Dear Family, Friends, and Clients, Summer is just around the corner, and it is almost time for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. You may remember hearing from me last year. Thanks in part to your generous support, I am very proud to announce that Team OPC was one of the top fundraising team for our Relay in 2012! More than 83 percent of the money raised from Relay goes directly to support the American Cancer Society’s programs for research, education and services for patients and their families whose lives have been touched by Cancer. I feel blessed to be part of such an important cause. Please help support my efforts for Team OPC again this year with a tax-deductible contribution to the American Cancer Society. Also, please …

"Jerri Lynn refers to herself as a warrior. Honest to God I could not think of a word to describe her better," said Stephanie Beery of the American Cancer Society.
Jerri Lynn Baker is a warrior. Relay for Life gave her hope as she battled Stage IV cancer and, nine years later, she is co-chairing that Relay event. In August 2004, Baker, of Oswego, was diagnosed with Stage IV tonsil cancer. After having her tonsils removed and a feeding tube installed, she suffered two rounds of chemotherapy, each requiring a five-day hospital stay, and 41 radiation treatments. Baker said she barely survived the first round of chemo and was rushed back to the hospital by ambulance, requiring a week in intensive care. Baker said she lost 52 pounds because the radiation tore up her throat so badly that she couldn’t eat. She finished her treatment in December 2004 and shows no signs of reoccurrence. Baker’s mom, Edie …

About 450 people headed out to Oswego High School on Friday night to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
A year and a half ago, Vicky Gibson of Oswego got some news that changed her life. Now she’s helping to change the lives of others. Eighteen months ago, Gibson was diagnosed with breast cancer. While many may consider this a curse, Gibson says it was a gift. She’s been through the treatments and come out the other side, and now she’s able to guide others through the process, and offer peace of mind and hope. “I had cancer, cancer didn’t have me,” she said “It brought me a lot closer to my friends and family.” Those friends and family members turned out in force Friday night for the 9th annual Relay for Life of Oswego/Montgomery. For 12 hours, supporters of the American Cancer Society walked the track at Oswego High School, and 114 of those…
