Nurse Serenades Patient with Special Song || ViralHog
Occurred on October 25, 2017 / Nashville, Tennessee, USA "My best friend Margaret was in the hospital at Vanderbilt Hospital. She was being tested to see if she was strong enough to get a liver transplant due to cancer in her liver. She was having a test ran and I couldn’t be there because my 5-year-old daughter was having surgery at Vanderbilt children’s. Margaret had a reaction to her rest, so Olivia, her nurse, stayed with her while I was taking care of my daughter. When I returned to Vanderbilt to be with Margaret, she told me about an angel that was taking care of her. That angel was Ms. Olivia and she sang the song to Margaret over and over. She learned it just for Ms. Margaret. I videoed Ms. Olivia singing it to Margaret. I was crying the whole time she was singing it. Ms. Margaret found out she was too sick to get the transplant. The doctors then gave Ms. Margaret just days to live. She passed 9 days later. It was a beautiful moment when I videoed Ms. Olivia singing that to Ms.Margaret. It was just so touching and a beautiful thing to witness a nurse taking care of her patients in that manner. I was friends with Ms. Margaret for 17 years."

The LCL Sub is the former Louisville & Nashville Railroad (L&N) "Short Line", originally the Louisville, Cincinnati & Lexington Railroad. On the (default) north camera can be seen the signal at the south end of La Grange siding, at milepost 27.0, and the siding is 8,330 feet in length (the north end of the siding is at milepost 28.8). In regards to that signal and approaching northbound trains, if the train is lined into the siding the signal with have a red-over-lunar (white) aspect, and if it's lined through on the main track the signal with display either a green-over-red or yellow (amber)-over-red aspect. The town gets 20-25+ CSX freight trains daily. It’s a designated quiet zone, but the crew can use the horns at their discretion. The speed limit for trains as they enter the street-running portion is 10 miles per hour (MPH), until the engines have cleared said street-running, at which point they are allowed to increase their speed to 20 MPH. There is no Amtrak service here. The last regularly scheduled passenger train on this line was the L&N's "Pan-American" in 1971. There is an ATCS layout available, but there is no server (data) coverage available, as CSX has transitioned away from radio code line (RCL) for switch-and-signal control, to satellite for switch-and-signal, with cellular/telephony backups.

Precision medicine is the future of cancer treatment
Precision, or personalized, medicine has often been regarded as the future of cancer treatment. In this interview, Howard Burris, MD, FACP, FASCO, of the Sarah Cannon Research Institute, Nashville, TN, outlines the many benefits and uses of precision medicine, ranging from dissecting the biology of metastatic tumors to accumulating information for clinical trials. Dr Burris explains why he advocates for methods such as next-generation sequencing rather than PET scans and other less informative tests, and mentions some of the types of cancers that are already being investigated using this new precision medicine approach. This interview was recorded at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2018 Annual Meeting, held in Chicago, IL.

