DVD OUT NOW http://www.lifebeforedeath.com "Cancer Pain" Short Film 9 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing effect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world. In this Short Film we discover that cancer is the most feared disease and the problem of cancer pain is an escalating problem worldwide. "Studies in a number of countries have shown when you ask people what disease worries them most if they thought they had it, cancer is streets ahead of anything else," reports Professor David Hill (Australia). Over 12 million people are likely to be diagnosed with cancer this year alone and 7 million will die of the disease. Cancer kills more people than AIDS and tuberculosis combined. "There are at least 5 million people who die of cancer each year with untreated pain," states Dr Kathleen Foley (USA). "We think this is an underestimate of pain in the world because there are 12 million survivors of cancer, people living with cancer, and we know about a third of them experience pain." Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala) agrees that cancer is indeed painful. "In the situation of advanced illnesses, people need to be able to die in peace." Breast cancer patient Carmen (Australia) reflects that she doesn't fear death however she did fear the essential medications designed to treat her cancer pain. "I had a lot of pain on every level, whether it was physical or emotional." Dr Mark Boughey (Australia) of Caritas Christi Hospice in Melbourne explains, "When Carmen got here pain was the big issue... She had that really problematic neuropathic pain so you couldn't even touch her skin without her screaming and being distressed." "This problem is very much with us, it's a global problem, but also there are things we can do to bring the escalating problem of cancer under control," Professor David Hill. Carmen reflects that professional treatment of her pain brought back her sanity and quality of life. "I'm very blessed to have had this opportunity ... I've had really good care." Featuring Professor David Hill (Australia), Dr Kathleen Foley (USA), Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala), Dr Mark Boughey (Australia), Carmen (Australia). LIFE Before Death will include 50 short films themed around pain control and end of life issues, releasing one a week for a year from May 2011. A feature film was released in early 2012 and is available at http://www.lifebeforedeath.com The project is presented by the Lien Foundation and produced by Moonshine Movies.

(5 Jun 2017) LEADIN: Cancer patients are being urged to speak out about their symptoms after a study showing it can improve their chances of survival. Doctors studied a group of patients who were given home computers so they could report symptoms such as nausea and fatigue more quickly and they discovered patients improved their survival rate by almost half a year, outperforming some new cancer drugs. STORYLINE: If you're being treated for cancer, speak up about your symptoms. A study shows that patients using home computers to report problems like nausea and fatigue improved their survival rate by almost half a year. The online tool was intended as a quick and easy way for people to regularly report symptoms rather than trying to call their doctors, or waiting until their next appointment. Doctors hoped the questionaire would improve the patient's quality of life, but it also showed an improved survival rate. Dr. Ethan Basch is a researcher at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He explains: "So, in this study, we used a very simple online tool. This was an electronic questionnaire, through a web platform. And patients could self-report twelve very common and bothersome symptoms, using this platform, either from home, between visits, or when they came into the office, sitting in the waiting room before they saw their doctor and nurse." Basch and his colleagues were stunned by the results. He says: "So what we found was that was 31 percent of patients had improved quality of life, at six months, when they were using this symptom self-reporting tool, compared to standard care. We found that there was a 7 percent reduction in visits to the emergency room and we found that there was a two-month prolongation in how long people could tolerate receiving chemotherapy." The study was featured at the cancer group's annual meeting in Chicago on Sunday. Earlier studies suggest doctors miss about half of patients' symptoms. Sometimes patients just put up with a problem until their next exam. The study tested whether the online tool could catch symptoms sooner. It involved 766 people being treated for various types of advanced cancers at Sloan Kettering. Some were given usual care and the rest, the online symptom tool. Patients were aged up to ninety-one years old and although 22 percent of them had didn't have a high school education, using the computer proved easy. The online group was asked to report symptoms at least once a week and sooner if they had a problem. They were given a list of common problems such as appetite loss, constipation, cough, diarrhoea, shortness of breath, fatigue, hot flashes, nausea or pain. Doctors saw these reports at office visits, and nurses received email alerts when patients reported severe or worsening symptoms. Basch says: "So if we have a tool that can help us to better control people's symptoms and side effects, often times that means that we can continue chemotherapy for a longer period of time. And in this context, given that many of these chemotherapies are life-prolonging, this can potentially have an impact on people's longevity." During the study nurses responded immediately as much as eighty percent of the time. Six months later the patients in the study group reported their health-related quality of life had improved, they made fewer trips to an emergency room and were able to stay on chemotherapy up to two months longer on average. Median survival in the online group was 31 months versus 26 months for the others. In New York colon cancer patient James Sylvester is using a version of the one tested in the study to report his symptoms to his doctors at Sloan Kettering.

