    Talk with Tenney: Special Electroshock: Cognitive Impairments and Rehabilitation

    in Current Events

    Call in (267)521-0167 9-11 PM Eastern 9/30/2015 to be part of the special series on electroshock is a crime against humanity continues.

    Loretta Wilson, Jane Rice, and other shock survivors will discuss cognitive impairment and rehabilitation after shock.

    From Loretta Wilson:

    In the year 2000 I was informed by the psychiatrist/professor of Michigan State University Dale D`Mello that I would need maintenance ECT and psych meds for the remainder of my life.

    The last electroshock was administered by D. D`Mello in/around September of 2000.

    In 2007 I began to taper off the drugs as well.  I began to lose weight (good thing because I tipped the scales at 261 lbs) and started getting healthier.  By 2009 I no longer needed my cane or handicap parking permit.

    One drug kept me working for 8 long years.  Klonopin had so affected me it took 8 years to finally be set free.  My goal to become "drug free" has become a reality this year.  I have been drug free for quite some time now.  My physical health also improved to the point I am no longer taking medications for anything except a small dose of thyroid hormone.

    Patients and Physicians Network about Kidney Cancer

    in Health

    The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida.  It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.

    This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix.  In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing.  This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.

    Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception.  He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org  In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong.  The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage.  For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems.  Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.
