Girl Scout beat cancer at 16, now she's on a mission
Arshawna Warren got a shocking breast cancer diagnosis before she was old enough to drive a car. After a self exam turned up something abnormal, this teen went on to beat breast cancer. See how her diagnosis has been turned into a mission for teens everywhere. ************************************************************ Want even more heartwarming stories?! Subscribe to Humankind's YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/1IrNzUN Like Humankind on Facebook: http://bit.ly/fbhkvids ************************************************************ Dawn Kendrick, WKYC - TWINSBURG, Ohio -- Fighting breast cancer starts with early detection. We know that. But how early is early enough? How about when a breast cancer diagnosis comes before you're old enough to drive a car. That's the story of Arshawna Warren, a serious Girl Scout since she was 4-years-old. She had conquered camping, cooking and first aid. But it was a lesson that earned her no badge that saved Arshawna's life at just 16-years-old. It came from her scout leader, who happens to be her mom. Doctors had diagnosed Paula Warren with breast cancer. "She taught me its very important to be aware of my body, to check regularly," Arshawna said of her mom. "I was just doing a regular check like she taught me to do every other week and I felt something kinda like a rock in my breast. It took until after the surgery to find out I had breast cancer. It was probably the scariest thing I've ever gone through in my life," Arshawna confessed. She went from scared about her own life to saving the lives of others. "I figured why not put a workshop on for young people about young people getting breast cancer or any type of cancer," Arshawna said. "It's not too early to start checking." So she started Be Pretty in Pink and designed her own pamphlet for teens. This dynamo who turned her diagnoses into a solid campaign for "early, early" detection, said "no excuses." "It takes two seconds to check. You go around, you go around and you're done. If you have time to work out, you have time to check," she said with a smile. That kind of take charge, life saving, leadership landed her the Girls Scouts highest honor, the Gold Award. Self examination is a part of her regular routine for life now and The American Cancer society is saving lives now too with the pamphlets and program this young survivor designed. Arshawna said, "They said they have been putting on workshops and I've also been asked to speak at different events so the message is still getting out there."

Georgia teen creates website to help teens cope with a loved one's cancer
You could say Paola Berrios has been around the block as a Girl Scout, and she’s earned the badges to prove it. The Marietta, Georgia, 17-year old has been a Scout since the first grade. "Everybody, when they think about Girl Scouts, they say, 'Oh, do you sell cookies? Oh, you go camping in little pink tents?'” Berrios jokes. “ “No, there is so much to than it to that." But Berrios had no idea how much a badge, or a project, could mean until her mother, and closest confidante Maria Maldonado was diagnosed with breast cancer. "To say that it was a shock would be kind of an understatement,” she says. "I didn't know how to deal with it. I couldn't function for the longest time, because how could my mom have cancer?" Berrios, who is home-schooled, was able to go with her mom to her appointments at Wellstar Health System's Cancer Center, where Lisa Sherman, an oncology nurse and navigator works with patients facing breast cancer. "One of the first things they're concerned about is not them, or how they're going to get through treatment, but their family,” Sherman says. To help them cope, adults have support groups, and younger children play therapy. "But that teenage to middle school population, I hadn't come across anything that could be used, that could be relevant to them,” says Sherman. So, Berrios created The Shoulder to Lean On Project, a website to give teenagers facing a loved one's cancer diagnosis what she didn't have: a place to find advice, and information about what to expect. "I want kids to have a better experience than I did,” Berrios says. “Because I was alone, and I was afraid, and I didn't know what to do with myself. I don't want that to happen to anybody else." The website is written by teens, for teens. There is no medical jargon, and no frightening statistics, just hard-earned understanding. "I want to make a community where people feel safe, and people feel like they're going to be okay. It's hard. It sucks, but it's going to be okay." In April, Maria Maldonado was declared "cancer free." And their journey together has inspired Paola Berrios to apply to Agnes Scott College and Emory University, and eventually to medical school, to become -- you guessed it -- a cancer doctor. "This project kind of fostered a love of oncology for me, as morbid as that sounds,” Berrios says. “I've really been fascinated by it." "I can see her becoming an oncology doctor, and taking this experience and becoming an awesome one,” Sherman says. And, Paola Barrios has been nominated for the Girl Scout's highest honor: the Gold Award. It’s the ultimate patch for paying it forward.

