Group helps unite young adult cancer survivors. Close Group helps unite young adult cancer survivors By Annie Goodman Published January 30, 2013 FoxNews.com advertisement. About 72,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer annually. So many times, young adult cancer survivors tell me their symptoms were dismissed by doctors who did not think it was anything serious. I immediately went to the doctor when I felt a large-sized lump in my breast. When I was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, I was already Stage 2B. For many older patients, it was shocking to them that I was only 31 years old and being treated for breast cancer. While I was in treatment, I wanted to meet other young adults who were also cancer survivors. Young adults have the unique challenge of not wanting to burden friends with war stories of chemotherapy or doctor appointment schedules. While still in chemotherapy, I received an invitation for a summit in New York City with a group called Stupid Cancer, ...

Adult survivors of childhood cancer have an increased risk for suicidal thoughts, even decades after their cancer treatments ended, according to a study led by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute scientists. The researchers report in the Journal of Clinical Oncology that nearly eight percent of childhood cancer survivors said they have experienced suicidal thoughts, or ideation. "Our findings underscore the importance of recognizing the connection between childhood cancer survivors' physical health issues and their risk for suicidal thoughts, as some of the conditions may be treatable," said Christopher Recklitis, PhD, MPH, the study's lead author and a psychologist and director of research in the Perini Family Survivors' Center at Dana-Farber.

... October 4, 2012 Improving confidence keeps breast cancer survivors exercising October 4, 2012 Medical Xpress —More than 40 percent of older breast cancer survivors are insufficiently active after leaving a supervised program. Regular exercise may reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence and breast cancer-related mortality, experts say, making it crucial to effectively target breast cancer survivors who do not engage in regular physical activity for interventions. Researchers at Oregon State University partnered with researchers at Oregon Health and Science University who had conducted a clinical trial to understand the benefits of a 12-month supervised exercise program in 69 older breast cancer survivors. They found that breast cancer survivors with higher self-efficacy, or confidence to overcome exercise-related barriers such as being too tired, were far more likely to continue exercising on their own. It is the first study to assess predictors of behavior after a ...

Child Cancer Survivors Overlooked Most Survivors of Childhood Cancer Don’t Get Recommended Follow-Up Care By Charlene Laino WebMD Health News Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD. Male and poor or uninsured childhood cancer survivors are least likely to receive follow-up care, Nathan tells WebMD. According to Nathan, nearly two-thirds of childhood cancer survivors develop one or more chronic health problems as they age. Breast Screen Underutilized Nathan says he is particularly concerned about survivors at increased risk for heart problems or breast cancer. One in five women who received chest radiation for childhood cancer will develop breast cancer before age 45, so current guidelines call for them to have a mammogram every year starting at age 25, a far younger age than recommended for most women. Similarly, up to half of childhood ...

On Sunday, June 1, 2014, thousands of people around the world will unite to observe the 27th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. National Cancer Survivors Day is a cherished annual worldwide celebration of life. It is the one day each year that we pause to honor everyone who is living with a history of cancer – including America’s nearly 14 million cancer survivors. “A ‘survivor’ is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life,” according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. “But the truth is that more people are living longer and better quality lives after cancer than ever before. National Cancer Survivors Day is an opportunity for these cancer survivors to come together and celebrate this new reality in cancer survivorship.

Date: September 24, 2012 Source: Wiley Summary: Many survivors of adolescent and young adult cancers avoid routine medical care because it's too expensive, despite the fact that most have health insurance, according to a new study. Many survivors of adolescent and young adult cancers avoid routine medical care because it's too expensive, despite the fact that most have health insurance. Medical care in the years after a cancer diagnosis is particularly important for detecting any long-term health conditions associated with their cancer treatment; however, little is known about the extent of care that survivors of adolescent and young adult cancers receive in the years after their diagnosis and treatment. While adolescent and young adult cancer survivors had similar rates of being uninsured as those without cancer 21 percent versus 23 percent, survivors were 67 percent more likely to forgo routine ...

