SEASON 2 Ep. 4: ”Giving Our Loved Ones One Last Wave” with Guest Dan Fischer

August 11, 2022

When we think of loss--of the grief we suffer from it, we don't typically see grief as a strength.

Grief can either consume us or be used to shatter our fears and sadness and teach us a strength we never knew we had in us. In this episode we talk about the obstacles of moving through grief- the understanding and patience that is needed. Seeing the hope that floats up through our grief is a powerful tool, and our guest Dan Fischer talks about how he used his grief to find new hope and to honor his late father by giving him one last wave. That led to an amazing project that is now helping thousands of people across the globe move through their own grief to heal and find new hope in their own journeys.

SEASON 2 Ep. 3: ”Tell People You Love Them & Live Life!” Brain Cancer Patient Ian Youngblood

July 28, 2022

Being a front-line worker at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic is hard enough. What happens when you go from front-line work to patient? Episode 3 hears the story of Ian Youngblood, a 29 year-old nurse sent to NYC as COVID-19 started to ravage our country. He quickly went from treating others to being treated, but not for COVID, for a grade 3 Anaplastic oligodendroglioma--brain cancer. Three years later, Ian talks about that day, and how he sees the world now.

SEASON 2 Ep 2: ”Can a Chemical in Our Bodies Help Fight off Glioblastoma? Guests Dr.’s Chris Hine & Justin Lathia Explain”

June 30, 2022

We're taking a trip back to high school chemistry in this episode! The chemical compound H2S, better known as the gaseous chemical Hydrogen Sulfide--the one that puts off a "rotten eggs" smell, is found in many natural environment settings. However, did you know that Hydrogen Sulfide is produced in small amounts in our bodies? This over-looked compound has a variety of important physiological effects, especially as we age. Dr. Chris Hine has been studying these benefits and how H2S may actually help stave off Glioblastoma (GBM)! Both Dr.'s Hine and Lathia have been hard at work at the Lerner Research Institute at Cleveland Clinic finding out-of-the-box ways to better treat or help prevent brain cancers such as GBM. In this episode, we take a deeper look into their work.

SEASON 2 Ep 1: ”No One Changes When Things are Easy”– with Guest & GBM Patient Harry Lorusso

May 26, 2022

Harry Lorusso was diagnosed with GBM at just 33 years old. He said of his diagnosis, "No one changes when things are easy. The type of people my wife and I are today, we wouldn't have become without GBM."

A week after his diagnosis, he and his fiancé got married. A year later they had a son. And now they've started the Outlier Fund. Three years in and Harry is not only in "no evidence" phase at 36 years old, but he just ran 26 miles in the Pittsburgh Marathon! Harry talks to me about the clinical trial that has given him three years thus far, the importance of attitude, gratitude, and viewing his diagnosis as a blessing. It's an episode you won't want to miss!!

**Also, don't miss Game On Glio's documentary film shot on location with Harry as he ran the Pittsburgh Marathon. The full special video can be found on our YouTube page

Ep11: ”Heart Broken Open: Expressing Grief & Loss” –with Guest Kristine Carlson

February 24, 2022

Author Kristine Carlson is truly living her motto, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff." After the death of her famous husband Dr. Richard Carlson, co-author of the series Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, Kristine plunged into finding a way to walk through grief. In doing so, she broke open her heart, allowing the grief to work it's way through and eventually releasing her to a higher purpose and a fuller life.

In this video/audio episode, we get real about the struggles of being women walking through widowhood, grief, and the profound loss of our soulmates-our husbands. We laugh, we cry, and we share intimate details with you, our listeners. Kristine's journey is eye-opening and inspirational. So much so, Lifetime made her story into a Lifetime movie starring Heather Locklear. It's an exciting episode you won't want to miss.

Ep 10: ”I haven’t yet accomplished what I’ve set out to do.” –with Guest Dr. Sanai

January 27, 2022

It's not every day you get a chance to speak to a neurologist who has some sliver of an idea of what we as caregivers/patients walk through.

Indiana Jones once said, "If You Want To Be A Good Archeologist, You Gotta Get Out Of The Library!”

My guest Dr. Sanai shares a similar view! A rare and unique experience led him down the path of neuro-oncology and ultimately to heading up the Ivy Brain Tumor Center. 

Hear his story and what led him to the work he's doing now. Plus hear about some of Ivy's phase 0 clinical trials that patients can participate in now!

For more information on Dr. Sanai and the work that Ivy Brain Tumor Center is doing visit:
