 living the dream with Care Society of America founder Milly Velez | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1771

We as Americans are naturally enraptured by the commitment to community service as seen through the lens of a strong female - I’d love to introduce you to Mildred “Milly” Velez, the founder of the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America. Milly was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2007 and struggled with her search for answers for years. After years of enduring misguided and prejudiced medical care, she founded the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America in 2015. The Fibromyalgia Care Society of America is the only entity that provides specialized programs such as fresh food delivery and virtual assistance to the fibromyalgia community. An estimated 4-12 million+ people are living with fibromyalgia with little to no information or resources. In response to the lack of adequate education, treatment, and support for those living with Fibromyalgia, Milly and the FCSA came up with these services: • The Virtual Coordinated Care Program brings care, supportive services and telehealth directly to the person who may be homebound due to fibromyalgia or who may not always be able to travel to us given the complexities of living with fibromyalgia. This program provides an advantage as they are able to roll out services much quicker on a State Level vs. Cities/Counties.• The FCSA will launch its Center of Excellence Program with dedicated virtual supportive services that will offer training and coordinated care to individuals across the country. You can expect to find a team of care professionals who have the most up-to-date education on the care of fibromyalgia. Most importantly, individuals who are underinsured or have no insurance will be able to receive care and support regardless of their financial capabilities.• FibroCares is an innovative approach to caring for the community which offers a host of services such as: The Fresh Food delivery program, emergency financial support, employment assistance, and individualized support through a hotline.• The FCSA has launched a revolutionary approach to Empowerment Groups utilizing the principles of cognitive behavior therapy and group therapy sessions to offer attendees a concrete response to the emotions and challenges they are facing as a result of living with fibromyalgia.

 living the dream with author and vietnam war veteran Joseph Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2914

My name is Joseph Holmes. I am an experienced guest and as a result of hearing my story people are often moved to tears and become aware of their own angels and experience a new sense of hope, meaning, significance and joy in their lives. I am a survivor of childhood sexual trauma and a disabled (PTSD) combat veteran who, in 1991, went through a complete nervous breakdown resulting in the loss of my career and livelihood. I survived through the grace of God and my angels. I have a very simple message I believe will benefit your listening audience, as it has done for so many others. In 1991 my life turned upside down. A nervous breakdown followed by a period of deep depression ushered in my “dark night of the soul.” Over time I became aware of the angels around me, and my life with Mother Mary, and most notably Mary Magdalene (whom I affectionately call, “Maggie”) with her spiritual poetry Love Notes For Your Soul, began in earnest. It’s a spiritual story of “Angel Interventions” and transformation available to all of us.

 living the dream with singer/songwriter and jenetic scientist John blangero | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1091

recording artist, John Blangero, has made for himself. One listen to his soulful album, “Delta Tales” by alter-ego Sun King Rising will make the oddness of that pairing seem almost normal. Neither his music nor his work as a renowned genetic scientist are strange at all, it turns out. Call it “The Genetics of Soul.” Blangero quickly displayed prodigious musical gifts when he started taking piano lessons at age five in his hometown of New Castle, Pennsylvania. Five years later, he had absorbed not only the fundamentals of classical music, but also gospel and rock music. He joined his first rock band at 14 and was soon composing and singing his own music. Apprenticeships in a series of area bands culminated in the formation of his own original band, called Harlequin, with which he attained regional popularity throughout the fertile Pennsylvania/Ohio/West Virginia market At the height of the band’s popularity, though, he put music on the back burner to obtain his Ph.D. and become an active biomedical research scientist. During his twenty-year musical hiatus, he ascended to rock star stature in the international scientific community. But the music lying dormant within Blangero’s spirit would not remain silent. Playing casually with blues bands in San Antonio toward the end of the 21st century rekindled Blangero’s creative spark and prompted him to begin writing new songs. PeacockSunrise Records ● A division of Melodic Revolution Records 1065 E State Rd 434 ● Box 5133 ● Winter Springs, Florida ● 32708 Throughout its production, Blangero continued his work at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley while living in Port Isabel, TX. He and his colleagues at the University and throughout the world worked tirelessly on the genetics of human response to COVID-19 infection. That he was able to concurrently record the album is a powerful testament to Blangero’s amazing mind and talent. PeacockSunrise president, Nick Katona, recalls, “When I first heard John’s material, I thought ‘Oh my God, this music is amazing.’ I told him ‘You have got to release these songs. You've got to be on our label.” Blangero and Katona decided to focus their early marketing efforts on the U.K. and Europe during the first half of 2020. A big radio push and full-page ads in major music magazines like Classic Rock, RnR, Relix, and others resulted in many 4 and 5-star reviews, interviews, radio airplay, and massive Spotify streams. For the second half of this year, they are turning their attention to North and South America and to Sun King Rising’s second album. Plans are to record the second album in late Fall or early Winter, followed by live tours and festivals around the world on the heels of its Spring 2022 release.

Luck saved him, not Mark.

In the United States alone, it’s approximately 8,000 children—or nearly one child per hour, according to Safe Kids Worldwide. This isn't due to war, disease or famine. We're losing these children from accidental injuries, most of which could have been prevented - and it's time that changed. Mark was an Investigator in NYC working on Civil, Supreme and Federal Court cases for over 26 years and then he decided to pivot and take that skill-set to look at what the real reasons are this is happening, and what we can do to radically reduce the number of childhood deaths and injuries worldwide – and he believes it's by empowering parents with the knowledge, life-saving skills and access to the most trusted experts and resources to protect and keep their children safe. Mark subsequently became a Certified Infant, Child and Adult CPR, AED and First Aid Instructor and Water Safety Ambassador through the Amercan Red Cross.
