Published by on January 13, 2021 | Share your thoughts

What’s one super simple thing you can do every day to feel better? The answer is steeping in your favorite mug… Green tea! Yes, that’s right. Drinking green tea does so much goodness for your body, like…controlling certain genes in cancers. 🧬 How?  Here’s what our cancer expert, Alex Rolland, has to say about green tea…Watch here ⬇️ Green tea has an active ingredient called ECGC (aka ‘epigallocatechin gallate’…phew, what a mouthful!). ECGC is pretty powerful. 👊 In fact, it’s capable of: ✅ Binding to & activating control regions of certain tumor suppressors ✅ Reducing angiogenesis (as in, when tumors recruit your blood vessels for their own malicious intent.)  But… All green teas are not created equal. Here’s a handy reference chart to see which ones...

Emotional Support for Cancer Patients: A Simple Way to Get More!

Published by on December 30, 2020 | Share your thoughts

Susan will never forget the day when she was recovering from breast cancer surgery in the hospital. (Who is Susan, you ask? That’s psychologist Susan Silk – and through her experience with breast cancer, she’s learned a LOT…not just about cancer, but about the dos and don’ts of emotional support for cancer patients.) But back to that time in the hospital… Understandably, Susan didn’t feel like having any visitors that day. She was exhausted and just wanted to be alone to rest and recharge. So when a colleague unexpectedly came to visit her, Susan explained to him how she felt. Guess what he said to Susan? “Well, this isn’t about you!”  Hmm… I think you’ll probably agree that this is not the best way he...

Cancer Patient Advocacy: How to Be the Squeaky Wheel

Published by on December 16, 2020 | Share your thoughts

“Be the squeaky wheel.” That’s what Annette kept hearing people tell her when she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. She and her husband were ready to do anything.  They wanted to squeak…but as Annette shared: “How are we supposed to be the squeaky wheel when we have no idea what to squeak about?” She’s right. It’s a chicken and egg situation. It’s impossible to advocate for yourself when you don’t even know what to advocate for! You know there are probably way better diagnostics and treatments than you’ve been offered through standard care. But you don’t know what they are… And if even you did, you still don’t know how to ask for them, or whom to ask… So you’re stuck feeling confused about...

Why Cancer Advocacy is SO Crucial for Patients

Published by on December 9, 2020 1 Comment

A little background on cancer advocacy… Did you know that each month, there are over 1,000 new, peer-reviewed, validated studies published in the field of cancer care?   The biggest cancer conference in the world is currently the American Society of Clinical Oncologists’ annual conference (aka ASCO)… It is the ‘Royal Gala’ of the cancer world.  At this one conference alone, 5,600 new research papers on cancer were presented last year.  On top of that massive amount of information, there are an additional 250 cancer conferences worldwide each year – each of them presenting hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of studies. That’s at least 15,000 new studies released each year on cancer care, diagnosis and treatment. (And that’s using the most conservative estimate!) To break it down… ...

A Second Chance for John

Published by on November 11, 2020 | Share your thoughts

John’s wife Nan had been diagnosed with an advanced form of cervical cancer nearly a decade ago. They spent about 5 years trying to fight it through standard care. Nan got surgery, radiation, and many rounds of chemo. She grew worse. They eventually reached out to us when it looked like there was nothing more that could be done for Nan, except for palliative chemo, through standard care. We took a look at her case and immediately sent Nan for genetic testing. Our cancer expert Alex Rolland found several promising treatment options based on results, including immunotherapy. However, due to various factors at the time, John and Nan decided to stick with standard care and continue with the palliative chemo. Nan passed away several months...
