Genetic Testing Information and Benefits

Standard

Written by: Reauxqkwuanzyiia C’lay-Pettis

September 27, 2020

Breast cancer is a progressive disease that occurs in many stages from stage 0 to stage 4, with stage 4 being the most progressive, having spread to other organs within the body. Breast cancer affects both women and men, and an estimated 42,170 women and 520 men will die from the condition this year. Although the 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is 99%, if it spreads to the lymph nodes that rate drops down to 86%. This shows the importance of early detection and diagnosis. In addition to early screening and detection efforts, genetic testing may aid in increasing the 5-year survival rate.

Genetic testing is a medical test that determines changes in genes, chromosomes, and proteins. It detects mutations that are able to be inherited and are present at birth. They test for point mutations and deletions in the genetic sequence as well as chromosome rearrangements.These tests usually require a blood sample or cheek swab, thus they are non-invasive. Genetic testing can be important for greater prevention, earlier diagnosis, and improves treatment.

There are many genes connected to breast cancer, and these specific genes can increase the risk of developing breast cancer. The two main genes that are highly associated with breast cancer are the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These two genes are highly penetrant, and are responsible for the majority of hereditary breast cancers and account for about 5%-10% of breast cancers. Some other genes associated with breast cancer are TP53, PTEN, ATM, and PALB2.

Prior to getting a genetic test, it is recommended that genetic counseling be completed. Genetic counseling consists of completing a family history selecting appropriate tests based on family history, obtaining informed consent, and explaining results and answering any questions.  Open-ended and targeted questions are asked to complete a family history, including cancer status, age of onset, and other questions that will aid in determining what tests are needed. A genetic risk assessment is then completed based on this information. This aids in determining which tests are necessary. Tests can be ordered in the office setting, but it is important to have genetic testing completed prior to having the test or the insurance company may not cover the procedure.

There are criteria that must be met to receive genetic testing. The target population includes individuals with a personal or family history of breast and ovarian cancers with evidence of inherited cancer susceptibility. These individuals must have access to genetic counseling and the test must aid in decision making. Some ethnic groups are at higher risk for breast cancer, and they may be able to obtain a test without additional family history.

I believe completing genetic testing as part of mammograms and standard health screening should be a regular practice. It can prevent an additional 2,319-2,666 breast cancer and 327-449 ovarian cancer cases per million women. Hopefully in the future, this practice can be adopted and the number of breast cancer cases, metastasis, and deaths can decrease.

Novel Treatments for Breast Cancer

Standard

Written by: Reauxqkwuanzyiia C’lay-Pettis

September 20, 2020

Cancer is a deadly disease that affects people globally, and it is currently the second leading cause of death. In the United States alone, 1.6 million people are diagnosed with this disease yearly. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States. Breast cancer can be caused by external factors; however, there is a genetic component to breast cancer that can increase one’s risk of getting the disease. Regular wellness visits and screening can help detect breast cancer early on. The sooner it is detected, the sooner treatment can begin.

            There are a variety of treatments currently used for breast cancer.  These include excision surgery to remove the cancerous tissue, chemotherapy to shrink and kill cancer cells, hormonal therapy to prevent growth of cancer cells and radiation therapy to kill cancer cells with high energy rays. Although these treatments are common, many of these cancer treatments have side effects. However, there is research being done to improve treatment for cancer patients. These treatments are still in the preclinical research phases, but they have shown promising results.

            One such treatment is stem cell therapy. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be used after cancer treatments to improve healing damaged normal tissues after aggressive cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. Using both hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and MSCs can reduce side effects, also known as adverse events, caused by treatment. Another stem cell type is the cancer stem cell (CSCs). Anti-cancer vaccines targeting cancer stem cells are a potential treatment due to their high immunogenicity. Side-effects of using these treatments include an increase in immune response leading to Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD), although the use of MSCs had been shown to reduce this risk.

            The next potential therapy is the use of Ephedra alata as an adjuvant, a therapy applied after initial cancer treatment.  Ephedra alata is a plant extract that has high quantities of polyphenolic compounds. Cisplatin is a chemotherapeutic agent that is highly effective for many cancers, including breast cancer. Ephedra alata in combination with cisplatin has been shown to decrease cell viability dependent on dosage. Cisplatin can show cytotoxic effects to cancer cells within 24 hours. This combination was also shown to increase apoptosis, also known as cell death, of cancer cells. This was accomplished through the activation of caspases and the inhibition of anti-apoptotic proteins.

