Applefest ‘Drive-in’ Concert Series 2020

Applefest should be celebrating its 14th year at the historic Buckstop Junction, but this year like so many other events, due to the pandemic things will look different. Organizers of Applefest say, amid safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus, this year’s event will consist of a ‘drive in concert’ at the Bismarck Community Bowl along with various virtual events people can take part in throughout the week. Applefest organizer, Melissa Klein says, due to safety concerns surrounding the corona virus, this year’s event will have to be a socially distanced event, “We have been brainstorming and listening to staff ideas and we want to be able to hold an in-person, safe event. So we decided we are going to host a ‘Drive in Concert’ for Applefest instead. When life gives you apples, make cider!” People will be able to drive into the Community Bowl parking lot and a music stage will be set up by the ticket booths. They’ll be able to order ‘concessions’ and be served car-hop style by the Bismarck Cancer Center staff. Most people would agree the best part of Applefest is the combination of a family fun event while helping to make a difference to those on their cancer journey.

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride that we have served this community for the past twenty-one years!

Amy Gross

The mission of the Bismarck Cancer Center is to make available the highest quality, state-of-the-art cancer care to all those in need. Our 13,000 square foot building has been a place of healing for over two decades. We are proud to announce the most recent plan for expansion to our facility is underway and will be completed late 2021! The goal of our Board of Trustees, representing Sanford Bismarck and CHI St Alexius, has been two-fold: to meet the needs of those who come through our doors and to never turn anyone away because of a lack of ability to care for them. This expansion will help us meet the growing needs of our cancer community’s and ensure their satisfaction for years to come.

Executive Director

We beam with pride because during the past year over 850 people chose Bismarck Cancer Center to receive their cancer care. That number has increased year after year, and our staff has more than tripled since BCC’s inception in 1999. As you can imagine, it has become increasingly difficult to accommodate our clinic volume without consistently extending our treatment hours. The need for cancer care is projected to trend upward over the next 10 years due to increased screening and more cancer diagnoses, the aging population in ND, and the ability to provide more treatment options than ever before. We feel it’s important to be proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past 21 years. We always find ways to grow, challenge ourselves to go the extra mile, and look for opportunities to better serve this community. Knowing the impact that exceptional cancer care means to this region, BCC has been financially planning for several years for this $14 million renovation. We look forward to the addition of a third linear accelerator (treatment machine), an additional CT scanner, renovations to the 1st floor and the building of a 2nd floor. While the cancer center will cover the majority of the costs to bring more exam rooms, family counseling rooms, support services space, as well as meeting room and procedure room space, we will be asking for your help through a capital campaign to complete this project. I’d like to thank you ahead of time, for your support! We take pride in the services we’ve provided over the years and look forward to being a place of hope and healing for years to come…a cancer center this community can be proud of!

don’t wait until you reach your goal to be proud of yourself. be proud of every step you take. www.positivitysparkles.com


GET TO KNOW YOUR TEAM

ask a pro With Dr. Cole Kreofsky, Radiation Oncologist, BCC Q: I just finished up treatment for colon cancer last month. I’m wondering when I’m considered a survivor?? A: An individual diagnosed with cancer is considered a survivor from the moment of diagnosis. Family members and caregivers affected by a person’s diagnosis are also considered cancer survivors. Cancer survivorship is the experience of living with, through, and beyond cancer. Today, more people than ever are surviving cancer because of better treatments, prevention, and early detection. As a result, much more attention is being placed on the long term adjustment of patients and their families to the physical, emotional, and practical impacts of a cancer diagnosis. Having cancer is often one of the most stressful experiences in a person’s life. In response to these needs, many clinical programs that attend to the needs of patients are referred to as ‘support groups’. The Bismarck Cancer Center and the surrounding areas, offer multiple groups for survivors and their loved ones to help you through your cancer journey. For a complete list of cancer support groups in your area, go to www.bismarckcancercenter.com or call (701)-222-6100.

Dr. john watkins Dr. John Watkins grew up in Hobart, IN in a small town, east of Chicago. He knew he wanted to educate and motivate people from a young age and attended Butler University for college, where he majored in Chemistry and Spanish. He then went onto medical school at Indiana University, where he decided oncology was the field for him. Dr. Watkins worked at the Bismarck Cancer Center for five years and left while his wife finished medical school in Iowa. After covering 16 radiation oncology clinics over the last decade, he feels that the Bismarck Cancer Center is by far the best place to work.

Bismarck Cancer Center monthly giving campaign

This is a very common story for individuals receiving treatment at the Bismarck Cancer Center (BCC). Daily treatments create stress and financial concerns during what is already a very difficult time. To help, the BCC provides patient lodging, gas cards and a host of wrap-around services to ease these burdens during cancer treatment. Patients and their families receive gas cards or stay in one of our fully furnished apartments within walking distance to the Cancer Center. These apartments create a safe home away from home, allowing the individual and family to focus on healing. The Bismarck Cancer Center’s Circle of Hope is a monthly donation program to help form income to fund services such as these. It’s the easiest way to

For as little as $.50 per day, or $15 per month, your participation in the Circle of Hope monthly giving program helps provide a one-night stay for a patient.

SUPPORT BEAT ~ HEALING ART The Bismarck Cancer Center Healing Art classes are taught by art teacher, Nina Loeks and they are open to survivors and caregivers in our region. Loeks feels that the classes are a positive outlet for those on their cancer journey, “I think this class is different simply because of the close connection that the cancer survivors feel towards one another,” said Loeks. “The participants love that we try so many things and they love the studio and its atmosphere. Nina is so talented and is able to make us all feel loved and cared for. She gives us so much positive feedback and encourages us, even when we think we can’t do the project. Armed with this new confidence helps us to battle cancer.” And, the camaraderie that survivors feel during the art classes is priceless, “I instantly feel a bond with a person once I learn about them being a cancer patient or survivor. I feel that I can be empathic to a whole new level, a level above and beyond with them,” says participant Janet Nitschke, “I feel like I belong and that I am able to share with them to an even deeper level than most can comprehend.” You don’t have to be an artist to attend the Healing Art Class and the only requirement is an open mind and the ability to hold a pencil or paintbrush. Classes are held the first Tuesday of every month from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and are open to all cancer survivors, families, and caregivers at Art from the Heart, located at 311 N. Mandan St, #4 in Bismarck. For more information, call 701-222-6145.


A COMMUNITY WELLNESS EVENT BISMARCK CANCER CENTER

BISMARCK/MANDAN projectHOPE

Independent Community Banks of ND

The week of July 27, 167 Bismarck/Mandan businesses participated in project HOPE, an exciting week-long community event building awareness and providing wellness tips to employees. This community wellness event is designed to educate employees about healthy lifestyles, cancer prevention, and early detection, and to promote hope for a healthier tomorrow. Participating businesses allow their employees to dress casually and wear the cancer ribbon colors on the designated days in support of cancer awareness. Featured cancers for 2020 project HOPE week included: Head/Neck, Colorectal, Lung, and Breast Cancer. On the last day of project HOPE week, we celebrated Survivorship! In 2020, project HOPE participants donated over $19,000 to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation to support ongoing programs. We are so grateful for the many businesses and individuals who took part in the 2020 project HOPE!

tech corner Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation Many women choose accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) therapy for breast cancer radiation treatment. APBI involves a shorter course of treatment and a smaller area of the breast than other types of radiation therapy. During treatment, a soft balloon attached to a thin catheter is placed inside the tumor bed at the time of surgery. In order to deliver radiation, a tiny radioactive source is placed within the balloon by a computer controlled machine. The radiation is delivered from inside directly to the tissue surrounding the cavity where cancer is most likely to recur. This allows for only a portion of the breast to receive treatment, sparing radiation to the whole breast.

Mandan Rodeo

BCC’s night with the larks/ farmers union donation

The Bismarck Cancer Center’s night with the Larks on July 23 was a perfect evening with great friends and excellent baseball. The Larks team wore custom pink Bismarck Cancer Center jerseys that were auctioned off through an online auction to raise over $6,000 for the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation! Vivian, the pink firetruck, made an appearance, and fans donated to the BCCF with the Miracle Minute dash for cash. To top everything off, a surprise donation of $2,000 from Farmers Union Insurance was presented to the Bismarck Cancer Center right before the start of the game. We are so appreciative of the overwhelming community support for our Foundation and those we serve.

boxers & beer

It was sad news when we had to make the decision to cancel this year’s Boxers and Beer event, rescheduled for August 19. Since the event was originally scheduled for April, the silent auction items were starting to collect a little dust, and so the event committee hosted a virtual silent auction to keep the fun going. It was a success, and the event raised over $10,000 for the BCCF. We are so grateful for the event organizer McQuade Distributing and all they do for our Foundation! BIS MAR

Rodeo fans and contestants came from all over for the Mandan Rodeo Days July 2-4 event. This legendary rodeo celebrated its 141st anniversary in 2020 with exceptional performances. The Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation was fortunate enough to receive funds from the Mandan Rodeo Days 2020 charity raffle. Supporting businesses include Walkers N Daughters Jewelers of Bismarck, Prairie Patriot Firearms of Mandan, Double HH Guns of Bismarck, Mandan Sporting Goods, Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, and Louis Ousley Post American Legion Auxiliary of Wilton. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to the charity chair, Sarah Gratton, and the entire rodeo committee for supporting the BCCF this year.

bluegrass/ health-wise

Bluegrass Goes Pink is a bluegrass fundraising concert held every July at Cross Ranch State Park. In 2020, we put a little twist on this event and moved the Cottonwood bluegrass concert to the Bismarck Cancer Center parking lot on July 30. The concert was showcased on Facebook Live, and the Health-wise cancer education event was held in conjunction with the concert. There was indeed something for everyone, including education booths, music, ice cream, popcorn, and an inflatable walk-through colon compliments of the ND Dept. of Health. It was a great evening of entertainment and education.

Beer and Boutiques

The fourth annual Beers & Boutiques event was held July 16 in downtown Bismarck. During this event, participants followed a map to different boutiques in the downtown area to shop exclusive sales, try beer samples, and get their Beer Passports stamped. We would like to thank McQuade Distributing and the Downtowners for making this event happen!

W

e recently teamed up with the Steier Group, a development consulting company, to lead us through a feasibility study. Their goal was to determine the community’s level of support for BCC to move forward with an expansion project that will improve radiation oncology care for this region. It was essential for us to know how the community felt about the importance of this project. I’d like to personally thank those of you who participated in our planning study. We received an incredible response from the community, feedback that is extremely EHQHÀFLDODVZHORRNWR%&&·VIXWXUH After gathering data from the study, representatives from the Steier Group UHSRUWHGWKHLUÀQGLQJVWR%&&OHDGHUVKLS The feedback the Steier Group provided showed an overwhelming level of support.

You, members of our community, agreed that we do indeed need an expansion and renovation to provide additional equipment and space to further support the Center’s mission and those we serve.
