Diagnosed six years ago, now beating the then published life expectancy of 5-7 years of a rare incurable form of blood cancer, a lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma called Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM), Jack Whelan is determined to help in the research, care and ultimate cure of this rare cancer which affects about 1200 new patients each year. Jack is betting on Clinical Trials.
WM has many similarities with Multiple Myeloma and non-Hodgkins Lymphoma; many of the chemotherapies, immunotherapies and other emerging B cell malignancy targeting treatments including biologic agents are used to battle this unique, uncommon blood cancer.
As Waldenstroms is an orphan blood cancer, it doesn't get much attention and no government-specific funding for research and the quest for a cure. However, there is a small but effective group of patients, caregivers, physicians, researchers and other medical and pharmaceutical professionals who through the efforts of the International Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF) lead the charge in research and care of patients and caregivers living with this cancer.
Active volunteer/advocate with the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society, (LLS) supporter of Team in Training, Light the Night, currently supporting LLS, American Cancer Society (ACS) DFCI and others educating Massachusetts state legislators to get support for oral chemotherapy parity regulations, a move that will save all parties significant healthcare costs while providing pharmacy coverage (for pill-form chemotherapy) at the same rate for patients that would normally be covered when receiving chemotherapy in the infusion room.
Jack was recently featured on the cover of Cancer Today.

Tracey McLean is the CEO of Adyme Enterprise. Tracey McLean is an author, dancer, songwriter, script writer, novel writer, entertainment manager,and is a Sag actress. Satoya Shvette:It took me some time to realize that I too was experiencing cases of domestic violence in my relationship with a man I had been with for 4+ years. At the time I made excuses, took the blame and ignored all the signs. I had no one to talk to, & thought it would either get better or not happen anymore. It first started off as verbal and emotional. Never felt so low, unappreciated & un beautiful in my life. Paulyana Martin: I am a living witness due to Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer! I want to share my story to help other teenagers/women that we are beautiful and we don't need a man to succeed in life! My story begins when I was young around the age of 11-12 I sexually abuse (rape) by my own step brother. No matter how much I spoke about what was happening to me my mother didn't believe me! I took it upon myself to get tested! Women don't take your health for granted Breast Cancer. Lacha Mitchell: I'm a recurrent Breast Cancer survivor. I was initially diagnosed in 09/2003 at the age of 32 years old and then again at the age of 33 in 06/2004. Undergoing chemotherapy for stage one cancer that was self detected during a breast exam- was supposedly the easy fix. Once treatment began, additional biopsies, my daughter who was ten years old at the time was diagnosed with stage 3B Hodgkins Lymphoma and Paraneoplastic Syndrome. She was near death and the cancer had spread. It's thirteen years later and I'm a living testimony, twelve years for my daughter who is now twenty-one years old. We still are dealing with long term effects of the disease but we are still standing by the grace of God.

I'm Chelsea Szabo, and I battled death three times before reaching the age of twenty. I survived two different types of cancer (Melanoma and Hodgkin's lymphoma) and a serious automobile accident.
These experiences gave me a sense of urgency to embrace life to the fullest, and provided the personal motto: Keep going until you get what you want, and then repeat.
And that's just what I did after graduating with a B.S. in Marketing from West Chester University of Pennsylvania—I went after what I thought I wanted. I moved to Los Angeles and quickly jumped into the local advertising scene and immersed myself in a variety of professional and philanthropic opportunities.
So, I left what was familiar to find what was authentic. I finally found it when I became a Certified Professional Coach. The one thing that stayed consistent during this transition was my voice. In order to get what I wanted, I had to voice it again, and again, and again, even when it sounded crazy to others.
That's the root of my private coaching practice, Verbal Courage. As a Coach, I blend my passion for helping others with the strong belief that change can't happen without a confident voice. I now wake up completely fulfilled as my days are dedicated to guiding others to speak with Verbal Courage. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing them learn to trust their intuition, and successfully initiate even the most difficult conversations to keep them on track to get what they truly want.
