In discussing creating good habits in his life, a patient told Dr. Ken Weizer, “It’s easy to say but hard to do.” Dr. Weizer had a different take on it. Listen as Dr. Weizer talks about how to help yourself do the good habits that you should do. A discussion that everyone can take something from, whether you have cancer or not.

Justin Carlisle began collecting Boy Scout cancer awareness patches about the time that his Order of the Arrow chapter issued a patch to help raise funds for the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation in Greenville, SC. Soon he discovered that several OA lodges had produced memorabilia to help find a cure for cancer and he was hooked. With his own father falling a victim to cancer he decided to write a reference guide for others Scouting memorabilia collectors who were interested in this niche. Teaming up with Brett Estrade who runs Patchtrends.com he put together a guide that has all known issues including pricing data. In this episode of the Scouting Hot Finds Radio Justin and Brett share the story of this new collectors guide. For other Scouting memorabilia collectors who have notions of writing a similar collecting resource guide Brett Estrade is willing to partner with them by offering his database of prices realized from the Boy Scout category of eBay. At the time of this episode that catalog holds over 2 million price points. cancerguide.patchtrends.com

When a person is diagnosed with cancer, they need more than just information. They need to know what questions to ask; what options they have and what choices they face. They need to know how to be heard and how to find those that will listen. When my dad was diagnosed with cancer, it took hundreds of hours to find the detailed information he needed to understand his diagnosis and make decisions about treatment - and his time was running out. We spent too much time looking and not enough time living and not having any peace. Time was wasted. Join Mark as he provides you with essential information you NEED to know after diagnosis

Bozrah, CT – According to the American Cancer Society, about one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. Indeed, with the exception of skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women.
But breast cancer today is not what it was 20 years ago. Thanks to greater awareness, early detection and advances in treatment, there are currently more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the US.
“You don’t laugh about cancer, but you can laugh in its face,” says breast cancer survivor Eileen A. Kaplan. Kaplan is a speaker, humorist, women’s wellness advocate and the author of Laughter is the Breast Medicine, an inspirational book of humor documenting Kaplan’s own journey with the disease from diagnosis to bilateral mastectomy.
“I’ve always taken things and made them silly. It’s just the way I am. I love to laugh,” says Kaplan. “Being diagnosed with breast cancer is difficult enough, so my hope for Laughter is the Breast Medicine is for people to find one thing in my journey they can relate to that can make them smile or laugh.”
As an inspirational speaker and cancer awareness advocate, Kaplan encourages women to make the necessary lifestyle changes to help minimize their risk for all types of cancer.
“Just because you’ve been diagnosed with cancer doesn’t mean you’re going to die,” says Kaplan. “So this has been my mantra, awakening people to the fact that you are in control. There is a ‘CAN’ in cancer.”
They say, "Honesty is the best policy." This is true in the cancer journey as well. Being honest with your doctor, your doctor being honest with you, and being honest with yourself are all very important when going through a traumatic experience. Join Dr. Ken Weizer as he shares some thoughts on honesty in the cancer dance.
