It was, we went for the MRI, and we came home, and they had called us three times to go back up there, by the time we got home within an hour.

The Thinnes family heard the news on a Thursday. The next Monday, they were at Mayo Clinc. (Julie Thinnes): "We saw the neurosurgeon and he said, 'Oh, I can get that out.'

It has since become what it is today, a two-day music festival, presenting traditional Cajun musicians, dancing, food, and contests.

Iwalani Tseu - Honoree Speech DOWNTOWN — When Iwalani Tseu was diagnosed with aggressive Stage III breast cancer three years ago, the single mother of three was devastated. Advertisement "I told them they were looking at the wrong X-rays," said Tseu, whose cancer ultimately went into remission after surgery and chemotherapy treatments. "The diagnosis was confirmed on a Friday, and I was told to be ready for pre-op on Monday." While recovering at the hospital, Tseu received countless get-well wishes, phone calls, flowers and balloons. But once home, everything changed. "The balloons popped, the bouquets died and calls became farther and fewer between," Tseu said. "I wasn't prepared for this and felt alone. "When I left the hospital, they gave me a 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' breast cancer pamphlet, but it was written for women on the mainland," she added. Rather than succumbing to mental depression, Tseu established the Iwalani Foundation, with the aim of helping women like herself win the battle over cancer. "When I heard her story, I said I would help in any way I could," said restaurateur Chai Chaowasaree, whose namesake bistro will be the site of a fundraiser for the Iwalani Foundation on Sunday, Oct. 26. It's a befitting site, given that a hula statue of Tseu sits outside Chai's Island Bistro. Ticket cost is $120, which includes a ***tail reception with passed hors d'oeuvres from 5-6 pm, followed by a three-course, sit-down dinner. Live entertainment will be provided by Jerry Santos, Kristian Lei ...
