MARYSVILLE — In the month of October, thousands of Americans choose to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in different ways. In Snohomish County, that includes the thousands who have been diagnosed with the life-threatening illness. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed among women in the United States in 2011. One of the women diag-

nosed was Wanzellia Clark, a sixth-grade science teacher at Marysville Middle School. “I went to the doctor in 2011 because I had a pain in my elbow,” said Clark. “It was strange because my mother had colon cancer and one of her symptoms was transferred pain. Her arm was always hurting.” The pain in Clark’s elbow turned out to be the least of her worries after her doctor issued a mammogram, which came back with unusual results. “They compared the mammogram from 2009 to the SEE CANCER, PAGE 2

The city of Marysville has again applied for a federal grant to clean up the Geddes Marina property, on the Ebey waterfront, and is inviting to public to an open house on the subject on Oct. 24.

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville invites the public to an open house on Wednesday, Oct. 24, to discuss a federal grant for cleaning up the Geddes Marina property, on the Ebey waterfront, that the city bought in July of 2010. The open house will take place from 6-7 p.m. in the large meeting room of the Marysville Library, located at 6120 Grove St. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the city’s appli-

their best to help her through the struggle, but she also sought the encouragement of those who had already survived the disease. “Shirley was very supportive. It was helpful to talk to someone who has already been through it,” she said. Shirley Dickerson, a school psychologist at Marysville Middle School, is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 5, 2002. “It’s still hard to talk about it, even though it’s been 10 years,” she said. She was living in Nevada at the time, and her family lived in the Seattle area. “Nothing even showed up in the mammogram. They sent a sample to Salt Lake City and then they called me on the phone. The doctor wasn’t telling me it was cancer, he just wanted me to come into the office,” said Dickerson. “I went after work and then he told me. I was in shock.” The next several months were wrought with pain — both physical and emotional. “They ran all these tests that no one should have to go through,” she said. “The doctor told me they would begin with a partial lumpectomy, to do the least amount that they can.” But the lumpectomy did not successfully remove all of the cancer. “I went back a few days later and he said, ‘I’m sorry but we didn’t get clean margins. We have to do a mastectomy.’” Dickerson moved from Nevada to Washington to be closer to her family follow-

ing her surgery. “It happened so fast and it was so much at once. A new job, a new place to live and cancer.” The emotional toll was significant. “The following fall after my surgery, I could tell I was getting depressed. I cried and cried. I wasn’t dealing with the loss of a body part,” she said. It took some time, but she managed to pull herself up out of that emotional state. “I was finally accepting that I couldn’t deal with it on my own.” This year, Dickerson, has undergone two reconstructive surgeries at the University of Washington medical center to rebuild the breast that she lost. “You don’t have to have silicone implants. You can do an implant of fat from the abdomen that will reshape the breast mound,” she said. “They include the veins to give the breast a blood supply so that it is more natural. It’s a very extensive surgery.” For her and many other breast cancer survivors, not being able to feel feminine was one of the worst longterm impacts of the surgery. “I’m very happy with doing this. It really did change me, it freed me up to be a whole woman. I mean, I didn’t go all Dolly Parton,” she laughed. “But it freed me up to wear clothes that I couldn’t wear before. My doctor gave me my body back.” For both Clark and Dickerson, the support that they received from other breast cancer survivors is important for them to pass on to others who are going through the same terrible process.

sure that they take care of their bodies. “Remember to get your mammogram,” she said. “That’s a big one. If I had skipped another year, I would have been terminal.” Marysville services providing free or low-cost breast health screenings and mammograms include Planned Parenthood and Sea Mar Community Health Center.

“It is scary if you don’t know anyone who has gone through it,” said Dickerson. “I thought I was a strong person. I am a strong person. But it’s okay to be sad. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to grieve.

one from 2011. I had missed my annual exam in 2010,” said Clark. “I could see it. I said, ‘Well, what’s that right there?’ It just wasn’t right.” After a needle biopsy confirmed what Clark and her physician already feared, Clark was in shock. “The biopsy came back showing it was cancer. I could already see it very clearly on the mammogram, but you are just hoping that’s not what it is,” she said. Clark was diagnosed with stage II triple negative breast cancer, an aggressive subtype of the illness. According to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, subtypes of breast cancer are generally diagnosed based upon the presence or lack of three receptors known to fuel most breast cancers: estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). The most successful treatments for breast cancer target these receptors. None of these receptors are found in women, such as Clark, with triple negative breast cancer. A triple negative breast cancer diagnosis means the tumor is estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative and HER2-negative. The disease produced a lump the size of a jelly bean in Clark’s breast and had already spread to her lymph nodes and grown to half its original size there when it was discovered. “If I had waited one more year before getting a mammogram, it would have been very likely terminal,” said Clark. Once she was diagnosed, Clark’s life changed drastically. She underwent a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and

radiation. “All of my hair fell out right before Christmas and that was really upsetting,” she said. “I had hair down past the middle of my back, almost to my rear end. I had it cut first and sent to Locks of Love. I knew it was going to fall out anyway and I figure someone should be able to use it.” The timing of the diagnosis was particularly stressful for Clark, who had just adopted her 3-year-old daughter Jayden in June of 2011 — her cancer would be discovered only two months later. Each member of Clark’s family supported her in their own way. Her 17-year-old son Alexander, a student at Marysville-Pilchuck currently enrolled in the Running Start program, gave her a sticker that said, “Cancer Sucks” and her 28-year-old daughter Annamaria helped to care for Jayden. Her father was the one who shaved her head before Christmas. “My dad, daughter and son were so supportive,” said Clark. “I was so sick I couldn’t get off the couch some days. I lost close to 30 pounds, no food was staying down. You feel really depleted, because you can’t take any healthy vitamins because the whole process is trying to destroy the cancer.” Clark’s family wasn’t the only source of comfort during her treatment. The staff at Marysville Middle School threw a hat and scarf party for her and arranged meals to be brought to her house each day of the week, and her students made a point to help her through it. “My students were so wonderful,” she said. “I had posters all over my room. They would write me notes and letters. It made a big difference.” It was clear that her family and co-workers were doing

