Night Of Comedy To Support Medical Battles Of Local Child

By Cheryl Conway
orn with a rare medical condition, a seven year old
girl of Cedar Grove recently underwent a complex
surgery and now the community can support the familys ongoing medical expenses by taking some time to laugh.
Amazing Gracie: A Comedy Catalyst Event is set for
Sun., Dec. 13, at 7 p.m., at Tierneys Tavern in Montclair.
Hosted by the R.E.A.L.I.S.E. group of Cedar Grove and Four
Fourteen Entertainment, the night of comedy hopes to provide financial support to the Reijers family for continued
medical expenses.
Gracie, a first grader at P.G. Chambers School in Cedar
Knolls, is an amazing seven year old girl who was born with
a rare condition VACTERL Association and Pulmonary Vein
Stenosis. VACTERL stands for vertebral defects, anal atresia,
cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal anomalies,
and limb abnormalities. VACTERL association occurs in one
in 10,000 to 40,000 newborns.
Little Gracie has required many surgeries in her life time
so far. During the past seven years, among many other medical issues, Gracie has had numerous catheterizations, two
open heart surgeries before she was two years old and a

stroke.
She has had a lot of medical issues, says Dina Reijers,
Gracies mom. She was born with defects. The only thing I
knew when I was pregnant with her was she had a heart defect.
Gracie was born with multiple defects such as one kidney;
a shortened esophagus requiring her to eat with a feeding
tube; and without an anal hole requiring a colostomy bag.
Its a fluke, says Reijers still trying to make sense of it
all. It can happen between four and six weeks of pregnancy.
On Sept. 15, Gracie had a 13-hour complex surgery, at
Morgan Stanley Childrens Hospital at New York Presbyterian, to improve the functioning of many of her organs. Gracie experienced some complications from the surgery
requiring her to be incubated in critical care for an unexpected 15 days, explains Reijers. She is home now recovering
and her mom is hopeful her little girl will get clearance to return to school in December.
Nothing surprises me with Gracie, says Reijers. Three
years ago her daughter faced a brain abscess that caused her
to have seizures. Gracie has done this since the day she was
born. Its just like shes a strong little cookie.
Under a great amount of emotional and financial strain,
the R.E.A.L.I.S.E. comedy benefit will provide the Reijers
family with financial support to assist with a portion of their
medical bills.
Gracie has been going through surgeries her whole life,
explains Suzanne Trupia, spokesperson for R.E.A.L.I.S.E.
and fundraiser organizer. The Reijers family has been looking forward to this particular surgery since she was a baby.
Due to several medical conditions (stroke, heart surgeries and
more) this surgery has been postponed for years. The emotional and financial strain involved with parenting a child like

Gracie is immense. The R.E.A.L.I.S.E. group wanted to support the family in some way.
The Reijers are most appreciative of the communitys support.
I think its wonderful; its a great thing, says Reijers.
While she says her family has health insurance, they are required to meet a $4,000 deductible every year before being
covered in network.
For the past seven years, its $4,000, $4,000, $4,000it
adds up. We tap out by February or March. On top of the
medical bills, are the constant medical supplies needed to
take care of Gracie such as diapers and colostomy bags. To
complicate things even more, her husband, Dennis Reijers,
went on family leave without pay to take care of Gracie,
while she supports the family working as a customer service
manager.
Reijers is also grateful that The Cedar Grove School district also pays a private nurse to accompany Gracie to school

Young Philanthropist Continues Campaign For Crossing Guards

By J. L. Shively
ustin Frank, a 13-year old boy at H.
B. Whitehorne Middle School, is
continuing the campaign he began in
September 2014 named, Caring For OthersJust Feels Good.
As a Boy Scout and a self-professed outgoing individual who is interested in both
acting and helping others it is no surprise that
Austin has begun such a revolution in his
own community.
Austins campaign began with a crossing
guard on Lanning Road, Frank Meletti, who
he had known for a few years. Austins work
with Meletti initiated after Meletti suffered a
heart attack on the job, the second heart attack in his life.
Meletti was already well known in the
school community from his work as a crossing guard. He was known to keep golden
dollars in his pockets for when children lost
a tooth. They used to say I worked for the
tooth fairy, Meletti recalls.
Meletti returned home from the hospital
with only 25 percent of his heart working. It
was clear to Austin and his father that Meletti
needed help.

