Get Pinked campaign set for fourth year
Many events benefit Cathy Lincoln Memorial Fund
By Joshua Kellogg
The Daily Times
FARMINGTON
Organizers of the Get
Pinked campaign plan
to keep their fundraising
momentum going so
they can help San Juan
County women diag-
nosed with breast cancer
cover health care costs.
Entering its fourth
year, the Get Pinked
San Juan County cam-
paign organized by the
San Juan Medical
Foundation is hoping to
raise $175,000 for the
Cathy Lincoln Memorial
Cancer Fund, named for
a San Juan Regional
Medical Center nurse
who died from breast
cancer.
A wide range of
events will take place in
October to raise money
for the fund. The Get
Pinked Rally kicks off
the campaign on Oct. 4
in McGee Park with
food and game booths,
music and an attempt to
set a new Guinness
World Record.
John Oliphant, foun-
dation executive direc-
tor, said Get Pinked
Rally participants will
be trying to set the
record for the largest
dance to the song
Gangnam Style by Psy
after last years attempt
was rained out.
This is the first year
the rally will take place
at the beginning of the
campaign.
We thought a kick-
off rally would ... get
more people involved,
Oliphant said.
Other annual events
scheduled include the
benefit race and auction
at Aztec Speedway and
the 1-mile fun walk, 5k
run and obstacle/mud
run organized by the

coln Memorial
Cancer Fund

in October 2001
in memory of

a San Juan
County resident
who died from
breast cancer.

Bloomfield Fire
Department.
Brenda Shepherd,
foundation assistant
manager of operations,
said a new volunteer
group called the Get
Pinked Ambassadors
have been helping by
reaching out to business-
es to see if they want to
participate in the cam-
paign.
They are working
really hard and they are
out talking to businesses
and theyll be attending
a lot of the events in
October, Shepherd said.
Its a major help to the
foundation.
The Cathy Lincoln
Memorial Fund was cre-
ated to ensure women
with breast cancer have
access to treatments and
tests that can catch the
cancer early.
Jamie Lujan, Lincolns
daughter, said she
remembers late-night
talks with her mother
about women struggling
with the costs associated
with medical treatments.
It was extremely
important to my mom
they get help, Lujan
said.
When Lincoln died
from breast cancer in
2001, Lujan said she
wanted to make sure
something good would
come from her mothers
death.
Shepherd said the
fund was established in
October 2011 by friends
and family to ensure
women in San Juan
County diagnosed with
breast cancer would not
have to struggle to pay
for diagnostic tests and
treatments they needed
early on.
They didnt want
any women not to get a
mammogram simply
because they couldnt
afford it, Shepherd said.
She saw in her nursing,
many women that came
in when it was too late. ...
That was one of her final
wishes, that someone
would start a fund to
help these women
because she was seeing it
more and more.
Shepherd said the
fund helped 11 women
the first year and has
helped more than 1,300
women in the last 13
years.
The foundation works
with area doctors offices
to identify women who
could benefit from the
fund and after an appli-
cation is approved, the
fund can help pay for
medications, transporta-
tion costs and diagnostic
tests.
Oliphant said the
fund helps women who
are under-insured or
uninsured. He said they
have only turned down a
handful of applicants,
and those either made
too much money or had
sufficient insurance.

