        “Every man dies. Not every man truly lives.”
                                 — Braveheart

The Hack n’ Smack event is the fulfillment of a promise made to
Kerry Daveline by his friend, Kevin E. West, just prior to Kerry’s
death on January 4th, 2003. Kevin and Kerry wanted to combine
their passion for golf to raise money and awareness in the fight
against melanoma. Kerry fought like a champ for nearly five years,
still singing, doing voice over work and traveling.

While Kerry was not able to share in the joy of their birth, his widow,
Mia Daveline gave birth to their miracle post-mortem twin daughters
on January 3rd, 2004. They all attend the event annually.

Why we are really here!

Every hour of every day, someone dies of melanoma in the US. Melanoma strikes people
of all ages, race, and economic level.

One in 75 Americans will develop melanoma during their lifetime. Melanoma is the most
highly preventable, and treatable if caught early. Please help start the awareness this
particular cancer needs now more than ever.

Of all of the various skin cancers, melanoma is known to be the most deadly if not caught
in its earliest phases. Approximately 60,000 will be diagnosed with melanoma and 8,00
will die this year from melanoma. Melanoma is the fastest rising cancer it continues to
receive less than 10% of the funding given to basic research of other cancers. In fact,
funding for melanoma research is typically distributed to studies focused on treatments
for other cancers in the hope that there might be benefit for the melanoma patient.

This has been happening since the late 70’s and 80’s. We know that therapies effective
for other cancers typically are not effective for the
melanoma patient. Yet critical funds are expended in basic research that is over 20 years
old and known to have little benefit to the
melanoma community. To find new and more effective treatments, funding MUST be
increased now.

On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, thank you for being a part of this event
to benefit the Melanoma Research Foundation.

                                             A Survivor’s Story
Wayne Benson and Kevin E. West have been friends since 1992. Wayne was one of the first
20 members of The Actors’ Network way back inits infancy. They both shared a passion for
golf (Wayne is better), snow skiing (Wayne is better), and acting. When Kerry was diagnosed
in 1998 they found one more thing in Common…Melanoma. Wayne’s hits about as close to
home as one can. Here’s his story. We are blessed to still have him with us.
I am a two-time cancer survivor. My latest bout was with malignant melanoma. I found out about
my first cancer diagnosis on my birthday in 1984—it was cancer of the muscle, Desmoid Sarcoma,
and it was also malignant. They removed my right-top quadriceps and I had radiation treatments
twice a day for three months. After a lot of pain, and rehab (and being told by doctors that I would
never play sports again, which, by the way, I still do!) I’m fine, and VERY lucky.
                                                                                                       Wayne Benson
In 1999, I was standing on the 10th tee at Steeple Chase golf course with a friend of mine from California who just
happened to be in town. He noticed a little black dot by my nose, it looked like a freckle, but dark like a piece of
chocolate. He asked if I had ever had it looked at, I told him no and asked why? he told me he had a friend with a
similar-looking thing and I should definitely have it looked at; when I asked about his friend he told me she had passed
away from malignant melanoma. I promptly stood on the tee and hit the ball about 100 yards straight right into the
hazard. Having gone through the whole cancer thing once already, his statement really shook me up. Thinking I
already had cancer once, I was sure lightning wouldn’t strike twice, but after talking with my wife, I decided to go to
a dermatologist and get checked out.

I went to see the doctor told him my story. He showed me some pictures of what melanoma looks like, looked at my
face and said it was nothing. I told him that I had cancer before in LA and was concerned. He asked me what I did
in LA, and when I told him I was an actor he said, and I quote, “oh, so it’s a vanity thing.” I said no, it was because
a friend new someone who had a similar looking mark on her face and she had died. “I’m a doctor and your friend
is not, you believe whomever you want—your friend is wrong, that is not melanoma.”

I was very, very upset. I went to my car, and after crying a bit, called my wife and told her what he had said. (She
wanted to come over and rip his heart out.) You see with my first cancer I went through about 5 weeks of tests; doctors
telling me it was nothing; then that it might be cancer, but its not so don’t worry about it; and then they finally did a
biopsy and came in and told me I had cancer. I was floored. Needless to say my opinion of doctors, their bed-side
manner, and the whole medical profession took a severe hit. It was a joke!

We decided to get a second opinion, so I went to see Dr. Jeff Altman, a great guy and dermatologist. He agreed
that it didn’t look like melanoma and I had nothing to worry about. He said the only way to give me peace of mind
and make 100% sure was to do a biopsy. He put on his gloves and said, “Let’s do it. We’ll take a biopsy, send it to
pathology and then we’ll know for sure. The dot will be gone, and the incision should hardly be noticeable. He went
straight down like a cookie cutter, it was the shape of an eye with a little circle where the dot used to be, he sewed
me up, said I’ll know something in about 5-7 days, and that he’d give me a call.

My wife and I were going to Vegas to celebrate, you guessed it, yet another B-day, the big 40. So we went, had a
great time, came home and the day after my birthday at 7:30 am the phone rang. It was Dr. Altman telling me that
the biopsy had come back, that it was a 2nd stage melanoma, malignant and that they hadn’t clear the margins.
I had to go back in immediately to have another surgery. They did the same procedure—only now the scar was
starting to get a bit bigger.

5 days later, another call: still didn’t clear the margins. Dr. Altman told me if we didn’t clear the margins this time we
would need to go to Mayo clinic for mosh surgery. We called Mayo just in case but hoped for the best with the third
surgery. The third biopsy came back, we had cleared the margins(!) and once again I had (knock on wood) been
extremely lucky and survived something that many people had not.

Remember, the one thing I found to be true is that if a doctor tells you 30% of the people die, that means 70% live. The
mind and body are powerful things and can go a long way to healing one’s self if you maintain a positive attitude.

Yes, I am a 2-time cancer survivor and, depending on how you look at it, either very unlucky or lucky. I choose to
believe the latter. Wayne Benson
 For 16 years we have stood strong. In the face of chasing
   the quick elusive buck, and using all sorts of tactics
    within the actor marketplace, The Actors’ Network
         has remained steadfast in its philosophy.

          “Help us, help you...help all of us.”

         “Learn from the mistakes of others,
   you don’t have time to make them all yourself.”

    We are different, we are unique, and we are always
    leading the way quietly in the face of extreme odds.

We are the only performer’s business information-education
           organization, of its kind, in the world.

        “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful
       committed citizens can change the world; indeed
             it is the only thing that ever has.”
                     --Margaret Mead
