sue a degree.
The goal of the Navy

port both the Sailor's mobile
lifestyle and educational
goals with rating relevant
degree programs. Courses
are offered in a variety of
formats, such as CD-ROM,
paper, or over the Internet.
Prospective students are
encouraged to meet with
representatives from the dif-
ferent institutions. Military

Help for some military homeowners
affected by the housing market crisis may

A provision of the stimulus package,
known as the Military Homeowners
Assistance Program (HAP), expands ben-
efits previously available only to ser-
vice members at Base Realignment and
Closure (BRAC) locations. Eligibility
now includes the following Department
of Defense (DOD) military and civil-
ian homeowners who purchased homes
before July 1, 2006 and who sell the
homes before Sept. 30, 2012:
*Wounded warriors who must relocate
for medical reasons.


CHINFO Award Winner


*Surviving spouses of fallen service
members-DOD, Coast Guard, and civil-
ians, who are forced to move within two
years of the death of the service member.
*Active duty service members under-
going foreclosure or unable to sell their
homes in the event of a permanent change
of station at least 50 miles from their cur-
rent permanent duty station.
Several options are available to assist
eligible homeowners, including private
sale, government purchase, and foreclo-
sure assistance.
The HAP is administered by the Army
Corps of Engineers for the DOD, and
guidance/instruction for implementa-
tion of the program is pending. Service

program criteria and wish to learn more
about eligibility, expanded benefits for
warriors in transition, surviving spous-

DoD Rethinks Carrier


From DoD
The Department of Defense
(DoD) announced Friday that
the final decision on whether
to permanently homeport an
aircraft carrier in Naval Station
Mayport will be made during
the 2010 Quadrennial Defense
Review (QDR).


The QDR will assess the need
for carrier strategic dispersal
in the broad context of future
threats, future Navy force struc-
ture, and likely cost effective-
ness.
The DoD intends to dredge
the Mayport channel in fiscal
2010 to allow the Navy port to


dock a nuclear-powered aircraft
carrier. This action would pro-
vide an alternative port for a
carrier on the East Coast if a
manmade or natural disaster
or other emergency closes the
Navy's base in Norfolk, Va., or
the surrounding sea approaches.
The dredging of the Mayport


channel will support any future
decisions to permanently home-
port a nuclear-powered aircraft
carrier. Additional work to
permanently homeport a carrier
would include follow-on wharf
improvements, infrastructure
upgrades for nuclear propulsion
plant maintenance facilities,


as well as any changes needed
to comply with the National
Environmental Policy Act. The
DoD will carefully review these
potential costs and will assess
the potential benefits associated
with an additional homeport on
the East Coast before commit-
ting to any future direction.

2 THE MIRROR, NS MAYPORT, I 1 .... I April 16, 2009


Chaplain's Corner


For most people hope car-
ries the idea of wishful think-
ing. However, there is quite a
distinct difference between the
two. Let me explain:
A handsome middle-aged
man had been a widower for
fourteen months. His friends
advised him to make some
positive changes and do some
new and interesting things. He
took their advice and went on a
seven-day cruise to the Eastern
Caribbean. While walking on
the deck one morning he walked
past a very attractive lady about
his age. She smiled at him. At
that moment something jumped
inside his heart. That evening
he noticed her again at the
dining room. She was sitting
alone. He approached her and


Chaplain Joe Molina
CDS40 Staff Chaplain
asked permission to join her for
supper. In the course of conver-
sation he brought up the ques-
tion: "Why did you smile at me
today?" "Because you bear a


strong resemblance to my sec-
ond husband," she replied. "Oh
how many times have you been
married?" he asked. "Once" she
answered. Now, that is wishful
thinking!
There's also the example of
the little girl who stashes away
hundreds of sugar cubes because
she was "hoping" for a horse.
That also is wishful thinking!
There are those that are hop-
ing against hope that the econ-
omy will improve after blindly
investing thousands of dollars
into the stock market. That can
also be wishful thinking.
Hope is the anchor of my
soul. Of all the abstract reali-
ties that keep my life in motion,
hope is one of the indispensable
items! If you take someone's


