There are many factors that can help determine if undergoing a double mastectomy is the right option. Medical Oncologist Christopher Marsh says unless you have high risk factors and have tested positively for certain genetic mutations -- as was the case for Angelina Jolie -- then a double mastectomy is not a good idea. For one woman, Jenise Kaliszewski, a cancer patient who had cancer in one breast but chose to get both breasts removed, she says it was the greatest decision she's ever made. Doctor Marsh says the best way to prevent yourself from getting cancer is to get your regular screenings, Mammograms, breast exams, pap smears and colonoscopies.

The LCL Sub is the former Louisville & Nashville Railroad (L&N) "Short Line", originally the Louisville, Cincinnati & Lexington Railroad. On the (default) north camera can be seen the signal at the south end of La Grange siding, at milepost 27.0, and the siding is 8,330 feet in length (the north end of the siding is at milepost 28.8). In regards to that signal and approaching northbound trains, if the train is lined into the siding the signal with have a red-over-lunar (white) aspect, and if it's lined through on the main track the signal with display either a green-over-red or yellow (amber)-over-red aspect. The town gets 20-25+ CSX freight trains daily. It’s a designated quiet zone, but the crew can use the horns at their discretion. The speed limit for trains as they enter the street-running portion is 10 miles per hour (MPH), until the engines have cleared said street-running, at which point they are allowed to increase their speed to 20 MPH. There is no Amtrak service here. The last regularly scheduled passenger train on this line was the L&N's "Pan-American" in 1971. There is an ATCS layout available, but there is no server (data) coverage available, as CSX has transitioned away from radio code line (RCL) for switch-and-signal control, to satellite for switch-and-signal, with cellular/telephony backups. RCL is essential for ATCS data availability. There are 2 cameras available. The default camera faces north, and the other camera faces south.

His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski's gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970's called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and has been given permission by the FDA to begin the final phase of FDA testing--randomized controlled clinical trials. When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough. Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose these medicines instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery - as well as systematic (non-anecdotal) FDA-supervised clinical trial data comparing Antineoplastons to other available treatments—which is published within the peer-reviewed medical literature. One form of cancer - diffuse, intrinsic, childhood brainstem glioma has never before been cured in any scientifically controlled clinical trial in the history of medicine. Antineoplastons hold the first cures in history - dozens of them. [ Read completely Phase 2 clinical trial reports and other pee-reviewed data on Antineoplastons: http://burzynskimovie.com/index.php/component/content/article/166 ] This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons. Dr. Burzynski resides and practices medicine in Houston, Texas. He was able to initially produce and administer his discovery without FDA-approval from 1977-1995 because the state of Texas at this time did not require that Texas physicians be required to adhere to Federal law in this situation. This law has since been changed. As with anything that changes current-day paradigms, Burzynski's ability to successfully treat incurable cancer with such consistency has baffled the industry. Ironically, this fact had prompted numerous investigations by the Texas Medical Board, who relentlessly took Dr. Burzynski as high as the state supreme court in their failed attempt to halt his practices. Likewise, the Food and Drug Administration engaged in four Federal Grand Juries spanning over a decade attempting to indict Dr. Burzynski, all of which ended in no finding of fault on his behalf. Finally, Dr. Burzynski was indicted in their 5th Grand Jury in 1995, resulting in two federal trials and two sets of jurors finding him not guilty of any wrongdoing. If convicted, Dr. Burzynski would have faced a maximum of 290 years in a federal prison and $18.5 million in fines. However, what was revealed a few years after Dr. Burzynski won his freedom, helps to paint a more coherent picture regarding the true motivation of the United States government's relentless persecution of Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D. Note: When Antineoplastons are approved for public use, it will allow a single scientist to hold an exclusive right to manufacture and sell these medicines on the open market—potentially leaving the pharmaceutical industry absent in profiting from the most effective gene-targeted cancer treatment the world has ever seen.