Recognizing that this also a scary time in patients’ lives, Southlake’s Dr. Bimpe Ayeni is offering a less invasive option for those who are weighing their options when it comes to breast cancer reconstruction. Dr. Ayeni identified a need to help breast cancer patients better understand that there are less invasive options. In fact, Dr. Ayeni is creating the ultimate patient experience at Southlake as she has learned to perform a less invasive surgical procedure for patients, one with wait times of up to five months at downtown hospitals. She performed the first DIEP flap procedure at Southlake one year ago and in honour of breast cancer awareness month we are proud to share a video where Dr. Ayeni explains how this procedure is providing phenomenal outcomes for patients.

Before Chris Ellis, 35, came to Mayo Clinic for a second opinion, he was diagnosed with advanced thyroid cancer. The cancer was so severe and tangled around critical structures that previous surgeons didn’t think they could remove all the cancer. And if they tried, they didn’t think he would have much of a quality of life afterward. Before coming to Mayo, Chris was facing hospice. Chris says he didn’t know what to expect when he came to Mayo but became optimistic after meeting Dr. Michael Hinni and his team at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Not only did they remove his cancer, they did so while maintaining his quality of life. Chris was able to eat normally days after his procedure. He was able to speak and enjoy all the things we expect as part of a normal quality of life. Now some 8 months out from his surgery, Chris’ life is returning to normal and he recently went back to work.

Palliative care improves quality of life for adults, children and families facing serious illness like cancer by focusing on relief from pain, stress and other symptoms. It is appropriate at any age and any stage and can be provided alongside curative treatment. Palliative care is delivered by doctors, nurses, and other professionals who work together in a team-based and person-centered approach that identifies patient and family needs, explains treatment options, and gives people a voice in realizing their treatment goals. To save lives and prevent suffering, the American Cancer Society is collaboratively advancing a coordinated agenda of quality of life and survivorship activities promoting palliative care awareness and delivery of integrated palliative care services for all seriously ill adults and children in all care settings.

A new study has found that for some brain cancer patients, pinpoint radiation of tumors, known as stereotactic radiosurgery, appears to do less damage to mental abilities than whole brain radiation. Researchers say neither technique cures cancer that has spread to the brain, but both temporarily stop tumors from growing and equally extend survival. Stereotactic radiosurgery is nonsurgical radiation that precisely targets tumor areas. According to UPI, the study found that when just a few lesions exist, this directed type of radiation appears to provide a better quality of life by not altering short-term memory and thinking skills. Dr. Jonathan Knisely is chief of the radiosurgery and stereotactic program at Northwell Health in New Hyde Park, N.Y. He explained that stereotactic radiosurgery is directed only at the visible metastases. Knisely said, "This study confirms that when choosing between the competing strategies the best choice is radiosurgery--the treatment that does not give any significant radiation dose to normal brain cells." http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/07/26/Some-brain-cancer-patients-have-radiation-options/9101469576149/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

None of those plans included breast cancer. Nora Jaskowiak, MD, discovered that Orr had ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), an early-stage cancer usually limited to the breast duct. But Orr's breast cancer would be anything but limited. In fact, it would threaten her life again and again for the next five years. Eloise Orr looked to Medical Center physicians to tailor a cancer treatment regimen that would not interfere with her life plans.

