A presentation at the Church of Perpetual Life in Hollywood, Florida will discuss breakthroughs in organ transplantation medicine.

Experts in the field believe that replacement of failed cells, tissues, or organs could cause over 30% of all deaths in the United States to be substantially postponed—increasing the chance of living to age 90 by more than 10 times.

Unfortunately, the supply of transplantable organs is much less than the demand. There are long waiting lists of potential organ transplant recipients, most of whom die before an organ becomes available. In the United States, it estimated that only about 2% of the potentially needed organ transplants are carried-out. Even when organs are transplanted, they may be poorly matched to the recipient, requiring immune suppression measures that decrease the quality and quantity of life of the recipient.

Come to the meeting to learn about breakthroughs in transplantation of heart, kidney, liver, lung, and other organs that could save many lives of people who die prematurely because of organ disease or failure.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 7:15 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

The service will be held at the Church of Perpetual Life

Dentistry from Our Hearts: Spreading Free Smiles Throughout South Florida

February 4, 2015

AVENTURA, FL — The Dental Care Group and Dental Care Group Kids are bringing free smiles back to the community! On Sunday, February 8, 2015, they’ll host the 4th annual Dentistry from Our Hearts. Their dental teams will be donating their time to provide free services including exams, cleanings, fillings, bondings, extractions, x-rays and emergency care at both their Aventura and Pembroke Pines offices during this year’s event.

With the help of their fellow dentists, hygienists, clinical and administrative teams, volunteers and sponsors, Dr. Rick Mars, Dr. Joel Glicksman and Dr. Josh Coussa have treated over 1000 patients and donated nearly half a million dollars in dental care through the Dentistry from Our Hearts program since 2012.

Tooth decay, which is almost entirely preventable, is the most common chronic illness among school-age children. Left untreated, it can result in infection, unbearable pain, loss of teeth and acute systemic infection. Yet nearly one in four American children have untreated tooth decay. For low-income children, the rate doubles.

“For many, a visit to the dentist is unaffordable and inaccessible. More than 85 million Americans have no form of dental insurance. We are looking to address this concern and give back to the members of our community who need it the most,” said Dr. Rick Mars.

The event will take place from 9 am to 4 pm on February 8th. Patients will be seen on a first come first served basis. If you would like more information on this event, or to schedule an interview with Dr. Rick Mars, please contact Leslie de Lepine at (305)935-2797 ext. 249 or via email at [email protected]

The story of a South Beach legend

Walk to the Fifth Street lifeguard stand on South Beach at 5:15 pm any day. You will see a bearded, long-haired shirtless man wearing black shorts, one black glove, and a headband that’s black, too. People call him the “Raven,” and he’s been standing in front of that lifeguard stand at that time for the last forty years, getting ready for his eight-mile jog up and down the beach. That’s right—Raven has run eight miles on the sands of South Beach every day since 1975, through concussions, hurricanes, food poisoning, animal attacks, hail and high water. And he’s still going.

This event will feature:

A reading of poetry written by the Raven himself
Screening of the feature documentary
Invitation to join the Raven on his famous 8 mile run on the beach following the film at 4:15 PM