Verona, not just Meletti. Frank came up with


the idea to buy pens, with the name of
Austins campaign on them, to set up for sale
at local business. These unique pens have a
stylus to use on smart phones at the tip of
their cap and also contain a small flashlight
at the point. Austin was able to sell these
pens at $10 each to help raise money for

warm clothing. Many local businesses


stepped forward to help sell the pens. One
business alone, J.T. Barbershop, donated
$500 to the cause just between himself and
all the pens he sold, Frank said.
With some guidance from his father,
Austin also reached out to larger companies,

Franks had a real impact on the town,


Robert Frank, Austins father, explains. The
Franks were able to get the community to
help Meletti.
Its unbelievable what these mothers did
for me, Meletti recalls. For a year one of
them would make me a meal and bring it
over. Cub Scout Pack 32 also initiated an
effort to help with yard work at Melettis
house, cleaning up the yard and fixing
fences.
During Austins time with Meletti, the
longtime crossing guard spoke of times in the
winter when it was so frigid outside Meletti
had nearly gotten frostbite.
I thought this was crazy, Austin says.
This might be happening to other crossing
guards too. That was the inception of his
future volunteer effort.
Austin recognized a need in his community and he sought a way to fix it.
In Verona [the crossing guards] just get
a white vest and a hat and their stop sign,
Austin explains, they do not receive any
warm clothing for the winter.
Austin approached his father with his desire to help all of the crossing guards in

looking for possible warm clothing donations. The company
Burton, a snowboard and clothing supplier, donated around
$2,000 worth of hats and gloves for the crossing guards in
Verona. This donation alone from Burton contained enough
hats and gloves from their surplus stock for every crossing
guard in the town.
It was very generous of them, Austin explains as he recounts the other companies he has reached out to for help,
such as Under Armour.
The next objective for Austins campaign is to acquire
warm jackets for the crossing guards. So far, they have raised
$3,000 but will require a total of $5,000 before they have
enough for approximately 30 warm jackets. Young Austins
philanthropy has even resulted in his father becoming a member of the Verona Lions Club.
They didnt even have to recruit me, Frank explains of
his recent commitment to the tight knit group of community
volunteers. The Lions Club is a local non-profit group dedicated to helping the residents of Verona and Cedar Grove.
The Lions Club has become Austins sponsor, since he
needed a non-profit group to act as a backer. To gain this
union, Austin had to approach the Lions Club and present his
project to the members. After hearing of Austins commitment, the Lions agreed to back his project.
On Oct. 27, the Lions Club chose Austin as their Presidential Award recipient and donated $500 to support his
campaign.

Young Philanthropist...

Frank Ricciardi, a member of the Verona Lions club explained the clubs decision for backing Austin because his
behavior is something that needs to be positively reinforced. The club will be involved by helping to keep track
of the funds being raised as well as promoting his cause.
A lot of people dont realize that a lot of the crossing
guards are on a limited income, Meletti explains and many
of the crossing guards that help children get to and from
school safely each day cannot afford the warm clothing that
is needed to be out in the weather.
It is evident that Austins work has not gone unnoticed.
Upon giving the crossing guards the first donation of warm
hats and gloves, Austin recalls all of the positive thank you
letters he received from the 30 plus men and women he had
helped.
Im so impressed, Meletti says. Where in todays
world can you find a fine boy like that who is concerned
about other people? Youve got the gift of compassion,
Meletti tells Austin, its going to take you far in life.
Although unsure what his future career will be, it is apparent that young Austin is headed for great things. Certainly
Verona residents will agree with Melettis closing words, the
best thing I did in my life was move to Verona.
For more information about the campaign Caring For
OthersJust Feels Good or to help with donations contact
Robert Frank at 973-470-8333 or email VeronaCaringForOthers@verizon.net.

ings to consider when hosting for the holidays

oliday hosts have a lot on their plates. The work of


holiday hosting does not begin when the first guest
arrives. It starts weeks before, when homeowners
begin preparing their homes for overnight guests.
Because the holiday season can be so busy, its easy for
hosts to overlook certain things as the day their first guests
are set to arrive draws nearer. But the following are a few
things hosts should consider in the weeks before their
guests show up.

