This is Using Your Brain!
A few years ago, shortly after moving to the Bay Area, Laura Kwist began having horrible headaches. Doctors conducted dozens of tests before discovering she had a brain tumor and needed surgery immediately! While she was recovering from her successful surgery, Laura found out about the Brain Tumor Society and the good they do for brain tumor patients all over America. She decided to become a volunteer, and she came to talk about that work helping others like her and the annual Brain Tumor Walk, set for Sunday, June 24th at San Francisco’s Crissy Field. You can learn more at www.braintumor.org, or just listen to Laura’s story here.

At Home With Kidney Disease
Kidney disease is hard on everyone: for years, family members needed to step up to take patients to treatments, which take hours, and patients needed to take off work to get the help they needed to stay alive. That’s the way it was for people with kidney disease, Kidney Disease Director of Dialysis Education Joanna Lee Newman discusses Satellite Healthcare’s breakthrough in kidney dialysis treatment, led by Dr. Norman Coplon in the 1970’s, when he put in action his vision for providing at-home healthcare services for kidney dialysis patients. Dr. Coplon and Satellite Healthcare, together with the National Kidney Foundation, have changed the lives of patients with kidney disease. Hear the story here!
