When Olivia Newton-John began to have trouble walking, she never imagined that it was due to a cancer relapse.

The 68-year-old actress told Today that she initially thought her pain was due to sciatica. However, she soon learned she had breast cancer that had metastasized to the sacrum.

“I guess it was a little surprising,” she told Natalie Morales in an interview that aired Thursday morning. “I never would have associated it because in my mind, it was over. I had finished with it.”

However, Newton-John is not letting her diagnosis get her down. Although she admits to having dark moments, she chooses to be positive and look forward with a “glass half full” attitude.

“I don’t read into prognosis and statistics because I think that can really be depressing,” she said. “I’m not going to be one of those statistics, I’m going to be fine.”

The Grease star added, “I will probably deal with this in my life as an ongoing thing. I think you can live with cancer the way you live with other things if you take care of yourself.”

In addition to traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, Newton-John credits beating cancer the first time to her overall wellness plan. The cancer treatment center in Melbourne, Australia, which bears her name now offers patients holistic treatments including yoga, massages, art and music therapy to aid in their recovery.

The actress also shared that she’s been treating the pain with medical marijuana her husband John Easterling grows.

“People have this vision from the ’60s of people just sitting around and getting stoned,” she said. “I think that it’s not about that. This plant is a healing plant. I think we need to change the vision of what it is because it helped me greatly and it helps with pain and inflammation.”

Bethenny Frankel to Undergo Skin Cancer Removal Surgery: ‘I Am Extremely Lucky to Have Caught It in Time’

A growth on Bethenny Frankel‘s face has been diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma.

Last month, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the Real Housewives of New York City star was being tested for skin cancer after she “had a growth removed” below her eye. Now, the Skinnygirl mogul will undergo surgery to remove the the skin cancer.

“I had a growth on my face that was enlarging. I guessed it to be a basal cell carcinoma and had it lanced and removed,” Frankel, 46, tells PEOPLE. “The doctor confirmed it is indeed basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer, and says while it is cancer, I am lucky to have it removed — so it won’t affect my overall health.”

“I am now scheduled to undergo Mohs surgery to remove the cancer, followed immediately by plastic surgery to remove any scarring,” she shares.

In light of her diagnosis, Frankel implores everyone to be diligent about protecting their skin from the sun.

“I am extremely lucky to have caught it in time, and it just goes to show you have to know your body and be very aware of any changes. This was a sharp reminder why it is so important that I religiously wear large hats to cover my face and reapply sunscreen,” she says. “Always make sure to rub in spray-on sunscreen on your kids — spraying it on by itself doesn’t cover them enough. Apply it thoroughly every two hours and check the expiration dates as sunscreen does not expire; and sit in the shade whenever possible.”

“I love to swim in the ocean and go to the beach, but this is a reminder that the sun is not your friend,” she adds.

On Aug. 30, Frankel — who has been actively campaigning to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey — shared an Instagram video about the catastrophic Houston-area flooding, announcing that 100 percent of the donations raised by her charity, B Strong, are going to women and families in need in the Houston area.

In response to a concerned fan’s question about the band-aid on her face, Frankel revealed that she “had a growth removed.”

Since Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, the reality star has been in action mode, raising money and supplies via her  B Strong Foundation in partnership with Dress for Success.

“I realized this is the time to raise your hand and help,” she told PEOPLE. “We’ve raised more than $ 300,000 in supplies and donations.”

Frankel arrived in Houston for a full-day marathon earlier this month to hand out supplies at the city’s Dress for Success office. There, she met with 200 volunteers to distribute clothing and necessities — including toothbrushes and toothpaste, socks (1,000 pairs from Bombas), underwear, bras, gift cards and gas cards — to more than 500 women and their families.

“I hope this will help these women from feeling helpless,” she added.  “And any surplus goods will be sent to Florida for families affected by Hurricane Irma.”

Now the reality star is busy raising more donations and gathering supplies for women and families in need after Hurricane Irma … even more than last time.

Tamra Judge Delays Bodybuilding Competition After Discovering More Skin Cancer: ‘Get Your Skin Checked’

Tamra Judge is putting her bodybuilding competition plans on hold after discovering another cancerous mole.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 49, discovered melanoma on her left butt cheek, and urged her Instagram followers to get their skin checked.

“I work out hard for this Booty. I was planning on competing again in November at 50 years old, but I’m not sure that’s happening now. It looks like God has a different plan for me,” Judge writes. “I’m showing you this picture because this is what melanoma looks like. I don’t want sympathy, I want you to save YOUR ass and get your skin checked. This was just a small black flat freckle … I had no idea!”

The mom of four previously had three spots that turned out to be basil cell skin cancer, and one squamous cell skin cancer, all of which can be treated with early detection and by quickly removing the skin cells.

Judge says she’s disappointed that she won’t be able to compete, but relieved that her doctors noticed the melanoma.

“I’ll be fine because my faith is strong and my Ass ain’t bad either. Thank you @cacoastalderm. I’ve been a little sad, worried and pissed off. But we caught it early and that makes me happy,” she says.

Teen On ‘America’s Got Talent’ Brings The Tears As She Performs For Her Father With Cancer

You’ll need all the tissues you can find watching Evie Clair’s performance from Tuesday night’s “America’s Got Talent.”

While onstage, the 13-year-old singer tearfully revealed that part of the reason she’s performing is for her dad, who was diagnosed with colon cancer about a year ago.

The audience was in tears even before Clair sang one note of Christina Perri’s “Arms,” a song she sings to her father when he’s going through rough days. When she started singing, and shots of her family watching offstage appeared on screen, it was just too much.

Just try not to cry all over your keyboard. Then you’ll be sobbing for other reasons.

Olivia Newton-John Is ‘Totally Confident’ She’ll Beat Breast Cancer Again

Olivia Newton-John is staying optimistic following her recent cancer diagnosis. 

The Australian songstress revealed earlier this month she was battling cancer for the second time, forcing her to postpone her nationwide tour to focus on her health.

Newton-John was first treated for breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43, undergoing a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. After canceling shows two weeks ago due to back pain, testing revealed that the cancer had returned and metastasized to her sacrum, a bone in the lower back.

“I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you. I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the U.S. and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia,” the singer told People in an exclusive statement. “I’m totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others! Love and light, Olivia.”

The “Grease” actress is currently laying low in her southern California ranch home with husband John Easterling while she undergoes photon radiation therapy, in addition to pursuing natural wellness therapies. After just a week of treatment, Newton-John’s pain level has already “gone from [level] eight to about a two,” according to her husband. 

“We both have the same unshakable belief that she’s going to have a wonderful success story,” Easterling told People. “We’re not trying to be positive. We have an absolute knowingness that we can turn this around.”

“She’s not naive and doesn’t get immobilized,” friend and talk-show host Leeza Gibbons added. “She finds light in the darkest corners and just always has.”

If all goes well, Newton-John reportedly plans to return to the stage later this year and resume touring for her album “LIV,” which was partly inspired by her cancer battle, as well as the death of her sister from brain cancer in 2013.

Olivia Newton-John’s Cancer Diagnosis: Health Experts Weigh In on Her Battle Ahead

Olivia Newton-John is battling breast cancer again, 25 years after her first diagnosis in 1992, and oncologists are weighing in on her long — but treatable — journey ahead.

