t' 8A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Aug. 13, 1981 f i i :i i , CHAIRMAN NANNIE DRAKE TURNED IN A CHECK FOR $1,620.15 to the American Cancer Society as the result of the recent drive in Malakoff. Co- chairmen of the local drive with Mrs. Drake were Loretta Vieregge and Laverne Perkins. Mrs. Drake has expressed the appreciation of the Society for all volun- teer workers and doners who helped to make the drive a success (Staff photo by Lori Calla way ) O St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is proud to announce that Officer Howard Copeland has been named to head the 1981 Fall Bike-A-Thon Campaign in Malakoff. In making the announcement, Clifford Damstrom, St. Jude Director for the Southwest Region, stated that "We are proud to find such a dedicated person for this important job." St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is the largest childhood cancer research center in the United States, and it is the first research center dedicated ex- clusively to the research and conquest of catastrophic diseases of children, such as cancer and other life-destroying diseases," Damstrom stated. "Scientists and physicians, working side by side at St. Jude, have succeeded in rewriting medical textooks. When St. Jude accepted its first patient in 1962, the survival rate for children diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia was less than 5%. Today, the disease free survival figure for children in long-term remission has grown to 50%. Cancer treatment procedures that originated at St. Jude are now being used to treat children throughout the United States and in other parts of the world. Such progress has brought world-wide acclaim to St. Jude." "Children come to St. Jude for one purpose: A chance to live," Damstrom stated. "But no one has ever been charged for medical treatment. Yet medicines and treatments are extremely expensive. St. Jude has always been supported by the public, and we must continue to rely on public support to help finance the research and patient care programs. Over 70% of our 26 million dollar budget must come from public support. That is why this Bike-A-Thon is so important." Danny Thomas, who founded St. Jude Children's Research Hospital because of a vow, stated its purpose clearly: "To wipe catastrophic diseases of children from the face of the Earth." "Since Thomas opened the research center in 1962, his dream of conquering cancer and other diseases that destroy our children has been brought closer to reality," stated Damstrom. "Thomas is still extremely active in pursuing this goal, and he inspires all of us in this cause." "There are numerous duties for anyone willing to donate their time and energy," Copeland said. "I urge you to participate in this event, not only for the Bike-A-Thon but for the personal satisfaction it will give you to know you have helped in your own way to see it become a success. The children at St. Jude's will be the ones that benefit." "Again, I urge everyone who can and will to contact the Malakoff Police Dept. leaving your name and telephone number so that I may talk with you personally. I want this to be a huge success and we will have something to look forward to next year," Copeland said. The location and time of the Bike-A-Thon in Malakoff will, be announced at a later date.
