Gavin explains what's wrong with the Susan G Komen charity and more!
Today, I’m delighted to welcome MaryAnn Means-Dufrene. Having previously served as deputy chief of staff for Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, she recently accepted the position of Executive Director for the Susan G. Komen Great Forth Worth Affiliate.
We’ll be talking about the process of moving from one career to another; particularly the shift from public service to non-profit management. We’ll talk about how she’s adapting from managing a department to running an entire organization. We’ll also touch on her thoughts on non-profit management, as well as her vision for the organization in the future.

This show is dedicated to a dear SiStar in Chirst.. Trisha Sherfield Polite.. Recently she transitioned and entered into the bosom of GOD. She passed last Tuesday a week ago today. She battled with cancer before transitioning. She lived boldly and vivaciously. Trisha touched the lives of many and never gave up! She lived while yet dying. She became an advocate for Susan G. Komen and shared her testimony across the nation. Although cancer returned after she was cancer free for a year it did not slow her down. She lived boldly til her very last breath. Trisha's movement became well known and hash tagged.. #PRESS it was inspired by this scritpture below...
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
So today dear friends let not the troubles of this world keep you down. Yet rise and live beyond all adversities. Today I can go on another day because I know my SiStar lived unto GOD purposefully yielding into her everlasting destiny. She leaves to mourn her a beautiful family; Husband, two daughters and a son. A loving and devoted Mother, Best Elder sister, and favored nephew and a host of other family and friends.
No matter where your life journey takes you don't give up #PRESS Have a blessed day and Know GOD has great plans for you.. In all things PRESS!!!!

Due to intense backlash by liberal, pro-abortion groups, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation retracted its plans to discontinue funding of Planned Parenthood.
Chief Executive Nancy G. Brinker, said that the decision had nothing to do with the group's position on abortion, but rather a new policy, barring grants to groups under governmental investigations.
Not surprising, the reaction was swift and intense. Funding to PP increased dramatically, with NYC Mayor Bloomberg pledging $250K to the organization, implying that “politics” was behind Susan G. Komen’s decision.
Those who support Planned Parenthood argue that they provide essential services to women, with abortion being just one part.
Opponents on the other hand, speak to what is considered to be a hidden agenda to encourage the taking of sacred life, for mere convenience, under the mantra of “choice”.
While Planned Parenthood enjoys strong support amongst those who would tie it in to civil or women’s rights, what is not known by many, is its sinister origin, as far as 1916, by Margaret Sanger, who was a eugenicist and racist. Said she about black people, "they are…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
Think before you PINK! With Vicki Saputo, RN. Pink washing or "pink ribbons" can be a marketing ploy to sell products. BIG cosmetic companies sell products containing the toxic chemicals like carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, etc. that are known to cause breast cancer, as well as many other diseases. These companies are sponsors for "Walk For The Cure" and need to “Walk their Talk” and encourage prevention, says Vicki.
In 2011, pinkwashing reached a new low with Promise Me, a perfume commissioned by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Promise Me contains unlisted chemicals that are regulated as toxic and hazardous, have not been adequately evaluated for human safety, and have demonstrated negative health effects.
What should we be aware of before we shell out our money and think pink?
Vicki Saputo is a registered nurse, actress, model. Vicki is affectionately known as “Nurse Vicki” on Prescriptions for Health radio and PRN.FM Internet radio, What’s New in the News in Medicine on TV and on www.doctorsaputo.com.
Do you often find yourself feeling lost, alone, overwhelmed and unsure how to help yourself, much less someone else in your family?
Would you like to see that someone else has walked this path, so you can? Me too. There is HOPE…
My name is Susan Burfoot Mead and I’ve been blessed to be married to my soul mate, Holt Mead, since 1979. I think the first 30 years we spent working on learning what soul mates are…Or should I ask him if we are still working on that?
I am the mother of two sons, Matthew, who lives in South Louisiana and Kyle, Forever 20 and in Heaven, where he is doing a Dance with Jesus. Kyle’s been there since March 29, 2008.
I wrote the book Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace as the answer to a question posed in the Experiencing God Bible Study I was in the midst of doing. The question asked was what does God want you to do, right now?
I heard deep in my spirit, “Sing My love song.” And laughed out loud. Seriously God, You will have to send me a bucket, because You KNOW I can’t carry a tune. Then the next deep spiritual nudge was, “What’s in your hand? Use it.” I was writing in the workbook, so a pen was in my hand…
I swept away the workbook, got out a clean journal and out the story poured. At 5:30 am, I looked up as I wrote the last words. The very first email I read later that day was from Proverbs 31 Ministries about their upcoming SheSpeaks 2013, a speakers and WRITERS conference. Seriously God? You WANT me to DO something with this? OK.
So the story begins…