Fully Insured
Free Estimates

Accommodations
Its hard to overlook accommodations when hosting for
the holidays, but its best to inspect linens and other items that
might go largely unused throughout much of the year. Check
foldout couches or air mattresses a few weeks before your
guests are slated to arrive. This gives you ample time to address any issues and also allows you to comparison shop and
find great deals on any items you need to replace. Hosts who
are parents to young children may want to discuss sleeping
arrangements before guests arrive if kids will be asked to
sleep in different beds. Kids might embrace the change, while
others might be less enthusiastic. If younger cousins will be
staying over, let kids choose their new roommates, which
might make them more excited about sharing rooms with their
guests. Explaining the situation in advance gives youngsters
time to ready themselves for their temporary move.

Diets
Ask guests before they arrive if they have any particular
food allergies or items they need to avoid because of any medications they might be taking. This is especially important for
youngsters, who may forget to avoid homemade cookies with
nuts despite having nut allergies. By asking in advance if your
guests have any food allergies or foods and ingredients they
must avoid, you will know to avoid serving particular dishes
so no one accidentally eats foods that might make them sick

and you can prepare alternative dishes for people who must
avoid certain foods.

Activities
If guests will be staying for several nights, explore a few
local activities so everyone can get out of the house for a night
or two. Time spent with family is one of the best parts of the
holiday season, but spending all of that time inside in cramped
quarters can grow uncomfortable over time. Plan a family
night or two out that everyone can enjoy.

Pets
When hosting for the holidays, let your guests know if you
have any pets. Some people have dog and cat allergies, and
those allergies may make it difficult for them to enjoy their
stay. Others allergies might be so severe that they have to
find alternative lodging. Let guests know about your pets
when you invite them to stay at your house so no one is surprised at the last minute. In addition, let guests know if they
can bring their own pets along toyour house.
Hosting for the holidays is a great way to welcome loved
ones into your home. Considering and discussing a few factors before your guests arrive can ensure everyone enjoys
their stay.

Traditions behind holiday gifts


holidays into what they are today.

he holiday season is a time to celebrate with


friends and family. Several holidays are celebrated in this relatively short time period, making
this one of the most festive times of the year.
Many holiday celebrations focus on the exchange of
presents, which may be exchanged with relatives,
friends and even coworkers. But are you familiar with
the origins of exchanging gifts?
Gift exchanges trace their origins to both religious and
secular traditions, each of which has helped shape the

Christmas
People exchange gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas
Day all over the world. For Christians, Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe
was a gift from the Creator.
From a religious standpoint, gifting others around
Christmastime can be traced back to the stories of the
Three Kings (also referred to as the Three Wise
Men) who visited Jesus after his birth. Frankincense,
a fragrance involved in worship; gold; and myrrh, an
incense associated with funerals, was presented. These
gifts symbolized worship in Christ, that He would be
the King of Kings, and that suffering and death would
come to Him.
Another giver of gifts is part of many Christmas celebrations. St. Nicholas, a fourth century saint, is a
beloved figure across the globe who has a reputation
for giving gifts in secret and helping the needy. The
figure of Santa Claus is based on St. Nicholas, and
the blending of the two has evolved as history has
mixed with folklore and personal traditions.
Hanukkah
Hanukkah is an eight-day Jewish celebration that commemorates the rededication of the Temple in
Jerusalem. The word hanukkah actually means
dedication in Hebrew.