Boy Scout earns 135 merit badges
A Hyde Park Boy Scout has accomplished what no one else in Cincinnati has ever done. The passion 12-year-old Eric Meeks carries comes from his grandmother. She died of breast cancer two years ago, when Meeks discovered his true determination. He wanted to honor his grandmother, so the scout started reading books. Eventually, he'd join the ranks of what only 252 other boys have accomplished in scouting. "One night I stayed up until 10 p.m. writing down all the requirements," Meeks said. His homework didn't stop there. Meeks' reading list also required paperwork - all on his plate while he held onto his Honor Roll status at The Summit Country Day School. Along with memories of his grandmother, Meeks had his dad to count on, too. "You know it was really an amazing journey to go to different camps and meet different people," Meeks' father said. Meeks reached his goal - 135 merit badges in under two years - a sash covered by badges on both sides. Now satisfied with his success, he says he'll look for ways to encourage others, keep playing football and volunteer as a scout leader.◂ WCPO - 9 On Your Side brings you the latest trusted news and information for the greater Cincinnati Tri-State area, including Northern Kentucky and Indiana.

Breast Cancer Surgery | Mastectomy and Lymphadenectomy | Breast Cancer awareness
www.medfreelancers.com Breast Cancer Surgery | Mastectomy and Lymphadenectomy | Breast Cancer awareness Breast cancer Specialty Oncology Symptoms Lump in a breast, change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, a newly inverted nipple, red scaly patch of skin Risk factors Female, obesity, lack of exercise, alcohol, hormone replacement therapy during menopause, ionizing radiation, early age at first menstruation, having children late or not at all, older age, prior breast cancer, family history, Klinefelter syndrome. Diagnostic method - Tissue biopsy Treatment - Surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy Breast cancer is cancer that develops from breast tissue. Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, a newly inverted nipple, or a red or scaly patch of skin. In those with distant spread of the disease, there may be bone pain, swollen lymph nodes, shortness of breath, or yellow skin. Risk factors for developing breast cancer include being female, obesity, lack of physical exercise, drinking alcohol, hormone replacement therapy during menopause, ionizing radiation, early age at first menstruation, having children late or not at all, older age, prior history of breast cancer, and family history. About 5–10% of cases are due to genes inherited from a person's parents, including BRCA1 and BRCA2 among others. Breast cancer most commonly develops in cells from the lining of milk ducts and the lobules that supply the ducts with milk. Cancers developing from the ducts are known as ductal carcinomas, while those developing from lobules are known as lobular carcinomas. In addition, there are more than 18 other sub-types of breast cancer. Some cancers, such as ductal carcinoma in situ, develop from pre-invasive lesions. The diagnosis of breast cancer is confirmed by taking a biopsy of the concerning lump.[1] Once the diagnosis is made, further tests are done to determine if the cancer has spread beyond the breast and which treatments it may respond to. The balance of benefits versus harms of breast cancer screening is controversial. A 2013 Cochrane review stated that it is unclear if mammographic screening does more good or harm. A 2009 review for the US Preventive Services Task Force found evidence of benefit in those 40 to 70 years of age, and the organization recommends screening every two years in women 50 to 74 years old. The medications tamoxifen or raloxifene may be used in an effort to prevent breast cancer in those who are at high risk of developing it. Surgical removal of both breasts is another preventative measure in some high risk women. In those who have been diagnosed with cancer, a number of treatments may be used, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and targeted therapy. Types of surgery vary from breast-conserving surgery to mastectomy. Breast reconstruction may take place at the time of surgery or at a later date.[15] In those in whom the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, treatments are mostly aimed at improving quality of life and comfort. Outcomes for breast cancer vary depending on the cancer type, extent of disease, and person's age. Survival rates in the developed world are high, with between 80% and 90% of those alive for at least 5 years. In developing countries survival rates are poorer. Worldwide, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in women, accounting for 25% of all cases. In 2012 it resulted in 1.68 million new cases and 522,000 deaths. It is more common in developed countries[3] and is more than 100 times more common in women than in men. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breast_cancer Please Subscribe, Like or share this Surgical Video.

