Someone Really Cares, a non-profit org.

This is a registered non-profit organization with the Secretary of State of Idaho, and is a result of many health issues & experiences that I have been blessed to be a recipient of because of heart failure and a anonymous heart organ donation

We are a registered non-profit entity with the Secretary of State in Idaho and have been since filling an application in late Feb. 2010 with the currently elected officials, which is where I reside, work, and sometimes play etc. Someone Really Cares, a non-profit organization is not competing for your disposable, after tax dollars, as we know most people are passionate about giving back to their c

Someone Really Cares, a 501c(3) non-profit org,
380 W. Mayfair Ct.
Boise, Idaho 83706

Dear Donors, Family & Friends,

It is with a deeply saddened heart, that I announce the closure of the non-profit Someone Really Cares, that I founded Feb 26th, 2010! A heartfelt thank you sent out to the donors, who chose to send in charitable contributions to help me educate kids and adults. The talks focused on importance of Heart Health and the equally important issue of learning more about anonymous organ donation, which has prolonged my life 7 years as of this correspondence.

It was a crushing blow that more of you did not believe in my abilities to educate nor see the value to communities that I could have possibly educated as Cardiovascular Disease is still on the rise in the United States. Part of the reason, can be attributed to unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise. There are of course other factors that your medical providers can share with you, provided one takes the initiative to ask!

I have poured everything I had into this endeavor for 4 1/2 years with not enough financial contributions to accomplish several other educational goals! I worked at it almost everyday, except the numerous days my health was not strong enough despite all the needed medications that I take daily. It has cost me more of my own financial resources than I expected in order to personally guarantee payments to all creditors and vendors for business expenses.

At this time, all financial obligations have been met and I am in the process of getting a few last items taken care of. This endeavor was of great value to those who attended my talks at schools and with people in various communities that I found myself in while traveling.

Sincerely yours,

Stu Bailey, Founder
Someone Really Cares, a non-profit org.

[02/20/14]   A serious question for everyone to ponder and make the best choice of "Where to be taken in case of a Heart Attack or Stroke?" I choose the Downtown St.Luke's Hospital on Bannock St./Broadway at home here in Boise, as they have taken excellent care of my heart issues and Sharp Memorial Hospital Hospital on Frost St. in Mission Valley when traveling!

Both of these medical facilities have copious notes about my medical history of cardiovascular problems & of my Anonymous Heart Organ Transplant!

Do you have such info in place for the ambulance, fire & police when they arrive on scene to provide you with the best & most accurate treatment plans?

*Any & all allergies also must be readily available to those Emergency 1st Responders I just mentioned above!

**Take a few minutes upon reading this to make those decisions now instead of when it happens, as it could mean the difference of living or dying!

Heart Disease Pictures: Heart Attack Symptoms, Heart Failure, Angioplasty and More

A good description of some heart information to look over and then go to your Primary Care Physician to seek additional, life saving techniques/tests if they feel a closer investigation needs to occur.

*If you have a family physician, that's fabulous, and if not then make an appt. to see one and develop a trusting relationship as medical questions or concerns as they come up. So grateful to my family physician of over a decade now! He aligned further testing and referrals to other specialists, which I am also grateful for as well!

If I ignored the symptoms that were active 8 years ago, in regards to my heart health, I would have died!

Plain and simple as that!

Heart-healthy diet helps men lower bad cholesterol, regardless of weight loss

An interesting article that gives more weight to Mediterranean Diet!

My question is simple, do I need to be dining on a cruise ship in Med. Sea to begin this regimen?

I always bring humor into presenting information, as it was successful when teaching elementary students, and when asked to share & educate (formally & informally) others about the importance of Heart Health! A heart-healthy diet helped men at high risk for heart disease reduce their bad cholesterol, regardless of whether they lost weight, in a new study. 04/26/2013

Metabolic disorders predict the hardening of the arterial walls already in childhood

An interesting study about arterial thickening in young children. As a blessed individual, who receives fabulous medical care here at home & on the road, I developed atherosclerosis a year post heart transplant.

Even so, I do my best to prevent further advancement of this condition in my donor heart, through a number of methods, ie diet, exercise, close monitoring of labs & tests by my fabulous medical team members!

My job entails exactly what Princess Diana's did! While educating others about the importance of heart health through my personal journey with bits of humor at certain times!

One thing that I learned while teaching elementary school is that students learn & remember things, when the teacher shares a bit of personal experience about a given subject they are teaching/lecturing about!

Anyone that knows me will verify how much humor & positive energy I bring to life everyday/night!

So, remember to get some fun exercise this weekend!



A great short video by a Cardiologist that I receive newsletters from on heart health. Do what you are able each day and the amount of steps will grow and become easier with time. I employ his suggestion to walk in new places, and that is what I love about living in Idaho. Lots of fabulous places to exercise/explore outdoors!

Have a fabulous weekend all and get some form of exercise each day/night!

A interesting article in the ongoing stem cell research and implementation of smart stem cells. I struggled with my EF numbers prior to my anonymous heart organ donor's heart transplant surgery. It is just minor surgery!

Grateful to be able to pass along information that may be of benefit to others who may currently be suffering from heart issues, or as a mode of preventive measures.

*Always seek medical attention for anything that may concern you! One technique that I employ in my daily life is keeping my vast medical team informed of anything that can pose a further health issue!

It is a daily maintenance, that pays dividends beyond my wildest dreams, plus I have a fabulously talented team that always go the extra distance to make sure that I receive the best medical care! Thanks again to everyone who has cared for me in the past, and those currently involved in keeping the humorous, neon yellow laced patient moving in a forward direction!

Don’t ignore the snore: Snoring may be early sign of future health risks

An interesting article to read over and ask your trusted medical team about!

Perhaps, this article will continue to inspire people to seek preventive testing and care, so that you may side step some of the serious Cardiovascular issues and procedures I have been blessed with!

It has all been for a purpose, and remains to be something I am passionate & very positive about daily!

~Stu Snoring may be more than a common bedtime nuisance, say researchers. According to their new study, snoring, even without sleep apnea, causes thickening and abnormalities the carotid artery - a potential precursor to atherosclerosis.

I am giving myself the best birthday & XMAS present, time off doing what I want or not doing anything as I so choose!

Do not need or want anything at this time, including phone calls, texts, faxes, e-mails, or visitors!

I have spent way too much time making others happy and running here and there!

It all stops now!

Happy Holidays to you and yours this year!
