JRMC recognizes #GROWvember teams

Below-the-belt health can make faces to blush. Below-the-belt health can also make faces very hairy. Jamestown area #GROWvember teams helped get the word out about men’s health below the belt this fall, knowing that ignoring real symptoms can have a devastating effect. The teams grew beards and mustaches to bring attention to issues in the bedroom and bathroom. Jamestown Regional Medical Center recognized those teams on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at its #GROWvember ‘Stache Bash at Jonny B’s Brickhouse in Jamestown. read...

JRCC team takes top #GROWvember prize

After losing his father to bladder cancer in 1999, Shawn Haakenson has a lot to live for. The 32-year-old is married to wife, Nadine, and has a 2-year-old son named Cash. Haakenson’s mother battled cancer too. Though she’s cancer-free now, she traveled to Minnesota, sometimes by herself, for treatment. So when Jamestown Regional Medical Center created a beard-growing contest for men’s health, support just grew… and grew… That growth was due in part to Haakenson and the James River Correctional Center’s (JRCC) #GROWvember team: “All About the Beard – No Stubble.” Haakenson is a sergeant there. He and his six teammates – Tarnue Ballah, Brad Carlson, Jared Schwanz, Mitch Hansmeier, Travis Yunck and James Young – took top prize for most money raised in the #GROWvember beard-growing contest. In total, JRCC and the other 13 teams raised more than $3,000. All proceeds benefit the upcoming JRMC cancer center. read...