            The final treatment used nanoparticles to deliver the cancer drug anastrozole. Anastrozole is a cancer drug that inhibits the aromatase, thus reducing the recurrence of breast cancer in post-menopausal women. Anastrozole has negative side-effects due to poor solubility. The use of nanoparticles optimizes drug delivery due to the ability to permeate the cell membrane, be retained in the cell, and due to the controlled delivery and sustainability of the drug.

            Although in the early stages, these treatments have shown promising results for increasing drug efficacy and reducing side effects. With time, these drugs can be adopted for use in the clinical setting, greatly improving health outcomes.

Exercise and Breast Cancer

Standard
Follow us on IG @iwillsurviveinc

Exercise is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Research has shown that women who exercise have an improved quality of life and have fewer side effects during and following treatment. Exercise has also been shown to enhance overall health and wellness, improve mood, reduce fatigue, and increase stamina. Some research suggests that exercise may reduce the chances of a breast cancer recurrence.

Tips on Exercise

The beginning of treatment is not the time to begin a strenuous exercise program. You will likely have days that you feel energetic, and other days you may be more fatigued.

  • If you have already been exercising, keep it up as you feel able, listening to your body and allowing rest when your body asks for it.
  • If you would like to begin exercising now, consider starting gently with a walking program. Many patients feel a daily walk improves their emotional and physical well-being during treatment
  • An exercise plan which fits your personality, lifestyle, and health and fitness goals is an important part of breast cancer survivorship.
  • As you move past treatment and into survivorship, you will want to consider the benefits of each type, and develop a fitness plan that works for you.

Types of Exercise

Cardiovascular exercise, sometimes called “cardio”, is the type of exercise which increases your heart rate, and may cause you to break a sweat. This type of workout is recommended 30 minutes, five times a week (or 150 minutes per week), and includes exercises like walking, running, rowing, bike riding, or swimming. This kind of exercise improves heart health and helps maintain a healthy weight. Many people also find it helpful in managing stress and maintaining a sense of well-being.

Exercise Videos

You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for you.

I WILL SURVIVE, INC.’S 2019 BOARD MEMBER OF THE YEAR AWARD RECIPIENT

Standard

Feiji McKay (third from the right)

AUTHOR: Lauren Bagger, IWS Content Writer

Feiji McKay is a meticulous gentleman motivated by strong convictions and his love for helping those in need. His passionate personality is seen in his dedication to the I Will Survive Incorporation. When trying to recall a particular moment where McKay showed his commitment, founder Anisa Palmer was at a loss for only one single worthy story. That is because McKay has always exceeded expectations within and outside of the organization. McKay’s hallmark is that in everything, he finds a way to be exceptionally and extraordinarily good.

When brought onto the IWS Inc. Board of Directors there are a few, but important, qualifications that must be met. One must pay their dues, attend or fundraise for events, attend board meetings, as well as help bring others to the IWS organization’s door. McKay consistently goes above and beyond the required call to action. Not only does he pay his board member dues in full and earlier than expected, but he purchases tickets for events, fundraises, and volunteers his time during IWS Inc. gatherings, never misses board meetings, and works to foster partnerships between local organizations so that IWS Inc. can always be an active participant in their community. His passion for serving others is commendable and his consistent investment in IWS Inc. is what makes him a welcomed fixture on the organization’s Board of Directors. A man like Feiji McKay is someone that every non-profit needs on their team. 

There is no accurate way to measure how much Feiji McKay has given to IWS Inc. Thanks to members like McKay, the organization had a fruitful Giving Tuesday this year. McKay, who has an extensive background in IT, partnered with Give Media (now Give Lively), to give the IWS organization their own text-to-give campaign. Texting donation campaigns are a costly but convenient method for accepting donations; however, McKay provided the service to IWS Inc. for free. This year, Giving Tuesday was combined with Georgia Gives to maximize the donation potential for organizations like IWS Inc. McKay’s research and partnerships allowed IWS Inc.  to accept more donations than in previous years, acquiring more funding for the organization’s efforts in the future.”

