    Reining in Cervical Cancer —Bringing Cervical Cancer Screenings to Maison de Naissance

    Welcome to Episode 5 – Bringing Cervical Cancer Screenings to Maison de Naissance!  

    Today, we are talking about Maison de Naissance, a birthing home in Torbeck, Haiti.  In the midst of our hope, sometimes despair, and resourcefulness needed to get the capracare project off the ground, by fate, faith, or chance, we learned of another opportunity to bring cervical cancer screenings to another organization.  Jean and I are talking with Jim Grant, the Executive Director of the Global Birthing Home Foundation, the funding arm of Maison de Naissance. Jim, welcome!

    Reining in Cervical Cancer —The Highs and Lows of Adversity

    Welcome to Episode 3—The Highs and Lows of Adversity!  So, we’ve talked about our story began, screening methods, and the importance of screening women in Haiti for cervical cancer.  Today, laugh and sigh with Jean and Jo Ann as they talk about the challenges they dealt with as capracare and Rotary worked to get this project off the ground. Joining them are two fellow Rotarians from the Prospect/Goshen Club, Dr. Muriel Harris and Sheila Stoke.  Sheila, the CPA of the group, was and is the holder of the purse strings; Muriel, a Professor of Public Health with the University of Louisville, convinced the Club that if they found the right organization on the ground in Haiti, they could do this!

Delzeeee ,

Very inspiring!

An Act of Courage is so inspiring and uplifting and it’s just getting started! When you hear the passion of people like JPL and Becky and what they are doing to help people with such great need it renews your faith in humanity and makes you want to get up off your butt and do something too. Hetal is an excellent host and keeps the conversation lively and on point. You find yourself feeling like you are in the room with them having this conversation. Looking forward to hearing more episodes!
