Warm wishes for a wonderful Memorial Day weekend to our American
readers & friends!
Make time to go outside as we put on that summer mindset.
This week, many health professionals prescribed nature is becoming a form of medicine…
Under a new initiative, Park Rx America, doctors are prescribing visits to local parks along with more traditional medicine to boost patient health. Take a closer look.
Our Chicago area friends are welcoming The Who to the area for a concert this week, so it’s the perfect time to share an update on The Who’s charity and my community partner, Teen Cancer America (TCA).
AYA Patients Attend “Cancer Rebellion” Movie Premier
The AYA (Adolescent and Young Adult) Child Life Specialist, Kara Noskoff and 12 of her patients from CHOC (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) recently attended a screening of Cancer Rebellion at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Presented by Teen Cancer America and film Director/Producer Hernan Barangan, who himself a cancer survivor.
“This was especially meaningful for me as I was able to attend with my patients from CHOC Children’s,” said Kara. “Working with adolescent and young adult (AYA) oncology patients the past few years has opened my eyes to their experience battling cancer as a young person and I am passionate about advocating for better care and resources for this population.”
Congrats Hernan and TCA team! After the film was finished, young people from the crowd had time to ask several questions. One of them specifically asked, “what made you want to make this movie?”
UPDATE: "Cancer Rebellion" film has just been released on DVD and Amazon Prime!
Check out this special event with TCA: For one unforgettable evening in London, on July 6th, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who will join Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder for a truly singular concert performance in the legendary Wembley Arena.
