by: Dr. Bill Blanchet
Heart Disease can be a thing of the past, but only if we know what to look for and what to do if we find it. What we have been told is not working. Hear Dr. Blanchet, internal medicine physician and national keynote speaker, explain the facts about early detection of heart disease and how to stop it before it stops you. In this 2 CD set, you will learn why: good cholesterol numbers guarantee nothing, certain supplements are a waste of time and money, radiologists don't tell women everything they see on mammograms, why everyone should have a heart scan of some kind, and not all heart disease needs to be treated by a cardiologist.

The Women of The Rose: The story of mammograms, miracles and a Texas non-profit that beat all the odds


by: Dorothy Gibbons
Texas women have a well-earned reputation for big hair, big hearts and Texas-sized tenacity. The Women of The Rose is the story of such women -- the kind who didn't let the "little" things like no money, no experience with non-profits, and no breaks in the glass ceiling keep them from launching what has become a 30-year investment in life-saving women's health. In this collection of stories from co-founder Dorothy Gibbons you will discover what it took to face naysayers, build a legacy, and even take on what once was a death sentence for 1000s of women.
