• ON My Way Back To You - A Caregiving Memoir

    14 JUN. 2024 · In her recently released memoir ON MY WAY BACK TO YOU, Sarah explains an universal story that was her own too, when she found herself one of 39 million Americans taking care of an ailing loved one, when her husband’s body just started shutting down and needed an immediate heart transplant.   Sarah not only shares a love story with her husband, his heroic work to heal back to good health but also tips to handle and cope while simultaneously processing, triaging and coordinating as a caregiver as a dedicated life-partner/spouse and parent. She explains how she did it all with devotion, grit and grace. This video offers a short synopsis in her own words  https://usw2.nyl.as/t1/161/8kbhriewhrmn2ep14vp7u0i5e/0/2724293a853c780eae82ce2ba7d969391fdc64ad81036a51f0e492aacb5f4709 During it all, which included long drives to clinics, concerns about pain medication, an unfounded complaint of elder care abuse, a broken hip and just so much more, Sarah remained full of gratitude as a way to combat anxiety and took away so many gifts as explained in ON MY WAY BACK TO YOU: ·         STRENGTH Being a caregiver forces you to realize you own strength·         PURPOSE You must continue to keep doing what you’re doing – it gives you much purpose even if filled with grit·         NO SUGAR COATING You can’t sugar coat – you must be accepting and vulnerable when sharing how the patient is doing and how you’re feeling and managing as a caregiver·         GIVE YOURELF SOME SPACE It also encourages you to give yourself grace and forgiveness during the most dark and challenging of moments, be kind. Take time to gather your own thoughts and emotions too.·         COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS AND SUPPORT You begin to really realize how strong a community you have both close-by and far away, if even a Zoom away·         GRATITUDE The ability to find and process gratitude becomes heightened in many ways ·         BE THERE You demonstrate and learn the simple act of showing-up and being there·         DEEPENS THE RELATIONSHIP It deepens how well you know someone·         PHYSICAL TOUCH  Just being able to hold hands or kiss on the forehead – is so much more appreciated after a loved one was ill and you were unable to be together·         HUMOR – Laughing helps as a couple when applicable·         THE GIFT OF ORGAN DONATIONS, SECOND CHANCES AND INTERCONNECTIONS Most of all, the gift of a young, healthy heart – she and her family are so thankful, despite it coming from what they must assume was a family living in tragedy and grief – but the organ donation system, is a reminder how we are all interconnected and the preciousness of LIFE – and as Sarah shares, she’s so thankful to have annoying and wonderful Ben still with her -She has an incredible amount of tips she explains extremely effectively and efficiently and says to consider ON MY WAY BACK TO YOU a primer on caregiving. It’s really a life-safer if you’re finding yourself suddenly in that role and simply not prepared.  Sarah joins Mark for a look at caregiving.
  • Still Going Strong” Stay Healthy As We Age

    14 JUN. 2024 · he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes Older Americans Month to empower older adults (ages 65 and older) to age without injury while still enjoying the hobbies and activities they love.  http://www.cdc.gov/stillgoingstrong is a national campaign from CDC raising awareness about common yet preventable injuries as we age. The campaign provides simple steps older adults and caregivers can do to improve social connectedness and prevent common injuries.  This year’s theme, Powered by Connection, organized by the Administration for Community Living, emphasizes the profound impact that meaningful relationships and social connections have on our health and well-being.  According to https://www.cdc.gov/emotional-wellbeing/social-connectedness/affect-health.htm#Reference1, maintaining strong social connections with family and friends plays a vital role in supporting independence and overall aging. https://www.cdc.gov/emotional-wellbeing/social-connectedness/affect-health.htm#Reference1 shows that social connectedness can lead to longer life, better health, and improved well-being. The Still Going Strong campaign equips older adults with tools to reduce social isolation and loneliness.  It also helps them to avoid the leading causes of unintentional injuries among older adults such as falls, motor vehicle crashes, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Older adults experiencing social isolation and loneliness have an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, dementia, and suicidal ideation.  There are steps older adults and their caregivers can take to improve social connectedness that helps to maintain their quality of life and stay independent longer. During interviews, a wellness expert and/or a CDC official would discuss: - Five ways to improve social connectedness, and why that can improve overall health/longevity. - The fact that unintentional injuries resulting from falls, accidents, or TBI are the 8th leading cause of death among older adults 65+. - How every second, an older adult falls in the U.S., and every year there are 9 million fall injuries that result in 3 million emergency dept. visits, 1 million hospitalizations, and 41,000 deaths.  - A 35% increase in fall death rates over the last decade. - Tips for being aware of and avoiding what can lead to falls and preventable injuries.