Firefighters ‘Care Enough to Wear Pink’ Their fire engines will remain the same colors, but the firefighters of Marysville and Arlington will be wearing pink with their uniforms throughout the month of October in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While members of the Marysville Fire District are set to don their pink T-shirts from Oct. 18-20, members of the Arlington Fire Department already wore their pink T-shirts on

Oct. 3, and will do so again on Oct. 11, 15, 23, 24 and 30. The International Association of Fire Fighters and the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters have each encouraged all their members to participate in the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” campaign, to help raise funds and awareness for all women who are battling cancer. The two groups are urging firefight-

ers to join together and help lead the way in portraying an image of hope, strength and courage to those women who worry about being alone in their battle for life. “Cancer affects all of us on some level or another,” said Jason Schoonover, captain and president Marysville Fire Local 3219. “This is another way for us to reach out and support those affected.”

“Our firefighters came to us because they wanted to be on board with this,” said Kristin Banfield, assistant city administrator for Arlington, who noted that it’s been at least three years since Arlington firefighters first showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donning pink T-shirts. “As part of the calls they go out on, they’ve seen people being treated for cancer, so they know the value of early detection.”

Things you should know about breast cancer


‘Pink Editions’ support breast cancer awareness


ctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to help raise awareness in our communities we have put together these special “Pink Editions” of The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times. Breast cancer has impacted almost everyone, either directly or indirectly. Most of us have a family member, friend or coworker, or know someone in the community who has battled this disease. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed among women nationwide in 2011. Locally, according to the Snohomish Health District, 582 cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in Snohomish County in 2007. These are not just statistics, they are members of our community. Our hope is that by partnering with our communities we can help raise awareness about this disease that impacts so many.

In this week’s issues of The Arlington Times and The Marysville Globe, we’ve shared some stories of some local women and their fights against this disease, provided information about some of the services and resources available in our communities, and included a variety

very week, 100 Western Washington women are diagnosed with breast cancer, which continues to be the second most frequently diagnosed cancer among women in the U.S., after skin cancer. We don’t yet know the exact causes of breast cancer, and many myths about breast cancer continue to exist. But probably the best way to prevent and survive a breast cancer diagnosis is to be informed. All women are at risk for breast cancer. Although this disease is more common in women over the age of 40, younger women can and do get breast cancer as well. To reduce risk, here are some things you should know. ■ If you are over 40 years old, have a mammogram. The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and Susan G. Komen all agree that women age 40 and older should have mammograms every 1 to 2 years. Early detection is the key to survival. The five-year relative survival rate for breast cancer, when caught early, is 99 percent. When detected at the

latest stage, the survival rate drops to 23 percent. ■ Know what is normal for you. See your health provider right away if you notice a lump, swelling, changes in breast size or a new pain in one spot that does not go away. ■ Live a healthy lifestyle. Maintain a healthy weight. Add exercise to your routine. Limit your use of alcohol. Breastfeed, if you can. And, since we live in the Northwest, current studies point to maintaining a normal level of vitamin D as helpful. However, if you fear that you might be at greater risk for breast cancer because your mother or grandmother had the disease, you should know that most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease. Only five to 10 percent of breast cancers are due to inherited genetic mutations. Other common misperceptions about breast cancer risk include underwire bras, abortion, plastics, deodorant use, breast implants, fertility drugs, hair dyes and trauma to the breast.

GUEST OPINION ELISA DEL ROSARIO One more thing. If you fear a breast cancer diagnosis is a death sentence, let me tell you that is also not the case. Today, there are nearly 3 million breast cancer survivors living in the US. And I am one of them. If you have ever seen our Race for the Cure Survivor’s Parade, you would see many survivors living happy and full lives 30 years after their diagnosis or longer. Above all, the best advice I can give is to ask you to take an active role in your own breast health. And if you are over 40 years old, and have yet to be been screened for breast cancer, do it today. There is no time to lose. Elisa Del Rosario is the Director of Grants, Education and Advocacy at Komen Puget Sound.

Komen funds local research


ou may be well aware of vitamin D’s part in building better bones, but did you know it might also help in prevention of breast cancer? Unfortunately, many of us in the Northwest are not getting enough vitamin D. Overweight individuals are at increased risk of low vitamin D levels, possibly because excess fat absorbs and holds onto vitamin D, making it unavailable to the body. With funding from Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, Anne McTiernan, M.D, Ph.D., of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, has embarked on an important new study investigating vitamin D insufficiency and weight, two interrelated risk factors for breast cancer. Many studies have shown that being overweight can result in an increase in risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. Vitamin D may reduce production of fat tissue, which would result in lowering breast cancer risk factors related to obesity. Vitamin D by itself has also been associated with a reduction in the creation of cancer in laboratory experiments. Dr. McTiernan’s study enrolled 218 women in a year-long, nutrition and exercise based weight loss program. Participants met

regularly with a study nutritionist to learn strategies for healthy eating and weight loss, and also worked closely with a specialist to develop and maintain a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise program. Enrollees were randomly assigned to receive a daily dose of vitamin D or a placebo pill with no active ingredient. “To our knowledge, there are no prior studies on the effect of vitamin D and weight on breast cancer prevention, and the proposed study is therefore highly novel,” said Dr. McTiernan. “If positive results follow, it can translate into clinical and public health practice, and may provide women and physicians with additional options for reducing risk for breast cancer.” Dr. McTiernan’s research is just one example of Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s global medical research funds being invested right here in the Puget Sound region, with a focus on breast cancer prevention and early detection. Susan G. Komen is the largest non-government funder of breast cancer research in the world. Komen has invested over $2 billion into research and community health in its 30 years, providing $58 million in new research funding for 2012 alone.

