VOL. 38, NO. 43

A survivor’s story -There is life after cancer By Charlotte Berger Fourteen years of my life have passed since I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 12, 2003, when I lived in Florida. Life is like a vapor in the wind. Where does time go? In March 2003, I had my annual mammogram and thought everything was fine. I went about my life as normal until November 8, 2003 when I discovered a small lump in my left breast. All kinds of thoughts went through my mind and I prayed to God that it was nothing. To be sure, two days later on November 10 I went to see Dr. M, my primary physician. She sent me to a wonderful woman surgeon whom I will name Dr. B, who did a needle guidance biopsy that day to confirm what was going on. My fiancé, Chuck, now my husband, went with me through it all. Then the results came back and I felt like I had been struck by a train and everything I ever was or hoped to be my whole life had died inside. I never dreamed I would ever have to go through such an ordeal. No one should have to feel the way I felt that night. Dr. B referred me to an oncology group with Dr. C and there my journey began. It was three months to the day of my first surgery, November 19, 2004 before I ever got my first chemotherapy treatment. At the time, my medical insurance was not active until January 2004 through my employer. I went to my first appointment and the receptionist informed me that I must pay the entire consultation payment that day, which was quite expensive for me at the time. I then asked if I could pay it in two payments. She said that was not the policy. I was somewhat disappointed and told her I would come back with the money in two weeks. My tumor was very aggressive and by this time I was a Stage 2-A. I thought that is too long to wait. Therefore, I proceeded to search for treatment elsewhere. So I went searching for another doctor to accept me as a patient. I was told

CHARLOTTE BERGER by my second doctor that the cost would be way over my head and I couldn’t afford him. I then had a third doctor accept me as a patient. Finally I thought! About a week prior to starting treatment there, I called to confirm my appointment just to be sure. They told me the doctor does not come to that hospital in the county I lived in, and if I were to be admitted she could not take that risk. In addition, that the hospital in the county she practiced in may turn me away if I ever needed a blood transfusion and they could not take that risk. At this point, I was about to give up. I then called my surgeon back and told her what had happened. I said to her, “Dr. B, I quit! Whatever God has in store for me, I will accept. I will be okay.” She said, “Charlotte, I want you to go back to see Doctor C in the morning.” Therefore, I went. During my examination, he held my hands, looked me in the eye, and said, “We are fortunate that I don’t have to tell you that it’s too late. You were supposed to be here three months ago. You needed treatment within 30 days after surgery. Where have you been?” I told

him my story and that I was there three months ago and what had happened with the payment matter. He said, “I don’t know why you were told that, we never turn patients away here for lack of insurance. Young lady, you are going to get your treatment if it is the last thing I do on this Earth. First, I must send you back to see Dr. B.” Tears streamed down my face and I asked him why. He asked me if my neck hurt. I told him I had a cramp and I assumed it was because I may have slept on my pillow wrong the night before. I was so wrong. The surgeon saw me right away and then she scheduled me for my second surgery. It was New Years Eve 2004 by now when I received the dreaded phone call after that visit. A call no one ever wants to answer. The surgeon had found one isolated cancer cell in my Supraclavicular Node. Wow! I was again devastated and I had not even had my first treatment yet. On February 4, 2004, I was in my second surgery. My treatments lasted from February 19, 2004 through November 22, 2004. I was well, praise the Lord. My prayer is that no cancer

patient and survivor views what happened to me as a “doom and gloom” story, but one we can rejoice in. Yes, it seems as if your life is over and sad to say, for some, the outcome is not always as we hope. I used to feel that a day never went by that it didn’t cross my mind and I thought “What if? What if it comes back?” I say it because that is what cancer is, an unnecessary evil demon with no mercy or respect of persons. Every day now, I believe that I am completely well. I tell myself that God is in control and that He is watching over me inside and outside and has healed me forever. Survival is a blessing as is life. I do not believe that God heals us and brings us so far only to let it happen again. However, we must also do our part in staying healthy. At first, I was angry because of what happened to me. However, with much prayer, the anger is gone and love and trust in Jesus Christ replaced it. I will never blame God or those doctors for my having had cancer. I am not an expert in this field of cancer, but staying positive, lots of prayer and faith, along with family support is a good start of getting though any illness. I always try to do right and live a clean and healthy lifestyle, but that does not matter to cancer. We must beat it. I have learned a lot on my journey these past 14 years, probably more than I ever wanted to know. It amazes me so much that I want to share it with all who have encountered this disease and want to overcome or have won this war. It is a natural desire to want to ignore it or hope it will go away without any help from the doctors or medicine, but I am living proof we cannot and should not ignore the big C word, cancer. I believe that one must truly live by faith in God to overcome the trials of life and disease. My faith has brought me to this point of truly being a cancer survivor. Currently, I am

