    Jack Whelan on Fighting Lymphoma

    in Health

    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.

    32 For 32: Kansas City Chiefs

    in Sports

    The Kansas City Chiefs were yet another strange team in 2014, going from 0-2 to 7-3, then laying an egg to Oakland (even though they scored 20 points) & ultimately falling out of the AFC playoff picture. But the big story was safety Eric Berry's health. After that loss to the Raiders, he received an X-ray which revealed a mass in his chest believed to be lymphoma. He was placed on the non-football illness list, ending his season. A month later, Berry was confirmed to have Hodgskin's lymphoma. He has begun treatment & many of us are wishing him a strong recovery. My prayers have been & will be w/ him during this time. The Chiefs have made some moves during the off-season, bringing in free agents such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (reuniting w/ Jason Avant from Philadelphia) & safety Tyvon Branch. The pressure continues to be on head coach Andy Reid. He's been expected to make a Super Bowl run w/ this team & that hasn't happened. & he has yet to win a Super Bowl, pinning him on the list of one of the greatest coaches in league history to not accomplish the feat. Some fans have started to lost patience. Something's gotta give, right? I hope for the sake of Reid that this team finally turns to corner in 2015. It's been a long time coming since the franchise's last Super Bowl triumph (Super Bowl III), but Arrowhead remains one of the toughest places to play of opponents & as long as you have great fans supporting your team, you'll always have a shot to accomplish wins, divison titles, & maybe even a Lombardi trophy. This team still has work to do, but it looks like they're heading in the right direction. How far can & will they go? We'll discuss that as well as Eric Berry in our next installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Friday evening @ 6:30pm on Blog Talk Radio. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.

    The Ndustry Talks With Actress, Lourdes Colon!

    in Entertainment

    This week on The Ndustry... Hosts Akia Uwanda and Nicole Lester talk with a remarkable woman and notable actress, Lourdes Colon!


    Lourdes has made a notable impression as a versatile actress. This statuesque Emmy nominated beauty starred in the CBS’ hit series Without A Trace, by playing Anna Rodriguez. She was the host on the TV show series "The Movie Time Showcase" on The Omni Broadcasting Network. She also appeared on The District, the TV series The Women of Brewster Place, and films like The Kiss, Blood Oranges, Time Served, A Fine Line, The Killer Within, Expandable, and Amor Brujo. She was a remarkable working actress until she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which led her through her battle with cancer. Being holistic herself, she wanted to try a unconventional method of fighting cancer that didn’t require radiation or chemotherapy, so she created a her own unique option called “Option C.” She and her husband documented her whole emotional process and called it Create Option c: My Journey Through Cancer. Through donations, she was able to afford an holistic center that helps cancer patients battle this horrendous disease through natural medicine, however her journey was far from easy.


    Lourdes felt that the current system for treating cancer was flawed and too harsh on the human body that it does more harm than good. After watching the people she cared most about in her life disintegrate before her eyes, she became an advocate for her option, because she survived cancer by implementing her own process. With the help of Esai Morales, Lourdes is able to spread her news globally through her documentary.

    How Chanting and Soul Healing Can Improve Your Health with Master Roger Givens

    in Spirituality

    Join Master Roger as he teaches how soul healing and chanting can have a powerful impact on your health.


    Master Roger, his lovely wife Diane and their dog Cooper live in picturesque Salem Oregon. He teaches every Thursday evening at Master Sha's Soul Healing Group Oregon, located in NE Portland near the Franz Bakery.


    Please visit Master Roger's blog http://soulhealingforweightloss.blogspot.com/p/about-master-roger-givens.html where he posts a weekly chanting session to help us with our weight adjustment journey.


    I met Master Sha on May 31, 2005 on the way to see my cardiologist for my annual check-up. I had a 5-vessel heart bypass surgery 7 years earlier and had been experiencing heart-related symptoms again. While at the seminar, Master Sha asked if anyone had cancer and I raised my hand. Master Sha performed a Soul Operation on me to remove the blockages in my body. I felt great, and following a stress test a few days later, my doctor said my heart never looked better. The pre-cancerous spots around my mouth were gone within two weeks. I had a lymphoma removed just before meeting Master Sha and even though the Doctor said the tests showed he didn’t get it all it has never returned. 


    Many members of my family have also experienced healing from Master Sha's Soul Healing techniques. My wife Diane and our daughter Sharon are both in remission from Lupis, a chronic, autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. Sharon had also experienced 3 miscarriages until after receiving a special blessing from Master Sha resulted in the birth of our darling 7 year old grandaughter Lily Ann.
