Soldier Takes on Breast Cancer
Sgt. Crystal Reidy, a print journalist in the Arizona Army National Guard, takes on breast cancer with a positive and fearless attitude. She's happier with cancer than some people are without it. She shares her story here and tells you what has helped her overcome chemo therapy and all her hardships in life. She doesn't let cancer define her. More than anything she's a mom, a solider, a professional, a student, and a small part of her is a cancer patient. Thank you Greendjohn for letting me use your song "Happy Sadness."

Their status as a non-profit isn’t solely based on the intricacies of our tax system, but the result of the positive work they do in American communities and around the world. However, some organizations have used their status as a non-profit to procure not only favorable tax standing but to also secure massive profits for executives and board members of the organization. Many non-profits do very little to benefit their respective causes while using raised funds for unscrupulous purposes. In light of this, here are some charities that aren’t quite so charitable after all.

How Can You Prove a Diagnosis of Cancer Qualifies You for Disability Benefits?
http://www.disabilitydenials.com/cancer-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, a Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains how you can qualify for disability benefits with a diagnosis of cancer. Social Security Disability Cancer Claims: The Social Security Administration views Cancer as a long term disability, when it's expected to last 12 months or longer or has been found to be inoperable and terminal. When cancer responds to treatment a patient may be considered able to go back to work within 12 months. The Social Security Listings of Impairments, also referred to as The Blue Book, lists their medical requirements for cancer under listing 13.0. All Cancers are further divided into 27 different sections, each with a specific and technical description of the SSA's threshold of disability for that particular type of cancer. Cancer also results in serious secondary conditions, such as: - Fatigue - Depression Many cancers are listed on the SSA list of Compassionate Allowances conditions. This allowance allows claims to be fast tracked for benefits for claimants whose medical conditions are so sever that it is evident that their illness meets the disability standard. How can Social Security deny claims for Cancer Disability? Although Cancer is recognized as a sever impairment, we've seen many initial claims for cancer benefits denied. If the cancer is discovered at an early stage the SSA may inaccurately decide that treatment will lead to remission, side effects of treatment may not have been considered. Many first claims are incomplete, without sufficient objective evidence for the SSA to justify an award of benefits. A critical part of Cancer disability claims is to show the SSA that you are in fact unable to work at your past job or at any other job according to their vocational guidelines. Don't give up on your claim. For the best chance of winning benefits under the Social Security Disability Program keep appealing and get an experienced attorney on your side. Veterans Disability Cancer Claims: Under the Veterans Disability system the VA decision maker will look to the VA rating schedule to asses the level of your service connected disability. Cancer disability is rated according to the loss of function it has caused and the effect on your ability to work. Veterans may have been exposed to substances such as Agent Orange and Radiation that are known to cause cancer. Many of these Veterans were exposed to these agents several decades ago and are now at an age where cancer may develop. If a Vietnam veteran suffers from a list of impairments the VA will presume that the Cancer disability was caused by exposure to Agent Orange. In addition, Veterans exposed to Radiation from atomic weapons, fall-out and nuclear reactors have presumptive conditions. There are 21 different types of Cancers related to exposure to radiation. Long Term Disability Insurance Cancer Claims: Long Term Disability Insurance is offered by employers as benefits packages to employees or sold by insurance companies to individuals. Although insurance providers say they'll pay Long Term Disability Benefits if you are unable to work, many will deny valid claims, minimize payments, or find ways to delay payments hoping you will give up and abandon your claim. Reasons in support of Long Term Disability Cancers claims include: - Cancer Treatment - Side-Effects from Medication - Invasive Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments All of which can leave the patient seriously fatigued and sick. As well as the effect of their cognitive function such as memory, focus and inability to absorb and analyze information. Insurance Companies will challenge this saying that the patient is exaggerating or not giving their maximum effort. If your insurer has denied your Cancer disability claim don't give up. A court of law may view the insurance companies denial much differently when all of the facts are raised and properly presented. An experienced disability insurance lawyer representing your claim can make a huge difference when fighting against a large insurance company.