“It’s a very long time from her primary and that usually means that it’s very treatable, and you can put it into long term remission,” explains Carolyn Runowicz, an oncologist and associate dean at the Herbert Wertheirm College of Medicine at Florida International University, who is not treating Newton-John. “It’s never good news to have a recurrent tumor — that’s devastating to the patient. But the further out you are from your initial diagnosis, the better the prognosis.”

Doctors have diagnosed the star, 68, with breast cancer that has metastasized to the sacrum (a bone in the lower back), according to a statement the singer posted on Facebook. She has also put her U.S. and Canadian concert tour on hold after initially postponing two weeks ago because of severe back pain from what she thought was sciatica.

“We’re lucky that there’s new drugs being developed and new treatments over time that make a difference, but this is something that 10 years of her life will be about trying to control this,” says Laura Esserman, director of the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center. “Part of anybody’s treatment should be about how you can handle every day in spite of the situation you find yourself in.”

Metastasis is the development of secondary malignant growths from a primary site of cancer, and the sacrum, where Newton-John is affected, is situated between the two hipbones of the pelvis.

“Bone metastatic disease is the most common type of metastatic disease from breast cancer,” explains Raquel Prati, a breast surgeon at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. “When it goes to the bone only, she may not need very aggressive treatment.”

According to Prati, metastatic to the bone tends to behave better than in other areas that breast cancer can affect, such as the liver or the brain.

Along with natural wellness therapies, the entertainer will be treated with a “short course of photon radiation therapy,” according to the statement.

Sheri Marquez, a radiation oncologist and medical director at the Cecilia Gonzalez De La Hoya Center in California, notes that Newton-John’s diagnosis “is not considered curable, but considered treatable” and breaks down what her type of radiation treatment typically entails.

“We use higher energy x-rays to kill cancer cells, basically,” Marquez says. “When you get radiation therapy, the x-ray is stronger, and it’s focused treatment so we can shape where the radiation goes.”

As Marquez explains, radiation therapy is planned for the area that needs to be treated, so the side effects of treatment will relate only to what’s treated.

“When we’re treating the pelvis, and the rest of the body is being protected, she won’t lose the hair on her head,” Marquez says. “She may get nausea, vomiting or diarrhea from irritation in those treatment areas.”

Since bone marrow would be the target in this case, there’s a chance that white blood cell, red blood cell, and platelet count could be affected. With that, there’s a higher risk of infection, bleeding, and fatigue.

With a short course of treatment, Marquez says that over 90 percent of patients will report some benefits and eventually over 50 percent will have complete resolution of their pain.

“We try very hard with the treatment to spare what we don’t need to treat so patients can get back to their lives,” Marquez says.

In 2013, Newton-John lost her beloved sister Rona to brain cancer shortly after her diagnosis. Whether her family history will come into play now, Prati says, “Brain cancer tends not to be related to breast cancer, but it depends on how much more family history she might have.”

“All cancers are genetic, but all cancers are not inherited,” adds Runowicz. “So you have to take a very careful history.”

Toddler Pays Tribute To Her Cancer Survivor Grandma In Awesome Photos

Three-year-old Scout Larson has made headlines thanks to her series of adorable photos that show the little girl dressed as as fierce female icons

For her latest shoot, the toddler emulated a special hero in her life: her grandmother, who is a breast cancer survivor.

Scout’s mom, Ashley, told HuffPost that her mother was the initial inspiration behind the famous icons shoot. She wanted to teach Scout about strong, courageous women as her grandmother battled cancer. 

“From the beginning, I was planning on making Scout and my mom (”Nonnie”) each a photo book of all the recreated photos we shot,” Ashley told HuffPost. “I felt like it would only make sense to do photos of my mom as well since she’s the inspiration behind the entire project.”

The grandmother was a bit camera shy at first. “My mom is very selfless,” Ashley explained. “Being the center of attention is definitely not her favorite thing.”

Scout, however, loves posing for pictures and helped bring her out of her shell. The toddler particularly loved the matching shirts, which Ashley and her mom made for the grandma-granddaughter photo shoot. 

“She had such a blast getting to shoot with her Nonnie,” Ashley said. “She was seriously thrilled to get to match with her.”

Today, Ashley’s mother is doing well. “She’s cancer free and back to doing whatever she feels like doing! Her hair is growing back in beautifully and her strength is coming back,” she said, adding that her mom has one surgery coming up, but they’re ready to face this last step together as a family.

“She’s the toughest lady I know,” Ashley added. “My sister and I are lucky to be a part of her. My babies and my nieces have the best Nonnie in the world.”

Ultimately, Scout’s mom wants people who look at these photos to see that women are fierce and strong. 

“My mom, although she was sick, was my rock throughout the entire diagnosis and treatment. Fighting breast cancer, I know she was in pain and she was exhausted, but she never once showed that side to the little people who call her ‘Nonnie,’” Ashley said, adding that the grandmother continued to laugh and play with her grandchildren and took part in a normal Christmas celebration just a few weeks after having a double mastectomy. 

“Being a hero doesn’t always mean you’re saving the world,” Ashley said. “Sometimes, just showing up for life and meeting the problems head on is enough.”

Bride Refuses To Let Incurable Cancer Stop Her Wedding

A terminally ill bride-to-be refused to let a rare type of incurable cancer stop her from marrying the love of her life.

In hospice, surrounded by loved ones, Madisonville, Tennessee, resident Ronda Bivens married the father of her two young children Thursday in an impromptu service organized by family and friends.

“She wanted to have a beautiful wedding, and I wanted to give her that,” Ronda’s husband, Matt Mager, told HuffPost.

Ronda’s best friend, Amanda Dalton, was among those who helped organize the nuptials.

“It was friends calling friends, getting everything together,” said Dalton, who helped get Ronda into a donated wedding dress. “We called the county clerk’s office ― they sent someone out ― and we got a preacher. It happened literally within a couple hours once we got it rolling.”

Ronda’s wedding day, which was also her 28th birthday, came after more than a year of chemotherapy, radiation and the amputation of her right leg, with Matt all the while by her side.

“He is like one of a kind,” said Dalton. “He’s been there nonstop for her since the beginning. He loves her unconditionally. That’s the truth.”

Doctors in February 2016 diagnosed a lump on Ronda’s ankle as epithelioid sarcoma, a rare type of a cancer that affects only 1 in 2.5 million people. Unfortunately, doctors years earlier had misdiagnosed the lump ― first as tendinitis and then as a torn tendon, Matt said.

Ronda’s doctors amputated her leg in May 2016, but by then the cancer had spread to her lungs.

“They told us right off the bat there was no cure,” Matt said. “They said, ‘We can just do what helps.’ But everything they’ve done has just made it worse. It’s financially wrecked us, and I’ve had a front row seat to my best friend dying. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It’s very emotional.”

Because epithelioid sarcoma is so rare, it’s not a disease doctors were aware of until the 1970s, and even today many doctors are reportedly not as familiar with it as perhaps they should be.

In an online post after her diagnosis, Ronda urged anyone who comes across a lump or bump to take it seriously.

“Never in a million years would I or anyone else thought this would be cancer but it is,” she wrote. “So please everyone, if you find a bump of any sort go to the doctor. Go to a bunch of doctors for second opinions. Maybe if I did, instead of believing all these other misdiagnoses, things would be different.”

When her condition worsened last week, Ronda was admitted to the intensive care unit at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where the couple received devastating news: Her cancer had spread to her brain.

“The doctor told us they found a tumor on her brain and the cancer had basically taken over her lungs,” Matt said. “They said the left lung had stopped working and the right lung was infected. They told me she had only a few days to live.”

