A good friend has a terminal illness but you can do something at no cost that could very well cure him. There are drugs in development that have been proven to be safe for his condition, but have not yet finished the final procedures the FDA requires. The FDA places these drugs out of reach of dying patients, drugs that could save their lives. Apparently it’s OK to die, but not for a dying man to risk a drug reaction!

We hear of women with breast cancer. We raise money for breast cancer awareness. We have the whole month of October devoted to it. But do you really know the challenges women with breast cancer really face? As an occupational therapist specializing in pain management using myofascial release, I have treated a large number of women of all ages, usually through word of mouth as they hear about the therapy I perform.
