Pardon me for interrupting today's regularly scheduled episode of VAX ON here on the Out of Patients podcast feed. I promise it's for a good reason, namely, a rebroadcast — for those who may have missed it — of Episode One of The Cancer Mavericks: A History of Survivorship, our acclaimed 8-part narrative history series from 2021. Over 300,000 listeners can't be wrong, and it'd be a disservice not to ensure all of my incredible listeners were made aware of this highly ambitious passion project. 2021 was the 50th Anniversary of The National Cancer Act of 1971, passed by President Richard Nixon, that kicked off "The War on Cancer." What you're going to hear in this inaugural episode lays the fundamental groundwork for what has become the very idea of cancer advocacy in the modern era. This series has made a huge dent in society and culture, further demonstrating a most important key takeaway: Advocacy matters. Your voice matters, for it is the only thing that's ever changed anything. Enjoy Episode One of The Cancer Mavericks: A History of Survivorship.

Kate and Mandy talk to the legendary Julie – a peafessional social worker and art therapist with her own lived experience of disability due to being born with a hand difference. Julie has many years of experience of working in the disability field as a social worker, and currently works across two advocacy roles – one supporting people to contribute to the Disability Royal Commission and another with Voice At The Table, an organisation that aims to increase the participation of people with cognitive disabilities in government and community organisations. Julie is also connected with Aussie Hands – an NFP that supports kids and adults who have been born with a hand difference or have an acquired hand injury. Julie talks about the challenges of growing up in the 80s and 90s with a hand difference. Socially things could often be hard due to bullying and exclusion, and she became good at hiding her hand in her clothing to avoid being noticed. While always being very interested in becoming a social worker, these early experiences helped fuel her interest in supporting others with their own lived experiences of social exclusion. It wasn't until she began working for council-based disability access and inclusion program MetroAccess that Julie began to positively identify with her disability. Here, she was celebrated and sought out for her experience, and was introduced to a strong community of amazing people who were proud of their identities, and who in turn helped her find a new world of empowerment, ownership and pride. Julie is also an awesome cake maker, and Mandy strongly believes she needs to be on the next series of Making It – check out her Instagram for all her cake pics and if anyone knows the producers of Making It – please get in touch and let's try to make it happen!

In this episode of Beyond the Balance Sheet, we are revisiting Gary Mendell's episode. Gary Mendell is the founder and CEO of Shatterproof, a national nonprofit focused on reversing the addiction crisis in America. Gary's son, Brian, tried drugs and alcohol which ultimately led to addiction. Unfortunately, Brian died of this addiction disease that affects more than 22 million Americans every day. Gary discusses the warning signs that families should look out for, when worried if their child may be using substances. Listen as Gary talks about Shatterproof and how they are changing the country's consciousness around addiction.   IN THIS EPISODE:   [02:25] Gary shares his journey and his experience as a family with his son.  [07:20] Advice Gary gives families who are worried about their children using substances.   [16:45] How financial resources can help or hinder the process of recovering from addiction.  [21:20] Shatterproof is looking to help people with substance use disorder get the chance to find recovery [24:10] How the field of recovery will look in the future.    KEY TAKEAWAYS:   Addiction is a treatable chronic illness. Every person with a substance use disorder deserves the chance to find recovery. There were more than 93,000 fatal overdoses in 2020. 80% of people say they don't want a friend, colleague, or neighbor with addiction. We need to reverse the shame around addiction.  Addiction is not a moral failing; you need to get the facts about this misunderstood medical condition.   LINKS MENTIONED:   Website https://www.shatterproof.org    Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ShatterproofHQ/    LinkedIn https://linktr.ee/shatterproof    Instagram https://www.instagram.com/weareshatterproof    Twitter https://twitter.com/ShatterproofHQ   BIO: Gary Mendell is the founder and CEO of Shatterproof, a national nonprofit focused on reversing the course of the addiction crisis in America. After losing his son Brian to addiction in 2011, Gary founded Shatterproof to spare other families the tragedy his had suffered. Since founding Shatterproof in 2012, Mr. Mendell has been a national leader in the addiction space creating solutions that will create more access to treatment for Opioid and Substance Use Disorders including the creation of the Shatterproof National Principles of Care to guide providers, payers, and patients to quality treatment. He advocates for state and federal policy changes, and most recently launched a national strategy and call to action to address stigma related to Opioid and Substance Use Disorders.