According to Matt, they were presented with two choices: Doctors could sedate Ronda and put a breathing tube down her throat or he could take her home and make her comfortable.

“She wanted to come home, so we’re home now,” he said. “I hold her hand every day and am trying to focus on the time we have. She’s on a morphine pump to soothe her pain, so she’s in and out of it. But when she comes in, she’s still the same fighter. I can’t even tell you how strong she is.

One of those moments of clarity was on the couple’s wedding night.

“She woke up last night and she was so excited about the wedding,” Matt said. “We sat there and talked about it for an hour. She asked to see the wedding photos. We looked at them, laughed and cried and held each other.”

The couple, who have known each other since childhood, have been together since they were teenagers.  

“She’s got the most beautiful eyes ― eyes you can’t get away from,” Matt said.

They have two children, a 6-year-old son, who just graduated first grade, and a 4-year-old daughter. Matt said the couple’s daughter is too young to understand what’s going on, but their son is heartbroken.

“I told him his mother is going to heaven soon,” Matt said. “I’ve sat there and talked with him and cried with him. I had to tell him it ain’t going to be same. It’s hard ― no 6-year-old should have to hear that.”

Friends of the family have created a GoFundMe page in an effort to help with medical and living expenses. Matt, who works as a roofing contractor, has had little time to work since Ronda’s diagnosis. As of Friday, more than $ 500 had been raised.

Ronda, who was unable to participate in this story, recently shared her thoughts on Facebook:

“I’ve seen better days, but I’ve also seen worse. I don’t have everything that I want, but I do have all I need. I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up. My life may not be perfect, but I am Blessed.”

Matt said that, while he has little control over what happens next, there is one thing he is certain of: “Our children will never forget her. I tell her every day the kids are never not going to know who you are.”

Val Kilmer Acknowledges Cancer Battle For First Time

Speculation surrounding Val Kilmer’s health has been circulating for about two years now, but the actor has mostly been quiet about the subject. 

During a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything session, however, Kilmer addressed his health, admitting he had “a healing of cancer.”

A fan asked Kilmer about Michael Douglas’ 2016 comments that suggested the “Top Gun” star was battling cancer. At the time, Kilmer said Douglas was “misinformed.” 

“What was the story behind that?” the Reddit user wrote. 

“He was probably trying to help me cause press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer, but my tongue is still swollen altho healing all the time,” Kilmer answered. “Because I don’t sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather.” 

Prior to this AMA, Kilmer had not publicly admitted he had cancer, though last November he was reportedly having trouble speaking while at an event promoting his one-man play “Citizen Twain.” During that event, he reportedly told the crowd his tongue was swollen and he was “still recovering,” but did not say from what.  

Rumors about his health first surfaced in January 2015, when it was reported Kilmer had been hospitalized for bleeding from his throat. Outlets reported he underwent surgery for a throat tumor. 

The actor continually denied any illness or surgery, though was spotted later that year with what appeared to be a tracheostomy tube around his neck. After that, he began covering his neck with scarves or bandanas while out in public, but still did not address his illness.

David Bowie Didn’t Know Cancer Was Terminal Until Three Months Before Death

Days before the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death, a new documentary is shedding light on the singer’s final years before he lost an 18-month battle to liver cancer.  

Directed by Francis Whately, “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” airing on BBC Two Saturday, follows the rock icon on his 2003 A Reality Tour, as well as throughout the production of his last studio album, “Blackstar.”

According to Johan Renck, the director for the music video of the album’s final single, “Lazarus,” the 69-year-old rock icon discovered his cancer was terminal only three months before his death, while he was still working on the video. 

According to the BBC, Renck explains in the documentary that he wasn’t made aware of Bowie’s diagnosis until after filming the video for “Lazarus,” which heavily features death and rebirth symbolism.

“I found out later that the week we were shooting is when he found out that it is over,” Renck said.

Despite the imagery that suggests Bowie was contemplating his own mortality through his music ― the video begins with the singer in a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes ― the director denies that the music video had anything to do with his illness. The Guardian reports that Renck created the vision for “Lazarus” a week before learning of Bowie’s diagnosis. 

“David said: ‘I just want to make it a simple performance video,’” Renck recalled. “I immediately said, ‘The song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed.’ … To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it … it had nothing to do with him being ill.”

Bowie kept his illness a secret from almost everyone around him in an effort to protect his family and continue work on his final album. According to the Guardian, the singer was making a sequel to “Lazarus” just weeks before his death. 

“I don’t find it strange he kept his illness so private,” the documentary’s director, Francis Whately, told the Guardian. “He’d had his life picked over for 40 years and he thought he had said everything he wanted to say, there was nothing more.”

Watch a trailer for “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” below:

Cancer Survivor Proudly Bares Mastectomy Scars in Powerful Equinox Campaign

Samantha Paige had already been diagnosed with thyroid cancer when she tested positive for the BRCA 1 gene mutation, which meant she was susceptible to various female-specific cancers.

“When my daughter was seven months old, my determination to be healthy for my baby was so strong that I decided it was the right time to preemptively have the double mastectomy,” Paige, 41, tells PEOPLE. “I didn’t want to keep going for MRIs and mammograms every three to six months — it was too unnerving and the risk seemed too great.”

Even though she knew it could be the best decision for her health, choosing to undergo the surgery was “scary.”

“It’s a huge surgery and a painful one, but for me  was also a moment of empowerment and committing to something, which was to be in control of my own wellness,” says the Santa Barbara, California-based artist. “As a new mother, it felt very powerful to make the decision to not be waiting for a diagnosis, but to sort of flip that on its head.”

After undergoing the double mastectomy, Paige decided to undergo reconstructive surgery.

“The implants were presented as, ‘This is how most women feel happier and more normal,’” she says. “When I got the implants, I was in a very different mindset.”

WATCH: Rita Wilson Has Breast Cancer, Undergoes Double Mastectomy and Reconstructive Surgery

In fact, Paige says the implants never felt quite right and believes they may have been responsible for a staph infection she couldn’t get rid of for months. After speaking with a friend who told her about the link between silicone implants and certain health problems, she decided to get her implants removed.

“I wanted to feel healthy, and I knew for me it was the right decision,” she says. “I felt better immediately.”

Paige jumped at the chance to be a part of Equinox’s 2017 “Commit to Something” campaign because it resonated with her own personal mission.

“When I had the implants out, I realized that we all know what matters most to us, and the next step is the action we take to stand up for those ideals and those beliefs and those values,” she says. “Equinox’s message of ‘Commit to Something’ is about being able to look at yourself in the mirror and realize who you are and stand up to those values. It just dovetails with what I believe in.”

Paige hopes to inspire others through the campaign image by showing her self-confidence — scars and all.

“I hope people will look at the image and walk away saying, ‘Wow, that’s incredible that that woman feels so comfortable in her own skin,’” she says. “After coming to this place of loving my body and every scar, my goal is to influence, first of all, how my daughter feels about her body as a growing woman, and if it can influence another person to do the same, I feel as if I have done something beautiful.”

Val Kilmer Reveals Michael Douglas Apologized For Suggesting He Has Cancer

Val Kilmer has revealed his former co-star Michael Douglas has apologized for publicly suggesting the “Top Gun” actor was battling cancer

In a Facebook post shared Tuesday night, Kilmer confirmed he received a “nice note” from Douglas apologizing for providing the misinformation. 

