Learning More About Childhood Cancer

Oct 10, 2015

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating for any patient, but what if you’re a child or teenager getting that news. Imagine the fear and stress that would arise as you face the uncertainty of your prognosis, the physical side effects of your treatment, and the separation from friends and favorite activities.

On KET’s Connections, Renee Shaw explored these challenges with a young cancer patient and a pediatric oncologist.

Her mother noticed the change first. Faith Calhoun says something about her daughter Destiny’s smile didn’t look quite right.

Bass Fishing And Catching

The orange tint in the tops of mature trees portend what is coming our way. Cool nights with crisp, gorgeous days signal not only some of the best days of the year in Kentucky, but also the beginning of the fall reservoir fishing season for largemouth bass.

September is typically the driest month of the year and the water in many lakes becomes air-clear. The clear water combined with the lingering summer thermal stratification of the lake makes predator fish lethargic and skittish. This leads to tough fishing.
