The HealthCentral Network Signs Spunky 'Midlife Gals' for Comedic Relief on Alzheimer's, Skin Care Sites

ARLINGTON, Va., May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Who says the best times of your life have already come and gone?

The HealthCentral Network, Inc. ( has recently brought on The Midlife Gals, two sisters from Texas who prove that along with wrinkles and the responsibility of caring for their elderly mother comes the opportunity to cut-up and bring a smile to the face of others.

Known for their personal blog, Kelly and Sally Jackson will be writing tongue-in-cheek reflections on and about growing old, in addition to providing videos reflecting their off-the-wall sense of humor about aging.

"Going to HealthCentral is better than calling your best friend in Dallas to get a diagnosis because she is the worst hypochondriac in west Texas!" Sally Jackson said. "We are so excited to bring the gift of laughter to the people -- patients, caregivers, wrinkly women -- who need laughter the most."

The Gals' blogs and videos can be seen at and

"Watching your parents grow older and face debilitating diseases like Alzheimer's, in addition to watching yourself turn gray, can be overwhelming," said Chris Schroeder, CEO and President of The HealthCentral Network. "The Midlife Gals remind us that it's OK, even therapeutic, to laugh during times of stress."
