    ASCO Survivorship Guidelines Part II: Implications and Fall-Out

    in Family

    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.

    Co-Surviving Traumatic Brain Injury

    in Health

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) happens when a bump, blow, jolt, or other head injury causes damage to the brain. Every year, millions of people in the U.S. suffer brain injuries. More than half are bad enough that people must go to the hospital. The worst injuries can lead to permanent brain damage or death. Half of all TBIs are from motor vehicle accidents. Military personnel in combat zones are also at risk.


    Join us for the 3-part series of looking at TBI in America. We will focus on sports related, military related and general causes of TBI and what you as a family member can do to co-survive this injury.

    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.

    100,000-dollar bet on DeVante Parker

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 113: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion believes the idea that Jarvis Landry, a 5-11 wide receiver completely devoid of athleticism could be a productive outside receiver for years to come stretches to the outer bounds of plausibility. 


    If the Dolphins draft a WR, they should hedge their bets on Landry and target a prototypical flanker such as Dorial Green-Beckham or Jaelen Strong.


    It would be impossible to decide between Nelson Agholor and Tre McBride if losing the bet meant a lifetime of indentured servitude.  


    Some of the callenged faced when attempting to incorporate subjective metrics into a prosect evaluation methodology include: time contraints, stylistic bias, confirmation bias, and survivorship bias. 


    Don't worry, the NFL Draft tout machine will soon be inundating us with Rashard Higgins analysis.

    Yoga for Cancer - By: Tari Prinster

    in Spirituality

    Tari Prinster is a cancer survivor, yoga teacher and author. She is the Founder of Yoga4Cancer, LLC (y4c) and the Retreat Project (nonprofit) – businesses that are bringing specialized yoga cancer survivors through classes & retreats.  Also she leads a robust teacher training program to help enable yoga teachers to best adapt all styles to fit the unique needs of cancer patients & survivors.


    In Tari’s own words, she recounts her background with yoga and cancer: ‘When I was fifty, I started a yoga practice on a hunch it would ease menopausal symptoms. It did! That was sixteen years ago. Today, I am an example that it is never too late to start, never too late to change. Yoga made me feel younger and stand straighter. I sleep better, my weight is good, and my bones are strong.


    I found yoga a powerful tool to manage the daily challenges of cancer treatments as well as the side effects and life-long vulnerabilities they create. I discovered yoga was more than a way to stay healthy. It gave me emotional support and spiritual comfort so needed during recovery.


    I was curious why yoga was doing so much for me. My research made it clear why yoga strengthens the immune system, thus providing, among other things, protection against a cancer reoccurrence.
