Thompson and Makekau collaborate on articles honoring military families for TIME’s Battleland Blog, moderated by Thompson. Makekau created Because Hope Matters Radio, together with Rob Harris to highlight organizations involved in military family matters, cancer and Alzheimer’s research, plus caregiver tools and tips.
Join the conversation as we celebrate an evening of hope with author, speaker and blogger, Tami Boehmer.
Five years into being cancer-free, Tami Boehmer was suddenly faced with a recurrence of breast cancer. Equipped with expertise in Public Relations and an unwavering spirit to beat the odds, Tami began an incredible journey of searching for “miracle survivors.”
Through countless hours of research and survivor interviews, she gained strength and courage to challenge medical predictions. Facing her fears head-on helped her combat negative thinking and view cancer as a catalyst rather than a sentence.
On May 20th at 7PM EDT, we’ll highlight Tami’s story of survivorship – bringing our listeners appreciation, discovery and hope. We’ll delve inside the pages of her book, From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds, while celebrating her determination to fulfill a greater purpose in life.
Visit Tami before and after the show on her site. There you'll find a wealth of information, inspiration, events, and a look inside her exceptional book. http://www.tamiboehmer.com/
Join us on March 25th at 7PM as we discuss the sensitive topics of death and loss. Though not easily talked about, they are events that all of us must eventually face. Children experience all the same emotions as adults; yet they may lack the vocabulary to put it into words. Helping children and adults adequately express their feelings is vital to finding comfort and hope when a loved one dies.
Guests for our round-table discussion will include Krista Schueler (Account Executive) and Jennifer Gilbert (Social Worker) from Emerald Hospice & Gentiva Healthcare. Topics will range from the facts and myths surrounding hospice care to the role of hospice with patients and families, and how to help the caregiver. Bereavement support groups will also be discussed, with special emphasis on resources to help children cope before, during and after losing a loved one.
We welcome listeners to call in with comments and questions during the episode. Explore additional resources at:

Join us on May 13th at 7PM EDT for an intensive round-table discussion with top researchers from the Catholic University of America and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. When Mom Goes to War there is a ripple effect that is seen beyond the battlefield. Thanks to a specialized research team comprised of doctorally-prepared active duty, retired Army nurses, a military spouse, a Navy psychiatrist and some doctoral students, important insight is being gained about successful and unsuccessful strategies used to maintain relationship between military mother and child, as well as understanding of the child's perception ---through a mother's eyes.

Our guest, Peter van Dernoot, Founder of The Children’s Treehouse Foundation has made it his life mission to significantly reduce the stress and burden of dealing with cancer. When a parent hears the words “you have cancer,” it can be difficult enough to wrap his or her own head around the diagnosis – let alone explain it to a child.
Founder, Peter van Dernoot believes that every child whose parent is diagnosed with cancer should be given early tools and emotional support to cope. Through workshops around the world, The Children’s Treehouse Foundation provides cancer centers and hospitals with professional training; their CLIMB® Program helps normalize feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear and anger. Professionals, families and children receive tools that support, empower, and celebrate the fact that Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery (CLIMB).
Join us Monday, April 15 at 7PM EDT, as we hear the story behind this incredible program, making a difference in children’s lives since 2001. Based in Denver, Colorado, The Children’s Treehouse Foundation is the nation’s only non-profit organization providing hospital-based, cancer-focused, psychosocial intervention training and programming – specifically dedicated to improving the emotional health of children whose parents have cancer.

Join us on April 1 at 7PM EST for this special episode of heroism. In a passionate discussion about taking care of our nation’s heroes, Sam Houston will underscore issues facing veterans—young and old. As former commander of Chapter 811 Order of the Purple Heart, he’s now committing his time and energy to helping aging soldiers, while continuing to advise wounded active duty service members.
Sam served in the U.S. Army from 1964 –1972 and was wounded in action while serving with the 5 Special Forces Group, Military Assistance Command Vietnam, Special Operations Group, Command and Control Central (MACVSOG – CCC) on May 6, 1970 in the Republic of Vietnam. Sam is a recipient of the Purple Heart, Army Commendation Medal, Combat Infantryman’s Badge, RVN Cross of Gallantry, and the RVN Wound Medal.
Sam returned to civilian life after being discharged from the Army and graduated from the City University of New York. He went on to work for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Prisons, receiving the highest award given by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney Generals’ Award for Heroism, before retirement.
With the US Army standing to lose 200,000 soldiers and $800 billion worth of cuts plus sequestration (an additional $500 billion in cuts) – that trickles down to a huge impact on training, benefits and more. Nearly all the troops afflicted with both ailments [PTSD and TBI] remain under the VA’s care after four years of care; adding to an already strained VA Health System, with veterans comprising a large segment of the aging population. Join our live-chat and call-in for “Caring for our Nation’s Heroes—Beyond the War.”
