HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 3 SBDC Kidney Disease Awareness event planned Submitted by SBDClSi/ver City On September 18 Western New Mexico University and Gila Regional Medical Center are partnering to raise awareness of the epidemic proportion of New Mexicans who unknowingly are suffering from diabetes and the reality of the end on dialysis. Lanny Olson, Holiday Inn Expres owner and kidney dialysis patient says, "I encour- age you to join us in bringing awareness to southwest New Mexico. Join in the ride, get screened, learn about new e-tools, speak with Shad, or donate to his foundation." The reason? New Mexico, Hawaii and Washington, D.C. are listed as the 3 "worst" states suf- fering an epidemic of chronic kidney disease leading to kidney failure and a life on dialysis- the end result of undiagnosed diabe- tes. Shad Ireland, the well-known tri-athlete and nation-wide spokesperson for kidney disease patients, is coming to Silver City to deliver his message. Shad suf- fered kidney failure at 10 years of age, followed by 3 rejected kidney transplants. He almost gave up on life but with encour- agement he chose to focus on liv- ing and even though on dialysis for 30 years, he fulfilled his dream of becoming an athlete. Following is the schedule of events for September 18.

Rivers, Sr. was born on November 2, 1929, and passed away on August 26, 2011. Ed was born to Bertha Rivers (later Brodie) of Buckeye, AZ. He grew up on the family dairy farm and joined the Army when he was 17, where he was stationed in Ko- rea. After returning home he met Loretta Edward E. Killion and they mar- Rivers, St. ried on November 1, 1950. They were blessed with 3 daughters (Patsy, Sheila, and Sally) and 3 sons (Larry, David, and Edward Jr.) He is survived by his broth- ers, Max Brodie, Robert Brodie and h.arles Brodie; sisfers Aliene sons Larry Rivers and Eddy Riv- ers Jr.; daughters Patricia Rivers, Sally Benner and Sheila Clark; 12 grandchildren and 10 great- grandchildren. Ed made a living as a large equipment operator for a number of years doing work on Thatcher Dam, Fool's Hollow Lake, Vanar Wash, and Interstate 10 through Texas Canyon. However, farm- ing was his passion and in 1959 he moved to Rodeo with" his Uncle Ernie Rothpletz, where he leased, cleared and started farm- ing land at the Cienega. From that time on, Ed knew that Ro- deo was his home. In the late 70's with all his hard, dedicated work and the help of hi S family, he was farming over 1,000 acres of cot- ton and owned the gin in Rodeo. Over the years he kept up farm- ing operations and with the help of his children they raised water- melons, cotton, chili, alfalfa, pe- cans and various other crops. Ed loved running equipment, whether it was farming or mov- ing dirt. Ed will always be remem- bered as a hard worker who pro- vided for his family. It was Ed's habit to offer shelter and assistance to those in need as well. Once he began attending the Rodeo Baptist Mis- sion, Ed became dedi- cated to his congregation and was active in intro- ducing new members. A man of few words, his charitable heart spoke what words never could to those who were blessed enough to know him He will be forever in the hearts of those who loved him. Until we meet again, may he walk in the green pastures of Heaven.
