Hope Scarves

The mission of Hope Scarves is to share scarves, stories and hope with women facing cancer. We discuss an upcoming fundraiser with Art and Lara Plewka.

November is Men's Health Awareness Month and we speak with Spectrum Health’s Dr. Harland Holman about the campaign, Beards for the Boys.
