Marc Silver, author, My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks

Marc Silver, author, My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks

  Tuesday, February 11th, 2014. A native of Baltimore and a graduate of the University of Maryland, I have been a reporter for over 30 years. I began my journalism career at the Baltimore Jewish Times and became editor of the National Jewish Monthly in 1981. At the Jewish Monthly, I won awards for excellence in North American Jewish journalism for an account of families facing Tay-Sachs disease (both my wife, Marsha, and I carry the Tay-Sachs gene) and for coverage of the first American gathering of Holocaust survivors. I joined the News You Can Use staff at U.S. News & World Report in 1989, writing about health, education, travel, books, and environmental issues. I am currently the magazine’s assistant managing editor for features. I edited U.S. News’s Great Vacation Drives book for five years, and won a Northern Lights award for excellence in travel journalism for “Wuthering Hikes,” describing a family trip to Canada’s Cape Breton. When Marsha was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, I wished I had a book to guide me through the difficult months ahead, because I had no clue what to do. In the spring of 2002, after Marsha finished her treatments, I began working on the proposal for BREAST CANCER HUSBAND. Even though many publishers told me that “men don’t buy self-help books,” I was sure this was one book that guys would buy–and if they didn’t, their wives would buy it for them.

Ellen Jaffe-Jones and Loving Yourself, Animals, and the Environment

Ellen Jaffe-Jones and Loving Yourself, Animals, and the Environment

Monday, February 10th, 2014. Ellen Jaffe Jones spent 18 years in television news as an investigative reporter and anchor and eaten a vegan diet for most of the past 32 years. She has won the highest awards in broadcasting, including two Emmys and 1st Place for the National Press Club’s Consumer Reporting Award. After leaving television, she earned high returns for her clients as a financial consultant at Smith Barney, where she was dedicated to socially responsible investing. She is a certified personal trainer and running coach. After a New York Times reporter wrote how her marathon time improved greatly after vegan coaching from Ellen, Ellen now coaches clients all over the globe in vegan and athletic pursuits via Skype and Facetime. As the only healthy person in her immediate family, Ellen’s passion is helping others avoid the pain and suffering she’s witnessed since early childhood. Her mother, aunt, and both sisters had breast cancer. After nearly dying from a colon blockage at age twenty-eight, Ellen was told by her doctors that she needed to do things differently to avoid her family’s fate. Ellen is currently 3rd in State (FL) in the 200, 400 and 1500 meters, 4th in State in the 100 meters. Finishing in the top 4 in her age group qualifies her to compete in the National Senior Games in Cleveland in July ’13. Her 100 meter times are :06 slower than NCAA girls’ personal records listed in the 2012 University of Southern California Track & Field Media Guide. Ellen often places in 5K running races or longer (52 since 2006) and ran her first marathon at age fifty-eight, in 2010. She was the 5th oldest female to finish. The publisher of Running Journal says it is unusual for anyone with Ellen’s sprint times to be able to complete a marathon. Recently Ellen placed 1st in her age group in a 5K race in Bradenton, FL, then 6th in age group the next day in a half marathon…just to show you get plenty of calories, energy, calcium, protein and anything else you need to do all this.
