Medical Tourism expert shares her thoughts on Cancer

Dear Friend,

If you have just been diagnosed with cancer, or your cancer has re-occurred, now is the time you will want to really take an active role in your health. Right now you’re experiencing a wide range of emotions with the realization that you have cancer or that your cancer is back. Most of us haven't the first idea where to start when we hear Cancer... the 5 letter word that is harder to take than anything else. Reading the information below and attached, will give you a place to start...


 I began researching options for cancer treatments in 2009 after a good friend was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and told he had 6 months to live. He had limited options for treatment, little support for dietary changes that would improve his condition, and a lot of questions without answers. For a young father with 3 children under the age of 10, this was a very devastating time. We set out on a journey to access information and develop a cancer battle plan so he could fight for his life. While my friend did pass away, he lived for 15 months, not 6.

It was through the research we did, that I became involved in the medical travel for care field, and have been working with cancer patients looking for information so they could arm themselves with information, understand what options are out there to develop a battle plan to fight for your life. Most importantly, I came to understand that hope and support are the biggest things that we can offer along with guidance so you can plan to manage your recent diagnosis. We have so much information to share, much more than can be attached in one email, and much more than one can review without being overwhelming. I have included a few bits of information to give you something to consider and want to share with you that there are some incredible success stories, and yes, even for individuals that have a diagnosis of stages III and IV Cancer.

While no one can offer a cure, there are certainly options to consider that can enhance and improve your life. We are well connected to medical centers within and outside of Canada that combine universally accepted conventional therapies and integrated multi-disciplinary treatment plans. Each center provides a uniquely personalized care in the treatment of cancer, leukemia and other such diseases. These centers believe in treating the whole person, and offer healing, recovery, life and living strategies for people with cancer. We have been successful in developing a road map and then gently guiding our clients to centers that collaborate to improve life for Cancer patients. We hope the attached documents provide information to get you thinking about the questions you may have have about treatment and care options. You also will find the links we have included, most useful. Most of all, we hope that we’ll be able to help you by providing the quality of comprehensive information that you may be looking for.

It’s hard to imagine, but many Cancer Centers will give you a second opinion, including a private, one to one conversation with a Medical Oncologist, for no charge. If this is something of interest to you, just know that we can make this happen. It’s good to be able to talk with Doctors that speak of hope, provide encouragement and compassion while you consider what options you may have.

So here are some great Smart Winter driving tips to help you get to where you're going safely!


Driving in Snow and Ice.

The best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it. Don't go out until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared, and that you know how to handle road conditions. It's helpful to practice winter driving techniques in a snowy, open parking lot, so you're familiar with how your car handles. Consult your owner's manual for tips specific to your vehicle.

Driving safely on icy roads

1. Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.

2. Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.

3. Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.

4. Keep your lights and windshield clean.

5. Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills.

6. Don't use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads.

7. Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and infrequently traveled roads, which will freeze first. Even at temperatures above freezing, if the conditions are wet, you might encounter ice in shady areas or on exposed roadways like bridges.

8. Don't pass snow plows and sanding trucks. The drivers have limited visibility, and you're likely to find the road in front of them worse than the road behind.

9. Don't assume your vehicle can handle all conditions. Even four-wheel and front-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads.

Even the experts sometimes strugle on ice!

If your rear wheels skid...

1. Take your foot off the accelerator.

2. Steer in the direction you want the front wheels to go. If your rear wheels are sliding left, steer left. If they're sliding right, steer right.

3. If your rear wheels start sliding the other way as you recover, ease the steering wheel toward that side. You might have to steer left and right a few times to get your vehicle completely under control.

4. If you have standard brakes, pump them gently.

5. If you have anti-lock brakes (ABS), do not pump the brakes. Apply steady pressure to the brakes. You will feel the brakes pulse — this is normal.

If your front wheels skid...

1. Take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral, but don't try to steer immediately.

2. As the wheels skid sideways, they will slow the vehicle and traction will return. As it does, steer in the direction you want to go. Then put the transmission in "drive" or release the clutch, and accelerate gently.

If you get stuck...

1. Do not spin your wheels. This will only dig you in deeper.

2. Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow out of the way.

3. Use a light touch on the gas, to ease your car out.

4. Use a shovel to clear snow away from the wheels and the underside of the car.

5. Pour sand, kitty litter, gravel or salt in the path of the wheels, to help get traction.

6. Try rocking the vehicle. (Check your owner's manual first — it can damage the transmission on some vehicles.) Shift from forward to reverse, and back again. Each time you're in gear, give a light touch on the gas until the vehicle gets going.

Here they share their first helpful Trusted Regina Automotive tip

I have fluid stains or puddles under my car - what is it and where is it coming from?


There are a number of fluids that can leak from your vehicle, with many of them leading to a possible breakdown and expensive repair if neglected. Some leaks are obvious, where others may play "hide and seek" with you. If you can't find the location of the leak, place fresh newspapers under where you think your leak is overnight and then check them in the morning. Following are some helpful hints as to the type of fluids used in today's vehicles, as well as various colors and other characteristics to help you identify them.

