Show Description:
Nana, What's Cancer?

How do you explain a disease as potentially scary as cancer to a young child? Children are naturally curious and love to ask questions, but sometimes, when the subject is as complicated as cancer, it can be tricky for adults to provide answers that are both simple and sufficiently informative.
In 2002, author and stage IV cancer survivor Beveryle Hyman Fead was given two months to live. Seven years later, she's teamed up with her 11-year-old granddaughter, Tessa Mae Hamermesh, to pen 'Nana, What's Cancer?' This loving conversation between grandmother and granddaughter forms a book that tackles the tough quetions about cancer, in a kid-friendly but honest way.


Guest Bio:

Beverlye Hyman Fead's winning battle with cancer was the subject of her memoir, I Can Do This: Living with Cancer, Tracing a Year of Hope.
An experimental treatment allows her to live well and actively with stage IV cancer, writing, painting, and spending time with her husband and five grandchildren. She is a Legislative Ambassador and Hero of Hope for the American Cancer Society, and has been honored by the Israel Cancer Research Foundation of California and presented with the Courage Award from the Sarcoma Foundation of America. This October, she'll be honored at the Jennifer Diamond Foundation Gala for her work with cancer. Beverlye has made it her life's work to share her story, and offer hope and encouragement to all those on the cancer journey.

Tessa Mae Hamermesh conceived the idea for this book, and began writing 'Nana, What's Cancer?' with her Nana Beverlye, when she was just 8 years old. Now 11, she is dedicated to helping other kids understand the realities and effects of cancer, and to inspiring people to help defeat cancer once and for all.

08/31 - Catherine Bradford, HOST
Radio Worth Waiting For!

 Hello everyone! Well, as much as I had wanted to begin broadcasting The Catherine Bradford Show as soon as July 16th on LA Talk Radio, it appears that we are all going to have to wait for that DEBUT SHOW. Over this past week circumstances (family matters) have created the need for me to postpone my opening show from airing, and so, we will all have to wait. I am hoping to have made it to the other side of these events within a short period of time, but until then, I am asking for your patience.  In the meantime, while taking this short and temporary hiatus from being on air live, I want to invite you to keep c...
