www.LovellChronicle.com July 14, 2011 } The Lovell Chronicle I 3 Relay for Life: BY PATTI CARPENTER Cancer is something 9-year-old Trevor Jewell has known most of his life. He was diagnosed with leu- kemia at age two. ' "When he was growing up he knew nothing differ- ent," said his mother, Su- zette Jewell. "When he would go out in public he knew he would have to wear a mask just because." Jew- ell was well received by his peers in spite of the mask, and his peers were "amaz- ingly tolerant," according to his mother, in spite of being bald from the chemother- apy treatments he was re- ceiving.' "It was a little devas- tating at first," said Su- zette Jewell. "I had to take him to Salt Lake City every week at first." The young- er Jewell endured, often- times painful, chemothera- py treatments, spinal taps, and bone marrow tests on those visits, which contin- ued for a full three and a half years. "Cancer just picks and chooses who it wants," said Jewell. "It is very random." At the hospital, Trev- or Jewell earned "beads of courage" from hospital staff for the painful treatments he received. He earned a white bead for every che- One cancer survivor's story PATTI CARPENTER Trevor Jewell and his mother Suzette Jewell plan to participate in the Relay for Life event on July 29 at Kevin P.

Jewell is proud to own three full strings of beads from those days at the hospital and still finds "We keep them stored in a special place so they don't get lost or broken and Trevor still shares them with his friends at times," said Suzette Jewell. Trevor plans to partici- pate in the survivors' walk at the Relay for Life and hopes for the honor of car- rying the survivors' ban- ner again this year. The family, including his three other siblings, also plans to participate in the team event. Trevor is in remis- sion and has been off che- motherapy treatments for three years. He enjoys baseball, wrestling, soccer, and most of all enjoys just being a "normal" kid again. "He lost so much of his childhood to this disease," said Suzette. "The thing he loves most of all right now is to just play with his friends." Trevor is a third grade stu- dent at Lovell Elementary. This story is the first in a series of three stories about cancer survivors in our com- munity. The Chronicle will publish a story each week leading up to the Relay for Life event scheduled to take place on July 29, starting at 7 p.m. at Kevin P. Robertson Stadium at Lovell High School. Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area prepares for high water levels Bighorn Canyon Nation- al Recreation Area is prepar- ing for high water levels on both Bighorn Lake and the Bighorn River throughout July. Please keep in mind the following predictions are subject to change due to weather conditions and wa- ter management decisions. As you may well know the area has received record snowfall and rain this past winter and spring and as a result runoff is at record levels. Lake levels are ex- pected to reach the upper end of the flood pool on Big- horn Lake. This will mean that many docks and camp- grounds will be inaccessi- ble until lake levels drop. The lake level is expect- ed to peak at about 3655 ft sometime around July 15th and may well continue at high levels throughout the month. The following is a status of campgrounds on Bighorn Lake: There is the possibility of a closure of the Black Canyon campground due to flood- ed campsites starting this coming weekend of July 9th-10th, and continuing until further notice. Please check with a ranger or at the park visitor center for an update. The docks and floating restrooms in Black Canyon will still be accessible. Dayboard 9 visitor use area will most likely be ac- cessible throughout this high water event: Medi- cine Creek campground is closed. River flows are cur- rently at 8,500 cfs but are expected to increase after this weekend and may ex- ceed 10,000 cfs for the en- tire month of July. Please use caution when launch- ing and retrieving boats at the river launch sites. Please re-use and recycle The Kevin P. Robertson Memorial Stadium was ablaze with luminarias during last year's Relay for Life event. FifthAnnual Relay for Life organizers ready to light up the night July 29 BY PATTI CARPENTER Organizers of the Fifth Annual Relay for Life plan to have the lights shine bright at this year's fund- raiser for the American Cancer Society. The event, which will take place on, Friday, July 29, at Kevin P. Robertson Memorial Sta- dium, starting at 7 p.m., features a beautiful dis- play of candle-lit luminar- ias to honor those who have won and some who have lost their battle with can- cer. Luminarias are small paper bags filled with sand and one strategically placed votive candle. When lit, the bags create a lantern effect. Festivities begin with a flag ceremony and the na- tional anthem performed by Rachel and Randy Cart- er of Lovell. Shortly after- ward as many as 75 can- cer survivors will walk one lap around the track while Lovell Elementary School teacher Chauna Bischoff leads her 4th-5th grade stu- dents in a series of inspira- tional songs. The survivors lap will be followed by a caregivers lap to honor those friends and family members who supported the cancer survivors throughout their ordeal. Afterward, color- ful balloons will be released into the sky. At approximately 11 p.m. the luminarias will be lit and will burn throughout the night as teams of indi- viduals take turns walking continuously around the track until dawn. Through- out the evening, luminar- ias strategically placed on the bleachers will be rear- ranged to spell out words like hope, faith, and other inspirational messages. "The idea is to have re- lay team members walk continuously around the track all night long as a re- minder that cancer doesn't sleep," explained entertain- ment chairwoman Lorece Doerr. Other entertain- ment will include singing, dancing and instrumental music by a variety of local musicians along with Zum- ba, line dancing and even Karaoke. Last year the event raised close to $36,000. Or- ganizers hope to match that amount or raise more this year to support cancer re- search. The carnival in- spired theme of this year's event is "Life's a Ride" and will include food, games and fun for the whole fam- ily. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
