Creating Your Survivorship Care Plan After Breast Cancer Treatment
Following a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, survivors are often left to manage their follow-up care and face possible long-term side effects of their treatment. A Survivorship Care Plan can help make all of this more manageable. This session will provide concrete information on what a Survivorship Care Plan is, why it’s important and how it can help you adjust to life post-treatment. About the 2017 YSC National Summit in Oakland, CA: This national conference features the most up-to-date information about the unique needs of young women with breast cancer. Check out the official YSC National Summit: bit.ly/2rOsTWs About the Speaker: Mary Prishtina RN OCN, works at Alta Bates Summit Comprehensive Cancer Center in Berkeley California, as a Survivorship Nurse. Mary oversees the survivorship program, prepares and delivers survivorship care plans and facilitates the RENEW program - a 6 week series of returning to wellness after cancer which is held several times per year. Mary has been a registered nurse since 1993, with 15 years’ experience as an Oncology Certified Nurse specializing in Breast Cancer, Patient Navigation and Survivorship. She developed an interest in learning about management of side effects and promotion of wellness when caring for patients with ongoing needs at the end of treatment.

According to recent Harvard research, there is up to 50% reduction in chances for prostate cancer in people who regularly ate cooked tomatoes.

What Would I Eat If I Had Cancer?
Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz ***DOWNLOAD THIS RESEARCH DATA FROM THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: https://www.iarc.fr/en/publications/p... Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about what he would eat if you have cancer. Cancer is dependent on sugar metabolism (glycolysis). The uptake of glucose is 10-12 times more for cancer cells than normal cell. Glucose increases tumor growth. High blood sugars can increase the risk of breast cancer. PET scans detect where cancers are due to the fact that they eat sugar. WHAT TO DO: 1. Avoid all sugars 2. Consume cruciferous 3. Consume all organic foods 4. Garlic is the #1 food for cancer in that studies show the most positive impact. 5. Get a good amount of vitamin D from the sun.

Marlene King Discusses Metastatic Breast Cancer, Communicating with Her Doctor
Marlene King was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) in 2008 at the age of 48; at which time, she elected to have a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. After treatments the cancer seemed to be in remission. In 2011, the cancer returned and she decided it would be best to have to a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. However, one year later in 2012, Marlene was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer; the prognosis for life expectancy 4-36 months. During this time, Marlene decided to connect with METAvivor and overtime made it her priority to be an activist through the organization in raising awareness about the facts about metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer. She is currently a member of the METAvivor Board of Directors. METAvivor exists to sustain hope for those living with metastatic breast cancer.

Cancer Survivorship Care Plans: Who needs them and why?
Survivorship Care Plans In 2006 the Institute of Medicine issued a report recommending that every cancer patient receive an individualized survivorship care plan that includes guidelines for monitoring and maintaining their health. In response to that report, many groups have now developed various types of "care plans" to help improve the quality of care of survivors as they move beyond their cancer treatment. What's Next? Life After Cancer Treatment This care plan was developed by the Minnesota Cancer Alliance to help you record details of your cancer treatment, help you discuss post treatment needs with your health care provider, gain awareness of short and long term side effects post treatment and develop a plan to address needs and concerns of post treatment survivorship and follow-up care. Journey Forward This care plan is one that your doctor must fill out for you. It was created by a collaboration of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, the UCLA Cancer Survivorship Center, Wellpoint, Inc., and Genentech. Prescription for Living This plan was developed by a national group of nursing, social work, and survivor organizations, and other key stakeholders in 2006. The project was jointly sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Oncology Nursing Society, the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, American Journal of Nursing, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. ASCO Cancer Treatment Summaries The ASCO Cancer Treatment Plan and Summary, developed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, is a brief record of a person's cancer treatment. The forms provide a way for a survivors to store information about their cancer, cancer treatment, and follow-up care. The forms are also meant to give basic information about a survivor's care to future healthcare providers. LIVESTRONG Care Plan The LIVESTRONG Care Plan is a tool to help you work with your oncologist and primary healthcare provider to address the medical and psychosocial challenges that may arise post-treatment.