20% off
with this coupon

The Jews, including Judah Maccabee, helped drive the


Syrians out of Jerusalem. In one of Judaisms most
central texts, Maccabee and others witnessed a miracle
at the temple. Even though there was only enough oil
to keep a menorahs candles burning for one day, the
flames continued for eight nights.
Traditionally, gelt, or money, was given as a
Hanukkah gift. Many Hanukkah gift givers aim to
give gifts that are thoughtful and sweet. Money is not
exchanged as much today, with other gifts taking its
place.

Kwanzaa
Kwanzaa is an American holiday that pays homage to
traditions and cultural influences from Africa. The holiday was developed in 1966 by Maulana Ndabezitha
Karenga. The focus of Kwanzaa is on family and the
harvest as well as certain principles, such as unity and
faith.
Gifts make up one of the seven symbols of Kwanzaa
celebrations. However, gift-sharing is not the central
part of this special holiday. Gifts are symbolic of the
labor and love of parents and the commitments made
and kept by their children.
Gifts are exchanged in abundance this time of year.
The traditions behind the giving of presents is farreaching and based in religious, secular and cultural
traditions.

The Meaning of Helping Thy Neighbor

By Cara Connelly
lthough the United
States is regarded as
the worlds wealthiest nation, nearly 15 percent
of all American households
struggle to put food on the
table. Regionally speaking,
no one is different than anyone else and that means
families in local communities are affected by this national plight.
Food pantries are one
way to help combat the issue
of hunger. Pantries provide
nutritious food to residents
as a supplement to their regular food shopping. Food is
donated by community
members and organizations
that sponsor food drives to
keep food pantries stocked.
The Hackettstown-Mansfield PBA #369 is sponsoring a fall food drive to
benefit the Trinity United
Methodist Church food
pantry of Hackettstown. According to Sgt. Darren
Tynan, spokesman for the
benefit, The Trinitys Lord
Food pantry feeds more than
1,200 families on any given
month. The need increases
drastically during the holidays.
Typically, recipients are

allowed to select what they


want using a shopping guide
based on the number of people in their household.
Modern day food pantries
are often described as client
choice where clients select
what they want for themselves. This method allows
the freedom of choice and
eliminates waste. Some food
pantries offer a supplemental USDA programs to families that qualify such as
WIC, Medicaid, Food
Stamp Program and Temporary Assistance to needy
families.
Everyone needs a little
help from time to time. If in
need of nutritional assistance, the following are
some
regional
food
pantry/service opportunities.

available to town or county


residents. She recommends
calling ahead and notes that
some food pantries require
a face to face interview so
we can help better determine
the best, most appropriate or
alternative or additional
services to aid families.
Why not start a new family tradition and spend some
time volunteering at a food
pantry, soup kitchen or start
a food pantry drive? Get
kids involved for a hands-on
lesson in giving back to the
community. Remember, one
in six Americans, at some
point, are impacted by
hunger. Chances are someone in every neighborhood,
community or Church will
be impacted. The need is
year round, volunteers are
always sought and, every
donation counts.

IMPLANT DENTISTRY
For over twenty years, implant dentistry has been a reliable option for patients
with missing teeth. With the ability to support a crown, an implant procedure
has the capacity to bypass drilling the adjacent teeth. Additionally, with the
recent availability of mini implants, implant dentistry has expanded its utilization to anchoring both full and partial dentures for a more secure fit. As they
provide an economic alternative, patients have been very receptive of mini
implants, as they make eating and speaking with dentures much easier.
Dr. Helen Chiu has always been involved in implant dentistry, making it an
integrated part of her everyday practice. From replacing a single tooth, inserting crowns or bridges, securing dentures, to creating multiple, full-arch reconstructions, she performs every step of each process, surgical and restorative.

Verona Lions Club Seeks Civic Minded Individuals

By J. L. Shively
he Verona Lions Club is not unfamiliar in the Verona community.
Most residents are very familiar with
their presence and their purpose. Since
1951 the club, a syndicate of the Lions Club
International, has served the Verona and
Cedar Grove area.
Currently, 40 members strong, yet, as a
constantly growing service organization, it
is always seeking new volunteers who wish
to make a difference in their town. With the
motto We Serve as its foundation, the
club has succeeded in instating many programs which assist members in the community. The Lions Club created the Hospital
Loan Closet, which is a collection of just
about anything a patient would need upon
returning home from the hospital. The
closet could be described as a small garage
provided by the town, said Verona Lions
Club Membership Chair and former Club
President Frank Ricciardi, and it includes
items such as hospital beds, walkers, canes
and bathroom seats. All of the items are
available for loan through the club and can

Roofing

be delivered to the home.


