"Through your generous gifts, we can help women let the true beauty of who they are shine through by providing financial assistance with a variety of things to help ease the painful side effects of cancer treatments," said Lori Fuchs of the Inner Beauty Salon.

· Wigs and supplies
· Hats and soft caps
· Post-mastectomy camisoles and bras
· Skincare and supplies
· Emu oil to help with radiation treatment

"The dedicated volunteers at Scare Away Cancer go above and beyond to host a fun Halloween celebration and do so to help cancer survivors in genuine need. One hundred percent of this gift will support Inner Beauty patients who cannot afford wigs, mastectomy bras, or other products," said RyAnne Hastings Elsesser from the Methodist Hospital Foundation.
Scare Away Cancer has long been a supporter of Inner Beauty, raising $36,000 to assist in the construction of the new salon that was completed in 2013.

An idea that started over three years ago is now a reality. The Infusion Therapy Center at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center is now fully remodeled. MCL Construction completed the work in December and patients have noticed.
"We are really excited about the final outcome," said Patty Bauer, Service Executive of Oncology Services at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. "We really wanted a place that was warm and inviting for our patients."
Gone are the pink walls, the laminate countertop at the nurse's station, and the old carpet. The Infusion Therapy Center is painted with brighter colors, the nurse's station has a solid surface top, and the floor is medical grade vinyl that gives the appearance of a hardwood floor.
"When I started, I really didn't know the difference, it's just how it was," said Amy Hartigan, a registered nurse at the Infusion Therapy Center. "The new colors and the remodel brings a whole new attitude to the Infusion Center, to the patients, and the staff."
The project was made possible by the generous contributors to Scare Away Cancer. The annual event organized by the employees of MCL Construction raised money for the remodel for two years and contributed $80,000 to the Methodist Hospital Foundation to make construction possible.
"Scare Away Cancer is an awesome event," said Bauer. "It's amazing to be around people who have so much compassion for people they have never met before. It's evident that the people who participate and donate are very genuine."

The organization also supports cancer programs that provide treatment and services to cancer patients. This year, Scare Away Cancer is helping the Linear Accelerator project at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The latest technology in treating cancer is now being utilized at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The addition of a state-of-the-art linear accelerator gives cancer patients in southwest Iowa the best in cancer care.
"Patients have responded extremely well, they are very positive, and have talked about how calming it is to come into the new room with the new equipment," said Steve Baumert, President and CEO of Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital.
To make room for the new linear accelerator, MCL Construction carefully coordinated with hospital staff to assure there were no disruptions to hospital services during the project. It took ten months to complete a 3,400 square foot addition that was constructed between the existing hospital and the parking garage on campus. The new addition created a vault for the linear accelerator with the walls being up to five feet thick of concrete. A new control room, exam room, and storage room are also part of the project.
Director of Cancer Services at Jennie Edmundson Hospital, Michelle Kaufman, worked closely with the MCL Construction team throughout the project.
"The guys from MCL were an absolute joy to work with; the communication from day one all the way through to the project was excellent. I think patient care was their number one concern," said Kaufman.
The Cancer Center at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson is the ONLY nationally accredited cancer center in southwest Iowa and patients may drive an hour or more each way for treatment.
The new linear accelerator will allow the staff at Jennie Edmundson to treat more complex cancers previously referred to other facilities for radiation therapy.
Scare Away Cancer is proud to support this project, the dollars you donate have a huge impact on patients and families that are fighting cancer.
