From our conversation, I knew I had to stop sitting still. Stop accepting that we got the best, without checking it out myself. I chose to not accept statistics. I couldn't take my son's cancer away, but there were other things I could do. Everett and I got busy researching.
Many may be surprised to find an often irreverent men's brand that claims its razors "are f***ing great," actually has a soft side. Almost hidden on t...
Companies interested in sharing health messages should partner with physicians, nutritionists, nurses and educators versed in messaging for final editing/approval.
Why should Mira have to deal with this, Dad? She is going to keep getting older, and eventually, the questions will come. What can I possibly tell this little girl (the one with my eyes) that can keep the seriousness of the situation at bay. I'll make it sound like a fairy tale somehow.
I hate summer. Heat and humidity make me feel physically ill and I'd far rather shovel my way through a snow bank than feel as though I'm being roasted from the inside out. I loathe the sun. It's just so bright. And hot.

Can you believe that for almost 14 months I'd noticed a small amount of purplish blood in my stool and did nothing about it? Surely, I had been ratio...

What if you found a medicine that could help your child, but it wasn't legal or commonly accepted as mainstream medicine? Would you break the law to save your child? These are some of the questions the unfinished documentary film, Weed The People addresses.
I wasn't at all sure how to react. On one hand, I hadn't been handed a death sentence. As far as skin cancer goes, this is the one I'd pick.
For the past 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has been helping promote the best science to help control cancer. In support of that goal, t...
My father taught me many lessons. One that still resonates true today is, "Be an engine, not a caboose." Lead the train down the track; don't follow it. It's funny how a few words you hear as a child echo inside you decades later.
I was force-fed through an IV at a cost of a grand per day to my health insurance carrier. After two three-week stays in the cancer ward, I was released, only to start losing weight again. Fortunately, a member of my oncology team knew exactly what to do about my drastic weight loss. I was urged to get my hands on the real deal -- marijuana.
When I walked out of the photo shoot this year, knowing that the life-changing experiences would soon take place amongst the new models and staff, it was hard to actually get in my car and leave. Stepping away is never easy.