wealth, you'll just hinder him.
If you undermine someone's
purpose, you'll merely slow her
down. But, if you destroy peo-
ple's "hope," you'll stop them
cold.
The Nazis in his native
Germany arrested protestant
theologian Jurgun Moltman
during WWII. He spent several
years in a prison camp. Here's
his observation: "A man can-
not live without hope. Those
who lost hope in the camp lay
down, took ill and died. When
life's hope flounders a sadness
beyond comforting sets in."
Therefore, I must have "hope"
to survive and succeed. When
my hope leads me to the fulfill-
ment of a goal or life's dream,
my hope must then launch me


beyond that accomplishment to
dream new dreams and reach
new goals.
OK, so what is hope? Well,
you can start with a dictionary
definition as follows:
"To desire with expecta-
tion of obtainment" (Merriam
Webster's Collegiate Dictionary,
10th Edition). The dictionary's
approach tends to be general
and bland but it's a start. I will
expand on this definition by
stating that true hope is that,
but also much more. I believe
that hope is an essential char-
acteristic of the soul that reach-
es beyond myself to a power
which is greater and that does
not change. There is only one
unchanging being and that
being is God. My hope must be


anchored on that which does not
change because everything else
around me is changing, includ-
ing me. If God is unchanging
then so are his promises and
that gives me hope. It gives
me power to live, to strive, to
achieve. If I truly believe in
God's unchanging charac-
ter and his unchanging love
(PSALM 23) then my hope will
be invaded by God's unchang-
ing purpose for me. That pur-
pose is founded on God's very
best for my life. My journey
and adventure is to seek out and
decide in favor of that which is
right, good and pleasing. This
hope, this anchor will hold in
the storms of life. Because of
this you and I cannot lose. True
hope is a win-win proposition!

USS Robert (G. Bradley (FFG 49)

five Maltese sea cadets April 7 while
underway in the Mediterranean for a

engagement to strengthen the maritime

cises involving watchstanding, crash
and salvage operations, and flight deck
operations during their three-day visit
aboard Robert G. Bradley.
"Having these young cadets and ser-
vice members aboard presents a unique


time safety and security, said Bradley
Commanding Officer Cmdr. Clinton A.
Carroll.
The cadets, ranging in age from 14-
18, are part of a volunteer program
sponsored by the United Kingdom that
teaches basic seamanship and prepares


cue trainees.
This is their first time aboard a U.S.
Navy ship and their first time interact-

"We hope to learn how the U.S.
Navy works and see and compare the
differences and similarities of our oper-

our American counterparts."
Robert G. Bradley, homeported in
Mayport, Fla. arrived in Valetta, Malta
April 9 for a port visit to continue TSC
engagements.


RGB Arrives In Valetta To


Strengthen Partnership


By MCSA
Whitfield M. Palmer
USS Robert G. Bradley
USS Robert G. Bradley (FFG
49) arrived in Valetta April 9 for
a theater security cooperation
mission to strengthen the mari-
time partnership between the
U.S. and Malta.
As the ship moored at the
pier, Maltese sea cadets proudly
hauled up the Maltese flag on
the port yardarm of the ship.
The flag of the host nation is
traditionally flown on the yard-
arm of U.S. ships during port
calls.
During the visit, the ship will


host workshops with Armed
Forces of Malta (AFM) ser-
vice members and Maltese sea
cadets including basic seaman-
ship, flight deck operations, and
watchstanding. The ship will
also conduct flight operations
and workshops on rigging for
towing operations.
Sailors will participate in a
community relations proj-
ect involving the cleanup of a
local beach. Additionally, crew
members will teach and then
play in a softball match with the
Maltese sea cadets.
Prior to arriving in Malta,
the ship welcomed aboard sea


cadets from a local volunteer
program sponsored by the
United Kingdom that trains high
school age students in basic sea-
manship as well as several AFM
service members.
The ship also conducted flight
operations with an AFM heli-
copter.
Robert G. Bradley, an Oliver
Hazard Perry-class frigate,
homeported in Mayport, Fla., is
on a regularly scheduled deploy-
ment to the 6th Fleet Area of
Responsibility in support of
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces
Africa. The ship has been on
deployment since Nov. 21.

