Opening Thoughts

This will be the first Christmas our family will celebrate without my sister, Carman. I have experienced many mixed emotions as the holidays are fast approaching. I am sure the same may be true for you, if you recently lost a loved one. I have done some research to see if there is anything I can do to make the transition less painful for our entire family. After reviewing several websites I found the following advice to be extremely helpful and I thought it may help you also:

Strategies for Survival

Offer Yourself Some Grace The best thing you can do this holiday season is be kind to yourself. Give yourself permission to feel whatever it is your feeling.

Be Kind to Yourself

Get the rest and nourishment you need. Don’t take on any more than you can handle. If you need to be alone, honor that. If you crave the company and affection of others, seek it out. Do whatever it is that feels right to you.

Ask For and Accept Help

The holiday season is no time to feign strength and independence. You will need the help and support of others to get through. Don’t feel as though you are a burden. People get immense satisfaction and joy from helping those they care about.

Find Support

Sharing your feelings is the best way to get through them. You need people you can talk to. Friends and relatives can be a great support to us during times of grief. Here is a helpful website that assists with grief recovery (http://www.griefshare.org).

Make a Difference

Most of us like to help others during the holiday season. Taking the ornament off the tree at the mall, dropping our change in the charity basket, or donating to our favorite organization can help us feel like we are contributing to a greater good. Helping others in times of grief can help take the focus off yourself and your pain.

Stop the Comparisons It’s easy to watch other families and compare them to your own. Seeing other families together and enjoying the festivities may make you feel deprived. Keep in mind that the holidays are stressful for most families and are rarely the magical gatherings depicted in greeting cards. Try to embrace what you have rather than compare it to what you think others have.

Remember That You Will Survive

As hard as it is for you right now, you will survive. You will make it through the holidays in one piece. It may be the most difficult season in your time of grief, but it will pass. And when it does, you will come out on the other side stronger than before.

You don’t have to enjoy the holidays. You don’t even have to go through the motions pretending to enjoy the festivities. But, it’s also just fine to have a good time in spite of your grief. If happiness slips through your window of grief, allow it to happen and enjoy it. You won’t be doing your loved one an injustice by feeling joyous. The best gift you can give anyone you love, even someone you have lost, is being true to yourself and living your life to the fullest.

Lorrie Hartley Peace & Blessings,

Executive Director

PCRMC Dedicates Emergency Department to Jay Crump, D.O.

3

To celebrate the life of Jay Crump, D.O., Phelps County Regional Medical Center held a ceremony to dedicate the PCRMC Emergency Department in his name to honor his life’s work on Sunday, October 2, 2011. Dr. Crump, a highly respected physician and friend at PCRMC, served as the Medical Director of Emergency Services from 19842009 and VP/Chief Medical Officer from 1997 until his sudden passing in 2010. He was extremely passionate about the emergency department and watched it grow from a Foundation In Focus │ Winter 2011

five-bed facility to the 25 private rooms it is today. The ceremony was a casual event, representative of Dr. Crump’s style, featuring some of his favorite foods, music and drinks. Dr. Crump’s family, as well as PCRMC physicians, employees, and friends attended the event to pay tribute to Dr. Crump. The event included the unveiling of a plaque located by the emergency department, which is dedicated to the life of Dr. Crump and the service he provided for numerous patients throughout the years.


Phelps Regional Healthcare Foundation offers new giving opportunity:

The Jay Crump, D.O. Medical Scholarship Fund

Why was the fund started? The fund was started in 2011 to honor the life of Jay Crump, D.O. Dr. Crump joined PCRMC’s medical staff in 1981 and worked in the emergency room. He eventually became the Medical Director of Emergency Services from 1984-2009.

What is the purpose of the program?

The program is designed to promote and increase physician health services available to residents of Phelps County and the surrounding counties. A medical school scholarship would be offered for qualified medical students who are going into the area of family practice and maintain permanent residence in PCRMC’s service area. Also they would need to establish and maintain a full-time physician practice at PCRMC.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

Residents of Phelps County or surrounding counties located within PCRMC’s service area who have completed an undergraduate premedical degree program at an accredited college or university with a

good academic record, and have been accepted as full-time students at an accredited medical school, and who plan on going into family practice.

How much is the scholarship amount?

The scholarship funds are awarded one per year based on availability of funds, not to exceed $25,000 per year to provide necessary financial support for up to four years of medical school, and up to one per year of necessary financial support for a maximum of three years of a residency program. Payments are made directly to the school or other provider of approved education or other necessary services.

How can I make a donation? Please visit us online at www.pcrmc. com/giving or by mail at PO Box 261 Rolla, MO 65402.

Who should I contact?

Please contact Lorrie Hartley, Executive Director of Phelps Regional Healthcare Foundation, at (573) 4587946 for more information.