As more people than ever survive cancer and live longer, the National Cancer Institute NCI has stepped up efforts to study and support this growing population. In 1999, an estimated 8.4 million people are living with a history of cancer. These individuals were diagnosed as children or adults with different kinds of cancer. Yet there have been few follow-up studies of long-term survivors that look at the characteristics of these individuals to uncover factors that might enhance survival for all cancer patients. Acknowledging the need for more information on the demographics of cancer survivors, their current health, and their unique needs, NCI established the Office of Cancer Survivorship OCS in 1996. In 1999, the office's budget and operating capacity were tripled. The office supports ...

*  Cancer survivor
Whether a person becomes a survivor at the time of diagnosis or after completing treatment, whether people who are actively dying are considered survivors, and whether healthy friends and family members of the cancer patient are also considered survivors, varies from group to group. 1 Cancer survivors often have specific medical and non-medical needs related to their cancer experience. Adolescent and young adult survivors Barriers to quality long-term follow-up care. For the AYA population, 2 out of 3 childhood cancer survivors will develop 1 complication due to the therapy they received and 1 out of 3 will develop serious or life-threatening complications, meaning they will most likely need treatment and follow-up care. Furthermore, since AYA survivors are diagnosed and treated at such a young age, their length of time being a survivor is much longer than their adult counterparts, making it more likely they will face a second primary cancer in their lifetime. ...

Petition Seeks Sexy, Comfy Breast Cancer Survivor Bra. 3 years ago by Samantha Escobar 2 Comments ». I used to sign a ton of petitions, but then I realized I was getting about 8 million more in my inbox as a result. Once in a while, I still receive a few petitions, and this was the one I saw yesterday and am so happy I received: a woman’s desire to have Victoria’s Secret create a breast cancer bra for survivors who are looking for something comfortable and pretty to wear. A woman named Alanna Maiden, 27, started the petition because she saw that her mother, a breast cancer survivor, had very few options on comfortable garments to wear after a single mastectomy. “I started the petition because I wanted to give something back to my mom and to other breast cancer survivors. My mom had a single mastectomy when I was just 6 years old and since then I’ve seen her struggle with finding mastectomy bras that fit properly, that are flattering and that look nice. She says she wants every survivor to ...

(1/3293) Pregnancy after atrial repair for transposition of the great arteries.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of pregnancy in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) who have undergone atrial repair. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis (1962-94) of 342 TGA patients who underwent atrial repair. Of 231 known late survivors, 48 were women over 18 years old who were interviewed about possible reproductive plans and previous pregnancies. As a control, comparison was made with data of 57 500 women (mean age 26 years) obtained from the Swiss Statistical Bank in Bern. RESULTS: Mean follow up was 13.7 years; 66% remained asymptomatic, 29% had mild to moderate cardiac symptoms, and 5% suffered from severe cardiac symptoms (New York Heart Association grade III-IV). Thirty six of the 48 women wished to bear children and, to date, there have been 10 live births, two spontaneous first trimester abortions, and one induced abortion at 16 weeks. During pregnancy there was one case of cardiac deterioration and two cases of pneumonia. There was no evidence of congenital heart disease in the children. CONCLUSIONS: In this relatively small series the completion of pregnancy in women with TGA who had undergone atrial repair and who had normal functional cardiac status was uncomplicated  (+info)

(2/3293) Survival and prognostic factors of invasive aspergillosis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.

To determine prognostic factors for survival in bone marrow transplant recipients with invasive aspergillosis (IA), we retrospectively reviewed 27 IA cases observed in our bone marrow transplantation unit between January 1994 and October 1994. On 30 September 1997, six patients were alive and disease-free. The median survival after IA diagnosis was 36 days. Of eight variables found to be related to survival according to the univariate analysis, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) status at IA diagnosis (P = .0008) and the cumulative prednisolone dose taken during the week preceding IA diagnosis (CPDlw) (P < .0001) were selected by a backward stepwise Cox regression model. A three-stage classification was established: CPD1w of < or =7 mg/kg (3 of 8 patients died; 60-day survival rate, 88%), CPD1w of >7 mg/kg and no GVHD (9 of 10 patients died; 60-day survival rate, 20%), and CPD1w of >7 mg/kg and active acute grade 2 or more or extensive chronic GVHD (9 of 9 patients died; 30-day survival rate, 0) (P < .0001).  (+info)

(3/3293) A case of long-term survival with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage central-type squamous cell lung cancer treated by photodynamic therapy.