“[He] was grateful to hear I am doing well,” Kilmer wrote. “He’s a classy guy.” 

In his post, the “True Romance” actor also provides a few details about meeting Douglas and his father, Kirk, for the first time. You can read it in full below: 

Kilmer’s message comes a few weeks after Douglas said in an interview, “Val was a wonderful guy who is dealing with exactly what I had, and things don’t look too good for him.” 

After the news spread, a rep for Douglas released a statement regarding the actor’s comments, noting he was “under the impression” Kilmer was ill. Kilmer himself then disputed Douglas claims in a Facebook post saying his former co-star was “misinformed.” 

Speculation surrounding Kilmer’s health began circulating in January 2015, when it was reported that the “Top Gun” actor had been hospitalized after he began bleeding from his throat. It was believed the star underwent surgery for a throat tumor. 

Kilmer has adamantly denied any illness or surgery, though he was spotted out in December 2015 with what seemed to be a tracheostomy tube around his neck. Afterward, he continued covering his neck with scarves and bandanas when out in public. 

This past February, the actor was seen without the medical device (or scarf) around his neck in a few photos he shared online, but he has yet to address it. 

Last week, Kilmer made his first public appearance since denying Douglas’ claims and was having trouble speaking, according to People. The actor, who was promoting his one-man play in “Citizen Twain” in Los Angeles, reportedly admitted to the crowd that he was “still recovering” though he did not say from what. 

“My tongue swelled up and I canceled the tour. As I’m recovering, I’m showing this,” he reportedly said.

Michael Bublé Takes A Break From Singing After Son’s Cancer Diagnosis

Just one week after Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato announced that their 3-year-old son, Noah, has cancer, Bublé’s friend and mentor David Foster gave an update on how the singer is coping.

“I think Michael, right now, is in a huge bubble, as you would expect when this happens. Everything shuts down around you,” the composer told Entertainment Tonight Canada, later adding that Bublé “will not sing again until his child is well.”

“I’m certain of it,” he said.

Many fans have reached out to the singer through social media, and Foster said that a few have contacted him wishing to extend their well-wishes and resources to Bublé. Though the diagnosis is heartbreaking, Bublé is “in good shape.” 

“He’s got good doctors around him. We will hope and pray for a good outcome, which I believe that they will have,” Foster said, suggesting his fellow Canadian’s “good karma” will come into play.

Last Friday, Bublé and his wife broke the news about Noah’s illness in a Facebook post, asking fans to respect their privacy.

“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US,” the statement read. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.”

The Touching Thing This 5-Year-Old Did After Losing Her Dad To Cancer

A Wisconsin preschooler celebrated her fifth birthday with a special tribute to her father, who died of cancer. 

Olesia Clark was 2 years old when her dad Kyle passed away in December 2012 after a 17-month battle with brain cancer, her mom Elizabeth told The Huffington Post. 

“Olesia and Kyle were very close,” Clark said. “They spent a lot of time hanging out, going for long walks and reading books. He even took her to the gym with him where he worked part-time where she would sit behind the desk with him to greet clients.”

Around the time school ended last year, Olesia asked her mom if she could cut her hair and give it to kids who have cancer. When Clark asked her daughter why she wanted to do that, “she said that a friend from her class had done it and that she thought it was a really good thing to do,” the mom said. 

As Olesia and her mom were starting to plan her fifth birthday party, they decided that would be the perfect time to make the hair donation. On July 18, Clark’s stylist friend Tracie came to their house, and cut off 12 inches of Olesia’s hair to donate to Wigs for Kids.

Though the little girl “seemed a little nervous,” her mom said Olesia’s face “lit up” in excitement when Tracie handed her the freshly cut ponytail.  ”It was a really hot and humid day so when her new cut and style was complete, she kept running her fingers through it telling me that it felt ‘so cool.'” Clark said.

Olesia then celebrated her fifth birthday with friends and family, but instead of opening traditional birthday gifts she asked guests to make donations to the Aurora Health Care Foundation to support neuro-oncology research at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center. 

The donations in lieu of presents idea was a suggestion from Olesia’s mom. “I asked her, ‘Would you like to ask for birthday gifts for your birthday like you do every year or since you are going to be donating your hair, would you also like to ask your friends to make donations to help people like your daddy instead of bringing gifts?'” Clark told HuffPost. “Without hesitation, her response was, ‘I want to help people like my daddy!'”

Clark said Olesia still cherishes her memories of her father. “The thing that she remembers most about him is how much fun they used to have together,” the mom said. “He was a really funny guy and she remembers that he was really funny and made her smile a lot, even when he was in the hospital.”

The mom also believes Olesia’s selflessness is making her dad very proud. “He was always proud of her, from the time she took her first breath until the time he took his last. There is not a doubt in my mind that he’s up there in Heaven, smiling down on her with pride at this very moment,” she said.

Clark hopes her family’s story will raise awareness and inspire people to donate to brain cancer research. She also hopes Olesia can inspire other people who have lost loved ones to cancer to get their children involved in the cause. 

“Olesia went through a lot when her dad died and still struggles with the aftermath of losing a parent. Making the decisions to cut her hair and then to collect donations instead of birthday presents gave her a new sense of healing from her experiences,” the mom said. “It opened up an opportunity for her to talk about her dad and help others in the process. And she didn’t miss the presents at all — in fact, she still looks for donation notifications in the mail every day in hopes that more people are giving.”

Man Plants Endless Lanes Of Sunflowers To Honor Beloved Late Wife, Benefit Cancer Patients

This man’s love for his late wife has only blossomed. 

Don Jaquish‘s beloved wife, Babette, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer, back in 2006, according to ABC News. Sadly, she died late last year.

Babette was a huge fan of sunflowers, so Don honored her in the most fitting way possible — by planting a giant stretch of  sunflowers for her. They bloomed this month and Don plans to harvest and sell the seeds to help benefit cancer patients as part of his organization Babbette’s Seeds of Hope, ABC News reported.

“She got to be known as the sunflower lady of the community,” Don told ABC News of his wife. “So after she passed away, I thought it would be a tribute to her to plant 4.5 miles of sunflowers on each side of Highway 85.”

The “sunflower strip” covers the land of five different farms, KARE 11 reported. Don, who planted the flowers over a span of a week, was able to rent land from his neighbors at a reasonable price to complete the project.

He told ABC News that it was Babbette who originally came up with the idea of selling sunflower seeds and donating a portion of the proceeds to cancer research. About a month after his wife’s death, Don formed Babbette’s Seeds of Hope. Through the group, he’ll sell the seeds in bags, which will soon be available for purchase, with Babbette’s face on them along with her story printed on them. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to hospitals, research and patient advocacy, according to the company’s website.

It’s something the loving husband says would’ve made his wife proud. 

“I think she would be smiling,” Don told ABC News. “We had an amazing response. We’ve had people all over the world send emails.”

While the sunflowers took a lot of time and effort to plant, Don says it was all worth it — especially for a woman whose spirit matched the beauty of the flowers. 

“They fit her personality,” the widower told KARE11. “She’d walk into a room and her smile would light up a whole room.”

Months after her Babbette’s death, Don found a note from his wife stuck in a folder. In light of the sunflowers and their seeds, her words certainly ring true. 

“You move on and live each day,” Babbette wrote, according to KARE11. “Feel me in the morning air, and when you wake up and make your coffee. I will be there always.”

