    Therapy Dogs

    in Health

    Ms. Swendon is currently working on a program for therapy dog ambassador for, Train a Dog-Save a Warrior (TADSAW) at tadsaw.org . These would be therapy dogs, PTSD Support Dogs that go out into the community and promote the Service Dog Program by actually demonstrating what a Service Dog can do for a warrior surviving with PTSD, TBI, & MST.
    In 1987 she founded the first chapter in Texas of the Delta Society, now Pet Partners. She had the first certified therapy dog in South Texas. Since then she has been active in television for 20 years, written 52 cookbooks and now a series of books entitled “POCKETS OF PEACE”. Each book in this series is inspirational and motivational in content to be distributed free of charge to those struggling to heal, to wounded warriors, to warriors deployed and deploying as well as the fourth in the series, “K9's − Therapy for PTSD, TBI and MST. This book features photographs of warriors with their service dogs and shows the depth and intensity of the bond between the two.
    In 2006 Ms. Swendson founded the Penny's from Heaven Foundation, Inc. with the primary focus being therapy dogs for those struggling to heal from a myriad of afflictions. Because of the location of San Antonio and the vast number of military and military hospitals the primary focus became working with our wounded warriors with PTSD and TBI. The program split into two separate foundations only recently one focusing on therapy dogs and the other solely providing service dogs to our wounded warriors in need of help.

    Dr. Jason Williams- Stem Cell & Ablative therapy for Cancer & ALS

    in Health

    Questions? Comments? Connect with show hosts: Teal Gray & Tui Snider. Be sure to follow @TGWWradio on Twitter!


    Dr. Williams has had an interest in medical research at an early age. After watching his grandmother struggle with breast cancer, he set out on a journey to find a cure. In college, Dr. Williams spent his spare time in the labs and library researching gene therapy. He won many awards for his efforts.


    After receiving his Medical Degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, Dr. Williams became interested in a new concept: destroying cancer cells by using radiofrequency ablation of tumors. This procedure used the same minimally-invasive technique of using imaging to guide the needle straight into the tumor and instead of biopsying the tumor, it was heated and destroyed. This was already being done in the liver at other research hospitals, but was relatively new to other areas of the body.


    It didn't take long for the word to spread about this new procedure, and Dr. Williams was performing ablations on many patients around the world.He won many awards including the Radiological Society of North American Resident / Fellow of the Year.


    As one of the pioneers of cancer ablation, Dr. Williams founded The American Cancer Ablation Center in 2003 and began seeing patients at his office in Gulf Shores. He takes pride in being able to offer his patients the latest, most advanced medical imaging technology and procedures available to date.

    Well, What If Donald Trump Wins? Daily Gogetemism #496

    in Lifestyle

    As much as I love my people, we need to cut it out. We have been divided for centuries over skin complexion, hair texture, location, gang afliation, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, nationality,etc etc etc. The divisions go on forever. Will we unite if Donald Trump becomes president? Not likely right? 


    So what are we afraid of really? What has happened to us as far as the government is concerned to make us think that ANY candidate will be any better than the ones we have had for our situation? 


    Really, save for president Obama, what has ANY president done for US?
