Dear Friends and Family,

Due to the grave illness of host Casey’s father we were unable to tape our show this week. Please hang with us while we give you one more rerun. We thank and appreciate each and every one of our listeners, friends sponsors and others for making Nurse Talk possible.

Nurse Talk joined the team Walk or Grow Wings last Saturday in Santa Rosa, California to walk for a cure for MS. Inspired by the people in our lives with Multiple Sclerosis, the team raised over $9000 under the enthusiastic and able leadership of Karen Krueger. Thank you to everyone who donated, walked or volunteered. If you are so moved, you can still donate.

Sweetheart of the Nurse Talk staff, Austyn Leigh with team captain Karen Krueger

We have lots of great topics and discussions going on on our blog and Facebook pages. Stroke patient, Joyce Hoffman has been telling it like it is from the patient’s perspective. Do you know how your patients see you or what a lasting difference your care can make? And, we’ve got current events from National Nurses United. Nurses, Robin Hood and the band of merry women and men, and scores of friends are strapping on their boots and preparing to head to Chicago for a protest Friday, May 18 during the Staff Nurse Assembly.

WE WILL be back next week with current issues, our fantastic new co-host Shayne Mason, and some wild and crazy entertainment. In the meantime enjoy our resident comedian Lynn Ruth Miller as she wows the judges (all but one) on Britain’s Got Talent.