On this special edition of the podcast, we respond to the release of the draft decision that suggests the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, removing the federal constitutional protection to choose an abortion. While Roe and the fundamental right to reproductive autonomy remains as we speak, nonprofits across the country are poised to act, should this draft become reality. Today we'll cover just some of the things you and your organization can do.    Our Attorneys for this Episode  Leslie Barnes Tim Mooney Quyen Tu  Resources  Reproductive Rights, Health, and Justice Resource Guide  5 Ways Nonprofits Can Respond to Dobbs v. JWHO    Quick Overview  The Dobbs opinion is only a draft – it is not law now. Roe is.  People who seek an abortion now have a fundamental constitutional right to those medical services  That said, should this draft become the majority opinion, Roe will be overturned ending federal protections, returning the question to the states  Many states have ghost bans on the books, others have trigger laws that will end abortion rights when Roe is overturned (or the decision is issued). Other states have constitutional or other legal protections for the right to reproductive autonomy.  It's likely that state courts and legislatures will become a major focus  There are efforts to legalize abortion and ban it nationally in Congress.  Some states are looking to do much more than ban abortion. The draft is breathtaking in its scope, putting marriage equality, the right to contraception, and much more at risk of losing protection under the US Constitution.    What nonprofits can do  Organize and protest  Provide services to people seeking reproductive healthcare  Lobby Congress to pass the Women's Health Protection Act  Lobby your state legislature to protect the right to choose  Consider ballot measure options  Accountability advocacy  Support litigation to block bans  Elections – 501(c)(4)s can make this an issue in their support/opposition of candidates   Nonpartisan voter education – 501(c)(3)s need to tread carefully as we get closer to primaries and the general election. Reproductive health advocacy can continue, but be mindful that it cannot look like support or opposition to candidates or parties  Individuals – you have more flexibility in what you can do. Protesting, organizing, donating, volunteering, voting for the candidates of your choice and more.    Bolder Advocacy is here to help your organization in its efforts.  Contact us: 866-NP-LOBBY or advocacy@afj.org

Student loan debt has become a crisis in this country. It seems like the Biden Administration wants to try and help alleviate at least some of that debt -- but what should that look like? If we're not also tackling college affordability at the same time as student loan debt, what's the point? And how did we get to this point where entire generations are financially capsized by the time they're in their early 20s? We dug into this with Bryce McKibben, Senior Director of Policy & Advocacy at the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice. Learn more about your ad choices.

Here Comes the Sun: A Solocast on Death, Grief, and Love

Welcome back to the Mother's Quest Podcast.   I know it's been a while– a long while.    When my father, David Lieberman, died in December, I put the podcast on pause. And in many ways, it felt like I also put parts of my life on pause. But after months of navigating waves of grief, I'm finding my way back into my life and back to my voice.   Through laughter and tears, I recorded a special solocast to officially close out Season Six of the Mother's Quest Podcast so I can begin again. It felt like part of my healing to share my stories with you and I'm hopeful that there may be something in these reflections that can be meaningful and healing for you too.     Death is one of the few things we can all count on in our lives. And yet it's one of the things we are most reluctant to talk about. I hope this exploration of my experience during my father's death, and the lessons I learned, might support you to open yourself to conversations about death. In so doing, you'll open yourself more fully to life and love.    "There is nothing so whole as a broken heart" – a quote I cut out in a magazine while working on my vision board the other day. It resonated immediately. There were so many people, only a few of you who I mention by name in this episode (but you know who you are!) whose wisdom, compassion and caring made moving through this painful process not only bearable but at times beautiful. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You helped me and my family stay whole and I am so grateful.  Lessons To Guide You Through the Death of a Loved One In this episode, I walk you through the eight lessons I learned through my father's death, my grief, and most importantly– my love for my Dad and my family.    1) Look for the Signs  2) Find Your Guides  3) Closure Can be Healing  4) Lean Into Your Rituals. Make Them Your Own.  5) Let Laughter In and Invite the Possibility that the Unexpected Can be a Gift  6) Release Perfectionism and Shame  7) Open Your Heart and Ride the Waves  8) Have the Conversations    This Episode's Challenge: While it's not easy to talk about, having conversations about death is one of the best ways to prepare ourselves and those around us for when the time comes– because we'll never know when it might happen. So say "yes" to conversations about death and dying. Use the resources at Death over Dinner to gather with friends and family for these conversations.  Also have meaningful conversations, and consider recording them, like I did with my father, with the important people in your lives. Finally, enjoy the journey, cherish the dash between the years from when you were born and when you will die and continually ask yourself the question "What is it you want to do with your one wild and precious life?"   Resources and Podcast Episodes Mentioned: Love of Family and Pursuing our Fate with David Lieberman – A Father's Day Special Mystics Oracle Deck  YouTube | The Dash Summer Day by Mary Oliver Death Over Dinner: The Most Forgiving Place for Difficult Situations Jewish Hospice Center of Los Angeles  Right Livelihood, Magic, and Meaning with Lindsay Pera of the Modern Mystics Institute Embracing Neurodiversity and Being an Adult with Julie Lythcott-Haims and Ryan Neale   Special note about this episode: These reflections are based on my experience navigating the death of my father who lived a full and happy life until the age of 84. I am certain that losing a child or someone of any age to a traumatic situation is a whole different experience. I do want to share a link to an episode I recorded with Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, who tragically lost her son in senseless gun violence. I invite you to listen to this episode for a different and important perspective on grief: From Grief to Advocacy and a Circle of Mothers with Trayvon Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton.   This Episode Is Dedicated By: Donna Helete   Donna Helete thrives in the realm of human connection.  She's a regenerative grief coach, bereavement counselor, relationship tender, mentor, educator, and community builder with experience in non-profit leadership. She holds space for conversations around grief, love, life, and death.  She walks a path toward elderhood, bringing with her real life credentials which include the death of her husband of 28 years in September 2015.  Through her experience, she emphasizes the regenerative nature of grief, which allows us to be renewed again and again.  To learn more about her work, visit donnahelete.com and learn about her one on one sessions and workshop offerings.
