SORT BY Relevancy
Tune in for Part II of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) survivorship guidelines as we delve deeper into fall-out and future implications. Kathy LaTour hit upon the new evidence-based guidelines inside CURE Magazine. Last Monday's episode scratched the surface on how patients and physicians have dealt with chronic issues resulting from cancer treatment.
As a returning guest, Molly MacDonald provided our listeners with the latest milestones and partnerships of her non-profit, The Pink Fund. While she considered her cancer to be a "mild" case, her story of basic needs being threatened for herself and her five children was absolutely riveting. Tragedy turned triumph inspired a mission of providing a financial bridge for the women and men fighting for their lives during breast cancer treatment. Finances have a direct impact on the issues ASCO outlined.
Survivor and participant at the recent OMG! Stupid Cancer Summit, Diana DeVoe, also joined the discussion. For more than 20 years of survivorship she suffered with neuropathy, fatigue, depression, and anxiety ... and denial. She gave listeners an inside view of why the new guidelines may serve as a beacon of hope.
This week, the ASCO discussion continues on a much deeper level. Tune in to hear what it will take to achieve understanding and ultimate quality of care.
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.

"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."

Joyce will be speaking at the Kidney Cancer Survivors' Meeting at Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center on Friday, March 14.
Mike Lawing and Billy Foster, long-time survivors of kidney cancer, join her to talk about what they would say to a room full of cancer survivors.
Cancer is never "one and done" -- there is always the threat of recurrence, and the emotions generated by an encounter with cancer can be profound. Mike and Billy have learned lessons for keeping themselves on an even keel and their cancers at bay for nearly two decades each.
