Joyce A. Warthen, a homemaker who was a cancer awareness advocate, died Saturday of melanoma at her Violetville home. She was 62. Born in Baltimore and raised in Violetville, Joyce A. McCarthy was a 1957 graduate of Southern High School. She worked for several years at Travelers Insurance Co., and later was a community volunteer. As an advocate for cancer awareness the disease was diagnosed in her four times Mrs. Warthen walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and participated in cancer survivor activities at St. There’s a good reason for that, as any of the quarter million American women diagnosed with breast cancer each year will tell you. But breast cancer isn’t the only serious health risk women should be aware of, according to county health professionals. Some are fatal; others are not. Some are well known, others obscure.

You’re going through this traumatic experience, but you have to maintain a sound, rational mind to find a good doctor and make decisions.”Petersen’s cancer was found during a routine mammogram. When she heard her diagnosis, Petersen says, she remembers thinking, “This could mean that I could die.”

Cancer is not a stranger to Pam Schweitzer’s family. She and her brother survived colon cancer. A cousin and a sister in law have breast cancer. Another cousin died of the disease. But it took a little nudging from a friend to get her to enter a local breast cancer awareness contest calling for decorating plain white bras with fabric, paint, sequins and feathers. “My friend said, This is right up your alley,'” said Schweitzer, 58, of Crofton. An avid and meticulous quilter, Schweitzer did not think she had enough time to create an entry with three weeks left before the Oct. A lady bug bra bears the message “Love your Ladies.” A 9 year old titled his bra, “Why I Need You, Mom,” and another one, with eyes peeking out behind fingers, is called “Don’t be Shy Get Your Mammogram.” “Kiss for a Cure” is covered in pink Hershey’s kisses and a miniature Sherlock Holmes, pipe and magnifying glass grace “Early Detection: It’s Elementary!” The artist behind “Boob Bunnies” wrote in a blurb, “I have lived 2041 days since my diagnosis of breast cancer and I am still very thankful to be alive.”Man captains Crabs for a Cure
