Rural Breast Cancer Registry
Breast Cancer patients in rural areas face a number of unique challenges. Among them are the long distances to treatment centers in more urban areas; but also, compiling data from these patients is a challenge. Now, with the help of larger medical centers, rural patients are becoming part of a rural cancer registry to help future patients receive the correct, specialized treatment for their cancer.

Rural Breast Cancer Registry - Living With Cancer in Nebraska
Tracy Dethlefs was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. The challenges were many; fighting a deadly killer while managing a family, nursing jobs and a livestock operation. Driving became the one of the biggest hurdles and remains so for rural patients. But a rural breast cancer registry that gathers information about patients is providing hope. The registry uses genetic information to determine how best to fight breast cancer and provide effective treatment.

Moving Forward: Surviving Breast Cancer
One in nine Australian women will experience breast cancer in their lifetime. Despite more women being diagnosed with breast cancer, early detection and improvements in treatment mean that more women than ever before are surviving breast cancer. Moving Forward is a recorded program of an interactive online public forum on health and wellbeing after treatment for breast cancer that was held in February 2011. It explores the emerging evidence of the importance of lifestyle choices that influence the risk of recurrence. This program explores • The need for supportive care once treatment finishes • Living with uncertainty and how to manage it, without letting it manage you • The role of the GP in the multidisciplinary team for follow up care • The role of vitamin D in breast cancer and health • The increasing evidence on exercise and its role in preventing recurrence of breast cancer Women affected by cancer, their families and carers are encouraged to watch this program. The program is also of interest to breast care nurses, GPs and other health practitioners. Produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation http://www.rhef.com.au/

Secondary Breast Cancer: Finding Breast Cancer Outside the Breast
A project of the Supporting Women in Rural Areas Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Program, funded by the Australian Government and developed by the National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre. Secondary breast cancer, also known as metastatic breast cancer, is breast cancer which has spread to distant sites in the body such as the bone, liver or brain. Most women who present with secondary breast cancer will have already been diagnosed with and treated for early breast cancer, although this will be the first presentation for some . The prognosis of secondary breast cancer is largely dependent on the site of the metastasis, the disease-free interval and the hormone receptor status of the tumour. Management of secondary breast cancer carries a number of challenges for a woman and her health professionals. This program considers some of the challenges in management of secondary breast cancer, recent developments in treatment and the psychosocial and supportive care needs of women and their families. A number of new resources for women with secondary breast cancer and their families, developed by the National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre, are also discussed.

Breast Brachytherapy: A Shorter Course of Radiation
We teach you about short-course breast brachytherapy radiation for women who undergo a lumpectomy for early stage breast cancer. This is an option for well-selected patients. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Radiation Oncologist: 1. Am I a candidate for brachytherapy after my lumpectomy? 2. If it is an option, would you recommend it for me? 3. Do you offer brachytherapy? 4. What are the outcomes compared to whole breast radiation? 5. What are the side effects and complications of brachytherapy? 6. What is Brachytherapy? Brachytherapy, a type of Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI), is a technique of delivering a more focused radiation dose to the area of a lumpectomy over a shorter time period (one week) compared to whole breast radiation (four to six weeks). This one week course of radiation, applied just to the inside edges of the lumpectomy cavity, treats the areas of the breast that has the highest chance of having residual cancer cells. The goal is to reduce the chance of a “local recurrence.” Less than half of early stage breast cancer patients meet the criteria for brachytherapy. Well selected candidates may choose this option. Brachytherapy does require an outpatient procedure to place a “brachytherapy catheter device” into the breast. This device usually has a small catheter that exits the breast and is cared for by the patient for about 7 to 10 days. Who qualifies for brachytherapy radiation? Brachytherapy is an option for patients who undergo a lumpectomy for early stage cancer who have a number of favorable tumor characteristics. These include a small tumor, favorable receptors, no evidence of cancer in the lymph nodes, and generally women 50 years old and older. Ask your surgeon or radiation oncologist if you meet the specific guidelines they follow. Why does radiation reduce “local recurrence” of cancer? Radiation therapy is very effective at killing cancer cells while sparing the normal surrounding tissue. It is generally performed after surgery has removed your breast tumor. If you are going to have a lumpectomy surgery to remove your breast cancer, then you will most likely need radiation to reduce the chance cancer will grow back in the surgical area. Quite simply, radiation reduces the chance of cancer growing back in the area where the tumor was surgically removed or in nearby areas where the cancer is at risk for recurring in the future. When a “local recurrence” of your cancer does occur, it can be a threat to your life. Radiation reduces this risk of local recurrence, and as a result, may increase your chances at a cancer-free future. Is “Whole Breast Radiation” the gold standard? Whole breast radiation involves radiating the entire breast without placing a device inside the breast. It is well tolerated. Most breast radiation is performed with this technique over a 4 to 6-week treatment period. Modern brachytherapy techniques likely will prove to be very similar to whole breast radiation outcomes. Although it is now available in more communities, brachytherapy has its own set of advantages and complications. What are brachytherapy (APBI) treatment expectations? Brachytherapy radiation is performed as an outpatient within a dedicated radiation center. It is very well tolerated. A few facts about brachytherapy or accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) are listed below. Expectations during Brachytherapy Each treatment takes about 10 minutes Radiation does not hurt when administered Treatments are twice a day, Monday through Friday for one week The “catheter device” is removed immediately after treatment What are the side effects and toxicities of brachytherapy? The field of radiation has dramatically reduced its side effects over the last decade. CT Scan Radiation Planning has revolutionized the ability to better focus radiation on the area of cancer and avoid damaging adjacent normal tissue. Some side effects and toxicities *Irritated and tender breast and skin *Skin thickening and redness *Infection *Soreness of the breast and ribs *Cosmetic deformity *Rarely, unusual cancers can be caused by breast radiation *Situations some choose brachytherapy? If you cannot visit the radiation center daily for 4 to 6 weeks. Many women do not live close enough to a radiation center to drive daily for 4 to 6 weeks of treatments. Those that live in rural areas may be attracted by a one week series of treatments. Lifestyle, work, and vacation plans can sometimes conflict with dedicating an uninterrupted 4 to 6-week period of daily trips to the radiation center.