The Jay Crump, D.O., Medical Scholarship Fund has been established to assist those pursuing a medical career in family practice, Dr. Crump’s first love.

your donation is Researching with Care: Using Clinical Trials to Fight Cancer

cancer

Phelps County Regional Medical Center and the Delbert Day Cancer Institute strive to offer the very best in cancer care for local patients. One way PCRMC continues its commitment to fight cancer is through the availability of clinical trials. Now because of generous donors like you, patients are eligible to participate in clinical trials and still remain close to home.

What are clinical trials?

PCRMC is an affiliate of the Cancer Research for the Ozarks (CRO), which was funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). CRO is also known as the Ozarks Regional Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), and is designed to let local physicians offer their patients the same opportunities for cancer research trials as in a

Fighting

larger city. Clinical trials conducted at PCRMC follow the regulations designated by the NCI and CRO. Currently there are 48 other organizations like the CRO in the United States. Clinical trials are research programs that involve people. In cancer research, clinical trials are used to answer questions about the disease and discover new ways to treat it. Clinical trials are used in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer; they are also used in the management of cancer symptoms. Clinical trials follow very specific regulations and are particular about who can participate in the study. Each clinical trial is formulated with a precise plan, or method of study, called a protocol. The protocol explains what the trial is about and how it will be conducted. Each clinical trial


protocol clearly states the criteria for entering the trial. The criteria may specify a patient have a certain type or stage of cancer, or be a certain age. The reason that the criteria must be narrowed down is to keep the participants as similar as possible so the results are based off of a group that share comparable traits.

Clinical Research Nurse

Kristi Atkins, RN, BSN, is the Clinical Research Nurse for Oncology at PCRMC. Atkins began her job in August of this year and is excited that clinical trials are now available for people at the community level. “I like that we are now able to offer our cancer patients clinical trials close to home,” Atkins says. “Before, patients were driving several hundred miles, sometimes one way, to participate in a trial. Now, we are able to provide the same opportunities at the local level.” Atkins serves as the primary contact for patients who enter clinical trials. She is responsible for screening potential candidates, enrolling them in the study and monitoring them for the duration of the trial. “We screen every new patient and patients with a reoccurring cancer,” says Atkins. “If we find a trial that the patient may qualify for, we go over the details with him or her about the clinical trial and go

over the consent to participate. We encourage the patient to read it again and go over the pros and cons with family members.” Once a patient qualifies for a trial and agrees to participate, Atkins makes sure the signed consent is sent in and any other preliminary requirements. She then helps the patient stay on track with the study. “Some studies require the patient to come in every two weeks for blood work or tissue samples, while others require blood work and an answered survey form every three months,” she says. “It really depends on the protocol on what will be necessary for the patient to do. Some studies have the trial participants take a pill, and others test new chemotherapy drugs intravenously.” Ultimately, Atkins says her job is to ensure the patient is following the trial’s protocol, answer any questions and make sure the patient is comfortable with the process. “If a patient starts a trial and decides that he or she no longer wants to participate, I take them off the trial. Our number one focus is the patient, and if he or she is not comfortable with the trial, for whatever reason, we respect that decision,” she says.

Clinical Trials Underway

Atkins signed up her first patient for a clinical trial the last week in October 2011, and the patient began the trial on November 1. “We are really excited, to say the least,” says Atkins. “The patient is participating in a breast cancer trial and takes a pill once a day in addition to the regular treatment prescribed by the

patient’s physician. There is also a survey requirement for this trial, so every three months I meet with the patient, do blood-work and make sure the survey is filled out. The blood-work and the survey are then sent to a research bank in Florida.” A patient needs to decide whether or not participating in a clinical trial is something he or she would like to do. Atkins states there are always pros and cons, but finds some of the possible benefits are reassuring for some patients. “I have found that some people like the idea of participating in a trial because they feel they are more involved in their treatment process; that is, by enrolling in a trial, they are taking an active step towards their recovery and the decisions that affect their lives. Also, they like the idea that they have the chance to help other people with cancer and improve cancer treatments,” says Atkins. To learn more about PCRMC’s cancer research or be considered for a clinical trial, please contact Kristi Atkins at (573) 458-8776.

Blessing Debbie Cook

A Heartfelt

7

In November 2008, Debbie Cook was teaching a basic life-support class to other health care providers at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. Suddenly, the room started spinning and she felt sharp pain in the middle of her back. “I went to Carolyn, Community Outreach Liaison in Education, and told her Foundation In Focus │ Winter 2011

I needed her to take over my class because I wasn’t feeling very well,” Debbie says. “Carolyn told me that I looked pale, and asked what was going on. When I told her, she said, ‘Debbie, those are the classic symptoms of a heart attack’ and told me I needed to go to the Emergency Department.” Debbie says she was in denial, and claimed she just needed to rest for a while and would be fine. “I had just eaten lunch, and I thought I was having some indigestion,” she says. However, Carolyn insisted Debbie go to the ER, got a wheelchair and took her there. “Really, I should have known what was happening,” Debbie says. “I mean, I teach other people what to look for when there is a problem. I was so dizzy and couldn’t

catch my breath. It literally took me 12 minutes to walk into the hospital that day.”

