Tootie Terry was surprised when event chair Kin Konkol asked if Tootie would take the honors, "I was surprised! There are a lot of people that are qualified," she said of the honors. Most who know Tootle for her many years as school secretary, church and com- munity activities and wife of Chuck Terry think of her as a person with a happy disposi- tion, even since her diagno- sis of cancer in April 2002. "It's all an attitude," she said of her treatments and remis- sion. In the past two years Tootie has found herself as the support and Patient Partner to others diagnosed with Acute Myleogenic Leukemia. In Murray County there have been three other adults and one youth diagnosed with the same cancer. Cancer support is an important part of any patient's recovery: having an extensive network of not only family and friends but also meeting and talking with other cancer survivors is proven through American Cancer Society funded research to improve the quality of life for cancer patients. Tootie was not a stranger to cancer prior to her own diagnosis as her sis- ter had breast cancer. That is one of the reasons why she had gone to the annual Relay for Life event. "Luminaria are the most touching part of it," she said of Relay. "It tells you how many people have been touched by cancer." Tootie believes that there were two angels watch- ing over her two years ago, as her symptoms didn't have to do with leukemia, it was just a message to get to the doctor. She had been doctor- ing due to what she had thought was an allergy or sinus infection. She had I CLASSIFIED ADS 1 WORK FOR YOU even been on two types of antibiotics. But it was under the instructions of her son Kim that she asked for a CBC test. When the test results came back with a 200,000 white cell count she was sent to Sioux Falls with. ing days then spent the next 32 days in chemotherapy. Tootie commented that she really didn't want to talk about all the details of the treatment or losing her hair but rather redirected it to her mantra: You need to have a good attitude. Then the bubbly laugh- ter started. When asked what provoked the chuckle she recalled the baseball cap that she wore during her treatments, but it was the gift of some cute turbans that a workmate of her son had created with the use of surgical caps that brought forth the laughter. She explained that she preferred the baseball cap and donated the turbans to the American Cancer Society for another person to benefit from. This year's Relay for Life will be on August 14 and 15 at the Murray County Fairgrounds and Tootle is looking forward to another year of celebration and hope. Amazed that there may be individuals that have never been to the Relay for Life Tootle impressed upon them, 'l'hey still need to go, you need to know how many peo- ple have been touched by cancer, a friend or family member, people you didn't even know." , Lichty's , kl 601 First Ave.  \\;/ Flowers or Gifts" for all occasions V Balloon Bouquets Decorating Items Pictures- Silks Valspar Paints 274-6114 a Watt's Line \\;/ 1-800-645-6479 aestbrook, MN. 2 TD Wire Service Anita's Conservatory of Dance Annual dance recital on Sat., May 22, 4:00 and 7:30 p.m. in the Red Rock Central High School Auditorium in Lamberton.