IWS Inc. is grateful to McKay and appreciates the deep relationship he has forged with the foundation. The organization has been involved with McKay and his family since 2012 when McKay’s close cousin, Paris Murphy, was diagnosed with breast cancer and thyroid cancer. The organization stepped in, offering the entrepreneur financial and emotional support, and McKay took note of their significance in the lives of those diagnosed with cancer. His cousin, who served on IWS Inc.’s Board of Directors as well, is now a proud survivor, and since her arrival at IWS Inc., McKay has made sure to give back to the organization so that others can utilize their services too. 

McKay lives by example. He is a leader in his own life, constantly aligning himself with those who cannot fully help themselves. He is a family man who extends a helping hand to those close to him, as well as those in his peripheral. When he is not at the IWS Inc. office, or working in his profession, he is visiting sick family and community members and offering many ways of support. McKay has found a new family within the IWS organization. His year-long presence has left an impactful impression and his altruism, grounded in honorable morality, has not gone unnoticed. To find a man like Feiji McKay is rare. Being kind and giving is always appreciated, but within McKay, there is a determined work ethic to implement change. 

McKay, like many people, acts with intention, but unlike others he expects his intentions to become executable actions. Actions that are beneficial in the short and the long term. Feiji McKay is being honored as IWS Inc.’s Board Member Of The Year not only because he stands out as one of the organization’s hardest workers, but because he is a personable and generous man who uses his wits, experience, money, time, and grace to give long-lasting services that will impact his community for the times to come.

GA Gives Day and Giving Tuesday!

Standard

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 6.21.50 PM

Our mobile text to give campaign is live in conjunction with our GA Gives Day website up and running as well as our Facebook end of year campaign going. Who is excited for #GAgives and #GivingTuesday as much as we are?

We are trying to raise significant funds for our programs along with some capacity building. We need to hire a new Executive Director/CEO and find a new building for our headquarters before we begin planning to grow nationally and globally per our strategic plan.

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 7.06.16 PM

If we can raise $5,000 on GA Gives website as well as $45,000 on Facebook and get those funds matched, in addition to our mobile giving campaign (Text IWillSurvive to 44321), we may be able to raise $250,000. That is what it will take for us to grow effectively. We have an international team working on our Google campaign project as well as a national team working on our Salesforce project. Two incredible interns wrap the year up with us as well, Lauren and Sierra. We are working hard to ensure we can stay open with our programs running effectively and efficiently.

We know there is no program like ours and we do not want any family to fight eviction due to lack of affordable housing while battling breast cancer nor fight to keep employment, have access to quality health care, nutrition, and a quality of life after surviving cancer.

We are thankful for all stakeholders from 2010 to now! We are not able to stand without you! Happy Thanksgiving from all of us @IWillSurviveInc and stay tuned and connected via social media.

In Service,

Founding Executive Director Ms. Palmer

I Will Survive, Inc.’s 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award Recipient

Standard

Author: Lauren Bagger, IWS Content Writer

Paris Smile.pngParis Hug

The I Will Survive Incorporation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit in the metropolitan area of Atlanta, Georgia. Every year they award a dedicated volunteer with the honor of Volunteer of the Year, an award given to those who have shown an unwavering effort to better the organization as well as themselves. This year Paris V. Johnson, an entrepreneur from Detroit, Michigan, deservedly won VOTY. She has taken her own experiences at I Will Survive Inc. to start her own business, Promoting Motivational Move Makers (P3M), which is an advertising and marketing company dedicated to supporting small business needs. P3M is a short video ad company that provides promotional videos, SEO management, website designs, logo design and animation to small businesses at affordable prices. Their mission is to make clients’ money and to be a point of contact for their clients’ entrepreneurial and startup needs. The company was borne out of founder Paris V. Johnson’s want to see others succeed: “ I see your vision…Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart…Wishing happiness, prosperity, and good health to all,” Paris says. In addition to their business services, P3M prioritizes community service, and a portion of profits are donated to I Will Survive Inc., as well as 3 other volunteer organizations. I Will Survive Inc. congratulates Paris for her nomination and her win. It is a privilege to serve the Atlanta community with you at our side.

During an interview, founder, Anisa Palmer, explained her first impression of Paris V. Johnson. “She fell right in. What can I do to help? Where do I need to go? What’s the move? What needs to be done?… She knew what was bringing her here,” Anisa said. Paris’ commitment to helping others made her a perfect candidate for I Will Survive Inc.’s Volunteer of the Year award. Yet, it was her professionalism and dedication to improving the organization’s impact that made her win deserved. From consistently attending the monthly meetings, to showing up, unprompted, to offer a helping hand with events, to even dedicating part of her own business to raising money for IWS, Paris’ willingness to go above and beyond the organization’s call to action makes her a cherished point of strength within the company.

