Breast Cancer Sisters - Mayo Clinic
Twelve-percent. That's the risk most women have of getting breast cancer in their lifetime. But if you test positive for one of two known breast cancer genes, that risk shoots up to as high as 80-percent. The sisters you're about to meet tested positive for a breast cancer gene. But they chose different ways of dealing with that information. That's good news, because it means if you have the gene and want to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer, you have options.

UK Charity Breast Cancer Now Delivers Powerful Message in '2050' Ad Campaign
Great Guns and Director Duncan Christie deliver a heart wrenching and moving campaign film, ‘2050’, to promote and raise funds for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now. The film follows a young girl on a secret mission – the purpose of which isn’t revealed to the viewer until the very end. Over a series of days, we see the tiny trooper determinedly studying complex science textbooks, watching quantum theory videos, and raiding the house for objects to use in her special project. In the final reveal, the girl wakes up her mother, who has breast cancer - and leads her inside a ‘time machine’ that she has made from cardboard and household items. As mother and daughter sit in the makeshift machine together, the girl turns the dial from 2017 to 2050.

Stanford breast cancer care:  Anne Broderick's story
By the time Anne Broderick was diagnosed with breast cancer, her grandmother, her aunt, her mother, two sisters, and a brother had already been found to have some form of cancer. Instead of a double mastectomy, Broderick’s tumor was removed with a far less invasive surgery called lumpectomy, which removes only the tumor, leaving the breast intact as much as possible. She assumed she would have the same radiation treatment her sister had had. However, Stanford doctor Kate Horst, MD, presented her with a new treatment option in which radiation could be given in just five days, not weeks.

How do you beat Breast Cancer - removing your healthy breasts or...?
This year three sisters, all vibrant, young women, may have their perfectly healthy breasts removed in the hope of saving their lives. They've all been tested positive for BRCA2, a genetic malfunction, and inherited gene disorder that means they are at a significantly higher than normal risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer before they turn 50. They are all now going through the pain and heartache of having to make a decision to remove their breasts now whilst they are young and healthy and have no symptoms of cancer or wait until cancer sets in. Choosing to have both their breasts removed would circumvent what is a family history of women dying young of breast cancer. One sister has chosen to have a full prophylactic mastectomy to remove her healthy breasts. The other two are struggling with difficult decision making process to bring the future into the present and have their breast removed in order to reduce the risk of developing cancer at a later date. Pieces of Me puts a human face to the accelerating scientific advancements in genetic identification. The science of genetics is expanding faster than cures or treatments, so what do people do when diagnosed with a faulty gene, knowing that cures are still far behind.

Meet the blended family of Madonna, the Queen of Pop
Madonna is a person who combines many things all at once, as she is an American singer, a writer, a filmmaker, a philanthropist and feminist. The basis of her success is extreme ambitiousness and an ability to communicate with people. That’s exactly how she turned out to be in New York, pursuing a career of a dancer, making extra money as a waitress and a model to survive in such a challenging, yet promising city. Her life is an implementation of an American dream! The singer’s mother, Madonna Louise Ciccone, was a decisive follower of a Catholic religion. She suffered from breast cancer and died at the age of just 30, when Madonna marked 5 years. The father, Silvio who was an engineer by profession soon married another woman. This led to the changes in the daughter’s behavior, turning her into a rebel for several years in a row. Madonna’s step-mother’s name is Joan and before marrying Silvio, she was a housekeeper in their house. Madonna has 7 siblings. Her elder brother, Anthony has always been different. He was used to drink a lot, which led to him living on the streets, suffering from alcohol addiction and being in bad relationships with many family members. One more elder brother is named Martin and exactly like Anthony, he suffered from alcohol for many years. Additionally to that, he was in jail several times. However, now he is working in Hollywood, in one of the rehab centers and is doing great, thanks to his sister’s support. Paula is a one-year younger sister and we don’t know any information about her life. Christopher is another younger sibling, who is a talented dancer and interior decorator. He was working alongside the famous artist during her worldwide tours and even decorated her house. He never hid the fact of being gay and since 2016 he has been happily living with a hairdresser, Ray Thacker. The last sister born to the same parents is Melanie. She is a wonderful mother to 2 kids and a loving wife to a songwriter Joe Henry. There is also one paternal half-sister and half-brother, named Jennifer and Mario. Nothing is known about Jen, meanwhile Mario is married, has 2 kids and works as a manager. Madonna’s personal life is as bright as her professional career. Her first husband was a well-known Sean Penn whom she married after 15 days of dating. They divorced 4 years after. Then, the legendary icon was in a relationship with a dancer, Carlos Leon. With him she gave birth to her first child, yet still they didn’t last long together. The second spouse was a British film director Guy Ritchie who was introduced to Madonna by Sting. They tied the knot after a year of being together and during the marriage that lasted 8 years they have produced a baby. Madonna has 6 kids. The eldest is Lourdes, who is a mutual child with Carlos Leon. She is studying at the University and in spare time, works as a model. There are 2 sons with Guy Ritchie. The first one is Rocco and he is her biological son who lived many years in Great Britain with father. Since 2017 he has been living in New York with mom, studying in a college. The second son is David who was adopted in 2005. He was ill with pneumonia but the pop queen provided the best treatment and now he is pursuing a dream of becoming a footballer. Chifundo (Mercy) James was adopted by the star in 2006. The girl was ill with malaria, so the pop icon did her best to adopt her as soon as possible. Now she is a strong, healthy and happy kid! Adopted twins, Estere and Stelle were born in 2012. Their biological mother died and father couldn’t take care of them. Having seen them for the very first time in an orphanage, Madonna knew she wouldn’t go back to the US without them.

