Childhood Cancer Talk Radio

An Inside Look (Part II) at DIPG, Childhood Brain Cancer with Wendy Fachon and Janet Demeter

Both advocates and moms share the parallel of their personal experiences with their sons who were both diagnosed with DIPG, with Wendy's son Neil Fachon diagnosed at age 19 in 2016, and Janet's son Jack Demeter diagnosed in 2012. A continuation of a deep conversation from last week, the two share their hope and inspiration for continued advocacy as well as some of their hard-fought successes in the field. Despite the growing attention to the pediatric brain cancer research space, nothing has to date changed for the average family with a child diagnosed with DIPG from the experience 60 years ago. The two friends discuss what they have done to survive and thrive in a relative vacuum and an at-times fractured community, how hope is indispensable when fear runs rampant, and how brilliant scientists like Stalislaw Burzynkski (Houston, TX) and Michelle Monje (Palo Alto, CA) and innovative, collaborative organizations like Children's Brain Tumor Network (CBTN) and the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC) give thousands an extended license to believe there will be a cure for DIPG.

Harvesting Happiness

Self-construction: An Inner and Outer Journey with Brian Lowery PhD

From birth, our self is created by other people. We inherently carry intergenerational baggage from our ancestors, then the process of constructing our ‘self’ comes from feedback about who we are from the time, culture, and society we grow up in. Do we truly have any control over who we are and who we will become? To discover the social construction behind what we consider our sense of self, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with social psychologist, and the Walter Kenneth Kilpatrick Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford University, Dr. Brian Lowery. Brian explains the premise of his book Selfless: The Social Creation of “You”, and describes the multidimensional facets of self. Dr. Brian Lowery — The Journey of Self-construction: ● What Brian means when he says the self is a social construction. [2:25] ● Making sense of ourselves and our stories. [6:21] ● In his book, Selfless, Brian imparts that humans can not be a self by themselves and that our worlds are smaller when we don’t deeply engage with others. [9:31] ● The chapter in his book — Hugs and Straight Jackets — focuses on how defining ourselves can be comforting but also limiting. [15:32] ● Lisa and Brian dissect the aspects of freedom and the only thing we truly have control over. [20:49] ● Brian shares his hopes for his book, Selfless.
