Just as the early settlers made their way through difficult times we too must find a way. So take action dream big and when you do achieve success pay it forward by lending a hand to others whenever possible. Speaking of big this month s cover story is about the AT & T Jeb Bush Florida Classic which has grown into a three-day destination event where there is something for everyone. Former State of Florida Governor Jeb Bush is the host for this occasion and he will be on hand to assist in the Classic s success. Guests of this event can enjoy fishing golfing a casual Beach Bash party or a Black-tie affair all while giving back and helping to save lives.

If you are looking for a change in how things are remember the words of Ghandi Be the Change You Want to See in the World I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving As Always Enjoy the Lifestyle TM Jim Norton Publisher & President Lifestyle Magazines 6 LIFESTYLE MAGAZINES I NOVEMBER 2011 READ ONLINE AT WWW.LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM LAS VEGAS on bout a year ago Cheryl Insalaco and Kaye Jacobs both residents at the Las Olas River House attended a reception at Latin2Latin Marketing hosted by Mindy Figueroa to benefit The Children s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC). Dr. Ana Calderon the Assistant Administrator of CDTC spoke so passionately about CDTC Cheryl and Kaye were both very moved. In fact they took Dr. Calderon up on her invitation to pay a personal visit to the CDTC facility in Ft. Lauderdale. Upon completion of their tour they were both overwhelmed with the services commitment and the compassion CDTC offers. CDTC provides a unique system of care for infants children and youths with chronic illnesses disabilities and developmental delays. Kaye and Cheryl were particularly interested in the way mothers and their children are offered incentives to come back regularly for their child s treatments. Another facet of the CDTC organization which impressed them was the group of about sixty business leaders known as Transformers who voluntarily champion CDTC in the community and in many cases create fundraising events through their networking. With Cheryl Insalaco as Chair and Kaye Jacobs as Co-Chair and with the help of Yvette Yoslov Chair of the Las Olas Social Committee they have rallied eighteen Las Olas River House residents to contribute the necessary working capital to create this magical fundraiser. They are expecting over four hundred guests to attend. The event takes place at the iconic condominium The Las Olas River House on Saturday November 5th from 6 00 p.m. to midnight.

