A doctor in Glendale, Calif., has developed a "one and done" procedure for patients diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. The breakthrough procedure could save many women from having to go through weeks of difficult radiation treatment and instead get it all in one operation.

Dr. Dennis Holmes of Adventist Health Glendale described the procedure: "Radiation is given entirely in a single dose while the patient is in the operating room. So, when they leave the operating room, they're done with breast cancer surgery. They're done with radiation, and there is no further need for radiotherapy."

Do you feel like you're always on edge? As if there’s a "red alert" going off in your mind more than usual? Or maybe you have a loved one who experiences constant stress and anxiety like this.

Millions of people live with anxiety disorders, depression, and other mental health conditions every day. The Heart and Mind Summit was created to offer accessible resources to those struggling with challenges like these.

Hosted at the North Hills church in Southern California, this year’s theme, “Life on Red Alert,” was an experiential workshop that took attendees into the fears and anxieties that take control of our lives, and showed them proven pathways of thinking, feeling, and relating that can return us to peace and serenity.

Fred Kinsey, longtime minister, teacher, and speaker for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, died on Monday, July 17, after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Pastor Kinsey’s pastoral ministry experience was a solid foundation for a wide-ranging career in church communication and administration. He served for 20 years at the Northern California Conference as communication and stewardship director and assistant to the president. He was chair of the communication department at Pacific Union College, where he taught classes in design, debate, and public relations. He then served as assistant to the president for communication at the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. In 2008, he became the fourth speaker-director of Voice of Prophecy, serving from 2008-2012. Throughout his career, he mentored and inspired young communicators.

He is survived by his wife, Lynette; his daughter and her husband, Stephanie and Mo Leal; his son and his wife, Jeffrey and Sara Kinsey; and four grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister and her husband, Deloris and Arnold Trujillo; and his brother and his wife, Bud and Delores Kinsey. Our hearts and prayers are with his family and extended family today.

The Fred Kinsey Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will benefit worthy students at Pleasant Hill Adventist Academy, has been set up online through the Northern California Conference.
