Olney unites for first local Relay for Life event BY MINDI KIMBRO EDITOR@OLNEYENTERPRISE.COM The Àrst-ever Relay for Life event in Olney drew a huge crowd of teams and residents to Cub Stadium on Friday, April 27. According to Dr. Jeremy Johnson, who co-chaired the event along with his wife, Trina, more than 400 people were present at the track to enjoy the festivities at one time during the night of activities. “It was just a variety of emotions,” Johnson said of the evening, which brings together survivors, caretakers and family members of those who have lost the Àght with cancer to help raise money for the American Cancer Society. The evening kicked off with an opening ceremony featuring comments from

Survivors, caretakers honored

BY MINDI KIMBRO EDITOR@OLNEYENTERPRISE.COM

Olney has been hit particularly hard by cancer in the past, and has lost a large number of residents to different forms of the disease. That is one of the many reasons why some of the most emotional parts of the entire Relay for Life event this past weekend occurred in the opening ceremony when cancer survivors and their caretakers took to

the track to make special laps. All caretakers and survivors were invited to register for the event, and were treated to a private meal on Tuesday, April 24, before participating in the festivities on Friday night. Cancer survivors, almost all dressed in special purple shirts signifying their status, took the Àrst lap together in a show of solidarity, and many expressed their joy at being able to participate in such

an event. “It gives me hope,” said survivor Linda Barrier, a breast cancer survivor who took the opening lap with the support of her sister, Susanne Nier. “I really feel there will be a cure for cancer. I’ve survived 20 years and I’m going to survive another 30.” Another breast cancer survivor, Nita Hearne, echoed those sentiments. She has

been cancer free for four years. “It shows a lot of community support,” Hearne said of the event and the large crowd it drew. “It’s neat to see all the other survivors out - some you didn’t even know were survivors!” After the survivors’ lap, they were joined on the track by caregivers who had supported them and others who had passed on for another emotional lap. One caregiver who took the lap was Carla Perry, whose husband, L.F. Perry, beat prostate cancer many years ago. “(This event) means that it is possible, and I hope in the near future, that we’ll have a cure. This many people just brings it out in the open more.” Perry related her experiences as a caretaker on many levels, beginning 20 or more years ago with her status as a wife who simply urged her husband to get examined once his PSA test levels began to show an increase. Once L.F. was diagnosed, Perry said her role shifted

and she began helping to physically and mentally care for him as he fought and beat the disease. “As a caregiver and family member I urge early detection,” Perry said. “L.F. survived cancer because of it.”

Oral Cancer Facts: Close to 40,000

Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. Oral cancer screening is a routine part of a dental examination. Regular check up, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. You may have a very small, but dangerous, oral spot or sore and not be aware of it.

goods and other items Friday at the stadium. For the Fleming Fighters, the choice to participate was personal. According to Keeley Rollings, team captain, the participants signed up to help due to one individual. “We did it to help support our principal, who was recently diagnosed,” Rollings said. OHS Principal Steve Fleming underwent treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer earlier this year, and was present at the Relay for Life on Friday. As for Connected for Hope, the team from Brazos Companies, the choice of whether or not to sign up was simple. “It was good for us and the community,” said Billie Mullins, team captain. “We’ve got a bunch of employees who like to do this stuff, and cancer has affected most of our families.

Contests, games made night fun

While there was still much business to be handled at the event, and even more fundraising to do, the Relay for Life of Olney also offered team members and citizens in attendance a variety of ways to have a good time and stay up all night long celebrating, remembering and Àghting back. Many teams sold chances for items, offered food and drinks or held auctions for the public.

Most Spirited individual was Leigh Stephens of the Our Journey Helps Save RACE WINNER – The entry from Tower Extrusions in the Road to Recovery Race (above) won the event, while the Lemon Award went to the entry from Drilling for a Cure (below left).
