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)."
On Monday, October 13, at 10:00 AM, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my guest will be Stephany Bonney, the American Cancer Society's Eastern Division Interim Senior Director, Community Events. 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.
Prior to this role, Stephany served as Director for New York metro, responsible for all aspects of income development surrounding their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer portfolio. In that role, Stephany led the first ever Making Strides event to break $3 million dollars in fundraising.
Stephany has always been involved in the fight against breast cancer, leading the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer for 4 years prior to joining the American Cancer Society. In total, Stephany has raised more than $50 million in the fight. The proud niece of breast cancer survivors, she earned her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from SUNY Cortland but decided to use her passion for fundraising to drive her career within the non-profit sector.
It is with pleasure that I will interview, Steve, Kristee, Genny & Jim co founders of Making Strides Queensland.

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!

Well Done Thy Good and Faithful Servants
Before American slavery abolition, the total slave population south of the Mason-Dixon line was somewhere in the likes of FOUR MILLION predominately black people. The US government instituted chattel slavery and made BILLIONS OF DOLLARS from free slave labor. The tactics used by slave owners left Black Americans and other minorities stripped of their native tongues, religion and culture. We killed if we became literate and were taught to hate each other simply because of skin complexion.
Today, Black Americans are subjected to a NEW form of slavery. Many feel that the effects of slavery in the 18th and 19th century are still felt today. We were slaves then and we are slaves now; just this time it seems irreversible, right? Or are blacks in a much better position? Have we gained strides in America? This episode, we discuss the effects of slavery on Black Americans today, if any.