Portsmouth Welcomes Crew Of USS The Sullivans


By Ensign Kari Weniger
USS The Sullivans Public .
Arleigh-Burke class guid-
ed missile destroyer USS
The Sullivans pulled into
Portsmouth, United Kingdom
on April 4.
The early morning fog and
rain did not dissuade the crew's
excitement and anticipation
as they prepared for their first
liberty port call in more than a
month.
With the majority of its


seven-month deployment com-
plete, The Sullivans traveled
up the English Channel and
entered the quaint harbor town
of Portsmouth. The rich history
and friendly waterside atmo-
sphere allowed for numerous
days of sightseeing and relax-
ation.
The biggest attractions in
Portsmouth are the perma-
nently preserved historical
ships. H.M.S. Victory, Lord
Nelson's flagship at the Battle


of Trafalgar, is displayed in dry
dock a quick five-minute walk
from the pier.
Also, H.M.S. Warrior is
moored at Portsmouth harbor.
Launched in 1860, Warrior was
the first "ironclad" warship and
boasts the title of being the larg-
est, fastest, and best-armed war-
ship in the world at the time of
her christening. With military
I.D., the crew toured the ships
and shopped in the gift shops at
no charge.


After exploring Portsmouth,
many Sailors traveled the
two hours to nearby London.
Starting the deployment with a
trip to Paris and ending with a
trip to London bookends a list
of eclectic port calls.
Including Dubai, Tokyo, and
Singapore, The Sullivans has
seen some of the world's most
famous cities, all in one deploy-
ment. The tradition and mod-
ernization of these incredible
cities will leave memories that


will last a lifetime.
Of course, the entire port was
not play. As The Sullivans pre-
pares to return to Mayport, the
crew ensured the ship would
be shining to match the shin-
ing smiles of the friends and
family waiting on the pier. The
hard work of the entire team
led to a complete preservation
and painting of all topside spac-
es. After leaving Portsmouth,

Proud Warriors Support NSAWC School


By Lt.j.g. Chris Hinson
HSL-42PAO
The Proud Warriors of HSL-
42 continued support of the
fleet in mid-March when it sent
a maintenance detachment and
two SH-60Bs to the Atlantic
Undersea Test and Evaluation
Center (AUTEC) to support the
Naval Strike and Air Warfare
Center (NSAWC) Rotary Wing
Weapon School (RWWS).
The Proud Warriors provided
two Hellfire missile capable air-
craft for NSAWC to use in their
evaluation of the most recent
Seahawk Weapons and Tactics
Instructor (SWTI) class.
This SWTI class was com-
posed of 32 pilots and aircrew-


men representing some of the
very best among the HSL, HS
and HSC communities.
The week and a half long
AUTEC period was the con-
clusion of an intense 12-week
course in which these students
were molded into fleet Seahawk
tactics instructors.
Once the students success-
fully complete the demanding
training, they will be sent to
their fleet squadrons and weap-
ons schools to train and stan-
dardize fleet tactics, techniques
and procedures.
The performance of the HSL-
42 maintenance detachment led
by Chief Aviation Machinist's
Mate Chris Burt and Chief


Aviation Electronics Technician
Edward Pfoser was second to
none.
NSAWC flew more than 30
hours between the two aircraft
and performed multiple actual
and simulated torpedo drops.
The maintenance team kept
the helicopters in the air and
continually went above and
beyond what was required of
them.
Their hard work paid big div-
idends and allowed NSAWC to
fully and thoroughly evaluate
their HSL students.