Fishing Team Goes Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness on Lake Minnetonka
It's hard to miss Kevin Kerkvliet and Dean Kaminski. With matching pink shirts and the phrase "Save the TaTas" blazed along the sides of their high-end fishing boats, the two professional walleye anglers draw plenty of attention whenever they are on the water. "Nobody in the professional walleye circuit—or from the FLW bass tour, for that matter—has done something like this with breast cancer or any other nonprofit-type organization," Kerkvliet said. "My wife's mother died of breast cancer, so it gave us extra incentive to get the sponsorship worked out." Kerkvliet and Kaminski are part of the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour and travel around the country to fish in tournaments. They appeared on the Versus channel on July 31 and are on television four times each year as part of National Guard FLW Walleye Tour. This past Sunday, they spent most of the day on Lake Minnetonka, taking a half-dozen youngsters from Wayzata fishing for a few hours as part of an ongoing mission to get kids on the water. "Everything right now is a video game," Kaminski added. "They fish on a video game." "One of the things we're trying to do is get the kids outside," Kerkvliet said. After dropping the kids off, the pro anglers cruised over to Excelsior to meet with local women planning a "Save the Tatas" breast cancer fundraiser in Excelsior this October. Each Thursday, Excelsior hosts Minnesota's largest "Girl's Night Out," and on Oct. 6, Water Street will be lit pink in honor of the women and families affected by breast cancer. Details are still being hammered out, but Kerkvliet and Kaminski, along with their distinctive boats, are hoping to pitch in to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research. Patch will have additional details on the Oct. 6 Girl's Night Out event in the coming weeks.

Alex Shreeve Eagle Scout Project Timelapse
Hello, I hope you enjoy this video. My name is Alex Shreeve and I am a fourteen year old eighth grade student. I just completed my Eagle Scout project for Savannah's Organic Ranch In Aliso Viejo California. This is a charitable organization inspired by Savannah Sachen a young girl who died of cancer. It was her dream to create her own organic ranch. The organization now creates organic gardens at local schools to continue her legacy. My project is the first ever hanging wall garden for the ranch. My project was completed on March 8, 2014. I constructed a vertical wall with two rows of "woolly pockets" for plants to grow from. My project was combined with another eagle scout project that built and installed four planter boxes. These two projects will help fulfill Savannah's dream of creating and encouraging new ways to learn about gardening and nature.

Give Blood - Josh's Fight With Cancer
http://www.lifesouth.org When asked to describe his battle with cancer, Josh Webb’s pale blue eyes rolled up like he was searching for just the right words and then settles on just one. “Long,” he said, as he now approaches his third year in remission. “It was a lot of confusion, trying to figure out why this happened,” added his mom, Regina. And in the end, there was no explanation on why a healthy and active boy would come in from a day of play and mention his back ached. But the pain didn’t come from a spill from his bike or a fall from a tree or those other normal sources of childhood hurts, but a cancerous tumor that had latched onto his ribs, and was touching his spine, liver and lungs. The Webbs live in Palatka, Fla. and traveled to the large teaching hospital in Gainesville at the University of Florida for Josh’s treatment. It took multiple rounds of chemotherapy, six rounds of bombarding the growth with proton radiation and eventual surgery that removed a tumor the size of a grapefruit. During that long journey there were many, many blood and platelet donors who helped him live to fight another day, as his body weight dropped from 130 pounds to 70. “Sometimes two times a week,” added his grandmother DJ Huntley, explaining how often the transfusions came. And Josh said getting the transfusions, he was never alone, there were lots of other young people in the room connected to bags of red blood cells and platelets. “Every day they were packed,” he said. And that was a surprise for his mom and grandmother. Both are regular donors, both know personally how important it is. DJ said she got her start when she heard of a young girl who was critically burned and needed plasma. Regina said when her father went through a heart transplant, she was one of his blood donors. But in their minds, blood was still mostly for car accidents and other trauma victims. “You don’t think about how much blood and how many platelets cancer patients need going through chemo,” said DJ. Today, Josh is in middle school. Many of his old friends remember those hard days when he was sick. New ones may not have a clue, other than a sizable scar he carries on his back. His once bald head is now covered in thick light brown hair, he stands taller than mom and grandma and nearly tips the scales at 150 pounds. And unlike most of his classmates, he understands about the importance of blood donors, looks forward to the day he can be one and is already paying back and paying forward. When his scout troop hosted a blood drive, the shy soft-spoken young man was out by the bloodmobile trying his best to convince people to give. “People really need it,” he said.
