Cancer support group forming

A support group is being formed for those with cancer.

Kathy “Joy” Huijbregts, recipient of the 2018 Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation’s Person of Courage award, is leading the support group, which is sponsored by Boulder City United Methodist Church.

The first meeting will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, May 24, at the Elaine K. Smith Building, 700 Wyoming St.

It will meet weekly and address people’s needs and concerns in a positive environment while exchanging research and resources. Additionally, there will be time for discussion and questions.

Huijbregts was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, shortly after moving to Boulder City, and continues traditional as well as natural treatments with eight health care providers. She will share her unconventional cancer journey taking participants from their fear and shock diagnosis to experiencing cancer as a sacred journey of self-awareness and personal growth.

Huijbregts holds a master’s degree in education, curriculum and program development and is a licensed educator, researcher and public speaker.

Dessert evokes flavors of fall

Thank you, summer. It’s been a blast, but we’ve had our fill of scorching heat and dusty days. We know better than anyone how wonderful it feels when the leaves begin to change, temperatures drop and autumnal bliss is in the air. It may not be here yet, but we know it’s coming.

Take the ‘pain’ out of making paint choice

The bright yellow leaves fallen on my lawn, albeit heat-induced, remind me that autumn will soon bring us its fabulous color palette. Early fall and preholidays is the perfect time to paint because opening windows for ventilation is ideal. And it will get your house spiffy for the upcoming gatherings. If painting is on your to-do list, start planning now.
