Dennis Claus and Kim Beaudette share more than their position as co-chairs of the Queen of Hearts Charity Tennis Tournament. The event organizers grew up together in Tustin and a mutual tragedy reacquainted them in 2003. Claus and Beaudette, a Newport Beach resident, both lost their mothers to ovarian cancer, and both used their personal misfortune to benefit others. Now in its fifth year, the tournament aims to raise money for research and spread awareness of ovarian cancer, which will claim more than 22,000 American lives this year, Claus said.

When Costa Mesa resident Barbara Kraiss began having problems with swelling in one of her legs in 2003, she simply thought she had a blood clot; but her son, a vascular surgeon, thought it could be something more serious. Kraiss’ son recommended she see a gynecological oncologist, who eventually diagnosed her with stage IV ovarian cancer. “I was shocked, because I felt fine — I had few of the symptoms associated with the disease,” Kraiss said. Stage IV ovarian cancer is the most advanced state of the disease and carries with it a five-year survival rate of about 17%, according to the American Cancer Society.

The three daughters didn't see it coming, nor did the entire family. But when it happened, their whole lives changed forever. When Ann Dobbie died on Christmas Day, 1999, of ovarian cancer, Kim Beaudette, Cathy Greinke and Lori Hunter vowed that this shouldn't happen to other families, if possible. And in January 2000, the Queen of Hearts Foundation was born, the brainchild of the three sisters, all daughters of Ann Dobbie. The objective of the foundation is to support a current research project directly focused on factors thought to be associated with the early detection of ovarian cancer.

Soon after, she moved to sunny California and was raised in South Pasadena. Her beauty was discovered at 15, when she was chosen as a Jonathan Logan contestant winner, whereupon she flew to Paris for two weeks with her mother, Marjorie Warren Mulder. She was nominated and crowned a Rose Princess in the Rose Parade's 1954 Court.

Birth control hormones (BCH) and menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) are on my artist's palette as a psychosexual gynecologist. Their judicious use, mostly out of regular pharmacies, safely improves the quality and length of life of females from puberty to the grave. Additionally, their intimate partners, family, friends and coworkers benefit when health, mood and relations are enhanced. I know the phobias. First, there is the erroneous notion that use of hormones makes women gain weight.

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.
