A few weeks ago, we had the privilege of meeting Erin Landry, a 28-year-old mother living in Phoenix, AZ. Erin lives with an array of severe and life-threatening allergies that have made a huge impact on her day-to-day life. But despite her hardships as an adult with severe allergies, it's Erin's optimism, strength, and hope that define her, not her allergies.

Although there are several other months during the year that are dedicated to the awareness of various types of cancer, National Cancer Control Month is a great time to look deeper into ways to prevent cancer and its treatment complications. The goal of National Cancer Control Month is for Americans to lead healthy and productive lives, whether or not they’ve been through cancer.
We all come across situations that can make daily life a challenge. Whether that's a car that chooses not to start or a life-altering medical diagnosis, we all have situations in life that need to be overcome, no matter how big or small. To Federal Employee and Kansas City native Carla Cona, being hearing impaired is just another one of those daily challenges.
Recently, we introduced our readers to some new friends of ours, the folks at the Kids With Courage Foundation. Kids With Courage is a Kansas City-area nonprofit organization that supports kids with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. With year-round support, education, social, and resource-oriented events the all-volunteer team at KWC are busy people. Add to that their annual One Inspired Evening Gala and their signature Crates Full of Courage efforts, through which they provide outstanding resources and much-needed support to newly diagnosed families at Children's Mercy Hospital, and you've got one amazing organization.
On World Health Day, the World Health Organization draws attention to a public health problem of global proportions. This year, the theme for World Health Day is vector-borne diseases.
Experts believe that nearly 7 million people in the United States have Angina, and Angina occurs equally in men and women. Not all chest pain or discomfort is a sign of Coronary Heart Disease. So, what exactly is Angina?
Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry was founded after CEO and Owner, LeAnn Carlson, created a stylish, interchangeable medical alert bracelet for a teenage girl with Type 1 Diabetes who simply refused to wear the unattractive, uncomfortable medical alert jewelry of the past. Since making that very first bracelet in 2001, Type 1 Diabetes has remained a high priority here at Lauren’s Hope. In addition to regularly attending diabetes events in our community; sending gift certificates, donations, and other forms of support to diabetes-related events and organizations around the world; and making a concerted effort to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes on a regular basis, Lauren’s Hope has donated well over $100,000 to the JDRF. When we say T1D is important around here, we really do mean it.
