Giving Back to LBBC: Amy Lessack’s Story

Giving Back to LBBC: Amy Lessack’s Story via LBBC’s Blog: The Tuesday after Thanksgiving will be the second annual #GivingTuesday, a national online initiative and day of giving back to charities, nonprofit organizations and important causes. Amy Lessack wrote this blog post on why she’s giving back to LBBC and why you should, too. I recently learned about a national online initiative called #GivingTuesday and thought it was such a cool idea. The objective of the day is to have everyone everywhere donate or host charitable activities to benefit an organization of their choice the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  Well, for me, the answer is easy:  Yes, of course I will “Give on Tuesday” and…my organization of choice is Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC)! LBBC does amazing things for women who are diagnosed with breast cancer and really for anyone who is impacted by the disease, including family members, friends, caregivers or healthcare providers. What makes LBBC a unique organization to gravitate to is the personal touch given by the staff and the services they offer.  LBBC offers webinars, community meetings and face-to-face conferences, as well as the Breast Cancer Helpline, which is staffed by survivors who lovingly answer calls and help where they can by just listening, offering support and resources – instead of just relying on “Dr. Google.”   I was introduced to LBBC in 2002 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My family and I were desperate to find information that would educate us on what we needed to know as we navigated this new world.  LBBC provided this information and more.  Although I didn’t think I needed a support group, LBBC create a safe haven where I actually became a part of one due to my participation in their programs. Attending sessions in the beginning was a family affair, with my mom taking an active role and feeling very comfortable asking questions and participating when I was unable to do so, because the organization and the staff are so loving and welcoming.   I had several big decisions to make in my treatment journey and my confidence in making them can be linked back to the specialists I heard from and met because of my LBBC affiliation.  Yoga is another surprise gift I can link back to LBBC.  I am now a 10-year participant and fundraiser (go team “Thrivin’ and Survivin”!) for Yoga on the Steps, LBBC’s signature education and fundraising event, where I am thrilled to share that my co-captain, Jewel Ajibade, and I have raised a lot of money and awareness both in Philadelphia and in DC for LBBC—and really all over the country since we are lucky enough to have friends everywhere! Although I volunteered here and there over the course of the years, I was finally able to participate in a big way by joining the board of directors in 2012! As a board member, I have had the opportunity to have a more intimate view of LBBC and how every dollar donated is utilized to create educational materials and  learning opportunities, and to follow up-to-date research to empower women to have as much knowledge as possible to make the best decisions for their physical and emotional health.  KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!  I know that first-hand.  It gave me the confidence to question my doctors, ask A LOT of questions, seek second opinions and make decisions that I knew at the time, and I know now for sure, were the right decisions! Being a board member has given me the opportunity to shout from the roof tops:  I love LBBC! It is an organization that quite simply has helped to save my life in so many ways. Between the educational opportunities (always current on what is new and using multiple delivery channels), the care of the staff, the opportunities to network and the friends that I have made are priceless! LBBC is the perfect organization for me because it is all about learning, growing and living well with my breast cancer diagnosis. It is also so great for my family because they can equally participate, learn and connect! As part of our work on the board in the summer of 2013 we refreshed LBBC’s vision and mission.  I am so proud of the thoughtful work we put forth to come up with a new vision and mission that makes us all proud and more determined than ever to meet and exceed! Vision:  A world where no one impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone. Mission: Connecting people to trusted breast cancer information and a community of support. After reading my story and LBBC’s vision and mission – I hope you too will give to Living Beyond Breast Cancer on #GivingTuesday!  And… more importantly, share my story and the website www.lbbc.org and the Breast Cancer Helpline Line # (888-753-LBBC [5222]) to women and their families who need support! Support LBBC on #GivingTuesday. Follow LBBC on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about our #GivingTuesday activities.