Cancer survivor stories: Be your own advocate | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
As a breast cancer survivor, Magnolia learned first-hand that primary care doctors are often unaware of the unique medical needs of cancer survivors. Learn how to establish an after-care plan: http://www.dana-farber.org/For-Adult-Cancer-Survivors/Experts-Speak-on-Survivorship-Topics/Establishing-a-Care-Plan-after-Cancer-Treatment.aspx Transcription: I was 33 years old, and I felt a pain under my arm. I then told a friend that I had this pain, and what was that saying about breast cancer? If you feel something and if it moves, you’re OK, and if it doesn’t move—some silly myth that I had no idea about, and she said, “I don’t care what the myth is. You should go get that checked.” The breast specialist did a biopsy on a Friday. By Monday morning, he called and stated that I had breast cancer. Part of the work I do is educating in particular people in communities of color about cancer. So many cancer survivors don’t know how important it is for them to be mindful about the long-term effects of the drugs they received, and as a cancer survivor, I had no idea about treatment summaries or aftercare plans until I got to Dana-Farber. I went through the Survivorship Clinic and was able to get my treatment summary and aftercare plan and sent it to my primary care doctor. I went to my follow-up as instructed, and he said, “Oh, I got some letters about you from Dana-Farber.” I said, “Yes. That’s partly why I’m here, because it’s part of an aftercare plan that I want to put in place.” He said, “What are these letters about? What is this about?” I said, “Well, it’s a treatment summary and aftercare plan, because having long-term effects, we want to be careful and mindful about certain things, and I’m going to need certain screenings and blood work every six months, heart monitoring.” “Oh, is that what it is?” So, I literally went to follow-up appointment and had to recite to him what the treatment summary letter content was and the aftercare plan. It was amazing to me, and I love my doctor and he’s fabulous, but that happened to me. Can you imagine? So, part of the work that we try to do here is helping primary care providers make survivorship issues a primary issue that they need to address when their patients come back to primary care. The opportunity to work here came, and I thought maybe having had cancer will [inform 02:37], but that’s not consciously why I came. You know, as live revolves—duh, I’m here, because I have an experience that will help people, and I need to channel that.

Cancer Survivor Stories: The Importance of Vigilance | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
After completing treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma, Kari continued her busy life. And then tests revealed she had breast cancer. Learn why it's important to have a care plan after cancer treatment: http://www.dana-farber.org/For-Adult-Cancer-Survivors/Experts-Speak-on-Survivorship-Topics/Establishing-a-Care-Plan-after-Cancer-Treatment.aspx Transcription: I was diagnosed in ’95 with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. My doctors were thrilled that it was an early-staged diagnosis, so at that point I was asked to participate in a study. What that study involved was instead of chemo, to do a course of mantle radiation only. I readily accepted and finished my six-week course of treatment in ’96. There was not a lot of information around survivorship at that point in time, so a lot of it came through self-education and self-advocacy. I came across a study that was done a few years later that said Hodgkin’s survivors who went through just a course of radiation versus chemo were now at a risk for secondary cancers, and as I understood it, it put me in the upper 90th percentile of getting breast cancer. I received a phone call from a friend of mine who was also a Hodgkin’s survivor who somehow became aware of the Survivorship Clinic and right away felt it was important for both of us to get into the clinic and start to be monitored. I would receive a mammogram along with an MRI at the same time—back to back—so that both screenings could be compared, so if there was something that was not caught on the mammogram, it would be caught on the MRI, and that would help us to monitor the breast cancer potential risks. And I felt that that was just very important to do everything I could to reduce all of the risk of getting cancer again. I found out about my breast cancer probably the third or fourth course of going through the mammogram and the MRI. We received a phone call that they did see something on the screening and that they would like for me to come back and do a biopsy. I was diagnosed with stage 2, grade 2, invasive ductal carcinoma, and I firmly believe that by participating in the Survivorship Clinic is what saved my life. I’m often asked, “Why do you think I got cancer?” And to me, that’s the wrong question—I don’t have answer for that. For me it’s, “Why did I survive?” And when I had that ‘aha!’ moment of defining ‘Why did I survive?’ to me it was OK to start using my voice. It was OK to start sharing my experience and my story. Stop questioning—well, who cares? Because now I understand that there’s a nugget in every story that’s shared, and somebody could walk away with just a little bit, and if that little bit can help them, then there’s my ‘why.’

