When community members pooled their resources to form the Berlin Hospital Association in 1911, little did they know how much their hometown hospital would impact the local quality of life the next 100 years and beyond.
For Kathy Beulen, the upcoming Community Health Network Helping Hands for Cancer 5k Run/Walk brings up many memories—some happy, some sad. It was just 14 months ago that the wife and mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 49. Her first symptoms appeared in February 2012, and after a mammogram, ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy she was diagnosed with DCIS (ducal carcinoma insitu). That diagnosis was followed by the news that she had inflammatory breast cancer which is a rare and fast spreading variety. What transpired next was a whirlwind of tests and treatments--a PET scan, placement of a port in her chest and just two days later, chemotherapy treatments began.
On the eve of their Helping Hands for Cancer 5k Run/Walk, Community Health Network received an unexpected donation for the cause from the students at Berlin’s Clay Lamberton Elementary School. The $1000 check came from the school’s Elves R Us program, an annual event at Clay in which fifth grade students set up a holiday store for students to shop for their families. The store is stocked with items donated and purchased from local businesses and all proceeds from the sale are then given to local charities.
Join Community Health Network employees and hundreds of others for the 12th annual CHN Helping Hands for Cancer 5k Run/Walk. This annual event is fun for the whole family and benefits a great cause—the CHN Foundation Helping Hands for Cancer Fund.
The Community Health Network Foundation is hosting a free estate planning seminar on Thursday, May 16, 2013 from 6:00-7:00pm at Berlin Memorial Hospital in the Lower Level Meeting Room.
Take Action to Lower Your Risk
Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes – including nearly 5,000 people in Green Lake, Marquette and Waushara Counties. It is estimated that nearly one-third of the people with diabetes do not know that they have the disease. In addition, an estimated 79 million adults are estimated to have pre-diabetes, placing them at increased risk for developing the disease.
The Read. Run. Reach. Campaign, spearheaded by Community Health Network, is entering its final weeks, as the countdown to the CHN Helping Hands for Cancer 5k Run/Walk begins.
The Community Health Network (CHN) Diabetes Support Group will be meeting on Thursday May 9th from 4:00-5:00pm and on Friday May 10th from 1:00-2:00pm. The support group takes place in the Lower Level MOB Conference Room at Berlin Memorial Hospital.
It’s hard to believe, what seems like yesterday has actually been 20 years since I lost my mother to Cancer. The strength and courage she showed throughout her battle is fresh in my mind. Her determination and refusal to give up has always inspired me—credit that I give her for helping me beat Cancer many years later.
