Patient Scrubs® Supports Liver Cancer Patients

As you know, my Patient Scrubs® business brings me in contact with many people who have terminal illnesses. Cancer is one disease that takes the lives of so many people. I’ve blogged before about being a breast cancer survivor. Today, I want to talk about liver cancer. The largest organ in the human body is the liver.

Patient Scrubs® New Book Debuts

My book, A Prescription for Dignity…A Family’s Story of Struggle, Tragedy & Triumph, is finally out.  This was a difficult book to write because it’s hard to put feelings into words.