The Lions Club is also responsible for
the Eye Mobile, which offers eye and hearing examines free to Verona residents during the Fair in the Square. The well-being
of fellow residents is an important aspect of
Lions Club membership and the members
are often seeking new ways to help the
community and recognize others who have
made a positive impact. Each year Verona
high school seniors have the benefit of the
Lions Club Senior Scholarship. A few seniors who apply are chosen for the scholarship prize by a review of their essay and
personal merit as well as academics.
This time of year especially Lions Club
members are busy helping to donate nearly
$3,000 for holiday food baskets to families
in need within the community.
It was also a donation by the Lions Club
which helped to expand the library to include a large print section. Upon completion of current renovations at the library the
Lions Club will donate another $1,500 to
expand this large print section even more.
More recently, the Lions Club was able

to purchase and donate a Toyota Sedan to


the town for the use as a medical transportation vehicle for the sick and elderly. This
vehicle was purchased through the acquirement of a generous grant from United Way.
The car is kept at the community center
where a Verona municipal employee is
scheduled to shuttle local residents to and

members donate their time towards this
cause and take turns driving the car and
meeting the people whom their efforts have
helped. The car that the club donated was
procured to replace the existing vehicle that
was already in service and had been donated by past Lions Club members.
The club always has an interest to work
toward the betterment of Verona and its
Residence, Ricciardi says, and it was with
this in mind that the club decided to act
upon using the grant money for replacing
this car.
These are only a few of the local causes
which the Lions Club supports but their
service is not restricted to local endeavors.
The club has been spearheading an eyeglass
collection which includes the gathering of
used eyeglasses which are then sent to be
refurbished and then redistributed around
the world to people who cannot afford

glasses.
The next upcoming Lions Club project
in Verona is set to be the refurbishment of
two bus shelters. This project is currently
in the planning stages while the club works
through sorting out building materials and
permits.
The Verona Lions Club is part of all of
these great causes and more. They are a
civic minded group of individuals who
enjoy their part in giving back to the community as well as the social camaraderie
that the club membership offers.
Lions members are dedicated to the
health and well-being of Verona residents,
Ricciardi says. They are a great club with
a great cause that is always in need of new
members and new friends.
For more information or to become a
member of the Verona Lions Club, contact
Ricciardi at 973-267-0587; or email ricciardif@aol.com.

More Strides Made To Raise Awareness And Funds For Rare Disease

By Cheryl Conway
ike the rainbow in the sky that morning, hundreds of runners and walkers
throughout the state stretched across
Central Park of Morris County in Morris
Plains to raise awareness and funds to support research of a rare disease.
On Sat., Oct. 31, families and supporters
of those affected by Creutzfeldt - Jakob disease (CJD) participated in The First Annual
Strides for CJD 5k Run/Walk. Sponsored by
the CJD Foundation in NY, the event allowed families and friends to pay tribute to
their loved ones and raise awareness of CJD,
a rare neurodegenerative disease that has no
treatment or cure.
For the one person in every million
worldwide that has been affected by CJD,
strides have been made as effective outreach
whether through support groups, helpline,
referrals, caregiving information, family
workshops and medical education to those
touched by CJD. The walk allowed victims
loved ones to gather and show their strength
through solidarity.
"The outpouring of emotion was overwhelming at the Strides for CJD event," said
Sandy Ghezzi of Morris Township and CJD
Advocate and volunteer. "Families came
from near and far with children, aunts, uncles, friends and even the family pets to celebrate the lives of their loved ones and show
their support toward finding a cure for CJD."
The vibrant rainbow that shined above
participants magnified the events purpose.
There was a rainbow at the event! And
it didn't even rain that day, so it was unexpected, says Ghezzi. One of the attendees
I spoke to at the family photo display/message board area was a man from Morris
Plains. Peter lost his beloved wife to CJD in
the past six months. He pointed out the rainbow to me and said those we lost were with
us that day; the rainbow was proof they were
looking down on us, smiling.
In its debut walk by the CJD Foundation,
Strides for CJD events were also held in 10
cities throughout the United States such as
Atlanta; Chicago; Cleveland; Colorado;
Maryland; Minneapolis; Arizona and Southern California. With less government funding to support research for rare diseases and
the market condition, a greater effort has
been executed to promote awareness and additional funding for research into CJD. Organizers hope to continue the walk annually.
"We were thrilled to see such a large
turnout for the first ever Strides for CJD
event in New Jersey," said Ghezzi. "What
warmed my heart was to see the families and

