And, this year’s event is going to be bigger and better than ever to celebrate 10 years of success! The staff at the Bismarck Cancer Center is working hard to bring new and exciting things to entertain people of all ages! But what makes the Applefest so great? Is it the charming small town atmosphere? The apple pie eating contest? Or the countless variety of fresh apple treats, caramel apples, ciders and other fall goodies? “What began as a way to bring the community out to lend support to local individuals with cancer, has grown into a family tradition to attend year after year,” Bismarck Cancer Center board member Loren Balkowitsch says. It’s a family event with many activities for the kids, like a petting zoo, hay rides, paintball, inflatables, face painting and arts & crafts. But this year, we are adding even more fun for the family! Melissa Klein, coordinator of Applefest said, “We have many new activities for the older kids, like rock climbing walls, a dunk tank and summo wrestling inflatables to bring more opportunity for fun and play!” There will also be a parade each day with a marching band at 12 p.m. to kick off festivities. New this year is a Guinness World Record attempt for the most people bobbing for apples! This will take place Saturday at 3 p.m. with a goal to have 625 individuals bobbing for apples.You don’t want to miss it! Another new event is the ‘Apple of My Eye’ pageant. This pageant is sponsored by Hollevoet Orthodontics and will be open for girls ages 4-9. Miss Appleseed is for girls ages 4-6 and Miss Apple Blossom features girls ages 7-9. Each girl will participate in a simple question and answer, a fun Applefest costume fashion show, and a talent show. Our local judges are excited to celebrate each contestant with prizes awarded to all who participate. And we can’t forget the adults! For the second year in a row, we are bringing back the North Dakota Food, Beer, and Wine Tasting Event. This will take place from 2:00-5:00 p.m. on Saturday. This will be a great opportunity to try local beer and wine samples and food, while enjoying the company of family and friends. What is a festival without delicious food? We have more food than ever this year with 15 local vendors, including Norm Stetson, who brings his popular burgers from Norm’s Eatery to the Applefest. “Norm’s is a full blown kitchen on wheels,” he says. He enjoys the family friendly atmosphere and says, “I’m known out here as the ‘burger guy’!” From Fire Flour Pizza, to a serving of apple pie fries with a dollop of whipped cream, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Make plans to experience for yourself all that makes Applefest unquestionably one of the best festivals this fall!

Just Never Give Up It’s been a very busy summer at the Bismarck Cancer Center! Many wonderful things are taking place with our Foundation – from golf and softball tournaments to bluegrass concerts and horseback rides.
Amy Gross Interim Executive Director
There are so many people in the community who are dedicated in helping us provide hope, help and healing to the people we serve. However, missing from all this excitement is the one person who had always relished the hustle and bustle of these activities. It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to our Executive Director Ken Dykes earlier this summer. While his absence is felt among many, we have found comfort in knowing his legacy remains strong. I’d like to thank everyone who reached out to support the staff at BCC during our time of loss. Your kind words and your overwhelming admiration for Ken is uplifting. As a way of honoring Ken and all he had done for the Center over the past nine years, it was our privilege to dedicate
BISMARCK CANCER CENTER
a beautiful “welcome” bench outside of the Center. The bench is adorned with a plaque that reads: “Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” ~ Dean Karnazes. As a nine-year cancer survivor, Ken lived by those words and all of us here at the Bismarck Cancer Center want you to know that we are here to help you at your time of need. We will continue to provide compassionate care, world-class technology and unending support to you and your family.

