For Tara Rolle, the treatment was the easy part of her cancer experience. Diagnosed with small-cell neuroendocrine cervical cancer, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, at 37, Rolle was initially shocked but then jumped into planning mode. She rallied her family for support, figured out the most appropriate way to explain the situation to her teenage daughter and even managed to continue her job as a San Francisco school superintendent while undergoing treatment. At The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Rolle received overlapping cancer treatment. After undergoing six rounds of chemotherapy, 30 rounds of external-beam radiation and three brachytherapies (when radioactive sources are placed inside the patient to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors), Rolle was officially declared free of cancer in July 2020 — five months after first being diagnosed. While Rolle's family was relieved and ready to move on, Rolle was unable to join them. Fears of cancer recurrence plagued her, and she found herself taking long walks and writing down these thoughts, which she dubbed “the white noise of survivorship,” in an attempt to give them less power over her mindset. Realizing that these long messages could help communicate her feelings of anxiety to her family and help other survivors in similar situations, Rolle decide to put them into a book, “The White Noise of Survivorship: and Other Unsolicited Lessons I Learned From Cancer.” In today's episode of the “Cancer Horizons” podcast, Rolle shares the unexpected upsides of undergoing cancer treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic, why she chose to not initially go public with her diagnosis, how writing her book helped process her fears of cancer recurrence and more.

Dr. Archie Bleyer is a well known and highly respected member of the Cancer Community. On today's podcast Dr. Bleyer will talk about his 10 years as the Chair of the Children's Cancer Group in the 1990's and some of the accomplishments that he oversaw during this time period. Dr. Bleyer will then discuss his focus that began over 20 years ago on the issues that the "forgotten" age group of 18-39 Adolescents and Young Adults that are diagnosed with different forms of cancer each year have to deal with. In the United States, there are 90,000 AYA's that fall into this category.
I am obsessed with today's guest and I'm not even going to pretend otherwise. Geena Davis, the star of such seminal movies as Tootsie, Beetlejuice, Thelma & Louise, A League of Their Own and the underrated classic, The Long Kiss Goodnight, TURNED UP AT MY ACTUAL HOUSE to record a witty, warm and fascinating conversation.*We talk about her feelings of imposter syndrome and self-doubt in the early days of her career, the fact that her failure as a model led to her first film role alongside Dustin Hoffman (who gave her incredible advice on how to defend herself against the amorous advances of her male co-stars) and the revelation of being diagnosed with ADD in her 40s. Along the way, we touch on height (she's 6ft! A tall woman like me!), the #MeToo movement, representation, almost becoming an Olympic archer, being an older mother and the seismic impact her friendship with Susan Sarandon had on Davis's life. I can't wait for you all to listen.*yes, she met my ginger cat Huxley and they got along famously.--Geena Davis's gloriously warm and ironic memoir, Dying of Politeness, is out now: https://www.waterstones.com/book/dying-of-politeness/geena-davis/9780008508111--How To Fail With Elizabeth Day is hosted and produced by Elizabeth Day.

Meet warrior, Jenny Jones. Jenny believes persistence is key to living with all the aspects of her two rare, chronic conditions called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis and Short Bowel Syndrome. Diagnosed with FAP as a child, she underwent a total colectomy at age nine. Complications led to six additional surgeries and an eighth surgery to remove her gall bladder. With encouragement from a community FAP page, Jenny started a blog in 2012 called Life's a Polyp and began openly sharing all aspects of living with her rare conditions. The blog lead her to start a YouTube vlog, write a children's book called Life's a Polyp with Zeke and Katie and become an important advocate for her disease. Tune in as Jenny explains how perseverance helped her find the best medical care, be proud of her scars and find her purpose in life. To learn more about Jenny or to support The National Organization for Rare Disorders Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Research Fund, go to her website at https://www.lifesapolyp.com.