4-Year-Old Cancer Patient ‘Marries’ Her Favorite Nurse

Chemotherapy treatments aren’t something most people look forward to.

But thanks to a nurse by the name of Matt Hickling, 4-year-old Abby Sayles doesn’t seem to mind them. She especially looked forward to her session last Thursday, when, thanks to the hospital staff at the Albany Medical Center, she ”married” Hickling in an impromptu wedding:

 

Video of the lighthearted ceremony, shared on the Albany Medical Center’s Facebook page, shows Abby entering the hospital room along with a handful of nurses who served as bridesmaids.

A local florist donated a bouquet, corsages and a boutonniere for the occasion, reports the Albany Times Union, along with a puppy-shaped basket of flowers.

While the “groom” didn’t have a suit for the occasion, he did sport the next best thing: a tuxedo t-shirt.

“Our patient shyly asked me to marry her,” Hickling recalled in a post on his Facebook page. “I didn’t hesitate to say yes, I got a HUGE hug and we sealed the deal with ring pops being placed on our fingers!”

 

“So today I got to help make a 4 year old leukemia patient’s ‘wedding’ to her favorite nurse happen at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at [Albany Medical Center],” one of the nurses, Lori Ciafardoni, wrote on Facebook.

“Thanks to Scott Wright the team at the Enchanted Garden for donating your time and amazing flowers and to everyone at AMC that helped pull this together in less than 24 hours.”

“You people are amazing,” she added. “THIS is why we go into nursing.”

I Remember Rachel for Her Ferocity for Life, Not Cancer

2015-06-22-1434997709-3575241-HorizontalCropBen.jpg

The skeet whooshed towards the heavens. My right eye stared ahead with the barrel flush. I had developed a rhythm with the saucer: After it launched I waited until it reached a precise point in my field of vision and then I pulled the trigger. Without patience, my aim would be low and the saucer would continue its original trajectory until it fell to the ground. So I waited and then, click, the target erupted, its orange pieces blending with the sky like a perfect match on the color wheel.

I hit 11 of 25 skeets. My friend Rachel, who I’m sure shot guns growing up based on my generalization of people from Arkansas and who say things like, “My drinking water had tadpoles,” only shot two. She hit her first, missed the next 23, and ended with a bang. Rachel sat against a rock and watched others in our group shoot. She smiled and now said things like, “I have not spent time outside in days. It is beautiful.”

There was not a cloud above us and Rachel, a Fulbright scholar, began telling me a story about the sky. If people had never been told the sky was blue then they may see it as white, another color, or simply a void. Those people may have as much trouble wrapping their heads around the blue sky as I have around not seeing it as blue.

I can’t see Rachel in a different light, either. When I met her 2.5 years ago I saw a radiant and beautiful 27-year-old whose attitude matched her use of exclamation points. She told me stories back then, too, like the meaning of interrobang, which is a combination of an exclamation point and a question mark, and how she was diagnosed at 26 with stage 3 colon cancer that would later spread to her ovaries and omentum, “upgrading” the cancer to stage 4. Rachel would stay on treatment forever, in a concept that is new to me and the way I had “finished” cancer treatment when I was a teen: Rachel was living with cancer.

I may never have met Rachel if her life trajectory had not been erupted by cancer. Even though we had many similarities and both lived in Washington, D.C., we met as part of a group of cancer survivors to rock climb on the red rocks of Moab, Utah, our trip funded by a nonprofit that believes providing outdoor adventures changes survivors’ lives.

I have always been strong and lean as if I was meant to climb rock walls in that desert that looked like Mars. Still, Rachel was better at climbing. She possessed grace and strength that was less obvious than mine. Rachel was actually better than me at most things I was passionate about, including writing, shedding body fat, researching nutrition and drinking whiskey, which I realized when we toasted her 29th birthday with her dad’s homemade moonshine.

When her cancer returned, Rachel underwent surgery to remove ovaries and parts of her colon. Controversial surgery to slice her open and pour hot chemotherapy into cavity, a procedure known as shake and bake. More surgery to remove more tumor and peek inside at the cancer that had spread everywhere and could not be removed due to its placement near her organs. So much treatment and so many procedures over so many years that I could not keep track of Rachel’s status without feeling like I was burdening her.

When Rachel shared episodes from her life there was always a funny story, because if her level of suffering couldn’t break her then nothing could. When she had to cancel climbing with me she said, “This kid with a provisional driver’s license just ran into me. I’m fine, car is fine — just a fender bender, luckily. And the guy was a super nice kid!”

And, “I’m supposed to be in the hospital right now but they don’t have a bed for me yet. I guess Georgetown was just really busy today! I just have some sort of bug, could be a result of the trip to Zambia. Who knows.”

And while she was still hospitalized the day before her thirtieth birthday party she said, “I have a lot of potential arguing to do in the morning to get them to let me out of here for a few hours. I’ll call you if we need to execute ‘plan prison break!'”

I am fortunate to have completed my 20s without cancer, following an adolescence smothered by it. I spent my college years questioning how to live more than actually living: When would I share with friends and romantic interests that I had had cancer? How long could I lie about my limp that was caused by my resected cancerous ilium? Could I ever do it again if I had to — endure cancer and its treatments with the same unwavering spirit and superhuman conviction?

Now eight years after college I wonder if I could I ever do what Rachel did — live with cancer without any possibility of a cure, all while never letting up on exclamation points?

Sitting straight up, on the ground with her back supported by the rock, under the clear blue sky, Rachel was at peace. She hadn’t eaten in a month and days before, the procedure to insert a feeding tube nearly failed catastrophically when her doctor at first couldn’t get the tube past the tumor that was blocking the entrance into her stomach. “That was almost it,” she said.

I have seen many young people pass away due to cancer. When death is inevitable, the end can come quickly. Rachel was different, living nine more months without food or drink; never surrendering to disease; never surrendering her loving and positive spirit. “I just want to live and have more adventures,” she said, still smiling at the heavens.

Rachel Yingling erupted into my life and so many others’ lives. She is the blue sky: Her impact on those who knew her was so great that none of us can imagine what life would be like if we had not met her.

Joan Lunden Opens Up About Her ‘Emotional Breakdown’ After Cancer Treatment

It’s been one year since veteran TV host Joan Lunden heard the words that completely changed her life: “You have cancer.” Since then, she’s appeared in all her beautiful, bald glory on the cover of People magazine, tested negative for any remaining cancer and launched ALIVE, an online TV network where women openly discuss their own battles with the disease.

But the picture isn’t completely rosy. On Wednesday, Lunden spoke with HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd and fellow breast cancer survivor Anne Marie Giannino-Otis about the often-underestimated challenges of recovery after cancer treatment.

“There are all these things that nobody tells you about. Everybody is focused on losing your hair. Okay, that happens, but your hair actually grows back. … [But] there are a lot of other things that live on after, and certainly one of the biggest ones is the fear of recurrence,” Lunden said.

When Giannino-Otis noted that many women see their treatment as a “security blanket” and often confront new fear when it’s over, Lunden admitted that the most challenging part of her cancer battle has been the time since she ended treatment.

“I can tell you that I had a total emotional breakdown, and to me, the time since the treatment has been far harder,” Lunden said. “There’s a separation anxiety element to [ending treatment], but mainly it’s just … kind of like, ‘Okay, go now, and have a nice life and hope it’s all okay.’ And it’s really hard after that. I mean, I will tell you the most emotionally difficult time for me has been since my last day of treatment.”