BISMARCK CANCER CENTER
That end-of-summer, dry heat was still beating down on the North Dakota prairie. Students in the small town of Linton were preparing for school. The football players were hoping for a great season as they dragged themselves to practice, and, for the most part, 16-year-old Jared Jacob was a lot like any other kid his age. But by the time Jared turned 17, just two months later, everything had changed. The football coach, wanting his star running back to be ready for the first game, suggested that Jared see a doctor about the back pain he had been having. So Jared hopped into the MRI truck that visits Linton a few times a month. What they thought was simple back pain from helping his parents landscape their yard turned out to be something much more. “Honestly, if it wasn’t for football, we would have never found it. He wanted to be ready to play. He loves the game and just wanted to run the ball,” said Jared’s mom, Denette Jacob. The MRI scan showed a mass in Jared’s hip. A biopsy confirmed that it was a sarcoma. Boutique Twenty-Three, Linton, ND
At first, Jared’s doctors told him that he wouldn’t be able to play football during his treatments. The chemotherapy and radiation would make him too weak, and it wouldn’t be safe. “I think one of the only times I saw him cry was when they told him he couldn’t play. I watched out the kitchen window after he got home that night, and he just threw his pads down and cried,” Denette said. So Jared and his parents asked his oncologists if there was any way he could still play while undergoing treatment. Although it would be difficult and he would have to be extra careful, they agreed. And Jared went about his life as normally as possible. He still juggled school, family, and a social life. Only now, he also had to fit in regular trips to Bismarck for treatments. Most importantly, he put his pads back on and played the game he loved. Meanwhile, the surrounding communities showered the Jacob family with love and support. Everyone in Linton and the surrounding small towns knew about “Number 23” and his dedication and bravery. “It was so emotional, really. I could never be grateful enough,” Denette said, “And when he scored that first touchdown after the doctors
BISMARCK CANCER CENTER
said he could come back, the whole crowd – everyone in the stands – went wild.” After football season ended, Jared finished his chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He eventually had to have surgery on his hip, where the sarcoma was located. It left him with poor range of motion, and doctors warned that he might not be able to walk. Jared didn’t let that stop him. Again, he beat the odds and went on to win the school dance competition the following fall. Through it all, this 17-year-old high school kid remained grateful, hopeful, and happy. During his senior year, Jared was diagnosed with leukemia. The disease was very aggressive and sadly he didn’t make it to his 20th birthday. His family lost their comedian, their happy-golucky guy, their thoughtful presence. While preparing for his funeral, Jared’s family found a letter he had written them. He explained that he was grateful that he had been chosen for this particular journey. He was happy that it all had happened to him rather than his siblings or parents. This message left his family with a tiny piece of him and showed them the way toward hope and gratitude instead of anger. Since losing Jared, the Jacob family has continuously given back to other individuals and families who are battling cancer. Every summer, Denette and her family host a golf tournament and purse auction. The proceeds usually go to a cancer patient in their area; however, in 2015 the proceeds from the event went to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. “Jared had treatments at the Bismarck Cancer Center, and it’s such an awesome place,” Denette said, “I like knowing that the money is going to patients right here in North Dakota.” Denette’s business in Linton, Boutique TwentyThree, also participated in project HOPE this year because, for the Jacob family, it’s all about giving back. And although it hurts every day not having her son here with her, Denette says that Jared’s battle with cancer taught her what was really important in life. “If God had come to me and given me the choice – either you can have this really great, cool son for 19 years, but then I need to take him away, or you can choose not have him at all – it’s such an easy answer. I would choose to be Jared’s mom every time,” she said.
BCCF EVENTS Mandan Fourth of July Road Race Early on the morning of July fourth, about 500 runners of all ages participated in the 2016 Mandan Fourth of July Road Race. Many participants were dressed in festive red, white, and blue outfits to celebrate Independence Day while enjoying each otherâ€™s company and running to benefit the Bismarck Cancer Center. The runners took off amidst applause and cheers from onlookers lining the sides of the road.
Running With Demons The Running With Demons Road Race and Color Run on July 9th was an exciting event for friends and family of the Bismarck Demons as well as for runners from the area. Runners of all ages enjoyed the scenic run around Sertoma Park and posed for pictures in their rainbowcolored shirts afterwards. Whether running or walking, everyone had a great time while supporting both the Demons and the Bismarck Cancer Center.
Dancer for Cancer The Bismarck Cancer Center enjoyed a fun Dancer for Cancer Zumbathon on August 9. The event was sponsored by Country Financial and took place in the Bismarck Cancer Center parking lot. Instructors from local gyms took turns leading the enthusiastic crowd in various Zumba moves and exercises. More than 50 people participated in this second annual event.
BCCF NEWS Dickinson Project HOPE The fourth annual Dickinson project HOPE event was held July 18-22. This event had around 20 participating businesses and raised over $6,000! Project HOPE is a community wellness event designed to educate employees about healthy lifestyles, cancer prevention and early detection and to promote hope for a healthier tomorrow. To participate in project HOPE, each employee was asked to make a donation of $10 to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation. In return for their donation and participation, Bismarck Cancer Center provided each business with posters, an awareness newsletter, stickers, wellness information and more.
Bluegrass A sea of pink covered the Cross Ranch State Park during the 5th annual Bluegrass Goes Pink concert. The concert was organized by local bluegrass band Cotton Wood, which features Bismarck Cancer Center nurse Jill Wiese in honor of her sister Barb, who lost her battle with cancer. In addition, a Florida bluegrass band, Trinity River Band, was on hand to play a few songs. Bluegrass Goes Pink started out the day with a 5k Run/Walk through the beautiful Cross Ranch State Park. Later that afternoon, attendees were able to go on a wagon ride throughout the park. We are grateful to the Cotton Wood and Jill Wiese for this inspirational event!
Harleywood Nights The 4th annual Harleywood Nights started out with the rev of loud engines and sprinkles of rain on Saturday, July 16. The event was a success with around 50 riders, even though dark clouds and hail followed the riders on their path to a good cause. The event started at the Roughrider Harley-Davidson and the route included Center, Washburn, Wilton, and Wing and ended at the Corral Bar with dinner, live auction and a band. There was a 2016 Harley Davidson Fatboy raffled off to end the night. Proceeds will benefit the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.
Saddle Up Against Cancer Saddle up Against Cancer is an event that combines the love of horses with supporting the patients at the Bismarck Cancer Center. The 9th Annual horseback ride happened on Saturday, August 13 with 93 riders taking part. The ride took place on a farm south of Riverdale and took around two hours. The riders wound through beautiful hills and trees near the Missouri River. The participants enjoyed lunch following the trail ride and the afternoon was topped off with a silent auction and raffle.
Mattress Firm Provides Comfort in Patient Housing The Bismarck Cancer Center provides several affordable housing options for patients who commute from longer distances. Like any home, these houses and apartments need to be updated on a regular basis. This year, Mattress Firm has generously donated eight queen size Sealy mattresses to the Bismarck Cancer Center for use in patient housing. The value of this donation is $9,600. We would like to express our gratitude for Mattress Firmâ€™s support.

DAY OF CARING The Bismarck Cancer Center participated in United Wayâ€™s Day of Caring.Volunteers from Wells Fargo, and other individuals, joined in to help with various jobs around the cancer center. The biggest project involved painting ten of our patient apartment living room and kitchen areas to give a freshened-up look. In addition, volunteers also helped with landscaping work at an apartment complex as well as the front of the cancer center. We are so appreciative of all the volunteers who made this event possible! Thank you!
