i m CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, October 10 - Thursday, October 12, 2006 - 27 New campaign aimed at preventing cervical cancer Lt. Gov. John Carney and health professionals kicked off the Ending Cervical Cancer in Our Lifetime campaign Thursday, Oct. 5, in Wilmington. Delaware is one of 10 states piloting the pro- gram. The goal of the program is to educate women on the direct connection between the human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervi- cal cancer. HPV causes 99.7 per- cent of all cervical cancer cases. "This is one of those rare instances when we can eliminate a terrible disease," said Carney, who also chairs the Delaware Health Care Commission and serves on the Delaware Cancer Consortium. "We know that this disease is preventable. We need to make sure every woman knows that." The initiative uses a simple brochure and a bracelet kit to help women make the connec- tion between HPV and cervical cancer. The brochure details preven- tion, screening and new technologies, including vaccines that can help women avoid HPV and cervical cancer. The bracelet, which is meant to be put together by women, is symbolic of making the connec- tion and also serves as a distraction for some who might find the subject matter uncom- fortable. The brochures and bracelet kits will be distributed with the help of the Medical CARNEY Society of Delaware, the Federal Qualified Health Centers in Delaware and Delaware State Service Centers. According to the National Women's Health Resource Center, while the death rate from cervical cancer in the United States has decreased, the rate of invasive cervical cancer has risen. It's an avoidable increase, consid- ering more than half the women who now develop cervical cancer have either rarely or never had a Pap test. Diabetes walk set for Oct. 14 in Lewes The American Diabetes Association (ADA) will host its ninth annual Americans Walk for Diabetes Saturday, Oct. 14, at Cape Henlopen State Park. Check-in time is 8:30 a.m., at the start/finish location at the fishing pier. The walk gets started at 10 a.m., after a 9 a,m. team photo session, an aerobic warmup at 9:30 a.m. and a ribbon cutting to start the event. The walk course is designed around the 3.5-mile bike-pedes- trian trail and the lookout tower will serve as a rest stop. Breakfast and lunch will be pro- vided by SuperFresh and Papa John's Pizza. The national walk sponsor is Equal sweetener; local sponsors also include Apple Discount Drugs, Pepsi of Delmarva, Subway, Peninsula Bank, Hebron Savings Bank, Bayhealth Medical, Fuddruckers, WBOC-16, 96 Rock and Clear Channel Outdoors. Funds raised will assist the ADA in its mission to prevent and find a cure for diabetes and to improve the lives of all those affected by the disease. Residents and businesses who wish to make a donation can call Carlos Mir, market manager, at 410-543-4530, Ext. 2121. For more information, visit www.dia- betes.org.
