Colleen Smith had no idea her granddaughter Katey Norton would be up for a prize when she picked up the Burn Fund calendar as a gift to comfort her as she battles brain cancer in Calgary. Smith thought the calendar would be a beautiful reminder of home as Katey, 25, recovers in hospital. Instead, the young woman received a box suite at an upcoming Kootenay Ice game and 12 tickets that she’ll use next time she’s home in Cranbrook.