friends who attended so eager to talk with


each other and donate to the cause. This is a
strong community that has bonded around
CJD and is committed to supporting each
other and finding a cure."
According to a press release from the
CJD Foundation, CJD is caused by prions,
proteins that can misfold in the brain, with
devastating effects, including rapid mental
and physical deterioration. CJD is the most
common of the prion diseases.
Families affected by prion diseases like
CJD can sometimes feel that theyre the only
one, said Debbie Yobs, CJD Foundation
President. This event allows them to connect with one another, and raise awareness
in their communities about the devastating
impact of CJD and the need for support, education, and research.
Proceeds will support the CJD Foundations General Fund, which supports advocacy, medical education, family support and
research programs.
CJD advances at a brutally rapid pace,
Yobs said. Often the patient has appeared
perfectly healthy just weeks or months before the diagnosis. But CJD progresses so
aggressively that the family scrambles to get
a diagnosis, while the disease rushes ahead.
Thats why its so important for us to educate
medical professionals about the disease and
to raise awareness, provide family support,
and spur research.
Ghezzi, who lost her father in 1998 to
CJD, says Theres no treatment; theres no
cure. When you get a diagnosis its 100 percent fatal. Theres nothing they can give you;
theres nothing they can take.
Ghezzis father Ed Mjos of Minneapolis,
MN, died on Aug. 25, 1998 at the age of 73,
only four weeks after being diagnosed with
sporadic CJD.
He started developing symptoms, four
months prior, explains Ghezzi. His walking
was not steady, his legs would shake and he
ended up going blind in the end. Because
CJD is in the brain, body functions get affected. Her father died of malnutrition as he
was unable to swallow.
It happened quickly, says Ghezzi. It
was a rapid deterioration of bodily functions. It was frightening for us. He was very
active; he was a speed walker as a member
of the Twin City race Walkers Club where
he lived. Bridge player, joke teller, active
Lions Club member, all around good guy,
and all of a sudden his eyes got big, he
was losing balance, starting using a cane,
then he started walking into walls, using
a walker then a wheelchair. Rapid dementia

Sandy Ghezzi with her father, Ed Mjos.

as well as short term memory set in.


Ghezzi recalls making appointments with
doctors, but they would say he was older;
hes getting dementia or Alzheimers.
Ghezzi did not give up and instead brought
him to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
They did 63 tests in one day, recalls
Ghezzi. At that time the Mayo Clinic doctors
had seen only 25 previous cases. It was only
until they received her fathers brain tissue
from his autopsy that doctors were able to
diagnose with absolute certainty that Mjos
had sporadic CJD.
Diagnosis of CJD starts with clinical observation and process of elimination of other
diseases, according to information provided
by the CJD Foundation. First, more likely
and treatable diseases are ruled out. When
CJD is suspected, the next step is for a qualified professional experienced with CJD to
read an MRI and check cerebral spinal fluid
for protein indicators, to confirm the preliminary diagnosis. Post mortem, a brain autopsy is the only way to positively confirm
the CJD diagnosis.
Ghezzi says, Its frightening; its hard to
know where to go when a loved one becomes suddenly affected. There are resources out there. If theres something that
doesnt seem right, seek medical professionals; try a different source.
To help provide support to other families
affected by CJD and spread information and
awareness, Ghezzi has become a patient advocate.
Actively volunteering 17 years after her
fathers death, Ghezzi says she began going
to the annual conferences in 2008, when she
first learned about them.
I was humbled at the beginning by the
lack of progress in finding a cure, explains