Today my conversation is with Dr. Book Sheehan, a healer whom I have been working with for the past 6 months. Dr. Brook is a chiropractor and Dynamic Systems Analysis Practitioner. Dr. Brook comes from a long line of medical practitioners, however it took her some time to realize this field was also for her.Diagnosed with mild Cerebral Palsey at birth, Dr. Brook ran the story in her head, that she could not be a Doctor. So many of us are patterned to believe we can or cannot do things. Fortunately Dr. Brook found a chiropractor when she was pregnant with her child, who saw light in her and encouraged her to use her innate gifts to get a Chiropractic degree.From healing her migraines to giving birth to a healthy baby, Dr. Brook knew she could also help others, as she had been helped. With a toddler at home, leaving her accounting world, she went to Chiropractic school and furthered her studies with Dynamic Systems Analysis.Dr. Brook shares her story, and enlightens us about what DSA is. Each of us has a unique body that changes on a daily basis. She helps her clients identify what their body needs at any given time. We also get a small exercise that can help us each make our own intuitive choices on what is right for our body.Dr. Brook has helped me immensely on my own healing journey.

Diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2018 at 26 Gaby Fanizzi quickly realized that she was in the minority of thyroid cancer patients because she was young. She started the Love Health Nachos Instagram page to connect with other young thyroid cancer patients and survivors. Gabby hosts monthly support groups for thyroid cancer patients and survivors, and has learned that her experience as a young cancer survivor differs from that of older patients.
Jacqui O'Riordan is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner from Harrogate, North Yorkshire in the UK. She has worked as a mental health nurse for almost 20 years, including working in a secure unit with chronically ill patients. She has worked in crisis assessment with Accident and Emergency and the Police since 2008. Now 49, Jacqui was diagnosed as autistic and ADHD a year ago, and her two children are also autistic. Since learning more about autism, she has begun to question the lack of proper training in neurodiversity that mental health professionals in the UK are currently given. She wants to see a push for better training and the inclusion of autistic staff in planning and delivering training. To this end, she recently set up a working group of autistic staff who work in her NHS organisation, including a Consultant Psychiatrist, social workers, nurses and admin staff, to explore this further. In our conversation we talk about: ➡ How she and her children came to realise they were all autistic ➡ The positives and the challenges of living as a newly diagnosed family unit ➡ How her work as a psychiatric nurse has been impacted and informed by her deepening understanding of autism, and addressing the lack of knowledge and awareness in the profession Squarepeg is a podcast in which neurodivergent women, and trans and nonbinary people, explore navigating a neurotypical world and share their insights, challenges and successes. I hope that these conversations will be inspiring and thought provoking, open you up to new ways of thinking about being neurodivergent, and help you feel more connected to a worldwide community of people with similar experiences. I'm Amy Richards, and after being diagnosed autistic at the age of 37 I'm now on a mission to learn more about different perspectives and issues around being a neurodivergent adult in a world that feels like it doesn't quite fit.

In 1923, he sold all of his possessions to finance the publication of his first book, Crepusculario (“Twilight”). He published the volume under the pseudonym “Pablo Neruda” to avoid conflict with his family, who disapproved of his occupation. The following year, he found a publisher for Veinte poemas de amor y una cancion desesperada (“Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair”). The book made a celebrity of Neruda, who gave up his studies at the age of twenty to devote himself to his craft.In 1927, Neruda began his long career as a diplomat in the Latin American tradition of honoring poets with diplomatic assignments. After serving as honorary consul in Burma, Neruda was named Chilean consul in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1933. While there, he began a friendship with the visiting Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. After transferring to Madrid later that year, Neruda also met Spanish writer Manuel Altolaguirre. Together, the two men founded a literary review called Caballo verde para la poesîa in 1935. The outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 interrupted Neruda's poetic and political development. He chronicled the horrendous years which included the execution of García Lorca in Espana en el corazon (1937), published from the war front. Neruda's outspoken sympathy for the loyalist cause during the Spanish Civil War led to his recall from Madrid in 1937. He then moved to Paris and helped settle Spanish republican refugees in Chile.Neruda returned to Chile in 1938 where he renewed his political activity and wrote prolifically. Named Chilean Consul to Mexico in 1939, Neruda left Chile again for four years. Upon returning to Chile in 1943, he was elected to the Senate and joined the Communist Party. When the Chilean government moved to the right, they declared communism illegal and expelled Neruda from the Senate. He went into hiding. During those years he wrote and published Canto general (1950).In 1952 the government withdrew the order to arrest leftist writers and political figures, and Neruda returned to Chile and married Matilde Urrutia, his third wife (his first two marriages, to Maria Antonieta Haagenar Vogelzang and Delia del Carril, both ended in divorce). For the next twenty-one years, he continued a career that integrated private and public concerns and became known as the people's poet. During this time, Neruda received numerous prestigious awards, including the International Peace Prize in 1950, the Lenin Peace Prize and the Stalin Peace Prize in 1953, and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.Diagnosed with cancer while serving a two-year term as ambassador to France, Neruda resigned his position, ending his diplomatic career. On September 23, 1973, just twelve days after the defeat of Chile's democratic regime, the man widely regarded as the greatest Latin American poet since Darío died in Santiago, Chile.