Lymphoma Clinical Trials NY | Cancer Treatment | Cancer Center | Weill Cornell Lymphoma Program
http://cornell-lymphoma.com/ Some of the most advanced Lymphoma Cancer Clinical Trials in New York are offered by the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital. Weill Cornell offers the latest in lymphoma treatments, often optimized to enhance efficacy and reduce side-effects, while also offering one of the largest portfolios of lymphoma clinical trial options in the world. The Center offers comprehensive lymphoma treatment with compassionate and personalized care. Many treatment regimens allow patients to avoid chemotherapy altogether, and the team makes every effort to provide new treatment options for those patients in situations where standard therapies are not effective. Weill Cornell has a strong collaboration between the patient care team, lymphoma clinical trial staff and laboratory scientists in order to bring the latest insights in lymphoma to patients. The affiliation with New York Presbyterian Hospital, one of the best hospitals in the U.S., provides Weill Cornell patients with access to the same high quality care in other medical specialties (such as cardiology, neurology and gastroenterology) should complications arise during treatment. Between their cutting-edge, innovative lymphoma therapies, a vast array of lymphoma clinical trials, and strong connection to New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell represents an unparalleled option for those seeking lymphoma cancer treatment not only in New York, but for those from elsewhere in the country and the world. For more information on the Weill Cornell Medical College and their Lymphoma unit, click the link below http://youtu.be/8nonh_l8uzI What do you say to somebody who saved your life, that gave me my life back? Weill Cornell has a very broad portfolio of clinical trials. Really, we are working with collaborators across the country, across the world, and really understanding and knowing and moving the field forward and bringing to our patients the best treatments, the newest drugs that are out there, different options, in some cases, less toxic treatment. I was on borrowed time. I was really on borrowed time. I met Dr. Furman and he said to me, "You are a candidate for one of the trials. It's worked with a lot of other patients that I have." He said, "So I don't see why it's not going to work with you." He says, "If it does, you'll be dancing in five weeks." What I think is really so important for CLL is not to cure patients, but to make the CLL go into remission and stay in remission, and be easily controlled with something as simple as a pill a day that's well tolerated, really, truly making CLL a chronic disease. Getting from the time that he gave me the trial to being, I'd say, about 90% back to normal took maybe another two months. But it was completely different. At least, my life was given back to me. Otherwise, it would have been over. Weill Cornell is such a large research center which focuses on everything from the bench to the bedside really affords us an opportunity to treat patients with drugs and trials and ideas that are really quite novel. When you look at the past 15 years, virtually every single lymphoma drug that's been approved by the FDA for treatment of patients with lymphoma has been developed in part at Cornell, and that means that our patients here have had access to these drugs, in general, often years before they've become widely available. One of the benefits of being treated at Weill Cornell and New York Presbyterian is that we are part of really one of the best hospitals in the world. When people are diagnosed with cancer, they often need care not only from their oncologist, but they might need a cardiologist or another specialist. When making the decision to go to Weill Cornell, knowing that a general hospital was attached to it, that was, by far, a priority because through chemo, there are so many other things that can happen to you. The lymphoma group works as a team, and I think one of its strengths is that we work individually, but also collectively.

Latest live video: Nurse singing dying patient’s favourite song touches millions
Nurse singing dying patient’s favourite song touches millions. Tear-jerking video of a Nashville nurse giving comfort to a dying patient A Nashville nurse is being called ‘an angel’ after a video of her comforting a cancer patient went viral. The video taken at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, shows nurse Olivia Neufelder comforting Margaret Smith by singing her favourite song, Dancing in the Sky by Dani and Lizzy. The 63-year-old patient had been battling liver cancer for a year and just learned that she was too weak to survive a transplant. Neufelder decided to sing to Smith to cheer her up. At one point, the nurse is seen wiping her own tears as both of them become visibly emotional, and tells Smith to smile and sing along to the chorus. The video was posted on Oct. 23 by Smith’s best friend, Crystal Hamilton Roberts, and has since reached over 13 million views. In a Facebook post she wrote, “she would sing this to Margaret whenever Margaret asked her. Never would Olivia ever say give me a minute, I would but I don’t have time.” Smith passed away two days later. Her wish was to play that song at her funeral. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with funeral expenses.

