Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefAn Interview with Jane Kaczmarek

Jane Kaczmarek is best known for her role on the television series Malcolm in the Middle. A three-time Golden Globe and seven-time Emmy Award nominee, Jane also had a painful struggle with osteoarthritis, a condition that affects one in every five Americans,  For several years, Jane lived with excruciating hip pain, dreading the most simple of tasks, like going up stairs or having to walk down a long hallway. It wasn’t until she was forced to pass on a big movie offer that she realized it was time to deal with the problem once and for all. Jane opted to undergo hip replacement surgery. Weeks after her surgery, and following a rehabilitation program, Jane returned to a pain-free routine and, without hesitation, was back on a TV set, taking on new and exciting roles, including her most recent appearance on the new FX series Wilfred and her new role on the NBC comedy series Whitney.

Editor In Chief Gary Barg sat down with Jane to talk about how facing her need for surgery got her back on her feet.

Gary Barg:  I so appreciate you spending time talking with us about osteoarthritis, this is such a big issue...continued

LTC Insurance Quote


I just discovered your Web site and thought how nice it is. I have a 30-year-old daughter I have been taking care of for 12 years. She has an annuity and I was her conservator. I was trying to receive more money from her account and it was taken away from me. I have no income of my own. Is there a way I can get help and bill my daughter’s trust?  My hands are tied. I have a large second mortgage. I wish I could find some help. I don't want to give her up and there are no in home services available in my area. I am currently applying for Medi-Cal and SSI.
