in the United States, 6,000 to 7,000 new cases of Hodgkin Lymphoma are diagnosed each year.
At age 13, Sean Swarner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease and went through months of intensive treatment and beats it only to be diagnosed two years later with Askin's sarcoma. With a prognosis of fourteen days to live, and being in a medically-induced coma for a year, Sean is the only known person to have both types of Cancer and yet beats the odds.
REMEMBERING A LEADER - Larry Kramer
We lost a great leader this week with the death of Larry Kramer. Larry was an accomplished man earning a degree from Yale, an academy award nomination as a screenwriter, two-time Obie winner, and Pulitzer prize nominee, and activist. Born in a time when being out was unheard of and the role models we have today did not exist, he had his own struggles with coming to terms with and accepting himself as a gay man as many did and still do. Going as far as attempting suicide while in college Larry would come to terms with who he was and go on to lead a movement that would change our world.
David Surber is an experienced Supply Chain Operations Leader with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) focused in Global Business Management from American Military University. Serving for more than a decade in the U.S. Army David is a passionate believer that we can all find Fulfillment in the work we do. That as a leader it is a sole responsibility to ensure that the needs, wants, desires and dreams of our people can be merged with the goals and objectives of the business. It doesn't have to be one or the other. I recently had the privilege and honor to ask David about his Military service, experience and thoughts on leadership.
