    According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) each year an estimated 14 million people around the world learn they have some form of cancer. He/She is someone's son, daugher, husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, cousin, uncle, aunt, grandfather, grandmother and friend. Once the diagnosis is received life because a whirlwind of doctors' appointment, treatments, co-pays, and care management. 

    Duane Vancil joins the Travel Talk hosts to share the importance of creating memories during this time and the purpose of the Jennifer Wynn Vancil Cancer Foundation, named in honor of his wife. 

    "While this foundation is named in honor of my wife it is meant to be so much more. It is to be a vehicle to help as many families as possible, to allow families to enjoy a well deserved break from cancer; to receive a cool glass of water in the middle of their desert that is cluttered with surgeries, trials, treatments, doctor visits and mounting medical bills in addition to the responsibilities of parenting and work. However, for those of you who are not familiar with “the story” of Jennifer, you can go to www.jennifervancil.com. But rest assured that this foundation is about the thousands of stories that we, together, will help make as we help families build memories that will last for a lifetime! Have a memory making day."

    There are many reasons why those with a wanderlust spirit love to travel. For the co-hosts of Travel Talk it is to marvel at the natural beauty, to experience local cuisine and immerse themself into the culture and history of a particular destination. However, pollution, plastics, toxins, chemicals and poaching are having devastating effects on our eco-system. For example, research now suggests the chemical oxybenzone found in most sunscreen causes coral bleaching.

    Los Angeles native Tiffany Paige is the host of "Green with Tiffany" a blog and webisode series educating people on how they can make simple modifications to their daily routine to reduce their carbon footprint. Ms. Paige will share simple eco-friendly travel tips we can all implement.

    Transformed Traveler presents Airplane Etiquette

    in Lifestyle

    The Expedia 2015 Airplane Etiquette Study just released this month (November) found that 59% of Americans believe “Inattentive Parents” – parents who exhibit little or no control over their children – are the 2nd most aggravating co-passengers.


    The number 1 most aggravating? “Rear Seat Kickers.” And since kids tend to be the biggest culprits, parents are feeling the pressure here, too, when it comes to travelling.Additionally, social shaming has become a reality, according to the survey. A quick glance at #UnrulyKids and you’ll find many of the social media posts originate from airports and airplanes.But with holiday family vacations creating some of the best memories for children and their parents, what can we do to make the travel experience awesome for all involved?

    Live via satellite from Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Travel Expert (and mother of four) Sarah Gavin is available to discuss: How parents can enhance their attentiveness while on the road during the busiest travel season of the year. What her personal survey of children revealed about how parents change on vacation.Additional findings from the 2015 Airplane Etiquette Study

    We heard you did a study about the most annoying people on planes.  Who came in as most annoying and what to do you do this holiday if you’re stuck next to them? Or if you’re one of them?

    That looks like the Disney castle behind you. What’s new at Disney this holiday season? How can families save money this holiday?  Do you have any tips and tricks on when to buy, when to travel. Any other news in advance of  the holiday travel season?Where can our viewers for go for more information?