Ghezzi. It seemed totally hopeless at the


time to me. But as the years went by, at the
annual conferences, through the presentations by scientists from around the world,
there was a glimmer of light, more and more
understanding about the disease. There was
finally hope. Each year there was new information, progress. I am cautiously hopeful
that one day we will crack the code. And I
feel inspired to help in any way I can, as part
of the CJD team. Because no one deserves
to be told they have a fatal disease and there
is no treatment whatsoever, and nothing that
can be done. There is a solution, and we will
be relentless -- together we will find it.
As far as progress, there is still no cure or
treatment, but research is underway worldwide to learn more about the disease mechanisms and to evaluate potential diagnostics
and treatments. Research developments
have been made on a number of fronts. The
CJD Foundation sponsors a research program that attracts researchers worldwide.
The CJD Foundation, which was established in Miami in 1993, provides support
for families affected by prion disease. Moving its headquarters to NY in 2013, the nonprofit foundation provides a seven-day
HelpLine, referrals and caregiving information, family workshops, and support groups,
as well as medical education and an annual
conference for families and scientists.

Two Dogs Looking For New Home


As Owner Too Sick To Care

leventh Hour Rescue


receives many pleas
to help dogs in need
from all over the United
States. Some stories touch
hearts deeply. This is one of
those stories. It is also another example of how
Eleventh Hour Rescue finds
the beauty and love in pets
that other shelters or rescues
ignore or choose to discard.
Meet Machin and Newman, a bonded pair of pups
who need an angel to step in
and rescue them together
now that their Dad,
Richard, is too sick to care
for them. He has tried but
has been unable to find
someone who would adopt
them locally in Florida, so
Eleventh Hour Rescue of
Rockaway is stepping in to
take them into their care and
find a special place where
they can continue to be together. It is hard enough for
them to lose their Dad,
Eleventh Hour does not
want them to lose each
other, too. They love each
other so much that they actually like being in a large
crate together.
Help keep them together
so that their story has a
happy ending. Machin is a
gorgeous female Black Lab
mix, about 4 years old. She
has a curled tail and a spotted front leg so perhaps
there is some Dalmatian or
Pointer mixed in her. She is
extremely devoted to her
person and really wants to
please. She knows the basics like sit, stay, and down.
She is both house and crate
trained. She would make an
excellent companion for a
vet with PTSD or an active
person because she is very
attentive and loving. She
takes corrections immediately, too. She is a total love

bug and likes to snuggle


with people. She would
love older kids shes a little too energetic for younger
ones and might knock them
over in her excitement. She
should be the top dog in
her new home and not be
placed with small dogs or
cats shes a little too interested in them. If someone is
looking for a running companion, she would love that.
Newman is a senior
hound eight to nine years
old. He doesn't act like a
senior because he has
plenty of energy but can
still be a very mellow dog.
He enjoys the outdoors,
would love a fenced in yard
for hanging out, but prefers
the comfort of a soft bed or
couch. He gets excited for
outings in the car and loves
dinner time. He has a wellrounded, gentle and loving
spirit and has been friendly
with all visitors. He seems
fine with small dogs but do

not suggest a home with


cats. Newman does not demand a lot of attention but
he does love human and animal companionship. He
looks for Machin to cuddle
with.
It is asking a lot for
someone to take two large
dogs into their home, but
Machin and Newman look
to each other for comfort
and we are hoping that
someone somewhere can
open their heart to both of
these dogs. Their Dad will
have peace of mind knowing that these dogs will be
kept together which will
ease their transition from
one living situation to another. To meet them, complete an application to adopt
them and be sure to mention
their names - Machin and
Newman- Bonded Pair!
An adopter would be
amazing.