The present report is on a 67-year-old man with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage centrally located squamous cell cancer of the lung. He was diagnosed as small cell lung cancer with multiple metastasis to the ipsilateral lung and was found to have a central-type early-stage squamous cell cancer by bronchoscope. After obtaining a complete response to the small cell lung cancer with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, photodynamic therapy was applied to the squamous cell carcinoma, resulting in complete disappearance of the tumor. Recurrence of small cell cancer occurred at the ipsilateral lung and this patient died of small cell cancer 8 years after initiation of treatment. Post mortem examination confirmed complete disappearance of squamous cell cancer treated by photodynamic therapy. This is a rare case of long-term survival with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage central-type squamous cell lung cancer successfully treated by photodynamic therapy.  (+info)

(4/3293) Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

(5/3293) Ultrasound B-mode changes in the uterus and ovaries and Doppler changes in the uterus after total body irradiation and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in childhood.

Internal genitalia and uterine blood flow were assessed by ultrasound in 12 females 4.0-10.9 years after total body irradiation and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for childhood leukaemia or lymphoma. Median age of the participants was 12.7 years (range 6.1-17.6) at bone marrow transplantation and 21.5 years (11.6-25.6) at the follow-up study. At follow-up all had entered puberty and 11/12 females had experienced the menarche. Eight females received sex steroid replacement therapy, three had spontaneous pubertal development and one woman experienced symptoms of estrogen deficiency. Median uterine and ovarian volumes were significantly reduced to -2.6 standard deviation scores (SDS) (-6.3 to -0.6), P = 0.002, and -2.6 SDS (-4.8 to -0.5), P = 0.002, respectively, compared with normal controls. Follicles were only detectable in two individuals. Uterine blood flow was impaired, as a systolic blood flow could be measured in 6/9 individuals, and a diastolic blood flow in 1/9 females. Our results indicate that the prescribed dosage of hormone replacement therapy, which was sufficient to induce bleeding and suppress other stigmata of premature menopause, was inadequate to generate normal uterine growth. In order to achieve uterine growth higher doses of hormone replacement therapy may be required. Our results confirm pelvic ultrasound as a reliable tool for investigation of internal female genitalia; however, in an infertility setting further tests are indicated.  (+info)

(6/3293) Attentional ability among survivors of leukaemia.

Attentional ability in 19 survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and 19 sibling controls was assessed using a neuropsychological model of attention. Analysis revealed that children who had received treatment for leukaemia exhibited significantly poorer performance on measures of the "focus encode" and "focus execute" elements of attention and on measures of the ability to respond to external cues and feedback. No significant differences in performance were found for measures of sustained attention and the ability to shift attention. These results indicate that children who have received treatment for leukaemia may experience highly specific attentional deficits that could have an impact on academic performance, particularly mathematical and reading skills. It is suggested that this underlying attentional deficit might be the source of the neuropsychological sequelae associated with the disease. Future attempts at remediation should incorporate activities specifically designed to ameliorate focusing difficulties.  (+info)

(7/3293) Patient survival after D1 and D2 resections for gastric cancer: long-term results of the MRC randomized surgical trial. Surgical Co-operative Group.

