Mike encouraged me to push forward, and between the two of us, we succeeded in finding enough survivors to feature.

It seemed to me that no one would want to open up about such a personal experience. Wrong again! Those whom I interviewed were more concerned with let- ting others in on what helped them survive than dragging up bad memories. Still, it was a sensitive subject, more for me than the interviewees, and I am very grateful to those who were patient with me while I was still learning. Throughout my seven week project, I learned so much more than just medical terms and what different treatment meth- ods are involved. I experienced several extreme drives to win, and experienced what monu- mental tasks the human mind can accomplish if set to them. Nearly every survivor I talked with told me that a positive atti- tude was key in their recovery. How interesting to think that simply the way someone choos- es to look at their situation could make the difference between life and death. Should I ever find myself in a similar situation, I only hope I can be as positive as those I have talked with. I know if I fol- lowed their example I would have a better chance at success. Maybe the positive attitude makes all the difference, maybe it only helps. I choose to believe it plays a big part in the out- come. I would like to thank all the survivors I interviewed: Mayor Conley, Bea Muston, Mary Crandall, Marie Pope, Dave Duing, Rick Jenkins, and Mary Reibold, for heir willingness to share their stories, their open- ness and honesty, and for offer- ing insight to those who might be going through a similar expe- rience. Their experiences and insights were also profound for those who have never had any experience with cancer, and for offering representation to those survivors who are not ready to share yet. Thanks also to Nancy Weber for sharing her story with the Trenton Sun readers and those who attended the Relay for Life. Thank you also for helping me to mature my comfort level, for I was a bit intimidated by the subject at the start of my pro- ject. I now feel that the knowl- edge I gained from each of you will be an asset to me in the future and help me to support any cancer fighters I may come into contact with. My favorite part of the project was hearing about the gener- ous, helpful things others did for the survivors and their fam- ilies. Such stories include Bea Muston's church , New Baden Zion UCC, providing Christmas for her two young daughters the year she began treatment; Marie Pope's counselor who was there with her every step of the way; Dave Duing receiving 226 get-well cards from friends; Rick Jenkins' friend Mark Lock- owitz driving to St. Louis when Rick could not; Mary Reibold's friends, delivering food to her family for three weeks after surgery; and all the prayers and support that Mary Crandall and Mayor Conley received from their church, Trenton United Methodist. It is the kind ges- tures like these that encourage cancer patients,:to keep on fight- I guess the most astounding fact to me is how hard each sur- vivor fought to win. They' let nothing stand in their way; not physical aspects, not mental. They kept strong to the belief that they would make it through, and in the end suc- ceeded. I have no doubt that anyone who makes such an effort comes out even stronger than they were at the start, and these were some amazing, tough people to begin with! Everyone hears the clichd "You can do anything if you put your mind to it," but most, like me, take it for granted. If there is one thing that sticks out the most to me from the project, it is that the old clichd is very, very true. This really brought it home for me. ' I am very glad I was able to participate in the promotion of the Relay for Life and publish- ing the stories of some of our local survivors. Thanks to Mike Conley also, for believing in me enough to give me the opportu- nity to work on this project. I hope the survivor stories made as big an impact on others as they did on me! We at the Sun extend our per- sonal thanks to everyone who agreed to be interviewed for this series of stories, and pay tribute to all cancer survivors every- where for their courage and accomplishment. f The o?/e to see: 1 I I ----A- I Ch.ct DC.orae, I I i I 109 W St Lou+ Street I I w I Lanon.