LIFE AFTER FROM PAGE 1A writing my book entitled “My Blue Moon” which I hope to have published by December this year and telling my story to others. I pray it will encourage and give hope to those who encounter cancer or any other disease. Through prayer and faith we can overcome allthings through Jesus Christ. I want my story to enlighten others and hope it will lift their hearts and spirit, encourage, and give them peace of mind. We do not understand why God chooses to heal some people and not others at times. He knows what is best down the road for all of

us more than we do. We must fight this battle and win this awful war. We struggle against it with hope and medicine, but sometimes it is still too late. That is when we must go on and be stronger than ever. Whatever God has in store for us is His decision and not ours. We must trust in God. Being sick with any disease often makes us think about not being able to do the things we want to do, or accomplish all of our goals in life. We tend to put those things out of our mind and we focus on what we are going through, which is perfectly normal because we are

just human beings and that is our nature. Praying hard for survival now becomes a priority. We must survive. There is life after cancer and you, too, can be survivor. I want to add in conclusion that when disease attacks our bodies, not just cancer, it is hard for us to remember the thousands of others who are going through the same thing or worse. We tend to focus on what we have and that is normal. However, this is not all about me. I also want to remember someone special to me, Angel, my daughter, who lives in Kentucky and all who may be going through any illness. She had a rare cancer and took chemother-

apy from May 16 this year until about three weeks ago. The doctor did complete body scans and told us the great news that she is now cancer free. Let us try to remember all those who may be going through sickness and remember that our God is still in the miracle business. God bless everyone who reads my story. I appreciate Philip, our editor, who gave me this opportunity. I hope it helps others who may need a little encouragement through faith and prayer. My upcoming book will also have some poetry in it as well. See, there is truly life after cancer. We only have to believe.

VIEWPOINT

Facebook meddles in the 2018 midterm elections By Thomas L. Knapp On October 11, Facebook announced the removal of 559 pages and 251 accounts from its service, accusing the account holders of “spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior.” The purged users stand accused of posting “massive amounts of content ... to drive traffic to their websites” with suspicious “timing ahead of US midterm elections.” Facebook admits to “legitimate reasons” for such behavior -- “it’s the bedrock of fundraising campaigns and grassroots organizations.” Not to mention the operations of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and a bunch of other users/ pages which weren’t purged. Facebook also admits that it has previously “enforced this policy against many Pages, Groups and accounts created to stir up political debate ...” In other words, Facebook’s administrators are meddling in politics -- including the 2018 US midterm elections -- in the name of preventing meddling in politics. Who benefits from the meddling? It doesn’t seem to fall along “left/right” lines in particular. The victims come from across the political spectrum -- from Reverb Press on the left, to Right Wing News on the right, to the libertarian Free Thought Project -- some with millions of Facebook followers. The primary thread connecting victims of the purge seems to be that they are critics and/or opponents of the American political “mainstream” or “establishment.” In a sense, this is nothing new. Even before Internet “social media,” the old guard “mainstream media” tended to draw fairly narrow lines on either side of the perceived political “center” or “consensus” and avoid coloring (or publishing e.g. reader letters that colored) very far outside those lines. One might support or oppose a tax increase, or even a particular tax, but opposing taxation in general? Why, that was just crazy and not worthy of consideration -- or of column inches. The Internet and social media threatened to change that. In fact, they DID change that ... for a little while, at any rate. But now Facebook, Twitter et al. are part of the establishment, and they’re starting to act like it. How can we fight that trend? Some would have us classify social media as “public utilities” or something of the sort and regulate them as such. But who would regulate them? The very establishment in question. On the other hand, it’s becoming clear that these companies are already looking more and more like extensions of the state -- and the establishment the state serves -than like bona fide “private sector” actors. What is to be done? From where I sit, the only real option is to see if the next generation of “social media” - sites/services like Diaspora, Mastodon, Minds, MeWe, Gab, et al. -- can supersede Facebook and Twitter in the same way that Facebook and Twitter superseded print and television news and the more centralized/static site model of the older Internet.

He lives and works in north central Florida.

Down South: before cars came along -our equestrian past obese as today’s fast-food interstate travelers are. Yeah, things change and a lot of folks say the good old days weren’t that good. I get it, and I’m not about to trade my car for a horse, but I sure appreciate the quaint and simple way things worked back then. People sitting in saddles, carriages, and stagecoaches saw the land up close, and they saw it before bulldozers and asphalt brought blight to it. And, besides, what they say is true. You can’t miss what you never had. Horses worked just fine until that Ford fellow came along. Visit my website at www.tompoland.net Email me at tompol@earthlink.net.