Soldier Salutes His Service Dog By Staying With Him To The Bitter End
His name was Bodza and he was a hero. Not the typical avenger, but a fine, fierce four-footed version of the soldier we support whole-heartedly. That’s right, Bodza was a dog, one trained to sniff out bombs as part of the military’s many faceted fight against terrorism. While working in Iraq, this explosives expert came in contact with Kyle Smith. The two became fast friends and even more committed partners. Throughout their time together, both man and beast found time to not only do their very important job, but work in a little playtime in between. Bodza retired from service, Kyle knew what he had to do. Adopting his brother in arms, he made sure his pal had the cushiest life possible. Then, tragedy struck. In 2016, Bodza was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy, an incurable disease of the spinal cord. Knowing he had to end his friend’s suffering, he decided to have the animal put down. In the emotional moment, Kyle makes Bodza’s last days very special indeed. And why not – a hero of his caliber deserves such treatment. Rest in peace, brave warrior. You served your country, and your human, well. *************************************** Thank you very much for all the love and Support .❤️ Follow me : FACEBOOK ► https://www.facebook.com/nollygrionews INSTAGRAM ► https://www.instagram.com/nollygriomedia TWITTER ► https://twitter.com/Nollygriomedia WEBSITE ► http://www.nollygriomedia.com/ ***************************************

I-Team: They Never Touched Vietnamese Soil -- Why These Vets Still Claim Agent Orange Made Them Sick
By: Randy Travis Aired: Aug 23 2018 ROSWELL, Ga. - Senator Johnny Isakson holds the key for thousands of Vietnam vets unable to get disability benefits even though they claim Agent Orange made them sick. These are not the soldiers or Marines who fought in the jungles. They're already covered for health problems caused by the notorious herbicide. The issue involves 70,000 veterans who never set foot on Vietnamese soil, but got to within 12 miles of the coast. The so-called Blue Water Navy. "I really believe that we were exposed," said retired Navy sonar technician Dave VanNess. "And certainly some of my shipmates more so than me." Dave VanNess thumbs through a book detailing his time on the USS Joseph Strauss in 1973. He believes Agent Orange is to blame for his health problems, even though he never stepped foot on Vietnamese soil. Dave has Parkinson's Disease and prostate cancer, two of the 14 ailments associated with an ill-fated decision for which our country continues to pay. It's known as Agent Orange. The military dumped millions of gallons of the dangerous herbicide over the jungles of Vietnam from 1962 to 1975, all aimed at denying the enemy a place to hide. Years later, scientists realized a byproduct of Agent Orange, called dioxin, was causing chronic illnesses in Vietnam veterans. They can now get service-connected disability benefits. But not every Vietnam vet qualifies. Not those who served off the coast. In 1973, Dave VanNess was on the destroyer USS Joseph Strauss. “It is unfair because that Agent Orange didn't just stay on land," he explained. "There were many rivers. We know that the water from the rivers flows to the sea. It's going to carry the Agent Orange with it and it did." Blue Water Navy supporters cite an Australian study that found Agent Orange could have contaminated the water sailors used for drinking or showering since ships used desalinated seawater for their fresh water needs. This summer, the U.S. House of Representatives voted unanimously to include Blue Water Navy Vietnam vets for Agent Orange benefits. But the bill must still clear the Senate. And that's where Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson comes in. “We're going to make sure we don't leave any stone unturned in getting the information out necessary to make an educated decision," Isakson told his Senate Veterans Affairs committee before a hearing August 1. "Our veterans deserve no better than that." Rather than schedule a vote for the committee he chairs, Senator Isakson has only held that hearing, where representatives from the Veterans Administration took a surprising position. “We oppose this bill because the science is not there," stressed Dr. Paul Lawrence of the V.A. Benefits Administration. "And what we do depends on science.” According to the V.A., because sailors like Dave VanNess primarily stayed at least 12 miles off the coast per Navy policy, the odds of him getting sick from Agent Orange are minimal. “The National Academy of Medicine reviewed all available scientific evidence, concluding that it was unable to state with certainty that Blue Water Navy personnel were or were not exposed to Agent Orange,” Dr. Lawrence testified. But many committee members were unconvinced. “Our Blue Water veterans who are in need of service, we shouldn't even be here talking about this," responded Senator Joe Machin, D-WVa. "I mean, I don't think they're asking for that much.” The V.A's estimate for giving Agent Orange disability benefits to Blue Water Navy Vets: $500 million dollars over 10 years. The House bill calls for it to be paid by increasing the cost of V.A. loans another $250 for every $100,000 borrowed. Critics doubt that will be enough to cover the entire cost. Isakson's office says because he chairs the committee he is remaining neutral in the debate. They say he hopes to schedule a vote by the end of the year.

