Stacy Matseas joins Mary E., to celebrate the "Strides" made against breast cancer through the work of the American Cancer Society, "Making Strides" events. Her commitment is evident in her 10 year history of raising over a MILLION dollars for a cure.
Stacy became involved in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk as a team captain, and, fueled by the desire to strike down the feelings of helplessness and her belief in the work and mission of the Society, Stacy became one of the most successful fundraisers in history, having raised more than $1 million for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. “The first year, I raised $5,000,” Stacy said. “From there, I just remained persistent and passionate and formed a network of volunteers, supporters and teammates, and educated them about what Making Strides is about.”
Stacy’s work with the American Cancer Society isn’t limited to her involvement with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
In addition to Stacy's story, we will focus on "Chicago is gearing up for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, October 25 – Thousands of local breast cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, businesses and community members will unite at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Chicago on Saturday, October 25 at Soldier Field (Stadium Green, 1410 Museum Campus Drive)."

In that capacity, Stephany serves as the senior manager of community events for the Division.She provides vision, leadership and strategic direction to a 30-member team responsible for the Society’s top fundraising and community engagement event, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

In total, Stephany has raised more than $50 million in the fight.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it's a special honor to feature the heart-work of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Team Martina. Triple negative breast cancer is one of the most aggressive types and doesn't respond well to known treatment protocols. Specifically-targeted research is urgently needed, and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is dedicating the time, talent, and team to do it.
We'll revisit with Sheila Jones of Team Martina to hear exciting updates on the Martina McBride Breast Cancer Research Grant. The grant helped make strides in triple negative research over the last year, honoring of a teammate who died of the disease. Now, there's more potential for the grant with a "Coffee for a Cure" campaign and it's gone nationwide. The community initiative shows the impact when people come together for good.
Dr. Vandana Abramson will join us, too. She's a breast cancer physician and researcher at Vanderbilt University and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. After receiving her B.A. in English and Molecular & Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, she went to medical school at the University of Chicago. Dr. Abramson completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Harvard University's Brigham and Women's Hospital. She then went on to complete a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. She also obtained a Master's degree in Translational Research.
Dr. Abramson research focuses on early stage clinical trials of novel treatments for all types of breast cancers, and she has received grants to study triple negative breast cancer. She has received awards for her clinical and research work and is currently leading clinical trials in breast cancer, both at Vanderbilt and nationally. Don't miss this extraordinary hour of updates!

It’s almost as though Anthony Lewis love for music is ingrained in him; his love of art, somewhat hereditary. His parents were stage performers who could both sing and act. And it is apparent that neither the rhythm, nor the beat, missed Lewis.
Born in Los Angeles, CA, Lewis first realized his vocal potential at age 6. Though he shared his talent in church, singing remained a personal hobby until he and his sister took to YouTube. As interest piqued among viewers, so did Lewis’ desire to pursue his gift. And his strides are apparent. While singing for producer Donnie Scantz, he impressed industry veteran, Garnett March, and was soon signed to The Chemists. The rest is history-in-the-making as he prepares his debut album and single. With influences ranging from Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake to Michael Jackson, Lewis wants his sound and content to reflect his reality. By delving into and remaining true to his experiences as a teen, he hopes to create timeless music. And it’s exactly what he is meant to do.

As the New Year approaches and 2014 come to a close, we thought we would reflect on our lives as we travel life’s journey. We have seen many changes and we have seen some things remain the same. This year has challenged us in many ways. We have made some strides and suffered setbacks. The time is growing near when we seek to renew ourselves. To rejuvenate our spirits that have been tirelessly put to task. Some of us have been wounded and some of us are healing from the things that we were confronted with. Whether it was career or personal related, family or friends, strangers or neighbors. We have all been through something. We have seen our people under attack, our children’s blood stain the streets. We have seen and felt a multitude of things outside of ourselves. Through it all we have had to protect our spirits, our minds and our bodies. So before the New Year enters let’s reflect on where we have been. Let’s clear out the old and make room for the new with rejuvenated spirits and clear minds.

When a record deal Jill Tirrell naively signed right out of college didn't turn out as she expected, she decided to learn all sides of the music business first hand. She moved to New York City and got jobs working at Atlantic Records,and EMI.
Tirrell's recorded "Be With You Tonight" with a duet called, "Run Away," that quickly became a summer smash and was popularly labeled as a fan-favorite of 2014. Jill's new single, "Real Love" also produced by Todd Terry, will be released on InHouse Records this December 1. Jill Tirrell and Todd Terry have put together a powerful, fun new song with a great groove, called "Real Love" which is set for release on InHouse Records on December 1, 2014. The new song is a follow-up to Jill Tirrell's chart-topping breakout single, "Be With You Tonight," and international summer smash duet, "Run Away." "Real Love" features Todd Terry's signature drums over a melodic keyboard and impressive vocal performance by Jill singing the lyrics, harmonies and catchy chorus.
Jill Tirrell has been gaining steady recognition as Freestyle's rising star and has had a busy year performing with some of the industry's best. She put on her show at New York City's Central Park Bandshell where 60,000 people participated in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and at Jersey Jam at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ to a sold-out crowd where she opened the show for Lisa Lisa, The Cover Girls, Sugar Hill Gang, and more. This month, she performed alongside of George Lamond and TKA (K7) and also opened for Judy Torres.
"Real Love" packs a punch and rises to the challenge.
On today's show, I discuss first the importance and significance of both the Thanksgiving holiday and the beginning of the Christmas season which began yesterday with Advent. I also point out the importance of praying for those less fortunate who suffer in poverty and oppression. I urge you to give to poor during the Christmas season as well. On the line of religion which is so important to Latinos, I read two important news articles related to that. Bishop Chaput of Philadelphia gives an interview regarding Pope Francis' visit there coming next year and comments on the nature of biased news reporting concerning the Pontiff's commentary. In another article concerning Pope Francis, the Pontiff met with Patriarch Bartholomew I in Istanbul, Turkey over the weekend and the Pontiff received the blessing of the Patriarch in the form of a kiss upon his head. This is a continuing of the efforts of reapproachment by Saint Pope John Paul, The Great, who sought to engage in diplomatic and religious amity with the Orthodox and Protestant Churches. Pope Benedict XVI also continued the effort and made great strides in connecting with members of the Episcopal Churches. Pope Francis continues this effort and this event marks another great stride forward as it is recognized that the two churches are co-equal and parallel in their direction. I then read an article about a Rasmussen poll that reportedly shows that 62% of "LIKELY' voters opposed Obama's executive action regarding immigration. Though I read the article I also criticize it as being biased and the poll as also being biased and aimed at propaganda possibly. I also read an article concerning the slight slowing of "Black Friday" sales this year. Lastly, I read briefly the news about the upcoming test launch of the new NASA space exploration capsule, Orion. I am very excited about this new spacecraft.
