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.

It's common for kids to run lemonade stands on weekends, but usually they're doing it to make money for candy and toys. Caleigh Wells and Mackenzie Perkins, ten-year-old Corona del Mar residents, recently raised $161 for ovarian cancer research by selling baked goods, coffee, lemonade and hand-painted greeting cards. The girls set up shop Aug. 20 outside Mackenzie's house, which is near the Corona del Mar Farmer's Market. "It was in the morning, so people would come by and get some coffee and cookies," Caleigh said.

Karen S. Kim DOWNTOWN -- After Dr. Mike Neskovic's father had a heart attack more than six years ago, the Glendale physician vowed to live a healthier lifestyle himself. He began eating better, exercising, running the Los Angeles Marathon each year and even climbing to the top of Mt. Whitney. As much as he could, Neskovic would encourage his patients to follow suit, he said. But the 49-year-old family practitioner and geriatrician said he didn't feel like he was doing enough.

Keith Martin, 86, a long-time resident of La Cañda-Flintridge, died at home on October 28, 2010 of bladder cancer. Keith was born in Los Angeles on June 2, 1924. Keith was a veteran of World War II, serving from April 1944 to October 1945 in the 3702nd Army Air Force Base Unit. He was a Bombardier-Navigator and the youngest officer of the crew of the Liberty Belle , a B-24 bomber.

The remaining crew, including Keith, spent nearly two months trekking to safety.

Gary Moskowitz The last thing Kathy Frazer wanted to do when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 was sit at home. She needed to be active, and be around people as much as possible.

“Ho-ho-ho, Merry Christmas!” echoed from the sky as Santa Claus flew over Honolulu Avenue, not in a sleigh but in a Glendale police helicopter, thus announcing to the Montrose community that the holiday season had officially begun. Although the night of Dec. 2 was a little cold, the community turned out for the 31st Annual Montrose Christmas Parade. Both participants and parade watchers were bundled up as they awaited the start of the main event. Preparing for the parade has become as much of a tradition as the parade itself.

Lorraine Watkiss knew she was going to die. After beating cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, then having a malignant tumor removed from her groin ? depriving her of her womanhood ? the disease returned a fourth time, and she accepted her likely fate. She didn?t go down fighting; she was too physically weak, her widow John Watkiss said. Instead, she went down painting. For 80 days straight, Lorraine Watkiss painted variations of an angel, using a wide array of metallic, water-based paint to create images that John Watkiss says were inspired by a spiritual visitation his wife experienced.

And the glory of angels was all around. The Bible describes angels as being mediums of God’s power who execute God’s will, revealing themselves to individual humans and sometimes to a whole nation as on the night of Christ’s birth. For Lorraine Watkiss of La Crescenta, the first angel came to her one evening in the midst of great pain, according to her husband, John Watkiss. She witnessed a golden glow on the ceiling of her bedroom. The glow transformed into an angelic face, framed by an elaborate rose petal headdress.