Singer/Songwriter Raven Quinn: How I Survived My Breast Cancer!
did you know that 1 in 8 women living in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime? Singer/songwriter, children's books illustrator, and breast cancer survivor, Raven Quinn is an amazing woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31. With no history in her family, her diagnosis left her in utter shock and disbelief. "Cancer is a physical, mental, and spiritual battle," said Quinn. When diagnosed, Raven sought out a place where she felt comfortable to fight her battle; that place was Southern California based Breastlink, a leader in breast health needs. "I don't feel like I'm going to a medical facility. I feel like I'm going home." Now 32, Raven Quinn is using her music to give back. Breastlink created such a positive experience for Raven that she decided to donate half of the proceeds from her album "The Acoustic EP" to Breastlink and the Cancer Research Collaboration, a non-profit founded by Breastlink with the goal to end cancer once and for all!

Citizen Soldier: Change and Challenges - Women in Today's Military
Sponsored by Easter Seals, Inc with additional support from Chicago Foundation for Women. Moderated by Stacey Baca of ABC 7 News, this distinguished panel discusses the important issues facing female veterans in today's military. As the number of women serving in the military continues to grow, their roles are also evolving, as is the way that the military and Veterans Administration address their service. The panel discusses some of the issues facing female veterans, including their roles in today's combat operations, military sexual trauma, and the transition into civilian society. Erica Borggren was appointed Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs by Governor Pat Quinn on August 5, 2011. As the Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs (IDVA), she is creating a new Women Veterans Program to help address the issue that women veterans often do not self-identify as veterans and do not take advantage of veterans' benefits to the same extent as their male peers. An Illinois native and Army Veteran, Borggren previously served as a senior staff member for Army Gen. David H. Petraeus. Borggren was awarded the Defense Meritorious Service Medal and the Bronze Star as well as the Joint Service Achievement and Iraq Campaign Medals. Following her graduation as valedictorian from the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, she was designated as a Rhodes Scholar and the recipient of a Truman Scholarship. She later earned a master's degree in comparative social policy from Oxford University. Dr. Rebecca J. Hannagan joined the faculty of Political Science at Northern Illinois University in 2006 and became an Associate of Women's Studies and an Associate of the Center for the Study of Family Violence and Sexual Assault in 2010. She specializes in the biological underpinnings of political attitudes and behavior with particular focus on gender differences. Dr. Hannagan's research includes a 2011 study with Holly Arrow, Ph.D: "Reengineering Gender Relations in Modern Militaries: An Evolutionary Perspective." She is currently a Visiting Associate Professor at Portland (OR) State University where she is gathering data from service women regarding their experiences, as well as organizing campus events around the issue of Military Sexual Assault. Her research has been published in Political Behavior, Perspectives on Politics, PS: Political Science and Politics, and other journals and edited volumes. At NIU she teaches courses in Political Psychology, Biopolitics, and American Government. Kimberly Mitchell serves as the Deputy Director of the Dixon Center. Her 17 years of service in the U.S. Navy included a commission as a Surface Warfare Officer, service aboard several surface Navy combatant warships, and multiple shore tours in Washington, D.C. Her last active duty assignment, which began in 2010, was Deputy Director for the Office of Warrior and Family Support in the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dixon Center is a clearinghouse for collaboration, communication, sharing lessons learned, and innovative solutions delivered locally for all who serve and have served in our military. It serves as coordinating agent for the myriad of entities and individuals supporting active military and veterans, and their families, and families of our fallen during transition and reintegration.

