In this episode, we'll spotlight the incredible power of taking something meant for harm and turning it into something good. Molly McDonald, Founder and President of The Pink Fund, will share her mission to remedy the financial wrath of cancer.
Molly's diagnosis came as a complete surprise. With no family history and 13 years of clear mammograms, she never considered the possibility that an annual check up would reveal breast cancer. Being in the midst of transitioning jobs and insurance coverage, she began asking questions of healthcare providers. She quickly learned there was no clear solution to help alleviate patients' financial stress.
In 2006, armed with financial and disease statistics, and corporate knowledge, Molly set out to make a viable difference with "The Pink Fund." Granted nationwide recognition and sponsorship to include the Ford Motor Company's "Warriors in Pink" designation, her vision continues to grow. In fact, this fiscal year 248 individuals in 40 states received financial assistance!
Molly’s determination to magnify giving forward has been highlighted in The Detroit Free Press and labeled as the Business Superstar of the Week.
Listen, call in and live-chat to meet Molly alongside our more than 20,000 listeners.

Everybody is screaming "Black Power!" and there have been two Million Man Marches in 20 years, but...there is an old saying in politics that goes, "Whatever you subsidize you get more of."
Why don't all of these people screaming, "Black Power!" and "Nationhood!" at the top of their lungs put their money where their mouth is?
On this show will discuss the hypocrisy of refusing to invest your money in Nationhood while simultaneously paying taxes to support the Land, Infrastructure and Nationhood of your enemy.
We will also discuss why the lack of an Afrikan American fund are the absence of a suggestion of one is an indictment against so-called "Black Leadership."
Also, what exactly would an Afrikan American fund accomplish for Black Afrikan people in America?

Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.
