Reflecting on the Way of the Cross and the Sacred Wounds of Jesus, I am reminded how touch makes us believers and healers. ‪#‎GoodFriday‬ ‪#‎HolyWeek‬
Every day, I see God’s hands at work, and witness how important and healing touch is in our lives. A loving gaze. A warm embrace. Two or more hands clasped in prayer. "Touch speaks the wordless wor...

Cancer care advances are a direct result of clinical trials research. Cancer patients today benefit from more targeted and effective care, live longer, and enjoy a higher quality of life, thanks to the cancer patients who enroll in clinical trials each year.

When Kristian Hernandez and I talked about doing a feature story on Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley (CCRGV), top of mind was the need to get more individuals volunteering at the Humanitarian Respite Center at the Sacred Heart Church - McAllen, TX. 

The number of refugees fleeing violence in their homeland, primarily Central Americans, has doubled since Thanksgiving. The need for volunteers and donations to support the Center CCRGV set-up and manages continues. And Kristian's feature story, appearing today in all of the AIM newspapers in Texas, will surely help that cause.

To write the story, Kristian spent half a day with us at the Center, and he told me he was the son of migrants. He shared he was 12 years old when his father crossed the US-Mexican border to be with his family at Christmas. I'm guessing it is a Christmas Kristian will never forget.
McALLEN—Two red metal doors opened and a crowd of 18 people, mostly woman carrying young children, made their way into the Sacred Heart Immigrant Center.

Introduction

Next to my two children, my biggest passions are lifelong learning, public broadcasting and navigating the new media frontier... no easy feat in The Neo-Luddite Triangle. 

I relish being part of innovative and entrepreneurial teams. Teams willing to think in new ways and implement new ideas improve their relationships with key audiences and their bottom line. 

I've worked in radio & television, higher education, and was a tenured college professor. I keep changing what I want to be when I grow up. 

My communications and development work currently supports new media and health information literacy, ePatient advocacy, cancer research, and improvements in the quality of life and care for those touched by cancer and mental health issues. 

Another passion is helping people of all ages better understand and enjoy the world's most beautiful players' game - real football (or what most in the states refer to as soccer).  

Bragging rights
I won many debate and public speaking awards in my youth, but don't know what happened to them. A lone soccer trophy and a celebrity low-bowler trophy grace my shelf. Why? Because they remind me of what's important in life. Not winning or losing. Life's about learning new things, doing your best, having fun, staying humble, keeping the faith, and being upbeat and positive in the face of adversity and challenges.