"I had a lot of fun. When I arrived half the
kids came to me and the other half ran away,"
said Ensign Rick Engel, John L. Hall's Combat
Information Center Officer and Morale, Welfare
and Recreation Officer. "I think [the children]
really enjoyed it."
The party was organized by John L. Hall's
Family Readiness Group, led by Janice Wish,
Candy Robinson and Anastasia Forshier, as well
as Chief Quartermaster (SW) Shane Dasher.
More than 30 John L. Hall kids showed up,
including the newest member 12-day-old Andrew
Patrick Strong, son of Navy Career Counselor 1st
Class (SW) Ty Strong.
"It was fun," said Strong. "It was a good time
for the ship and the families to get together and
enjoy each other's company."

USS De Wert Completes Light Off, Sea Trials

By Lt.j.g. Ashley Wyckoff
USSDe WertPAO
USS De Wert (FFG 45) left Mayport Basin for the first time in
nearly five months on April 3, after completing a successful Light
Off Assessment (LOA) earlier in the week.
The ship began a selected restricted availability (SRA) on Nov.
12 an extensive maintenance period during which new ship's ser-
vice diesel generators were installed, a force protection alteration
was completed, and living and dining areas were completely refur-
bished, among other alterations and upgrades.
De Wert began the grueling LOA, an inspection conducted by
expert engineers, on March 31, where the inspectors deemed the
ship "safe to train" and allowed De Wert Sailors to begin starting
the engineering equipment later that morning, a nearly unheard of
accomplishment.
Through Thursday, De Wert started and tested new equipment
and equipment that had been dormant for the duration of the SRA,
all in preparation for Friday's Sea Trials. To ensure a successful Sea
Trials, De Wert's officers and crew stayed on the ship overnight
Thursday in order to identify and work out last-minute concerns,
and to ensure the crew was well-rested for the next morning's
underway.
Everyone was full of anticipation as the brow was removed, the
whistle blew, and the Boatswain's Mate of the Watch passed the
word, "Underway!" over the announcement system. Anticipation
turned into confidence as the day passed and it became evident that
Sea Trials was a success.
De Wert Sailors knew that the last five months of hard work had -Photos courtesy of USS De Wert

Operation Safety Net Is


Chief of Naval Operations
(CNO) Adm. Gary Roughead
and Commandant of the Coast
Guard Adm. Thad Allen signed
a memorandum of agreement
(MOA) April 1 for the Safe
Harbor program.
The Safe Harbor program is
the Navy's lead organization for
coordinating the non-medical
care of wounded, ill and injured
Sailors, Coast Guardsmen and
their family members.
In the fall of 2008, the Coast
Guard approached Safe Harbor
to gain an understanding of
the non-medical care manage-
ment support provided to seri-
ously wounded, ill, and injured


Guard members receive medical
care at Navy military treatment
facilities, where Safe Harbor
non-medical care managers are
currently located.
The signing of the MOA
between the CNO and com-
mandant reflects their com-
mitment to providing the best
care possible for Sailors, Coast
Guardsmen and their families.
"I think that this really gets to
the essence of our services and
how we as services care for our
Sailors. Through the great work
of our people at Safe Harbor, we
have developed ways to address
those who are seriously wound-
ed, ill and injured in order to
better provide for them and


and honored thatL we can br iing
this dimension of the Navy and
the Coast Guard together in a
way that benefits our Sailors
and their families."
Through proactive leader-
ship, the Safe Harbor program
provides seriously wounded, ill
and injured service members a
lifetime of individually tailored
assistance designed to optimize
the success of their recovery,
rehabilitation and reintegration
activities and to give their fam-
ilies the support they need to
get through that sometimes life-
long process.

