NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 11, 2018) - Nine months after Gil Schaenzle lost her only child, 21 year old daughter Anna Rose to neuroendocrine (NET) cancer, the same complicated disease that recently ended the life of Aretha Franklin (Queen of Soul), Gil carried on with her and her daughter's mission and ran in 50 national parks across the United States. The demanding pursuit in honor of Anna was designed to raise awareness to an often times misdiagnosed form of cancer. Clutching Anna's teddy bear throughout every run, Gil crossed the finish line last month for the final time at Denver's Rocky Mountain National Park - the same national park where she and husband Fred used to take Anna as a small child. Note: Nine months became a significant measure in Gil's life; she carried Anna for nine months, Anna's illness was nine months from diagnosis to her passing, and Gil carried out the National Park Run in nine months time.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - I support every American's right to protest whatever they want. However, if you endorse someone who wears #PIGSOCKS that's where you lose me. If @nike wants their "swoosh" to be associated with calling our police "Pigs" then so be it. I have a right to not purchase.
Our police saved lives at the Las Vegas shooting where we played, and the heroism they displayed is second to none. We appreciate the job they are willing to do all day, everyday to protect all of us. They are the farthest thing from pigs."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 30, 2018) -- Seven years after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed, the Neuroendocrine cancer community still gets "no respect." As fans pay their respects to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin this week, the need for Neuroendocrine (NET) cancer awareness is heightened as her physician, Dr. Philip A. Philip, confirms her correct diagnosis--pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, commonly referred to as pNETs. Many media outlets only reported "pancreatic cancer" and gave statistics that do not apply for pNETs. "Pancreatic cancer of the Neuroendocrine type," as reported by Franklin's publicist, is a completely different disease than the typical and more common pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma). Franklin's physician, Dr. Philip shared, "The only thing they have in common is they both arise from the pancreas." When the media does not get it right in the case of a beloved well known public icon, it can have a serious impact on the diagnosed and undiagnosed patient
