So Proud of My Friend....

To save lives, she had to save her own first.

The link above will take you to an article and short video featuring my good friend and colleague, Brenda Pate who lives in Tampa, Florida and works as a physician assistant at Moffitt Cancer Center. The subject is a deeply troublesome topic, domestic violence. I'm so proud of what she's doing to shine more light on this subject. This is a societal problem with deep roots. Exposing the problem is crucial. Click on the video screen at the upper right hand side of the link to see/hear what Brenda has to say.

On ABC this Friday night (April 23), a prime time special airs on the topic of Domestic Violence. We should be watching, learning and reacting.

Thank you Brenda for your honesty and your hard work.


  1. Good for Brenda to share her story. It will help so many women. OUr stories do help others find their way.
