This Guy’s Wife Got Cancer, So He Did Something Unforgettable. The Last 3 Photos Destroyed Me.

This Guy’s Wife Got Cancer, So He Did Something Unforgettable. The Last 3 Photos Destroyed Me. | cancer trainning | Scoop.it

"The first time photographer Angelo Merendino met Jennifer, he knew she was the one. They fell in love and got married in New York’s Central Park, surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones.

Five months later Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer. From Angelo’s blog: “I remember the exact moment…Jen’s voice and the numb feeling that enveloped me. That feeling has never left. I’ll also never forget how we looked into each other’s eyes and held each other’s hands. ‘We are together, we’ll be ok.’”

Throughout her battle, Angelo decided to photograph it. He wanted to humanize  the face of cancer on the face of his wife. The photos speak for themselves."

About Angelo Merendino:

"Angelo and Jennifer’s story is tragic, but it’s in the face of a tragedy such as this, that we rise above. In Angelo’s case, he has started an organization to help women with their financial struggles during their trials with breast cancer."

Living With Cancer: Tumbling Blocks

4 reasons why patients should blog

4 reasons why patients should blog | cancer trainning | Scoop.it
Writing a blog about one’s experience as a patient can be cathartic.

Via Marie Ennis-O'Connor
theresa berry's insight:

patients who blog could have a head up for what to except and how to talk to family members and get through all the tough times thart are ahead and how they can be helped and how they can help others. plus you can ask questions that will be answers. I think bloging would be good for many reasons but there are bad sides to bloging, sometimes youll hear things you dont want to hear or find things that could be scary.

Stories about Robach’s breast cancer diagnosis ignore the evidence

Stories about Robach’s breast cancer diagnosis ignore the evidence | cancer trainning | Scoop.it

"It’s a jaw-dropper of a story. A reluctant television reporter is persuaded by her producers to have a mammogram in front of the cameras. A few weeks later, she reveals the results on air: The test she initially didn’t want found cancer.

In an essay for ABC News, her employer, Amy Robach wrote:

The doctors told me bluntly: “That mammogram just saved your life.”

If you’re a woman, this is the kind of news that sends a cold stab of fear. Here’s a professional in the prime of her life with no family history and, by her own estimation, very little in the way of personal risk. And she’s young — just 40 years old.

The problem with Robach’s story is that it is too scary. It seems to be a play for ratings in November, a month when television stations rely on viewership numbers to set advertising rates.

The personal cancer story is familiar and gratifying territory for Good Morning America, a show that took over the top spot in the competitive morning show market while covering anchor Robin Roberts’ battle with myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS. That coverage also was criticized by some media watchdogs."

cancer shows up to fast and it gets to the best of us and it effects more americas now then we can cure it and thts sad. we think it could never happen to us and now millions of people come in with complaints and turns out they have cancer. Daughters lose mothers, sisters lose sisters, growning up i was told as you grow up you will lose many people no one ever told me did would be my mom and my best friend from cancer. nothing we do can stop this from happening to those around us.

Brenda Goodman also brings out some very important points about responsible journalism and how the story of Amy Robach was played out in the news. She explains why the headline, "A Mammogram saved my Life" is misleading and refers to the article we posted by Peggy Ornstein for The New York Times Magazine, which begins: I used to believe that a mammogram saved my life. To see Peggy's article called A Feel Good War on Breast Cancer go to: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/28/magazine/our-feel-good-war-on-breast-cancer.html?_r=1&


Maria Fowler's curator insight, November 13, 2013 2:23 PM

I was extreemly frustrated by this announcement. While I feel for Amy Robach, the "mammography saved my life" over simplification is unhelpful. And, while I'm sure she has a great medical team, fo her to announce that she is "going to be aggressive" with treatment and get a Bilateral Mastectomy BEFORE she even knows what the stage and grade of her cancer are... well, that is extremely disturbing. I can't fathom a medical prfessional agreeing to treatment without first knowing the extent of the disease. Additionally, leading women to believe that a double mastectomy will save your life is another lie which research does not show to be true. So, another opportunity to educate is going by the wayside as the specticle of cancer takes the limelight.

