The Pains of Sandy Hook

The unthinkable has happened just ten days before Christmas – where a shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut – claimed 26 victims – mostly small children – 20 children and six adults.  This segment focuses on “Meaningful Action” – a discussion on changes that need to happen in light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT.

Are We Closer to a Cure?

Years into the battle against cancer, we are still searching for a cure. You’ve probably run for it, walked for it, biked for it and sat next to someone’s bedside and prayed for it.  To help us gauge just where we’re at in the battle for the ultimate cure, we speak with the Director of Research for the Canadian Cancer Society, Dr. Siân Bevan, and University of Guelph Researcher, Dr. Brenda Coomber.

I’ve spent some time looking at this over the last while – the type of hope we should be expecting after all these years – and on where the money’s going – is there enough being spent on research – and on what projects are we funding – who decides?

It’s life, music talk, all grown up – right now, on The Nancy Duffy Show.
