Remembering Liam

January 2, 2008 was the happiest day in Michelle and Christopher Schulze’s lives. That was the day when their son, Liam Christopher, was born.

Their happiness turned to concern when, at the age of 4 months, Liam started having high fevers that recurred at the same time every month, lasting about a week. Visits to numerous doctors, including many specialists, and a lot of tests couldn’t explain what was happening to Liam.

Home Sweet Medical Home

Imagine being a partner in your own health with your primary care physician and other professionals who comprise your personal health care team.

You can easily get in touch with members of your team, no matter when you need them. You and your team work together to keep you healthy by focusing on prevention through education, monitoring and regular check-ups. If you have a chronic illness like heart disease or diabetes, you take an active role, along with your team, in managing your condition. Some of your consultations with your team are “virtual” through e-mail, Web sites or home monitoring equipment. If you require specialized care, your team coordinates your visits to other physicians so you get only the tests, medications and procedures you need.


Talking About Cancer

It’s a hard subject to talk about. But author Jodi Aldrich says talking to people about cancer can save your life.

Aldrich knows firsthand what it’s like to live through a battle with cancer. Her husband, Gordon, died at age 45 of a rare form of cancer. Aldrich chronicled her family’s experiences in two books, The Saving of Gordon: Lifelines to W-I-N Against Cancer (Cancer Lifeline Publications, 2009, $19.95, and The Losing of Gordon: A Beacon Through the Storm Called "Grief" (Cancer Lifeline Publications, 2009, $15.95,

Many people turn away and run from a cancer discussion, Aldrich says, but networking with cancer patients, survivors and experts is “our best method of gathering information to help us make smart decisions.” And when it comes to cancer, “knowledge is your armor, and the right cancer treatment is your weapon.”


If You Can't Stand the Heat

When the thermometer hits the 90s, our bodies can build up too much heat. That can lead to symptoms ranging from light-headedness to permanent damage to your vital organs and even death.

Infants, young children, elderly people, those with chronic illnesses such as heart disease or diabetes, people who work or exercise in the heat and people who take certain medications are most vulnerable to heat illness, but extremely high temperatures can affect anyone.

Heat stroke is the most serious heat-related illness. When body temperature rises excessively, you can become delirious, confused or disoriented, have a seizure or lose consciousness.
