Local Colon Cancer Survivor, Joe Seier, to Serve as Honorary Chair for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Cindy Bruhn   
Friday, 06 April 2012 09:08
Davenport, IA –The American Cancer Society has selected Joe Seier to serve as honorary survivor for this
year’s Relay For Life® of Scott County.

Joe’s battle against colon cancer began after a hiking trip in Colorado Springs the summer of 2010
turned out to be the expedition that would save his life. Seier, age 54, had journeyed more the trails
more than seven times before but this trip’s climb was different. Increasing fatigue, caused by anemia
and internal bleeding was the result of a tennis-ball sized tumor in his colon. Joe retuned to Davenport
to have the tumor removed and began a 12-treatment regimen of chemotherapy. The surgeon admits
that if Seier had waited six months, he most likely would not have survived.

Joe’s sharing his success story and the importance of supporting organizations like the American Cancer
Society and Relay for Life. Seier will kick off our survivor and caregiver events held at 6 p.m. at the River
Center in Downtown Davenport on April 20.

“Here in Scott County, funds raised by our Relay For Life event are making an impact on so many lives” said
Seier. “From making possible the vital American Cancer Society programs and services that support those
in our community facing a diagnosis, to life-changing cancer research and medical discovery, to advocacy
for access to quality health care for everyone affected by cancer, the money raised through Relay For Life of
Scott County is helping further the vision of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.”

To participate or for more information, please call event co-chairs, Emily Shenk-DeMay (563) 349-0706 or
Natalie Johansen (402) 301-6267. Additionl event details, ceremony and entertainment schedules can be
found online at: RelayForLife.org/scottcountyia

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save
lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we
fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people
stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them
during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by
fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to
join the fight. To learn more about us or to get help, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit
cancer.org.
