Please welcome Susan Braun, CEO of The V Foundation to The Best Ever You Show. Jim Valvano's dream of finding a cure for cancer is one shared by millions. Although we have not yet achieved this goal, every day we get a little bit closer and will continue to honor his inspiring words, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!” ®
Serving as the heartbeat of The V Foundation for Cancer Research, formed by ESPN and Jim in 1993, his words throughout the ESPY speech have never been more meaningful. After being diagnosed with cancer at the young age of 46, Jim dreamed of finding cures for cancer. Passionate and committed, he wanted to see his fight through to victory. As a former coach, he began to recruit his team of family and friends to lead the Foundation in his quest to eradicate the disease.

As many of you know, the month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Cancer is a serious illness in our society and most of us know someone close to us or through other associations who have survived their fight with cancer and some who have unfortunately lost their fight. Just this month Apple inventor Steve Jobs lost his fight to a rare form of pancreatic cancer, islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. This week’s show will focus on the past 30 years of cancer research and the current progress in the field. Millions of dollars both privately and from the government has been poured into the field of cancer research yet it seems we are no closer to a cure.
Steve Katz of Canine Cancer Research USA joins us for one hour to talk about this important subject.
"Cancer is cancer regardless of species, and discoveries in either dogs or humans will have rapid acceptance in the other species."-- Dr. Stephen Withrow, one of the world's leading canine oncologists
"Cancer kills up to half of all dogs more than ten years old." -- Shawn Messonnier, DVM (Preventing and Treating cancer in dogs)
"Each of our own pet dogs is at risk to suffer the devastating effects of cancer. One in four dogs will die of cancer and cancer is the number one cause of disease-related death in dogs over the age of two." -- Dr. Patricia N. Olson, CEO and President of Morris Animal Foundation
"We can learn more about cancer by working together. This program will advance our understanding of cancer in both animals and people." -- Dr. Douglas Yee, Director, Masonic Cancer Center
"Cancer is the leading cause of death among dogs and cats in the U.S., Europe and Japan. In fact, your pet is more likely to get cancer than you are. More than half of all dogs will die of cancer, and some breeds have even higher rates of death from the disease." -- Dr. Karen Becker, DVM
"One of the biggest oversights in modern medicine is the role of the immune system in cancer. Sure, it is researched, but there is almost no practical use of this knowledge in actual clinical medicine. If a veterinary client were to bring up the fact that systemic cancer almost always creates immune suppression to an average vet, there would be little actionable response." -- Dr. Demian Dressler, DVM
This is a rare opportunity to actually get a look through the eyes of two of the most gifted cancer research scientist in the world today. In this interview, Dr. Donald Trump and Dr. Candace Johnson of the Roswell Park Cancer Center will share some of the more promising kinds of research they are pioneering. This promises to be an informative and certainly an inspiring conversation. Join us!
This episode of the Above and Beyond show hosted by Cay Randall-May, Ph.D. will highlight the upcoming Arizona Centennial Cancer Research Fundraiser to be held February 2nd, 2012 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. Address of the hotel is 2400 E. Missouri.
Guests on today's program include Lisa Finder,author founder of Writers Unite to Fight Cancer the organization sponsoring the event, and Daniel Rubin, ND, noted naturopathic oncologist.
Lisa will discuss her book, "Black Sand" and how she has found inspiration through her work to raise funds for cancer research.
Cay was Dr. Rubin's patient when she herself was challenged with breast cancer two years ago. Together, they were able to combine treatments from both naturopathy and allopathic medicine for a successful outcome. She is delighted to have him as a guest on the show so that others will learn the value of naturopathy in cancer treatment and prevention.
Listeners will learn about the many aspects of the event including talks by various experts and a silent auction. Cay has donated one of her original paintings to the auction.
Everyone is invited to listen to this program to learn more about cancer research and prevention.
On the Wednesday, July 24th, 2013 broadcast at 2PM Pacific/5PM Eastern our special guest is entrepreneur, social media thought leader and Forbes Contributor Dan Munro aka @danmunro.
Dan recently penned a piece for Forbes titled: 'Big Government Opens Big Database For Cancer Research'
This catchy headline caught my attention since part of our mission at This Week In Oncology is to eliminate the esoterica from 'oncology-speak' and to present the significance of the discoveries, trends and developments in the cancer care and diagnostics in plain english for more general consumption.
Much progress has been realized in oncology of late with a fair amount of the promisesd upside of 'personalized [or individualized] medicine' often pointing to better outcomes via more targeted treatment of specific tumors based on their unique genetic signature.
So called 'big data' is in the news as ubiquitous technology, connectivity, the declining costs of massive data dragnets and disease specific mashups affords insights previously inaccessible to reseachers, clinicians and others interested in the diagnosis and/or treatment of oncology.
We'll get Dan's takes on his piece and see how he sees the confluence of these trends coming together for the benefits of patients.