GUEST OPINION CHANDINI PORTTEUS Funding scientific research into a cure for breast cancer is an important way Komen Puget Sound invests the money it receives through donations. Twenty-five percent of net funds raised is pooled and distributed through Komen National Breast Cancer Research and Training Grants. The other 75 percent supports early detection, mammogram screenings and treatment support for low income and underserved women throughout Western Washington. “Finding ways to prevent breast cancer is a major goal of Komen’s research program. We invest in research like this to help women get the best answers, based on good science, on ways they can reduce their risk of breast cancer or avoid it all together.” Chandini Portteus is the VP, Research, Evaluation and Scientific Programs at Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Transportation improvements nearing completion


he city of Marysville is in the final stretch of successfully completing key road improvements this fall. These investments in Marysville’s transportation infrastructure improve safety, ease traffic congestion, support economic opportunity and local businesses, provide jobs, and perhaps most importantly to you, make your daily drive more convenient. From concept, design and engineering to actual construction, the road to completion for projects such as these can span many years longer than most of us would like to believe, with some projects on the drafting board for more than a decade. Likewise, tough economic times can limit access to state and federal grants that help leverage our own local transportation funds, further delaying the time that it takes to get these projects built. Fortunately, Marysville benefits from a solid team of elected officials, planners and engineers skillful at securing grants, funding partners, multiple partner agencies and involved citizens who pull together to move forward on identifying vital transportation needs. These groups know the value of a robust transportation system and what it brings to a growing, competitive community. Here is a look at some key road projects in Marysville to be completed in the weeks and months ahead. 156th Street I-5 Overcrossing The Lakewood Triangle Access/156th Street I-5 overcrossing project is scheduled to open in November. The overpass, funded through a public-private partnership, will connect Twin Lakes Boulevard and Lakewood with Smokey Point Boulevard and the future manufacturing and industrial jobs center property east of I-5. The overcrossing is key to economic vitality, and will serve as a catalyst for future commercial, light industrial and residential growth in Marysville’s north end. Additionally, it will take pressure off the busy 172nd Street/I-5 interchange a mile north during peak traffic times. As an example of how long road projects like these can take, the city plans to build freeway on and off ramps for the 156th overcrossing that were included in the original design, but the federal DOT interchange justification report required as part of the project and all the planning that follows could take as long as five years. 51st Street extension to connect 84th to 88th The 51st Street extension project connecting 84th with 88th street to create an uninterrupted north-south route of travel through Marysville has been on the city’s wish list for more than two decades. I am happy to report that through in-house design and engineering and pooling available road funds, the road


will open by the end of October. Construction of this three-lane extension of 51st near Pinewood Elementary adds school zone improvements that include a bus lane, two bike lanes, curb, gutter and sidewalks. Installation of a traffic signal at 88th and 51st will put the final touch on this project. City engineers expect that the new continuous route will reduce congestion on State Avenue to the west, and 67th and other roads to the east. SR 529 Ebey Slough Bridge The state Department of Transportation’s new SR 529 Ebey Slough Bridge is scheduled to open to both directions of traffic in winter 2013, WSDOT officials say, with construction wrapping up in spring. The bridge is on the primary commuter route for drivers traveling between Marysville and Everett. Some 17,000 motorists use this stretch of SR 529 each day, and it is a main route for sailors and their families going to and from Naval Station Everett. The new fixed-span bridge will do away with congestion caused by bridge openings. With four lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks, the new bridge will increase safety for bicyclists, pedestrians and drivers. From an aesthetic standpoint, the bridge will be a familiar and visible gateway fixture of Ebey waterfront and our cityscape for years and decades to come as we seek to revitalize downtown and spur economic development. SR 9/SR92 break in access Construction crews on this widening and intersection improvement project are completing minor striping and cleanup work this month at the SR9/SR92 intersection in the southeast Marysville area. This project, designed to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow, added more lanes, turn pockets and a new traffic signal. Marysville is partnering with WSDOT to add a fourth westbound leg and access point to the intersection, ultimately creating a new 40th Street corridor in the Sunnyside-Whiskey Ridge area as regional growth occurs. Transportation touches nearly every aspect of life. These public investments go a long way to add to a safer, more efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and a more livable community for our citizens. Plus, these projects keep us moving forward and put people to work during difficult economic times.

Time, teaching and teamwork

love the fall — especially the one we are having this year. And I love football … the HuskiesStanford game on Sept. 27th was not to be missed. The teamwork, split second handoffs, and do whatever it takes attitude, contributed to the win. The Huskies were not predicted to win against Stanford — but they did ... with time, teaching and teamwork. In schools these same three elements — time, teaching, and teamwork — are critical to the success of our teachers and students. And our game plan now includes the new national Common Core Standards that are more rigorous than previous state standards. In football, the team works hard to make every play successful; in education teachers work hard to help every student be successful. Teachers need time and teamwork to share teaching practices that help every student meet these new more rigorous standards. Our new teacher evaluation system also supports the new standards — and includes teacher collaboration as part of the evaluation. Teams are critical. Teachers look at data frequently to see if students are making progress — not waiting until the end of the year. Teams also insure that every student has access to the same learning opportunities and curriculum.