Elle (she/her) is a 27 year old sex positive Oregonian. She's heterosexual and monogamous and ironically our talk led to this statement of mutual non monogamy which you'll hear more about here. Diagnosed with HSV-1 genitally just a few months ago, I was really shocked at how cool she was with talking about it so soon. We talk about how her self education led her to discovering the most useful information she received was learning how others navigate discussions about HSV, disclose and just overall talk about it. It's odd that health organizations don't want to work with those of us who are being sought out for sexual health information at all. My resistance was that I'm not credible because I'm a dude with a podcast. Now, as a non profit, I'm still just unable to get connected to anyone at the CDC for what's a no brainer collaboration to minimize new STI transmissions. We'll get there soon though, with or without the support of major institutions.

This week's Beautiful Misfits guest is Ione Gamble. I absolutely loved talking to this intelligent, questioning, energetic and – crucially – hopeful young woman. Ione is a writer, editor, art director and founder of Polyester Zine. She is also, in her own words, a ‘gross girl'. Diagnosed weeks after her birthday with Chrohn's disease – a debilitating inflammatory bowel disease – Ione's young adult life has been shaped by illness, and hospital wards.S he channels all this into her work as she questions many of the stories still being told to us as women - particularly about physical beauty. Because despite all the body positivity, beauty is all too often still slim, white and able bodied. But how many of us feel we actually fit these archetypes? Ione joins me to talk about all of this - plus the the world of fashion, social media and how ‘good taste' is often just about propping up the existing power structures.

Suzette Simon is the founder of NYLaughs, a New York-based nonprofit that produces free comedy events in public spaces to inspire audiences, enrich the lives of New Yorkers, connect them through humor while deepening an appreciation of stand up comedy as a unique NYC cultural asset. Diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in January 2020, the Manhattan-based producer is now using laughter in her battle with the disease to raise awareness of the impact breast cancer — which kills Black women at a 42 percent higher rate than white women — has on the Black community. Suzette recently launched her awareness initiative called #STRONGBLACKBOOBS as a place to go for the intersection of her own breast cancer journey, information, comedy, self-esteem boosting, and support for communities of color. She is the self-appointed “Master of #CancerBadAssery” and considers herself to be in the running to be “America's Next Top Cancer Survivor.” She hopes that being a #CancerBadass might shake things up and save black lives. She looks forward to reshaping Black Boob leadership and dominating boobs, cancer, and the whole world (in a good way, of course!) one fun-filled post at a time.

Even if improving hypothyroidism is not currently a concern for you, stick around and listen to this episode. This “expert” came to her expertise naturally and she's sharing her health journey with you. She echoes recent podcast guests and stories of health concerns, health issues and solutions of women and how they've taken control back. They've realized not just that your health is your responsibility but that thankfully it is your choice. Your mind, and your lifestyle have so much influence on the way you feel, you look, and you thrive or simply live … and that makes this an exciting time to be alive and over 50. 00:00 My Guest: Adalgiza Arango was told to give up. She was told to settle for 50%. For 10 years she was glued to her pillow, napping in the parking lot of the grocery store after a routine trip to stock up, sneaking off at dinner parties to lie down, and couldn't remember where she was driving. After 10 years she reversed her Hypothyroidism. Not only that she fully recovered her knee flexibility after a motorcycle accident when doctors told her 50% would be her limit. She's a terrible bedmaker, badass cupcake baker, and she's the microgreens lady. Ada got her degree in Veterinary Medicine and later studied Animal Nutrition at the National Institute for Agricultural Research in France. She immigrated from Columbia to Canada and worked for biotech companies including the BC Cancer Agency. She's also studied Acupuncture at the International College of Traditional Medicine of Vancouver. Questions we answer in this episode: 03:37 A lot of women listening can relate. Diagnosed at 40, put on Synthroid and sent home, still not feeling well. What made you keep searching? And looking for alternatives? 05:31 What was the process of creating your personal healing strategy? 09:40 What are those steps? 11:09 What would you tell a woman right now who has a thyroid issue, who's on medication whether Armour or Synthroid? You've made more of a purpose out of your healing journey and you are hosting a summit. What do you hope attendees will come away with? 28:37 What would be 3 tips you'd tell a woman who feels she's settling but doesn't know what else to do? So, there is proof some can resolve hypothyroidism naturally. Could you?

In 2022 there is still a lot that we do not know about Cancer in the African communities. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Chulu sat down with Udie and Felicity, from the Zambian Cancer Society to discuss the Cancer of Misinformation. Udie Soko is a survivor of both cancer of the lymph nodes and breast cancer.

Udie holds a BA degree in Public Administration from the University of Zambia and a Chartered Secretary qualification. She is also a certified breast health educator and a health and fitness lifestyle advisor.

Mutombo Felicity Chambula Mwila, aged 46, married and a mother of 3. Two girls and one boy. Diagnosed with Stage 2 Left breast cancer in March 2021, had a mastectomy in April 2021 and underwent chemotherapy from May to October 2022. Currently on hormonal treatment.

According to the American Psychological Association, Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness characterized by incoherent or illogical thoughts, bizarre behavior and speech, and delusions or hallucinations, such as hearing voices. This week I am joined by Dale Walsh, as he shares his unique “inside-out” perspective of schizophrenia, having experienced both sides of the illness from deep psychosis to recovered freedom. In this episode, we help debunk many myths about Schizophrenia.Following a thirteen-week hospitalization after being “extracted” from Dartmouth College, Dale was in a private psychiatric program where he was hospitalized nine times over five years. He then moved into his own unsupervised apartment and returned to college at Fairleigh Dickinson University, from where he graduated magna cum laude in English Literature. Diagnosed 45 years ago, Dale has been episode-free for the past 29. His mental health journey has evolved from total psychosis to a miraculous recovery. He has lived independently for forty years. *Remember to like, subscribe, and share this episode with a friend. Let me know what your thoughts are.

Although Africa has been dealing with HIV/AIDS for more than thirty years, sometimes the statistics are still arresting. A report recently published by the United Nations suggests that a young woman is infected every two minutes on the continent. More than that, they are three times more likely than young men aged between 15-24 to acquire the virus. The world has come a long way over the decades in the battle against HIV, with more knowledge and tools to prevent its spread than ever before. So why are young women still so vulnerable? And what can be done to help them protect themselves? #AfricaDaily
Changes to ADHD care under consideration by health officials are long overdue and will benefit a growing number of adults being diagnosed with the condition. Kathryn talks with ADHD NZ Chair Darrin Bull and Auckland mother-of-two Megan Hutchison who was diagnosed with ADHD in July.
How much easier would it be if we had instant access to our medical records, especially imaging, so we could make real-time decisions on our care and even get a second opinion in a timely manner? The reality is that although HIPAA mandates our right for access to our medical records, get copies of them, and request chances be made to them, policies differ depending on facility which hinder a patient's ability to get access real-time. Some charge to release the records, asking patients to cover the 'administrative costs.' Some wait until the very last moment to send under HIPAA's 30-day requirement between the time the request was made and honored. Some even take advantage of a one-time 30-day extension, further delaying the release of records. The delay in getting those records could cost life and limb. But there is some light on the horizon with the new Cures Act as well as innovation by entrepreneurs around medical records access. Leading the discussion is Bill Anderson, Advisor to Digicare, which is creating a platform that at its foundation democratizes access to all medical records for the patient across facilities, and even more, using a special algorithm brings the information to life by highlighting key medical terms and offering patients the ability to instantly get them defined and explained. He's also VP of Partnerships for Briya, which allows patients, physicians, and researchers, and data analytics tools to be able to access and make sense of data from any location, in any format, in near real-time. In the last half of the show, a patient shares her story of perseverance with Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.), a chronic circulation issue impacting mainly the legs, that impacts one in five over age 60. Diagnosed and treated at early onset of symptoms such as leg cramps and pain in the buttocks, hips, thighs, or calves, reduces a patient's risk of heart attack, stroke, and amputation.