    5 JUN. 2024 · Julie Burkhart, President of Wellspring Health Access, one of the organizations behind the Wyoming District Court Case who last June successfully blocked a Wyoming law from going into effect that would have banned abortion medication in the state – released the following statement responding to a Louisiana bill lawmakers approved today that would make the state the first to categorize mifepristone and misoprostol as controlled dangerous substances, criminalizing possession of the two abortion medications: “It is appalling that Louisiana lawmakers have approved a bill recategorizing Mifepristone and Misoprostol as controlled substances in the state, especially given both drugs are used safely by hundreds of thousands of women each year to terminate their pregnancies. It is now one step closer to dangerously becoming law.   “Additionally, these drugs are not illicit or addictive drugs, and have other medical uses.  The passage of this amendment to reclassify these two safe medications as controlled substances, on the level of heroin and methamphetamine, will have a chilling effect on doctors, patients and undoubtedly adversely impact maternal health outcomes in Louisiana.  “Instead of pushing to criminalize those who are helping people access safe, legal medication abortion, the state legislature should instead focus on pressing issues that would actually benefit the well-being of those they swear an oath to represent.” Julie Burkhart is a national abortion rights leader, former senior advisor to slain Wichita-abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, and the only person in the country who has opened an abortion clinic in a state where it had been banned.

  • Fight Cancer With Science

    12 MAY. 2024 · Originally from Germany, Chris Apfel, MD, PhD, MBA is a physician and clinical researcher with over 100 published papers, including a six-factor clinical prediction model published in NEJM that led to the development of The Apfel Score, a clinical calculator used universally to predict the risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting, and Dr Apfel’s recruitment to the US and the University of California, San Francisco.  Dr. Apfel first began to understand the pitfalls of cancer treatment and the cancer patient’s journey when his mother became ill with ovarian cancer. Despite having received the recommended therapies, she ultimately lost a very painful battle. When his father was later diagnosed with lung cancer, he opted to forego any therapy after having witnessed his wife’s ordeal, and subsequently succumbed to the disease.Driven to find more effective therapies for cancer patients, Dr. Apfel left the clinical department at UCSF, received an MBA from Wharton to complement his scientific education, and ultimately founded SageMedic Corp., a visionary biotech company based in Redwood City, California that has developed a groundbreakingapproach to cancer care called the SAGE Oncotest™.Few people realize that only about 30% of late-stage cancer patients benefit from the first line of chemotherapy prescribed under the current standard of care. Nearly 70% have no objective response, which means that cancer therapy remains disproportionately hit or miss despite the truly impressive advances that have been made in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Creating a multiplicity of live, 3-D microtumor replicates of a patient’s cancer tissue to identify tumor resistance to standard of care therapies, the SAGE Oncotest guides the oncologist to select the most effective therapy, more than doubling the patient’s current chances of receiving the most effective treatment. In cases where therapeutic options that fall with NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) guidelines have proven to be insufficient or the outcome is in question, the assay panel may go beyond the standard of care to test repurposed drugs that are FDA-approved for different indications but have proven to be effective against cancer in select cases. Results are delivered within 7-10 days. About SageMedic:SageMedic is a registered California lab that is fully accredited in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) by the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation (COLA) and Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

  • Female Business Owner Ensures “Reproductive Freedom” for All-Female Staff

    25 ABR. 2024 · According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in five couples in the U.S. struggles with some form of infertility. The biggest roadblock for most of them to start on the path of parenthood is the high cost of fertility treatments.  To ease that financial burden and help those seeking to start a family achieve success, Brooke Goff, founder and president of Goff Law Group in Connecticut, has pledged $430,000.00 to offset the massive expense of the fertility process.  The enhanced benefit is a hot topic given the recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling on “fetal personhoods” and the uncertain future of the procedure.“I knew at a young age that I wanted to have a family, yet I also knew that as a gay woman, I would need some assistance from science,” said Attorney Brooke Goff, owner of Goff Law Group, a personal injury law firm in Connecticut.  “In vitro fertilization fulfilled my desire to carry a child and experience the beautiful journey of pregnancy, something every woman should be entitled to if she so desires regardless of her sexuality.” That’s why in 2022, Attorney Goff began researching viable solutions and was told that only larger global companies, not small businesses, would even consider fertility health coverage.  “I was taken aback that more small businesses do not invest in their employees across the board- with family planning and creation,” she adds.  “Employees are the lifeblood of any company and if a business owner wants continued success and profitability, he or she should be investing in their employees’ family - both present and future.” Brooke visits with Mark Alyn on this episode.
