    S9 Ep 7 - Empowering Youth and Building Dreams

    S9 Ep 7 - Empowering Youth and Building Dreams

    In this compelling episode of The 411 Live, Beverly had the pleasure of speaking with Dionne Grayson, a remarkable author, business coach, mentor, and visionary leader. Dionne has been honored locally and featured in several national publications.  
    Dionne's journey of overcoming fear exemplifies the transformative power of studying, taking action, and practicing bravery. "There's no fear in love, and perfect love casts out fear." She lives by this statement and it underscores the significance of self-reflection, faith, and determination in conquering fears and pursuing personal growth.
    One of the highlights of our conversation was Dionne's children's book series, which she scribed as a divine download. Despite not fully understanding the series initially, she trusted the process and later discovered its educational value through feedback from educators. The series uses repetition and a predictable storyline to help children learn to read, featuring black children as main characters to address the lack of representation in children's literature.
    [00:03:02] Overcoming fear and self-doubt.
    [00:06:43] Overcoming fear and avoidance.

    S9 Ep 6 - “Previvors” Three Sisters Radical Cancer Prevention with the RAD51D Gene Mutation

    In this compelling episode of The 411 Live, we delve into the critical topic of genetic testing and preventative surgeries for cancer. I had the privilege of speaking with three remarkable sisters, Dr. Patricia Cifax, Jacinta Tatum, and Sheila Adams Gardner, who shared their personal journeys after discovering they carried the RAD51D gene mutation, which significantly increases their risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
    The sisters discussed their initial reactions to their genetic test results, the emotional and medical decisions they faced, and the proactive steps they took to alleviate their cancer risks. Their stories highlighted the importance of genetic testing, especially for individuals with a family history of cancer, and the potential life-saving impact of early detection and preventative measures.