Risk of Skin Cancer in the Military
In this news segment from KPBS San Diego Dr. Groff talks about the risks of skin cancer in the military. https://clderm.com Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CLDerm/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/clderm Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cosmeticlas... Share this video: https://youtu.be/cwpJ4FTi1g0 For those serving in the military, little is being done to protect the troops from exposure to skin cancer. Studies have found that those in the Air Force are the most vulnerable due to pilots being at high altitude. The exhaust from jet engines also may be a factor in skin cancer. Troops are not issued sunscreen, most buy their own or rely on care packages from home. Dr. Groff recommends taking a photo of your mole, then take another photo of the same spot a few months later to see if there are any changes. If there are, see a doctor. If you have anything else you would like addressed, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Groff at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego.

Interview with Dr. Hania Morsi Fadl - OBE (Order of The British Empire)
Big Interview with Dr. Hania Morsi Fadl - OBE and founder of Khartoum Breast Care Centre Dr. Hania graduated from Faculty of Medicine Alexandria University in 1970; and practiced medicine in Sudan from 1970 to 1974. In 1974 she received a governmental scholarship to specialize in diagnostic radiology in the UK (St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. London). From 1987 to 1990 she worked as a general consultant radiologist for the UK National Health Service in hospitals in Birmingham & London. In 1990 she was appointed consultant Breast Radiologist for the UK National Breast Cancer Screening Program (Chairing Cross Hospital & North London BCSS), a position she held until 2008. This wealth of long experience in breast cancer diagnoses and treatment inspired Dr. Hania to setup Khartoum Breast Care Centre (KBCC) in Sudan.

Abortion - Breast Cancer Link
Show Information Air Date: April 23, 2012 Host: Jim Schneider Guest: Karen Malec Karen Malec is the President and Co-Founder of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. She has written articles and regularly speaks on the links between abortion and breast cancer and has testified before various state legislatures. Despite the fact that most cancer-fighting organizations either ignore, or deny the link between abortion and a woman's likelihood of developing breast cancer, the evidence for such a link is credible and overwhelming. In fact, many of these same organizations recommend that a woman carry her first pregnancy to term and breast feed the baby to mature the cells that would be susceptible to cancer. Further studies show that even after an abortion, carrying the next baby to term and breast feeding will minimize the increased cancer risk due to the abortion alone. Even the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which is funded by taxpayer dollars, has denied such a link, citing only a few of the available studies—the ones that show no link—while a majority of studies available showed a definite likelihood of breast cancer after an abortion. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which raises millions of dollars to fight breast cancer, briefly chose to stop sending funds to Planned Parenthood in part because of the link between abortion and breast cancer. When they did so, their rate of donations nearly doubled immediately. But Planned Parenthood rallied support from the media and prominent Democratic lawmakers to decry the loss of "pregnancy care" including mammograms (which Planned Parenthood does not provide), and to propose an end to donations to Komen. Eventually Komen caved in, and recently announced plans to support 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates, even though PP is the nation's largest abortion provider, which already receives millions of taxpayer dollars. Karen recommends contacting Congress to investigate the National Cancer Institute, and especially its head, Dr. Harold Varmus, for refusing to include the credible evidence for the link between abortion and breast cancer, instead continuing to claim that there is no link. Komen for the Cure can also be contacted to let your views be known about their decision to resume support for Planned Parenthood.