Blood Drives Held In November

ew Jersey Blood Services has


planned the following blood
drives:
Nov. 27: Knights of Columbus 3665, in
Netcong, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Nov. 27: Madison Area YMCA, Madison,
2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Nov. 28: Presbyterian Church of Morris
Plains, Morris Plains 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
New Jersey Blood Services, a division
of New York Blood Center (NYBC) is asking for help to maintain an adequate supply
of all blood types, but especially O-negative
the universal blood which can be transfused into anyone in an emergency. In addition, hundreds of additional blood drives
need to be scheduled to meet projected hospital demand. Current inventory of several
blood types is running below the desired
target level.
Its simple: hospital patient demand for
blood often outpaces our best efforts to recruit donors and schedule blood drives,
said NYBC Executive Director of Donor

Recruitment Andrea Cefarelli. There are


always reasons but we have to overcome
that for the sake of hospital patients who
need us.
This is one of the toughest times of the
year, Cefarelli added. Were asking for
our dedicated supporters to roll up their
sleeves to make sure were able to provide
our hospital partners with whatever they
need to take care of their patients.
Blood products have a short shelf life
from five to 42 days, so constant replenishment is necessary. Each and every day
there are patients who depend on the transfusion of red blood cells, platelets and
plasma to stay alive. But blood and blood
products cant be manufactured. They can
only come from volunteer blood donors
who take an hour to attend a blood drive or
visit a donor center.
To donate blood or for information on
how to organize a blood drive call 1-800933-2566; visit: www.nybloodcenter.org.

CIEE Welcomes International Students,


Looks For Host Families

IEE, Council on International Educational Exchange, is looking for


host families to open their hearts
and homes to welcome an international exchange student into their community for the
second semester of the school year. Students will be arriving in January. Students
hail from all over the globe and are eager to
learn about the United States, become a
member of an American family, community
and school.
This program provides an opportunity
for host families to form lifelong relationships and unforgettable memories. More
than 1,400 CIEE high school students arrive in the U.S. each year.
Students live with host families, attend
high school, and become true members of
their new families and communities.
Students participating in the exchange
are between 15 18 years of age, have studied English for a minimum of three years,
have their own medical insurance and
spending money and have undergone a
thorough personal screening and interview
process. Many of these students arrive in

the U.S. with dreams of participating in


clubs, sports, arts, music and other activities
as most foreign schools have none. They return to their native land with improved English skills, a sense of independence and
self-confidence, more maturity and a better
global understanding.
Most importantly they will have made
American relationships that will last forever.
The CIEE is a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to helping
people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse
world. Founded in 1947, CIEE has become
a worldwide leader in international education
and
exchanges.

n Wed., Nov. 11, the Depression and


Bipolar Support Alliance plans to
feature at its monthly educational
meeting Dr. Debra E. Koss.
Her talk will be Kids and Mood Disorders (Bipolar disorder and Depression): Parents Role in Treatment. Families play an
integral role in helping children and teens
with mood disorders engage in their own
treatment, which is necessary in order to
achieve best outcomes.
Koss will discuss strategies that will help
parents to work collaboratively with their
children to improve compliance with treatment; followed by a question and answer session on all aspects of child, adolescent and
young adult mood disorders.
A graduate from the University of Virginia Medical School, Koss is board certified
in child and adolescent psychiatry with a private practice in Sparta. She is also clinical
assistant professor at Rutgers Robert Wood
Johnson Medical School.
Koss is a steadfast advocate for children
and youth with mental illness at the local,

as chair of the Council on Advocacy for the


NJ Psychiatric Association and as the NJ Advocacy liaison to the American Academy of
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Koss is
also the 2011 recipient of the NAMI Exemplary Psychiatrist Award.
These educational meetings take place at
7:45 p.m. at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship in Morristown. The public is cordially invited; a nominal donation is
requested from non-members if possible. In
addition to the lecture series, peer group support sessions led by experienced facilitators
are held every Tues. evening of the month at
the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship at 7:30
p.m. Family and friends are always welcome.
