> I feel it is time to update you on my health status. A few members of the board have known prior to our state convention that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I now have all the facts about what will be happening to me over the next 7 months or so.  I will be undergoing both chemotherapy and radiation therapy to sterilize the cancer. During this time I will still serve you as your president, however if I’m feeling ill or to weak rest assured you will not be alone. Your first vice president Phil Magalnick and your second vice president Beth Rival will be there for you. They will help with questions and concerns any of you might have. Hopefully I will be well enough to attend the national convention.
