welcome back to the morning blend. well, when a child has to be hospitalized there's so much more that goes into taking care of them that goes medical care. it's making sure the entire family is supported. >> joining us now is maggie butterfield. she's the director of patient amenities and services at children's hospital of wisconsin. >> so grad to be here. thank you so much. >> nice to have you here. i've been to children's with my kids a couple times, and it's wonderful we have a world-class hospital specifically for our littlist patients here close to
out and the support of the families that happens every day is an amazing place. it's just an amazing place. >> talking about supporting families. when a child is sick it really isn't just about that child. it's about the entire family from the mom and dad all the way to siblings and extended family, and some of the services you are able to offer are dependent on the community. talk a little bit about it. >> they absolutely are. the department i lead has the opportunity to support families in clinical support, but the support families need when they're away from home, when we're trying to keep the family connected. i cannot imagine how difficult it is to have a child in the hospital and balance your work life, your home life. all of those things. so our community supports our fami services department in so many ways s tha we can bring a little bit of normalcy into a very abnormal situation. >> it's great that you acknowledge that, and it is an unusual situation, and some of
of meet kids needs and kind of make it as pleasant an experience as possible is through some really cool things like pet therapy, which i'm sure. adults love it too. i'm sure kids absolutely love that. even have art therapy. you have valet services when people come and use the hospital. >> we have our animal assisted therapy program puts the smile on the face of the child, particularly if they have an animal at home able to be with, but it is an encouragement for the child. they move a little bit more when there' an animal around them. we have special events that support our children and familiesithin the organition, and we do have special programs and partnership were parking, and different partnerships that allow us so many wonderful things. the programs allow the kids and the family to tell us what's th.
prom. first surday of every june,. and, again, think about this. prom is one of those rights of passage that so many of us have, however sometimes because of illnesses or whatever the issue mit beebody might n be able to participate in their own prom, so we have put together with tremendous donations of time and energy and dollars from the community a children's hospital wisconsin prom, complete with a disco ball, a dance and fun and allows again some sense of normalcy in an abnormal situation. we offer a family lounge area for the parent who is sometimes have not been comfortable being too far away from their kids. we have a family reception at the same time. so the kids can be the kids at prom and families can still be supported and this is all through my program and tremendous amount of support from our volunteers withi our

welcome back. most people just want to be home for the holiday, but a lot of military veterans can't, so that's where our next two guests come in. >> every year for the past 29 years they've been hosting a huge christmas party for veterans who can't be home with family and friends. doc dentice is the coordinator
also wayne cisewski who helped put on this show. doc needs a lot of help to pull this off. >> we are getting it. >> good. and i love seeing you every year, and this is crunch time because the party is in 12 days. it's on december 10th is what you need is not so much volunteers to be there for the party. >> no volunteers. >> what you need is donations to make the party happen. >> when you say party social security actually not -- it's actually not. it's a party for the vets, but it's a christmas holiday show because it's such a huge undertaking. there's two shows going on at the same time. all the wheel chair vets on the ninth floor and the auditorium where we pack them in by the hundreds. it's a show. >> how long have you been doing this again? >> 29 years. >> my goodness. >> gets better every year i'm guessing. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> it's challenging.
the hospital? this is the va hospital. >> this is the va hospital. you're looking at the ninth floor, spinal cord, 70-80 wheel chairs up there for the show. and we have the big auditorium. >> when you say show is it musical? >> irish dancers, dante's bop, they're there every year. the trinity kids love, love, love, to dance for their veterans. >> that's awesome. >> you must be right because the event keeps growing year after year. what brings them back? >> people are still understanding, yeah, we're still in war, and we've got all our wounded warriors warriors warris coming back. a lot of them are being treated. and when i'm looking at the crowd its come full circle. now after all these years i'm seeing all the iraq and freedom veterans. whoa, you know. >> wayne, you already served your country in vietnam.
don't you think you've done enough? >> no, it's never enough. you can never forget your brothers and sisters. it's not just gentlemen, it's women too that have served our country, and when they don't have a place to go over the holidays we're bringing them some cheer. holiday cheer. and if it wasn't for the people that watch your program and reach out to us to help us make that much tougher. we thank everybody. >> you never can brothers and sisters and we talk about people wanting to be home with their friends and family. having served the country, in general, you are a family. this is a family. and it must be amazing to see the connections that are built between veterans from wars past and ongoing wars. >> yes, it is. every year we meet new people and the people that we've known over the years, and they become a family. so you look forward to an end.
