Be Courageous! Change is an Action Word

There's something wonderfully comforting about knowing what comes next. The feel of your favorite chair as you relax and unwind. The smell of morning coffee. That familiar smile of a friend.

In the real world, if you don't know something, it could hurt you. That's why I am so passionate about knowing all I can about my health and what I can do to change when things need changing. That's why I want to help others do the same. New research, new tests. Newer therapies.