Triple Negative Breast Cancer: What you need to know
We teach you why Triple Negative Breast Cancer is threatening. Learn how it is treated, and it's link to the BRCA genetic mutation. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. What exactly is triple negative breast cancer? 2. Will I need Chemotherapy? 3. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 4. Isn’t Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 5. Do I qualify for BRCA genetic testing? 6. Should I consider a Clinical Trial? 7. What is “Triple Negative” breast cancer? “Triple Negative” breast cancers are fast growing tumors that more frequently spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Because of this, they are a bigger threat to your life than most other types of cancers of similar size with a different receptor pattern. These cancers are called “triple negative” because the three most important breast cancer “receptors” on the surface of the cells are not present (negative). When present, these receptors are used as targets to attack the cancer with medications. When absent, the main medical therapy is chemotherapy. Your Breast Surgeon will know your “receptor pattern” within days after your initial breast biopsy. These results are often not communicated to you early on in your decision process. Although only 15% of breast cancers are “triple negative,” it is imperative that you specifically ask your surgeon immediately, and well before surgery, “What are my receptor results?” “Triple Negative” is treated with Chemotherapy These cancers are often sensitive to chemotherapy and it is offered to almost everyone healthy enough to tolerate it. Chemotherapy is obviously a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (pills). But unfortunately, since triple negative cancers do not have “Estrogen receptors” (ER negative), hormonal therapy is not helpful at all. The time to cure triple negative cancer is now, not when it recurs later. Chemotherapy and surgery is the standard for treating triple negative breast cancer. Ask about the benefits of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” What is often overlooked are the benefits of offering neoadjuvant chemotherapy for patients with triple negative, “Early-Stage” (I & II) breast cancer. There may be distinct advantages (listed below) to having chemotherapy before surgery, not after surgery if you have a triple negative tumor. The decision to consider neoadjuvant chemotherapy always begins with your breast surgeon. You must address this “cutting edge” treatment option well before surgery to benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Do not be afraid to ask. This is a very important question. The Potential Benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo: *Begin life-saving chemotherapy earlier *Reduce the need for a mastectomy *Improve cosmetic outcomes with a lumpectomy *Reduce the need for an “Axillary Dissection” *Allows more time for BRCA genetic testing *More time to think about “lumpectomy vs. mastectomy” *Shows your cancer team if the chemo is working *Can sometimes eliminate all cancer cells before surgery *May reduce the need for radiation after a mastectomy Ask for BRCA Genetic Testing Triple negative breast cancers can be associated with inherited genetic mutations. Any woman who has ever been diagnosed with a triple negative breast cancer at age 60 or younger is at a high risk for carrying the BRCA mutation. If you also have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer you are at an even higher risk. Unfortunately, genetic testing is often not offered for triple negative breast cancer patients. It is important to ask for BRCA Genetic Testing in this situation. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. African Americans are a higher risk for Triple Negative African American and women of West African descent are at a higher risk of developing triple negative breast cancers than most other ethnic groups. Thirty percent (30%) of all breast cancers in this group are triple negative. Younger women are at a higher risk for Triple Negative Women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer before 40 are at a higher risk for having triple negative disease when compared to older women. Any women diagnosed before the age of 50 qualifies for genetic testing and should consider genetic counseling. Ask if you would benefit from a Clinical Trial New therapies must be studied in clinical trials to make sure they are safe and effective at treating breast cancer. Ask your medical oncologist if they offer or recommend you participate in a clinical trial.

Aimée’s Plan │ Proton Therapy for Breast Cancer
http://www.sccaprotontherapy.com “Never in a million years” did Aimée foresee the kind of year that was ahead of her, after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Considering that it was a large tumor and that her age put her at high risk, the pragmatist knew what the odds of survival were—but she wasn’t about to let them stack up against her. She followed the advice of her uncle, a physician with knowledge on cancer treatment, who told her that she needed proton therapy. That advice and her own research took her to Dr. L. Christine Fang, a radiation oncologist at SCCA Proton Therapy Center in Seattle, Washington, with a plan that included preventing damage to her heart and lungs. Thanks to pencil-beam radiation, her heart is now full knowing that she’ll be around to watch her kids and grandkids grow up, and she can take a breath of fresh air knowing that she can enjoy life from here on out.