the va, they look forward to this. that brings a smile to their face. it's amazing. >> why do you do it every year, doc? why not hand it onto somebody else? you've been doing it for plenty of years now. >> hopefully i'm going to be up for a bumping more. >> god willing, and so it's just a really -- it's an excitement for me. i do many veterans events. i'm in all veteran stuff year round, but this is my favorite, favorite, favorite and it's adrenaline. the people i pick up the stuff from, dropping it off, they're smiling. i'm smiling. it comes from the heart. how can you beat that, you know? they don't expect that. we love our veterans. what do you need? >> so what do you need? >> we need -- i have updated my list. we still need the -- all that homemade stuff. homemade cookie, cakes, pies, treats, and we still need sweat
vets on the ground. and you go online, it's listed there. the flier's there. you can call me. we'll make the pickups and come right to your house. have about five or six vets running all over. >> and we have a few examples here. our executive producer, kim, her mom made the camo scarf. this is just a small example of the things that they need on the list, but, again, we want to make sure you have the information. if you go to this website you can find out exactly what they need. it's christmas that's for the list. they will pick things up. if you've got the homemade goods or anything you can pick up that's on the list, doc and his dies will come and pick it up. just call him at 414-218-3030. let's make his phone ring. you can e-mail him. and one thing that i was talking to holly about, something cool that our staff does, is sometimes instead of giving each other gifts we'll collect
each other and pool that money and then donate it to a cause and maybe just have a brown bag lunch or something in our office. we bought a few thing this is year with our money for you guys, so we have some fleeces that are insulated. >> thank you very much. >> we have about 15 scarf that is kim's mom made, and there's some beanie hats and examples are there on the table. we hope you guys will take those things. >> those are wonderful because i'm putting together 30 lady vets bags, bags and all really pretty, and that's for all the women vets when we get out there. that's a chore in itself. [ laughter ] >> and holly being here, i can almost say have a molly-holly christmas. [ laughter ] >> i love it. i like it >> have a molly-holly christmas too. >> we're looking forward to it. and thanks to all morning blend viewers. help us out, and we really appreciate it.
too until you have your party, doc. love you. thank you so much, wayne. appreciate it. still ahead, the incredible story about how a young woman lost her sight but kept her motivation to become a world-class athlete going. up next, did a woman from the midwest change the world of bakeware forever? we're going to tell you about her invention and how it's
they say necessity is the mother of invention. well, last month molly and tiffany had the opportunity to chat with one mom who found a way to make life in the kitchen a little easier and more practical. >> many agree you shouldn't deny yourself your favorite foods, but just in moderation. >> inventor. perfect slice bakeware. it allows precise portions and endsless options. >> good to have you here. >> good to be here. telling us about it. how does it work? >> well, this is a portion-controlled baking system, and i invented this for several reasons. one, i had just moved from texas to michigan with my 13-year-old daughter, and i don't recommend doing that. and i was throwing parties all
coming, so sometimes i had to cut nine brownies and the next day 12, and no one wanted to be without one and no one wanted the small one, so i was so frustrated. so one day i just got my pan out and drew inch marks all around it, and i realized i couldn't cut a straight line. you can't draw one, you can't cut one either. wow. with up those inch marks and cut nine servings or 12 servings or 18 servings, whatever i needed, and i was also a weight watcher at the time, and i realized when my recipe said there's 12 servings in that pan i wasn't stuck with a casserole dish and a spoon. i could actually cut the size i needed for my diet. >> it's true. you think about how many times a recipe like you said says this
servings. you rarely control that on your own. >> that is so true, and this gives you that control. >> the other thing i will say, cutting brownies. you're showing a quiche there. sheet cakes or pancakes. they're hard to cut sometimes, so i feel like this not only does a great job of portion controls and getting equal slices, but takes kind of the hassle out of cutting it. like brownies in particular. they get sticky and hard to cut. >> that between looking like an amateur and looking like a professional is making sure that every piece is uniform, and people used to think when i threw my parties that i had hired a caterer. >> really? >> i never told them any different. [ laughter ] >> nor should you. >> just by cutting two by threes in the cookies or triangle shapes from three by threes and all of a sudden people think, wow, she's spent a lot of money
sometimes the best inventions are almost the simplest in theory. what does the industry think about it? everybody loves it, and they probably thought, why didn't i think of? >> i have heard that over and over. weight watchers wrote a whole blog about this calling it portion control perfection. >> really? >> yes, been on the doctor's tv show. it's great for dieters and diabetics as well. and i can't tell you how many people have compared ice maker. they say how mice -- how ice makers revolutionized a refrigerator. if this is possible to buy verses one without portion control why not buy it with portion control. >> why wouldn't you buy it -- >> that's what i wanted to talk about because as tiff said options. what sizes and shapes do your pans come in? >> that's an excellent question.
