Good News Tuesday for March 9, 2021: New CDC Guidelines, Vaccine Collaboration, Fighting Cancer, and Making a Difference


Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Vaccine Collaboration, New Guidelines, and Hugs

The CDC has issued new guidelines endorsing people who have been fully vaccinated to socialize with more freedom. This means if you and your grandparent have been fully vaccinated, you can hug away! The CDC still does not endorse travel. Please read details from Good Morning America.
In related news, Merck pharmaceuticals is helping Johnson and Johnson expand production of their new single -dose vaccine.
Here’s more from US President Joe Biden:(after a brief commercial)

Individualized Cancer Treatment

Oncologist Robert Nagourneytest’s system of personalized medicine determines which drug or drug combination defeats each patient’s individual tumors or fluid in the lab before giving the medication to the patient. His work has shown success according to this article from the Good News Network.

Recognition of Paralyzed Man Collecting Plastic from Boat Makes a Difference in His Life

N. S. Rajappa lost the use of his legs due to polio at the age of five. Now, the elderly gentleman drags his small boat into the Vembanad Lake in India to pluck plastic bottles from the water. If he fills his boat, he makes about 17 cents per day. It’s enough for a meal, and he likes helping the environment. Since Nandu Ks shared his photo of N. S. Rajappan collecting plastic in his boat, donations have started to help make Rajappa’s life a little easier with a motorized boat, chair, and a plan for a new dwelling. See the photo and read the story from the Good News Network. In addition, I found a video that also helped with the donations.

  1. I always look forward to your Tuesday posts. Thank you for holding positive energy. Here’s a story I found to be uplifting.

  2. All wonderful inspiring stories, JoAnna! I especially like the one about new treatments for cancer tailored to the individual. Cancer is one of the worst diseases and affects so many families, so this is encouraging news. ❤ Have a great day!

    • I’m so glad you liked the stories, especially the one about fighting cancer. If we as a species could put more time and money into health, wellness, and medicine instead of violent and destructive pursuits, we’d have cancer beat.

  3. Again, great minds DO think alike, for N.S. Rajappan was top billing in my ‘good people’ post for this morning! My jaw dropped when I saw him here on your site, too!

  4. The NS Rajappan story is wonderful

  5. Thank you for sharing!!.. with all the negative press in today’s world, it is refreshing to hear news about good things!!.. thanks for being a rainbow in someone’s cloud… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May the dreams you hold dearest
    Be those which come true
    May the kindness you spread
    Keep returning to you
    (Irish Saying)

    • Good news is more plentiful than the negative press would have us believe. Thanks for supporting the good news and the sweet rainbow compliment! 🙂