Genomic Testing in Breast Cancer: What You Must Know
We teach you about genomic testing and how these sophisticated tests can guide you to personalized therapies for your breast cancer. THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BreastCancerSchoolForPatients/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: *Do I qualify for an Oncotype DX genomic test? *If so, will you order genomic testing for me? *Would you order a genomic test before I see a medical oncologist? *Are there any other genomic tests that apply to me? *What is a genomic assay? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. OTHER GENOMIC TESTS: Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Test This assay of DCIS or “precancerous” breast cells may help identify some women who may not benefit from radiation therapy after a lumpectomy. Genomic Health Inc. is a leading personalized medicine company. More information is about this test is located (here). MammaPrint This genomic test is used for Stage I and II breast cancers to determine prognosis and survival. This test is now included in national guidelines for some with hormone sensitive breast cancers that are found to have a small amount of cancer in a few lymph nodes. It is also a genomic test for some without “node positive” breast cancer. Agendia is a leader in personalized and molecular cancer diagnostics. More information about MammaPrint is located (here). Endopredict EndoPredict is a 2nd generation genomic breast cancer recurrence test to assess for 10-year risk of cancer recurrence. This test also accounts for tumor size in helping determine if chemotherapy may be needed in early stage, favorable breast cancers. Myriad Genetics is global leader in genetic testing and personalized medicine. More information about Endopredict is located (here). Breast Cancer Index (BCI) This test is designed for women with favorable, early stage breast cancer who have been on hormonal therapy for 4 to 5 years. It can help determine if someone will benefit (or can avoid) five additional years of hormonal therapy, such as tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor. This test is not yet approved by the FDA. Medicare and some insurance companies may cover the cost. Biotheranostics is a molecular diagnostics company. More information about BCI is located (here). Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Breast Cancer Survivor - Cheryl's Envita Review
Cheryl’s life changed the day she found a painful lump in her breast. Her journey to finding treatment is one filled with heroism, inspiring hope for those seeking alternative treatment for their cancer. Cheryl started her journey by speaking with the surgeon who had recently treated Cheryl’s mother for her second bout with breast cancer. The surgeon went over the one-size-fits-all treatment plan that Cheryl would need to go through to treat her cancer. Right off the bat, Cheryl did not feel comfortable with the options given to her; the surgeon recommended 5 months of chemotherapy followed by surgery and 5 more weeks of daily radiation. It did not make sense to Cheryl that she would be poisoning her body, removing the tumor and then must go back to poisoning her body again. Cheryl reluctantly continued the conversation with the surgeon and they began to talk about her surgery and whether she would want a mastectomy or a lumpectomy. Cheryl assumed that if she received the mastectomy she would not need to continue with radiation afterward but when the surgeon corrected her mentioning that she would still need to do radiation with the mastectomy she said, “that is when they lost me”. This treatment protocol did not make sense to Cheryl and she began to look for alternative methods for treating her cancer. After doing a vast amount of research Cheryl concluded that she wanted to seek a provider that could “work with me on my own terms” and used a “more natural and holistic approach”. Cheryl looked at going outside the country for her treatment and began to feel overwhelmed by stress and fear associated with trying to find a suitable treatment protocol. Cheryl knew she was fighting against time and that she needed to start treatment before her cancer metastasized but it was very hard to find a clinic that worked for her, all the time her lump was getting bigger and more painful. Luckily Cheryl saw a Facebook advertisement for Envita and she decided to call. The staff was amazing, talking to Cheryl answering questions she had and within a week she had set up an appointment to visit Envita for a consultation. “I am very grateful there is something like Envita out here and that I was able to find them,” said Cheryl. From there Envita instituted a personalized treatment protocol that looked to not only treating Cheryl’s cancer but also treating the possible causes and agitators of it. Over time, tests began to show that the treatment was working and the inflammation and pain that was making it hard for Cheryl to live her life began to subside and eventually disappear. Cheryl thanks Envita for being there for her in her time of need and commends her doctors for keeper her regularly updated and comfortable during her time with Envita. “This is a place I don’t even mind being at every day,” said Cheryl, it is warm and comfortable. A place filled with hope, not like the sad sterile environment you think of with most treatment clinics. Cheryl says that she is very grateful that she found Envita and that “it is one of the few providers in the US that knows what they are doing, it’s very cutting edge and it makes perfect sense”.