Discovering how these multiple movements are achieved is not only crucial to understand the basic principles of development but provides new information and insights for further research into processes associated with the spread of cancer.Jordi Casanova, head of the “Morphogenesis in Drosophila” lab at IRB Barcelona and CSIC research professor, and Gaëlle Lebreton, postdoctoral fellow in the same group, have published a study performed using Drosophila melanogaster in the Journal of Cell Science. This work reveals that in a multiple movement, a single cell can act as the leader and can drag the rest with it. The scientists have studied the tracheal development of Drosophila in vivo and describe the morphological characteristics of the leading cell and provide molecular details about how it drives the movement.”Cancer researchers are keen to know how cells are organized to achieve migration and to form new capillaries to feed an expanding cancerous tumor,” explains Gaëlle Lebreton, first author of the article. “Our study gives new data about how angiogenesis might arise,” comments the French scientist at IRB Barcelona. Angiogenesis or the formation of new blood vessels is a critical process in the context of cancer because it is one of the steps that mark the transformation of a benign tumour into a malignant one. The formation of new blood vessels involves the synchronized movements of groups of cells. In this regard, understanding how these groups work will open up new research lines on angiogenesis.Over seven hours, the scientists tracked a group of seven cells that form one of the tracheal branches of the fly Drosophila melanogaster in its first hours of development. The leading cell is the only one that has receptors for the growth factor FGF. … For more info: Insight on cell migration, movement of cancer cells ScienceDaily: Top Health News Insight on cell migration, movement of cancer cells L’articolo Insight on cell migration, movement of cancer cells sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Judging from images of these far-flung galaxies, they found the Milky Way likely began as faint, blue, low-mass object containing lots of gas. Gas is the fuel for star birth and the blue color is an indicator of rapid star formation.They also found the Milky Way probably was a flat disk with a bulge in the middle, both of which grew simultaneously into the majestic spiral seen today. The Sun and Earth reside in the disk and the bulge is both full of older stars and home to a supermassive black hole that probably grew along with the galaxy.”For the first time, we have direct images of what the Milky Way looked like in the past,” said study co-leader Pieter G. van Dokkum of Yale University in New Haven, Conn. “Of course, we can’t see the Milky Way itself in the past. We selected galaxies billions of light-years away that will evolve into galaxies like the Milky Way. By tracing the Milky Way’s siblings, we find that our galaxy built up 90 percent of its stars between 11 billion and 7 billion years ago, which is something that has not been measured directly before.”The Hubble telescope’s superior resolving power, with which it can see extremely fine detail, allowed the researchers to study how the structure of the Milky Way changed over time. At the peak of star formation, when the universe was about 4 billion years old, the Milky Way-like galaxies were pumping out about 15 stars a year. … For more info: Hubble reveals first scrapbook pictures of Milky Way’s formative years ScienceDaily: Top Science News Hubble reveals first scrapbook pictures of Milky Way’s formative years L’articolo Hubble reveals first scrapbook pictures of Milky Way’s formative years sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Botany: The secret of short stems

Botany: The secret of short stems Arabidopsis plants that only reach half their normal height have a mutation in the biosynthesis of the plant growth factor gibberellin. via ScienceDaily: Agriculture and Food News: Nov. 12, 2013 — Arabidopsis plants that only reach half their normal height have a mutation in the biosynthesis of the plant growth factor gibberellin.The normal height to which plants grow is a critical trait. In the wild Arabidopsis thaliana uses the same genetic changes in the biosynthesis of the growth factor gibberellin to cut its size in half as found in semi-dwarf varieties of rice and barley that have been bred by people. When expressing the same phenotype, various plant species apparently fall back on the same genes in their genotype. There must therefore be so-called “hot spots” whose repeated mutation produces the same traits that are beneficial in some conditions.Long-stem plants may well be a splendorous in flowerbeds. However, long stalks in a grain field present a danger to the yield. Tall rice or barley varieties buckle over too easily under the load of their heavy panicles or ears. During the green revolution in the 1960s, numerous high-yield varieties with half the normal height were produced for agriculture in developing countries. Many of the rice and barley varieties owe their short stature to a gibberellin deficiency. Besides linear growth, this plant growth factor promotes seed germination and the development of the blossoms. … For more info: Botany: The secret of short stems ScienceDaily: Agriculture and Food News Botany: The secret of short stems L’articolo Botany: The secret of short stems sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Molecule that orients neurons for high definition sensing identified

