The American Cancer Society: prevention, assistance, research and change Everyone has heard of the American Cancer Society, but some people may be a little sketchy on the goals and role of the organization. The American Cancer Society is dedicated to destroying cancer. It works in four main areas as it works toward the elimination of cancer: prevention, assistance, research and policy-making. The society funds projects in each of these areas to help people endure the ordeal of cancer. The first goal of the organization is prevention and education. It has developed dietary guidelines for eating well and ideas for exercises for staying active. Guidelines are regularly released to the public. The society promotes healthy living with a comprehensive website, publications and public service advertisements. The society also provides cancer screening guidelines, including ages at which people should start getting screenings for particular types of cancer. As an example, the organization’s efforts to promote pap smears led to a 70 percent decrease in cervical cancer since the 1950s when the test was introduced. One thing the American Cancer Society does not do is provide medical treatment directly. Instead, it will direct people to resources and connect them with hospitals or groups that provide assistance. According to its website, the society’s 24/7 phone line at 1-800227-2345 has answered questions for nearly one million individuals who call each year. The website itself provides instant access to a significant amount of information about cancer. In addition, the American Cancer Society attempts to help people get to places for treatment. The Road to

Recovery program connects patients with volunteer drivers. A lodging program helps patients and their families deal with living expenses while getting treatment. Support groups have formed in the website’s online forums, giving individuals ways to help and be helped. The society also offers programs to help cancer patients with appearance-related side effects of cancer, including wigs and inserts for patients who have endured hair-loss or mastectomies. The society states that it tries to be available to patients for the duration of their illness, providing both advice and access to resources that can help make the journey easier. On top of the prevention and assistance areas, the American Cancer Society is well known for its efforts in research. The organization prides itself on being the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research, having spent more than $3.6 billion on cancer research since 1946.

In Washington state alone, the society has provided more than $5.7 million to fund current research grants. Lists of the grants it has made are available on its website at http:// cancer.org. The research, while focusing on finding a cure, also includes studies on prevention efforts, regional differences in how cancer is treated and other topics that support the prevention and assistance goals. The organization focuses funding on new researchers with cutting-edge ideas, helping jump-start careers of scientists with high potential. The results have been impressive. Of the researchers provided funding by the organization over the last century, 46 are now Nobel Laureates. Two of the three scientists who received the Nobel Prize in 2011 for Medicine or Physiology had received funding from the society. The American Cancer Society also has a hand in policy-making, trying to organize people to petition lawmak-

ers for smoke-free laws and access to health care. Outreach events like the Relay for Life also spread the word about cancer and current possibilities for patients. Such events are both major fundraisers for the organization and a way to spread the messages of prevention and assistance. The American Cancer Society was first organized in 1913 by 10 prominent physicians and five business leaders in New York City. Now the organization is divided into 12 chartered, geographic affiliates supported by more than three million volunteers working alongside a core paid staff. The organization generally gets high reviews as a charity, with about 72 percent of its funds going into the programs it supports. The society is also financially transparent, which means it is easy to find out where the money goes. As with any large organization, problems occur, but due to the nature of the organization financial chicanery is usually spotted and fixed quickly. More than 1.6 million new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2012. More than 570,000 people will die from cancer this year. According to the American Cancer Society, anywhere from one third to a half of those cancers could have been prevented with better diet, more activity or cleaner air. The five-year survival rate for cancer is up to 67 percent from less than 50 percent in the 1970s. Because of advances in cancer fighting techniques, the America Cancer Society estimates around 12 million Americans are now cancer survivors.