By Tom Poland For most people in this country, riding a horse is an act of recreation, not transportation. Riding a horse is a choice, not a necessity. I’ve ridden a horse maybe five times in my life. Didn’t care for it. Many times, however, I rode Granddad’s mule, a rough ride without a saddle, but I’ve never had to depend on a horse to get from point A to point B. I never had to worry about feeding a horse nor worry about tying up a horse like they did in the old westerns. I park and get out. Back in the wild, wild West, a gunslinger would swing off his mount, throw the reins around a post, and saunter into the saloon for a shot of whiskey. Soon, gunshots rang out and someone would throw a bad guy out a window. Well, no worries about the horse bolting and running. It was hitched. Going nowhere. Over the last month, two book events brought our equestrian past to light. In Laurens, South Carolina, I came across a hitching post right by Highway 76. That post, slender but stout, had rust running down it from where an iron ring impaled it. That the post existed surprised me. Some folks decided to save this old hitching post, and for that I thank them. Seeing it made me imagine a dusty trail, no power lines, no asphalt. No noisy engines. No fumes save currents of air off fresh road apples. No gas stations and no sharing the road with tanker trucks. I was in Laurens, by the way to speak about the surprises you see along the back roads. And there I found a surprise by a busy modern highway, a hitching post from the old days.

Raising awareness of breast cancer Ravneet Bajwa, MD McLeod Oncology and Hematology Associates In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, McLeod Health is raising awareness of breast cancer, the most common cancer among American women. What is Breast Cancer? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that grows in one or both of the breasts. Breast cancer usually develops in the ducts or lobules, also known as the milk-producing areas of the breast. Breast cancer usually has no symptoms when the tumor is small and most treatable. Therefore, it is important to follow screening guidelines for early detection, before symptoms are noticeable. Some warning signs of breast cancer include: • Painless new lump in the breast or underarm (armpit) • Thickening or swelling of part of the breast • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin • Redness or flaky skin in the nipple area or the breast • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area • Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood • Any change in the size or the shape of the breast. Keep in mind that some of these warning signs can happen with other conditions that are not cancer. Who Develops Breast Cancer? According to the National Cancer Institute, a woman has a 1 in 8 lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women (after lung cancer). The American Cancer Society estimates 268,670 new cases of breast cancer this year. It is also important to recognize that breast cancer can affect men as well. Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among

men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. Screening Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease. Three main tests are used to screen the breasts for cancer. Talk to your doctor about which tests are right for you, and when you should have them. Screening may include any or all of the following: mammogram, clinical breast exam by a health care provider and self-breast exam. Most expert groups recommend screening mammography to start at the age of 40 to 50 years in average risk women. Women at higher risk of breast cancer (e.g., women with a strong family history of breast cancer, previous benign biopsies of the breast) should begin annual screening earlier than age 40. Clinical breast examination by a health care provider and self-breast exam alone should not replace a mammogram in women above 40 years of age but can be used along with screening mammograms. The American Cancer Society recommends that clinical breast examination should be a part of a health examination for women in their 20’s, 30’s and more preferably yearly beginning at age 40. For many women in the region, access to a screening mammogram has been improved by the McLeod Mobile Mammography Unit, which each week travels to businesses, industries and healthcare facilities. The unit provides a convenient, comfortable, and private setting in which women can undergo a screening mammogram. How is Breast Cancer Diagnosed? Doctors often use additional tests to detect or diagnose breast cancer. These tests may include breast ultrasound, diagnos-

tic mammogram, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast and ultrasound guided biopsy (fine-needle aspiration or core biopsy). A tissue biopsy is required to confirm the diagnosis of cancer. How is Breast Cancer Treated? Breast cancer is treated in several ways. It depends

on the kind of breast cancer and how far it has spread. Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biologic therapy and radiation. Patients with breast cancer often receive more than one type of treatment. Prevention The exact cause of breast cancer is unknown.

