Priya Magic of Women in Full Bloom engages in lively honest conversations with women from around the country and differnt walks of life about the in's and out's of life for us women in the transition years after menopause from 55-65.
There's much talk these days about women over 50! Have you heard about or even felt the over fifty Invisible Factor? Many of us begin to get the feeling that as we step into that over 50 age we become invisible. Lumping all women over fifty into one category is another way of the culture making us invisible.
Over fifty is a vast realm that we as women know has many nuances that are in and of themselves and entire world. The passage from the end of menopause into the early sixties is a very unique one and deserves much care and attention as any other phase of life. Just as the passage of 40-50 is unique, 50-60, 60-70, and 70-80 and on are all distinct journeys. It is time to step out of the realm of the invisible and be seen and heard for these distinctions!
Hear what your sisters are going through. Laugh, Cry, and feel the support of honest and vulnerable sharing from other real women who are facing the challenges of Relationship, Work, Family and Passions as we all move into being 'Older" women! Let's do it together and have fun with it by sharing what were are going through together.
Priya's style is engaging, intimate and offers you chance to let down and get real!

On The Curepanel Talk Show this week, we launched a new talk series on rare cancers/diseases, discussing Lynch syndrome and its Emotional implications with Megan Myers, a genetic counselor at UCSF, and Georgia Hurst and David Dubin who are Lynch syndrome survivors and advocates.
Lynch Syndrome is characterized by the inheritance of genetic defects in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2 genes, and predisposes families to developing colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer in women.
The panel discussion educated the audience about the genes linked to Lynch Syndrome and their association to other diseases, including the diagnosis, treatment and management of Lynch syndrome. In addition the panelists emphasized the importance of seeing a genetic counselor before and after testing, who can help deal with the emotionally taxing diagnosis of the disease, explain about its implications and screening measures, provide information about support groups, and also encourage other family members to get tested.
The Cure Panel Talk Show Team thanks the panelists and the audience for a very informative discussion.
For details of our upcoming shows please mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