Relay for Life committee breathing new life into 2012 event by Jennie McGhan

GRANDVIEW - The Lower Valley Relay for Life Committee is ready for this year’s event in Grandview on Saturday, May 19, through Sunday, May 20. “The time has been changed back to its original time of noon to noon,” said Team Development Chair Jaclyn Kendall. She said 35 to 40 teams are expected to participate in the annual event. Curtis Campbell also serves on the committee and said there are 131 confirmed participants currently. Kendall said the goal of this year’s committee is to raise $100,000. “That was our goal last year, but the rain kept us from raising that much,” she said, stating the Lower Valley Relay for Life netted $75,000 in 2011. Campbell said, “We were ahead at the beginning, but we were rained out.” Kendall said the committee is placing a high emphasis on getting cancer survivors involved in the 2012 relay. “There are a lot of survivors out there and we believe it’s highly important to honor them,” she said. Survivors do not have to pay a registration fee, they don’t need to raise funds, “…they just need to register so they can get a shirt,” said Kendall. Also for the survivors, the relay opens ceremonies with a survivor lap and survivors are treated to a free meal. Survivors, said Kendall, are all welcome to participate with or without registration. “We just won’t have a survivor shirt for those who aren’t regis-

tered,” Kendall said. Becky Duis is organizing the entertainment and events. She said several activities have been lined up. Activities will include Bingo at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, an all day silent auction, an all day Wii game, face painting and a free throw contest. At 3 p.m. there will be a frozen t-shirt contest. Duis said, “Someone’s in for a real treat.” A scavenger hunt for youngsters will begin at 3:30 p.m., a wheelchair decorating contest is slated for 4 p.m., Zumba is set for 4:30 p.m. and kids from 1 to 100 can participate in a game of musical chairs at 5 p.m. An adult scavenger hunt will commence at 6 p.m. and at 7 p.m. Smith Elementary School will present a talent show. The luminaria will take place at dusk, at midnight will be a poker walk, PJ’s lap begins at 1 a.m. on Sunday and will be followed by a beach lap at 2 a.m. At 3 a.m. an 80s lap is scheduled, at 4 a.m. will be a sports lap, and a cowboys and Indians lap is set for 5 a.m. Breakfast will be served by the Grandview Fire Department at 7 a.m., and closing ceremonies will be at noon on Sunday. Fundraising efforts will continue throughout the 24-hour relay. There will be the always-popular silent auction, team fundraisers, BBQ sandwiches and concessions. Kendall said, “We are hoping people will remain at the stadium on Sunday.” She said, “We are really trying to breathe new life into the event… cancer isn’t going away and neither

are we.” The committee is eager for feedback from this year’s participants and teams. “We want to improve upon the relay,” said Kendall, adding, “There are some who haven’t been involved recently and we encourage them to return and check it out.”

The Lower Valley Relay for Life kicks off at noon May 19 at Rich Leenhouts Stadium in Grandview and lasts until noon May 20. To learn more, visit the relay’s website at www.relayforlife.org/ grandviewwa. - Jennie McGhan can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email JMcGhan@DailySunNews.com

New team captain Dave learning the ropes Martin Family

by Laura Gjovaag

Amy Castro didn’t want to be team captain for the first year of Sunnyside Physical and Sports Therapy’s participation in Relay for Life. “I didn’t think I had the time for it,” she admitted. “Then my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I thought, ‘she doesn’t have the time and she doesn’t have a choice’.” And so Castro put together the company’s group of 16 competitors and set a goal of $1,000. The team bumped it up to $1,500 soon after. “We’re still going strong,” she said of the group’s fundraising efforts. The company decided to participate in the Relay for Life after having a meeting about what the company could do for the community. When the event was brought up, Castro was all for it. Perhaps due to her enthusiasm, her boss picked her to be the team captain. Since then, she has been learning about being a team leader for the event after having participated in it for years. “When I was at Lower Valley Credit Union we participated every year,” she said. “I knew what to expect as a team member, but a team captain needs to do much more.” She said she’s been attending the meetings and has been learning a lot. New captains have help from the organization and other team captains. A big challenge for her was getting a large enough group. “My husband got volunteered,” Castro laughed. But now the team is ready and the event is fast approaching. “We’re really looking forward to it,” she said. - Laura Gjovaag can be contacted at 509-837-4500,