Story and photos by Petty Officer 1st Class

U.S. Coast Guard Seventh District
Guardians from Station Mayport, Fla., were out
in full force in the Jacksonville, Fla., area in late
March for Operation Safety Net.
Operation Safety Net's aim was to ensure that
the boating public of the First Coast were boat-
ing safely and responsibly. Coast Guard boarding
teams were on the lookout for lifejackets, sound
producing devices and other required safety gear.
Boaters are typically bringing their boats out
for the first time after winter during this time of
year. We want to make sure they have the proper
gear on board their vessel while they are out on
the water, said Petty Officer 2nd Class Chris
Taylor, a boarding officer participating in opera-
tion safety net.
Guardians patrolled the waters of the St. Johns
River, Intracoastal Waterway, and connecting
waterways to ensure boaters had the proper safety
gear on board.
In addition to checking for the required safety
gear on board vessels, Guardians also questioned


irst Coast
boaters on whether they had properly registered
emergency positioning indicating radio beacons,
VHF-marine radios or had filed a float plan
before leaving shore. The importance of having
some or all of these items were stressed to the
boaters they encountered.
Having one or all of these devices can greatly
increase the chances of survival in case of emer-
gency. These devices can buy you extra minutes
or hours when every second counts.
Having a VHF marine radio or E.P.I.R.B. can
help notify the Coast Guard where you are in case
of emergency, and a float plan can give search
and rescue coordinators a starting point in case
you go missing while out on the water.
In 2007 there were 685 boating fatalities nation-
wide, and the number one contributing factor of
boating fatalities in the same year was operator
inattention, according to the North American Safe
Boating Campaign website. More than 80 percent
of the 685 boating fatalities were not wearing a
lifejacket.

boating public of the First Coast were boating safely and responsibly.

Seventh District Public I" .
The Coast Guard Maritime
Law Enforcement train-
ing team was in Mayport,
Fla., March 9-13, to conduct
training for junior members
assigned to Coast Guard Station
Mayport, Coast Guard Sector
Jacksonville, Fla. and the Coast
Guard Cutter Shrike.
The MLE training team is
homeported in Portsmouth Va.,
and consists of four MLE train-
ing teams. The teams provide
MLE refresher training to 100
Coast Guard stations and cutters
each year in the Fifth, Seventh,
Eighth, and Ninth Districts that
conduct law enforcement mis-
sions.
The MLE training team pro-
vides realistic, performance-

Boarding officers and boarding
team members have the oppor-
tunity to practice and sharpen
their law enforcement skills
through role-playing and facili-
tation, and this helps capture the
best methods to be shared Coast
Guard wide. For example, Coast
Guard Auxiliary vessels are
used to conduct mock boarding
scenarios.

About The Kids?, FFSC
Children who witness fam-
ily violence are often forgot-
ten as the unintended victims.
A wide range of child adjust-
ment problems has been found
to be associated with exposure
to domestic violence. Parent's
need to see and understand the
effects of domestic violence
on children as encompassing
behavior, emotion, development
and socialization. Parents need
to understand that there is an
intergenerational cycle of vio-
lence and they may be creat-
ing a legacy for their child of
learned violent behavior. The
purpose of this program is not
to shame parents for events
that have already happen, but
to instill hope that things can
change. The knowledge that the
violence, which many parents
incorrectly believe is unseen
by their children, is negative-
ly impacting their children's
growth and development and
may provide an additional moti-
vator for ending the violence
and seeking intervention.

Colonoscopy Detects Senior Chief's


Cancer, 'Improves Chances For Survival'


By Marsha Childs
NHJ Marketing Coordinator
On the day before he was
scheduled to start chemother-
apy, Senior Chief Hospital
Corpsman (FMF/AW) Jonathan
"Ace" Acedera, 48, seemed
fragile as he reflected on his
recent diagnosis of colon can-
cer. Only a few months earlier
he was making plans for retire-
ment, exploring promising job
opportunities and entertaining
the idea of learning to surf when
his life took an unexpected turn.
Ace was scheduled to retire
in December 2008 after 26
years of service. It was dur-
ing a Veterans Administration
(VA) disability physical in July
2008 when Dr. Antonia Silva-
Hale discovered a 2006 medical
record entry noting what Ace
thought he saw: blood in his
stool.
In 2006, the doctor told Ace
that if there was indeed blood
in his stool, it must have been
there for years and, if cancer
related, he should be dying or
already dead. To be on the safe
side, the physician ordered a
colonoscopy. This study exam-
ines the large colon and small
bowel using a fiber optic cam-
era on a flexible tube passed
through the anus while the
patient is sedated.
But Ace never followed up
since he was still uncertain
about the presence of blood.
And if there was, he reasoned,
it was probably due to irritat-
ed hemorrhoids. His decision
was made in part due to his
very demanding job. "I was

