""I had a 2-year-old. I couldn't pick him up anymore because it was uncomfortable and painful," she says. So she scoured stores and the Internet for a better option, stumbling on an Italian company called Solidea, manufacturer of a new concept in compression garments made from a soft, wave-like fabric with a design for a sleeve that runs the entire length of the arm to the shoulder."
"So what was the verdict? First of all it was felt that the phrase “war on cancer” should be abandoned, since this military terminology precludes a more nuanced assessment of the situation. Important progress has been made in extending survival and improving patients’ quality of life, which the dichotomy of “victory” or “defeat” fails to reflect. Furthermore, a war can only be won or lost, but cancer is many different diseases, and during the past decades, progress has been spectacular in some cancers (eg, testicular, early breast, pediatric), while in many others it has been only marginal or nonexistent."
"Many describe post-treatment as a time of not so much getting back to normal as it is finding their own personal “new normal.” Concerns about the cancer coming back are often a part of this time. Even years after treatment, events like follow-up visits, new aches and pains, or the anniversary of the diagnosis can trigger worries. "
"Participants were in a welcoming supportive environment where they can found understanding and support. The retreat offers an opportunity to look at the issues surrounding their breast cancer, gather information, and move beyond an intellectual understanding of the disease. Exploring feelings and fears is an essential part of the healing process. They enjoyed guided discussions about issues specific to women with metastatic breast cancer, including dealing with difficult feelings, living with advanced breast cancer, decreasing stress. There were discussion groups, writing workshops,"
"She took sick days for chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and other treatments, but for the most part she has continued her life as normal, working at Park Elementary School in Munhall and organizing special programs for her students and their parents to promote literacy.
"She really wants to be as normal as possible," said Michelle Blasko, a Park Elementary special education teacher. "She always says that she has cancer -- cancer doesn't have her."

"The PICC line dressing covers give women an opportunity to celebrate their style through the many colors and patterns offered while on the road to recovery."
"In 2012, researchers published the discovery that small particles known as exosomes are secreted by tumors to seed the creation and spread of cancer metastases. These same tumor-secreted exosomes have also been implicated in death of immune cells necessary to combat cancer and they facilitate the ability of tumors to create their own blood supplyfor survival."

Hematology Oncology | Women with higher circulating levels of carotenoids, including alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, were at a reduced risk for breast cancer, according to results of a pooled analysis.
"Dr. Newcomer began his presentation with a graph showing that unless qualitative cost measures are implemented in health care, by 2018 it will take half of a family’s income to pay for insurance premiums and out-of-pocket expenses. “Naturally, we can’t let that happen, so it’s incumbent on people like those of us here in San Diego to do something about it. To that end, I’m going to talk about a solution we attempted at UnitedHealthcare called the ‘episode payment’ project,” said Dr. Newcomer."

"Putting these results in perspective, Peter Ravdin, MD, moderator of a San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium press conference where ATLAS findings were discussed, said that in the United States, there is currently a different strategy for pre- and postmenopausal women.