Cancer gets personal for Wutzke’s Waddlers by Jennie McGhan

Janita Wutzke and Wutzke’s Waddlers have participated in the annual Lower Valley Relay for Life for 15 years. The team made up of family and friends began participating in the fight against cancer, supporting other friends who had survived the disease. However, in 2005, the fight became more personal for many members. Wutzke, her sister and another family member all had been diagnosed with cancer within a year. “I am a two-time survivor, my sister Shirley Delaney is a survivor and I have two sisters who have lost their husbands to cancer,” said Wutzke. The family and a few good friends make up a team of approximately 20. Their hope is they will help end cancer through fundraising efforts, supporting the annual Relay for Life. “There are currently 12 million survivors in the U.S. The chance of surviving cancer for five years or more is now 67 percent,” Wutzke said, stating hope is around the corner and research has improved the survival rate. She said because the research is photo courtesy of Janita Wutzke continuous and must be attacked Sisters Pat Beierle, Shirley Delaney, Janita Wutzke, Linda Wutzke, Nancy Schoenrock and Janie Eder display family pride at the from many different angles due to annual Lower Valley Relay for Life. the many types of cancer, it is important researchers receive the funding. “I believe they are closer to finding the cure, although I don’t know they will find it in my lifetime,” said Wutzke. Wutzke’s Waddlers begin fundraising efforts as early as the fall preceding each relay. “Last fall, we held a yard sale,” she said. The fundraising efforts continue through the actual event.

event, the team sells craft items. “We sell yard and garden ornaments…beaded jewelry and bird houses have been created for sales at the Relay for Life,” said Wutzke. “We also sell plants.” Last year, the team raised $5,000 and this year’s goal is $2,500. However, she expects the team to surpass the goal since more than three-quarters of the money has already been raised for the 2012 Lower Valley Relay for Life.

Veteran teams back with a vengeance in fight to eradicate cancer by Amber Schlenker

GRANDVIEW – This year raising funds for cancer research hits home for Robin Smith, co-captain of the McClure McWalkers. The McClure Elementary School staff members collaborate every year to raise funds and participate in the annual Relay for Life event in Grandview, forming McClure McWalkers. This year, however, Smith says

the efforts mean more to her and her family. “My father was diagnosed with leukemia,” she said. Earlier this year her father was told, “you have leukemia,” and since then, she says the procedures and findings he’s endured have largely been thanks to the cancer research. The luminary portion of the May 19-20 Relay for Life event will have representatives from Smith’s immediate family, honoring their father.

“He is still kicking, and that’s all that matters,” she said. Staff members at McClure have been raising funds this year and have reached and exceeded their fundraising goal of $1,500. Smith says the team of more than 30 teachers and staff members expect to collect more than $2,000 in funds. To help raise the money, the group has worked year-round selling lollipops, chips, water and snacks at school events, along with hosting a

potato feed and a barbeque for students and their families. But the McClure McWalkers aren’t the only ones driving full force on the fundraising front for the Grandview Relay for Life event scheduled for this Saturday, May 19. The Rebels with a Cause team, made up of Sunnyside Community Hospital employees and family members, were last year’s front runner for funds raised. see “Teams” next page

Teams continued from page 8 “We raised (more than) $10,000 last year,” said team captain Coleen Goulet. Though Goulet predicts the team won’t quite make it to the $10,000 benchmark in 2012, she says they’ve been fundraising since last October. The Rebels have hosted bake sales, pampered chef parties, bowling tournaments and many more events to help with the cause. And, the fundraising won’t stop for these Rebels. The team is set to host a concession booth and a raffle for a television, donated by TV Towne, at the May 19-20 Relay. Hospital departments have also pitched in, donating baskets for a silent auction. “We’ve made it a department competition, the department that brings in the most money from their basket will earn a pizza party,” Goulet added. One thing is for certain; both teams are getting ready and getting set to go, go, go at this year’s Relay for Life.
