Success Over Sarcoma 2007! www.ts2007 Yes, this is an update, more accurate, video--I still don't know why my voice is out of sync. Hi my name is Melissa and I'm a participant in the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative's Team Sarcoma 2007 bike tour. Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer. I'm participating because there were federal budget cuts to the NIH which caused sarcoma research to be practically halted. My mom also died of synovial sarcoma (soft-tissue cancer) on Oct 12, 2006 so I feel that doing this will honor her. I'm hoping that posting this you tube video will accomplish a few things: 1.) hopefully you'll go to my website and pass out this link to other people you know, my website is www.ts2007 2.) hopefully you'll also send letters to your state representatives and senators in regards to the federal budget cuts to the NIH. 3.) I'm also hoping you will sponsor me for my participation in the bike tour, all sponsors will be given to the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative as a donation for sarcoma research. Thank you! Melissa In honor of my mother, Lucia.

The ambassador went on to say that the movement as an example for both individuals and governments 'I believe that, as diplomats, we have much to learn from such efforts, as individuals in civil society organizations from around the world work together across borders to face a disease that knows no borders.'

Grant's Cancer Update & Sarcoma Fundraiser 2008 For this year's event I have engraved special stones with the word sarc (root of sarc-oma) in Greek (for flesh). It's an inspiration/memory/fundraising stone. When the stone gets wet, the engraving disappears, then reappears as it dries. To me it's a symbol of the enduring spirit of humans against physical hardships. All donations over 50 dollars (or 25 pounds) will receive a stone in the mail. Please send this and my other sarcoma commercials to your friends and help spread the word for sarcoma awareness. Sarcoma is only 1% of all cancers so we need all the help to make our voice heard.

Success Over Sarcoma 2008 As mentioned in the video, I am participating in the 2008 Team Sarcoma Bike Tour in Germany/Austria (Danube River).

Since then I've been on a crusade to pass on awareness of sarcoma to others. My second goal is raise money for sarcoma research, this year I hope to raise $6500.

Don Ganem Part 1 Kaposis Sarcoma: The Disease In 1872, Moritz Kaposi first described a disease that included pigmented skin tumors and in some cases tumors of the viscera. While KS has been endemic in some areas of the world for many years, a highly aggressive and deadly form of the disease emerged concurrently with the HIV/AIDS epidemic. KS is a very unusual cancer including multiple cell types, including cells of a spindle morphology, in a single tumor. In this section of the talk, the atypical biology of this cancer it will be discussed. Epidemiological studies suggested that HIV was not the causative agent of KS. In the mid-1990s, a new human herpes virus, Kaposis sarcoma associated herpes virus (KSHV), was identified as the likely cause of KS. Development of a serological test for the presence of KSHV in patients showed that KS seroprevalence strikingly mirrored KS risk and, additionally, KS was never found in KSHV negative patients. This data strongly supported KSHV as the causative agent of KS. However, epidemiology also showed that additional cofactors are required for disease development and in the case of patients with AIDS, HIV is this cofactor. In this section of the lecture, we will look at which viral genes are expressed in KS and how they cause disease. KSHV has both a latent and lytic cycle. In the latency cycle, very few genes are expressed and no new virus is produced allowing the host cell to survive. In the lytic cycle, all open reading frames are expressed, new virus produced and the host cell ...

Childhood Cancer our journey! Ewing's Sarcoma February 1st 2007 our lives were changed forever. Our 15 year old daughter Nicolette (Nikki) was diagnosed with ewings sarcoma. For about 6 months Nikki was complaining of lower back pain off and on. The pain would go away with Motrin and sometimes be gone for a few weeks at a time so the doctor said to stop doing sit ups (she did 100 a day) and not to run on the treadmill and see what happens. Then on Feb.1st she said the pain was so bad she can't sit in the chairs at school. That morning I took her back to the doctor and she sent us for a MRI that day. A few hours later the phone rang with the doctor telling us to pack a bag and get to Children's Memorial Hospital that something was seen on the MRI. Since that day she has had several procedures, scans, MRI, and biopsy. Due to the location in her spine it is inoperable. She has completed 9 rounds of chemotherapy out of 14 all inpatient and she has just finished 31 radiation treatments. She loves shopping, listen to Bob Dylan, and horseback riding. Her older sister is her best friend and as she says her 2 younger sisters are annoying. Nikki is an inspiration to all of us with her strength and her constant negotiations with the doctor to move chemo for a week or two due to what she calls more important things. They gave in this time so she could start her Junior year but it's going to be the last time. As with all these amazing kids life has been a roller coaster this past year in and out of the hospital, low counts ...

Sarcoma.Sarcoma treatment in India in 100% safe medical settings Sarcoma treatment in India is performed by the highly expert surgeons who provide high quality medical service. A Sarcoma (from the Greek 'sarx' meaning "flesh") is a cancer of the connective tissue (bone, cartilage, fat) resulting in mesoderm proliferation. Sarcoma treatment in India is provided in 100% safe medical or esthetic settings, where clients can enjoy the benefits of latest available technology and highly professional medical staff. Surgery is the most common treatment for adult soft tissue sarcoma. For some soft-tissue sarcomas, removal of the tumor in surgery may be the only treatment needed. Radiation therapy or chemotherapy may be given before or after surgery to remove the tumor. When given before surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy will make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of tissue that needs to be removed during surgery. Treatment given before surgery is called neoadjuvant therapy. When given after surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy will kill any remaining cancer cells. Treatment given after the surgery, to lower the risk that the cancer will come back, is called adjuvant therapy. India is widely popular for its world-class and skilled professionals that attract thousands of medical patients from different parts of the world to get their surgery done here. Sarcoma treatment in India saves you considerable amount of money as the healthcare prices in India are low as compared to that in USA and UK. In addition to treatment medical ...
