                                   — 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, 2005. They all attend the event annually.

Why we are 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
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.” 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
