From Last Bad Day to Rippling Kindness: The Accident that Could have Ended Everything
Join in as Host John Malanca meets with guest Michael O’Brien who shares an incredible story about never giving up and what he calls his “Last Bad Day”. In the summer of 2001, John’s guest, Michael O’Brien, experienced a horrific bicycle crash. While out on his daily bike ride, an SUV traveling at 40 mph crossed into his lane and struck him head-on, forever altering his life as he knew it. Medical professionals were shocked that he survived and told him that he’d likely never ride again. In 2022, Michael completed a 41-day, 3,600-mile bike ride across the United States, proving all of them wrong. Today, Michael is a meditation teacher, author, executive coach, and creator of the Pause Breathe Reflect app, which invites users to meditate and take time out to stop a bad moment from becoming a very bad day.

The Secret Behind Ryan's Law: California Pharmacists Fight for End of Life Cannabis Access
Join Host John Malanca as he visits with PharmD, Dr. Leah Johnson as they discuss Ryan's Law and how CA Pharmacists are pushing for Legal Cannabis Access for End of Life Patients Nationwide. Please follow Dr. Johnson here as she and her group lead in this fight for patients rights. https://cannabiswellnessgroup.com/professionals/dr-leah-johnson/ On September 28, 2021, Governor Newsom approved Senate Bill 311, better known as “Ryan’s Law.” The legislation requires hospitals and certain health facilities to allow terminally ill patients to use medical cannabis, subject to certain restrictions. Governor Newsom had previously vetoed a prior iteration of the bill (SB 305) in 2019, owing to fears that participating hospitals or hospices might jeopardize Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) reimbursements if they permitted medical cannabis onsite, as marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Sponsoring Senator Ben Hueso (D-San Diego) spoke to the repeated setbacks facing the legislation: “It is inconceivable to me that, in a state where medical cannabis was legalized more than 25 years ago, those in deepest suffering receiving treatment in our state’s healthcare facilities cannot access this proven, effective, and prescribed treatment.”Visit us at: https://www.unitedpatientsgroup.com Follow our Podcast: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1129859 Follow us on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/upatientsgroup Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/UnitedPatientsGroup/

Open to Hope: The Power of Grief Support with Dr. Gloria and Dr. Heidi Horsley
Join John Malanca as he speaks openly about his grief journey after the passing of his beautiful wife Corinne. He shares his thoughts and experiences with mother and daughter grief counselors, Drs. Gloria and Heidi Horsley, even as they embark on their own grief journey after Gloria’s son died suddenly in an accident also leaving her daughter Heidi without her beloved brother and the recent passing of Gloria’s husband, Heidi’s father. Listen in to this poignant yet hope filled podcast. In the early 80s Dr. Gloria Horsley lost her son in a tragic accident. Realizing there was little support for siblings and watching her three daughters grieve his loss spurred her to action and to her life’s work. Ultimately, the Horsleys started the “Open to Hope Foundation”. Now, shortly after experiencing the loss of her husband, both Gloria and Heidi speak openly with John Malanca about grief and the journey of Hope and a purposeful life. These courageous ladies discuss the death of a partner, beloved or not, a child, sibling, parent or any loved one. They offer important information, such as there being hope after loss, that real men do cry, there is no research of any kind showing an increase in divorce after the death of a child or loved one, and that a baby after the loss of a child is referred to as a “Rainbow Baby”. Some other topics of interest in this compelling podcast is that there is no right or wrong way to grieve, and that losing a parent even as an adult can be much harder than one might think. Listen in, or watch John, Gloria and Heidi discuss this difficult yet most important topic. Whether you have experienced personal loss or are just interested in the process, grief remains one of the most profound of human experiences. You will be happy you tuned in!
