    in Family

    UPDATE: This show did not air as scheduled due to technical difficulties on BlogTalkRadio. Please join MomRN next Monday, March 31st at 1 pm EST to hear these guests and many more!


    Wade Hayes, country singer and advanced colorectal cancer advocate, joins us to discuss his brand new album and song that he is launching for Colon Cancer Awareness Month—“Go Live Your Life.”


    Wade was inspired to write this deeply personal song after his oncologist told him he no longer had evidence of the disease after two bouts with colorectal cancer, a disease that impacts more than 136,000 Americans each year with about one in five having an advanced form.The song summarizes Wade’s attitude and he hopes it can inspire people going through difficult times to stay strong. The campaign will also give back to the patients who need it most: for every iTunes download of “Go Live Your Life,” a donation of a $1 (up to $50,000) will be made by Genentech to the Colon Cancer Alliance Blue Note Fund, a non-profit that supports advanced colorectal cancer patients.


    Dr. Manish Shah, an oncologist specializing in advanced colorectal cancer also joins Wade to talk about advanced colorectal cancer signs, symptoms and diagnosis.

    The History of the House of Saud: The Royal Saudi Family since 1902.

    in History

    Before the modern day reign of the Saudi Royal family which declared its throne in 1932, a young prince  at age 20 wanted to eliminate the Ottoman empire and restore rule of Al Saud who once dominated the region from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf.  He didn’t second guess his rightful birthright in the area.  His name was Abd al-Azia ibn Saud.  He crossed the desert with sixty brothers and cousins to reclaim the land.  He enlisted nomadic Bedouins, local warriors named the Ikhwan who also wanted their own version of a puritan Wahhabi Islamic state.  After the victory in 1902, Abd al-Aziz ibn Saud wanted to kill 1/3 of the army that helped him win, the Ikhwan.  He consulted the religious elite, the ulama, and got approval.  He killed the coalition that enabled him to win.   Since 1932, there has been no royal monarchy but the House of Saud and each subsequent ruler was a brother.  A few turns of betrayal or alliance have tipped the kingdom momentarily but only cost one real life 80 plus years.  Dirty deals with the U.S. have kept them in an interfacing East-West loyalty that may switch up generation to generation.


    WE ALSO HAD A CALLER FROM OKLAHOMA WHO PERSONALLY KNOWS PRINCE DARIUS RELATED TO THE SHAH OF IRAN.
