journey" they undertook together.
This part of the ceremony was divid-
ed into four different parts. In "Begin-
ning," the Voices told how cancer
made an entrance into their lives; in
"Adjusting," they described how they
adapted to living with cancer, in
"Dying," they spoke of the passing
away of loved ones, and finally in
"Living With," patients described how
it felt to live with cancer.
Among the Voices was Karen
Wingrove, who described her struggle
with cancer. She recently had become
engaged when she was diagnosed with
the disease and then treated with
chemotherapy, which caused her to be
infertile. But after undergoing treat-
ment, she was able to give birth to a

of the event, "Everyday Heroes," should
be an example for everyone. She and
cancer center Director Max Wicha
described how the center seeks to make
cancer bearable for patients and how
patients have responded to its programs.
A moment of quiet reflection and a
reading from "The Prophet" by
Lebanese-American poet Kahlil
Gibran followed the speeches. Then
candles distributed at the beginning of
the ceremony were lit. A slideshow
with photos of cancer patients began,
in unison with the reciting of poems
The ceremony finished with the
extinguishing of the candles and the
viewing of cancer patients' mementos,
such as cups, candles and paintings -
many of which were made by the
Karie McCall, an art therapist at the
center, helped patients create the
mementos. She said the ceremony was
a way to symbolically provide relief
"The main objective of this event is
to try to ease the psychological tension
of both the patients and the families
via art therapy, and to seek to give
them support. This is a ceremony of
hope," she said.
Participant Jason Miller said he was
moved by the ceremony, which was
"valuable, uplifting - something to
come back to. The University of
Michigan has created a successful cer-
emony that provided a positive feed-
back within the ceremony."

Day said. "We have educational oppor-

Risk Management, the University's
insurance company, hires a team for
large mold cleanups, which are rare.
"We have (small) cleanups routinely
in one room or at the (University) Hos-
pital," she said.
Older campus buildings require more
diligence in mold prevention, including
pipe replacements and repairs and venti-
lation system cleaning.
She said evidence that the mold prob-
lem has been worse this month is anec-
dotal and collected from the multiple
University departments that respond to
mold calls. Barker said there is no "aver-
age" for monthly mold calls because
changing seasons foster flooding and
humidity, which can lead to mold
growth. Brown estimated that OSEH
receives about one call a month. She
said the first three weeks of this month
have been worse than usual due to hot,

who couldn't move into their off-cam-
pus housing because of mold concerns.
This was one factor in the decision to
place the enforcement of students' off-
campus housing rights on the MSA list
of priorities for this year.
Jason Mironov, student general coun-
sel for MSA, said students should have
the right to a decent housing experience.
"MSA is dedicated to working with the
University administration, local land-
lords and city and state government to
create a student-friendly, quality off-
campus living experience;' he said.
Barker and Brown both said students
can prevent mold from growing in living
areas. Brown said that mold concerns
often start with windows left open over
weekends or holidays, which lets rain
into spaces and fosters mold growth.
Brown said the most important things
students can do is to take ownership of
their space and use good hygiene prac-
tices, such as keeping bathrooms and
kitchens clean. Barker added that OSEH
aims to dry out damp spaces within 24
hours to prevent mold growth and
responds promptly to reports of floods
and leaks. "Mold isn't going to grow if
the conditions aren't right," she said.
Barker said the University follows
New York City guidelines for investi-
gation, prevention and cleanup of vis-
ible mold. These specify that after a
mold situation is reported, OSEH per-
forms an interview with the caller,
investigates the history of water prob-
lems in the space and assesses tem-
perature, humidity levels and odor
and moisture levels in building mate-
rials. If necessary, samples are taken
and moisture meters are used to inves-
tigate suspected mold inside walls or
behind wallpaper. "But typically if
(mold is) there, you're going to see
it," Barker said.
