Do No Harm June 16 2017

Having lived long enough to have experienced discrimination against women many, many times in our lives a fire was kindled in us to help women achieve independence and empowerment in their lives.

How People Grieve is as Unique as Their Fingerprint May 25 2017

You know, so many times we hear of a cancer survivor who, despite all the fighting and drugs and non-traditional treatments, succumbs to this horrid disease. We are glad she/he are out of their pain and anxiety, but feel so badly for their families. A young woman I followed on her blog, Mandi Hudson, passed away about a month ago from metastatic breast cancer.  She had not celebrated her 40th...

"It" Is What You Make "It" May 01 2017

Thinking about writing a blog and actually doing it are two different things. I have been thinking about it for years and now I am ready to start. Being in the business I have been in since 2003 when the crazy idea of starting another business came to my sisters and me, has afforded me the introduction and acquaintance of many hundreds of interesting people, mostly women, but men too....

Ann explains how important it is for cancer patients to do...

But a peaceful world is an oxymoron these days. The news...

There are people who say what I want to say in a more interesting way. Hopefully you will find them informative, factual, inspiring, emotional, and yes, even a bit humorous!...

Casual Healing Threads Video Testimonial by Hans Rueffert, May 12 2014

Transcription: Hey folks. My name is Hans Rueffert.  I am a stomach cancer patient at MD Anderson right now, about to have a total gastrectomy. One of the worst things about being in the hospital is being uncomfortable, especially with those awful robes they give you before and after surgery.  You know, they tie in the back and they're open in the back so you have to wear two of...