Zen Cancer Wisdom

Zen Cancer Wisdom


With a much-needed sense of levity, Daju Suzanne Friedman teaches the art of keeping one’s body, mind, and spirit together while living with cancer. “Layman Wang once asked his attendant,’What would you do if a dragon suddenly arrived here?’ His attendant answered, ‘I wouldn’t pay attention to anything else.’ This is how it feels when you’ve been diagnosed with cancer. Your attention and focus shift dramatically towards just this one thing. While single-minded focus can be beneficial, it is also important to remember that you are more than your diagnosis, and that there is more to life than being a patient.” –from the introduction In Zen Cancer Wisdom , Daju Suzanne Friedman–Zen teacher, Chinese medicine doctor, and Qigong specialist–shares the inspirations, insights, and humor that helped her to continue to live fully in the face of cancer. With sections devoted to soothing the spirit, harnessing the mind, nourishing the body, and qigong stretches for soothing aches and pains, Friedman provides thoughtful guidance on topics ranging from hair loss and constipation to coping with stress and learning to laugh again. Each chapter begins with an anecdote drawn from the Zen tradition, followed by personal reflection, and a brief guided practice specifically for cancer patients. Pocket-sized, with short, buoyant chapters, and meditation exercises designed to be practicable anywhere in only a few minutes time, Zen Cancer Wisdom is the perfect companion book for cancer patients.

Thank You, Cancer

Shalin Shah is 22 years old, born and raised in Southern California. Last August, while training for his Peace Corps service in Peru, he fell extremely ill with a racking cough, difficulty breathing and intense rib pain. A CT scan found the cause of his suffering was a 6-inch mass in his chest cavity. After being medically evacuated back to the US, Shalin was diagnosed with stage IV synovial sarcoma with brain, lung and spinal cord metastasis, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. His reflection below was written days after doctors confirmed his terminal prognosis and told him he had only six to nine months left to live. During that time he has really lived — including getting married to his high school sweetheart Francis Chen. Shalin is currently in the hospital in California. Although the doctors have given him only days to live, at this time, Shalin is fighting strong.

Most people who I share my story with react the same way: “that’s so sad” or “but you’re so young, you still have so much more life ahead of you” or “I’m so sorry, this is so unfair.” And at first — yes, I thought so too. I thought my cancer was the most unfair trick life could play on me. I mean, having just graduated college, I was at the point where I could finally start life in the ‘real world’ and get a job and become independent. At a time when all of my friends were starting new jobs and moving to different places all around the world, I was stuck at home back with my parents receiving cancer treatment. Seemed pretty unfair to me.

Looking back now, I guess it has been a pretty crazy past year for me: studying abroad in Paris, graduating with honors from USC, training for the Peace Corps in Peru, being diagnosed with non-terminal cancer, learning I had terminal cancer…

For me, Feb. 5 was the day every cancer patient plays out in their heads over and over again and hopes never to actually have to experience. This was the day my doctor informed me and my parents that my cancer had spread to my brain and was now medically incurable, and that I had only a few months to live. In all of the hundreds of playbacks in my head of how I would take the news, I was always sobbing uncontrollably, utterly devastated…but the reality was far different from how I would have expected to react to the news. Sure, for the first five minutes I was sobbing uncontrollably as I had imagined, but then suddenly an overwhelming calm swept over me.

As I stared out of my hospital room’s window towards the Hollywood Hills, I was finally at peace, oddly accepting and fine with the news I had just received. In a way, it was extremely liberating not having to stress or worry about whether or not the treatment was working anymore. Instead of worrying if I was going to live or die, this terminal prognosis simplified the equation for me. After all, I have no idea why I even feared death so much before.

We know absolutely nothing about death or what happens after death, only that we all will indeed die. Then there is really no legitimate reason to fear death anyways, it’s simply another irrational fear of the unknown. Now I just had to focus on living out the rest of my life to the fullest and put all of my energy on having an awesome time enjoying the best of what life has to offer while leaving behind a positive footprint and legacy.

frances chen

However, it was not until recently that I realized what a blessing terminal cancer has been for me. Of course, I had already accepted my fate and come to terms with cancer, but now I actually am grateful that all of this has happened to me. I realized that had I not been through all that I have been through in the past few months, I would have never come face to face with death and had to reflect and rethink about my priorities, the purpose of my life and of life in general.

Had I not been pushed to this limit, I would not have cultivated a deep appreciation of the beautiful gift of life and of everything around me. I also would not have thought intensely about the legacy I intend to leave behind and how I wanted to impact the world in a positive way before my exit.

frances chan

This is no tragedy, I don’t even think it is sad in the slightest way to be honest. I’ve been so blessed in my life. I’ve lived in Paris, served the Peace Corps in Peru, fallen madly in love with the most amazing girl, have the most incredible family and friends anyone could ever ask for… and the list just goes on.

frances chen

I strongly believe everything happens for a reason. Had terminal cancer not happened to me, I would not have been able to inspire my closest friends and family to appreciate the beautiful gift of life a little more and live more appreciative and positive lives with my story. This is the purpose of my life I had been searching for all of my life — to inspire positive personal change in as many people as possible. In fact, that is the reason I’ve decided to write this article and go public with my story as well, I want to share my experience of realizing how beautiful the gift of life truly is in the hopes that it can inspire others who are going through tough times to appreciate the positive in life a little more. It is also the reason why I am, after all that I’ve been through in the past few months, thankful for terminal cancer.

frances chen

Join us in fulfilling Shalin’s life legacy by watching the sunset on May 24th, 2015. No matter where he is in the world, Shalin has always made time to watch the sunset, whether it has been over the Parisian skyline or from his hospital bed during his chemotherapy treatments. No matter where you are, please help us pay tribute to Shalin’s legacy by sharing a photo and tagging #SunsetsForShalin.

Marriage and Cancer: 10 Ways to Maintain Your Relationship After a Diagnosis

2015-03-04-1425443852-222590-madsenwedding952BW.jpg

Marriage is hard work. It requires a level of effort, dedication and commitment unparalleled to other relationships. One of the first pieces of marital wisdom I received from my parents was exactly that — “Marriage takes work. It’s not a stroll in the park.”

Marriage captures the ability of two people to rely on one another through both the good and bad times. It measures one’s character and integrity through the act of caring for another. As with any relationship, most marriages experience high peaks and low valleys. A diagnosis will bring out the best and worst of you and your partner. It has the potential to tear your relationship apart or bring you closer together more intimately than you could have imagined. As the saying goes, it’s not about what happens to you, it’s about how you respond. Upon receiving the news of a diagnosis, you must make the choice to not only fight the disease, but also fight for your relationship. Below are 10 ways to help your marriage after a diagnosis.

Commit: Above anything else, you must make the conscious decision to commit — both to your spouse and to the process. Commitment doesn’t automatically happen when you speak your vows. It is a choice that must be repeated over the course of your relationship. Your journey through cancer requires steadfastness and faithfulness to one another. You need to assume that life is going to get extremely bumpy and uncomfortable. Nearly everything you have encountered thus far has been butterflies, fairy dust, and roses and you’re about to endure some of the most difficult moments in your life. Both of you will be pulled in different directions and be influenced in many ways. When things get ugly, complications arise, and grief pours over you both, you need to hold tight to each other. Commit yourself to be there for one another no matter what happens.

