    Jack Whelan on Fighting Lymphoma

    in Health

    Diagnosed six years ago, now beating the then published life expectancy of 5-7 years of a rare incurable form of blood cancer, a lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma called Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM), Jack Whelan is determined to help in the research, care and ultimate cure of this rare cancer which affects about 1200 new patients each year.  Jack is betting on Clinical Trials.


    WM has many similarities with Multiple Myeloma and non-Hodgkins Lymphoma; many of the chemotherapies, immunotherapies and other emerging B cell malignancy targeting treatments including biologic agents are used to battle this unique, uncommon blood cancer.   


    As Waldenstroms is an orphan blood cancer, it doesn't get much attention and no government-specific funding for research and the quest for a cure. However, there is a small but effective group of patients, caregivers, physicians, researchers and other medical and pharmaceutical professionals who through the efforts of the International Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF) lead the charge in research and care of patients and caregivers living with this cancer. 


    Active volunteer/advocate with the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society, (LLS) supporter of Team in Training, Light the Night, currently supporting LLS, American Cancer Society (ACS) DFCI and others educating Massachusetts state legislators to get support for oral chemotherapy parity regulations, a move that will save all parties significant healthcare costs while providing pharmacy coverage (for pill-form chemotherapy) at the same rate for patients that would normally be covered when receiving chemotherapy in the infusion room.  


    Jack was recently featured on the cover of Cancer Today.

    Living with Multiple Myeloma

    in Health

    What does it mean to "empower" a patient? 


    Jack Aiello of San Jose, California is a leading patient-advocate in multiple myeloma. In January of 1995 Jack had a terrible backache. He was  diagnosed with multiple myeloma through a blood test.  Since that time Jack has had stem cell transplants that have brought him to remission, even if only for a short time.  Mr. Aiello's spirit remains high and to quote him "I certainly don't want anyone to feel bad for me. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be alive…have seen 2 daughters graduate with Master's and Bachelor's degrees, and my youngest son graduate from UCLA in 2006 in music education. One daughter does breast cancer research, another trains dolphins and my son teaches high school music. We've taken some wonderful family & friends vacations, and I'm getting more involved with some cancer organizations. I'm able to do volunteer work for the International Myeloma Foundation, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, all of whom provide research dollars and education programs for Multiple Myeloma."

    Arlene Weintraub: Vital Role of Dogs in Finding/Healing Cancer

    in Self Help

    Some dogs possess the remarkable ability to sniff out early stage cancerous tumors, “diagnosing” the illness in someone they love. Dogs also suffer many of the same cancers we humans suffer, such as breast cancer and lymphoma. Dogs, then, may possess some very important keys in helping us all detect, and heal cancer—in themselves and in their human companions. Arlene Weintraub shares her research, her personal journey, and her appreciation of how man’s best friend participates in finding and healing cancer.


    Dogs and humans are unique, says author Dr. Jeffrey Masson, in trusting their young with each other—across species lines! Dogs also, it turns out, share their lethal illnesses with humans. Wonderfully, we can help each other. I’m excited to hear some of the ways Arlene Weintraub has discovered dogs help humans detect and learn to heal cancer.Click here to visit Arlene Weintraub’s website!

    Back From the Brink of Death To Optimal Health

    in Health

    Guest:Tobin Blake


    Featured Book: The Healing Of Jordan Young


    Website:  http://tobinblake.com/


     With love, all things can be healed.
     Jordan Young had been dating author Tobin Blake’s daughter for two years when, days after his eighteenth birthday, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lymphoma. Within months, several rounds of chemotherapy had failed and top physicians determined that Young — now on a ventilator in the ICU — could not survive the widespread disease. But he did survive and, two years later, is cancer-free. This suspenseful narrative explores the anatomy of a miracle — the precise steps Blake took with Young on his journey back from the brink. Young’s path shows how methods based on spiritual laws can be used to transform fear, navigate the medical world, guide family and friends, and, most important, heal. It illustrates that with love, all things can be healed, hope is always justified, and nothing is impossible — no matter what the doctors tell you.


    Bio:Tobin Blake, the author of The Power of Stillness and Everyday Meditation, is a longtime student of meditation, healing, and the mind-body connection. He holds workshops on meditation and spiritual awakening and lives in Bend, Oregon. His website is