Head and neck cancers are fairly treatable, but in removing tumors patients often faced devastating effects. Losing part of their jaw or tongue, for example. The trend in surgical oncology is to offer more palpable procedures. “After you take the cancer out, you have to be able to put them back together if you will. A big goal of ours is to give our patients a reasonable quality of life afterwards,” says Dr. Tony Anfuso, who is a surgical head and neck oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. A specialist in head and neck cancer surgery, Dr. Tony Anfuso is offering advanced techniques to patients in Southwest Florida; including free flap reconstruction. “That’s where you take either some soft tissue from the arm or the thigh or you can take bone from the leg and reconstruct a mandible. And you use that tissue to reconstruct their tissues of the head and neck,” says Dr. Anfuso. Building on better surgical options, today’s oral cancer patients face a better future. The newly relocated tissue is altered to look and perform as closely as possible to the original: decreasing disfigurement and boosting quality of life, a far different outlook than in years past. “If you go back, say 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pinpointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill, a speech pathologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Many patients were left speechless or unable to eat or drink without a feeding tube; consequences which are seen less frequently now. “We’re still treating their swallowing deficits. They just had greater deficits,” says Brill. Removing cancer and a major side effect, free flap reconstruction is changing the landscape. “The chances of this flap surviving is higher today than it’s ever been and we can do it in a shorter amount of time. That allows us to do bigger surgeries, and tackle bigger cancers,” says Dr. Anfuso. Making life after cancer much easier to swallow.

Claire Berggren demonstrates the importance of holistic cancer treatment as she narrates her twin brother’s story of survival and struggle as a cancer patient. She stresses treating the entire patient, mind, body and soul. Claire Berggren is a senior at Singapore American School. She saw a different side of life when her twin brother was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma cancer as a freshman; Claire knows the Singaporean hospital system from personal experience as she stood by her brother during his treatments for eighteen months until complications claimed his life. Her exposure to the resiliency of cancer patients, as well as the complex relationship between patient and doctor, cultivates her passion for research in the medical spectrum of integrative cancer care to help patients cope with distress and increase their quality of life. She will be pursuing her academic interests within the field of healthcare research and psychology in university next year. Claire’s passion for enabling cancer patients continues on in supporting the Love, Nils annual toy drive for pediatric cancer patients that she and her family created at National University Hospital Singapore.

Short Film 5 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing effect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world. In this Short Film we discover the technical definition of pain and the impact it can have on a person's total well being through its deterioration of an individual's autonomy. Illustrating the magnitude of its influence, we hear doctors reflecting on patient's testimony saying they would do anything to be relieved of their pain. "Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage," explains Professor Michael Cousins (Australia). He goes further to discuss the shortcomings in the treatment of pain. Mary Callaway (USA) underscores the importance of young doctors believing patients' pain experiences. "The patient says he's in pain, the patient's in pain, and then you need to figure out how to measure it, and we know how to measure it, and track it over time." Dr Jim Cleary (Australia) and Liliana De Lima (Colombia) reiterate the deeply subjective nature of pain. Cancer patients Bob (Australia) and Bernard (Singapore) describe the debilitating impact that pain has had on their quality of life. Sickle cell patient Teena (USA) goes further by explaining how she scores her pain and when she knows her threshold has been reached.

We don’t think about palliative care until someone that we love needs it. No-one likes to think about their own mortality and it is even harder to imagine someone close to us suffering. That said, there are many reasons to talk about death, even if we are not yet directly impacted by it. Why is the topic of palliative care important?

A procedure is changing the way patients with liver cancer receive treatment, prolonging their life and eliminating the side effects from chemotherapy. Dr. Mark Bloomston, a surgical oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Health, says a hockey puck shaped device is improving the quality of life for patients with liver cancer. “What this is, is an implantable device that goes into the skin with a long tube that goes into the artery that feeds the liver. The purpose of that is to be able to trickle very high doses of chemotherapy directly to the tumors in the liver without many side effects of chemotherapy going throughout the body.” The pump delivers 400 times the dose of chemotherapy directly to the liver, leaving the patient with no side effects. “Nationwide there’s not a lot of places placing these pumps. Nobody else in the state of Florida is doing them currently. It is something fairly new to the area to provide more options,” said Dr. Bloomston. The pump is the size of a hockey puck that sits just beneath the skin near the abdomen and pumps chemotherapy into the liver every two weeks. “Most commonly we use it for patients who have had colon and rectal cancers that have spread to the liver. That’s the most common scenario. It’s the most common organ to have cancer spread to,” said Dr. Bloomston. In addition to the pump, patients may have part of their liver removed to minimize the cancer from coming back. “The reality is these patients are living a long time and they get tired of being on chemotherapy, they want a break. So if they have disease confined to the liver, this provides another step for them to maybe get off chemotherapy altogether for a period of time,” said Dr. Bloomston. While it’s not a cure, it offers patients another option of treatment to help prolong their survival rate.
