This week, Shayne is on assignment in Puerto Viagra, Mexico, where the beaches are full of warm white sand, the margaritas are flowing and just about now he’s putting up a table with a sign that reads “free blood pressure readings.” His dedication is inspiring.

Sitting in for Shayne is popular Bay Area health and fitness expert Joanie Greggains. Most of you in the San Francisco Bay Area know Joanie as the popular host of The Joanie Greggains Show on KGO Radio for 25 years, the #1 weekend health and fitness show. She is also known for her long-running TV exercise show, Morning Stretch. And now she is under Nurse Talk house arrest and does a weekly feature called “Fit Happens.”

Casey and Joanie visit with RN and CNA Presidents Council Member, Zenei Cortez about the “CNA Nursing Angels Family Fund” established by the California Nurses Association for the victims of the horrible limousine fire that occurred on the San Mateo Bridge here in Northern California. The news of the death of two RNs and three other caregivers in the tragic limousine fire brought deep sadness to everyone. Zenei will talk about the fund and how people can donate.
