Re-cap: End of Life Decisions in Banderas Bay
January 18, 2023 at 9:00 am

Learn about everything from what to do if someone dies in their home here, to the involvement of consulates, and everything in between. It is a lot of information and not really a topic people like to discuss, but it is something that is important.

The Truth About Stem Cells
January 25, 2023 at 9:00 am

I will be doing a Re-cap of the End of Life Decisions in Banderas Bay. You will learn all about stem cells, how they are used and for what they are used. This is sort of a mystery to many – do stem cells really work? Stem cells for orthopedics? Liver? Younger looking skin? These and much more will be covered. Renue Medical Center attending physician and patient advisor will be doing the presentation.

THIS AND THAT

We have complete Men’s and Women’s Check-ups, a good, economical package that includes a follow up consult with a physician. Email for details.

Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, Consults with all kinds of specialists. We can set these up for you.

Note: SOME specialists are now booked a couple of months out so if you are in need of a dermatology appointment or an endocrinologist appointment, please request NOW!

Ongoing Needs: Baby blankets, onsies, bottles, hygiene items, school supplies, craft supplies, beans, rice, non-perishables, gently used clothing, medical supplies – it is an endless list! I try to find those that tend to fall through the cracks. Every single thing is appreciated.

For any questions, comments, appointments please email:

Let’s try to be kind to one another – or kinder. It is fairly simple. Enough said.