GUEST OPINION GAIL MILLER Creating time for teacher teams to work together has always been a challenge. During the day, teachers are working with students. Before and after school, they prepare lessons, communicate with parents, and grade papers. To ensure that teachers have time to work with colleagues on helping all students be successful, we have made several changes to the school calendar: Consistent early releases — nearly every Friday — and nearly all two hour early releases. This provides families more consistency in their schedules and, based on feedback from parents, Fridays work better for most families than Wednesdays as we had last year. Fewer Furlough days than last year — three longer four-hour early releases to make up for teacher pay cuts at the state level. One of those days — October 12th — gives us the opportunity to provide a district wide day of learning. Many teachers will give up their furlough day to


learn from colleagues who will share their expertise in teaching. Same instructional time as last year: We still provide the same 1,000 hours of instruction that we always have. We have moved the time around but still keep the focus on instruction and learning. Collaboration time. Time for teachers to work together on student learning is more important than ever. Those early release days that parents see on the calendar provide time for staff to work together to improve student learning and become knowledgeable about the new common core state standards. Our mission remains that every student be proficient in literacy and math, graduate on time, and be prepared for success in college, career, and responsible citizenship. To accomplish our mission — to win the game even when that may be as challenging as the Huskies game against Stanford — we need time, teacher expertise and teamwork. Football is about entertainment. School is about a more successful future for our kids. We can do this — with each other. Gail Miller is the Assistant Superintendent and can be contacted at or by calling 360-653-0818.

Technology news from Arlington Public Schools


n Arlington Public Schools we dedicate a portion of the maintenance and operations levy to support technology in our schools. Have you ever wondered how it is being used to support your student? There are some exciting new tools that our Technology Department is implementing to help both teachers and students. Back in 2000, Jim Bassett pioneered the development of the Basmati Academic Progress Software as a way for students and parents to monitor grades online. Last year we moved our online gradebook to the Family Access system to integrate it with our other student information. Yet there were still some missing pieces to allow educators to effectively study student performance. We needed a way for educators to look at assessments, track what’s working and help us identify students who need additional help. Our new Homeroom system is a data dashboard. Just like your car’s dashboard, it give’s educators one place to look and get current information on student assessment data. This software allows teachers to take data from state tests and assessments given during the school year, organize it and visualize it. Our teachers and administrators are using this software to closely follow our students, import our own teacher-developed tests and plan for interventions to help our students succeed. In the past, this might have taken us many hours to put together using spreadsheets. Now we can drill down and get this data in minutes.

GUEST OPINION MARK EHRHARDT This year we are also implementing a “single sign on” system that will help teachers work more efficiently by logging in once rather than multiple times to access their online tools. Now they won’t have to keep track of 10 different passwords and logins to do their job. Inside of this system teachers can connect to our curriculum website. Here teachers have outlined what is being taught in each subject area, when it is taught and how it is going to assessed. Teachers will also have access to all of the digital materials they have identified as the best materials to support those goals. After we identify a student’s needs, how do we respond? When we have students at the secondary level who are behind on credits or need other credits, we enroll them in classes using online courseware. Some of these courses were developed by teachers in our school district and others were purchased from an outside vendor. In both situations we identify the areas that a student already has learned, and then the areas in which they need to improve. Many of these students are catching up on their credits by working in our labs during the school day. Students who can show

that they have mastered the material are moved on to other areas of the course. Another significant new initiative is the use of iPad tablets at the elementary level. Last year we piloted the use of iPads in many of our special education classrooms. What we saw was a significant impact on student motivation and the ability for teachers to individualize learning for children. The power of this technology really shines when we put it in children’s hands. Students are asking to come in early to school or giving up their recess so that they can work on their math and reading skills on the iPads. After that pilot we chose to use federal grant funds to expand this project across our elementary schools. This week we are delivering the iPads to elementary schools across the district. Our teachers are working together to identify the apps that target skills students need in math, reading and language arts. When a student goes to work on an iPad, teachers will have a clear idea of what they need to know, what the best app is for helping them, and whether they have learned it. These are just a few of the exciting initiatives that leverage technology to ensure that every student is successful. We try to efficiently use the levy funds to help all of the staff at Arlington Public Schools to focus on our most important goal — Improving Student Learning.

Local agencies provide diagnostic services, treatment

As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month returns this October, various health agencies throughout North Snohomish County are reminding women of their diagnosis and treatment options, to help them identify and respond to cases of breast cancer in time to save lives. Sea Mar Community Health Center of Marysville Jasmine Potter, the nursing supervisor at Sea Mar in Marysville, explained that Sea Mar’s main role lies in screening for cancer. She touted this role as especially important since Sea Mar serves a number of clients for whom English is a second language or insurance coverage is not an option. “A mobile mammography unit comes here every month to every other month,” Potter said. “If our screenings yield suspicious findings, we refer them on to other providers. We partner with so many other agencies that we’re often able to get those services greatly reduced or at no cost to our clients.” Sea Mar takes into account factors such as age, low income levels and family histories of cancers to try and provide access to as many cli-

ents as possible. The Breast, Cervical & Colon Health Program of Washington state is one of their partners in this endeavor. “If our clients are eligible, we can even get their mammographies paid for,” said Potter, who also touted Sea Mar’s work with Familias Unidas to provide counseling, advocacy and information services to clients regardless of culture or ethnicity. “We can do a certain amount of lab work in house, but a lot of our work is on the phone, scheduling appointments and followups with folks who might not be

comfortable speaking in English.” Sea Mar’s customer service likewise includes assistance in applying for insurance and filling out forms for the state Department of Social and Health Services. The Sea Mar Community Health Center of Marysville is located at 9710 State Ave. and can be called at 360-6531742. For more information, log onto Everett Clinic at Smokey Point Liz DeGraw works in the mammography department

at the Everett Clinic’s new Smokey Point branch, which provides screening and mammography services, but not diagnostic. “Once patients know they have a problem, we usually refer them over to Providence,” DeGraw said. “We use our resources to detect the possibility of anything unusual, but Providence provides a better look. They’re the problemsolvers, but we’ll detect if the problem exists.” DeGraw expressed pride in the Smokey Point Everett

ing until 50 to have mammograms done every two years until you’re 74, although they do say you can start as early as 40 if you discuss the risks with a doctor,” DeGraw said. “It’s up to the patient to talk with their primary care providers, although most insurance will cover yearly mammograms.” According to DeGraw, the Smokey Point Everett Clinic occasionally conducts breast MRIs, but refers breast ultrasounds to Providence.

