When brain cancer attacked his craft-brew-loving wife, Louis Dolgoff devised a charity just for her.
On August 29, 2009, Laurie Dolgoff was near the end of a long, agonizing journey. The cancer in her brain – a glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and malignant of brain tumors – would not be stopped, and the 55-year-old Peoria fashion associate had only meager possession of her faculties. She couldn’t speak and could barely move.
Even after high-profile tragedies, a silent epidemic of prescription drug overprescription, abuse and overdose continues to plague Arizona.
It was a syringe full of medicine that plunged her down the rabbit hole, and medicine that kept her there, dragging her deeper into a hinterland of darkness, till she could barely remember the woman she once was – or, really, anything at all.
A rash of discrimination cases raises the question: How well does Arizona protect its pregnant workers?
Stacey Smith was mystified when her work hours were abruptly docked at Tutor Time in Queen Creek. The Mesa resident says she received glowing reports from both customers and colleagues at the daycare

Steve May made waves as a brash Arizona lawmaker. Now the pseudo-homeless pol’s a vagabond advocate for minority groups.
When former Arizona congressman Steve May announced on Facebook last September that he was shuffling off his possessions and calling his Cadillac Escalade home, many of his 4,700-plus friends freaked out, offering their couches, carports and condolences.
But May says the plan – dubbed “DWNSIZE,” after the vanity plate on his Escalade – was entirely by design. “I did DWNSIZE for many reasons, none of them out of necessity,” May says. “It has been a learning experience for me.”
Every day people venture into Arizona’s wilderness ill-equipped to contend with its dangers. So we asked two “survivormen” to school us in the art of staying alive in mettle-testing scenarios, from wandering alone in the desert without water to fending off hypothermia to encountering the venomous fangs of a rattler. It’s everything you always wanted to know about edible twigs and dung-befouled water, but were afraid to ask.
