Thankful Thoughts

Image
Crazy to believe that I ventured out on my own eight years ago after being at ABC News 4 for more than five years.

Sometimes when life gives you lemons, you add them to your cocktails and live it up! 
With Thanksgiving here, it's a time to take a breath and be grateful. 2017 hasn't been quite a good year personally as we lost Darren's dad, mom broke her bad leg and dad had a seizure but when we celebrate this week, we will remember why we are so lucky to be alive.  Nelwater moved into a larger location after getting beaten up by Hurricane Matthew.

Thanks to all my clients - past and…

This is why Teacups and Trucks LLC is announcing that they will be going back to their “roots” as a mobile birthday party service and will be closing their Mount Pleasant brick and mortar shop they opened in 2015 off Coleman Boulevard.

If you didn't have a chance to follow Ryan Nelson's skin cancer story on Instagram regarding her Squamous Cell Carcinoma on her left foot, please check it out on the Germain Dermatology Instagram page.  Hi all, Ryan Here!  Recently, I had a rare mole on my left foot that looked abnormal. I made an appointment with Germain Dermatology's PA Louisa Floyd to have it looked at. Sadly, it came back as Squamous Cell Carcinoma. From the Skin Cancer FoundationSquamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells arising in the squamous cells, which compose most of the skin’s upper layers (the epidermis).

More than 1 million cases of squamous cell carcinoma are diagnosed each year in the U.S., and (depending on different estimates) as many as 8,800 people die from …
