New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 10, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 2 0 Herakj-Zeitunq O Wednesday, April IO, 1996 CS makes a difference in woman’s fight against cancer the HeraW-Zeitung One Saturday monung last month, only dtays after her 39th birthday, local resident Joy Cokson Hill faced what bauld have been a tragedy of a hfc-tithe. “My husband and I were just talking rn our brthroam. I hadn't done a-breast sdf-exammarion for months, bul somehow I found foe lump. My hand just landed in foe right place.’' Fearing foe worst, HUI immediately made rn appointment with her doctor the following Monday, winch began a nine-day search for cancer. “It was foe longest nine days of my hie.” ; 3iiH said foe lump was so small foe doctor was unable to feel it “But he was very thorough, even though Tm 90 young." A mammogram also foiled id detect Ok lump. But her doctor did not stop there. HOI was then seat to see in oncologist in Austin who also was unable to find foe lump in her breast Finally, foe tiny lump showed up on a sonogram, followed by a needle biopsy at McKenna Hospital, three days fofcr. “I was at a Bible study fellowship and called my husband Rocky to find ant what foe results were. They told me Ire was at home waiting for me. That's Sfoen I knew foe test was positive,” JHill said tearfully. “As I walked ^through the door at home, Rodey gave line the news, and we just held each pother” ! Hill’s husband Rodey had faced a •similar situation some 20 years ago, twhen his father died a painful death thorn lung cancer, just days before foe Joy, Rocky and < couple married. “That was hard for him,” HSI said “Fust Ins father and now bks woe. I rant ne owsm me san dung bus graqg lo lappen lo tnt And foen there's cur daughter. Onsri-na. she's ouhr 14 years cid” The couple food moan decisions from tho day ferw»d*tk Bud came to my home dm day ami me ray opnonSh. esplaumg eadk one. He's also a wonderfal Oatstsaa man." Bul it was the ceufk's sttcng faith md ssp-port of endh ofaer Sat kept than according to Hi. “I was actually at peace, because of ray faith in Jesus Christ I knew a was all part of God s plan.” True to las name. she sax! her husband was a “rock.” “Rocky was unbelievably strong and supportive. He was by my side every step of foe way. He even took notes through each doctor's examination, and asked questions when I wasn’t able to.” After much prayer, Hill said, she finally chose to go forward with a lumpectomy and radiation. “There’s so many different opinions. Some people advise a mastectomy to completely get rid of the breast” But she found her cure rate to be foe same using either option. “Some people said I would be vain if I kept the breast But it was the best option far me.” Now, with a two-and-a-half inch scar, very Htrie pain. and 25 radiation treatments to go. Hill says she made the right choke. “They took out foe lump and 21 lymph nodes. Each node was free of cancer” During foe almost two-week period of uncertainty. Hill said foe was most touched by foe community support in New Braunfels. She said women’s prayer groups, old and new friends, and echos, prayed for her recovery. “People I fodn't even know were praying for me.” Then. foe night before her surgery, a female cancer surviver called ai just foe right moment “I was fight-mg im fear all of a sudden, she called me ok of foe blue. It was such a bless-Wg" After foe surgers . Hill was met by American Cancer Society volunteers who offered encouragement and education through their “Reach to Recovery” program about what she could now expect “Her name was Mrs. Mil-be Mader. She was very encouraging md upbeat She showed me exercises to do with my aim, so I wouldn’t lose foe use of my aim.” Hill said the radiation treatment was also described as painless. “The X-rays are concentrated only on foe affected area for about a minute and a half.each day, five days a week. Hurt’s it” Now, with most of the uncertainty behind her, Hill hopes to offer foe same encouragement to other cancer survivors. “I hope I can do foe same for someone else, some day. I want people to know there’s hope. They need to seek advise and get opinions. Know all of your options before you make a decision. But most of all, trust in God to see you through.” The ACS Reach to Recovery program is one of five local programs offered to cancer survivors and their families. “Road to Recovery” offers transportation to cancer patients. “Look Good Feel Better” provides makeovers. “Cancer Support Dialogue” offers support through monthly meetings. “Camp Discovery” gives the younger survivors a chance for summer activity tailored to their individual abilities. The upcoming Starlight Gala, “A Night in Casablanca,” provides the rally funding for these programs. Volunteers encourage all Comal County residents to purchase rate or more of only 400 tickets available for the June 15 event Those dollars make a difference to local residents Uke Joy, Rocky and Christina Hill — and someone you know. Hill said, “Easter offers new life for me and my family this year. Ute American Cancer Society made my road a lot easier.” I in rn -;v .:., v : ■ - I /'.; - tbs ii iii' 1 llfli mr'' * > m i •' rfi yf X 1 w I Mn’** ygs&t ■HjHI Comal Healthcare Foundation Board members receive $10,000 donation from New Braunfels Jaycees.
