The Fight Against Cancer

Rourke O’Brien introduced his guest, Tami Agassi, who has recently been appointed to a fundraising position with the Marcia Rivkin Ovarian Cancer Institute in Seattle. Tami, herself a cancer survivor, described the battle she went through to beat the disease. She was formerly Executive Director of the Gary Payton Foundation and was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 30.

“My principal activity has been fundraising. I left the Payton Foundation to become Director of Business Development at Three months into this new job, I found a lump in my breast. There was no family history for breast cancer. I had a mammogram to be safe, followed by an ultrasound. The diagnosis was ‘98% benign.’ I went for a second opinion and was told I should elect to ’take it out that week.’  In other words, if you get a lump, pay attention to it.” MORE

Car Goes to Olive Crest
From Brian Evison

The BBRC 2002 Raffle officially closed last Saturday, November 30, when the donation of the Volkswagen Jetta was made to Olive Crest by Raffle winner CR Anderegg. Mr. Anderegg elected to donate the car to a charitable organization, and following rules established by the Washington State Gambling Commission, he selected Olive Crest, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse, treating the victims of child abuse, and preserving families through their programs.

The keys were turned over to Olive Crest Director George Chudnofsky at Chaplain’s Volkswagen, with the Anderegg Family in attendance. A big thank you to CR Anderegg, who epitomizes the Rotary spirit.

ChiroFeed 2002

Dr. Peter Stadelman, representing the Chiropractors of the Eastside, announced the annual Holiday “Share the Health” Party. Rotarians are invited to the party this coming Friday, December 13, at the Stadelman Chiropractic Health Center, in the Pinnacle Bell Center, 10822 NE 2nd Place, Bellevue. The party is from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Every holiday season, local doctors and volunteers sponsor a day to collect donations of food, clothing, and health care to those needy families in the area. The goal is to serve over 500 people with a hot meal, toys, clothing, and blankets. Dr. Stadelman invites Rotarians to join in this worthy cause by attending his party Friday afternoon. “The need is special for warm blankets. If you could help, we’d really appreciate it!” In addition to refreshments, the Stadelman Center will offer a free 10-15 minute seated chair massage.

The highly successful BBRC Giving Tree project winds down this Friday when gifts are to be brought to the meeting. Earlier, members plucked ornaments off the brightly decorated tree with requests for presents for youngsters served by Hopelink and the Lake Heights YMCA. Chairman Phil Salvatori said “there were 125 ornaments to begin our project and we expect them all to be gone and turned into presents for these needy kids.”

The first 75 ornaments are destined for Hopelink, with a request that the present not be wrapped. For the 50 gifts going to the YMCA, these gifts are to be wrapped. Please attach your ornament to the gift.

Thought for the Week

From Orison Swett Marden: "There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow."


Dr. Pierce Scranton will discuss how a corporate partnership has helped children disabled by landmines in Vietnam to recover and lead productive lives. Meeting begins at 7:00 a.m. with the famous Glendale buffet breakfast, followed by the weekly shenanigans of the BBRC schticks and other recognitions, and at 8:00 a.m., the program. Bring a guest; bring a potential member and enjoy Rotary at its best! Glendale Country Club, Friday at 7:00 a.m.

"I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."

State Department Spokesman