Every morning Emroy Tate comes to work with a smile, and every evening he goes home with a smile. “Tate is always smiling,” says Alonzo Gonzalez, facilities properties director, Facilities Management Patient Care and Prevention Facilities Building Care and Operations. “People can learn from his attitude.” With 33 years of service, it’s his co-workers and our patients who keep him energized about his job. “Improving our patients’ experiences is the driving force behind every decision he makes on the job,” says Frances Snipes, program manager, Volunteer Services. “He assists our patients, caregivers and staff the same way that he’d help his own family and friends: thoughtfully and thoroughly.” For his strong work ethic, caring nature and positive attitude, Tate is receiving the September Heart of MD Anderson Outstanding Employee Award. As a floor technician, Tate is responsible for making sure our floors stay clean. But when his team is short-staffed, he also helps with other housekeeping duties, like emptying the trash. “We’re all here to work together, and that’s what I’m here for,” Tate says. Even though most of his work is done behind the scenes or after hours, what he accomplishes makes a difference to patients. “A clean facility is a safe facility, and that translates into a great experience for our patients and their families,” says co-worker Terri Jason, a work control coordinator. With more than three decades working in the same department, Tate knows MD Anderson and facilities work like the back of his hand. He finds ways to share his knowledge with others and often helps train new staff. His reason for doing so is simple. “Others passed it down to me, and now I pass it on,” he says. Tate is also involved in setting up events and displays in public spaces, like The Park. If you’ve ever participated in a blood drive or browsed a jewelry sale in the Main Building, you’ve seen Tate’s work. He also often works alongside Quinn Franklin, child life program manager, and her co-workers in Pediatrics and Volunteer Services to create experiences for our youngest patients and their families. Tate helps set up annual holiday events, like the Gingerbread House, Pediatric Fall Festival, and special events like Camp For All 2U and the Teddy Bear Clinic. “He’s always asking how he can help you and does more than you ask for,” Franklin says. “He reminds me of why we’re here and that it’s all about service to others,” says Bob Saladino, a facilities customer advocate. For Tate, it’s all about our patients. “Sometimes they’re not feeling well, so if I can help brighten their day or occupy their time for a minute, that makes me feel good,” he says with a smile. http://www.mdanderson.org/

http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org Shannon Brooks, Brantley's mom: "There are no words to describe the joy and the happiness of bringing a child into the world. Especially one as caring and as sweet as Brantley. There’s just nothing else like it." Brantley Brooks entered the world a happy and healthy baby. At just 3 months old, after a week of having what was thought to be a cold, Brantley was admitted to the hospital near his home in Vermont. Blood work sent to Cincinnati Children’s confirmed that Brantley had Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), a life-threatening immunodeficiency. Kyler Brooks, Brantley's dad: "It was definitely a whirlwind of having a child and finding out 3 months later that he had a life-threatening disease that we knew nothing about." Dr. Michael Jordan: "HLH is a disorder of immune regulation when the immune system turns on, it doesn’t really quite know how to turn off. And when they don’t turn off, it makes you extremely sick, and can be fatal if you don’t get immunosuppressive medication." Immediately after being diagnosed, Brantley was air-lifted to Cincinnati Children’s, an HLH center of excellence. Mom: "They said the term 'bone marrow transplant,' and neither of us exactly knew what that entailed, just that it was going to be a very long and hard road ahead of us." Brantley’s road to transplant began with participating in a clinical trial at Cincinnati Children’s that combined chemotherapy and immunosuppressive antibodies as a form of therapy to suppress his immune system. Dr. Jordan: "You need therapy to sort of turn off the overactive immune system that sort of is revving endlessly. A neutron bomb for the immune system. Really just clear the decks in order to turn off the HLH to make it safe to even think about getting to transplant." Dr. Rebecca Marsh: "It’s essentially like if you’re clearing out space for a garden in your yard. You give the chemotherapy to kill what’s already growing there so that you have a place to plant either the new seeds or the new stem cells from your bone marrow donor." Fortunately, Brantley didn’t wait long for a donor match to be made, and received his first bone marrow transplant at just 5 months old. Mom: "Essentially, his entire life was in the hospital. So to him, that was his normal. He handled it very well. The second time around, he was a little bit older. He was 3 when he relapsed in 2015." Dr. Jordan: "The transplants don’t always stick as well as you’d hope. If over time, if the recipient’s marrow tends to outgrow the donor’s bone marrow, then you can get into trouble." Dr. Mash: "You actually become prone to developing HLH again. And so that was unfortunately what happened to Brantley. He was actually home and he actually developed some symptoms that his brain was having some inflammation." Mom: "Brantley started complaining of headaches. He kind of began to lose his balance a little bit. He was not himself." Dr. Marsh: "His doctors there recognized very quickly that that might be HLH coming back in his brain. And that was indeed the case, and so at that point he came back to have a second transplant." Brantley’s previous donor, Don, was able to give of himself yet again so that Brantley could live. Mom: "What do you say to the person that has saved your child’s life three times? I mean, a thank you just doesn’t do it, you know what I mean? It’s because of him that we get to watch our son grow up." Thanks to Brantley's donor, his care team at home and at Cincinnati Children's, Brantley's future looks bright. Dr. Marsh: "I will say he’s a hoot. He’s just kind of a joker, and he’s a cute adorable kid. He’s got definitely a little personality to him." Dad: "Brantley's taught us the value of life. Everything we believe in, the strength we have, it's because of this kid right here. He’s really our rock." Dr. Marsh: "I have no worries about his future. I think he’s in very good hands. He’s got wonderful parents, I think he’s going to have a good life." Mom: "He’s already defied the odds so many times. That as an adult, he’s going to be capable of anything."