Controversy still exists on the optimal surgical resection for potentially curable gastric cancer. Much better long-term survival has been reported in retrospective/non-randomized studies with D2 resections that involve a radical extended regional lymphadenectomy than with the standard D1 resections. In this paper we report the long-term survival of patients entered into a randomized study, with follow-up to death or 3 years in 96% of patients and a median follow-up of 6.5 years. In this prospective trial D1 resection (removal of regional perigastric nodes) was compared with D2 resection (extended lymphadenectomy to include level 1 and 2 regional nodes). Central randomization followed a staging laparotomy. Out of 737 patients with histologically proven gastric adenocarcinoma registered, 337 patients were ineligible by staging laparotomy because of advanced disease and 400 were randomized. The 5-year survival rates were 35% for D1 resection and 33% for D2 resection (difference -2%, 95% CI = -12%-8%). There was no difference in the overall 5-year survival between the two arms (HR = 1.10, 95% CI 0.87-1.39, where HR > 1 implies a survival benefit to D1 surgery). Survival based on death from gastric cancer as the event was similar in the D1 and D2 groups (HR = 1.05, 95% CI 0.79-1.39) as was recurrence-free survival (HR = 1.03, 95% CI 0.82-1.29). In a multivariate analysis, clinical stages II and III, old age, male sex and removal of spleen and pancreas were independently associated with poor survival. These findings indicate that the classical Japanese D2 resection offers no survival advantage over D1 surgery. However, the possibility that D2 resection without pancreatico-splenectomy may be better than standard D1 resection cannot be dismissed by the results of this trial.  (+info)

(8/3293) How much better can we predict dialysis patient survival using clinical data?

OBJECTIVE: To use three approaches to compare dialysis survival prediction based on variables included in the Standardized Mortality Ratio (SMR) with prediction based on a clinically enriched set of variables. DATA SOURCE: The United States Renal Data System Case Mix Severity data set containing demographic, clinical, functional, nutritional, and treatment details about a random sample of 4,797 adult dialysis patients from 291 treatment units, incident to dialysis in 1986 and 1987. STUDY DESIGN: This observational study uses baseline patient characteristics in two proportional hazards survival models: the BASE model incorporates age, race, sex, and cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD); the FULL model includes these and additional clinical information. We compare each model's performance using (1) the c-index, (2) observed median survival in strata of predicted risk, and (3) predicted survival for patients with different characteristics. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The FULL model's c-index (0.709, 0.708-0.711) is significantly higher than that of the BASE model (0.675, 0.675-0.676), indicating better discrimination. Second, the sickest patients identified by the FULL model were in fact sicker than those identified as sickest by the BASE model, with observed median survival of 451 days versus 524. Third, survival predictions for sickest patients using the FULL model are one-third shorter than those based on the BASE model. CONCLUSIONS: The model with more detailed clinical information predicted survival better than the BASE model. Clinical characteristics enable more accurate predictions, particularly for the sickest patients. Thus, clinical characteristics should be considered when making quality assessments for dialysis patients.  (+info)

How would you, as a health care professional, help the cancer survivors cope and understand cancer and chronic?


  • How would you, as a health care professional, help the cancer survivors cope and understand cancer and chronic?
  • I am not any sort of professional, but for some reason I know about cancer pretty enough... Maybe somehow this still *little* understanding is lowering my risk of getting this disease by many precautions taken everyday (not all can be made since poison is everywhere and escalating) ... First its important to know and understand your enemy... Basically cancer is always fully a part of your body... Level of this connection is indicating if its removal is lethal or not (like you can figure out if you have just finger to be cut out or its your heart and you are stuck with little hope)... Cancer is yours body cells but just gone mad and acting in danger to your body (some people even wish that their cancer type is just a taint on healthy body)... Cancer is a creation of cells mutation making healthy cell turn into unnaturally multiplying tumour (often spreading in organism by circulation systems like blood and then growing in new body parts)... Sometimes growth is even slow but just in lethal place making organs die from no oxygen, growing pressure or no feeding to healthy essential organ... Everyone body has the defense system to deal with most of the dangers (mainly outside bio and physical damage like viruses and contamination), but this system has the borders of its endurance... and cancer is usually a production of this border crossing (further is only death)... Your body can react to cancer appearance if to speak about little amount of wrongly acting cells (some cancer is even breaking through this though) and here is also a hope for some chemotherapy and radiotherapy patients, but your defense system can fail to overwhelming *attack* (growth)... or you can weaken your defense system for the moment like by using antibiotics or by going through disease or any other same effecting factor (many cancers are just too late in diagnosis) ... Its pretty ironic that two of cancer creating factors are the first and quite effective methods to deal with cancer... Their use came from fact that too much radiation or chems can kill cancer (what could happen to cells at begging instead of their change into cancer if not a balanced dose from factors)... It reminds attempt to chase disease from body by use of fire... in controlled doses (wounding you instead of killing)... Torture of today world (and russian roulette)... Cancer is like parasite born from own body by unfortunate circumstances that turn into horror from fact of unfair battle... Cancer survivors are simply not full winners until their body is fully clear from cancer and their defense system is restored and cancer factors are deleted from life (gaining back weight and body harmony)... Many ands for good eye... and thin line to cross... I guess its a bit hard to track all the understanding of cancer since its actually a base name for a lot of diseases of same nature... I guess the only one way to gain some advantage is to take some precautions seriously before cancer will clutch its hands on our body... Cancer is one of the most difficult dangers to life... I think even worse than AIDS... and ironically... rating in possibility with blindly evolving civilization (since many raised and new factors are coming from new polluting technologies - like most of them).