In its 16 th year the AT&T Jeb Bush Florida Classic Sponsored by the Wasie Foundation and Presented by Ford and Premier Beverage stands out as one of the most prestigious and anticipated annual events in South Florida. The event will be held November 9th through the 11 th at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Resort in Fort Lauderdale and the Golf Tournament will take place at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club in Plantation. All proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis or commonly known as CF is a life-threatening genetic disease affecting thousands of children and young adults. CF children struggle to simply breathe break down and absorb food as they produce mucus that clogs the lungs and obstructs the pancreas. CF sufferers are never quite sure what tomorrow will bring or whether there will be a tomorrow at all. New drugs inhaler therapies care centers and research funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation have dramatically extended and improved the quality of life of many and provided hope for more tomorrows but additional resources are needed to find a cure. Since its inception the Classic has netted nearly five million dollars for the CF Foundation. These dollars have had a tremendous impact on the Foundation s ability to fund cutting-edge scientific research and top-quality care Stephen Siller essential for keeping CF patients healthy while working towards finding a cure. LIFESTYLE MAGAZINES I NOVEMBER 2011 11 16th Annual AT&T W T The event s 2011 financial goal of six hundred thousand dollars received a significant boost this year from two of the event s major sponsors The Wasie Foundation and South Florida Ford each of whom challenged the ninety plus committee members to increase its revenue and support with new dollars. The Wasie Foundation put forth an exciting new one hundred thousand dollar matching gift challenge for all new dollars raised through the event. President and CEO Gregg Sjoquist and Jen Klaassens Vice President of Programs Florida who have been long-time supporters of the CF Foundation and this event were key to making this match a reality. We are ver y excited to be able to offer this opportunity to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and ver y proud of the committee and staff for their dedicated efforts to meet this goal said Sjoquist. Led by CF Foundation s Executive Director Christina Landshut the entire committee tasked themselves to secure one hundred thousand dollars in new sponsors before the event and succeeded. We are so grateful for this incredible partnership said Landshut To be able to work with such a wonderful organization is a pleasure. The challenge was met more than two months before its deadline thanks to generosity of some key donors like Ford Rich and Maria Higgins Frank Tsamoutales InCapital LLC AutoNation Publix Gold Eagle and Ultimate Software. This is a well-respected organization that does incredible work and we are thrilled for their success with this one hundred thousand dollar challenge. said Jen Klaassens. Allan Young Chairman of South Florida made a huge donation which has added even more excitement to this year s event. In addition to being one of the Presenting Sponsors Ford has given the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation a loaded 2012 Titanium 12 LIFESTYLE MAGAZINES I NOVEMBER 2011 Edition Ford Focus for a premier raffle at the event. Odds are one in one thousand. The CF Foundation has issued only one thousand tickets which can be purchased for one hundred dollars. Event General Chairman Joe Hess leveraged an incredible new partnership with Florida s own Bank Atlantic to help make tickets widely available across the community. Bank Atlantic s forty eight branches throughout Broward and Dade counties each have a limited number of tickets at their location tickets can also be purchased online at On behalf of South Florida Ford and all of the dealers we were proud to be able to provide one of our most popular cars as a raffle prize said Young The additional funds that are raised through the raffle will go toward finding a cure of such a horrible disease and that makes it all the more worth it. Jeb Bush the event s namesake and honorar y chairman for the past sixteen years was ver y excited about these new strategic partnerships. The Wasie Foundation and South Florida Ford have been great friends to the CF Foundation and to this event we are extremely grateful for their ongoing support Bush said. I am ver y proud to be part of this event and know that with the generosity of our loyal sponsors it promises to be our best yet. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation lives by the motto Working Together We Can Add Tomorrows Every Day. The Classic embodies this idea in the substantial commitment of time and work that comes from so many. Work begins in January and continues over the next ten months. This year s committee is comprised of over ninety volunteers including some of South Florida s most prominent citizens such as Marti and Wayne Huizenga Kimberly and Marshall Criser Susan and Bob Drinon Debbie and Steve Day Gary Correll Bob Brudzinski Chris Sullivan and many more such as the additional fifty volunteers who come out the event days to help at each venue. The most high-profiled volunteer for the event is namesake former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Bush first became involved in 1985 after meeting with committee member Lawson Dutton of Dutton Press whose daughter suffered from cystic fibrosis. Lawson and I asked for a meeting with Jeb Bush to talk about doing a golf tournament. We asked him to lend his name to the event and after Lawson shared his stor y about his little girl and the other children suffering from CF Mr. Bush graciously agreed said Christina Landshut CFF Executive Director. I am ver y proud to continue as the honorar y chairman of the AT&T JEB BUSH Florida Classic to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation said Gov. Jeb Bush. The Foundation has a tremendous reputation in the medical community as an organization that is efficient innovative and accountable. It is a leader among its peers and making a difference in the lives of ever yone with cystic fibrosis. When asked about the impact Bush has had on Florida s CF community over the last sixteen years Landshut shared I am always impressed by how consistently gracious and knowledgeable Jeb is. As new CF research comes out he educates himself about it and speaks from the heart about the Foundation s work. I especially love when he interacts with our CF patients. You can tell he truly cares and is genuinely interested in how they are feeling. We are lucky to have such an incredible spokesperson for our message and our mission.

