    Several drugs are scoring big wins against common cancers, setting new standards for how to treat many prostate, breast and lung tumors. There's even a "uni-drug" that may fight many forms of the disease. What's especially striking: The drugs are beneficial in some cases for more than a year, much longer than the few months many new drugs provide.   Here are some highlights from the world's largest cancer meeting, the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago:

    My wife has stage 4 metastatic cancer. She has battled this before and survived twice. This time the cancer has reached her brain and the doctors are a bit more apprehensive than before. Does anyone know about grants? All of her doctors are telling us to apply for grants to pay for her medicine. Any advice would be appreciated. I may not be able to respond right away, but I will do my best. Lots of planning and preparation on my part.

    Mammograms showing a normal breast (left) and a breast with cancer (right). Credit: Public Domain ============================================================================================================== Cancer cells often devise ways to survive even in the presence of toxic chemotherapy. Now, a research team led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) has found a way to attack a process that tumor cells use to escape the effects of standard cancer drugs. The discovery is published online today in the journal Nature Cell Biology. Cancer drugs are no longer limited to toxic chemicals that can cause significant side effects. Many are specially designed targeted therapies that seek out...
  • Worldwide cover-up of Abortion/Breast Cancer link continues to mount, plays catch-up

    It has been famously noted that facts—like the fact that abortion increases a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer (ABC link) — are stubborn things. One hopes that means that eventually, the truth always comes out. But along the way, we also see that necessity—like the political necessity to cover up the truth of the ABC link—is the mother of increasingly inventive ways to do just that. In fact, the latest technique is to resurrect a tired old bogeyman named “recall bias”, aka “response bias” or “reporting bias”, but in a particularly brazen way. The most recent study is yet...
  • Please pray for Heidi S.

    Please pray for Heidi Schmid, a 28 year old woman who I sadly discovered died last week of metastatic breast cancer. She worked as a pharmacy tech at the local Safeway where I pick up my prescriptions. She was with her family in Aurora, Colorado when she died and leaves two small children behind. I don't know if their father or grandparents are caring for them now. This is a truly evil disease in young women and deserves every bit of research money it can get. Please honor her memory with any contribution you can, especially now at Christmas. The...

    We’ve told you before about IceCure’s amazing tumor-freezing technology that destroys breast tumors by freezing them into ice balls. Now the company has set its sights on another killer – lung cancer. The Israeli biomedical company that pioneered the application of cryoablation (a process which uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue) as a treatment for benign breast tumors (fibroadenomas), intends to expand its technology to the treatment of lung cancer, with a new clinical trial to begin in Japan.Related articles The Israeli Blind Mole Rat May Hold The Key To Curing CancerIsraeli Doc Teaches Dogs To Sniff...

    Breast cancer screenings may not lead to fewer deaths but may lead to overdiagnosis, U.S. researchers suggest. In areas of the U.S. with high levels of screening, more tumors were diagnosed—but breast cancer death rates were no lower than in areas with fewer screenings, researchers report. “The mortality results that we observed are far from definitive,” cautioned Charles Harding, the study’s lead author from Seattle, Washington. “The most dramatic finding of our study is the immediately evident—and substantial—evidence of breast cancer overdiagnosis,” he told Reuters Health in an email. …

    April 21, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The American College of Pediatricians has made a statement advising women to be informed about the link between abortion and breast cancer – at the same time recognizing the medical establishment has been reticent to admit the connection.“Although the medical community has been reluctant to acknowledge the link, induced abortion prior to a full term delivery, and prior to 32 weeks of gestation, increases the likelihood that a woman will develop breast cancer,” the physicians' organization stated on April 7. “This risk is especially increased for adolescents.”“The American College of Pediatricians urges women to 'Know...

    AURANGABAD, Maharashtra, India, April 30, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Having an abortion makes women 180 percent more likely to develop breast cancer, according to a new study produced by a fellow at Johns Hopkins. Researchers studied 220 women in the city of Aurangabad, India, and found the odds ratio (OR) for developing breast cancer significantly increased with the number of abortions a woman had. “We observed strong positive association of positive family history in first degree relatives (OR- 3.1:95%CI, 2.12-5.03), number of abortions (OR- 2.8:95%CI, 1.82-5.12) and past history of benign breast disease (OR- 1.8:95%CI, 1.-3.03) in cases of breast...

