Pancreatic Cancer:  A Beautiful Story of Survival
When patients diagnosed with cancer are admitted to the hospital, many times we see them at their lowest. From chemotherapy and radiation treatments to surgeries and diagnostic test. It can be an emotional roller coster for not only the patient but also all of their loved ones… including their medical staff… I remember about 2 months ago, I was feeling down. Normally I’m an extremely upbeat person. However, working on the oncology unit was taking it’s tole on me. I realized, that I was mistakingly focusing on some of the patients who didn’t make it. Unfortunately, many of the patients who recover fully do not make their ways back in the the hospital. I can’t blame, the hospital would not be high on my list also. Recently, I attended a fundraising event with my husband and I heard a beautiful dynamic speaker by the name of Camille. Don’t tell anyone, but I actually cried while she was talking… By the time she finished speaking, I knew I had to ask her to share her story on my channel. I waited for 2 hours to talk with her and after the crowds had died down, she graciously accepted my offer. Spending time with Camille was like taking a breath of fresh air. Imagine walking into someones home for an interview and a bubbly 60 year old greets you with tons of energy, gorgeous hair and a wholesome outlook and love for life. This is who Camlile is, just a loving bundle of joy - I left her house inspired and grateful. I hope you feel the same way after listening to her story. Camille was given one of the worst diagnosis… Had I been reading her chart, I unfortunately would have not spent too much time with it… I have never met anyone that survived Pancreatic Cancer, much less; Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer with metastasis aka METS. The first doctor she went to told her that she that with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer with spots on in her lungs, liver and kidneys; there was nothing they could do and she was to go home and prepare to die. However, one thing that she strongly recommends is to get a second opinion, which is what she did. She went to University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer center. She found a doctor that believed in her and she trusted him. She will be the first to tell you that her story is not the norm and oftentimes told me how it hurts her to know that many others have had the same diagnosis and not the same outcome. However, her main focus is to share that no matter how bad things seem, you can always and MUST always have hope. Thankfully Camille is not alone these days. Thanks to advanced research and better treatment options. The bike ride event that Camille and I speak about in the video is a Fundraising event. Events like these help organizations raise money to continue research and be positioned to deliver specialized treatment options. Each persons cancer is different and events like these help us do a small part to help ensure much needed progress. I hope you decide to join us. Please read bike ride information below and email me with any questions: Caroline@EmpoweRN.com See you soon! xoxo ~Caroline Fundraising Bike Ride Information: Please join Camille and I February , 11th 2017 for the fundraising bike ride. If you click on the link below scroll down to a button that says “Join My Team.” After you click on the button, you will be taken to another page that gives you multiple options on different fundraising activities. Camille and I will be doing the 14 mile bike ride. Don’t worry, it is not a race and as long as you have a decent bike you probably do not have to prepare much for it. At least I didn’t lol. The minimum fundraising donation for the bike ride is $250 - however you can reserve your spot for $150 and raise the rest later if you would like. All proceeds will be donated to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer which is South Florida's leader in cancer diagnosis and provides state-of-the-art treatment as well as follow-up care. They also have an advanced research department, which is vital to discovering better treatment options, which in turn will help us save lives. Here is what I did: I purchased the $150 bike ride fee. Then, I purchased two of the $50 Counting Crows concert tickets. I went last year and it was a lot of fun, so I think it is worth the money anyways. Then, just to start my page I paid an additional $10, this is not necessary though. Since I did this last year I know how much fun it is going to be, so I hope you decide to join Camille and I! https://fundraisers.hakuapp.com/teams/team-hurricanes-hurricane-camille By the way, if you only want to donate… every single dollar helps! No donation is too small. Thank you for watching and thank you Camille for sharing your beautiful energy and message of hope to us all. Happy Holidays, ~Caroline

Stages Of Pancreatic Cancer
Related Videos: Pancreatic Cancer https://youtu.be/pbskOHAXpJg Signs Of Pancreatic Cancer https://youtu.be/Vdp1zb7QKsU Transcript: Stages Of Pancreatic Cancer I learned more than I ever really wanted to about the stages of pancreatic cancer recently when a friend was diagnosed. I did a lot of reading and research when that happened, using only reputable and reliable websites like those on your screen, and I'll share that information in the next minute or so. This video focuses only on the stages of pancreatic cancer. I've produced several other videos on related topics. You'll find links below. Once a diagnosis has been made, the doctor assigns a stage to each patient. Stage I Cancer is confined to the pancreas and can be removed using surgery. Stage II Cancer has spread beyond the pancreas to nearby tissues and organs and may have spread to the lymph nodes. At this stage, surgery may be possible to remove the cancer. Stage III Cancer has spread beyond the pancreas to the major blood vessels around the pancreas and may have spread to the lymph nodes. Surgery may or may not be possible to remove the cancer at this stage. Stage IV. Cancer has spread to distant sites beyond the pancreas, such as the liver, lungs and the lining that surrounds your abdominal organs (peritoneum). Surgery isn't an option at this stage in the disease. Naturally, the earlier the stage, the better the possibility of successful treatment. I hope this video has given you the basics you were looking for. But remember, you should only rely on a medical professional for the most up-to-date information about pancreatic cancer or any other issue related to your health.

