father Passes Away

    They mentioned it at the end of the CBC's broadcast of Cup of China this afternoon.

    Condolences to Kurt and the family.

    I was reading an article about Kurt and family. I knew his dad was ill but didn't know that he had breast cancer.

    Dewey's battled cancer off and on for a long while from what I've gathered. And Kurt's mom also battled cancer IIRC... Sonia's family hasn't been immune either, which is why he's been a part of the last few cancer skates that have been televised (I guess just the last couple)... he mentioned his dad's battle with brest cancer - bringing awareness to the lesser known.

    My deepest sympathies to Kurt, his family, and everyone else fortunate to have met Dewey in person. I can't think of too many other skating parents who received a tribute on national TV after passing away, and I think both Kurt and the CBC handled it as classy as they could.

    From all accounts--including Kurt's--Dewey was an incredible man who will be missed very much.

    Dewey Browning was a wonderful man, and will definitely be missed.

    According to Kurt's agent, contributions in his honor can be made to:

    Rocky Mountain House Hospital and Care Centre
    5016 52 Ave.
    Rocky Mountain House AB T4T 1T2

    Kurt spoke about his father's battle with breast cancer in this interview and mentioned that his father was a 3x survivor in the Frosted Pink broadcast last fall.
