Marion Behr is an accomplished visual artist, publisher, and author, and she's on a mission to help others in quite an extraordinary fashion. Tucked inside Surviving Cancer: Our Voices & Choices, she has compiled and illustrated a collection of essays, reflections, and artwork. Sifting through the compilation, readers are immersed in a sense of hope through art and story. Marion Behr provides a remarkable illustration of the hope that prevails when survivors, organizations, care teams and others align themselves as a healing force in the cancer battle, and beyond.
This timeless source book is written, in part, by cancer survivors of different ages who provide insight into personal experiences and choices -- to ease the way for new cancer patients. Doctors’ articles are arranged to correspond with the order of visits experienced by most cancer patients. Personal narrations afford a view of cancer survivors' stories across the United States and Canada and as far away as Cambodia and Israel.
Marion created the first national survey of women working from home in the 1970's and originated the concept of the Homebased Business, and then formed Women Working Home Inc. with Wendy Lazar. Together, they co-authored two editions of Women Working Home: The Homebased Business Guide and Directory, and sold fifty thousand copies.
Marion later received a Presidential Appointment to The White House Conference on Small Business and her presentations to the US Labor Department and Senate helped change laws on home based businesses.

It took Catherine (Cat) Brubaker and Dan Zimmerman 5 months and 5,300 miles to cross the USA (diagonally) on recumbent trikes. Blowouts, tumbles, and close encounters with bears and wild turkeys still left plenty of time to meet folks at the heart of our country. It also left time to get lost in one's own mind.
Cat and Dan rode to raise awareness for TBI and for Stroke, but I wonder what awareness they discovered within themsleves along their journey. And, I mean to find out. :)
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

“Your Best Friend!” (YBF)
Stacey Schieffelin, Ford model and makeup guru, successful entrepreneur and true believer in empowering women to live the life they dream, is as approachable as the girl next door. Stacey shares her knowledge about how to look and feel your beYOUtiful best every day. For Stacey, putting your best and fabYOUlous face forward is a sign of self-respect, not vanity. She believes every woman deserves to have her own customized and personalized blueprint that maps out her unique path to bold beYOUty and self-confidence. Stacey founded Models Prefer 18 years ago; an international cosmetics company that has been sold on HSN in the U.S., QVC in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. The MP brand remained the #1 color cosmetics line on QVC in the UK for more than eight years.
Beauty is a natural extension of Stacey’s fun, engaged relationship with her customers (girlfriends); best demonstrated through her Pajama’ Party at Sea Cruises. “I started out talking to women one-on-one about what makes them beYOUtiful; first on HSN and QVC, and then in our unique Pajama’ Parties at Sea, traveling the world on a cruise ship devoted to fun, beauty and empowerment. Women embraced the ideas, products and friendships we were sharing. The phrase “best friend” was voiced over and over as they described their feelings about the products and being part of our community. Without question, the perfect name for our new brand “your best friend” (ybf) came from our girlfriends!”
Stacey is on the board of directors of Fashion Group International, Count Me In and is an active member of Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD), Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Girls, Inc., American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the "oil of" the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.Essential oils do not form a distinctive category for any medical, pharmacological, or culinary purpose. They are not essential for health.
Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.
Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes. Claims for the efficacy of medical treatments, and treatment of cancers in particular, are now subject to regulation in most countries.As the use of essential oils has declined in evidence-based medicine, one must consult older textbooks for much information on their use.
Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine that claims that essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer, heated over a candle flame, or burned as incense.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_oil.

BLOODTHINNERS”-do they really thin the blood?
It has become common practice to give elderly human, baby aspirin daily for the purpose of thinning their blood.
Now what does it mean: “thinning the blood?”
How can aspirin thin the blood? Well, it does not. What we call blood thinners are medi-sins that prevent blood from coagulating.
What are the side effects of daily aspirin usage?
Stomach ulcers, intestinal bleeding, increased risk of pancreatic cancer, kidney damages, eye damages…
The benefits of blood thinning therapy taken from Dr. Mercola site;
Study Comparing Blood-Thinning Therapies to no Antithrombotic Therapy
• Participants included 279 patients who were diagnosed with heart failure that required diuretic therapy
• Participants were divided into three groups, aspirin therapy, warfarin therapy and no antithrombotic therapy
Results of the Study
• Aspirin and warfarin didn't provide the patients with any valuable health benefits
• There didn't appear to be any substantial differences of incidences of death, nonfatal heart attacks or nonfatal stroke in the three groups of the study
• Patients in the aspirin group had increased chances of experiencing serious gastrointestinal problems
• Patients in the aspirin therapy group were twice as likely as the patients in the warfarin group to face hospitalization for cardiovascular complications, particularly worsening cases of heart failure during the first 12 months following the study
If you want to thin the blood isn’t it normal that you reach for water first?