Liver Cancer | Thelma's Story
Eight months after undergoing a successful surgery for colon cancer, Delaware resident Thelma Klase, was diagnosed with a large cancerous tumor in her liver, thought to be metastatic colon cancer. After an initial attempt at surgery failed and months of chemotherapy targeting her presumed colon cancer, Thelma and her family sought a second opinion from Matthew Weiss, a liver surgeon and surgical director of the Johns Hopkins Liver and Pancreatic Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinics. Dr. Weiss reassured his new patient that another approach offered good odds for success. He used a portal vein embolization procedure to grow the portion of her liver that was to remain. Then he removed the tumor, which turned out not to be metastatic colon cancer, but a completely different liver cancer. The surgery was successful, allowing Thelma a new lease on life.

Detecting Pancreatic Cancer Earlier
Lustgarten Foundation funded researchers at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have designed a multi-analyte blood test that can detect the presence of pancreatic cancer as part of a panel of eight common cancers (pancreas, ovary, liver, stomach, esophagus, colorectum, lung and breast) as reported in the online edition of Science today. The test utilizes combined assays for genetic alterations and protein biomarkers and has the capacity not only to identify the presence of relatively early cancer, but also to localize the organ of origin of these cancers. “The potential this has for pancreatic cancer is unprecedented,” says Anne Marie Lennon, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Director, Pancreatic Cyst Center of the Ludwig Center at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. “We know that in 80-85 percent of pancreatic cancer cases, it’s detected too late, leaving the patient with few options. Developing a blood screening test for pancreatic cancer has been an urgent goal, because catching the disease early will be the way we get to long-term survival.” To view the multimedia release go to: https://www.multivu.com/players/English/8213751-lustgarten-foundation-pancreatic-cancer-blood-test/

6 Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms You Should Never Ignore
6 Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms You Should Never Ignore When was the last time you thought about your pancreas? Chances are, you rarely give much thought to this glandular organ, which helps your body digest food and convert it into energy. Located behind your stomach, the pancreas produces insulin and regulates your body's hormones that maintain glucose (blood sugar) levels. Pancreatic cancer is overall pretty rare, with 55,440 people in America expected to be diagnosed in 2018. (The most commonly diagnosed cancer is non-melanoma skin cancer, affecting more than 1 million people a year, followed by lung cancer, with more than 200,000 cases diagnosed annually.) But even though it’s an uncommon diagnosis, pancreatic cancer is soon expected to overtake colon cancer as the number-two leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, says Valerie Lee, MD, pancreatic oncologist at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Why? First, because pancreatic cancer is very aggressive. “It has a high likelihood of spread, or metastasis, to other organs in the body," says Neil Woody, MD, oncologist at the Cleveland Clinic. The five-year survival rate is only 8.5 percent. But it may also be because pancreatic cancer is on the rise. Pancreatic cancer has been diagnosed at an increase of .5% a year for more than a decade. Part of that is due to increased detection, Dr. Lee says, but lifestyle factors may be playing a role as well. Increases in diabetes and obesity—two major risk factors for pancreatic cancer—may also be contributing to the rise in pancreatic cancer cases. Pancreatic cancer warning signs. Pancreatic cancer is notoriously difficult to diagnose. Only about 10 percent of pancreatic cancers have a genetic predisposition, and good screenings for the general population have been difficult to establish, says Dr. Woody. “Tests with high likelihood of detecting pancreatic cancer, such as endoscopic ultrasound, are invasive, costly, and may carry risks of complications that outweigh their use as screening tests for the average person,” he explains. What’s more, pancreatic cancer is tough to spot early, and many of the symptoms can be caused by other conditions. Plus, people usually have no symptoms until the cancer has spread to other organs. Still, if you are experiencing any of these warning signs, it’s worth making an appointment with your doctor. 1. New onset of diabetes “When people with no risk factors for diabetes (no family history, good diet, thin body type) develop new onset diabetes, or who have a history of well controlled diabetes suddenly find that it becomes difficult to control, it’s reasonable to evaluate why the pancreas may not be functioning as well," says Dr. Lee. 2. Abdominal pain "The pancreas sits close to a bundle of blood vessels and nerves called the celiac plexus that can cause pain and nerve irritation, says Dr. Lee. But the pain is usually pretty encompassing of your abdomen. "Patients feel pain from the epigastrum (the area just under the sternum) through to their back. Imagine a tire hiked up right under your chest and around your abdomen," says Kim Reiss-Binder, MD, an oncologist specializing in pancreatic cancer at the University of Pennsylvania. 3. Unexplained blood clots "Patients with pancreas cancer are particularly prone to blood clots," says Dr. Lee. While the exact cause is not known, it is believed that cancer cells reduce the proteins the body uses to prevent blood clots. “For people who do not have a reason for the development of a clot—a recent major surgery, trauma (like a car accident), hospitalization, or prolonged period where you are laying still, or a hereditary predisposition to clotting—we recommend making sure you are up to date on your cancer screening and to check in with your doctor about any other symptoms that may help to identify the source of the clotting abnormality," says Dr. Lee. 4. Diarrhea and floating stools 5. Jaundice 6. Unexplained weight loss and change in eating patterns.

Meet researcher Zeshaan Rasheed, MD, PhD of Johns Hopkins University
http://pancan.org/ Dr. Rasheed is the recipient of the 2010 Tempur-Pedic Retailers -- Pancreatic Cancer Action Network -- AACR Pathway to Leadership Grant. His pivotal studies aim to identify and analyze the cancer stem cells (CSC) population within pancreatic tumors. Specifically, Dr. Rasheed's goal is to better understand the origin of the CSC, and to determine whether regular non-CSC cancer cells have the ability to become CSCs in response to particular external stimuli. This project will lay the groundwork for future investigations on targeting these highly aggressive cells within a pancreatic tumor cell population.