Interesting facts about Israel | Know the Facts
Interesting Facts about Israel #Dairy & Agriculture Only the cows of South Korea can easily compete with the cows of Israel when it comes to producing milk. It is worth noticing that Israel’s agricultural output has increased sevenfold from past 25 years yet & its water usage has remained practically unchanged. Israel embarked the 21st century with more trees in its territory than it had in the 20th century being the only country to do so. #Education Israel has its own highest ratio of university degrees for population in the world. It can be related to the fact that, Israel has the world’s second highest rank of new books. Furthermore, each Israeli student – male or female – has to go through mandatory military service after completed graduation. #Solar Power Utilization Israel utilizes solar power to a large extent. Water heating is one of the major uses in which solar power is put to. The statistics show that nine out of ten homes do this. The first ever large scale power generating plant that is powered by solar energy and its functional fully was set up by an Israeli company in Mojave Desert in South California. #Notes for Blind One of the most unusual and interesting fact about Israel is that, Israel’s bank notes have Braille markings on them.it is facility for blind people to identify them easily. #Security We can see geographically that, Israel is a small country. But, it has one of the largest Air forces. No doubt, It is the country which spends much larger sums of money for security than any other country in the whole world. Also, Israel designed the airline industry’s most impenetrable(heavy)flight security. Other country’s officials now look towards Israel for advice on how to handle airborne security threats. #Technology The Israelis have contributed to modern word with several impotent innovations. These include: AOL Instant Messenger technology Windows NT and XP the voicemail system Pentium-4 processors at Intel the ever useful cell phone. You can find all the highly technical and technological companies in the world. Take Microsoft for instance. The number of employees ranks from Israel outranks those from any other part of the world. #Medicine & Research Israeli scientists have developed the first fully computerized, no-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer. One Israeli company developed a computerized system for ensuring proper medicine administration, thus removing chances of human error from medical treatment. Israel has also developed the first ingestible video camera, too small it fits inside a pill. This camera use for doctors diagnose cancer and also for digestive disorders. Researchers in Israel have developed a new device, that directly helps the heart to pump blood. #Economy Israel ranked second in the world for venture capital funds. Israel’s $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined together. #History & Culture “Mini Israel” park is an attempt to reduplicate all models of importance in the areas of history and culture, 285 duplicates have been created and displayed. Israel also stands on the top in number of museums per head in the world. #Bird Traffic Israel also has one of the highest levels of bird traffic in the world. Over 500 million migrating birds move across its airspace. ======================================= Video and Audio: Copyright 2016 Know the facts =======================================

Chris Busby, Nuclear Power and Cancer in North Wales near Wylfa Part 1
Welsh Language ITV flagship programme Byd ar Bedwar (20/12/2011) investigates breast cancer increases downwind of the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station on Anglesey. Dr Chris Busby was commissioned by the programme to investigate cancer death rates in the 11 wards surrounding the plant. He found a significant 60% excess risk in women dying between 1999 and 2008 in the downwind wards compared with the distant wards. There was also two-fold excess lung cancer risk in men in Amlwch Port downwind of the plant. Busby had previously studied cancer near three other nuclear power stations, Hinkley Point in Somerset, Bradwell in Essex and Trawsfynydd in Wales. All three have statistically significant excess risk of breast cancer in those living near the contaminated areas. The Bradwell breast cancers were associated with living near the contaminated coastal sediment of the R Blackwater estuary. A joint CERRIE commissioned study between Busby, the nuclear industry (Richard Wakeford) and NRPB was shut down in 2004 by the committee chairman when it became apparent that Busby's figures were correct and those of the government's Small Area Health Statistics Unit incorrect. Latest figures for Burnham-on-Sea, downwind of the Hinkley Point plant show a continued excess breast cancer mortality, supporting the many earlier studies carried out by Busby's Green Audit. The Hinkley site is contaminated with enriched uranium. (See www.llrc.org, www.stophinkley.org, www.greenaudit.org and the CERRIE Minority Report.) Data supplied by the official Public Health Wales obtained under a Freedom of Information request by ITV show a significant child leukemia excess in the downwind wards for the period 1974-2008. Ex-nuclear industry chief scientist Richard Wakeford, who denied these links when working for BNFL Sellafield, was recently appointed to the government's COMARE committee who advise on radiation risk.

