These are going much better than my wildest dreams!


We actually have a backlog of people who want to be interviewed. This is so cool.


I hope that non-Cushies will hear these as well as the current message board members and see themselves or a friend/family member and get the testing that they need.


This Week, Thursday May 1 at 8:30PM eastern (Note later time!)


Monica (Monicaroni) May 1 at 8:30 PM eastern (Note later time!) to talk about the challenges she's faced maintaining her music career while in testing and treatment. The Call-In number is (646) 200-0162.


Monica was diagnosed with Cyclical Cushing's. She had pituitary surgery in November 2006. An 8mm encapsulated pituitary tumor was removed.


Since there was no post-op crash, she also had a BLA in December 2006. Both surgeries were in Seattle. She is now free of Cushing's and am on the road to recovery!


Monica is a professional violinist.