Full Text of ReadingsFriday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 471All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Blessed Carlo Acutis | Saint of the DayBorn in London and raised in Milan, Carlo's wealthy parents were not particularly religious. Upon receiving his first communion at age seven, Carlo became a frequent communicant, making a point of praying before the tabernacle before or after every Mass. In addition to Francis of Assisi, Carlo took several of the younger saints as his models, including Bernadette Soubirous, Jacinta and Francisco Marto, and Dominic Savio. At school Carlo tried to comfort friends whose parents were undergoing divorce, as well as stepping in to defend disabled students from bullies. After school hours he volunteered his time with the city's homeless and destitute. Considered a computer geek by some, Carlo spent four years creating a website dedicated to cataloguing every reported Eucharistic miracle around the world. He also enjoyed films, comics, soccer, and playing popular video games. Diagnosed with leukemia, Carlo offered his sufferings to God for the intentions of the sitting pope—Benedict XVI—and the entire Church. His longtime desire to visit as many sites of Eucharistic miracles as possible was cut short by his illness. Carlo died in 2006 and was beatified in 2020. As he had wished, Carlo was buried in Assisi at St. Mary Major's “Chapel of the Stripping”, where Francis had returned his clothes to his father and began a more radical following of the Gospel. Among the thousands present for Carlo's beatification at Assisi's Basilica of St. Francis were many of his childhood friends. Presiding at the beatification service, Cardinal Agostino Vallini praised Carlo as an example of how young people can use technology to spread the Gospel “to reach as many people as possible and help them know the beauty of friendship with the Lord.” His liturgical feast is celebrated on October 12. Reflection Carlo Acutis did not strive to become famous but rather to cooperate as generously as possible with God's grace. That journey brought him many experiences, but they were all united by a burning desire to serve God and others as generously as possible. Saint of the Day, Copyright Franciscan Media

I thank God that He has allowed me to be strong enough to endure this and to show my family and friends that I am a “she cancer warrior”. -Tona Hines October is breast cancer awareness month and sadly, the statistics have not improved. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and this is a disease that affects the woman and her whole family. In this episode, we're shining a spotlight on two-time breast cancer survivor Tona Hines. Diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer at 40, this devoted mother of two didn't require any treatment beyond surgery the first time around. Ten years later, everything changed. Tona was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Her story would not be complete without the support she has received from The Ellie Fund, www.elliefund.org, a non-profit devoted to supporting patients, funding care and providing hope. Meredith Mendelson, Executive Director of the non-profit shares the story of Ellie Popkin for whom the charity is named, and it's mission to serve 1200 patients per year by 2023. #mbc #breastcancer #elliefund
Geoff Constable is a PD Avenger and an Ambassador for the World Parkinson Congress 2023 in Barcelona. We met at the last WPC2019 in Kyoto. Like many of us with YOPD, Geoff's diagnosis was delayed six years as doctors tried to figure out root issue of his symptoms. In 2008, at the age of 50, he finally was able to put a name to the issues he had, Parkinson's disease. Geoff spent his teen years sleeping on friends couches and sometimes living on the street. He earned a degree in Naval Architecture and designed 16 Ships for the Royal Australian Navy and spent countless hours battle testing the ships in extreme conditions. At 44-years old he talked to his doctor about onsetting symptoms. It took six years to diagnose him with Young Onset Parkinson's. He was happy to have a name for it, but bummed because there was no cause, no cure, and no standard disease path. Listen to how Geoff took his diagnosis of Parkinson's and discovered his own superpowers on how to incorporate and accept it. Using his own body as vessel, he put himself through battle testing and discovered he was capable of far more than he or his doctors believed possible.

October is National ADHD Awareness Month and while the National Institute of Mental Health says the average age for ADHD diagnosis right now is six, more adult women have been diagnosed with ADHD over the past few years. We revisited a conversation associate producer Lindsay Guentzel had with Dr. Lidia Zylowska, a psychiatrist at the University of Minnesota Medical School and M Health Fairview, back in March. In May, Guentzel — who was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 when she was 34 — launched her own podcast that explores the neurodiversity and for ADHD Awareness Month, she is sharing a different ADHD story every day throughout the month of October.
