MONDAY, JANUARY 9TH, CANCER S.O.S. Guest will be Dr. Moshe Lewis. An innovative medical specialist, Dr. Lewis currently serves as a Pain Management expert for health advice sites including Dr. Oz's Sharecare, LA Splash, In Hollywood, Everyday Health and Organized Wisdom. We are going to discuss ways to prepare for and maximize your doctor's visit. Most oncologists have a full slate of patients scheduled for each workday, so Dr. Lewis is going give us tips on how to make each appointment count for both the cancer patient and caregiver.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 10TH, DIAGNOSIS S.O.S. Because it was such important information for all women to know, we're going to rebroadcast the interview with Dr. Linnea Chap, a highly respected specialist in breast cancer and gynecologic malignancies. Paget's disease of the breast is often confused with other skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis. Misdiagnosis is more common when both breast are affected and no lump in the breast is detected. This is a very dangerous form of breast cancer, so awareness is critical.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11TH, CAREGIVING S.O.S. "Persons with dementia may be slightly different from other persons with brain injuries. Their moments of clarity are usually self-initiated, and erupt in short bursts at unexpected times. My wife, June, was still a very real, perceptive and sensitive person." My guest is Frank Fuerst, who cared for his wife June for seventeen years after an Alzheimer's disease diagnosis. His book: Alzheimer's Care with Dignity is a comprehensive guide for any family going through a diagnosis of dementia with a loved one.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 12TH, TREATMENT S.O.S. The Doctor Who Cures Cancer: The Story of Emanuel Revici, M.D. by William Kelley Eidem When I was given the opportunity to interview the author of this book, I simply couldn't turn it down. Several weeks ago, I had an opportunity to interview Lori Lober. Lori--by all medical standards--shouldn't be alive. There is much that we don't know and understand about cancer. From the book: "100-year-old Dr. Revici has had six decades of success with cancer patients who have benefited from his discoveries. More than 30 years ago, Dr. John Heller, who was then the medical director of Sloan-Kettering Memorial Cancer Center, privately said of Dr. Revici, 'I've known him for ten years. I don't know how he does it, but patients walk in dead and walk out alive.'" This interview will discuss Dr. Revici's medical breakthroughs, innovative treatments, and struggle for recognition.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 13TH, LADIES WHO INSPIRE Our special lady this week is Vernice Armour, author of Zero to Breakthrough: The 7-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals that Matter. Vernice is a former Captain in the United States Marine Corps who was the first African-American female naval aviator in the Marine Corps and America's first African American female combat pilot in the United States military. She flew the AH-1W SuperCobra attack helicopter in the 2003 invasion of Iraq and eventually served two tours in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. But there is so much more to discover about this incredible, inspirational lady. Vernice, you inspire all of us!