However, there are ways you can help lower your risk of breast cancer. A woman can help decrease her risk by maintaining a healthy body mass index (BMI), getting daily cardiovascular activity, limiting alcohol intake, avoiding tobacco exposure and refraining from hormone replacement therapy. Where Can I Go to Get Screened? Most likely, you can get screened for breast cancer at a clinic, hospital or doctor’s office. If you want to be screened for breast cancer, call your doctor’s office. They can help you schedule an appointment. Most health insurance companies pay for the cost of breast cancer screening tests. If you do not have insurance, the Best Chance Network is available to help women ages 47 to 64, who need to be screened for breast cancer or cervical cancer. For more information on breast cancer screening and

prevention, please contact Tracey O’Neal, the McLeod Breast Oncology Navigator, at (843) 777-5418. Dr. Ravneet Bajwa cares for patients with Dr. Rajesh Bajaj, Dr. Michael Pavy, Dr, Sreenivas Rao, Dr. Jamie Smith, and Dr. Karim Tazi at McLeod Oncology and Hematology Associates, a division of McLeod Regional Medical Center. A Board Certified Oncologist, Dr. Bajwa joined McLeod in November 2017 following the completion of her Fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at the University of Florida Department of Medicine in Gainesville, Florida. She received her medical degree in 2010 from Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore of Manipal University in India, and completed her Internal Medicine Residency in 2014 at the University of Florida Department of Medicine.

cation in the field of computer science and integrated technology,” Jodan said. “Each of our member schools must provide our students access to this important platform. This workshop is just the first step in the full integration of this technological process. We, as an association, look forward to the

advances that will be developed at each of our schools based on the framework of this workshop.” The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.

Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.

Two Florence One high school seniors have been named semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. Florence One congratulates Annie Kate Watson and Alice Lee for their selection as semifinalists, an honor that less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors achieve.

In this high-stakes competition, students will compete for 7,500 scholarships worth $31 million. Finalists will be selected in February 2019, and scholarship winners will

be announced in the spring and summer. The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and college scholarships. Semifinalists are chosen based on high scores on the PSAT. There are three types of awards: National Merit $2,500 scholarships that are single-payment awards; corporatesponsored Merit awards that may be renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study or one-time awards; and college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards that are renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study.

Inaugural HVAC Engineering and Technology Academy class at FDTC honored during scholarship ceremony The Florence-Darlington Technical College (FDTC) Educational Foundation recently presented scholarship certificates to 10 high school students enrolled in the new HVAC Engineering & Technology Academy. The new dual enrollment program is designed for high school students, and it was founded through a partnership with Florence-based companies, Johnstone Supply and Quality Service Company. In addition to helping design the program, both sponsors pledged a combined $20,000 to create the HVAC Future Leaders Scholarship Fund. All 10 students in the inaugural class will receive scholarship assistance from the fund. The HVAC Engineering & Technology Academy allows high school students to take courses at FDTC and earn college credit towards a certificate in HVAC Technology. Students who complete the program may enter the workforce immediately upon graduation or continue their higher education at FDTC and earn an Associate’s Degree in HVAC Technology. The inspiration for the new program came from Angie Woodberry and Chris McDonald, two professionals in the HVAC industry. Woodberry is the owner of Johnstone Supply, a leading wholesale distributor of HVAC equipment, parts and supplies. McDonald is the owner of Quality Service Company, a locally owned and operated HVAC company.

Both business leaders said they have seen HVAC contractors struggle to find qualified employees in recent years, and they want to raise awareness about the benefits of studying trades. Woodberry believes that the traditional four-year college track is not necessarily the best choice for every student. “Tech schools are seen as the ‘alternative’ to a fouryear school,” Woodberry said. “We want very much to help people realize that trade schools are not the alternative at all. They are the absolute best place and should be the top choice for these kids!” Chris McDonald added that for many students, trade jobs like HVAC may offer an opportunity to develop natural skills into a career. “I think the decision about what to do after high school comes down to finding the best place to develop your natural skills,” McDonald said. “For those students who enjoy using the skills required in trade fields, there are many excellent career choices available to them. Skilled trade jobs are in high demand, because the services they provide are critical to the everyday lives of all people and cannot be outsourced to other countries.” Students recognized during the ceremony on Friday, October 5 at the FDTC Automotive and HVAC Technology Center included: Dawson Baker, South Florence High School; Frank Bateman, South Florence High School; Robert Brewer,

A survivor’s story - Latia Sutton By Latia Sutton I will never be able to forget February 6, 2015. It was the day that I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I was 38 years old. When I heard the doctor say ‘you have breast cancer’ it was as though I was having an out of body experience. I was so upset because I had found a lump two years prior

The football contest winner for Week 7 was James Spell with a record of 13-7.

to being diagnosed through a self-examination, but was told that it was nothing to worry about. I thought ‘This can’t be true!’ I sent out a group text to my friends, family, and coworkers saying ‘I have breast cancer and I don’t want to talk’. I thought about how this wasn’t fair. I thought about my son who was in college and how he needed

me to be there for him. Days later as I was sitting in the doctor’s office listening to all kinds of medical terminology, all I could think of was how I was going to tell my son that I may not be here for long. So when my doctor asked if I had any questions, my only one was ‘Am I going to die?’ The doctor told me that it was up to me. He was going to tell me
