Ep.89 – Michelle Apple, Founder of Apple Breast Cancer Warrior Foundation

3.8 million, is the number of women in the United States diagnosed with breast cancer. And $100,000 is an average cost for the treatment of breast cancer (this does not include hotel stays or reconstruction). Michelle Apple founder of Apple Breast Cancer Warrior Foundation came by Youngstown Studio to talk with Lisa Resnick about her fight with breast cancer and the creation of her foundation to help others that experience her same struggles. Founded in 2019, she has already raised over $60,000 to help other women who are fighting her same battle. A true warrior, Michelle brings education, aid and awareness to a condition that we all have the potential to be afflicted with.

This Sunday, October 10 be sure to swing by Boardman Township Park for the Annual Apple Breast Cancer Warrior Foundation Cornhole Tournament which is being sponsored by last week’s guest, Ohio Pet Foods Inc and BrightPet Nutrition Group. Then on October 23, West 34 will be all pink to raise money for this foundation that helps so many in our Valley. #supportlocal #breastcancerawareness

Ep.65- Don Thomas, Platz Realty Group

Who says competitors can’t make great podcast guests? Don Thomas of Platz Realty Group swung by the studio to chat over some Penguin City. But the focus of this conversation wasn’t real estate – it’s his Combine Brothers Italian Restaurant in Hermitage. With fresh bready daily, fresh pasta dinners on Sundays and an upcoming opening Boardman, Don spills the T on how Combine’s got started, where the restaurant industry is headed, and how they plan to take advantage of it.