How would you, as a health care professional, help the cancer survivors cope and understand cancer and chronic?


  • How would you, as a health care professional, help the cancer survivors cope and understand cancer and chronic illness?
  • First of, you don't need to counsel a survivor. It's the terminally ill with cancer that need this help. You don't really need to tell them much as they find out this information from their Oncologist, nurses at chemo sessions. They could probably tell you more than you can advise them. I know, I've been there.


How do rock stars relate to cancer survivors?


  • Other than they donate alot of money to it, how do they relate to cancer survivors?
  • Rock stars are human beings who have mothers, fathers, spouses, children, friends, and relatives who can get cancer too . . rock stars can also get cancer . . they relate because they understand what it is like to have someone they love or even themselves have cancer. Cancer crosses all boundaries, affects all ages, both sexes, all countries, all races, all socio-economic groups, celebrities, rock stars . . no one is immune from cancer or its devastating affects. Why wouldn't rock stars relate to cancer survivors. List of celebrities including rock stars who have cancer, died from cancer, or been affected by cancer: Jason Mraz - childhood friend George Harrison (Beatle) - died from cancer Olivia Newton John - breast cancer David Cook - brother died from cancer Kylie Minogue - breast cancer Sheryl Crow - breast cancer Eric Carr (Kiss) - died from cancer Minnie Ripperton - died from cancer Carl Wilson - died from cancer Frank Zappa - died from cancer Melissa Etheridge - breast cancer Bob Marley - died from cancer Rod Stewart - thyroid cancer Ozzy Osbourne - wife Sharon had colon cancer and many more . . . .


Why are sexually abused survivors more likely to commit suicide?


  • particularly men. Why are they more liable to attempt suicide in later stage of their life? Why do they appear to practice drugs & alcohol more frequently than others? Is insomnia familiar in adult survivors?
  • The permanent damage done to the individual, physically and emotionally, can be so traumatic as to impact every factor of life. The inability to trust another person, limits relationships, in depth and duration. Loneliness and perceived rejection often leads to suicidal ideation. Drugs and alcohol are used to numb the pain of life as the survivor knows it. Insomnia is present as a means to cope with the fear night brings...many abuses have happened in the dark of night...few people, if any, will be trusted. kjl


What is the definition of a cancer survivor. Is there a certain length of time that passes?


  • I here people say thay are survivors. Is there really a definition or explanation as to what that means?
  • It just means that you had cancer. Any kind of cancer. And it was either removed or has gone into remission with chemo or radiation. You have survived it. I had breast cancer in 1999. They removed it. I went through 2 rounds of chemo and I finally got a clear CT scan--no more cancer. That was 7 years ago--I am a survivor. Don't make it too complicated.


If an apocalyptic flu broke out how long would it take for towns to me safe for survivors?

How long would it take for the past residents to not be dangerous to them? On CSI they once said that after fifteen years an exhumation doesn't stink but that's confined in a little box. Would it only be two or three years in an average house? I mean from the rotting bodies everywhere, not the virus which killed them.