Molecule that orients neurons for high definition sensing identified Many animals have highly developed senses, such as vision in carnivores, touch in mice, and hearing in bats. New research has uncovered a brain molecule that can explain the existence of such finely-tuned sensory capabilities, revealing how brain cells responsible for specific senses are positioned to receive incoming sensory information. via ScienceDaily: Top Health News: Oct. 31, 2013 — Many animals have highly developed senses, such as vision in carnivores, touch in mice, and hearing in bats. New research from the RIKEN Brain Science Institute has uncovered a brain molecule that can explain the existence of such finely-tuned sensory capabilities, revealing how brain cells responsible for specific senses are positioned to receive incoming sensory information.The study, led by Dr. Tomomi Shimogori and published in the journal Science, sought to uncover the molecule that enables high acuity sensing by examining brain regions that receive information from the senses. They found that areas responsible for touch in mice and vision in ferrets contain a protein called BTBD3 that optimizes neuronal shape to receive sensory input more efficiently.Neurons have a highly specialized shape, sending signals through one long projection called an axon, while receiving signals from many branch-like projections called dendrites. The final shape and connections to other neurons are typically completed after birth. Some neurons have dendrites distributed equally all around the cell body, like a starfish, while in others they extend only from one side, like a squid, steering towards axons that are actively bringing in information from the peripheral nerves. It was previously unknown what enables neurons to have highly oriented dendrites.”We were fascinated by the dendrite patterning changes that occurred during the early postnatal stage that is controlled by neuronal input,” says Dr. Shimogori. “We found a fundamental process that is important to remove unnecessary dendrites to prevent mis-wiring and to make efficient neuronal circuits.”The researchers searched for genes that are active exclusively in the mouse somatosensory cortex, the brain region responsible for their sense of touch, and found that the gene coding for the protein BTBD3 was active in the neurons of the barrel cortex, which receives input from their whiskers, the highly sensitive tactile sensors in mice, and that these neurons had unidirectional dendrites.Using gene manipulations in embryonic mouse brain the authors found that eliminating BTBD3 made dendrites uniformly distribute around neurons in the mouse barrel cortex. … For more info: Molecule that orients neurons for high definition sensing identified ScienceDaily: Top Health News Molecule that orients neurons for high definition sensing identified L’articolo Molecule that orients neurons for high definition sensing identified sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

A first step in learning by imitation, baby brains respond to another’s actions

A first step in learning by imitation, baby brains respond to another’s actions Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery for adults, but for babies it’s their foremost tool for learning. Now researchers have found the first evidence revealing a key aspect of the brain processing that occurs in babies to allow this learning by observation. via ScienceDaily: Top Health News: Oct. 30, 2013 — Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery for adults, but for babies it’s their foremost tool for learning. As renowned people-watchers, babies often observe others demonstrate how to do things and then copy those body movements. It’s how little ones know, usually without explicit instructions, to hold a toy phone to the ear or guide a spoon to the mouth.Now researchers from the University of Washington and Temple University have found the first evidence revealing a key aspect of the brain processing that occurs in babies to allow this learning by observation.The findings, published online Oct. 30 by PLOS ONE, are the first to show that babies’ brains showed specific activation patterns when an adult performed a task with different parts of her body. When 14-month-old babies simply watched an adult use her hand to touch a toy, the hand area of the baby’s brain lit up. When another group of infants watched an adult touch the toy using only her foot, the foot area of the baby’s brain showed more activity.”Babies are exquisitely careful people-watchers, and they’re primed to learn from others,” said Andrew Meltzoff, co-author and co-director of the UW Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences. “And now we see that when babies watch someone else, it activates their own brains. This study is a first step in understanding the neuroscience of how babies learn through imitation.”The study took advantage of how the brain is organized. The sensory and motor area of the cortex, the outer portion of the brain known for its creased appearance, is arranged by body part with each area of the body represented in identifiable neural real estate. … For more info: A first step in learning by imitation, baby brains respond to another’s actions ScienceDaily: Top Health News A first step in learning by imitation, baby brains respond to another’s actions L’articolo A first step in learning by imitation, baby brains respond to another’s actions sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