    A team from a Spanish university has discovered what Egyptian authorities are calling the world's oldest evidence of breast cancer in the 4,200-year-old skeleton of an adult woman. Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said the bones of the woman, who lived at the end of the 6th Pharaonic Dynasty, showed "an extraordinary deterioration". "The study of her remains shows the typical destructive damage provoked by the extension of a breast cancer as a metastasis," he said in a statement on Tuesday. Despite being one of the world's leading causes of death today, cancer is virtually absent in archaeological records compared to...

    National Review ^ | 03/10/2015 | Joel Brind
    New studies show an alarming rate of the disease among women who have had abortions. Prominent abortion practitioner and promoter David Grimes bemoans that bumper stickers still warn that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer, even though, he asserts, that “theory . . . was debunked long ago.” So begins Grimes’s recent piece on the Huffington Post’s blog Healthy Living. “Long ago” was, though Grimes doesn’t say so, 1997 to 2008, when there flowed a stream of “debunking” publications — largely studies that were methodologically flawed — reporting that no abortion–breast cancer (ABC) link existed. They were effective in...

    Where to begin to expose the over-the-top dishonesty of abortion advocate Dr. David Grimes’ piece on abortion and breast cancer posted on Feb. 26 in the Huffington Post Blog (“Abortion and Breast Cancer: How Abortion Foes Got it Wrong“)? Not surprisingly Grimes begins by announcing dismissively that the abortion-breast cancer connection (ABC link) “was debunked long ago.” In truth, it is the denial that has been repeatedly debunked. Ironically, one of the key studies Grimes relies on as “a landmark prospective study of women in Denmark” to “prove” the ABC link is a myth is actually the largest and most...

    Abstract Here, we propose a new strategy for the treatment of early cancerous lesions and advanced metastatic disease, via the selective targeting of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a.k.a., tumor-initiating cells (TICs). We searched for a global phenotypic characteristic that was highly conserved among cancer stem cells, across multiple tumor types, to provide a mutation-independent approach to cancer therapy. This would allow us to target cancer stem cells, effectively treating cancer as a single disease of “stemness”, independently of the tumor tissue type. Using this approach, we identified a conserved phenotypic weak point – a strict dependence on mitochondrial biogenesis for...

    As a two-time breast-cancer survivor, Eve Sanchez Silver once supported the Susan G. Komen organization in her personal fight against a disease affecting hundreds of thousands of U.S. women each year.  But when she found out while serving on the group’s National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council that Komen was giving money to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s No. 1 abortion provider, she knew she had a problem.“Here was a breast-health organization — a very life-affirming organization, from my perspective — funding an organization that essentially kills people. I couldn’t understand why they thought that was okay.”  Sanchez Silver, a retired medical-research analyst...

    Planned Parenthood has a very important message for you this October in Breast Cancer Awareness Month: While they don’t do any mammograms despite what their CEO says, they do perform manual breast exams. Every year about this time the number one provider of abortions in the nation tries to show its “health care” side and convince women across the nation its services are priceless because they can feel your breasts and find lumps that may save your life. So can you. That’s right. Time and again, we learn that what Planned Parenthood does in its breast exam is what you...

He had found twelve recent studies in the medical literature, all carried out on the Indian subcontinent, that looked into whether there was a link between prior abortions and breast cancer. And all twelve found that women who had had prior abortions were at an increased...

    Women with breast cancer do not increase their survival chances by having a double mastectomy, researchers claim. They found women who only had lumps taken out followed by radiotherapy lived just as long as those who had both breasts removed. Researchers also point out that double mastectomies are major operations that take two months to recover from. By comparison, women who have lumpectomies—where only the tumor and nearby tissue are removed—usually get back to their daily routines within a few days. Earlier this year surgeons reported a surge in British women opting to have double mastectomies after Angelina Jolie decided...

By the time it was discovered that Jill Goodrum, 46, had the condition, it had spread to her lymph nodes and liver – and it was terminal. Her family said she had not criticised doctors for failing to spot the cancer earlier because it would have been so hard to detect. Jill’s daughter Lyndsey Todd, 27, said: “Mum never...

    Growing evidence confirms that abortions take more than an emotional toll on those who obtain them. A new study, completed in January and released at the end of April, finds that women who have had abortions are 180 percent more likely to develop breast cancer, confirming evidence found in a number of similar studies around the world. The study, led by Dr. Unmesh Takalkar, a consultant surgeon and chief medical director at United CIIGMA Hospital in India and an endoscopic surgeon and fellow at Johns Hopkins, focused on 220 women in Aurangabad, India, and found that the odds of developing...
