Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefAn Interview with Marlo Thomas

Margaret Julia “Marlo” Thomas is an American actress, producer, and social activist known for her starring role on the TV series That Girl. She also serves as National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Marlo is the recipient of four Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, a Grammy Award, and the George Foster Peabody Award.

Gary Barg: Tell me a bit about the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Thanks and Giving campaign.

Marlo Thomas: One of the reasons that St. Jude is so distinctive is that it is a research and treatment center under one roof. When my father was first planning on building a hospital for children with cancer and other deadly diseases, one of the scientists said, “If you really want to help sick kids, Danny, don’t just try to make kids better; try to find out what makes them sick.” That became the mission of the hospital, devoted to the study of disease in children.

We have an international intellectual community and they are the leading doctors and scientists in the world for children with catastrophic diseases. And my father made an important promise to make St. Jude the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for the care they receive.

The New 'Female Problem'
Patricia Grace

While men do represent a growing percentage of today’s caregivers, the role is still largely filled by women. In what could be considered the new “female problem” in the workplace, male management does not have the tools to adequately discuss and remedy this female ailment...read more

Holiday Bookclub: Who Cares?

Carenotes

My mother has dementia and is getting worse. She gets annoyed when I'd like to give her a sitting shower. She thinks I'm bossing her around. The CNA that comes in five days a week asked her twice and Mom said, "No." I'm very nervous because she wouldn't even get dressed yesterday. She wore the same pajamas and diaper she had on the night before. (She had been allowing me to dress her every day.) What should I do? Help!