Nashville actors, musicians and athletes gather to raise money for cancer research
(28 Feb 2017) NASHVILLE ACTORS, MUSICIANS AND ATHLETES GATHER TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER RESEARCH Some of Nashville's biggest celebrities have been touched by cancer or know someone who has, which is why they are helping to raise money for cancer research. Multi-platinum singers from George Strait and Brad Paisley to Grammy nominee Kelsea Ballerini joined together with TV stars from the show "Nashville" and more on Monday (27 FEB. 2017) at the Nashville Honors Gala benefiting the T.J. Martell Foundation. Proceeds benefited leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. People could donate on hundreds of items and watch performances by musicians. Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels said he is a cancer survivor, thanks to his doctor, Dr. Joseph Smith, who was also receiving an award that night. "About 15 years ago, I think that he - Dr. Smith - treated me for cancer and I have been cancer-free that whole time, so yes it's very special to me. Very special," said the 80-year-old. Kelsea Ballerini, who is nominated for two awards at the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards in April, said she met a teenage cancer patient who was very inspiring to her. "I went to St. Jude for the first time a couple of years ago and I met a girl named Ali, who was 16 at the time and was battling cancer and just fell in love with her story and the way that she was just so positive and I don't know, I just... I fell in love with her, and so I think she's probably the closest person to me that has been through that," Ballerini said. "And so kind of everything that I do now that involves that, I kind of think of her and that's what makes me do it." Olympic gold medal skater Scott Hamilton has battled cancer a few times over his life, including brain tumors and testicular cancer. His foundation is opening a new proton therapy treatment center in Tennessee for cancer patients. "So our platform at the Scott Hamilton Cares Foundation is we really want to advance treatment options that treat the cancer and spare the patient," Hamilton said. "So proton therapy is huge and immuno-therapies and targeted therapies are fantastic. So that's what we're all about." Actor Charles Esten was the host of the event, but many of fans of the TV show "Nashville" were recently surprised by the sudden death of character Rayna James, portrayed by actress Connie Britton. Esten said Britton's departure from the show was a difficult episode for him. "We all get that it's a fictional character, but sometimes fictional characters for all of us find their way into your hearts and their way into your lives. Rayna James was one of those, so for a lot of people it's been very difficult, and we get that," said Esten. "As difficult as it was for any of them, or was for them, believe me it was the same way for us. Shooting this last episode - that was the most difficult episode I have ever done, most difficult scenes I have done of anything ever." Esten's daughter is also a survivor of leukemia and he said he believes that these fundraisers are key to saving lives. "My wife and I have a daughter who when she was 2 and half was diagnosed with leukemia - Addie. And Addie is extremely happy, healthy, very strong girl right now; in her junior year of high school; incredible soccer player. We know that came, yes from prayer, but also people before us that had done research and that research was sponsored by people that did events like this, that raised money. Any way I can be a part of that, I am always happy to. And that doesn't even begin to touch on the type of nights these are with the incredible people that are here to honor the people that we are honoring."

News Story About Treating Breast Cancer With Hyperthermia
Channel 4 News in Nashville Tennessee reporting on hyperthermia in the treatment of recurrent breast cancer. Hyperthermia therapy is a treatment used in battling cancer by heating tumors. The Heating is about as warm as a hot tub. Research has shown that heat can damage or kill cancer cells in some tumors while also making radiation and chemotherapy more effective. While it has been known for hundreds of years that fevers can kill cancer, only recently has technology been developed that can control and focus heat specifically on tumors. Local hyperthermia treatment (heat applied to a very small area, such as a tumor) is a well-established cancer treatment. Primary malignant tumors have a bad blood circulation, which make them more sensitive to changes in temperature. "Our own clinical experience and the results of numerous published studies are highly encouraging in that increased use of hyperthermia will improve the quality of life for cancer patients and improve control of cancer recurrences." Dr. Gerald Sokol, New Hope Cancer Center, Hudson, FL. "Hyperthermia is offering our patients new hope. We are often seeing faster responses, better cancer control, and fewer side effects." Dr. Leland Rogers, GammaWest, Salt Lake City, Utah "Hyperthermia gives us a method to treat people when there are few other alternatives. It's an additional form of treatment that can be done in difficult cases, usually without serious side effects or complications." Dr. Steven Stroup, Centennial Hospital, Nashville, Tenn. "When the tumor is of larger size, it is unresectable surgically. Also, radiation has less effect on the center part of the tumor, which is deprived of the oxygen blood supply and the nutrients. By increasing the temperature of the tissues from 42-44 degrees centigrade, (hyperthermia) increases the circulation, increases the oxygenation, so that the radiation is more effective." Nasir Syed, Long Beach Memorial Center, Long Beach, CA

