Giovedì 19 settembre 2013

Bonnie J. Addario (www.lungcancerfoundation.org)

sarà ospite al The Steve Harvey Show, importante trasmissione televisiva nazionale americana.

Bonnie J. Addario (www.lungcancerfoundation.org)

will be on a major television show,  The Steve Harvey Show, this coming thursday (09/19) with one of their young lung cancer patients.

 If you can’t view it on Thursday, there will be a link on the website after the show airs.

Dear Walce,

Selma
Schimmel

Founder &
CEO
In just a couple of days, the oncology
community of physicians, scientists and researchers,
allied medical professionals, advocates, the
pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, and others,
will gather in Chicago, for the 49th Annual Meeting of
the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
This annual meeting will bring together 30,000 cancer
specialists from around the world, presenting
educational sessions, posters, and as many as 5000
abstracts, sharing data and the results of clinical
trials and research on a global scale.  It is at
such meetings where shared discoveries will often lead
to new standards and practice-changing patient care,
innovation, and hope.
ASCO 2013 marks the 15th Year that Vital Options
has been privileged to be amongst selected media
reporting from the Annual Meeting.  In 1998, when
the Annual Meeting last took place in Los Angeles,
The Group Room?
, was the first radio
show allowed to broadcast live from the ASCO
floor.  That was a true milestone for Vital Options
and demonstrated the commitment of ASCO on behalf of
patient outreach and partnership.  Please visit
ASCO’s oncologist-approved cancer information website
at Cancer.net.
The Group Room and other Vital
Options programs are now in a video format, but we
continue reporting on the latest scientific findings,
clinical advances, human interest stories, and the
progress being made by cancer advocates throughout the
country.
 
Advocacy In Action? at ASCO
has expanded to three topics, the Genomics of
Metastatic Cancer
, Palliative Care, and
the latest Lung Cancer Treatment Guidelines &
Molecular Testing.
  This show allows leaders
of the advocate community to engage in discussions with
academic oncologists, exploring how advocacy and science
intertwine, and taking on issues that really matter from
the patient’s point of view.
This year’s ASCO meeting theme is Building
Bridges to Conquer Cancer.
  We hope to bring
you back some great videos showing how the bridges are
truly being connected through our growing knowledge and
understanding of molecular biology and cancer, and the
importance of integrative oncology care!
Until soon
then.
Best of
wishes,

A Worldwide View Of
Palliative Care

These
interviews were filmed with doctors around the
globe at the European Society for Medical
Oncology (ESMO)
2012 Annual Meeting in
Vienna.

Each
doctor was asked the following question:

Data
in advanced cancer shows that palliative care
given concurrently with standard anti-cancer
treatment; extends life and reduces
hospitalizations.  How should this evidence
from the Temel Study be integrated in oncology
care today?

These
are their answers.

Avva Ask Logo

The Group Room and
Advocacy In Action
video content can now be
found on the new Avva Ask
App!
Avva Ask? is the
essential app for cancer patients. It’s a voice
recorder and health information organizer that’s
simple, free, and easy to use. Record voice memos
or entire visits with your doctor quickly and
easily, and play them back at any time. For each
treatment or other health event you enter into the
app – whether it’s a biopsy, chemotherapy, or
other treatment – you can access educational
materials, see tips from other users on managing
side effects, and make a list of questions for
your doctor about that treatment based on our
suggestions, and note down answers, whether typed
or audio recorded.
Avva Ask? is the
second mobile app developed by Avva, founded by
Stanford University graduate students with the
guidance of physicians at the Stanford Cancer
Institute. The app does not require you to sign up

Advocacy In Action? at
ASCO

Dear Silvia,

Selma
Schimmel

Founder &
CEO
In just a couple of days, the oncology
community of physicians, scientists and researchers,
allied medical professionals, advocates, the
pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, and others,
will gather in Chicago, for the 49th Annual Meeting of
the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
This annual meeting will bring together 30,000 cancer
specialists from around the world, presenting
educational sessions, posters, and as many as 5000
abstracts, sharing data and the results of clinical
trials and research on a global scale.  It is at
such meetings where shared discoveries will often lead
to new standards and practice-changing patient care,
innovation, and hope.
ASCO 2013 marks the 15th Year that Vital Options
has been privileged to be amongst selected media
reporting from the Annual Meeting.  In 1998, when
the Annual Meeting last took place in Los Angeles,
The Group Room?
, was the first radio
show allowed to broadcast live from the ASCO
floor.  That was a true milestone for Vital Options
and demonstrated the commitment of ASCO on behalf of
patient outreach and partnership.  Please visit
ASCO’s oncologist-approved cancer information website
at Cancer.net.
The Group Room and other Vital
Options programs are now in a video format, but we
continue reporting on the latest scientific findings,
clinical advances, human interest stories, and the
progress being made by cancer advocates throughout the
country.
 
Advocacy In Action? at ASCO
has expanded to three topics, the Genomics of
Metastatic Cancer
, Palliative Care, and
the latest Lung Cancer Treatment Guidelines &
Molecular Testing.
  This show allows leaders
of the advocate community to engage in discussions with
academic oncologists, exploring how advocacy and science
intertwine, and taking on issues that really matter from
the patient’s point of view.
This year’s ASCO meeting theme is Building
Bridges to Conquer Cancer.
  We hope to bring
you back some great videos showing how the bridges are
truly being connected through our growing knowledge and
understanding of molecular biology and cancer, and the
importance of integrative oncology care!
Until soon
then.
Best of
wishes,

Advocacy in Action

A Worldwide View Of
Palliative Care

These
interviews were filmed with doctors around the
globe at the European Society for Medical
Oncology (ESMO)
2012 Annual Meeting in
Vienna.

Each
doctor was asked the following question:

Data
in advanced cancer shows that palliative care
given concurrently with standard anti-cancer
treatment; extends life and reduces
hospitalizations.  How should this evidence
from the Temel Study be integrated in oncology
care today?

These
are their answers.

Avva Ask Logo

The Group Room and
Advocacy In Action
video content can now be
found on the new Avva Ask
App!
Avva Ask? is the
essential app for cancer patients. It’s a voice
recorder and health information organizer that’s
simple, free, and easy to use. Record voice memos
or entire visits with your doctor quickly and
easily, and play them back at any time. For each
treatment or other health event you enter into the
app – whether it’s a biopsy, chemotherapy, or
other treatment – you can access educational
materials, see tips from other users on managing
side effects, and make a list of questions for
your doctor about that treatment based on our
suggestions, and note down answers, whether typed
or audio recorded.
Avva Ask? is the
second mobile app developed by Avva, founded by
Stanford University graduate students with the
guidance of physicians at the Stanford Cancer
Institute. The app does not require you to sign up
for an account or submit any personal information,
and all information you save is secure and
anonymous.To learn more or download the