Breast Cancer Survivor: Colleen's Diagnosis With No Insurance - Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood patient Colleen shares her story about being diagnosed with breast cancer and how Planned Parenthood helped her obtain breast cancer treatment in the early stages, despite having no insurance. Like Colleen, there are many women in need of breast health services. It's so important for all women to have access to breast cancer screenings and educational resources, which is why Planned Parenthood is expanding its Breast Health Initiative. The services and programs expanded through this initiative include grants for specialized follow up services like diagnostic mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies and more for women in need. Last year, Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses performed nearly 750,000 breast exams in health centers across the nation. Planned Parenthood's expanded breast health program will give more women access to lifesaving screenings, diagnostic services, and educational resources for breast cancer awareness.

COLLEEN: My name is Colleen Luther. The first time I went to Planned Parenthood was when I was 27 years old. I had found a lump in my breast and I was really close to ignoring it, but I figured better safe than sorry. I actually had no insurance at the time. I had just got laid off, so no one could take me. I was really close to ignoring it and then I remembered Planned Parenthood had a sliding scale, so that's why I went. TEXT: Last year, Planned Parenthood provided nearly 750,000 breast exams. COLLEEN: They performed the breast exam. She said, "Okay, it definitely looks suspicious, but given your age, it probably is nothing, but let's keep an eye on it. Let's make an appointment from one month from now." In the meantime, cut down on caffeine cause that could make your breast lumpy, cut down on this or that, and you know, she just gave me some things to do. So I went home, did all that, and a month later it was still there. So, Planned Parenthood actually found that problem and allowed me to take care of it in a timely fashion, which is everything with breast cancer. Thank you for saving my life. Thank you for providing such wonderful care. Thank you for taking me seriously when no one else would. Thank you for finding my cancer early enough so it could be cured.

Connecticut woman shares breast cancer survival story
WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - There are a number of ways women can detect breast cancer early. One Connecticut woman, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form, shared her story with Eyewitness News. “I have a high family history of breast cancer,” said Carmen Rodriguez. Doctors said breast cancer is not only the most common cancer among women, it’s also the second leading cause of death among women in the U.S. Rodriguez said she’s all too familiar with it. “We've lost a lot of family members both on the maternal and paternal side of the family,” she said. However, she said she used the losses as motivation to take command of her own health. She said she started getting mammograms at age 35. “Faithfully I do my mammograms,” Rodriguez said. “I do self-breast examinations, which is very important.” Because of her vigilance, she was able to fight a battle that was passed down to her. “I was diagnosed with what they call triple-negative breast cancer,” she explained, “which tends to be a very aggressive type of cancer.” Aside from her family history, Rodriguez said she had no signs it was coming. Her mammogram from the year before was perfectly clear. “Some breast cancers for unexplained reasons grow slowly over time,” said Dr. Jennifer Logan, a breast radiologist at Jefferson Radiology. “And others can be--within 2 months--could grow very rapidly.” The latter was Rodriguez’s case. “That tumor was growing rapidly and by me being vigilant, and going in to have that mammogram, and going in on a timely basis--we caught it on-time,” Rodriguez said. “There's lots of horror stories about how terrible it is to have a mammogram done,” Logan said. “The truth is, it's not the most comfortable thing but it's certainly worth the time and the discomfort to have a look and make sure that there's nothing starting there that we need to know about.” After all, Rodriguez said a mammogram could save a life. “If I would've been nonchalant about it and say, 'well I'm too busy I can put it off for a few months,’ it would have been life or death,” she said. For women with dense breasts, a second step is recommended. “[It’s a] screening breast ultrasound and that's basically using an ultrasound machine to scan the entire breast and look for unsuspecting disease,” Logan said. Now, Rodriguez said she’s celebrating her third year as a survivor. “Even though I've gone through a double mastectomy, even though I've gone through chemotherapy, you can't just relax,” she said. “I urge every woman to go get those mammograms. Don't procrastinate, do not wait. Just listen to that little voice and stay healthy!” For more information about Jefferson Radiology, visit www.jeffersonradiology.com.