Breast Cancer Survivor Needs Medical Device
Please help! Breast Cancer Survivor Needs Medical Device Hello. I am a 3 1/2 year survivor of breast cancer and a widow and a child still at home. In 2008, I had to have a double mastectomy and lymph nodes removed from both sides. The next day, they had to do another lymph node dissection because they found cancer in the lymph nodes they removed. No one had ever informed me about lymphedema risks and the fact that 35% of breast cancer patients get it to some degree. When the lymph nodes are removed due to breast cancer, fluid builds up in the affected area which for me is my arms, chest, ribs, underarms, and back. I have severe lymphedema in my torso area and lighter lymphedema in my arms. I have bought and tried many, many different compression garments and devices but none work. I lived in a large city before moving back to rural Louisiana where I grew up. In the large cities, there are doctors that can manually drain the fluid that accumulates. In rural America, not so much, in fact, not at all. My insurance company has finally preauthorized the purchase and certified the medical necessity of the lymph jacket and pump. Unfortunately, I just found out my co-pay is quite expensive. The device costs $14,000 and my co-pay before year end is $1800 and will go up to my full deductible of $3,500 starting Jan. 1. I have gone through my savings and even my retirement accounts after my husband's death and all of my numerous surgeries due to breast cancer and simply cannot afford the $1800. The Impact This lymph jacket will be used by me several times a week for the rest of my life. It will keep the fluid from accumulating in my torso which limits my daily life as well as the things I can do with my child. The pain that occurs from the fluid accumulation is so bad that it becomes so overwhelming. Driving for any distance longer than an hour and flying in a plane both cause the lymphedema to get worse so my travel is limited. Constant pain changes who you are - something I learned from my late husband through all of his illness and disability after the Vietnam War. I do not want to live with pain any longer and this device is a simple, though expensive, way to eliminate this pain and this problem. It will allow me to live a normal life, just hook up to this machine for 30 minutes a day and I'll be good as new. You can read info on this medical device at the URL below. http://www.lymphcompression.com/docs/jacket.pdf What We Need & What You Get This will truly be the gift that keeps on giving. It will be used for the rest of my life. To cover my co-pay, I need $1,800 dollars before 12/31/11. On 1/1/12 my insurance deductible will go back up to $3,500 so buying this jacket before 12/31 is critical for me. You can contribute one of two ways: (1) You can call the medical supply company directly that I am buying the jacket from at (337) 893-0181, contact name is Shauna, company is Patients Care Medical Supply in Abbeville, who can take you donation over the phone; or (2) Donate online at http://www.indiegogo.com/Breast-Cancer-Survivor-Needs-Medical-Device

