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.

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."

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/ ***************************************

"Direct Order" Documentary (Full) - Soldiers Ordered To Take Anthrax Vaccine & Got Brain Damaged
"Direct Order": An Award-Winning Documentary Tells the Story of Members of the Military who were Ordered Against their Will to Take the Controversial Anthrax Vaccine. "I'd rather have caught a bullet from an AK 47 than gotten injected with this stuff. At least I would have known what my fate would have been." Federal regulators approved a plan by biotechnology company, VaxGen to test its experimental anthrax vaccine on about 100 people. The human volunteers were injected with the experimental vaccine to see if it's safe and produces the desired immune response. VaxGen was awarded a $13.6 million federal contract to begin work on the anthrax vaccine. The company is applied for two more anthrax vaccine contracts. The contracts were awarded for advanced testing and manufacturing of 25 million doses. In the last few years, a number of published studies have linked anthrax vaccination to the development of Gulf War Syndrome, among them a study in the British medical journal the Lancet. Hundreds of soldiers have refused the shots after evidence emerged that the vaccinations are connected to a variety of illnesses. But then the Bush administration went on the offensive. The Pentagon funded an Institute of Medicine study which concluded in March 2002 the anthrax vaccine is safe and effective against all anthrax strains and routes of infection. Its conclusions were based on unpublished research--also funded by the Pentagon. The story doesn't stop there. Bioport, the nation's sole, licensed anthrax vaccine lab has repeatedly failed FDA inspections which found among other things, contamination. The FDA cleared BioPort's manufacturing plant to begin producing the vaccine again in January 2002--months after the letters containing anthrax were sent to Congress and news organizations. Bioport was also allowed to distribute the 500,000 doses of the vaccine already in stock. The vaccine was offered to some postal workers and others who were exposed. But most refused to take it. The anthrax vaccine is mandatory for all military service members assigned to "high-risk" areas. At least part of the six-shot series, which takes a year and a half to administer, has been given to about 700,000 service members. It will be eventually administered to all 2.5 million service members. Since 1998, when the vaccinations began, nearly 500 active-duty service-members have refused the vaccine, and more than 100 have been court-martialed. According to government figures, approximately 500 to 1,000 pilots and flight crew members have quit, resigned or transferred from the Air National Guard or reserves rather than take the vaccine. Award-winning documentary "Direct Order" tells the story of members of the military who were ordered against their will to receive the controversial anthrax vaccine. "Direct Order"--award-winning documentary directed by Scott Miller and narrated by Michael Douglas. Courtesy of Scott Miller and democracynow.org 2003.

euronews science - Missile-like breast cancer treatment is on target
http://www.euronews.com/ A new therapy for treating breast cancer could increase life expectancy by 50 percent for sufferers. T-DM1 has been praised by cancerologists for its effectiveness at fighting cancer with minimal side-effects. T-DM1 was developed by an American firm with the Roche group and gives a survival advantage of 65 percent after two years of therapy. The treatment avoids noxious side effects by giving chemotherapy direct to the tumour cell. When the substances come together, trastuzumab recognises the cancer cell and clings to it. Then DM1, an extremely toxic substance, pours poison onto the tumour, killing the diseased cells. Professor Xavier Pivot, cancerology unit at the Jean Minjoz University hospital explains: "The spread of the disease outside the breast is minimal and afterwards, we talk about giving additional treatment - when we do this, it's only for a very limited time. We cure 8 or 9 out of 10 women with this therapy." Anne-Christine Julia is a social worker who's been taking part in the experimental therapy following a relapse, five years after she first beat breast cancer. "I use the word remission, I've already been through one cancer this is my second so I think I'm in remission, my oncologist says I'm cured." She said. According to oncologists, this treatment could pave the way for an arsenal of more effective, less toxic anti-cancer weapons.

About Face: How the Army Gave a Man Direction
At 19, Adrea Benedetti was at a road block. His father was killed when he was 3, and his mom died of breast cancer ten years later. His grandmother raised him, and when he dropped out of high school at 16, he moved in with family, then with friends. One day while walking to work, an Army recruiter pulled over and gave him her card. He joined the Army three weeks later, and now is going to the University of Maryland University College on the GI Bill. He is studying criminal justice and hopes to one day join the Army as an officer, or to pursue a career in the FBI. (Video by Jessica Wilde, Capital News Service)

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.

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.
