Presented At: Cancer Research & Oncology 2018 Presented By: Benjamin Anderson, MD - Professor of Surgery, Division of General Surgery (Surgical Oncology Section), University of Washington School of Medicine Speaker Biography: Dr. Anderson's is an internationally recognized leader in global cancer control. With joint appointments at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Division of Public Health Sciences and the UW Department of Global Health, Dr. Anderson created in 2002 and continues to chair the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), a unique program to develop "resource-stratified" guidelines for breast cancer early detection, diagnosis, treatment and palliative care in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In 2011 the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) awarded Dr. Anderson their Partners in Progress Award and in 2013 the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC) awarded him their 2013 Inspiration Award, recognizing his dedicated efforts to improve the quality and effectiveness of breast cancer care around the globe. Since 2012, Dr. Anderson has served on the Board of Directors of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). Dr. Anderson now co-chairs the Breast Cancer Initiative 2.5 (BCI2.5), a global campaign to reduce disparities in breast cancer outcomes for 2.5 million women between now and 2025.. Webinar: Breast Cancer as a Global Disease: Are We Up to The Challenge? Webinar Abstract: As the most common female malignancy, breast cancer is the most likely reason that a woman will die of cancer around the world. Breast cancer mortality has dropped in the U.S. by 35% since 1990 due to improved early detection and timely treatment. By contrast, most breast cancer deaths occur in low and middle income countries (LMICs). The Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI) developed resource-stratified guidelines as a framework for breast cancer management in limited resource environments. Pilot studies from Latin America, Asia and sub-Saharan Africa use implementation research methods to demonstrate best practices that improve outcome despite resource constraints. “Phased implementation” is a novel approach to guide strategic program development to save breast cancer lives. Learning Objectives: 1. Understand why breast cancer mortality has dropped in the U.S. by 35% since 1990 2.

Orlando Health and University of Florida Health today announced they have joined forces to establish one of the state's largest, most comprehensive cancer programs. The UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health will expand care and treatment options for patients throughout the region, at a time when statistics show the number of cancer cases in Florida is rising. According to recent studies by the National Cancer Institute, Florida now has the second-largest cancer burden in America, and cancer has surpassed heart disease as the leading cause of death in the Sunshine State. "A need of this magnitude requires an innovative strategy for meeting this growing demand for cancer treatment and care," said Orlando Health Board Chair Dianna Morgan. "By connecting some of the nation's most experienced cancer doctors and leading cancer researchers, we can collaborate to provide the best possible care and the most favorable treatment outcomes for cancer patients." The program officially begins Jan. 31, when Orlando Health's affiliation agreement with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center expires. Orlando patients will continue to receive their cancer care with the same Orlando Health physicians, oncologists, surgeons and staff they have come to know and trust. In addition, patients also will have more options for leading-edge treatment and expanded access to additional specialists, new drugs, clinical trials and other resources. The program also provides greater flexibility by offering care at community medical facilities closer to patients' homes, whether in the Orlando or Gainesville areas. "This is an important new step for cancer treatment in Florida," said UF President Bernie Machen. "By connecting our university's research and treatment expertise with the exceptional health care organization that is Orlando Health, we bolster our capacity to improve patient care and outcomes." Mark Roh, MD will be president of the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health. He is currently president of MD Anderson-Orlando. "The medical staff and faculty in Orlando and Gainesville are excited to be working together to expand cancer treatments and services for our patients. This will revolutionize cancer care for patients throughout Florida," Roh said.

October is "Breast Cancer Awareness month" so I wanted to create a video tribute to the National Football League and it's cheerleaders, players, coaches and officials since the league is doing such a nice job of being involved. The stadiums are nicely marked... with their fields, goal posts and "BC awareness" signage. The PINK cheerleader outfits ie: pink "pom poms", wrist bands, boots, shoes, socks and the players, coaches & officials uniforms... ie:pink gloves, shoes, towels, helmets, hats & shirts with the Breast Cancer pink ribbon logo. *DISEASE INFORMATION* on Breast Cancer... Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year. One in eight women will be affected at some point in their lifetime. An estimated 40,170 women are expected to die from the disease in 2009 alone. Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. If you're worried about developing breast cancer, or if you know someone who has been diagnosed with the disease, one way to deal with your concerns is to get as much information as possible. In this section you'll find important background information about what breast cancer is and how it develops. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that grows in one or both of the breasts. Breast cancer usually develops in the ducts or lobules, also known as the milk-producing areas of the breast. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women (after lung cancer). Although African-American women have a slightly lower incidence of breast cancer after age 40 than Caucasian women, they have a slightly higher incidence rate of breast cancer before age 40. However, African-American women are more likely to die from breast cancer at every age. Breast cancer is much less common in males; by comparison, the disease is about 100 times more common among women. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1,910 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among men in the United States in 2009. Types of breast cancer There are several different types of breast cancer that can be divided into two main categories - noninvasive cancers and invasive cancers. Noninvasive cancer may also be called "carcinoma in situ." Noninvasive breast cancers are confined to the ducts or lobules and they do not spread to surrounding tissues. The two types of noninvasive breast cancers are ductal carcinoma in situ (referred to as DCIS) and lobular carcinoma in situ (referred to as LCIS).

We work together to treat kids affected by sickle cell anemia and sickle cell disease (a group of inherited blood disorders that affect the red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body). Types of sickle cell disease in children are based on specific inherited genetic defects. We treat all types of childhood sickle cell disease, including: sickle cell trait (marked by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one normal hemoglobin A gene which can be passed on; usually causes no symptoms) sickle cell anemia (also called “homozygous sickle cell disease,” the most common and severe form caused by inheriting two hemoglobin S genes from both parents) sickle cell hemoglobin C (a milder form marked by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one hemoglobin C gene, which is also defective) sickle cell beta thalassemia (two types — sickle beta zero and sickle beta plus — range from mild to severe, caused by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one beta thalassemia gene) If we discover any type of sickle cell disease (like sickle cell anemia), our multidisciplinary (collaborative) team plans the most effective treatment personalized to your child’s needs. In addition to an experienced, compassionate nurse coordinator (who provides your child and family support, education and care coordination), Nemours’ pediatric blood disorder teams include: hematologists (blood disorder specialists) pulmonologists (lung specialists) orthopedists (bone specialists) neurologists (specialists in brain and spinal cord disorders) urologists (specialists in urinary and reproductive organs) pathologists (diagnose diseases by examining body tissues, fluids and organs) radiologists (diagnose diseases using medical imaging) geneticists (perform genetic counseling and testing) behavioral health specialists (psychologists and psychiatrists) pain management specialists (anesthesiologists trained in pain management) registered dietitians (nutrition specialists) hematology nurses (registered nurses specializing in childhood blood disorders) Your care team is here to provide your family with ongoing support and follow-up. We always include you in the entire process, because we truly believe in the healing power of families and that you know your child best. To learn more, visit Nemours.org/SickleCell