Students Defying Stereotypes by Helping Cancer Patients -- Saint Thomas Health
Maplewood High School in Nashville, Tennessee is notorious for making headlines in the news. One example from the local ABC affiliate: “134 arrests made at Maplewood H.S. since August”. The administration and teachers work hard every day to change the negative reputation of the school and its students. A handful of students in Mr. Dale Rehn’s class are fed up with the stereotypes too. So, they’re doing something about it. A group of sophomore girls want to shout it from the roof tops that it’s not all gloom and doom at Maplewood. There are many good, hard-working students trying to make a difference in the world. Keirstin Smith, Kateriah Knox, Jahkaya Foxx, Janeisha Powell, and Deja Moore, along with their teacher Dale Rehn, came up with the idea of knitting hats for cancer patients at Saint Thomas Health, a part of Ascension Tennessee. As part of the school’s community benefit partnership, the students are given tours of the hospitals to visit patients. During one of the tours, Kateriah saw a stack of knitted hats at the hospital’s volunteer office and asked about them. When the Director of Volunteer Services Ashley Harold told Kateriah the hats are for the cancer patients, she asked Mr. Rehn if they, the students, can learn how to knit. Without hesitation, Mr. Rehn said yes! Watch how these dedicated students are making a difference learning to knit hats and then hand delivering them to the patients at Saint Thomas West Hospital. Nothing Shall Be Impossible.

Carolyn’s Ovarian Cancer Story | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Carolyn was diagnosed with recurrent ovarian cancer. She describes her care and recovery at Dana-Farber, and how that experience has inspired her to become an oncology nurse. Learn more about how the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber treats patients like Carolyn who have ovarian cancer or other gynecologic cancers: http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Gynecological-Cancer-Treatment-Center.aspx Transcription: Carolyn: My name is Carolyn. I grew up in Boston all my life, and I am a huge Red Sox fan and Patriots fan. In January of 2012, I began nursing school in Nashville, Tennessee. Text: Something didn’t feel right. Carolyn: I began experiencing symptoms of what I thought were a urinary tract infection and was told I needed to go for a CT scan. I came back and received a call from my primary telling me that neither she nor the radiologist were really… They were unsure of what they were looking at. There were masses throughout my abdomen. A couple of days later, after a biopsy, I was told that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. I met my team from Dana-Farber who ultimately performed the surgery, and then I went on to have six rounds of chemotherapy. I spent the next year or so really recovering from chemotherapy and really just tried to put my life back together and go on living normally. I was getting ready to start school in September 2014 when I started experiencing symptoms that just didn’t feel right. I found there was, in fact, a mass on my colon. It was really discouraging to find out that my cancer was back, but I was also really confident in the care that I was receiving. My doctors had always been up front with me that a recurrence was a possibility. Text: Carolyn was offered a clinical trial for women with recurrent ovarian cancer. Carolyn: I was able to take part in using this ACE-inhibitor, which is traditionally for breast cancer patients, but they had found a link between this working for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. So, I am benefitting from the very research that Dana-Farber does here. Dana-Farber is really like a second home to me. It’s weird to say that I look forward to coming here, but I really do. I can’t say enough about the doctors and the nurses that have cared for me. They’re just wonderful people, and I consider them sort of family now. When I was in nursing school, I used to think I knew what kind of nurse I wanted to be, and after being here at Dana-Farber and seeing the care that I’ve received, I really know what a good nurse is now. My hope is to become an oncology nurse. I would really like to work in the field that I’ve been so immersed in for the last three years.

Webinar: The Role of the Social Determinants of Health in Promoting Health Equity
Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council and the National Center for Medical Education, Development and Research, this webinar was held on Monday, August 20, 2018. The impact of factors such as housing, socioeconomic status, education, social support, and safety have been well documented as key influencers of a patient’s health and response to treatment. In fact, they may have more influence over health outcomes than access to medical services alone. This webinar will provide an overview of the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and describe how these determinants promote health equity. The relationship between SDOH and implicit bias will be explored. Participants will also learn how cultural humility may be used to address unconscious biases. Speakers: · Darlene M. Jenkins, DrPH, CHES, Senior Director of Programs, National Health Care for the Homeless Council, Nashville, TN · Katherine Y. Brown, EdD, Director, Communities of Practice, National Center for Medical Education, Development and Research, Dept of Family and Community Medicine, Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN · Aramandla Ramesh, PhD, Associate Professor, Biochemistry and Cancer Biology, School of Medicine, Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN · Barbara DiPietro, PhD, Senior Director of Policy, National Health Care for the Homeless Council, Baltimore, MD

