Blood Cancer – acute – HOW it HAPPENS ? [Video]

In acute leukemia “Blood cancer” (ALL & AML), the abnormal blood cells are immature blood cells (blasts). – They can’t carry out their normal functions, and they multiply rapidly, so the disease worsens quickly. – “Acute” means that leukemia can progress quickly, and if not treated, would probably be fatal within a few months.

Toby Keith reveals cancer diagnosis [Video]

Country star Toby Keith revealed on Sunday that he has been battling cancer for several months. Keith said in a statement posted online that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall and has spent the last six months receiving chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. “So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax. I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait,” Keith wrote. According to his official website, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member had been scheduled to perform two concerts next week in Illinois and Grand Rapids, Michigan. He also had a handful of concerts scheduled from mid-July to early August. The Ohio State Fair, where Keith had been scheduled to perform on July 28, confirmed that the show had been canceled and ticket holders would be receiving refunds. “Our hearts go out to Toby Keith as he courageously battles cancer,” the Ohio State Fair tweeted. The “Red Solo Cup” singer had recently performed over Memorial Day weekend at the Heroes Honor Festival at Daytona International Speedway. Throughout his career, Keith has been an advocate for those battling cancer. Back in 2006, he started the Toby Keith Foundation to help kids diagnosed with cancer throughout Oklahoma. In 2014, the foundation opened the “OK Kids Korral,” which offers pediatric cancer patients and their families a place to stay while receiving treatment at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center.Just weeks before revealing his own cancer diagnosis, the “Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic” raised more than $1.38 million for OK Kids Korral.#TobyKeith #countrymusician #stomachcancer

New Cancer treatment with 100% Success | Cancer Treatment latest update | Dostarlimab| Rectal cancer [Video]

New Cancer treatment with 100% Success | Cancer Treatment latest update | Dostarlimab| Rectal cancer | Cancer drug trial |’Tumors just vanished’: Cancer patients now in remission after drug trialA recent drug tested for colorectal cancer has shown 100% success rate in clinical trials.According to a recent article published on NEJM (New England Journal of Medicine) a monoclonal antibody drug Dostarlimab has successfully cured 12 patients with rectal adenocarcinoma.The medication given, called dostarlimab is sold under the brand name Jemperli, is an immunotherapy drug used in the treatment of endometrial cancer, but this was the first clinical investigation of whether it was also effective against rectal cancer tumors.The recent study was conducted on a special variant of rectal cancer with genetic mutations called mismatched repair deficiency.Patients with such tumors tend to be less responsive to chemotherapy and radiation treatments, which increases the need for surgical removal of their tumors.Generally, patients with these kinds of rectal tumors are expect to undergo chemotherapy and radiation therapy prior to surgical removal of the cancer. Unfortunately, for many patients this gamut of treatments comes with long-lasting consequences that can last for the rest of their life.Surprisingly all 12 patients have completed treatment with dostarlimab and have undergone at least 6 months of follow-up. All 12 patients had a clinical complete response, with no evidence of tumor on MRI, PET scan, endoscopic evaluation, digital rectal examination, or biopsy.This was just a phase 2 trial of this drug which was conducted on a very small group of patients. A Longer follow-up is needed to assess the duration of response and the ultimate success rate.Birmingham doctor optimistic about new trial that clears cancer cellsMassive Breakthrough As Cancer Vanishes For All Patients In Drug Trial#cancertreatment #cancer #dostarlimab

A Breast Expose’ The Breast Kept Secret [Video]

Are Mammograms a Scam? You decide. In this award winning documentary surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, scientists, advocates…warn women of the truth that is kept from them. A truth that can cause grave harm, and even death. Many studies conclude the risks mammograms pose far outweigh the benefits and that mammograms have not decreased the ultimate mortality rate, not even by 1%, and 33% to over 60% of women are being over-diagnosed and over-treated. When considering a higher standard for our daughters, is it time to reexamine our current disempowering Breast Cancer Awareness paradigm and implement empowerment with Breast Health Awareness strategies? Question the motives of some in the current Breast Cancer “Industry”? Mammography radiation can cause cancer, compression can spread cancer if present, 3D mammograms are CT scans (utilizing more radiation) and MRI utilizes toxic contrast agents. Are Breast Thermograms (Infrared Scans), self-Breast Exams, clinical breast exams, ultrasounds and/or Blood Tests better options? I hope you will demand full transparency for informed consent and easy access to all of your options, so you have the opportunity to make educated decisions about your health and for the health of your daughters.Interviewed doctors and experts: Joseph Mercola, Ben Johnson, David Marquis, Veronique Desaulniers, Carolyn Dean, Julie Taguchi, Judy Dean, Duncan Turner, Christine Horner, Phil Getson, G. Edward Griffin, Jonathan Emord, Esq., Gaea Powell, etc.It is your protected legal right to select which optimal whole health strategies and/or breast health imaging option(s) that serve your unique needs. Be aware of all the risks vs. benefits before you give consent. Do not blinding follow any doctor’s advice, as most of your decisions and their actions may not be reversible and can be life altering. MOST IMPORTANTLY, do not make rushed fear-based decisions, take your time!! Do your own research, honor critical thinking and common sense. Doctors are “practicing” medicine on you so “record/take electronic notes” of all your medical appointments.This film does not offer any claim of a cure for any disease. It is for educational purposes for empowerment. Be well!