are round and square. >> uh-huh. >> we have a pie pan, which is a deep dish, and if you're planning on making a pumpkin kin pie or me meringue pie this is it. then we have our cookie sheet, which is on the end. let me tell you this is a 12x14 pan and it is absolutely perfect for cookies. >> you cut your cookies in squares? >> i do. i make cut the number i need. >> i love that. >> i'm done in 15 minutes instead of 40. >> you don't have to adjust it. you can make it and sell the pan. >> fill the pan. >> i know people right now are, like, okay, tell me where i can get it. i have to buy one or three. so where can people find it? >> i'm so glad you mentioned gifts because our best seller is actually this pan right here.
slicer tool. this one comes with a lid, and that's why it's our best seller. it's so strong. will not fall out. >> and pull up the slicer again too so people can see you do that too. >> it just pops in. so you'll never get to your party without it. >> that's so cool. what is in there? >> this is apple cake, and for instance this has 220 calories per slice if you got it right. up and down. then you can choose to cheat if you want. [ laughter ] >> you can have two slices. >> the inch marks, again, it makes it absolutely easy. >> all right, you can only find perfect slice online go to perfectslicebakeware.com. order it up, have it for the holidays as well. >> by the way it comes with a
>> whoa, that's awesome. i love it. it was fun. that apple cake smells good too. really fun to meet you and congratulations on your invention. i like that. so awesome. up next, we're going to meet a blind triathlete and how she pushed forward through an eye disease to become part of the u.s. national team john, we're giving you a raise. that's fantastic! but i'm gonna pass. who says no to more? are you ok? time warner cable internet gives you more

this and decided i wanted to do something about it. i decided to get back in the pool because it was one of the few things i could do safely on my own. i lost a little bit of weight in the pool and hopped on a spin bike. my friend invited me to a spin class and started running on a treadmill while holding on the sides. hey, you're swimming, biking and running, why don't you think about doing a triathlon? sheig be my guide. she was my eyes for the waist. we were tethered during the race, and we road a tandem bite. that was three years ago. that was three years old, and i had so much fun. i lost the 70 pounds and i'm on the u.s. national team. >> amy, that's incredible. good for you. that is really impressive. do you see anything? can you see anything like light even? >> i have 2% vision out of my
it's like looking through a keyhole. i have 98% of my vision is black, and then my guide dog who's laying by my side is in charge of that 98%. i surrounded myself with a really great team of medical professionals who have worked hard to keep that remaining 2% of vision. >> good for you, and your attitude also is awesome. let's talk about ibsd and how that's affected your life. >> yeah, so about years ago i was experiencing abdominal pain and diarrhea and tried ignoring it for a while to where it became so disruptive in my life they started talking to one of my friends about it in the locker room. i scolded myself because i was so good about advocating for myself with my eye disease that i let this slide for a long time and tried to manage it on my own
medications medications and diet changes, but nothing seemed to be working for me. i went and saw a special itself, and it was by far the best decision i'd made on the road to treatment, and he did a series of diagnostic tests and discovered i had ibsd. at first i was upset about the diagnosis, but i was releed to hear there were 16 million patients in the u.s. it was really frustrating and happy to put a namit so he suggested we try a variety of different medications, both over the counter and prescription. and finally after finding what did not work for me i was grateful to find that did. >> and has this changed your life significantly and improved the quality of your life, finding the right medication? >> finding the right medication to manage my symptoms was so important in order to get the right treatment, and having my doctor be a partner in that.
managing the abdominal pain and diarrhea i was experiencing. this drug may not be for everyone, but it's worth talking to your doctor about. there's some great resources out there. we live in a wonderful time as far as medical discovery and research is out there. you can go to ibsdandamy.com. and tools on how to talk to your doctor and rip that band-aid off and have a frank discussion. it can be a little bit important because why suffer longer than you have to. >> it's great to talk to you, amy. congratulations on your success athletically as well as maintaining a positive attitude. really appreciate your openness. >> thank you so much for having me. i'm very grateful to be here. >> absolutely. thank you again and the website amy mentioned is ibsdandamy.com to find out more about her story and the treatment that's worked for her. and now let's head over to holly. >> thanks, molly.
