(Pictured above: Jerry Schenck, West Central Nebraska Campaign Chair, with Kari Hooker-Leep, Regional Director of West Central Nebraska. Jerry was the guest speaker at CHC-NE’s annual meeting on Aug. 19. We thank Jerry for sharing his family's story and talking about the support they received from the ALS Association Mid-America Chapter.)

Community Health Charities of Nebraska (CHC-NE) celebrated its annual meeting on August 19. It was announced that this past campaign season, CHC-NE raised $2,828,396. The organization has also hit a milestone of raising more than $50 million since its inception in 1972. 

This past year, the Curt Gordon Memorial CHC-NE Foundation received gifts totaling $6,115. This was enough to reach the threshold where applications for grants will be available for the first time this fiscal year.

In addition to our workplace campaigns and the Foundation, CHC has actively enlisted community partners to help spread its message. CHC-NE thanked its underwriting sponsors: Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, PhRMA, Security National Bank and Wells Fargo.

Also at the annual meeting, Craig Sall, First National Wealth Management, was elected State Board Chair. Additionally, the following individuals were elected onto the State Board: Jim Schelble, Werner Enterprises, at-large member; Larry Guenther, BMO Harris Bank, Alzheimer’s Association, Nebraska Chapter; and Mike Wade, Physicians Mutual Insurance Company, at-large member.

Finally, A Partner in Health Award was presented to the Wells Fargo Lincoln team. This award recognizes their dedication to health and speaks to the generosity of their employees and the leadership of their top management.

By Diane Petry For 44 years my sister Deb and I have shared just about everything – sweaters, friends, secrets – even our noses! Maybe that’s because we are twins. Our mother, like many women in that era, was given a drug called Diethylstilbestrol (DES) designed to prevent miscarriages. At that time, no one realized the horrible truth that “DES Daughters” like me and my sister would suffer higher rates of infertility, a rare form of cervical/vaginal cancer (adenocarcinoma) and perhaps more than two times the incidence of breast cancer! In May 2003, I found a lump in my right breast, and I immediately scheduled an appointment for a mammogram.
