?You have a lump.? These four words are probably some of the most frightening in a woman?s life. These four words are what Janet Hayn heard from her doctor a little over a year ago. ?I told the doctor it wasn?t there,? Hayn said. ?He said, ?Yes it is,? and put my hand on it and I said, ?Oh my God, I have a lump.?? Hayn, a resident of neighboring Montrose, learned of the lump on Aug. 27, 2007. Since then she has been living in a world she thought she would never have to enter.

Wade Battley is a survivor. She survived the awkwardness of high school, the excitement of marriage and the stress of being a working mother with a career in Hollywood. And now she is surviving cancer. "Before, it was unthinkable for someone to last five years with cancer," said Battley, a La Crescenta resident. But she's going on six years and her ninth round of chemotherapy since she was first diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in 2001. Battley is a wife and mother of a 14-year-old girl and says that life has not been any worse since her diagnosis.

In the early morning hours last Saturday, volunteers from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station began setting up for a pancake breakfast at Mayors' Discovery Park in La Cañada. A steady stream of law enforcement officers, families and community members filled their plates with eggs and sausage. The event was not just a gathering of old friends and fellow officers but instead was a strong show of support for one of their own in need. Sgt. Randy Rousseau was diagnosed with leukemia on April 8, 2004.

Winston Churchill once said, "Dogs look up to you. Cats look down on you. Give me a pig. He just looks you in the eye and treats you like an equal." Our dog, Audrey Hepburn, came to live with us in March of 2004. Actually, our son got her. Andrew was home on medical leave, having just started a new round of experimental chemo. Andrew figured that if treatment worked, he would move back to his place with a dog. And if it did not, then his parents would have someone to take care of. None of us knew that Andrew had only two more weeks.

When La Cañada Flintridge resident Nancy Illian went to the doctorseven and half years ago with concern over an issue with her menstrual period, she knew she wasn't just wasting time. Forty-eight at the time, Illian had been the opposite of a hypochondriac up to that point in her life, only visiting the doctor when absolutely necessary. Her doctor told her not to worry, so she went home. However, after finding herself uncomfortably bloated, Illian went back, only to have the doctor tell her to do some sit-ups to relieve the problem.

Seven years after his first wife, Mary, died of cancer, Glendale school board member and past president Chakib “Chuck” Sambar, a resident of La Cañada Flintridge, is facing the disease again with his current wife, Lois. But, though he calls it a “terrible, tragic disease,” Sambar is hopeful for the future and confident strides in cancer research have progressed in recent years. Those strides are a direct result of public support through donations and participation in fund-raising efforts, such as the upcoming Foothills Relay for Life, Sambar said.
