Simon Fox, co-founder and executive director of the Adventures in Caring Foundation, reminds listeners that there is more to healing than good medical care.  Adventures in Caring has been pioneering the human side of health care for 30 years.  They teach the art of compassion to our future healthcare workers.  In addition, they understand that burnout and compassion fatigue are occupational hazards of healthcare and emergency responders.  In response to their need, Adventures in Caring created  a course and DVD called Oxygen for Caregivers–to  help them to care for themselves.

 Beverlye Hyman Fead is a multi-talented dynamo.  She is an artist, author, documentary producer, and cancer advocate.  In 2002, she was diagnosed with 4th stage metastisized cancer and given two months to live.  Rather than having invasive surgery, Beverlye chose a treatment that makes the cancer manageable.  Today, like millions of others, she lives–and lives well, with cancer.  Beverlye wrote two books that deal with cancer.  The first is entitled, I Can Do This: Living with Cancer, Tracing a Year of Hope. The next book was written with her grandaughter and helps children to understand cancer, especially when they have a family member who receives the diagnosis.  She’s presently working on a book entittled Aging in High Heels.  It explores the barriers that are being broken as the current generation grows older.
