The Walk Around the World for Brain Tumor Awareness is over. Read about some of the heroes and heroines of the trek:
BRAIN TUMOUR SUPPORTERS WALK THE EQUIVALENT OF MORE THAN TWICE AROUND THE WORLD
The world is waking up to some gritty realities for brain tumor patients and survivors of the surgeries. I hope this message soothes readers who are struggling with loved ones and friends who just don't "get it" about the struggles to cope with Meningiomas, Glioblastomas, Acoustic Neuromas plus other types of brain tumors.
Trying to understand what treatments such as Chemotherapy, Gamma Knife, Brain Surgery, Radiation and their after-effects are all about just adds to the fear of having the tumor in the first place. The good news is that compassionate people are working to improve the whole situation. On many levels.

BRAIN TUMOUR AWARENESS WEEK A SUCCESS – CALL FOR ASSISTANCE TO THOSE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
My prayers for the people in California join yours . May they be blessed to have strength to recover from the horror burning their homes and state.
I've added this update about FIRE SAFETY to my blog as a timely lesson. Everyone needs to know its message.
Here's a Life-Saving tip about putting out grease fires: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZGzbd0IvUE
NEVER toss water onto a grease fire. Water is heavier than cooking oil. Water sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. On the open field it becomes a fireball resembling a nuclear blast. Inside a kitchen the fireball would hit the ceiling, filling the entire room.
And NEVER throw sugar or flour on grease fires! The explosive force kills and maims its victims.
May all your meals be as pleasant as this spread:
