Cancer Survivorship (As a Pessimist) | Luis’ Story (3 of 3) | The Patient Story [Video]

“My message for my fellow cancer tribesmen is this: if you’ve been diagnosed, or you’re having the symptoms, or you’re doing treatment, and you’re doing everything wrong, and emotionally, you’re just shattered and everything’s broken and there’s nothing except this cold wind that blows through you every day from the moment you get up to the moment you fall asleep, that’s OK.You can still survive, and you can still turn it around. Don’t feel bad. It’s all right. Yeah, you’re a lump on the floor. You know what? Lumps on the floor? They have a right to live, too.”Luis is a self-described pessimist. When he was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, he admits he took it pretty badly. As he was going through his R-CHOP and methotrexate chemotherapy, along with all the side effects, he learned how to manage the emotional roller coaster.In this segment, Luis shares how he got through scanxiety, fought the guilt, and honored his journey.In this Series: Our 3-part series with Luis covers everything from how he got diagnosed, to the intense chemotherapy regimen (R-CHOP + methotrexate) and getting through side effects, and living life after a cancer diagnosis – as a pessimist.

Stage 1 Lung Cancer Survivor and Fighting For Others: Dave’s Story | The White Ribbon Project [Video]

Dave Bjork’s experience with lung cancer began in the late 90’s. Thankfully, the cancer was caught early enough to be stage 1, localized, and taken care of by surgery (no chemotherapy). Despite having such a great outcome, Dave struggled with some feelings about whether he could advocate in lung cancer because of what he calls “survivor’s guilt.”While he dove into lung cancer awareness advocacy for years, Dave’s good friends introduced him to The White Ribbon Project that helped Dave realize he belongs at the table as much as anyone else. Now, he’s become one of the most familiar faces in the advocacy community. His passion for helping others is clear in his story, the last of our 2021 lung cancer awareness month story spotlight series on The White Ribbon Project.In this Series: The White Ribbon Project is a grassroots organization powered by lung cancer patients, caregivers, healthcare providers, researchers – anyone who wants to help raise lung cancer awareness. The group creates and distributes wooden white ribbons as a symbol of its powerful movement to shift the narrative on lung cancer and break stigmas.The Patient Story is proud to share stories of some of these incredible people. From stage 1 to stage 4, those with and without histories of smoking, to caregivers and doctors, their mission is clear: Let’s lead with love and change the lung cancer story.Full story → https://www.thepatientstory.com/cancers/lung-cancer/the-white-ribbon-project/dave-bjork-2Story series → https://www.thepatientstory.com/cancers/lung/the-white-ribbon-project-stories/The interview has only been edited for clarity.Join Our Community:Website : https://www.thepatientstory.com/Facebook: @ThePatientStoryInstagram: @ThePatientStoryTwitter: @patient_story______________________________#thewhiteribbonproject #thepatientstory #lungcancer #lungcancerawareness #LCAM #LCSM#stage4 #cancerawareness #americanlungasociation #lungevity #go2foundation

From Nurse, to Caregiver, to Stage 4 Cancer Patient: Anne’s Story | The White Ribbon Project [Video]

Anne LaPorte spent decades as a nurse, following in her own mother’s footsteps, drawn to tending to other people.

This time, her daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin lymphoma. Thankfully, she successfully underwent treatment. But as her daughter recovered, Anne was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, herself!

6 TIPS for PREVENTION OF CANCER| Can cancer be prevented-How?-Dr.Mangesh P Kamath | Doctors’ Circle [Video]

Dr. Mangesh P Kamath | Appointment booking no: 9900613143Website: drmangeshkamathcancercare.comSenior Consultant & Medical Director | Medical and HematoOncologist, BMT Physician, Healius Cancer & Hematology Clinic, Banashankari Stage II, BengaluruThis is very commonly asked question, if cancer is preventable. My answer to the question is yes. Absolutely it is preventable but we all know that not all things are practical, the meaning of that is for cancer to be prevented you have to follow a lot of good habits, good lifestyle. Stay away for certain poisonous substances like alcohol, tobacco, red meat and also live in a very clean environment, clean air, clear water and so all. Is this really practical? Not really. We are all living in cities where there is a lot of pollution and a lot of food we eat is laden with pesticides and insecticides. Also there are a lot of carcinogenic substances. So the way we can prevent cancer is to avoid all the cancer causing poisonous substances and to avoid a lot of poisonous substances like Hepatitis A., hepatitis B etc. A very common cancer in India is cervix cancer, we have a huge burden of cervix cancer, try he human papilloma virus causing cervix cancer or cancer of the uterus, so it can be prevented by the vaccination of the HPV before the onset of sexual activity by a female. It is a preventable cancer, but not actually this cancer is preventable. Hepatitis B virus is a type of cancer that prevents cancer. Many patients come to us saying I have lung cancer but is not a smoker. Many people are passive smokers. So there are bladder cancers, lung cancer, blood cancer occurring in farmers who are using deadly insecticides and pesticides. #expertskisuno#cancerprevention#Preventcancer#HPV#cervixcancer#humanpapillomavirus #HormonalTherapy#TargetedTherapy#Immunotherapy#Chemotherapy#bloodcancer#MultipleMyeloma#cancercure#cancersurvival
