Generosity prevailed on the fairway at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club’s 17th annual cancer awareness golf tournament fundraiser, “Links for Life,” in July.


Recently, Helen Taylor, Executive Director of the WhidbeyHealth Foundation, was presented with a check for $12,748.00 by Laura Youngs and Nan Roth of the Useless Bay Women's Golf Association, the organization that runs the tournament. Event chairwoman Jana Madrigali said this year’s tournament was a huge success due to enthusiasm all-around and some added extras, including a silent auction and a prize for best golf-team costumes.


The Links for Life funds were raised to support WhidbeyHealth Cancer Care and its new cancer rehabilitation program, one of the first state-certified cancer survivorship programs in Washington. This program, which officially launches this fall, will help patients cope with the fatigue, pain or impairment that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis, with the ultimate goal of enabling patients to get back to their normal daily routine in the period following treatment.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