Clinic’s modern mammography machines, whose stateof-the-art digital displays offer high-resolution detail, as well as the seven mammographers on staff. She acknowledged that there’s currently a difference of opinion between the American Cancer Society and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force on the frequency with which mammographies should be conducted. “The ACS recommends starting yearly mammograms at the age of 40 and continuing them as long as you’re healthy, while the USPSTF recommends wait-

ing over the course of the past two decades with dramatically reducing deaths due to breast cancer. “The technology is so superior that we can find it before you even feel it,” DeGraw said. “You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that we’re detecting it at its earliest stages.” The Everett Clinic at Smokey Point is located at 2901 174th St. NE and can be called at 360-454-1900. For more information, log onto Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington Staff members of Cascade Valley Hospital expressed pride in their broad scope of screening and diagnostic services, including not only standard mammograms and breast ultrasounds, but also galactograms and biopsies. “Some days we’re able to schedule biopsies on the same day,” said Jacqueline Johnson, imaging director for Cascade Valley Hospital, who also noted the hospital’s radiology services and its six mammography technicians, including herself. “We’re usually able to get them in within the week.” Like DeGraw, Johnson described her technology as top-notch and complimented her coworkers for providing a personalized, almost familial feel to their services, which in the case of Cascade Valley

Hospital includes Wednesday night mammograms, every half-hour from 5-7:30 p.m. throughout the month of October. These weekly events during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month have even included 15-minute massage sessions from the Denton Massage School of Arlington, as well as special surprise gifts for the final patients of each evening. “They get light tea and treats like pink lip balm,” said Catherine Russell, community relations director for Cascade Valley Hospital. “We have patients who schedule their annual mammograms for October each year just for those Wednesday nights.” Johnson added that patients could benefit from another upgrade in services soon, since the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation has committed to purchasing a fluoroscopy chair, which hospital staff plan to use for mammograms, galactograms and biopsies for those who have difficulty standing unassisted or tire easily. Not only did Johnson and Russell echo DeGraw’s advocacy for early detection, but Cascade Valley Hospital radiology technician Donna Marler reminded men that they make up 10 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses. “Just because you don’t have a family history of breast cancer, it doesn’t mean you’re safe, since 80 percent of all women diagnosed with breast

cancer have no family history of it,” Marler said. “You don’t need a doctor’s referral to schedule an appointment.” “Anybody can be referred to us, whether or not they’re a patient at one of our clinics,” Russell said. Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington is located at 330 S. Stillaguamish Ave. and can be called at 360-435-2133, or 360-435-0515 to schedule an appointment. For more information, log onto www. Cascade Skagit Health Alliance in Arlington Cascade Valley Hospital and the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance in Arlington each offer their own MRI, but the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance also serves as the site for the Skagit Valley Hospital Regional Cancer Care Center. “We can do chemo, lab draws, MRIs and X-rays,” said Linda Harrison, unit assistant for the Skagit Valley Hospital Regional Cancer Care Center at the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance. “For radiation and PET scans, we usually send people to Mount Vernon, but we’re all connected to the same doctors here.” Harrison explained that the services currently housed under one roof at the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance were previously provided at two separate locations, in Arlington and Smokey Point, but emphasized that the staff of the Skagit Valley Hospital Regional Cancer Care Center in Arlington has developed a familiarity with their clients. “We know just about all the names of our patients and what they need as soon as they walk in the door,” Harrison said. “At bigger facilities, you don’t get that. You’re just a number at those places.” “These nurses are like family,” said Tiffany Cross, who started her treatments

at the Skagit Valley Hospital three and a half years ago before moving over to the Regional Cancer Care Center at the Cascade Skagit Health Alliance. “When I came here, I already knew all the same nurses. Nothing goes unseen. Nothing gets written off.” Harrison noted that onsite pharmacists such as Hau Dong mix the chemotherapy drugs just down the hall from where the patients receive their treatments. “We’re even able to do biopsies right in the rooms,” said Veronica Tinoco, one of the nurses at the Regional Cancer Care Center in Arlington. The Cascade Skagit Health Alliance in Arlington is located at 3823 172nd St. NE and can be called at 360-6185000. For more information, log onto Providence Comprehensive Breast Center of Everett “We’re committed to providing care whether people can pay for it or not,” said Gayle Jago, manager of the Providence Comprehensive Breast Center. “Providence has the latest technology and surgical capabilities. Our MRIs and nuclear medicine are right up there with the big names, so that patients in this region don’t have to go to Seattle to get the care they need. We respect where our patients want to go.” Jago touted Providence’s stereotactic surgery, which employs three-dimensional mapping to make surgical intervention minimally invasive, and characterized Providence’s dedicated nurse practitioners as rigorous in their risk assessments, which she cited as especially important to women in Washington state. “Washington has the fifth highest level of breast cancer of any state in the country, and Snohomish and King counties are higher than the

state average,” Jago said. “One in eight women overall will develop breast cancer during their lifetimes. We all know someone who’s been touched by breast cancer.” Providence schedules frequent screenings, mammograms, diagnostic and “coordinated journeys” according to Jago, who added that Providence also supports events such as the Everett Silvertips Hockey Club’s “Pink the Rink” on Saturday, Oct. 27, to try and reinvest in the community and those in need. “It costs $150 to get a screening and a mammogram,” Jago said. “That seems like such an absurd thing that should stand between you and your life. Don’t let your inability to pay prevent you from obtaining that care. It doesn’t matter if you’re insured or not. We’ll work with you.” The Providence Comprehensive Breast Center of Everett is located at 900 Pacific Ave. and can be called at 425-261-2000.