What is AWARENESS RIBBON? What does AWARENESS RIBBON mean? AWARENESS RIBBON meaning & explanation
What is AWARENESS RIBBON? What does AWARENESS RIBBON mean? AWARENESS RIBBON meaning - AWARENESS RIBBON definition - AWARENESS RIBBON explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Awareness ribbons are symbols meant to show support or raise consciousness for a cause. Different colours and patterns are associated with different issues. Yellow ribbons, in the United States, are used to show that a close family member is abroad in military service. In Russia, Belarus and other countries of the former Soviet Union, gold and black striped ribbons are used to celebrate the Allies' victory in World War II (9 May), or in modern times, to signal loyalty to Putin and the Kremlin. Of the uses of ribbons to draw awareness to health issues, perhaps the best-known is the pink ribbon for support of those with breast cancer. Other health and social concerns which have adopted coloured ribbons include Alzheimer's disease (purple), HIV/AIDS (red), bipolar disorder (green), and brain disorder or disability (silver). Political use of ribbons include red ribbons worn to commemorate the October Revolution (7 November) in the former Soviet Union, and orange ribbons in the Orange Revolution in Ukraine. Other ornaments, including flowers (of specific kinds), bracelets and badges may serve essentially the same purpose of drawing attention to a cause. These include poppies, rosettes and wristbands. The first ribbons that were represented as meaningful objects in history were the tokens given to knights during the Middle Ages in Europe. The yellow ribbon came from the Puritan Army during the English Civil War. From there, it spread to the Americas, where the Army of the United States became associated with it. A yellow ribbon was mentioned in a marching song, sung by the military in the United States. In the year 1917 George A. Norton copyrighted the song for the first time. The title of the song was "Round Her Neck She Wears a Yeller Ribbon". In the 1940s the song was rewritten by several musicians. In the early 1970s, the song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" was released, and based on this song, a wife of a hostage in Iran, Penney Laingen, was the first who used the ribbon as an awareness symbol. She tied yellow ribbons around trees, to illustrate desire for her husband coming home. Her friends and family members followed the trend. As many individuals were able to see this message, the "ribbon became a medium". In May 1986, the AIDS Faith Alliance, later to be known as Christian Action on AIDS, held an open conference on AIDS at Notting Hill Gate in London, supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury and other United Kingdom Christian church leaders. Rainbow Ribbons were given to everybody attending. The purpose of Christian Action on AIDS, an official Church of England charity whose founder/chairman was Barnaby Miln, was to get the worldwide Christian churches involved in the crisis that was AIDS. The Christian Action on AIDS to fold in 1991. In 1991, the red ribbon was created by the Visual AIDS Artists Caucus, a New York-based group of artists and AIDS activist. They wished to create a visual symbol to demonstrate compassion for people living with AIDS and their caregivers. The color red was chosen for its, "connection to blood and the idea of passion"—both anger and love. During the 1991 Tony Awards, actor Jeremy Irons, wore the bright red ribbon pinned on his chest. Though the symbolism of the ribbon was not allowed to be discussed on air, the media and public noticed the eye catching ribbon, and its popularity grew overnight. The red ribbon was purposefully not copyrighted in the United States, to allow it to be worn and used widely as a symbol in the fight against AIDS. The year 1992 was declared by The New York Times as "The year of the Ribbon". Upon its popularity, fashion designer, Isaac Mizrahi once stated "I love the red ribbon. It ruins whatever you're wearing, it does not work compositionally, it's the wrong color, it throws your hair off, and who cares, because you have human feelings and you are showing them." Today the red ribbon is an internationally recognized symbol of AIDS Awareness and a design icon. It has led the way for many other color ribbons and awareness projects.
