Today’s September post is months in the making. Something a little different. A former teacher who now lives in Burke County contacted me last December. Margaret Hayes said she loved reading about all these #MollysKids. Wanted to do something for them. You do what you know, and she knew how to sew. So for every single #MollysKids I’ve written about since December 20th, 2016, Margaret has shipped a handmade pillow to their home with a special pillow pocket to hold a book.
Matt Atapovich says his 15-year-old daughter Kaila is his hero. She was diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia in October 2014. He says he's her full-time caregiver. Kaila is a sophomore at St. Stephens High School in Hickory. She's going on year three of treatments and visits to Brenner Children's Hospital. Earlier this year she finished chemotherapy after having to go through it for 28 months straight.
Since we've just begun Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and Brynn was one of #MollysKids last year, I wanted to send you a quick update on how she's doing. I looked back at her post from 2016 and couldn't believe the date - it was on September 20th! This year on September 20th, she will be taking her LAST CHEMO after two-plus long years of daily medication for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. If you remember, she was diagnosed in July 2015.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