DCIS: Is it cancer, doctor?
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is an abnormal proliferation of cells confined within the mammary ducts. Approximately 1,600 women are diagnosed with DCIS in Australia each year. Women diagnosed with DCIS are at increased risk of being diagnosed with subsequent invasive breast cancer. A study previously conducted by National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre (NBOCC)* quantified this risk, finding that women diagnosed with DCIS were about four times more likely to develop invasive breast cancer compared with women of similar age in Australia. The aim of treating DCIS is to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer. A new diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ may be confusing for both the woman and her family. This program provides information to assist in clarifying this diagnosis, including: • how DCIS is diagnosed • the implications and impact for the woman diagnosed with DCIS • treatment options and follow-up care for a woman diagnosed with DCIS. This program also highlights a new NBOCC resource entitled Understanding ductal carcinoma in situ and deciding about treatment, developed for health professionals to assist women who have been diagnosed with DCIS in considering their treatment options. This program is introduced by Dr Helen Zorbas, CEO of Cancer Australia and former CEO of NBOCC*. * On 30 June 2011, National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre (NBOCC) amalgamated with Cancer Australia to form a single national agency, Cancer Australia, to provide leadership in cancer control and improve outcomes for Australians affected by cancer.

Individualization of Primary Surgical Therapy for Breast Cancer (USPHS, 1969)
Jerome A. Urban, M.D. lectures, using diagrams, graphs, and photographs. Three surgical approaches to breast neoplasms are discussed: modified radical mastectomy, radical mastectomy, and extensive radical mastectomy. Modified radical is indicated when: tumor is in situ and confined to the breast, tumor is low-grade, non-aggressive. Photographs shown of Paget's disease, nipple lesions, eczema of nipple with crusting. Radiation therapy should follow surgery. Modified radicallooks better and allows better function than the radical or extensive radical. Radical mastectomies followed by radiation therapy were performed on patients with early infiltrating tumors (survival rate 50%). In patients in which the disease was confined to the breast and who were treated with post-operative radiation, the rate was 54.4%. The extended radical mastectomy was performed on patients with a high risk of internal mammary spread, recurring cancers after radical mastectomy and radiation therapy, especially parasternal recurrence. Outer quadrant recurrence was much less frequent. Survival rates were 84% in cases where the axilla was not involved and 19% where the axilla was involved. Charts by Julian Blum from Middlesex Hospital, London, show the outcome of untreated breast cancer 1805-1933 and 1902-1933. Urban gives directions for performing extended radical when tumors are in other than the outer quadrants. Slides illustrate fascia inserted internally and externally, the latter preferred. Urban repeatedly emphasized that good primary therapy produces good results, and urges mammography, attendance at cancer clinics, and self-examination. Definitive diagnosis should be made from surgically removed tissue. Physicians should be alert for breast abnormalities in clinic and office. Produced by the United States Public Health Service.

Breast Cancer Surgery: Start with your Breast Surgeon
Learn the key breast cancer topics you will cover with your breast surgeon. Learn about breast cancer surgery and cutting-edge care. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _____________________________ Your breast surgeon guides your cancer care. This consultation is the start of your breast cancer treatment journey. Your breast surgeon sets the initial direction your cancer care. It is essential to be well prepared for this meeting. The issues discussed should be more about your overall cancer care rather than about a surgical procedure. You must be engaged with the key topics outlined in our “Breast Surgery Course.” We created the Breast Cancer School for Patients to prepare you to ask for the very best breast cancer care in your community. Learn everything about your breast cancer. Your breast surgeon is the first person to teach you about your unique breast cancer. You should ask about the threat to your life (usually less than you think) and the treatment options ahead. When you are well informed, you will make better treatment decisions with your breast cancer specialists. Your breast surgeon is your initial source for this information. Watch our video lessons and read the attached information to learn what you need to know about your breast cancer. Use our “Questions” in each lesson to engage your breast cancer specialists in their language to get the information you need to know. Discuss your surgical options. Breast surgeons have a broad knowledge base about chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and radiation therapy. They will formulate the initial direction of your cancer treatment plan. Breast cancer surgery is just one component of the comprehensive treatment plan they will design for you. Surgery is usually the first treatment step in early stage breast cancer. You will discuss the surgical options that are appropriate for your situation. The decision to have a “lumpectomy” or a “mastectomy” requires input from your breast surgeon and a discussion about your personal desires. Make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision. You have time to think about your options and can return to discuss them again with your breast surgeon when needed. Sometimes chemotherapy is the best first step in treating a breast cancer. In this situation, you will have months to contemplate your surgical options while undergoing chemotherapy before surgery. In general, time is usually on your side in making surgical decisions. Does your surgeon work with a “Multidisciplinary Team?” Ask your breast surgeon if he or she works with an accredited breast center team. If your breast surgeon presents your cancer situation to a team of physicians at a “Multidisciplinary Breast Conference” you may benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Some patients have very complicated cancer situations that require this “team approach” to determine a tailored, personalized solution. These brainstorming sessions focusing on you can expand your treatment options and improve your outcome. Many smaller and rural communities do not yet have breast centers, but you can still receive excellent care if there is not one near your home. If there is a breast center in your community and your breast surgeon does not participate, it is important to ask them, “Why do you not participate?” Breast cancer physicians that work as a team may offer you distinct benefits. What “cutting edge” treatment options should I ask about? Recent advancements in breast cancer care are sometimes overlooked. The overarching goal of cutting edge research is to improve outcomes and lessen side effects of treating cancer. You must learn about these advances and specifically ask your breast surgeon if they are appropriate for your breast cancer situation. Our short video lessons in this “Breast Surgery Course” will teach you how to bring these options into your discussions.

