UPDATE: This show did not air as scheduled due to technical difficulties on BlogTalkRadio. Please join MomRN next Monday, March 31st at 1 pm EST to hear these guests and many more! Wade Hayes, country singer and advanced colorectal cancer advocate, joins us to discuss his brand new album and song that he is launching for Colon Cancer Awareness Month—“Go Live Your Life.” Wade was inspired to write this deeply personal song after his oncologist told him he no longer had evidence of the disease after two bouts with colorectal cancer, a disease that impacts more than 136,000 Americans each year with about one in five having an advanced form.The song summarizes Wade’s attitude and he hopes it can inspire people going through difficult times to stay strong. The campaign will also give back to the patients who need it most: for every iTunes download of “Go Live Your Life,” a donation of a $1 (up to $50,000) will be made by Genentech to the Colon Cancer Alliance Blue Note Fund, a non-profit that supports advanced colorectal cancer patients. Dr. Manish Shah, an oncologist specializing in advanced colorectal cancer also joins Wade to talk about advanced colorectal cancer signs, symptoms and diagnosis. Also on today's show, Southern cooking expert Rebecca Lang shares Easter holiday traditions and tips! Patrice Washington, personal finance expert, shares tax tips & how we can save some money this year. Dr. Sue Samson, an endocrinologist and the medical director of the Pituitary Center at Baylor College of Medicine and St. Luke’s Medical Center, specializing in pituitary disorders, joins us to discuss acromegaly and new treatment options. Finally, we have Bravo’s Top Chef Winner, Chef Stephanie Izard, who is helping to create the first-ever Pinterest cookbook!