Dr. Eric Liu Gives Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patient His Life Back
In 2011, Charles Sykes was diagnosed with carcinoid tumors of the small intestines, a slow-growing cancer that often affects the digestive tract. His medical case was presented for review at tumor board in Nashville, TN and Dr. Eric Liu - a surgical oncologist specializing in neuroendocrine tumors - knew he could help. After performing Charles' surgery, Dr. Liu moved to Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver, CO. So, when Charles' cancer returned in 2017, he "...knew right then that Dr. Liu was the man I wanted to see." He made the trip to Denver and Dr. Liu performed a second surgery to remove the new tumors. Over the past 25 years, Charles has been hospitalized more than 10 times and says the staff and care he received at Presbyterian/St. Luke's was "top notch." He credits Dr. Liu for giving him his life back and highly recommends him to anyone suffering from neuroendocrine tumors.

We are seeking financial help so she can continue to receive medical treatments at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer 8 years ago, at the age of 44. She has been fighting this disease for so long, that they can no longer afford all the expenses associated with treatment, traveling, and medications. Over the past 8 years, this terrible disease has caused a tremendous drain on the family, both mentally, physically and financially. She may not be able to receive the needed treatments if we don't find a way to raise money for her continued care. My mother has not only had to fight the disease, but also has faced many obstacles along the way because she did not receive the proper medical treatment in the beginning. In 2006, she had a lumpectomy to remove a DCIS & also received 38 rounds of radiation to her left chest area. In 2008/2009, she was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy & started reconstruction. She received 8 months of different chemotherapy drugs, including Adriomycin, Cytoxan, Taxol, and Taxotere. She was very ill during her treatment, and lost all her hair. In 2009, she had reconstructive surgery. She has also had numerous surgeries in addition to these. She had to have ports put in chest twice. She has had to have 2 lumps removed from the left side of chest. In 2012, she had another reconstructive surgery because an MRI showed there was a rupture in her right implant. The surgeon also found left over breast tissue that had to be removed. During the summer of 2012, the PET scan showed that the cancer had spread to several areas. So my mother went through chemotherapy again. The doctors tried to shrink the tumors before surgery, but the chemo did not help much. This time she was given Gemcitabine and Carboplatin In October of 2012, our mother had surgery to remove lymph nodes under arm. The surgeon said she was full of cancer. It had spread so bad that it was inside and outside all the lymph nodes they removed. The cancer was also in all the flesh, veins, & muscle they removed. The surgeon could not get it all, and left several inoperable tumors around her brachial plexus and 3 lymph nodes in her neck. The surgeon closed her up, and told our family that she was terminal, and there was nothing else they could do. He said he was sorry. So in January and February of 2013, our mother received radiation again. The doctors said you should never radiate the same area twice, but the cancer would do worse than the radiation. If they had to operate on the tumors around her brachial plexus, which is the nerves and artery supplying blood to you arm, that they would most likely have to amputate her arm. And since she was terminal, they did not want to put her through this. Numerous doctors at Vanderbilt have told her that the goal of treatment is Quality of life, not Quantity. My mother was put on a clinical trial last year. In December of 2013, the CT scan showed she had 15 tumors in her liver. It turns out, she was getting the placebo instead of the real drug. So they started the real medication in January. But then she had complications with lungs and had to be taken off of it. She developed pleural effusion, which means fluid builds up in the lining of the lung. They initially drained over 3 pounds of malignant fluid off left lung. After doing this several time, they put a chest tube in so she could drain the fluid out at home every 2 days. They say she is now developing fluid in right lung also. And the last count showed she had 25 tumors in her liver. The doctors had to change her chemo once again, so she has been taking 7 pills a day call Xeloda for months, hoping it would slow the growth of the tumors. Her scans last week showed that the tumors are all growing, and there are more of them. She also has more tumors in liver and lungs, and the others grew since last scan. She has several other tumors throughout her body. Our mother had an appointment to start chemo, but was unable to go due to finances. She needs to go to Vanderbilt to get a new chemotherapy once a week, and they are going to biopsy her liver. She is hoping to be able to go next week, and they are working with her to switch her appointments around.
