Mike and Joyce speak with Berit Eberhardt, Division head for Kidney Cancer at the House of Life (Das Lebenshaus) in Germany.
Das Lebenshaus is a non-profit organization providing information and support for those affected by rare solid tumors: gastro-intestinal stromal tumors (GIST), Sarcoma, and Kidney Cancer.
Berit studied economics and worked as a project manager in a global information technology company. Her life changed when her boyfriend was diagnosed with kidney cancer. As a caregiver, Berit got in touch with Das Lebenshaus and read and learned a lot about the disease and the various possible treatments. Unfortunately, her boyfriend died just one year after his diagnosis, at the age of 39.
Half a year after his death she began a patient support group in Berlin. A few months later she became the manager of Kidney Cancer at Das Lebenshaus. She has broadened her commitment to Kidney Cancer and is an active participant in global events such as the International Kidney Cancer Coalition and the International events sponsored by the Kidney Cancer Association.

Dr. William Penzer's journey through what he came to call Cancerville began in 2005 when his 31-year-old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite being a caring and seasoned psychologist for almost forty years who helped others navigate the choppy waters of life, he was emotionally drowning in that very sea. He searched for a book to help support him during this difficult time but found none. As he learned how to adapt and cope in Cancerville, he promised himself he would write a helpful book someday to support family and friends facing that same situation.This seasoned psychologist eventually discovered how to cope better when dealing with cancer. Penzer concluded that cancer is not only a dreaded diagnosis, but a place with its own culture, customs, language, confusions.Penzer's two books "How to Cope Better When You Have Cancer" and "How To Cope Better When Someone You Love Has Cancer" will be your guide on this demanding journey. These books address not only the patient but those who care for a loved one suffering from the disease. Together, both books provide a practical, powerful, positive, and proactive way for people to face their Cancerville journey head-on and "Dam Strong!"William Penzer. Ph.D. Received his Ph.D. from New York University and has been a psychologist for 40+ years. He is the author of "Getting Back Up From an emotional Down," and You Have Choices: Overcoming Anxiety, Panic and Phobia."

Join me as I interview Dr. David Lewis as he shares his life experience in the health care system as a Family Doctor, Patient and Caregiver.
David Lewis FRCSEd, MRCGP David Lewis is a family doctor in United Kingdom. David completed medical training at Monash University and Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Postgraduate training in United Kingdom in general surgery then family medicine followed. In 1990, David was diagnosed with advanced Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was the same year his father died from lung cancer, and he married Danielle. Danielle was pregnant with their first child at the time of diagnosis. Anxious to have further children, David delayed essential treatment for the lymphoma to store sperm. This action has been vindicated because twins were born in 1994 with help of IVF; the children are among first 5000 IVF babies in UK. In 2007, David suffered a heart attack requiring emergency intervention, followed by quadruple bypass surgery. The heart surgery was successful, but a complication developed requiring further surgery in January 2008. Sadly, this operation was complicated by respiratory arrest and subsequent 5 weeks on a ventilator. Today, David works full time in National Health Service General Practice with three Partners. The practice also serves as a site for the University College London Medical School “Medicine in Community” program. The practice is in a suburban area and looks after over 6,600 people from cradle to grave. In the last couple of years David has developed an interest in promoting the use of information technology for professional development and peer support

Robin Martinez, one of the listowners (administrators) for KIDNEY-ONC, CHROMOPHOBE-RCC, and PAPILLARY-RCC, three of over 100 mailing lists provided by the Association of Cancer Online Resources (ACOR). Subscribers to our mailing lists communicate via email sent simultaneously to all members. Patients, survivors, caregivers, and professionals discuss current treatments and how to choose among them, side effects, clinical trials, where to find experienced doctors, problems of living with a long-term disease, emotional support, and much more.
In 2011 KIDNEY-ONC won grand prize for an outstanding example of use of mailing list technology from L-Soft, the company which first developed this technology 27years ago. Our memers exemplify the e-patient movement in which patients become engaged, empowered, and well-equipped partners in their own health care.
Robin's late husband was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 1988 and died from it in 1998. During her own search for information in 1997, she became one of the administrators of the KIDNEY-ONC mailing list and later its offshoots for papillary and chromophobe RCC.
She has also served as a consumer reviewer for kidney cancer grant applications to the Department of Defense. She is affiliated with Action to Cure Kidney Cancer and the International Kidney Cancer Coalition. She lives in Denver, Colorado, with her adult son.
Robin will share information about ACOR's latest initiative, SmartPatient

According to the CDC, one sexually active teenager in four already has a sexually-transmitted disease. They are growing at an epidemic rate – 10 million youths contracted an STD last year alone.
In the United States, young people (15-24) make up just over one-fourth of the sexually active population, but account for half of the 10 million cases of sexually-transmitted disease (STDs) each year, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). 46% of high school students have had sexual intercourse and are at risk for HIV and STDs. While there is a national effort to educate youth about HIV before they begin engaging in sexual activities, about one in three high school students did not use a condom during their last sexual intercourse.
Many people blame mobile technology for promoting sexual activity. There are some creative new efforts to use mobile technology to raise awareness. In the last few weeks, the Bloomberg Administration in New York City launched a controversial mobile app intended to reduce teen pregnancy called “Teens in NYC Protection+” and a judge ordered the morning after pill, Plan B, be available for females of all ages. Both are aimed at reducing pregnancy for teens and reduce STDs.
Qpid.me (www.QpidMe.com) has a new mobile technology that is doing its part to reduce the spread of STDs. “Technology is repeatedly blamed for young people having sex. We are turning that around and using technology to empower youth to make better sexual health decisions both on and offline,” said Ramin Bastani, founder and CEO of Qpid.me - a free, simple way to access and share verified STD results in a completely private, secure and unique way.
