  • New device helps chemo patients prevent hair loss

    Hardin Memorial Health recently announced a new device to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments prevent hair loss.  Funding from the HMH Foundation (HMHF) allowed HMH to be the first in Kentucky to offer the Paxman Scalp Cooling System.

    The system uses what is called a cold cap to reduce the scalp temperature immediately before, during and after a chemotherapy treatment. The cooling reduces the blood flow to hair follicles, which helps to prevent or minimize the hair loss.

  • The greatest story ever told

    According to Emerson the story of the Prodigal Son was the greatest short story in or outside the Bible.  Many would agree with him.  The parable reveals much — the love of God in picture form, the heart of God, how far one can go from God, the hope for one in the far country and the toll of a life lived apart from God.
