    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: The Great Sabotage

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  You're progressing through treatment. You've turned the corner. You see the end of the treatment road on the horizon. The end of the safety of the cocoon is near. Your tool kit is stocked. It's now about repetition, practice, and exercising your new or readjusted attitutude and behaviors. Then BOOM (or BAM), you blow it up. You "engineer" a relapse. You SABOTAGE yourself, and the process. Why do we do this to ourselves?!?

    in Health

    Is high risk disease progress, the key to a cure for all myeloma patients? And what can researchers do to get new therapies to work for more than 30% of relapsed patients? Multiple myeloma has many different treatment options and the path patients' follow is different depending on response. In fact in some cases a disease that starts out as low risk may one day progress to high risk. That is why the treatments for these higher risk diseases is so important. A new therapy would need to show efficacy across different lines of therapy. CureTalks' myeloma panel is talking to Dr. Ola Landgren on high risk disease, progress, and cure. 

  • Super Cop helps SUPER HERO FIGHT CANCER

    in Culture

    Please join host Frankie Picasso for a very special show on Thursday August 27th when my guest is Police Constable Gareth Ward who is campaigning diligently to help his super hero buddy, 5 year old Luke Brewer and family fly to America where Luke will be treated for cancer in October.


    Luke was recently diagnosed with Rabdomysocoma, a type of sarcoma that attacks connective tissue and usually hits children 1 to 5 years old.  As treatment is unavailable in the UK, Luke and his family need to come to the USA and the course of therapy will take 7 weeks.


    Gareth hopes to raise enough to bring the family for treatment and have a little left over to send Luke to Disneyland as a special treat for the brave little man.  


    To date, Gareth has been able to raise a little over £1000, but this is still a long way off the target of £2000 he needs.


    In addition to the Go Fund ME site:     http://gofundme.com/lukethesuperhero     Gareth is also planning to raise money by participating in a 9bar9x9 running event in Luke’s name. This is an 81km endurance run held in Guildford, Kent, UK, on 10 October and Gareth will be running it in full police gear weighing approximately 42 lbs. In addition to all of this, Gareth also designed some amazing super hero wrist bands that are also a fund raiser and can be purchased on Facebook by going to https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=427589130758195&id=232219716961805


    Please join us to help raise money for Luke and CALL US to send your POSITIVE MESSAGES of LOVE to Luke who I know will listen to the show and love to hear your words of encouragement.