Dr. Smith Discusses the Brachytherapy Breast Cancer Trial
Benjamin D. Smith, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology, Division of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses a clinical trial that compared whole-breast irradiation (WBI) to accelerated partial breast brachytherapy (APBI-brachy) for women that were diagnosed with incident-invasive breast cancer after lumpectomy. The study looked at 130,535 Medicare patients age 66 and older that were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer between 2000 and 2007. Compared to WBI the patients receiving APBI-brachy had a much higher incidence of mastectomy within 5 years of treatment, postoperative infections, breast pain, and fat necrosis. Smith describes the trial as being novel and intriguing because of the unexpected illustration of outcomes demonstrated between the two therapies. A complex trade-off between the two therapies has been revealed and an appreciation of the differences will help clinicians and patients determine the best radiation treatment approach.

Can one inherit Breast Cancer? - Dr. Nanda Rajaneesh
Yes one can inherit breast cancer, but 15% of the total breast cancer that we receive in our clinical practise are only inherited breast cancer. Remaining 85% is because of the external environmental factors leafing to cancer cell changes. So when I say inherited breast cancer means if the mother had a breast cancer or mother’s sister had a breast cancer, if the father’s sister had a breast cancer or her on sister has had a breast cancer, so the individual or the woman is likely to develop breast cancer, this is related to what is called as genes positivity or brca 1 or brca 2 test if it is positive, they are likely to develop breast cancer. So inherited breast cancers, they have a particular pattern where they develop breast cancer at a very young age. This is the reason why aggressive screening is very very important in women who have a family history of breast cancer.

Decoding Annie Parker - Trailer
Annie Parker (Samantha Morton) has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and ultimately she is diagnosed with it too. Naturally affable with an offbeat sense of humor -- even in the face of her own mortality, she struggles to hold her family and life together, as her body betrays her. Meanwhile, geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) is convinced there is a link between DNA and cancer -- even if no one in her profession shares her belief. Against the advice of nearly all of her colleagues, she persists in her research and her dogged pursuit for funding that will lead to the groundbreaking study that will join the two women together. Decoding Annie Parker follows the incredible, irreverent and heartwarming story of how the paths of cancer survivor Annie Parker and geneticist Mary-Claire King intersect. With grace and humor the film chronicles how these remarkable women work to make one of the most important genetic discoveries of the 20th century.

Copland, Ph.D., a molecular biologist and cancer researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida talks about a study that recently appeared in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics. They report that two drugs, romidepsin and decitabine, work cooperatively to activate a potent tumor suppressor gene that is silenced in kidney cancer and triple negative breast cancer. Once the gene, secreted frizzled related protein one or sFRP1, went to work after the drugs were used, the laboratory tumor cells stopped growing and died. This study was the first to test the use of both in these metastatic cancers linked to sFRP1, and the results are very encouraging.