Communicate: Continue to talk. Grief is expressed in a variety of ways and for some, it shows itself in silence. Though there will be times when you need to process on your own, don’t build a wall between you and your loved one. In an atmosphere of silence, assumptions are birthed and hurt will grow. Communicating can bring healing to your relationship. You will both experience different emotions from the moment you hear the news of the diagnosis, and being on the exact same emotional page will be a rarity. Keeping the lines of communication open will benefit your marriage by drawing you closer to one another and preventing hurt feelings in the future. It’s OK to express your fears and anxieties. And equally so, it’s OK to share your faith and hope. Be vulnerable and loving in your communication, and understand that talking things through will only benefit the bond you have with your spouse.

Prioritize: Life moves quickly upon receiving a diagnosis. Medical decisions will need to be made. You’ll need to find a team of doctors that you feel comfortable with. Treatment will be discussed, and you will need to choose which option is best for you. Eventually you’ll feel in over your head as the chaos circles around you. Keeping a list of priorities will help establish balance. Be aware of what tasks are at hand and stay on the same page as your spouse. Communicate what is most important to your relationship. Is it more important to preserve your fertility before beginning harsh treatments? Do you want to establish a medical banking account to manage expenses? Put yourselves first and be OK saying “no” to those around you. Your health and your marriage are number one.

Be flexible: Plans change… that’s life. When cancer rears it’s ugly head into your relationship, you need to start stretching. Many of your dreams, goals, and desires for your life and family will abruptly come to a halt. Keep a tight grip on your non-negotiables and let insignificant matters go. Change is difficult, but being flexible is more valuable than gold. Go with the flow. Some plans will fizzle and new dreams will come forth. Flexibility allows room for growth.

Stay on the same team: Cancer can bring out the worst in us. Anger is one of the most common emotions that patients and their families deal with. Remember that each of you process things differently, and that no way is better than the other. Allow each other space to grieve and be sympathetic towards one another. Remember that you are fighting cancer, not your loved one. Direct your anger towards the root of the issue, and don’t let your emotions erupt in an attack on your spouse. Though at times you’ll feel your partner doesn’t understand what you are going through, don’t alienate them and turn them into the enemy. You’re on the same team, and you each play a vital position. Work together at working through it.

Pursue: We’ve all heard that we should continue to date our spouse after our wedding day. Whether to keep things interesting or to continue to nurture the bond, pursuing each other is important to your relationship. This shouldn’t stop after a diagnosis. Though it will require a deeper level of intent, consistently seeking each other out will be rewarded. Make time for one another. Go out of your way to make your spouse feel special. Pursue your partner’s heart. Ask questions about how they are doing and be a good listener when they respond. Treatments and the subsequent side effects may get in the way of your typical dinner and a movie date night, but if you are creative you can cultivate new ways to deepen your bond. Remember that dates don’t have to be fancy or extravagant, and most likely won’t be for a while.

Be grateful: Have you ever met someone so full of gratitude that it made you reflect on what you’re thankful for? Having an attitude of gratitude in all circumstances will change your view of the most difficult times. Though you’ll have a large list of things you are angry, upset, and resentful over, make an effort to think of things that you are thankful for. Thanksgiving is one of the quickest ways to heal a hardened heart. Make a list. Whether in your mind or on paper, write down specific items you are grateful for. Be thankful for the details. Be thankful for all things big and little. Be thankful for the life and love you share with one another. An attitude of gratitude will transform your perspective and will strengthen your spirit throughout your battle.

Remain intimate: Intimacy isn’t always about sex. Though sex is one of the fundamental ways to be intimate with your partner, there are other means to stay connected. Unfortunately, cancer robs many people of their sexual function, yet marriages continue to blossom even without intercourse. When biology is thrown off, creativity is born. Adapting to your current situation will benefit you both. Be gentle with one another. Discover new ways to develop a more profound connection. Hold hands. Share secrets. Kiss. Being affectionate will remind your partner that you are invested in them. If you allow it, the intimacy in your relationship can reach new heights after a diagnosis. Vulnerability will welcome intimacy.

Remember your vows: Think back to the day you stood in front of your friends and family and made lifelong promises to your spouse. What did you say? More than likely, you vowed to stay by your partner in sickness and in health. While you probably had no idea that sickness meant cancer, you promised your partner you would not leave them when things got rough. You vowed to stand with each other no matter what. You vowed to love one another and cherish one another. There will be moments in your journey after your diagnosis that all you have left is the man or woman standing beside you. Think back to your wedding day. If you knew then what you know now, would your decision be different? True, authentic, raw love knows no bounds. You loved them then… love them now.

The Silent Revolution in Cancer and AIDS Medicine

The Silent Revolution in Cancer and AIDS Medicine


Examining all the major research data since the 1940s, this book challenges two orthodox medical models: HIV as the cause of AIDS, and random genetic mutations as the cause of cancer. Based on the recent findings from Evolutionary Biology and Nitric Oxide research, it presents a fundamentally new understanding of the human cell, its double genome split between the cell nucleus and the mitochondria, and the role of energy production and signal modulation for immune reactions and carcinogenesis. Finally, it explains the concept of a new Cell Symbiosis Therapy for the treatment of all chronic diseases, including cancer. Now available in English for the first time, this book is a must-read for doctors, patients and anyone following the cutting edge of biology and immunology. With the blasting open of such doors of knowledge, the medical world will never again be the same. Heinrich Kremer, MD, Medical Director Emeritus was, from 1968-1975, head of social therapy for addicts, sexual offenders and people with personality disorders at the Berlin Tegel prison which was the pilot project for the reform of the German penal system. In 1988 he resigned as medical director of a model clinic specializing in youth drug addiction due to differences on medical ethics regarding the HIV test and AIDS therapy. From 1993-1999 as collaborating member of the Study Group for Nutrition and Immunity (Bern) he investigated together with Prof. Alfred Hässig the mechanisms occurring in AIDS defining illnesses and in cancer. Since the publication of this book in German in 2001 he has been in demand as a lecturer on the treatment of chronic diseases, working today as senior consultant in a growing medical network for Cell Symbiosis Therapy.

5 Things Everyone Should Know When First Diagnosed With Cancer

1. Do not read the Internet
There are many reasons I highly recommend not going to the Internet for answers, but the biggest one is that everybody’s experience with cancer is different. You will probably type on Google: “What is Hodgkin’s Lymphoma” and more than a million hits will appear. Eventually you will end up on a blog where someone tells you that the cancer you have is caused by something you did or didn’t do, is curable by doing something you’ve never heard of, or worse yet, told something so dire, it only serves to increase the sense of dread you are already feeling.

2. Ask questions
This is a far better solution than the Internet. When you have your first appointment with your doctor, ask him/her anything. If your doctor seems in a rush or doesn’t have time to answer your questions, then that is a good indication that maybe you need to get a new doctor. When first diagnosed, we (as cancer patients), are scared, vulnerable and often isolated. Our doctor is there to not only guide us, but our loved ones as well.

Have a list of questions. Have a family member or friend with you. Tape record the conversation. Anxiety will be high. It’s difficult to remember information when feeling anxious. Ask them anything because in most situations they will be more informative than the Internet, and should also be more reassuring. Your question could be as simple as “When do I start treatment?” Or as complicated as, “When should I start banking my sperm?”

