During the month of September the Johnson Creek Watershed Council is hosting the Springwater Cycle Stroll, a benefit event where particpants raise money for the miles they travel on the Springwater Trail throughout the month. Participants ride their bikes, walk, run, jog or skateboard along the Springwater Corridor Trail, logging their miles and collecting pledges from family and friends. Participants log miles at any time during the month, and at their own pace. Pledges can be per-mile or a flat donation. There will be friendly competition along the way with prizes for most miles biked, most miles run, most miles walked, and most money raised. The donations raised through this event will support the Council's restoration, education and outreach programs.

The Springwater Corridor Trail parallels Johnson Creek for much of its length. This event is also an opportunity to feature some of metropolitan Portland's history and little-known natural treasures along the creek.

Join the Springwater Cycle Stroll and raise money for watershed restoration and protection while enjoying the Springwater Trail along Johnson Creek! Register now at www.jcwc.org or by calling (503) 652-7477.

Patients' needs often go unmet, and caregivers try to figure out how to help after treatment is done.

by Joe Rojas-Burke, The Oregonian (12/10/2008)
Read the source story here.

The first sign of trouble came when Gail Anderson's voice began to fail.

"There was no way I could yell. My husband liked that," she said. But a biopsy confirmed what she suspected and feared. She had throat cancer. The only option for survival was a harrowing surgical procedure to remove the tumor -- and her voice box.

"I was in sheer panic for three weeks," Anderson said. But the worst was yet to come.
