My ovary???

“The fibroid shrunk one centimeter,” my gynecologist said. I stopped at Clinica de la Raza, because I had an appointment that day for a follow up on an ultrasound that was performed prior to my surgery. My gynecologist told me I had a cyst in my left ovary, we just don’t know where or what size.

THC and the city

Sometime last year THC (Tenderloin Housing Clinic) started housing homeless people in privately owned hotels by subletting rooms in them through the navigation center.

Obviously most of these clients had some situation that landed on the street. Anything from lack of finances to mental illness and/or substance abuse.

Bring Back Esker-D

About a year and a half ago I lost the best healthcare provider I ever had in my life [The creator notwithstanding!]

She not only provided me with everything necessary that she could for my well being , she actually listened to me and gave me feed back if I asked for it.

She always formed her advise like a suggestion and asked me if  would be willing to try something without making demands.

I always felt loved and cared for under her care.

Boy have things changed!

America’s Other Death Penalty Problem and Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOPP) and The Absolute Prohibition of Torture and Cruel, Inhuman, and Degrading Treatment or Punishment- Notes from the Inside

America’s Other Death Penalty Problem

What does it say about a country that can condemn 50,000 men and women to the slow, grinding death in prison of life without the possibility of parole? In 49 of these United States, the sentence of death by imprisonment is a well-used option. In several states- California, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania- there are thousands of individuals suffering under this sentence, in the worst prisons, with the greatest restrictions, and the fewest privileges.

From Flagstaff to Flint -Some of our Communities Cant Drink Their Own Water

Some of our communities can’t even drink their own water because it’s so poisonous” said Klee Benally, a Dine revolutionary who works all over America but lives in Flagstaff, Arizona. Klee has done work to protect the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff from becoming a ski resort. But, the government went along with it anyways.

Concussion Review

I'm going to be doing a review on the movie Concussion, a movie about football and the dangers of it.

You could hate or love this guy: his name was Doctor Omalu.

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.