Many patients will have lung nodules and or spots on the lung. Most are not cancer but in certain circumstances they should be tested to see what they are. At Cleveland Clinic Florida a highly specialized team of physicians collaborates to provide patients with coordinated diagnosis and treatment plans. The Interventional Pulmonology Program is one of the top interventional programs in the state of Florida through which our multidisciplinary team offers a full spectrum of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic services. One minimally invasive procedure for diagnosing lung cancer is called endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) guided biopsy which allows physicians to more accurately identify lung cancers without surgery. During the ultrasound guided biopsy a flexible scope is inserted into the windpipe and pushed up along the walls until we access the appropriate airway explains pulmonologist Eduardo Oliveira MD who specializes in the diagnosis treatment and management of lung cancer. With the help of ultrasound imaging we can locate the suspicious lymph node or spot on the lung and use a very small needle to biopsy the tissue. Tumors can also be diagnosed with CT scan guided needle biopsy. If necessary Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) also called thoracoscopy can be used to biopsy nodules in the lung. Special telescopes video cameras and instruments are used to look and operate inside the chest through small incisions eliminating the need to cut muscle and spread ribs. This results in less postoperative pain and a faster recovery. ung cancer results when abnormal cell growth invades and destroys normal lung tissue. An accumulation of abnormal cells is called a tumor. As a tumor grows it can impair lung function resulting in breathing difficulty and decreased oxygen in the blood. The cancer can also spread to other organs and eventually cause death. Lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer in the United States and the leading cause of cancer deaths. The American Cancer Society estimates 17 150 of the more than 220 000 new cases this year will be diagnosed in Florida. Most lung cancer cases occur in smokers (cigarette pipe or cigar) however some occur in non-smokers as well. L Treatments and Interventions Surgery radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used to treat lung cancer. Surgery involves removal of cancerous tissue whereas radiation therapy involves destruction of cancer cells. In chemotherapy a patient takes oral or intravenous drugs that target rapidly dividing or multiplying cancer cells throughout the body. Treating lung cancer can involve one or all of these interventions. If the cancer can be completely removed surgery provides the best chance for cure. The VATS techniques described above also can be used to remove the tumor through very small incisions. For patients with tumors in major airways a lung-sparing procedure called sleeve lobectomy may be used. In the past the surgical alternative would have been to remove the entire lung says Edward Savage MD cardiothoracic surgeon. This procedure allows us to remove the tumor by removing the cancerous part of the lung while preserving the noncancerous portion minimizing the loss of breathing capacity.

Woliner M.D. A.B.F.M. Board-Certified Family Physician problems. She asked me to write that article to explain why lab tests don t always diagnose hypothyroidism correctly. Can I see your old blood work I looked at the pages and instantly saw what was going on. It looks like your other doctors were looking at one test called the TSH. Even though the lab still reports the old normal range of 0.5 5.5 you re level of 4.87 isn t normal. Since November 2002 the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has encouraged doctors to consider treatment for patients who test outside the boundaries of a narrower margin based on a target TSH level of 0.3 to 3.04. Does that mean that I really do have a thyroid problem Most likely however I think we should look a little deeper. I want to check for Thyroid Antibodies. When they are present we call this Hashimoto s Thyroiditis. Unfortunately Hashimoto s Disease makes blood tests for thyroid less accurate to where the TSH doesn t correlate as well with symptoms. I first noticed this phenomenon in my residency where I had a patient with severe hormone resistance who required 400 mcg of Synthroid per day to feel normal. At lesser doses she was severely fatigued. We had to check out her heart and bones periodically with EKGs and Bone Density Scans but at that dose she felt fine without side effects or complications despite having a low TSH. Robin asked another question So if you can t always go by the TSH test how do you know how much medication to use Just like psychiatrists who prescribe antidepressants empirically I start low and go slow. I monitor my patients for improvement and any potential side effects. When my patients symptoms stabilize they don t need as close monitoring and I m able to space out their visits. One last question If you do decide I have a thyroid problem which medication would you choose for me Most doctors prescribe medications that contain only T4 such as Synthroid (levothyroxine). There are other medications that contain T3 such as Cytomel and Armour Thyroid and I have found that some patients do better when I individualize therapy to each patient s needs. For example when a patient s T3 level is low they often do better with the more natural thyroid medications. Before we start I m going to check the free levels of your hormones. Robin s antibody test did come back positive and she was started on thyroid hormone. Though her weight didn t melt off instantaneously her fatigue lifted and she was able to exercise.

After reading the discussion board on she was convinced she had a thyroid problem. Not only could she not lose weight she was so intolerant to cold she had to bring a sweater with her everywhere she went. What drove her to make the appointment with me though was her severe fatigue. I m constantly tired. My bowels don t move my hair is falling out and I ve gained 4 dress sizes I ve been to a few doctors but they haven t helped me. They said my lab tests are normal. Robin continued I m a stay-at-home mom I shouldn t be this wiped out I searched the internet and found a web site that described how low thyroid can cause all my symptoms and then saw the article you wrote on thyroid lab tests. http articles woliner.htm It was as if you were talking just about me Yes Mary Shomon has put together a great resource for people suffering from thyroid Kenneth N.

