Joyce and Mike speak with Georgia Hurst as part of Lynch Syndrome Awareness Week.
Georgia Hurst is a patient advocate for those with Lynch syndrome. She is the founder of the website and blog: <a href="http://ihavelynchsyndrome.com">ihavelynchsyndrome.com</a>. She frequently writes about the emotional aspects of having Lynch syndrome, and writes for various websites and journals in order to create awareness amongst the global medical community about this hereditary cancer syndrome. Georgia is a wife and mother, and loves espresso, books, and being bossed around by her adorable dog named Sid.
What is Lynch syndrome? We will learn more from Georgia, or you can read about it on her website, or in this article from <a href="http://http://www.curetoday.com/community/georgia-hurst/2015/02/i-have-lynch-syndrome">www.curetoday.com</a>
Georgia noticed that there were several people in her family who had cancer at early ages, and several with the same cancer. This can indicate that there is something genetic predisposing family members to cancer. She delved deeper, got to a diagnosis, and kept asking questions, finding out how to protect herself and others in her family from the worst consequences of this condition.
Hear her remarkable story, the path she followed in doing her own research, and the partnerships she has developed with medical professionals to help her make progress for herself and others.

There was a common theme with some of this week's women headliners: Grace Under Fire. Monica Lewinsky took the world with her powerful TedTalk in Toronto, Mo'Ne Davis shows true sportsmanlike conduct and the art of forgiveness with her twitter bully, and Angelina Jolie undergoes another controversial surgery to minimize her risk of ovarian cancer. In the world of business, women dominated some of the most talked about headlines: Google's first female CFO Ruth Porat, Lockheed Martin Chair & CEO Marillyn Hewson & General Dynamics CEO Phebe Novakovic. Let's not forget about the world of sports- get your update on March Madness & the NCAA Women's Basketball standings, the LPGA wrapped up its JTBC Founders Cup, tennis' most colorful & trendy Miami Open & the NFL tries to explain itself again.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.
When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.
David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.
But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES
Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.
When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place.
Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people.
African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.