Paris embodies all IWS core values. She possesses unshakeable integrity, a sense of purpose that allows her to be consistently innovative, and she is a woman of wellness and equanimity. What brought Paris’ to IWS was her own mother’s battle with breast cancer. Paris’ mother conquered her first bout with the disease when Paris was a child. Years later it returned, but her mother survived it again and has been in remission for a decade. Paris’ bond with her mom strengthened during their fight with breast cancer and the two have become an inseparable and endearing duo. Her mother’s diagnosis was a pivotal moment in Paris’ life. Paris began to recognize the need for support and resources within the breast cancer community and became determined to be a part of the solution. Disappointed with other breast cancer organizations for their lack of transparency, Paris’ chose the IWS for their honesty and the intimate relationship they form with their staff, volunteers, and those they help.

Brought on initially as a volunteer and training as a health advocate, Paris’ quickly became a welcomed asset to the team. Ms. Palmer recounted that once, Paris attended two of the organization’s events in one day. As an IWS fitness workshop finished, Paris’ speedily drove across Atlanta to attend an IWS speaking event. She was exhausted but ready to offer support by any means necessary. “…In comes Paris like magic,” Ms. Palmer remembers.” She was determined to find us. She was determined to be there.” Since her arrival, Paris has brought nothing but her best. It is recognized that the work achieved by the IWS would not be possible without volunteers like Paris.

“Before the titles, before the acts of kindness, Paris is a good human being…We praise her mom for raising her right!” Ms. Palmer laughed. Paris grounds herself in her convictions and inspires others to do the same. As a businesswoman and a minority, Paris has little tolerance for the unjust and does not bite her tongue for the sake of politeness. She is strong-willed–when she says she’ll get something done it would take an otherworldly force to prevent her from doing so. Paris has a depth to her that is a rarity in most, and yet when asked to describe herself her reply is poetic in its simplicity. Rather than seeing herself as the powerhouse that she is, she describes her life as “residing in the clouds.” “It’s bright and quiet up there,” she wrote. Paris won Volunteer of the Year because she possesses an incredible sense of self that others spend a lifetime trying to obtain. One could call Paris’ motivation to help others persistent drive, but Paris would rather describe it as her life’s purpose. She lives a fulfilled life. One of encouraging others and serving them so that they too, can succeed.

Inflammation and Cancer

Standard

Zarifa Article 1

Article published by: Zarifa Eshova, IWS Health Advocate, Researcher 

Inflammation and Cancer

Inflammation in the body has been linked to increased risk of developing cancer. This is because active inflammation provides a good growing environment for cancerous cells, thereby, not only initiating formation of a tumor, but also further progressing it. Previous studies have shown that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen can help fight against cancer. Not only did they reduce the risk of developing cancer, but they were also linked to lower mortality rates in patient with lung cancer.

Omega-3 Fatty Acid

Omega-3 fatty acids are known for their role in preventing cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, or heart failure. An article published on the Tanaffos emphasizes that Omega-3 fatty acids decrease blood pressure and heart rate due to their blood thinning effects. While including Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet is not only good for your heart, recent studies suggest that they may also play a role in preventing cancer.

According to clinicaltrials.gov, Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of breast cancer initiation and further development. They act as anti-inflammatory agents which control the environment in which a tumor may develop. Furthermore, Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically eicosatetraenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acids, also known as EPA and DHA respectively, have shown to lower levels of depression. While some believe that their effect on depression can be linked to the anti-inflammatory effects, others believe that it may be related to its ability to pass through the brain cell membrane. Nevertheless, meta-analyses suggest that Omega-3’s are effective in preventing depression.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Incorporation into Diet

Omega-3 fatty acids can be incorporated in your diet through Omega-3 rich foods or supplements that can be bought over the counter. While taking supplements may be an easy way to consume these fats, eating certain foods that are rich in Omega-3’s can be tastier, cheaper, and more effective.

Some foods that are rich in Omega-3’s include:

  • Seafoods (salmon, herring, sardines, tuna, or trout)
  • Plant oils (flaxseed oil, soybean oil, canola oil)
  • Breads with Flaxseed
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Nuts (walnuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds)