Hospital Corpsman Jonathan 'Ace" Acedera and his wife, Margie,
after confirming the presence of colon cancer following Ace's colo-


noscopy.
so busy," he recalled. Hence,
the colonoscopy was never per-
formed.
The VA physician urged
Ace to schedule the colonos-
copy he never had in 2006,
although there was no family
history of colon cancer, a fac-
tor that increases the risk for
the disease. "It was the way
she said it that made me give
it a lot of serious thought, and
I also wanted to put closure on
the issue," he said.
In November 2008, Naval
Hospital Jacksonville gastro-
enterologist Lt. Cmdr. John
Bassett performed the screen-
ing and removed a suspicious
lesion. "I expected it to be neg-
ative," Ace said. "I don't drink,


I don't smoke, I exercise, and
I pride myself on being very
healthy." But two days later,
Bassett called with the troubling
pathology results.
There are rare events in our
lives that are so significant that
you never forget where you
were or what you were doing.
For Ace, this was that occasion.
"So doc, what you're telling
me is I have cancer?" he asked.
Bassett confirmed his worst
fears; the lesion was cancerous.
He explained, "The key now
will be to determine if the can-
cer has spread. While the diag-
nosis is serious and potentially
life-threatening, now we can get
you the care you need."
The diagnosis was adeno-

Uniform Registration Process

To Promote Seamless Transition


By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service
The best way to ensure ser-
vicemembers transition seam-
lessly from the Defense
Department to the Department
of Veterans Affairs when they
leave the military is to start
the process at the swearing-
in ceremony, Veterans Affairs
Secretary Eric K. Shinseki told
American Forces Press Service.
"Seamless transition really
has to begin when that ser-
vicemember is still serving,
puts on the uniform, raises a
right hand and takes the oath
of allegiance," said Shinseki,
who spent 38 years in uniform
before retiring in 2003 as Army
chief of staff. "We need to begin
the transition then."
Shinseki said he's had sev-
eral conversations with Defense
Secretary Robert M. Gates about
ways to continue improving the
transition process between the
two departments.
One concept, called "uniform
registration," would enroll ser-
vicemembers automatically in a
single Defense-VA management
system when they join the mili-
tary. As envisioned, the system
would have two components:
one for personnel files and
another for medical files.
Shinseki explained the ben-
efits of uniform registration last
month during a Senate Veterans
Affairs Committee hearing.
"Uniform registration will
push both of us, both the VA
and the [Defense Department],


to create a single, electronic
record that would govern how
we acknowledge, identify, track
and manage each of our cli-
ents," he said.
"That way, we could begin
to track them throughout the
course of their service in uni-
form whether it's two years,
four years, 10 years, 30 years,"
he told American Forces Press
Service.
"And when the change in
their status occurs and they take
the uniform off and return to
civilian life, the transition has
already been done," he contin-
ued. "They are already a mem-
ber of our department, we know
who they are, and we have been
watching their development."
The initiative, he said, would
result in better, faster, more con-
sistent management decisions,
with less chance of lost files
or destroyed claims and fewer
backlogs in processing claims.
Servicemembers leaving the
military would come to VA as
known entities, and their entitle-
ments would be clear, Shinseki
said.
Meanwhile, VA could bet-
ter project veterans' needs.
Shinseki told the Senate com-
mittee both VA and the Defense
Department "are in agreement
about the goodness of such a
system and have people work-
ing toward making this a real-
ity."
Uniform registration is real-
ly just an extension of other
VA-administered programs


