    What's Covered, What's Not with the ASCO Survivorship Guidelines

    in Family

    CURE Magazine ran a recent blog about the newly issued evidence-based guidelines for cancer survivorship by American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Kathy LaTour, their Editor at Large, says "it's about time." The new guidelines address the areas of "neuropathy, fatigue and depression, and anxiety." Quality care for these fall-out issues isn't as recognized as one would hope. 


    Joanna Montgomery is among those dealing with chronic cancer. Her diagnosis of a rare stage 3c aggressive cancer came just five days after delivering her "miracle" baby girl. Since 2012, she's wavered between remission and death. Her story has put a face to millions of other survivors dealing with the fall-out issues of cancer ... and Joanna's done the bulk of the telling. From blogging for the Huffington Post and writing a column for "The Stir" with Cafe Mom, to national spotlights like the Katie Couric Show, she's bared the nitty-gritty of living and dealing with chronic cancer.


    Molly MacDonald had no family history and 13 years of clear mammograms before cancer invaded her life. Though she considered her case "mild", treatment regimens took a toll on her ability to work and support her family. That prompted her to bridge the financial gap for others; she founded The Pink Fund in 2006.  With partnerships from Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy and Ford Warriors in Pink, among others, The Pink Fund is able to meet basic needs, while decreasing stress levels; thereby improving survivorship outcomes and quality of life.


    Join us for a riveting conversation about survivorship during this quarterly feature with CURE Magazine.

    Life After a Cancer Diagnosis: Survivorship and Advocacy

    in Current Events

    "I had a choice: I could just be angry about it but do nothing about it except just focus on my own sense of loss. Or I could make the most of something bad by turning it into an opportunity to do something for other people. LIVESTRONG motivated me to choose the latter."

    Two-time cancer survivor Alex Hohmann will talk about his fundraising for the LIVESTRONG Foundation and life after cancer.
    Since his diagnosis, Alex has used social networking tools to connect with fellow cancer survivors, fundraise for various cancer charities, educate young men about testicular cancer, and advocate for cancer research and awareness.

    Call-in # 1-347-850-8445

    About our guest:
    Alex Hohmann came to the United States from Brazil the first time when he was only two years old and settled permanently in this country thirty years ago just before starting college in Philadelphia, where he would go on to live for many years. He continued on to pursue graduate degrees in economics and in finance and currently works in the telecom industry. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 1996 and again in 2008, the second diagnosis prompting him to want to do more to support cancer causes. He has been living in New Jersey with his husband Sean since 2002 and spends his free time fundraising, running, gardening and complaining about rightwing politicians.
