Ramon Chapa Sr. was given the Texas Lutheran University Distinguished Service Award.
As I sit in my hospital room and look around, I ain touched by the continued support I have received from family, friends, acquaintances and even people I previously did not know. I have met so many people during my years of community service. God s purpose for my life was to serve. I lay here thinking about the first time I began community service work when I was 12. I was living in bagle Pass, and belonged to the Catholic community. We were having a Folklorico Dance benefit to earn funds to build a church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
Years later and many fundraisers later, I have given my time, talents and efforts to a variety of organizations and individuals never expecting to receive anything in return. However, the unfortunate findings of leukemia has given me an opportunity to experience a flood of support I never imagined possible.
I want to thank you for your love and support. The cards, calls, blood drive, time and, most especially, prayers are far greater than anything I expected. I want to extend my sincerest gratitude to Doug Toney for the article printed
on Sunday Aug. 31 , and the chamber of commerce and the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center for the Blood Drive held in my honor during the Business Trade Show Wednesday, Sept. IO.
And finally, I would like to express a very personal thank you to my brother, Frank Chapa; my sisters, Amalia Martinez, Angelita Velasquez, Lucia Ayala, Arjelia Chapa and Lourdes Gonzales; and their families for the time, willingness, and support in an effort to test for the stem cell match. bach and every one of you has given me the greatest honor of expressing your concern and care during this trying time.
I want to leave you with one last wish: My wish is that each of you understand the importance of living each day to the f ullest and acknowledge each of God s blessings from the smallest wildflower to the people you pass each day, keep smiling and appreciate each blessing God has given you. liven in our most trying times I ie does smile upon us.
On behalf of my family and myself, I humbly thank you! God bless each of you!
With I leartfelt Thanks,
Ramon R. Chapa Sr.

Main Street awards

Bulverde Area Republican Women member Betty Flowers spoke at the October general meeting on breast cancer.
Flowers, a Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation spoke-woman, attributed her desire to inform and educate the public on breast cancer awareness to her own personal struggle with the disease. She begun her speech by saying that her first reaction when diagnosed was, “Why me?” and went on to comment about her deepest fears,. "Would my husband still love me?, Will I continue to do what I enjoy?”
She said. “I had to dig deep into my core to discover who I really am.” She also said she came from, “a no-risk family” and was, “not a smoker or a drinker and from an Asian family.” Asians have the lowest risk of breast cancer.
Statistics show 200,000 women between 40 and 59 are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and 40,(KH) women die from breast cancer each year.
Breast cancer is most common among black women with the odds for white women being I in eight. Black women
also have the highest death rate. Jewish women, I in 40, carry the gene that is susceptible to breast cancer, and Hispanic women are the least likely to have breast cancer but most likely to die after diagnosed. "Hie chances of survival are greatest when breast cancer is caught in the early stage.
Recommendations for early detection are:* I) self exaini-nation, 2) annual doctor’s examination and 3) mammogram.
Flowers is one of two million women who have survived breast cancer.
Ty’s pink bears named “Cure” with a birthdate of October 2003 are available through BAR-VV. I Tofus earned will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
