As the author of over 40 books, Pulitzer Prize nominee James Olson, Ph.D. didn't let cancer stop him from fulfilling his role in life.
It's not surprising when Dr. Olson's book, "Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer, and History" received recognition from the Los Angeles Times as one of the best non-fiction books in America in 2002.
His recent book, "Making Cancer History" documents the rise of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
Victoria Alessandra Brown of The Perseus Foundation, joins us to discuss the fight against pet cancer. The Perseus Foundation is an animal cancer not for profit organization whose mission is to create a greater awareness of cancer in pets, encourage research in the field of comparative oncology; provide financial assistance to pet owners; work closely with pediatric oncology patients through their Pet&Pals program, and finally to create a hospitality house for cancer pets and humans.
It's understandable that sexuality may not be the primary focus for many cancer patients, at least not right away. Sexuality is an incredibly personal topic, and each person's experiences, feelings, and expectations are unique. But at some point, whether because of sexual changes, relationship issues, or difficulties with fertility, patients realize the impact of cancer on their sexuality. By learning about how your sexuality is likely to change and getting suggestions for healing, you become a partner and advocate in your own care.

Cancer is different from other illnesses.” He explains to Dr. Weizer how he was significantly “smarter,” and more intelligent since cancer. Ken is all in with this journey called cancer. He has a totally different outlook and his personality is different now. Ken said to Dr. Weizer, “we all receive different gifts, you just may not know what yours will be yet.”
Join Mark and Leanne Ernster owner of Celebrate Nutrition, a health coach and certified trainer, as they discuss how healthy eating habits and good nutrition can help patients deal with the effects of cancer and its treatment.

Patients who are well nourished may have a better prognosis (chance of recovery) and quality of life.

We’re proud to introduce Sheila Jones, a Team Martina captain, as our upcoming guest!
Team Martina is made up of friends and fans of country artist Martina McBride who want to participate in the fight against cancer. In 2011, team members from around the United States met for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at L.P. Field in Nashville in honor of Martina's song "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" and those battling cancer everywhere. Through matched donations by John and Martina McBride, the team raised over $22,000.
In December of 2011, the team was honored to assist with Operation Love, accompanied by Martina McBride, as a nationwide effort delivered Christmas stockings to over 1200 chemotherapy patients. The effort was replicated in 2012. In March of 2012, Team Martina organized the Taira Baughman Benefit Concert, together with Hope Matters (and other volunteers), to assist the cancer patient and her family with catastrophic medical expenses. The concert raised over $12,000. Most recently, Team Martina is partnering with the TJ Martell Foundation to raise money for the first ever Martina McBride & Team Martina Breast Cancer Grant. Listen in for the details on this ground-breaking effort, as well as other ways that Team Martina is making a world of difference in the fight against cancer.
The team is led by volunteer captains Sheila Jones of Alabama, Amy Schmidlein of Georgia, and by Tracy Weaver of Tennessee, Director of Fan Relations for Martina McBride.

Have you considered the possibility that your diet may be one of the causes of this diagnosis?

Get the scoop on prostate cancer and milk on this week's Kick Cancer In The Can™ Weekly Quick Tip. You'll also get simple steps to protect yourself - or to overcome prostate cancer if you've already been diagnosed.