For some people wearing a new outfit will fit the bill but others may want to go the extra mile. Fortunately there are a number of cosmetic enhancements that can really help patients shine with confidence and vigor. The recent emergence of Botox and facial fillers has redefined the idea of a makeover. Rather than just applying an edgy eyeliner or getting a new haircut patients can erase wrinkles and look far more refreshed that they could have imagined before. In just minutes a Botox or filler treatment can enhance one s appearance with essentially no downtime. Many patients are not aware that in addition to erasing wrinkles there are many other uses for dermal fillers such as filling in the under eye shadows and augmenting the cheeks. And if treated by an experienced surgeon patients can expect a natural result unlike the artificial plastic look that is the result of an inexperienced injector. Get For the Big Carpet Ready Day Even with no downtime one should still plan a Botox or filler treatment carefully if done prior to a big event. The results of a Botox treatment are usually evident within a couple of days but can take up to a week for the ultimate result. And the results of many fillers will continue to refine and improve over a period of two weeks so to show off that great result at least two weeks prior to the event would be ideal. However since much of the result after a filler treatment is immediate this rule does not have to be strictly followed. offer a laser peel procedure that is an excellent way to make the skin look young vibrant and healthy. The laser peel is best done a few weeks before an event. I recommend that patients schedule a consultation as far in advance of the big day as possible in order to plan their treatment. I have treated countless patients prior to their weddings and reunions with great success. The key is to have a thorough faceto-face consultation to create a customized treatment plan. Whether patients opt for a filler treatment laser resurfacing For patients who desire an even procedure or even surgery more dramatic improvement getting red carpet ready is a laser resurfacing procedure now more attainable than ever. is an excellent choice. My preference is a Lumenis UltraPulse fractionated laser treatment. This newest generation of fractionated lasers gives patients a glowing refreshed look. At the same time skin is tightened and wrinkles are softened. The downtime for these treatments is less than a week and the results typically last for years. I will typically recommend a laser procedure at least two months prior to an event since that final glowing look improves with time.

With high stakes intense competition and demanding clientele presenting a professional image is an absolute necessity. I ve always treated the aspect of client representation as a very serious and all-encompassing duty especially when that client entrusts you with a considerable real estate asset says Trayor Lesnock the president and founder of Miami-based Platinum Luxury Auctions LLC. Platinum is a specialized auction and brokerage house that focuses exclusively on the auction sale of multi-million dollar properties and assets on behalf of affluent sellers who are not in financial distress. Hamilton Douglass Clothiers knows how important a professional presentation is to me as part of that client representation and they do an excellent job accommodating my requests for quality and customization. More than a few people in his industry have taken note often remembering Lesnock for his dedication to wearing a suit and tie whether he is speaking in front of a room full of real estate professionals or walking the waterside dock of a prospective client s property in 95-degree heat and high humidity. He s also known to favor old-fashioned style accents such as pocket squares and tie bars. For some reason folks in real estate get a real kick out of that. Lesnock owes his regard for a professional appearance largely to his father and his maternal grandfather as both men always went to work in a suit or a jacket and tie. My father used to take me with him to the Hong Kong tailor when I was very young. I remember being intrigued by that whole experience and thinking it was something sophisticated that grown-ups must get to do. But business for Lesnock is about much more than proper attire. Platinum has produced serious results while representing some of south Florida s elite property owners. Examples include two recent sales in 2011 one for a Miami oceanfront condominium at 3.68 million (setting a record sales price per-square-foot in its building and equaling 123% of the property s current appraisal) and another for a Boca Raton penthouse at 3.4 million (after the property had been listed for sale with a prominent brokerage for nearly 3 years). Very wealthy very savvy sellers understand the power of our luxury auction program to effectively sell their properties. They realize the significant difference between the typical bank foreclosure auction and Platinum s method of presenting their properties in a distinguished fashion to a worldwide audience of qualified buyers. His clients likely also realize that Lesnock knows what he is doing in the world of luxury real estate. He has been involved in the sale of over 225 million in luxury property at auction - including singular home sales of up to 17 million - and has consulted or advised on nearly 1 billion in total luxury property for auction sale most of this property located in the state of Florida. Despite these big numbers Platinum s business model is dedicated to selectivity when seeking and ultimately securing its clients. The firm chooses only those sellers who have desirable unique properties valued over 1 million. As luxury property sales continue to be a lengthy frustrating process throughout Florida it s likely that more sellers will engage Platinum to provide a definitive sales solution. We ve always been selective but I certainly see business volume increasing in the near future.