3. Understand that there are no short-term solutions
As much as cancer sucks, you will not be better by tomorrow. Take a deep breath and try to take each day one step at time. Sounds cliché, but in reality that is the only way you will get through the hardest days. Giving yourself a goal (like getting back to work/school) is great, seeing that goal through is even better. Cancer is a diagnoses, not an identity conclusion. It is what you are battling, not who you are. Take a WIDE angle view of your life. It may be cancer for now, but it is not the story of your life, so don’t let cancer define you.

4. Enjoy the days when you feel good
Not every day is going to suck as a cancer patient. Yes, most will, but if you have chemo once every three weeks, most likely that second week you will start to feel more normal. So do normal things. Go to a concert, see a movie, go to a party (probably shouldn’t drink), but do things that will take your mind off of the hard situation you are in. If you have the ability to do fun activities in the midst of all the crap that you are or will be going through, then that will help you get through the tough days. It will also serve to remind you what you want to be getting back to when you are cancer-free!

5. Use the cancer card
No, I don’t mean like, “Hey guys. I have cancer, feel bad for me.” I mean like: apply for scholarships to help you or your family financially. There are many resources available. Be proactive with multiple websites that offer financial assistance (i.e., cuckfancer.org, hope4yawc.org, thesamfund.org). Be social. If you want to go out with your friends, drive yourself. And when you want leave because you aren’t having fun, no one will ever question why you are leaving. It’s okay to be a little selfish. The goal is to take care of yourself. Sometimes that means saying yes, and sometimes that means saying no.

This Dog Is Battling Bone Cancer And Had His Leg Amputated, But He’s Still Loving Life

Life has not been easy for this pooch, but it hasn’t stopped him from living it up.

A short film uploaded to YouTube called “Tri-Pawed: Embracing Canine Osteosarcoma” chronicles the journey of Sheridan, a pup living with his owners, Morgan and Zack in Grenada as they attend veterinary school. In July, the beloved pooch was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, and needed his forelimb amputated. Despite his injury, the pup has maintained his lust for life.

Watch at the 4:04 mark as Sheridan runs around, enjoying the beach life on his three legs, splashing around in the pool and just being an all-around goofball.

The video goes on to explain that the canine has been undergoing chemotherapy, but is not expected to live for much longer. Even so, the clip’s description says it all — “For the time he has left, an excellent quality of life is what matters most.”

To learn more about Sheridan, or donate to help support his treatments, visit his fundraising page here.

Hugh Jackman Treated For Skin Cancer For Third Time, Urges Everyone To Wear Sunscreen

For the third time in under a year, Hugh Jackman has reportedly been diagnosed and treated for skin cancer.

The actor’s rep told E! News that Jackman was recently treated for basal cell carcinoma. The rep added that the “X-Men” star is “all good” now.

The 46-year-old Australian was previously treated for basal cell carcinoma in November 2013, and again in May this year. On both of those occasions, the cancer was removed from his nose.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of cancer in the United States, according to the National Institutes of Health. It is usually entirely treatable; however, the Skin Cancer Foundation warns that the disease can cause disfigurement if not promptly treated.

Since his diagnosis, Jackman has spoken out on the importance of using sun protection as well as getting regular checkups.

On Monday, he posted an image on his Instagram account featuring the words “Everybody’s free (to wear sunscreen),” an apparent reference to the spoken word song by Australian director Baz Luhrmann. In May, Jackman posted a photograph of his bandaged nose post-treatment with the plea: “PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!”

Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!

A photo posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on

Following his treatment last Spring, Jackman told The Associated Press that he believed his battle with skin cancer had not come quite come to an end.

“I’m realistic about the future and it’s more than likely that I’ll have at least one more but probably many more, which is not uncommon for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where I don’t remember ever being told to put sunscreen on,” Jackman told the news outlet. ”But the beauty of this is it’s all preventable, it’s just about getting proper check-ups. I can be typical man, a little lazy, I couldn’t be bothered and now I’m not lazy at all.”

At 33 years old, Susie was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was 1978, and the disease wasn’t yet a significant part of the public consciousness. Doctors didn’t know much about treating it. There were no support groups, toll-free numbers or Internet forums.

Eventually, Susie lost her battle with the disease; however, her memory lives on thanks to her sister, Nancy. In 1982, Nancy founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. To this day, the organization has invested more than $ 2.5 billion in breast cancer research. Watch as Nancy shares how her life’s work has affected hundreds of thousands of women.

A World Without Cancer and AIDS

A World Without Cancer and AIDS


Common sense dictates that there are only two major causes of human diseases: parasites and man-made chemicals. If we could eliminate these two causes, our body could, by itself, eliminate any diseases for good. The use of man-made chemicals, like antibiotics, in eliminating parasites does not accomplish this task.Man-made chemicals accumulate in the body causing long-term side-effects. Therefore, there is a need to avoid any form of man-made chemical treatments in favor of other alternative approaches.Before going any further, one must understand that the human body is fully equipped with built-in mechanisms to protect itself from parasitic infections and chemical imbalance, i.e. auto-immune system and homeostasis.The immune system is a complex defense mechanism which protects us from any parasitic infection, whether viral, bacterial, pathogenic, etc. Under optimal conditions, the immune system must be able to repel all viral and microbial attacks, or if not, will eventually learn to repel them in time.Homeostasis is the body’s self-regulating process which maintains chemical balance, among others, to maintain stability while dynamically adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival.The human body is also capable of self-regeneration to some degree, e.g. wound healing.This implies that wherever the wound is located, i.e. injured organs and tissues, it can be repaired through cellular regeneration. It can do so with higher efficiency when the body could concentrate more on the healing rather than on fighting off the infections or neutralizing bad chemicals. This is always the case because the human body’s ability to serve itself is directly limited to the amount of energy it can expend.Indeed, the human body is complete in and of itself, and should have the ability to survive indefinitely in a perfect environment. With good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate rest, we are assured of longer lifespans such as those biblical characters. However, with phys

This 6-Year-Old Donated Her Hair In Hopes Of Helping Young Cancer Patients Feel Like Royalty

While some girls dream of looking like a princess, this girl dreamed of making that wish come true for young cancer patients.

Charlie Tillotson, 6, of Sidmouth, England, had never gotten a haircut, and was passionate about protecting her long, golden locks, according to the Daily Star.

She has always wanted to grow it as long as Rapunzel,” her father said.

However, after watching a T.V. show about kids battling cancer, Charlie was inspired to chop off her locks for Little Princess Trust, an organization that donates wigs to young cancer patients. She also decided to raise money for Children With Cancer U.K. — a charity that aims to help children and teenagers fight cancer — through a fundraising page that her father helped her set up.

Charlie’s father, Steve Tillotson, said he was moved by his daughter’s request.

“She came up to me … and said, ‘Daddy, would you mind if I had all my hair cut off for children with cancer?'” Tillotson told the Sidmouth Herald. “I welled up.

Her haircut took 2 feet off her total length of hair, and will be made into a wig for a child with cancer, according to Metro. While the cut took place two weeks ago, Charlie has already said she wants to do it all over again once her hair has grown back, and bring a smile to another child’s face, the Daily Star reported.

Her fundraiser was also successful. Tillotson said he and his daughter originally set a goal of raising 600 British pounds (about $ 1,010) through their Just Giving page. The fundraiser more than doubled their goal, bringing in more than 1300 pounds (about $ 2,200).

Charlie’s good deeds did not go unnoticed. The town of Sidmouth is rewarding her by giving her a true princess treatment. Charlie will get her own float at the Sidmouth carnival, as well as a ball gown and tiara, according to the Sidmouth Herald.
