I Am Not My Breast Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

This is a new book taken from an online Breast Cancer Support Group called First Person Plural. 800 women from 49 states and several other countries participated. The discussions were compiled into a book. The book is described on the cover with the following words: "Women talk openly about love and sex, hair loss and weight gan, Mothers and Daughters, and being a woman with Breast Cancer." I was one of the women who contributed and after reading the book, I have to say I am proud to be a part of this project.

Fighting Cancer with the Help of Your Catholic Faith

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Very helpful book for me. I wish I had this book right after I found out about my cancer, but found it even more helpful after I found it. It does help me as I talk to others about what I am going through. The book is true by it saying that Cancer is a lonely disease. It is but with the help of this book. I learned to find peace with my illness and accepting cancer is a little easier even though I have still have fears of it coming back. I feel I can accept it if it chooses to come back.

Poem, Slow Dance

Type: 
Book
Description: 

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done
!

Do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

Ever told your child,

We'll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift....

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

Cure: Scientific, Social, and Organizational Requirements for the Specific Cure of Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Dr. Arny Glazier, a cancer researcher, feels that deeply held assumptions, theories and dogmas about cancer are not tenable given the fundamental evolutionary nature of the disease. He has published a book, "Cure: Scientific, Social, and Organizational Requirements for the Specific Cure of Cancer." The book, which was written for both scientists and non-scientists, explains tumor cell evolution and its logical implications.

He feels that cancer is about the properties of evolutionary populations of cells. He believes that the diverse, evolutionary nature of cancer implies that the required target for the consistent and specific cure or control of cancer is "the set of all malignant cells that could evolve."

To him, the consistent and specific cure or control of cancer will require developing a set of drugs, given in combination, targeted to patterns of normal cellular machinery related to proliferation and invasiveness. These requirements define a rational, practical strategy to develop curative therapy for all forms of solid cancer. A sufficient number of independent methods of cell killing must be employed so that it is too improbable for a cancer cell to evolve that can escape death or inactivation. It must examine every cell in the body and must do so for a prolonged period of time.

Although his book may argue against the notion of personalized therapy tailored to the individual's cancer cells, given the current state of the art, in vitro drug sensitivity testing could be of significant clinical value to his premise. If an in vitro drug resistance test can demonstrate the presence of cancer cells that are resistant to a drug combination, then it is rational to use alternative therapy. If an in vitro drug sensitivity test has the ability to demonstrate which drug combinations would be synergistic to cell death in all cancer cells present, then it is rational to use the drugs indicated in the test.

Cell culture assays, using the whole cell profiling method, can assess the activity of a drug upon combined effect of all cellular process, using combined metabolic (cell metabolism) and morphologic (structure) endpoints, at the cell population level, measuring the interaction of the entire genome.

I feel the book is well worth the reading for anyone wanting a better understanding about the fight against cancer. It is available at: http://www.lulu.com/content/276115
