Tora Fisher is a New York based singer-songwriter and performance artist. When she was young, her mother encouraged her to develop her artistic side while her father exposed her to a world outside of the arts: he created the Fisher House Foundation, a network of comfort homes where military and their families can stay at no cost while their loved ones receive care and treatment. Tora developed a keen interest in these two starkly different worlds: that of the arts, and the art of war.
When Tora was 13, she experienced the unfathomable when she was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed her father, stepmother, and four others. Her resilience and determination to recover from this trauma was nurtured by her love of music and performance and her ability to pursue her dreams of being a singer-songwriter, pianist, dancer and recording artist. She has also fulfilled her dream of supporting her father's legacy by donating proceeds from her CDs to the Fisher House Foundation.
As Tora so aptly put it, "its not about what happened to me; it's about what's happening."Published on May 31, 2014

Abrams has extensive experience working with cancer and HIV/AIDS patients and is a pioneer in the field of medical cannabis research.
The U.S. government classifies cannabis—along with heroin and LSD—as a Schedule I drug, the most tightly restricted category of drugs in the United States. According to the federal government, Schedule I drugs are unsafe and have "no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States."
However, as medical cannabis proponents have pointed out since the Controlled Substances Act was passed by Congress in 1970, cannabis has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and there has never been a reported case of a marijuana overdose. Moreover, in recent years clinical researchers around the world have demonstrated the medicinal value of cannabis. Uploaded on Oct 14, 2010