with breast cancer every year, she warned that, when cancer does occur, it is often aggressive. Last year, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest’s doctors and nurses provided more than 15,440 breast exams to young women. If a Planned Parenthood provider finds an abnormality during an exam, the patient is referred to a breast specialist for further examination, which may include diagnostic tests, such as an ultrasound or biopsy. Planned Parenthood health care professionals also inform young women of factors that can reduce their breast cancer risk, among them getting regular exercise and limiting their alcohol intake. Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest’s recently established diagnostic grant program helps to cover the costs of these tests for patients when possible, since the tests can be costly, especially for uninsured and low-income women. McIntyre cited studies showing that Hispanic Americans tend not to get screened for common cancers, such as breast cancer, as regularly as non-Hispanic whites, and added that Hispanic women are 20 percent more likely to die from breast cancer when compared to non-Hispanic white women diagnosed at similar ages and stages.

“Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Latinas, and improving health outcomes starts with educating women and their families about the risk of ignoring potential problems,” McIntyre said. “Latinas are sometimes reluctant to seek care due to a language barrier or lack of insurance. Planned Parenthood educators are speaking with Latinas in their communities about the importance of screening and connecting women to health care services, helping them take control of their health.” To schedule an appointment at the Marysville or Everett Planned Parenthood health centers, call 1-800230-7526 (PLAN) or log onto

Shawn Smith, Marysville Land Use Engineering Services Manager enough to get selected.” Smith acknowledged that attendance at previous open houses devoted to Brownfields grants for the Geddes Marina property have been met by dwindling attendance from the citizenry, but he urged them to turn out for this meeting for the same reason that the city continues to apply for those grants. “Our waterfront is an important part of the city’s downtown revitalization,” Smith said. “Right now, that marina is a run-down eyesore, but we’re looking to get shops and condos there, as well as a walking path to tie the boat launch park to the Qwuloolt estuary.” Long-term cleanup at the marina at 1326 First St., just west of Ebey Waterfront Park, would include both

structural and environmental work. The EPA awarded the city with a Brownfields grant in May of 2009 to clean up the Crown Pacific/Interfor mill site at 60 State Ave. on the waterfront just east of State Avenue. Brownfields grants are designed to help revitalize former industrial sites, turning them from problem properties to productive community use. As Smith noted, long-term plans as identified in the city’s 2009 Downtown Master Plan would see the Ebey waterfront redeveloped with trails, apartments or condominiums, as well as some commercial development. For more information about the grant application, contact Smith at 360-3638224.

The property contains some types of chemicals and pollutants typical of the timber industry and marine operations that have existed along the waterfront since the late 1800s. Smith explained that the city had previously applied for two other $200,000 EPA Brownfields cleanup grants, as well as a $550,000 EPA Brownfields multi-purpose pilot grant, that also would have been put toward the assessment and remediation of contaminated soils on the site. “We’re basically at the same place we were before this summer,” Smith said. “We found out this summer that our most recent grant application was unsuccessful.

Kudos to Marysville fans


he recent football game between Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell was special — and historic. For the first time in 37 years we had a crosstown rivalry game here in Marysville. (Pilchuck High School was combined with Marysville High School in the mid 1970s; the Pilchuck mascot and colors are reclaimed in the Marysville Getchell green and gold “Chargers.”) This new rivalry, dubbed the “Berry Bowl,” will be commemorated with a travelling football trophy … in a strawberry flat. From the start our goal has been “Two Campuses, One Community.” Whenever we compete we want to bring our community together. The game on Friday, Sept. 28, our very own version of “Friday Night Lights,” was special. Mayor John Nehring was there to flip a commemorative coin prior to game. The crowd, the students, the teams were great. M-P — the home team this year — held their annual Oktoberfest providing good food and friendship for the huge crowd that came out to participate. The players and coaches from both teams were focused, gave their best efforts and displayed incredibly good sportsmanship. Players from both teams repeatedly helped each other off the turf with an “Atta boy tap” on the shoulder pad or helmet. No shock there; that is how they are coached. It all added up to a great evening. Nearly 5,000 spectators in Quil Ceda Stadium enjoyed the spot-on marching band and the combined cheer squads. The cheer staff from both schools performed a cheer together, setting a positive tone for the evening. The student bodies were positive throughout the game without a single boo. This was Marysville Getchell’s year to be the “visitors.” MG students sat in the visitor bleachers. MG adults sat mostly on the visitor side, but many were mixed in with the M-P crowd, smiling, laughing, and cheering. It was truly a festive and positive atmosphere. After the game the players high-fived and gave each other hugs as they met in the middle of the field. The crowd stuck around for the longest time socializing and enjoying a wonderful night under the moonlit skies of Marysville. Marysville, a city committed to building a healthy community and good schools, has a list of great opportunities and events to offer its citizens. You can add the newly named “Berry Bowl” to that list. Kudos to those that attended the game, you were great. Sincerely, Greg Erickson, Athletic Director Marysville School District

