    I Have Seen God in Medical Missions with Dr. Klaus-Dieter John

    in Christianity

    Dr. Klaus-Dieter John grew up in Germany and met and fell in love with his wife, Martina, during his term as high school class president. The two bonded over the strong call they felt to obtain medical degrees in order to serve the medical needs of the poorest of the poor.


    Dr. John began medical school in Germany, eventually completing his surgical training at Harvard and Yale in the U.S., as well as in Johannesburg, South Africa. Martina was trained in both Germany and the U.S. and is now a certified pediatrician in both countries.


    Their medical missions work took them from Ghana to Ecuador, eventually bringing them to Peru, where they helped found the ministry Diospi Suyana in August of 2002. The main goal of Diospi Suyana was to maintain an interdenominational mission hospital, which was opened in the highlands of Peru in 2005. The ministry also operates a dental clinic, a school and a children’s ministry in Curahuasi, Peru.

    The PAN Support Network with Ed Becker and Dr. Kim!

    Meet Liz Donohue, Director-Rare Disease Research at Sanford

    in Education

    Liz is the amazing, Director at CoRDS. Today we will learn what the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford (CoRDS) is doing to help people with rare disease.Liz will share important information because CoRDS is a registry that stores information on individuals affected by a rare disease to help accelerate research into rare diseases. It was developed because access to information about rare diseases presents a challenge to researchers, physicians, patients and their families.CoRDS provides a better way for researchers conducting research studies or clinical trials to search for individuals who are interested and may be able to participate in their clinical trial. The CoRDS registry also keeps individuals and families aware of the opportunities to participate in research studies or clinical trials.To help us celebrate the launch of the worlds first Cryoglobulinemia Vasculitis Organization (CVO) website Liz is joining us to educate us and help us learn more about important research opportunities.*To clarify: In reference to Mayo Clinic. Diane meant to say the one in MN is the only one of the Mayo clinics that is dealing with Cryo at this time. Not that it's the only clinic dealing with cryo.http://www.cryoglobulinemiavasculitis.org/

    Living With HOPE Guest: Mark Maginn

    in Health

    The show today will be about living with an exotic ailment called Behcet’s Disease.

    http://www.behcets.com/

    Behçet's disease is common in the Middle East, Asia, and Japan. It is rare in the United States. In Middle Eastern and Asian countries, the disease affects more men than women. In the United States, it affects more women than men. Behçet's disease tends to develop in people in their 20's or 30's, but people of all ages can develop this disease.

    Behçet's disease is an autoimmune disease that results from damage to blood vessels throughout the body, particularly veins. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks and harms the bodies' own tissues. The exact cause of Behçet's disease is unknown. Most symptoms of the disease are caused by vasculitis (an inflammation of the blood vessels).

    Inflammation is a characteristic reaction of the body to injury or disease and is marked by four signs: swelling, redness, heat, and pain. Doctors think that an autoimmune reaction may cause the blood vessels to become inflamed, but they do not know what triggers this reaction.