Engine oil is typically dark-brown or black in color. At times, you might see a few drops here and there and this might be all right if you recently have had your oil and oil filter changed or performed this service yourself. This can largely be attributed to the location of the oil filter on the engine and some oil may have dripped upon some of the vehicle chassis or a small amount was spilled onto the engine when dispensing the new oil into the filler area. While a few drops shortly after an oil change might be ok, you want to make sure that "puddles" of oil do not occur.

Engine antifreeze / coolant can be either green, yellow or red depending on the type used by the vehicle manufacturer. Most vehicles have a radiator located just behind the grill. This fluid has a sweet smell to it (like maple syrup). Not enough antifreeze / coolant will cause the engine to overheat. There is usually an "overflow" or "fill" tank where you can add antifreeze / coolant to your cooling system.

If the fluid looks like clear water, than it probably is. Since most vehicles today are equipped with air conditioning, you'll likely notice drips or puddles coming from underneath the engine compartment. This is normal, since this water is condensation from the A/C system. This is the best fluid to see under your vehicle.



Brake fluid is generally clear and oily to the touch. When you depress the brake pedal, brake lines allow the brake fluid to be pushed through to each of the 4 wheels containing a "stopping device", either a brake caliper or a wheel cylinder. So any number of leaks could appear almost anywhere a weakness may exist in the system. While leakage of the brake system is rare, you'll likely feel a "soft or spongy" brake pedal feel when depressing the brakes, which can lead to brake failure if not corrected immediately.

Transmission fluid is typically red, although the color can be a "milky pink" color if it becomes contaminated. Some TF for certain vehicles may be clear or amber in color. If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle, then your transmission is next to the side of your engine underneath the hood. If you have a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, then your transmission is located in the center of your vehicle just under the dash under that "hump" in the center. If the color of your TF appears to be brown then this would indicate that the fluid has overheated and should be changed as soon as possible.

Power steering fluid is generally red, although some vehicle manufacturers may use a fluid that is almost clear or amber. The power steering reservoir is typically mounted with the power steering pump driven by a belt on the engine. Leaks generally occur within the power steering lines.

Windshield washer fluid (pink or blue) would indicate that your windshield washer reservoir is leaking. For the front windshield, this reservoir is under the hood in the engine compartment. For vehicles with rear wipers, it is usually mounted behind a panel in the rear left or right side of SUV's and vans.

Gasoline is a clear fluid with a strong smell and is obviously highly flammable. Gasoline is stored in the gas tank which is usually located at the rear of your vehicle. Leaks can occur if you bottom out your vehicle, causing damage to the gas tank. There are also fuel lines that run underneath the vehicle up to the engine. Leaks can also occur within the fuel line (rare), but are most likely to occur at a connection point. Gasoline leaks should be repaired immediately due to a fire hazard.

Diesel fuel looks like light oil. While not as flammable as gasoline, it can ignite in the right conditions. Leaks should be taken care of as soon as possible.

Gear oil is a light tan or black color and is considered a "heavy" or "thick" oil. Leaks can occur in your manual transmission, differential (rear-end on rear-wheel-drive vehicles) or axle. Since gear oil is used widely among certain components, a gear oil leak may be present at a number of locations underneath a vehicle. Any leaks should be repaired as soon as possible.


Battery acid is a clear fluid that contains sulfuric acid and will smell like rotten eggs. A leak would typically indicate that your battery casing is cracked and the battery should be replaced immediately. Since battery acid is corrosive, any contact with skin should be washed and flushed with water as soon as possible.

Shock and strut fluid is typically dark brown. Shocks and struts can "ooze" their fluid and this will be evident by a stain on the outside of the shock or strut housing. There is no refilling of this fluid so they must be replaced (usually in pairs or all four at the same time).

Trusted Regina Realtors and Regina Real Estate Expert shares a tip on conditional offers

Using “Conditional Offers” to Your Best Advantage

You find a home that you’re interested in buying. But you have concerns. Is it in a good state of repair? Will you be able to secure the right financing? Can you sell your current home in time? Any of these issues can prevent you from making a prompt offer and, as a result, cause you to lose the opportunity. The solution? Make a conditional offer.

A conditional offer means just that. You offer to purchase the home so long as certain conditions, which you specify, are satisfied. Here are the most common examples:

■“Subject to financing”. You will buy the home if you’re able to arrange for a suitable mortgage.

■“Subject to inspection”. You will buy the home if it passes inspection by a qualified home inspector of your choice. If he or she finds that substantial repairs are required, you can either walk away from the deal or renegotiate.

■“Subject to selling my current home”. You will buy the home if you can sell your own home within a set period of time. For example: 45 days. A seller might agree to this if your home is competitively priced.

■“Subject to the repair of ____”. You will buy the home if the seller makes certain repairs, at his or her own expense. This can range from something relatively minor, such as fixing a crack in the foundation, to a major repair like replacing the roof shingles. A conditional offer will protect you. However, there is always the risk that the seller will say “No.” If you’re in a competitive situation, for example, and another buyer’s offer is unconditional, you may lose the deal – even if your offer price is higher! So you really need to use conditional offers strategically, in just the right way, under just the right circumstances.
