    Advances in Comparative Oncology Research

    in Pets

    November is canine cancer awareness month and on the November 2nd edition of Tripawd Talk Radio you'll learn how advances in comparative oncology research is uncovering new ways to diagnosis, treat and ultimately cure cancers in both people and pets.

    This fascinating discussion will be led by veterinary onocologist Dr. Avenelle Turner, DVM Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology) from the Veterinary Cancer Center in Southern California (http://vetcancergroup.com/about-us/our-doctors.html) and Dr. Kristy Richards, MD, PhD at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Department of Genetics (http://www.med.unc.edu/genetics/faculty/Kristy%20Richards,%20MD,%20PhD).

    Drs. Turner and Richards will discuss how cancer in animals mimics the same disease in people and you'll learn how cancer similarities between humans and dogs are identified and lead to new treatments for both species. For example, over 30 years ago bone marrow transplants were first developed for dogs, then subsequently done in people with lymphoma.

    As comparative oncology research awareness grows and more study collaborations occur between academic researchers and pharmaceutical companies, more treatments will be found for pets and people alike.

    Awarding the Extraordinary Healer in Oncology Nursing Care

    in Family

    Here at Because Hope Matters Radio, we often talk about the integral part nurses play in helping patients heal and connecting with their caregivers. CURE Magazine takes the time to recognize exemplary oncology nurses through an "Extraordinary Healer Award." The annual recognition attracts hundreds of essay submissions from patients, survivors, and caregivers across the nation.

    We're thrilled to provide another spotlight for CURE's recent award winner, Cindi Cantril. Essayist, Ann Tallman, wrote about her journey as a breast cancer survivor. Her portrayal of Cantril's care through diagnosis, surgery and treatment caught the attention of Kathy LaTour, editor-at-large at CURE Magazine. The giving, nurturing, and inspiring nature embedded in Cantril's fiber goes above and beyond. She created peer-to-peer support for patients; the "WINGS" Program helps women with all types of cancer, and a secondary WINGMEN group helps men. Cantril's drive to provide healing programs doesn't stop there; she also operates women's cancer retreats and Equine therapy.

    Among more than 750 of her peers and guest speaker, actor, producer, director and best-selling author Rob Lowe, and the cancer care community, Cantril received the distinguished award. She has provided more than 40 years of research, clinical care, program development and leadership in oncology nursing care. She has published over a dozen articles and authored several chapters of Building Legacy - Voices of Oncology Nurses. Cantril also received the Oncology Nursing Society's Distinguished Service Award in 2010, among other honors on her career path.

    Join us for our quarterly feature with Kathy LaTour, as we delve into the heart of oncology nursing and go above and beyond an ordinary care-watch.
