SORT BY Relevancy
I have done several shows about Lymphedema and the grassroots efforts to get the Lymphedema Treatment Bill passed. This one came from an original airing of 5/1/10.
"Back in March, we had a show introducting you to the HR 4662 which involves the improvement for health care costs for lymphedema patients. Please join us again today to learn what has been done, what you can do, and what this means to you if you (or someone you know) has lymphedema. We need to get this bill passed in this year's legislation session. We will have Jennifer and Jenny on our show, as well as some other pertinent people that can add more to enlighten about this very important bill." http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/01/beyond-words-live--understanding-hb-4662
BEYOND WORDS LIVE is designed as a platform for survivors to tell their own stories in their own words.

Dr. Stanley Rockson (of Stanford University Medical School) states that: "Lymphedema is a common disease. Approximately 10 million Americans, for example, have lymphedema secondary to breast and pelvic cancer therapy, recurrent infections, injuries, or vascular surgery." (2010) Imagine, if there were approximately 10 million Americans then, how many more there are now in 2014 (knowing that there is no cure for it as it stands to date)?
For many years, I had key advocates come on my show to discuss various cases and, especially, the aspects of advocating in the legislature. On January 27th, Heather Ferguson (one of those advocates) will come on my show to discuss some updates on those legislative issues being presented.
Today, though, I will open the mic up to patients, advocates, and caregivers especially to tell their stories on how Lymphedema has affected them. We will then share this with legislators to personally hear the many stories typical to illustrate the pervasiveness of this condition.
Please mark your calendars and join us on March 6th at 10a CST to share and/or be better informed about these issues.
A frank discussion with family members of departed Dialysis Patients about the level of care provided to their loved one. Additionally the feeling of a lack of basic information on the care of the family member and how they felt out of the loop during the Dialysis process and care for their loved one will be covered.
The current problem with overworked and under trained technician’s which has led to patient injury and in some cases patient deaths needs to be addressed and changes legislated.
There are too many cases of patients being terminated from care for unjust causes; then blackballed from care by other clinics within the same company.

Our August On-Air Myeloma Support Group is discussing ways that patients and caregivers can help boost myeloma research. We have Pat Killingsworth lead the meeting with our guest for the month, Jenny Ahlstrom.
Jenny Ahlstrom was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2010. After treatment, she wanted to be prepared with a plan of action in case of relapse. She learned how few patients participate in clinical trials and started mPatient Myeloma Radio as a tool to help her and others learn about the latest in myeloma research. She is also the founder of the Myeloma Crowd site and the CrowdCare Foundation. She is a wife to a busy entrepreneur and investor and is the mother of 6 children. Prior to her favorite job as a mom, she worked for IBM as a systems engineer and marketing representative.

Tiffany Howe was born with Primary Congenital Lymphedema (Milroy’s Disease). After 27 years of struggling with this ailment, she was given a choice of losing her left leg or undergoing the Charles Debulking procedure. The choice was difficult and very challenging to make. She chose the Charles Debulking procedure and could not have guessed the life-changing experiences which would result. Full recovery took a year and included her learning to walk again. For the next five years, Tiffany used her training as a Registered Nurse to research and study any available information about Lymphedema. Research ultimately led me to the conclusion that Lymphedema patients are in need of support for this currently incurable disease. Support includes education and advocacy. I represent Virginia as part of the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, which is a patient-centered group, raising awareness. Our mission is to get passage in Congress for the Lymphedema Treatment Act.
Come hear her story and more!

Even after warnings and expert advice from amongst the most credible legal analysts on the issue in the state, some event coordinators refuse to stop the practice. Making matters worse, some of the doctors writing these recommendations at the hotel conferences and other non- traditional forums, will not offer adequate support in court for their patients, when in need.

We're kicking off Season 15 with a bang with Dr. Roni Zeiger, former Google Chief Health Strategist and Co-Founder at SmartPatients.com. Join us for an in depth discussion about a very interesting subject for anyone, regardless of disease. Survivor spotlight on young adult ovarian cancer survivor Tracy Maxwell, author of "Being Single, with Cancer" and Founder of "Solo Survivors"
It is commonly known that cancer effects people of various genders and cultures differently, but a new survey reveals that the motivation behind cancer treatment, and therefore the courses of action that should be taken, also vary by these same gender and cultural differences.
74 % of Caucasian patients are motivated by the desire to live a healthy life
79% of African American patients are driven by faith and spirituality
84% of Hispanic patients were motivated by family responsibilities
They results varied for studies of men and women as well.
To learn more about the survey results, including gender and cultural gaps in attitude and treatment, CEO of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Gerard van Grinsven, shares his insights on the survey findings and what they mean for patients, caregivers and healthcare providers.