Feasibility and efficacy of a supervised exercise intervention in de-conditioned cancer survivors during the early survivorship phase: the PEACH trial - Springer

after cemo i know the body is tried and weak but exercises could help the body get through it and working the body and pushing through things just might work, taking walks or moving your legs or arms can help a person after cemo. my mom never did that she was to sick so most people with stage 4 cancer it would do worst then better for them to work out and exercise. but the cancer race i am doing there are a lot of people who have had or are fighting cancer and they are out there for 3 days walking with the rest of us. some times you just cant give up.

The PEACH trial suggests that 8 weeks of supervised aerobic exercise training was feasible and may improve aerobic fitness, fatigue and quality of life in de-conditioned cancer survivors during the early survivorship phase.

Implications for Cancer Survivors

Exercise interventions commenced in the early survivorship phase appear safe, feasible and may lead to improvements in QOL and fatigue.

New Proteins Linked to Cancer

New Proteins Linked to Cancer | cancer trainning | Scoop.it
The discovery of a new protein - called Rce1 - gives hope for potential cancer targets, as it controls another class of proteins involved in cell division, and ultimately, cancer.

does everything give you cancer like i feel like i have to make my own food and live off the land to not have high risks of cancer. how bad will it be in the next year or 5 for that matter.

Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 3, 2013 9:18 AM

Researchers from The Institute of Cancer Research in London have found that a protein called Rce1 plays an important role in converting healthy cells into cancerous ones. It is a member of a new protein family called glutamate intramembrane proteases.

Rce1 is an intramembrane protease - meaning it can cut off certain parts of other membrane-associated proteins - but the researchers were not able to put this protein in any of the three currently known families of intramembrane proteases.

Prof. David Barford, leader of the study, commented “"Our findings underline just how much of the fundamental processes of life we still do not understand.”

Cancer deaths rise to 8.2 million, breast cancer sharply up

Cancer deaths rise to 8.2 million, breast cancer sharply up | cancer trainning | Scoop.it

"* Some 14.1 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2012

* WHO agency sees new cases up to 19.3 million by 2025

* Experts say marked rise in breast cancer must be addressed

By Kate Kelland

LONDON, Dec 12 (Reuters) - The global death toll from cancer rose to 8.2 million in 2012 with sharp rises in breast cancer as the disease tightened its grip in developing nations struggling to treat an illness driven by Western lifestyles.

Cancer deaths were up 8 percent from 7.6 million in a previous survey in 2008 and breast cancer killed 522,000 women last year, up 14 percent in the same period, according to the World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

"Breast cancer is also a leading cause of cancer death in the less developed countries of the world," said David Forman, head of IARC's Section of Cancer Information, the group that compiles the global cancer data.

He said this was "partly because a shift in lifestyles is causing an increase in incidence, and partly because clinical advances to combat the disease are not reaching women living in these regions."

An estimated 14.1 million people developed cancer in 2012, up from 12.7 million in 2008. And 1.7 million women were newly diagnosed with breast cancer last year, up by more than 20 percent from 2008.

IARC's report, called GLOBOCAN 2012, gives the most up-to-date estimates for 28 different types of cancer in 184 countries and offers an overview of the global cancer burden.

It found that the most commonly diagnosed cancers worldwide in men and women combined were lung, breast and colorectal cancers. The most common causes of cancer death were lung, liver and stomach cancers.

i think its crazy that cancer spreads across the nation that we can't stop it and i worry being 18 and not knowing what my chances are or how it can be stopoped and if cancer is already there. the doctors i know do what they can to catch it or stop it but cancer seems to be winning at this taking life instead of saving it.