FARMINGTON A
calendar featuring San
Juan County women
who have been diag-
nosed with breast cancer
that will be sold as a
fundraiser for this years
Get Pinked program
was a project photogra-
pher Bree Gonzalez
could believe in.
Gonzalez, owner of
Faith Photography, will
be selling copies of her
2015 Fighters and
Survivors calendar with
photos of San Juan
County women at Get
Pinked events in
October. The proceeds
will benefit the Cathy
Lincoln Memorial Fund.
Gonzalez was look-
ing for that special blend
of art and community
service.
It was a challenge
for me to come up with
something, Gonzalez
said.
The idea of a calendar
the brainchild of
Gonzalezs friend Sheila
Mobley, who pushed the
entire project into over-
drive with the sugges-
tion that it could be a
fundraiser. She found
the calendars first
model, Ellyn Dimond,
within 24 hours of talk-
ing to Gonzalez.
We brainstormed for
about 20 minutes and
came up with the calen-
dar, Gonazalez said.
Dimonds breast can-
cer was discovered
about two years ago, the
day after her son
Sullivans first birthday.
After a year of
c h e m o t h e r a p y ,
Dimonds cancer is cur-
rently in remission.
It was a cold
February day when
Dimond and Gonzalez
traveled to the Chaco
Culture National
Historical Park to shoot
Dimonds calendar
photo.
With her hair styled
like a 1950s pinup model
and fluffy pink dress in
tow, Dimond hiked
about 20 minutes in high
heels while helping
carry the camera equip-
ment before changing
into her dress in the
middle of the Chaco
park hills. Its a memory
Dimond describes as
hilarious, although she
clearly remembers the
freezing temperatures.
Its been amazing.
She cared enough about
us and she wanted it to
be documented so we
can remember it and not
remember it in a nega-
tive way, Dimond said.
It was a nice thing for
us personally but also
we could help other
people. It was an impor-
tant part of the healing
process of cancer.
Knowing the cancer was
not in vain and we could
help other people.
Gonzalez said the
project was a little
stressed during the pro-
duction of the calendar
but she was surprised
and overwhelmed by
the response.
I wanted it to be
about San Juan County
and the women here. I
really wanted to
embrace this area,
Gonzalez said.
Gonzalez pho-
tographed women all
over San Juan County,
including Shiprock,
San Juan College,
downtown Farmington
and the Bisti Highway.
Dimond said it was
an amazing opportunity
for the women to be able
to bring awareness to
the Cathy Lincoln
Memorial Fund while
learning a little bit more
about themselves.
I think it should be
noted that Brees goal
was to have fun. To have
each personality come
out in a photo shoot.
Most of us havent had
their picture taken (pro-
fessionally) before,
Dimond said. It was
one way for her to make
us feel good on the out-
side as we do in the
inside.

Bloomfield describes
itself at the center of
adventure. Sure enough!
The Bloomfield Fire

little bit of adventure in
support of the county-
wide campaign for Get
Pinked.
The department is
hosting the fourth annu-
al Mud Run on Oct. 11 at
the Bloomfield

verts. Adventure will
abound as contestants
compete in selected age
groups as individuals
and teams.
Tonya Eckstein is an
ambassador for the Get
Pinked campaign,
which raises money to
benefit the Cathy

Cancer Fund. She admit-
ted to not being at her
peak of fitness.
But Im still running
this year because I
believe in the cause and
because I want to sup-
port the Bloomfield Fire
Department, she said.
They work really hard
to make this event a suc-
cess, to benefit the
fund.
Several businesses are
helping Bloomfield Get