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell swim teams competed against Everett High School at the Forest Park Pool in Everett on Oct. 2, a contest that ended with several district and state qualifying times. Marysville-Pilchuck won the meet against Everett with a 102-67 victory, while Everett topped Marysville Getchell 107-55. “Hannah Taylor left with a state qualifying time in the 200-meter relay,” said Jaci LeGore Hodgins, head coach of both teams. “That was really something because there was no diving off at this meet, and she finished with a 2:00.47.” Taylor also qualified for state in the 100-meter breast stroke with a final time of 1:10.53. M-P also won the 200-

meter medley relay with a time of 2:11.85. The relay team included Melody Coleman, Hannah Taylor, Rebekah Pusateri and Ashlee Richmond. Coleman won the 50-meter freestyle with a 28.33 and Rebekah Pusateri won the 100-meter butterfly with a final time of 1:24.39. “That was really a big deal because she hadn’t done that race before,” said LeGore Hodgins of Pusateri, who also won the 100-meter backstroke with a final time of 1:16.90. The 200-meter freestyle relay was won by M-P swimmers Lydia Strough, Elana Wharton, Serena Corbett and Coleman. The 400-meter relay was also a winning event for M-P, as Coleman, Richmond, Pusateri and Taylor finished with a final time of 4:14.67. “Getchell has yet to win a meet,” said LeGore Hodgins. “That is simply due to a lack of womanpower. In this situ-

ation [at Everett], there was no diving, which was tough because MG has such great divers.” MG swim team captain Courtney Moss is one of the divers who have found success in the 2012 season, having qualified for the 3A 11-dive state championships after breaking her own diving score on both skill and degree of difficulty. Another MG diver who is finding success this season is Roma Cancio, who has scored consistently high in the first half of this season. For the Everett meet, several MG swimmers still emerged victorious over the Seagulls. Lia Mullen-Gaffney won the 100-meter butterfly with a final time of 1:18.58, a district qualifying time. “Again, to do that in this pool is a big deal,” said Hodgins. Mullen-Gaffney competed in the following event, the 100-meter freestyle, and won that event as well

The next meet for the Chargers and Tomahawks swimmers is set for the Marysville-Pilchuck pool against the Stanwood Spartans on Oct. 11 at 2:45 p.m.

High school bowlers begin season BY LAUREN SALCEDO

MARYSVILLE — The local high school bowling league is in full swing, as tryouts for several local teams took place in the two weeks between Sept. 14 to Sept. 28, including for the former state championship contender, the Penguins team from Marysville Arts and Technology High School. “We’ve got a lot of new talent coming in,” said Christine Mair, Arts and Tech PTSA president and mother of bowler Chance Mair. Chance Mair and Baylie Self are returning players from last year’s successful team, and Self has been promoting the team since the first day of school. “It’s been kind of hectic. There’s a lot of people and it’s different than last year,” said Self. “I’m going to try to coach people and help them out when they need it.” The Penguins saw 10 new bowlers during the try-outs and now have three teams for one school. Natialene Schopf and Gary Schopf are coaches for the Arts and Tech team. “This is our fourth year coaching the Arts and Tech team, and we coached on the weekends before that,” said Natialene Schopf. “Our daughter Brittney started bowling as a freshman at M-P. Brittney mentioned that she wanted to bowl for school but there wasn’t a team. So we asked around to some of the parents of weekend bowlers and found that there were enough interested bodies from Arts and Tech to make their own team.”

One of the newcomers this year includes Kylee Heath, a freshman at Arts and Tech, who has been bowling since she was 5 years old. “I compete in spring and summer leagues at Evergreen Lanes,” said Heath. “I wanted to join the team because I love bowling and I’ve been doing it for so long.” Kylee’s mother Colleen Heath is proud of her daughter for trying out for the high school league. “She started with her cousin when she was 5 years old and she liked it,” said Heath. “She wanted to stick with it and she’s good. She bowls at least one day a week.” In the years since the Arts and Tech bowling program began, it has grown to include three teams. MarysvillePilchuck and Marysville Getchell have a joint team that includes players from Tulalip Heritage and other district programs. Cara Althoff is a first-year coach of the Marysville joint team, and her son Matt has been on the team for three years. “Mike [Endleton] and others tried really hard to get more people involved in the team,” said Althoff, of previous coach Mike Endleton. “In the beginning they had to work really hard to keep people but it looks like it’s started to grow.” One of the bowlers returning to the Marysville team this year is Bryson Parker, a senior who ranked in the top 10 in the state last year. The president of the high school

Kylee Heath, freshman at Marysville Arts and Technology, made the Penguins’ bowling team and practices during their tryouts on Sept. 27. bowling league, Cindee Dowell, has been coaching Lakewood High School’s bowling team for three years, with more than a decade of coaching experience prior to that. “Bowling gives these kids a sense of confidence and self-respect,” said Dowell. “We had a few bowlers who were first-time bowlers last year and started out with a 58 and ended with a 158 average. Watching them improve and improve their self-esteem is great.” Marysville and Lakewood students who are interested in joining a school bowling team can contact their school’s athletic department.

Silvertips ‘Pink the Rink’ in support of breast cancer awareness BY LAUREN SALCEDO

gave us a focus on what we need to do and how many people we can help.” Most of the funds raised during “Pink the Rink” come from donations by those who attend. “It’s a little bit of everything,” said Huntington. “Most donations come from ticket sales, and every players’ pink jersey is auctioned off, along with “Pink the Rink” hockey sticks signed by the team, so that’s more funds raised. And of course, we have huge corporate sponsors who donate large amounts of money to the event.” Last year, Safeway donated $50,000 to “Pink the Rink.” “They are stepping up again this year, but we want to total donation to be a surprise,” said Rajcic. “We are so grateful to have them as a

corporate sponsor.” The Safeway Foundation partnered with other local businesses to raise awareness of the event, including Sound Harley in Smokey Point. “We are going to sell pink pom-poms for $2 each and all the money will go straight to Providence,” said Kari Korsgren, marketing manager for Sound Harley. “We’ve worked with Safeway for the last two years to benefit prostate cancer, so this is our first year doing ‘Pink the Rink.’ It’s another way to help support the community.” Sound Harley customers have the opportunity to use

their smart phone to scan a special barcode to donate $4 of their ticket cost directly to Providence. The shop has also been promoting the event on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. “A lot of our customers have dealt with breast cancer before,” said Korsgren. “We are just trying to stir up new areas where they can get support.” The money raised at the event goes to the Providence General Foundation and is earmarked specifically for providing free mammograms to women in the area. The result of the Silvertips’

fundraising efforts has had a real-life individual impact in the lives of women in Snohomish County. “We’ve always worked directly with the hospital to keep the funds local,” said Huntington. “There have been a couple of cases where medical conditions were discovered during screenings that were paid for through ‘Pink the Rink.’ They may not have had those screenings otherwise.” For more information on ‘Pink the Rink’ or to purchase tickets to the game visit the website at