that cover those in uniform,
Shinseki said. These include
Servicemembers' Group Life
Insurance, educational loans
and guaranteed home loans.
"So this idea that your ben-
efits begin when you take off
the uniform is misleading," he
said. "Those benefits are there
in those categories from the
time they begin serving."
The Defense and Veterans
Affairs departments have been
working diligently to eliminate
gaps as servicemembers par-
ticularly wounded warriors -
transition from military to civil-
ian life.
Congressional panels, blue-
ribbon commissions and in-
house investigations all have
pointed to the need for the two
departments to improve their
coordination and cooperation to
better serve transitioning troops.
Shinseki told the Senate panel
progress being made will help
ensure better care and support
for veterans.
"Through a cooperative
effort, we seek to improve the
delivery of benefits and assure
the availability of medical data
to support the care of patients
shared by VA and [the Defense
Department]," he wrote in his
written testimony. "This will
enhance our ability to provide
world-class care to veterans,
active-duty servicemembers
receiving care from both health-
care systems, and our wounded
warriors returning from Iraq and
Afghanistan."


carcinoma, a cancer known to
be invasive, spreading to other
parts of the body.
Additional radiological stud-
ies performed at the Naval
Hospital and repeated at the
University of Florida and
Shands, Jacksonville showed
no evidence of the disease in
the liver, lungs and bone. The
colonoscopy and additional test-
ing revealed the disease had not
spread throughout his body.
Ace was referred to Dr. Ziad
Awad, a seasoned colorectal sur-
geon at Shands for laparoscopic
surgery on Dec. 17. Entering
through a small incision, Awad
found no visible evidence that
the cancer had spread outside
the bowel. Further studies were
done to determine the exact
location of the cancer and how
deep it went into the surround-
ing tissue.
After conferring with col-
leagues at Shands and
Columbia, Awad recommended
they proceed with the bowel
resection, a procedure to remove
a portion of the bowel.
Ace recalled thinking, "If
they took out a segment of my
large intestine and it had cancer,
I would be glad it was taken
out. If they took it out and it
was clean, I would have peace
of mind."
The procedure was resched-


uled for Feb. 11 where a seg-
ment of the rectum and sigmoid
intestine was removed. In all,
17 lymph nodes were sampled:
15 came back negative and
two positive for cancer. Awad
told Ace he was shocked how
aggressive his cancer was and
he had never seen anything it
like before.
On March 24, Ace underwent
the first of many chemotherapy
sessions that include both oral
medication and intravenous
infusion.
He said, "I try not to think
about the pain and side effects
of the intravenous therapy,
which I need every 21 days for
six months."
His chemotherapist explained
his survival rate would improve
from 65 percent without che-
motherapy to 85 percent with
the treatment. Chemotherapy
affects patients differently, but
many experience nausea, loss
of appetite and weight, diarrhea,
vomiting and hair loss. They
are a small price to pay for
another chance at life.
The surgery left Ace weak
with little appetite, but the pain
lessened every day. With the
loving support of his wife of 23
years, Margie, and his two sons
Jordan, 19, and Paolo, 21, Ace
is "going to live it one day at a
time."


He credits Bassett and his
team for giving him the hope
of living another 30 years. He
also credits Silva-Hale who
convinced him to have that
colonoscopy before retirement,
which he now knows probably
saved his life.
Ace is optimistic his medical
journey will help others. Colon
cancer is largely a preventable
disease with early detection.
It remains, however, the sec-
ond leading cause of all can-
cer-related deaths in the United
States and may be caused by
environmental or dietary factors
and genetic predisposition.
The risk significantly increas-
es for adults age 50 and older.
Because colon cancer devel-
ops from slow growing pol-
yps with no symptoms until it
is advanced or there is a large
tumor present, early detection
and intervention can improve
survival rates up to 90 percent.
The American Academy of
Family Physicians recommends
periodic clinical preventive
screenings based on age, gen-
der and medical condition or as
recommended by a health care
provider, especially if there is
a family history for conditions
such as colon cancer. To learn
