Susan reached that point in her life where she was no longer a young adult trying to make it through the trials and tribulations of life that are young children, a new job and a traveling husband. But neither had she made it to the stage where the kids are in college, she has a steady job and her husband has time to spend quiet evenings at home with her. Susan had just turned 40. She celebrated with two parties, one for her family and one for her friends. Chocolate cake and ice cream were had at home, while facials, mani-pedis and Chianti were had while painting the town red.Breast, Breast cancer, Breast cancer screening, Cancer, Mammography
I would like to end our talk with a story of angels, of faith and of love. It is my story. It begins with the love of my wife; it ends with her love and the strength, the support, and the life giving energy that she is to me.
My story begins with a spot – a spot on my shoulder. Each day I would look at this spot and then one day, it changed. I recall my wife telling me to wear sunblock on numerous occasions, but I am a doctor, so I could never get cancer.Breast cancer, Cancer, God, Lymph node, Prayer, Religion and Spirituality, Sentinel lymph node, Surgery
The New England Journal Of Medicine recently published a paper demonstrating that people who eat nuts regularly, live longer. So, should we all eat nuts? Yes. Will we live longer? Maybe. People who ate nuts were less likely to die from cancer, heart disease and stroke. But nut eaters were also more likely to be lean, to eat fruits and vegetables, to exercise daily and to not smoke. Maybe the nuts were only partially responsible for the longer life. It’s hard to know.Cancer, New England Journal Of Medicine, Nutrition, Nuts
Today, we are celebrating one hundred years of the American Cancer Society, a society created for the sole purpose of bringing public awareness to the scourge of cancer. One hundred years later, the American Cancer Society has helped to save over 14,000,000 lives, has galvanized millions of Americans to fight cancer and has spent over $3.6 Billion dollars on research. 47 scientists, whose careers and research have been funded in part by the American Cancer Society have won Nobel Prizes. Many of us, myself included, are able to be here today because of the dedication and hard work by the people who make up the American Cancer Society.American Cancer Society, Cancer, Cancer research, Mary Lasker, National Cancer Institute, Nobel Prize, United States, World War II
