We Salute Dr. Alan Greene, Winner of the June 2013 WHO'S HOT! Award




 
Accepting WHO'S HOT! Award at the
Pregnancy Awareness Event, May 5 2013.

Look for Dr. Alan Greene's feature in our July 2013 issue of

WHO'S HOT? & WHO'S NOT! going live on June 28th.  Here is an excerpt of his upcoming feature.


WHWN: What current projects can we expect to see from you?

Dr. Greene:  At DrGreene.com I've been answering parents' questions since 1995 - picking from among all the questions that come in those that are most common or that I found most compelling. But I'm turning that around to answer every day the question that gets the most 'likes' by readers - so that if someone feels urgent about their question, or if lots of people care about a question, they have the power to get it answered. I'm very excited about this.


WHWN: What legacy do you want to leave behind?
 
Dr. Greene: I'd love to be remembered as someone who helped change the way our children are fed. (And changed the way medicine is practiced.)

WHWN: How does winning the WHO'S HOT! award make you feel?  


Dr. Greene: I grinned ear to ear when I heard! feel honored and humbled - and excited about the opportunity to keep spreading the word. And the award itself is gorgeous! Thank you so much.

    Looking strong and healthy, stating, "I feel wonderful!" concluding that, "It's Brad's night." Adding Pitt, 49, "It's incredible to be here in London. We love it here."
 
       Well I must say that we love that she is doing and looking very well! Her decision, like many women who are faced with this choice, is a brave one and to do it under the eye of the public makes it even more courageous. 
 
Congratulations to them both!

The "Storm of Storms" Took Unknown Lives, Leaving 237 Injuried

 
 
[UPDATE] 
 
       Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin gave a news conference Tuesday, stating officials are trying to find out if other victims might have been taken to local funeral homes and have not yet been counted in the death toll.  "We're going through that debris, and we're going to keep looking until everybody's found," FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said at the news conference.  Unsure of people who may still be missing, first responders have vowed to check each damaged piece of property three times to ensure no one is overlooked.
 
       "This was the storm of storms," Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett said.
 
       Plaza Towers Elementary School took a direct hit when the tornado struck its destructive 20-mile path through Newcastle, Moore and parts of southern Oklahoma City for 40 minutes, leaving in its path at least seven children dead and some missing.  Classes were still in session at Plaza Towers when the twister, estimated to be packing winds of 190 mph or greater, crushed nearly every corner of the property.
 
       Teachers’ cars were thrown into the building, and the playground no longer exists. “All you could hear were screams,” local resident Stuart Earnest Jr. said of the scene at the school after the storm. “The people screaming for help. And the people trying to help were also screaming.  I can only hope those little kids killed didn't suffer,” said Earnest, one of many who rushed to the school to help survivors.

       Monday's tornado was estimated to be more than a mile wide at times. Its path was nearly identical to the one taken by a record-breaking May 1999 tornado that devastated the area.
 ________________ 
 
 
 
      Before storms and tornadoes struck Oklahoma these last couple of days, my mother and family living here in California had gone home to bury our cousin. Unfortunately, now all their lives are in danger.  I couldn't make the journey as I'm nearly nine months pregnant, but of course I can't help but feel a sense of dread as now my entire family, except my sister, is in Oklahoma under what my uncle's neighbor called, "hell." 
 
        Living in Oklahoma, storms and tornadoes are a part of life. One continues grocery shopping, errands or what ever it is one was doing while listening to the weather channel to know when it's time to go inside, evacuate or leave.  Our reality, and as crazy as it sounds, is shown in that my mother and uncle were at his house still pulling weeds during the down pours, thundering and updates on the tornadoes when it finally touched down. Above is a NBC news time lapse of a tornado that only lasted about 1 minute and 45 seconds.
 
        My mom said, "What could we do? We were surrounded by them, so all we could do is stay here at the house and relax." So once the last weed was pulled, down pour and all, they casually strolled into the house with my mother heading to take a 15 to 20 minute shower. 
 
        Unbeknownst to them, I'm frantically calling my uncle's house and cell phone, in between calling my mother's cell phone. Periodically getting a busy signal or the recording, "This call cannot be completed as dialed" when I know the number is dialed correctly.  And as if the news reports of at least 51 people believed to be dead aren't bad enough, I'm texting and calling my other family that lives in OKC to help do a head count of who is OK (and accounted for) and who hadn't been heard from since the storms struck and all phones went down.  
 
       So as they casually strolled indoors from gardening in the middle of this storm, under the Oklahoman haze of "tornadoes are a part of life," let me further drive home how bad this storm set had become. When my mother had finally called me back and told me that upon exiting her shower some nearly 20 minutes later, "the darn thing was still on the ground spinning!"
 
       All I could say is, "Wow!

       Now I'll be the first to say, that this is one of the main reasons why I left Oklahoma.  Tornadoes produce very beautiful, purple, pink and grey colored skies, but having the threat of our lives being turned upside down once a year, or every other year, because we live in "tornado alley" is not something I wanted to continue doing.

        So far most of my family is accounted for but please let us all take a moment and pray for those who were not as fortunate; those believed dead, hurt, displaced and all of whom are still dealing with the unknowns of when and where the next tornado will strike land.

People Magazine Reports, Angelina Jolie Will Have Ovaries Removed Too

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy



UPDATE: May 15, 2013
           
     Angelina Jolie may have more surgery to remove her ovaries, as reported by People Magazine. Based on her test results, she has a 50% chance of getting ovarian cancer. She is brave beyond words, which is strengthened by the great family support that surrounds her (consisting of her children, Brad Pitt, her father Jon Voight and brother, Jamie).  Pitt states that the decision leading up to the double mastectomy "was an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months."

Jolie could have been private about the matter and none of us would have been the wiser. Yet her selfless actions to bring attention to the fact women need testing and the many options available, as each case and woman is different, is what motivated her to speak.  She continues to inspire us.  She's gotten support from Sheryl Crow, Giuliana Rancic, Elizabeth Banks, Hoda Kotb and more.



We send our prayers and hope for a speedy recovery.

WHWN Applauds Angelina Jolie's Decision for Double Mastectomy




On May 14, 2013, Associated Press reports that Angelina Jolie wrote in a New York Time column, titled "My Medical Choice." "My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer," wrote Jolie. If you recall, her mother died of breast cancer at 56 years of age; a disease that has a high mortality rate.

Jolie went public to encourage other women to be proactive about the disease.  "I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer," she continued.

Her partner, Brad Pitt, had the wonderful words of encouragement:
"Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic," Pitt, 49, tells The London Evening Standard. "I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want for is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family."
Who's Hot? & Who's Not! applauds Jolie in her brave proactive decision and to continue helping and encouraging others.
