Danny Miller, Michael Helfrich, and Andrew McDonald have been friends since before the boys were in kindergarten. The three of them used to play, have slumber parties, and do all the things school-age boys like to do together. They know everything about each other. Growing up in the same community, their households just overlapped. “The boys could have lived at any of our houses,” said Ellen Miller, Danny’s mother. Now in high school, and all playing varsity football for a Newport Harbor team that’s 4-1, Miller, Helfrich, and McDonald have grown into their own personalities, with Miller taking on quieter, sometimes more serious approach to things than the other two. “Before games, he doesn’t really talk at all,” McDonald said.

Passed away Tuesday, September 4, 2007, at age 51, after a joyful life cut tragically short by cancer, in Newport Beach. Cheryl had enormous zest for life and a wonderful sense of humor. She was devoted to her family and friends, and they to her. Good food was a constant. After earning a Masters degree in Food & Nutrition from CSLA, she spent 28 years creating specialty cheesecakes and desserts sold to major U.S. retailers and restaurants. Her desserts were the star of friends’ weddings and birthday celebrations as well as frequent parties at the Browns’ home, ranging from impromptu barbecues for 20 to tamale “production lines” at Christmas.

Former Mayor Norma Hertzog-Wagner returned to Costa Mesa, her old hometown, in May after 17 years away. Then, Friday, she got to be part of history. Hertzog-Wagner, who served two terms during the 1970s and 1980s, was among the speakers and walkers in the city's first Relay for Life at Orange Coast College on Friday. The American Cancer Society has sponsored the fundraising walks since 1985, but until Friday, Costa Mesa had never hosted one within its boundaries. For that matter, Hertzog-Wagner, a breast cancer survivor, had never walked in a relay before.

Brent Jacobsen is not simply looking for another challenge as he prepares to tackle Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. The Newport Beach business developer is attempting to raise $1 for each foot of the 19,340-foot inactive volcano he climbs, with the money going to fund breast cancer research. With a week-and-a-half to go before he departs for Tanzania, Jacobsen is about $4,000 short of his objective. "If I am going to climb it anyway, it's even better if I can also raise funds," he said.

We admit we have a special connection to the Relay for Life. Nearly four years ago, the Daily Pilot lost one of its own to pancreatic cancer. Since then, we have made sure that we are wellrepresented at this annual event put on by the American Cancer Society. But we know we are not alone. We know that cancer has touched so many of us, so profoundly. The Relay for Life this year was proof of that. The event, which had 46 teams and 1,000 attendees, raised more money than ever before — $186,000 plus.