New multiple action intestinal hormone corrects diabetes

New multiple action intestinal hormone corrects diabetes Scientists have developed a new therapeutic approach for treatment of Type 2 diabetes. A novel single molecule hormone, which acts equally on the receptors of the insulin-stimulating hormones GLP-1 and GIP, was observed to reduce weight and improve blood sugar. via ScienceDaily: Top Health News: Oct. 30, 2013 — Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) and the Technische Universität München (TUM), together with scientists in the USA, have developed a new therapeutic approach for treatment of type 2 diabetes. A novel single molecule hormone, which acts equally on the receptors of the insulin-stimulating hormones GLP-1 and GIP, was observed to reduce weight and improve blood sugar. The results have now been published in the medical journal ‘Science Translational Medicine’, and include data from successful clinical studies in partnership with the pharmaceutical company Roche.GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1) and GIP (gastric inhibitory peptide) are hormones that are formed by the digestive tract and that control food intake and numerous metabolic processes. When glucose (sugar) is ingested, these hormones primarily lead to increased insulin release and subsequent reduction in blood sugar, but they also affect appetite regulation and fat burning.Some of the actions, which are combined in one molecule for the first time, are already in use for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. GLP-1 analogues, as well as DPP4 (dipeptidyl peptidase 4) inhibitors, which are thought to enhance GLP-1 action, are used to reduce blood sugar. A HMGU and TUM team led by Dr. Brian Finan and Prof. Dr. Matthias Tschöp at the Helmholtz Diabetes Center, working with Richard DiMarchi from Indiana University and colleagues from the University of Cincinnati, have now succeeded in developing a molecular structure that combines the effects of the two hormones. … For more info: New multiple action intestinal hormone corrects diabetes ScienceDaily: Top Health News New multiple action intestinal hormone corrects diabetes L’articolo New multiple action intestinal hormone corrects diabetes sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Depression in cancer patients: What you should know

Depression in cancer patients: What you should know via Cancerwise | Cancer blog from MD Anderson Cancer Center: By Emily Weaver Depression is a serious illness that can have a major impact on an individual’s quality of life. In fact, 15-25% of people diagnosed with cancer also suffer from depression. This is more than double that of the general population. Studies show that mental health and social well-being can affect the success of treatment. Distinguishing depression from normal sadness Depression is more than just the normal feelings of sadness. Depression is a when an individual experiences at least one of the following symptoms for more than two weeks: margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> Feeling sad most of the time Loss of pleasure and interest in activities you used to enjoy Changes in eating and sleeping habits Nervousness Slow physical and mental responses Unexplained tiredness Feeling worthless Feeling guilt for no reason Decreased concentration ability Thoughts of death or suicide margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> margin-left:.25in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> If you suffer from any of these problems for more than two weeks and the symptoms are severe enough to cause noticeable problems in day-to-day activities, speak with your doctor. He or she can help determine the cause of these issues and plan further treatment, if necessary. Understanding depression in cancer patients It’s normal for cancer patients to experience sadness and grief for a variety of reasons, such as changes in life plans, changes in self-esteem and body image, disruption of social roles, financial challenges and end-of-life issues. As you experience these changes and challenges, it’s important to monitor the feelings that you’re experiencing to ensure that they are not impacting your day-to-day life or interfering with your medical care. How to deal with depression Anti-depressants are a common depression treatment prescribed for many cancer patients. And while they work great for some, they may not be the appropriate treatment for all cancer patients. There are also other proven methods that you may want to discuss with your doctor first. Here are a few: margin-left:.5in;margin-bottom:.0001pt”> Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy or counseling can occur one-on-one or in a group setting. Some common evidence based forms of treatment that are effective for depression are cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and interpersonal therapy. Exercise: Exercise can also aid in treating depression, with most studies showing that exercising at least three times a week as being ideal. The American Cancer Society recommends that you resume exercise as soon as possible after a cancer diagnosis, but this can be difficult for many cancer patients. So, talk with your health care provider about what’s appropriate for you. Stick to routines: Following a routine can help you maintain a feeling of accomplishment and a sense of control, both of which can be negatively affected by cancer and depression. A routine can also help push an individual to engage in activities they wouldn’t necessarily be motivated to complete. How caregivers can help If you are a caregiver, family member or friend to someone suffering from depression, there are many ways you can help your loved one. Encourage him or her to seek treatment for depression. Also, provide a safe place for your loved one to talk to you about what he or she is experiencing and offer non-judgmental feedback. Show your loved one that you truly care about his or her physical and emotional well-being. Cancer patients: Make time to get the help and support you need If you think you may suffer from depression, make time to get the help and support you need. After all, treating depression as soon as possible could help make your cancer journey a little less challenging. To learn more about managing depression or about resources available to those struggling with depression, ask to speak with your social work counselor or contact the Department of Social Work at 713-792-6195.
