Here at Because Hope Matters Radio, we often talk about the integral part nurses play in helping patients heal and connecting with their caregivers. CURE Magazine takes the time to recognize exemplary oncology nurses through an "Extraordinary Healer Award." The annual recognition attracts hundreds of essay submissions from patients, survivors, and caregivers across the nation.
We're thrilled to provide another spotlight for CURE's recent award winner, Cindi Cantril. Essayist, Ann Tallman, wrote about her journey as a breast cancer survivor. Her portrayal of Cantril's care through diagnosis, surgery and treatment caught the attention of Kathy LaTour, editor-at-large at CURE Magazine. The giving, nurturing, and inspiring nature embedded in Cantril's fiber goes above and beyond. She created peer-to-peer support for patients; the "WINGS" Program helps women with all types of cancer, and a secondary WINGMEN group helps men. Cantril's drive to provide healing programs doesn't stop there; she also operates women's cancer retreats and Equine therapy.
Among more than 750 of her peers and guest speaker, actor, producer, director and best-selling author Rob Lowe, and the cancer care community, Cantril received the distinguished award. She has provided more than 40 years of research, clinical care, program development and leadership in oncology nursing care. She has published over a dozen articles and authored several chapters of Building Legacy - Voices of Oncology Nurses. Cantril also received the Oncology Nursing Society's Distinguished Service Award in 2010, among other honors on her career path.
Join us for our quarterly feature with Kathy LaTour, as we delve into the heart of oncology nursing and go above and beyond an ordinary care-watch.
Many of us fail to see the humor (or often the irony) in life's experiences. In this context, irony is incongruity between what actually happens and what might be expected to happen, especially when this disparity is absurd or laughable. If we take the time, we find that life is full of such moments. Now that the event is distant and the pain has subsided, thinking about such experiences can make us smile. It turns out that such reflection is a valuable practice. Medical science tells us that if we take life too seriously we will have physical and emotional problems. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discus the importance of ‘lightening up’ as we pursue enlightenment. The recent passing of Robin Williams has left a void in many of our lives because of his gift of laughter. His loss is a reminder that sometimes we have to ‘carry’ the torch of laughter for ourselves. This should be a fun show!
Some speakers are reluctant to use humor in their speeches. They fear that they won't get a laugh and will feel embarrassed. Some say that they don't feel like they can be funny. We believe that anyone can learn to develop their sense of humor and use it in their speaking. It is a valuable tool that helps to relax an audience and will make them feel more comfortable with you as the speaker. Humor can also illustrate a point you are making and make your talk more memorable. It breaks down barriers and will make your audience more receptive to your ideas. When people laugh, they are able to relax and they derive more value. The entertainment factor is enough reason to develop humor in your speaking. During this show we will talk about how to use humor effectively.
Join Sam and Diane as they talk about all things typical to life, love and the pursuit of happiness with an ample dose of laughter. So pull up a chair, pour a drink and enjoy another episode of The Rich Life.

Chandler, AZ – As our current approach to healthcare has oriented itself more toward the bottom line, its initial intention has been lost. There’s a need for a new approach that brings faith back into the way we treat patients.
Sharon Stanton is the founder and manager of Dignity Health’s Center for Faith Health Ministries, which seeks to integrate faith and a belief in a creator into our approach to healthcare.
“This work of Faith Health Ministry is multi-faith movement that is faith-based and community-centered,” says Stanton. "We provide professional nurses with mentoring, bonding and direction. We seek to instill a vision and mission of healing brokenness through incorporating a team of trained lay health ministers to foster engagement with faith community members."
Like traditional nursing, Faith Community Nursing is focused on the intentional care of the spirit. What makes this specialty different is the conscious partnering of health issues with the faith of the patient and patient’s family. A faith community nurse seeks to foster physical, emotional, spiritual, and social harmony leading to healthy and healing relationships with God, family, faith communities, culture and creation.
According to Stanton, if you have a faith community and a health system bonded in a covenant, an individual who needs acute or urgent care attention can return to their community in a seamless transition.
“This isn’t about nursing,” explains Stanton. “It’s about raising the consciousness of a congregation to understand they have an accountability to be healthier in all aspects of life. We take the practice of nursing and integrate it with ministry to heal a person or community that is broken. If we do this right, we will impact American healthcare for generations.”