Family History

There is a history of heart-related disease in Debbie’s family. Her father had six uncles die from heart disease, all in the age range of 53 to 54. She remembers her father bringing home a treadmill and rowing machine while he was in his mid-40’s. “He was exercising and changing his diet for us,” Debbie says about her two sisters and brother, as well as herself. “He wanted to make sure he was there while we grew up.” Her father’s diet and exercise plan worked: he is now 82 and living in Indiana. “When the episode with my heart happened, I was 53, and my family’s history


was running through my mind. I was worried I wouldn’t get to see my grandkids grow.” Debbie went in to see the doctor and completed a stress test, an EKG and had blood work done. When her results came back, she found out she had not had a heart attack, but had suffered from an angina attack, which is often caused from stress. “We all have stressors in our lives,” Debbie remarks, “and at that time my mother had passed away a month prior. I think the weight of her death compounded the normal stressors I was experiencing contributed to the attack; essentially, I was feeling overwhelmed when the attack occurred.” Debbie’s physician told her she had an 80% blockage and after having a cardiac catheterization, determined she would need a stent. A stent is a small mesh tube that is used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. They help prevent the artery from becoming blocked again and help increase blood flow. After the stent was put in, Debbie felt almost instant relief. “The pressure was gone, and I felt like myself again,” she says.

Cardiac Rehabilitation at PCRMC

Debbie’s physician also recommended 12 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation at PCRMC. Cardiac rehabilitation is a proven program designed to train the heart how to recover quickly from exercise.

Studies show that participants in cardiac rehabilitation significantly increase their quality of life and survival after a heart-related illness. “I wore a halter monitor, so I was wired the whole time I was doing exercises,” Debbie says. “The cardiac rehabilitation program was a progression of exercises with weights and movements with machines that gradually increased my endurance and ability to hold more weight and complete harder exercises.” Debbie worked with Helen Thomure, R.N. and Becky Thompson, R.N. for one hour, three times a week. “These ladies were great,” she says. “They were always there to encourage me; they really helped me improve. I can not say enough good things about PCRMC’s cardiac rehabilitation unit. It is filled with professionals who want to help you get better and stronger.”

Be Informed

Checking cholesterol is an important tool in preventing heart-related illness. Debbie recommends having it checked at least twice a year to make sure the levels are within the normal range. “Schedule a wellness check-up with your primary care physician,” she says. “If I would have done that, my doctor would have recognized my cholesterol was too high.” Pay attention to a family history of heart disease. “If your family has had several members with heart disease, chances are good that you might have problems too. Be

proactive; seek out your physician’s advice on what you should do to lower your risk,” Debbie says. Women often do not have the same symptoms as men when having a heart attack. “I had shortness of breath and was extremely dizzy, but the pain was not in the front of my chest or down my arm,” Debbie remembers. “Also, I was not nauseous. My pain radiated in the middle of my back. If you think something is wrong, have it checked out. You know what is normal or not. If you are experiencing pain or symptoms that you have never had before, go to the ER or call your doctor. Don’t wait to see if you feel better; time is of the essence, and every second counts.”

Counting Blessings

Debbie recalls people offering her encouragement during her treatment and recovery. One phrase in particular really spoke to her. “People would say ‘bless your heart’ after hearing my story. I don’t think anyone realized how much I appreciated those words; they literally encompassed everything I had been through. I realize how important it is to count your blessings every day, and I also know I had been blessed with surviving a heart illness.” Debbie has a lot of faith and attributes her experience to a bigger plan. “This is not about me,” she smiles, “God isn’t finished with me yet. There is still more to do.”

Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation

Welcomes Kathy Nickason to the Board of Directors

11

Kathy Nickason, President of PCRMC’s Auxiliary, has joined Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation’s Board of Directors. Kathy is an avid volunteer. Outside of her role at PCRMC, she has been active in Junior Club, Jaycee Wives, Planned Parenthood and OATS Theater, of which she is currently on the board of directors. She is also involved in Coterie and Coterie Book Club, the current President of Saturday Club, was a volunteer at the Russell House for several years and she belongs to a chapter of the PEO Sisterhood. Nickason is a Stephens minister with her church, which means she has gone through 50 hours of training to give one-on-one, confidential care to someone who is going through a crisis, like a divorce or the death of a loved one. Nickason says she is excited about the opportunity to sit on the Foundation’s board of directors. “I have found that a lot of what I do with the Auxiliary and what the Foundation does is similar; that is, both organizations have related goals: to be of service to the hospital,” she says. Nickason is looking forward to the next year and her involvement with the Foundation. “I am ready to help with anything I can,” she says. “The Foundation is an excellent organization, and I am eager to help.” Many of the current board members are friendly faces for Nickason. “I discovered I knew about half of the board, and the rest I had the pleasure to meet at our first meeting. Lori Moss and I worked together a million years ago at Missouri Home Care,” she laughs. “Well, not really a million years ago, but several. I am pleased to be working with some great people and am excited to see some projects that the Auxiliary and the Foundation can focus on together.” Foundation In Focus │ Winter 2011

“Comedy

Uncorked” Because of You!

The Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation hosted a “Because of John Denbo You” donor appreciation CEO party at Leach Theater on October 6, 2011. The event allowed the Foundation Board members an opportunity to say Ted Day Foundation Board “thank you” to all donors President for their generosity over the past year. 230 contributors attended the event; several wineries and a local Donna East brewery were featured, Comedian including St. James Winery, Three Squirrels Winery, Peaceful Bend Vineyard, Heinrichshaus Vineyard and Winery, and The Public House Brewing Company. Known as New York City’s “Queen of Clean,” comedian Donna East headlined the entertainment for the night. Donna’s performance was hands-on and focused on audience participation. John Denbo, CEO of Phelps County Regional Medical Center and Ted Day, Foundation Board President were both great sports and could not have said “thank you” to our donors in a more personal and heartwarming way. The evening was full of fun, great food and wine, laughter and wonderful recognitions. Without the continued support and giving spirit of you, our donors (individuals, employees, volunteers, community members, vendors and businesses), the Foundation would not be able to be able to help a boy get a prosthetic leg, assist a cancer patient with medication, or help a mother get a life-saving mammogram. It’s Because of You!


Panera Bread Sells Pink Ribbon Bagel Portion of Proceeds Benefit Delbert Day Cancer Institute

Panera Bread of Rolla invited the community to help in the fight against cancer by purchasing a Pink Ribbon Bagel during the month of October, which is National Breast Cancer Month. Panera’s signature Pink Ribbon Bagel is made of cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar. The bagels are made fresh every day in Panera’s bakery-cafés, and honor the tradition of “thinking pink” for the month of October in the mission to end breast cancer. During the month of October, a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of every Pink Ribbon Bagel sold at Panera was donated to the Delbert Day Cancer Institute, which offers cutting edge cancer services in radiation oncology, medical oncology and clinical trials. This year, Panera presented a check for $650.75 to the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation. To learn more about the Delbert Day Cancer Institute, please call Lorrie Hartley, Executive Director, Phelps Regional Healthcare Foundation at (573) 458-7946.

Key Sport Shop raises $300 for Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation Pictured left to right: Lorrie Hartley, Stacey Mahaney, Key Sport Shop, Alisa Green, Jake Fester, Angie Reese, Terri Brookshire, Jamie Sturgeon, and Helen Litz During the month of October, Key Sport Shop of Rolla was in the pink as they sold tye-dye pink and white t-shirts inscribed with the iconic pink ribbon and Key Sport logo to benefit the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation’s Breast Center Mammography Fund. A total of $300.00 was raised and a check was presented by Key Sport Shop staff to Lorrie Hartley, Executive Director, Phelps Regional Healthcare Foundation, and Helen Litz, Breast Center Coordinator, Phelps County Regional Medical Center on November 16. The funds raised will directly benefit women who financially qualify for free mammograms.

The Centre raises $700 for Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation Pictured left to right: Helen Litz, Scott Caron, Lorrie Hartley, Josh Stephens, Karen Richards, Amber Richardson, and Julie Rodgers

Personal fitness trainers and staff at The Centre, Rolla’s Health and Recreation complex, held a series of events recently to raise awareness and funds for the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation Breast Center. During the month of October The Centre sold tye-dye black and pink bracelets that read “PCRMC & THE CENTRE BATTLE BREAST CANCER”; and sold shirts while hosting an amazing event in conjunction with andFLEW! Studios on Oct. 24 called “Cardio for a Cure.” A total of $707.50 was raised during all of these events, and a check was presented by Karen Richards, Fitness Supervisor at The Centre, to Lorrie Hartley, Executive Director, Phelps Regional Healthcare Foundation, and Helen Litz, Breast Center Coordinator, Phelps County Regional Medical Center. “The funds raised from these events support a great cause, and hopefully continue to raise the awareness of breast cancer,” said Scott Caron, Recreation Director at The Centre. “The dollars generated by members of the Centre and the community is equivalent to the cost of at least two mammograms. Now, two women who unfortunately might not have had the opportunity to have a mammogram will be able to.” Foundation In Focus │ Winter 2011
