America's smaller communities and "mom & pop" businesses have taken it on the chin in the last few years. But there are some savvy folks with innovative ideas, working together to renovate and revitalize the traditional American "Main Street". 

So many of our listeners have recently experienced the protracted illness and eventual passing of friends and loved ones. When we asked for show topic ideas, many have suggested we talk to experts on how to negotiate the turbulent times, and confusing healthcare system, to provide the highest quality of life for those we love who are dealing with long-term diseases. It's a difficult subject matter, but we have two very knowledgeable, passionate and empathetic guests today. Dr Karin Porter-Williamson, MD, one of Kansas City's top Palliative Care & Hospice physicians, and Cheryl Daugherty, RN, who has over three decades of experience in nursing, most of it with critically ill patients and families - and an expert at patient and family education. 

If you have faced, or are facing a loved one with a long-term disease, or nearing the end of life, you will want to hear the caring and crucial advice from these experts. 

And our first-hand review of the party of the year - Kansas City CARE Clinic?'s "Bloom" fundraiser!

All on Everyday KC? today at 10:00 - and on podcast any time after.