9 GET PINKED 2014 THE DAILY TIMES
By Molly Maxwell
Special to The Daily Times
FARMINGTON It
was not a convenient
time for the 38-year-old
single mother to deal
with breast cancer.
With Christmas com-
ing up, the start of the
new year and then her
daughters sixth birth-
day on Jan. 10, the lump
Nicki Parks felt in her
right breast one morning
in December 2012 would
just have to wait.
But when she felt that
stubborn marble again
on Jan. 9, 2013, reason
had its way. The next
day was not only her
daughters birthday but
also the start of Parks
journey with the dread
disease.
When youre first
diagnosed, you think, I
dont have time for this.
Im going to have to do
chemo and surgeries
and be off work, Parks
said. But then there
comes a point where
you realize your health
doesnt take second
place to anyone, and
you need to get better so
you can be back with
your family.
It can be difficult to
gauge the speed at
which cancer grows or
spreads because it is
fueled by chemicals,
such as estrogen and
progesterone, that are
normally healthy to the
body, according to the
National Breast Cancer
Foundation.
HER2 receptors are
proteins involved in the
growth of breast cells. If
the HER2 gene is not
functioning properly,
cells grow and divide
uncontrollably, accord-
ing to the foundations
website. This happens in
about a quarter of breast
cancer patients.
As most people know,
the earlier cancer is
detected, the better a
patients chances of
beating it.
Parks attributes her
relatively quick recovery
to the speed at which the
doctors at San Juan
Regional Medical Center
pushed her through the
process.
On Jan. 21, 2013, Parks
was diagnosed with inva-
sive ductal carcinoma.
Seventeen days later, on
Feb. 7, she underwent a
double mastectomy with
immediate reconstruc-
tion. She was in surgery to
repair a ruptured implant
on March 6, and on March
25, a little more than two
months after her diagno-
sis, she began the first of
four rounds of
chemotherapy.
Once I made that
decision to pick up the
phone and call the doc-
tor, it just seems like a
whirlwind, Parks said.
Part of that I credit to
the doctors. They wont
let you just sit around
and take two weeks to
make a decision. They
want to know, and they
want to know before
you leave the office,
because its nothing to
play around with, and
they take that to heart.
Parks describes her-
self as the eternal opti-
mist. But even she
admits it wasnt opti-
mism alone that helped
her through her journey.
Her 6-year-old
daughter, Jordyn, knew
about her mothers ill-
ness and life marched
on. Some days, Parks
drove Jordyn to school
and gymnastics practice,
just like normal. And on
the days she couldnt
those days when the
effects of chemotherapy
left her bed-ridden for
12 hours she had her
crew.
The Farmington
mothers best friend,
Christy Dunson, picked
up Jordyn for the week-
end when Parks was at
her weakest. And Nicki
and her daughter
moved in with Nickis
mother, Loretta Parks,
who is retired. The
grandmother called
Jordyn our glue.
We did our level best
to ensure her life was
normal with play dates
and sleepovers, Loretta
Parks said. We wanted
to protect Jordyn.
Nicki Parks credits
the love and support of
friends and family for
helping her beat the dis-
ease.
I fought it. I beat it.
Now back to my life,
she said. Its like a blip
in my radar.
Now, Nicki and
Loretta Parks give back
to the community by
participating in the Get
Pinked campaign.
Nicki Parks took part
in the Pink Glove Dance,
a video organized by
Sheila Mobley, owner of
Danz Force Dance and
Gymnastics Academy of
Farmington. Last year,
she was a model in the
Breast Cancer
Awareness Luncheon
and Style Show, which
raises money for the
Cathy Lincoln Memorial
Cancer Fund.
You get to wear real-
ly cool clothes from
Natalies. They do your
hair, your make up.
They give you a mas-
sage. You get to walk the
runway, she said. Its a
good mix of all the
stages of survivorhood.
It makes you feel spe-
cial.
Loretta Parks is an
ambassador for the Get
Pinked campaign, vol-
unteering her time to
contact businesses.
Nicki Parks complet-
ed her chemotherapy
May 28, 2013. On Sept.
20, 2013, she had her
final surgery to place
permanent implants.
Now, she is in remission
and said her life has
returned to her new
normal.
She still gets tired and
sometimes needs to take
days off work. But even
through the worst times,
when she thought she
couldnt go on, a quote
from a friend helped
her:
You dont have to do
it for a month, Parks
would tell herself. You
just have to do it for
today.
You just have to do it for today

Force All Starz Dance and Gymnastics Studio in Farmington, where Jordyn takes
gymnastics classes twice a week. Nicki Parks says she was able to keep her

gymnastics classes.

life and cancer survivor-
ship. Ten beautiful
women cancer survivors
are treated to a morning
of pampering, including
hairstyling and makeup,
and then they model
beautiful fashions from
Natalies boutique to the
overwhelming applause
of the 300 luncheon
guests. Year after year,
everyone is touched by
the stories they hear
from these brave
women. Every story is
unique, and yet they all
contain threads of hope
and heartache, strength
and support, persever-
ance and resilience.
Many in the audience
are breast cancer sur-
vivors themselves, mak-
ing the event all the
more special.
The Breast Cancer
Awareness Luncheon
and Style Show is 11
a.m. to 1 p.m. on
Wednesday, Oct. 22, at
the Courtyard by
Marriott. Doors open at
10:30 a.m. for guests to
view silent auction
items.
Tickets go on sale at 8
a.m. Oct. 1. Prices are
$35 per ticket, or $350
per table of 10. Tables
are assigned from the
runway out in the order
in which they were pur-
chased. This longstand-
ing event is so well
attended that tickets sell
out very quickly. Be
sure to call the San Juan
Medical Foundation
office at 505-609-6805 for
your tickets or for more
information. Hope to
see you there!
