How to Get the Right Cancer Treatment NOW

October 27, 2021 10:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

How can you access the exact right cancer treatment for your form of cancer? That’s what I’m about to share with you. But first… Allow me to vent, just for a moment. I’m tired of cancer patients coming to us too late. I’m tired of hearing people say, “we wished we’d known about you sooner.” (If you want to avoid this, book a 30-min free call with me now.) Given the amazing success that patients have with our Precision Oncology Program when they finally get the right cancer treatment – and the consequences that cancer patients experience when they don’t know this stuff – it just breaks my heart when folks come to us too late. And…I get it.  You want to trust that your...

What is Precision Oncology…and When Should You Start Using It?

October 20, 2021 10:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

What is Precision Oncology? And when should you start using it in your cancer care? This is a question I get asked a LOT. Many folks wait until things go from bad to worse to start looking for newer, more effective, evidence-based cancer care options – also known as Precision Oncology. In fact, you may even be asking yourself… What the heck does Michelle actually mean by “Precision Oncology”? In a nutshell, this is what we’re referring to when we talk about Precision Oncology: 🔹 Comprehensive genetic testing: As in, a full panel that looks at at a minimum of 350 genes and, ideally, over 500. And don’t just take the raw test data that some outdated computer program generated for your doctor! If you’re...

Is Cancer Hereditary? Find Out if Cancer Runs in Your Family

October 6, 2021 8:26 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Is cancer hereditary? And, why does cancer happen in younger people?  Those two questions happen to be connected… The general rule of thumb is: If someone develops cancer under the age of 50, there’s a very high chance that it’s caused by cancer-related inherited mutations. Meaning, the person was born with certain mutations and it was really just a matter of time before they developed into cancer.  (Though, if you have cancer-causing inherited mutations, it’s not 100% certain that you will develop cancer at any point in your life. It ultimately comes down to chance and other lifestyle factors.) And…this is why we offer inherited mutation testing! You may or may not know this, but Cancer Treatment Options and Management (CTOAM) also has a sister...

How to Reduce Your Cancer Risk as You Age

September 29, 2021 10:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Is it possible to reduce cancer risk as you get older? You’ve probably noticed that older folks are more affected by cancer than younger people. Of course, there are many exceptions – you may even be one of them, or perhaps you know someone who developed cancer at younger age. I meet people each day who are in their 30s or 40s and, despite being the picture of health, find themselves faced with cancer. In next week’s email, I’ll reveal why and how that occurs…and what you can do about it! But first, let’s unpack this all-too-common question: Why are older people more prone to cancer? CTOAM’s cancer expert & research scientist, Alex Rolland, made a video for you to explain just that. How to...

Cancer Facts vs. Fiction: How Can You Tell the Difference?

September 22, 2021 10:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

How can you determine what are cancer facts versus false claims? This is one of the fundamental questions that I try to help folks answer. So let’s dive right in with a simple example… And one that starts with a confession 🙂 I must admit: I love a nice, cold diet Pepsi every now and again! And if you’re anything like me, you might’ve wondered from time to time… Do artificial sweeteners cause cancer? I’d heard rumors of this here and there but never knew the actual answer. And with the use of sweeteners on the rise, our research scientist and cancer expert, Alex Rolland, made a video to explain more. Take a look as we get to the bottom of this! How to Determine...

How “Heal Mary” Can Help You to Access Clinical Trials

September 8, 2021 10:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Don’t you just love it when you meet someone who’s work inspires you to your core? That’s how I felt when I had the chance to meet Cassandra Hui. Cassandra is the founder of a clinical trial platform called “Heal Mary”. Her personal story is heartbreaking – AND incredibly inspiring… Why did Cassandra start Heal Mary? When Cassandra’s mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, Cassandra did everything she could to find help. It wasn’t long before she was confronted with the giant gap between what standard care in Canada could offer her mother and what was actually available through clinical trials. This fuelled Cassandra – out of her own need and frustration – to start an organization that could help connect cancer patients...
