McDonald’s played a vital role in the inception of the first Ronald McDonald House, which opened in Philadelphia in October, 1974. The first Ronald McDonald House of Detroit opened in 1979, as the seventh House in the country.

In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter Salsido from Turning Point Macomb. The month of October is "Breast Cancer Awareness Month".
We all know someone with cancer, but how can you support them? Cyndy and I discuss ways you can show your support on a more personal level.

Cyndy and I also discuss when it's time to let go. Maybe it's a relationship, a job, or just something in your life that you feel it's time to let go of.

Turning Point is ALWAYS here to help!!!!!!
