    • This is a “First World” problem and thus needs money and focus to bring about change

    • Since posting my original article https://blog.grigsbyconsultingllc.com/movember-and-fyi-i-died/ it has been great talking with others.  Discussing if they have had their echocardiograms or other health screens if a disease runs in family has been very insightful gives a reason to encourage each other