EVERETT — It’s not every day that you see grown male athletes dressed in head-totoe pink uniforms, but for the Everett Silvertips it’s par for the course during their annual “Pink the Rink” hockey game, which raises money for Providence Regional Medical Center’s Comprehensive Breast Center. The fourth annual “Pink the Rink” night is set for Saturday, Oct. 27, at Comcast Arena, where the Silvertips will face their rivals, the Seattle Thunderbirds. “This will be our fourth year, and it’s been just explosive growth since we started,” said Travis Huntington, director of public relations

for the Silvertips. “Our three year total is $130,000, but last year alone we raised more than $80,000.” “Pink the Rink” began as a way to host one large fundraising event to benefit a local cause. “As a team, we are always asked to support small fundraising efforts, but there were so many that we felt it would be more efficient to host one huge event and raise as much money as we could,” said Zoran Rajcic, Silvertips executive vice president. “The wife of one of our assistant coaches works at the Comprehensive Breast Center, and she told us about what they do and how many women they help, and it just kind of rolled from there.

Health Fair returns to Stillaguamish Senior Center

SMOKEY POINT — The Stillaguamish Senior Center’s third annual Health and Social Services Fair presented Zumba, blood pressure and diabetic foot checks,

informational displays and the Department of Social and Health Services’ Mobile Community Services Office, as well as the music of Dick Foley of “The Brothers Four,� on Wednesday, Sept. 26. Dr. David Gran, an obste-

trician gynecologist with the Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics, was available to speak with women about their health issues, including the importance of gynecological exams, especially as women age and are increas-

ingly likely to experience urinary and incontinence problems. “Men aren’t as likely to experience those stresses because they don’t give birth,� said Gran, who noted that programs of hormone replacements have yielded success in rejuvenating those tissues.

While Aletha Watson and Dorothy Davis demonstrated how even seat-bound elderly people can move along to “Zumba Gold with Alee,� Arlington’s Dian Specht had her feet checked and measured by certified therapeutic shoe fitter Mary Williams of Priority Footwear. “I came here last year for

Janice M. (Larson) Howell, 77, a longtime Mt. Vernon resident, passed away at her home Sunday, September 30th, 2012, surrounded by her family. Janice was born on December 29, 1934, in Everett, Washington to Carsten and Margaret Larson. She was raised in Silvana, Washington and graduated from Arlington High School in 1953. On June 9, 1956, she was united in marriage to Howard Howell. Together they had three children, Wesley, Carolyn, and Cheryl. Janice was active in her church and served as the secretary of Salem Lutheran Church in Mt. Vernon for over 20 years and sang in the church choir. She loved her family; family was always the heart

my flu shot and bone density check,� said Specht, who had been unaware that Medicare can cover orthopedic shoes for diabetic reasons. Williams credited diabetic foot checks and orthopedic shoe fittings with helping to level out the rate of foot amputations due to diabetes, even though diabetics is “skyrocketing� in her estimation. “Nobody can afford a $300 pair of orthopedic shoes on their own on a fixed income,� Williams said. Shirley Vanderbilt, a care consultant with the Western and Central Washington chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, let Health Fair attendees know about her group’s three-part series on “Living with Alzheimer’s: Middle Stage for Caregivers,� from 1-3 p.m. on Oct. 9, 16 and 23. “There’s a misconception that people with Alzheimer’s are stubborn,� Vanderbilt said. “It’s their brains’ inability to learn certain things. They’re losing certain skills that they used to have.� Foley used his audience’s nostalgic fondness for his songs to impart the message that “it’s never too late to begin to eat well and change.� Foley has become an advocate of fresh fruits and vegetables who believes “we’ve become disconnected from real food, in favor of food-like substances. We need to rediscover real food and get back to nature, or it’s going to do us in.�

Find some sweet deals...

I have snowy white fur & multicolored eyes. People here think I am unique & sweet. I am learning to be a house cat as I am what is called a semi-feral kitten. I've been in the EAS foster program & getting used to people. I am very food motivated, but still a little frightened by the different sounds in a house. To get me over this last hurdle I need to be kept in a small, safe area in my home until I will get used to the sounds before I'm allowed to explore. To help me transition into my new home please handle me often. I may crouch when reached for but I do love to be touched & soon I'll be playing.

Regalo came to the shelter because he needs new owners who are willing & dedicated to him. He is shy & timid, needs owners who will work on socializing him & make him happy. He is great w/other small dogs & previously lived with a small dog. He doesn't like cats. He's never lived children or experienced them. Keep in mind that SOME small dogs don't like children. He's crate trained, so consider crate training him when you first bring him home & until he gets used to being in your home.

A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method.

While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects.

Here’s What Our Patients Say……

Marysville Free Methodist Church “Family Oriented — Bible Centered”

“I had endured severe foot pain from neuropathy for several years. It seriously interfered with my sleep, resulting in retirement several years before I had intended to end my career. I sought help from several medical professionals who told me that there was nothing that could be done to alleviate the pain other than to take strong medicines. My wife found an ad for Dr. Peseau and I went in, was evaluated, and Dr. Peseau explained the cause of my foot pain and recommended a treatment plan. After my 4th treatment, my foot pain started to go away! After a month, I experienced no more neuropathic foot pain! I am now sleeping well every night and am living an active life again. The Arlington Spine Center has unique equipment and the doctors have specialized training to help neuropathy patients.
