When two of your closest friends tell you they are ready to leave this world because of chronic illness, what do you do? You sell a successful orthodontic practice and go on an “all out” mission to find answers for them that no one has been able to offer. In a period of 3 years attending over 24 medical conferences, Dr. Carolyn Flanary came to the realization that she should open a facility to provide access and relief to the people who cry themselves to sleep each night because no one can provide answers for their chronic illness. When Joy heard what Dr. Carolyn had in mind, she said “I’m in. Although it’s daunting, it’s noble and long overdue.” Dr. Carolyn then takes up the mantra “Calling all Mama Bears!” It is a much needed wake up call to our vigilant matriarchs. No one messes with our Baby Bears, right?!
