Seems like 2022 just began, but here we are planning for the upcoming holidays and adjusting to life with our kids back in school. This issue has a great variety of stories that touch on some personal breast cancer journeys and an inside look at the new neuroscience institute at Bon Secours, and we also spoke to a dentist about how he cares for his teeth. We even feature a story about a kidney transplant recipient. Follow along with us as we walk with her through the trials and tribulations of a live organ transplant. On the cover, we featured three “fearless” women who had a diagnosis of breast cancer and either fought it or are still fighting it. Lynne Pryor, Cathy McMillan and Caitlyn Harper spent some time with our writer, Lisa Breslin, to talk about their unique cancer journeys. The picture that adorns our cover was taken by our wonderful photographer, Carin Scates. We would like to thank her, as well as The Crepe Factory and the town of Inman for the setting. We hope you all are adjusting well with going back to school. Check out our story about school stressors and how to cope. And we hope you like our stories about setting boundaries and how “going gray” is the new trend. I want to take the time to thank our team – our editor, graphic designer and our wonderful writers. These magazines would not be what they are without their dedication. We also want to thank our sales team for their work on distribution and making sure the magazines are accessible to you – our loyal readers. And we appreciate the time that our expert sources gave in order to make sure every story was written in accurate detail. Thank you. We hope you enjoy this issue of HealthLinks.