NGO gives Nigerian cancer patients second chance at life
A pro-cancer not-for-profit, Project PINK BLUE, is on a journey to change the way Africans think about cancer. PINK BLUE - a health and psychological trust centre, is a cancer organization engaged in cancer awareness, free cancer screenings, support to people battling with cancer, patient navigation, advocacy, fundraising for cancer patients, cancer research and psychological support. The outreach passionately reaches the hard-to-reach communities, touches the rural areas, slides the hinterlands and connects the urban with cancer patients; while revolutionizing Nigeria’s health sector. At the National Health Dialogue which held in Abuja on Friday, the cancer-centred non-profit pitched cancer survivors it had supported to attain remission or total defeat of the dreaded disease. Project Pink Blue is driven by reason and logic, not just passion and emotion to reduce the incidence of cancer and phase-out advanced/late detection of cancer in Nigeria. Nigeria has been rated the 1st nation in Africa and 5th in the world with highest cervical cancer deaths with over 26 women dying daily. Breast cancer incidence is higher with 90 new cases per 100 000 women annually in some western countries, compared with 30 per 100 000 in some African countries. In contrast, breast cancer deaths are almost identical, at about 15 per 100 000, which clearly points that late diagnosis and much poorer survival in Africa. PINK BLUE aims to change this statistics.

PSA for Georgia's Breast Cancer License Tag Program
Did you know that $22 of the fee for every breast cancer license tag sold goes to help women in need? Yes, for each breast cancer license tag purchased from the Georgia Department of Revenue, $22 of your fee supports grants for organizations that provide screenings, education and treatment for Georgians without insurance that are also below the poverty level. Georgia CORE administers the Georgia Access, Care, Treatment and Services (ACTS) Breast Cancer Grant on behalf of the Georgia State Office of Rural Health. In 2012, nearly $1.1 million was awarded to 16 community organizations from the sale of breast cancer license tags. Located across the state, these organizations use the funds to expand breast cancer education, screening, access, outreach and treatment to Georgians in need. The more breast cancer license tags sold in Georgia, the more services and education provided to those Georgians that may not otherwise have that access. Please find out how you can purchase a breast cancer license tag by visiting your county tag office. To find the location of your tag office, please visit the Georgia Department of Revenue web site. Put a breast cancer license tag on your car to show support and help Georgia's needy women.

NAPBC Breast Centers: Accreditation means Quality
We teach you about multidisciplinary breast cancer care. You will get better care when your breast cancer specialists work together as a team. This is the foundation of NAPBC accredited Breast Centers. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ___________________________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Specialists: 1. Do you participate with an NAPBC accredited Breast Center? 2. Will you present my case to a Multidisciplinary Breast Conference? 3. May I meet your Breast Cancer Patient Navigator? 4. Do you work with a team of breast cancer specialists? 5. If you do not participate, would I benefit from a Breast Center? What is a Breast Center? Accredited Breast Centers are places where breast cancer physicians and healthcare facilities work together as a team to achieve the best possible breast cancer outcomes. These centers can be small or large and are multiplying into smaller communities across the country. The main benefit is that participating physicians can present your unique cancer situation at a Multidisciplinary Breast Conference. This discussion about you with other breast cancer specialists explores your treatments options to make sure “no stone is left unturned.” Breast cancer care is very complicated and there are sometimes multiple options for treating the same patient. Research has shown that cancer outcomes are better when you have a team, working together for you. Another advantage for newly diagnosed patients is the personalized assistance you will get from a Breast Cancer Patient Navigator. Patient navigator programs are designed to help patients navigate the complicated journey from diagnosis through treatment. The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) is the driver for developing quality breast centers across the country. The NAPBC has developed numerous quality standards and services that are required for breast centers to be NAPBC accredited. Breast centers with this accreditation meet these standards and actively work as a team to assure quality breast cancer care in their respective communities. What is a Multidisciplinary Team and Conference? All accredited breast centers have a multidisciplinary team of breast cancer specialists that meet and review the treatment options for every newly diagnosed breast cancer patient. If your breast surgeon presents your unique situation to a team of physicians at a “Multidisciplinary Breast Conference” you may benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Some patients have very complicated cancer situations that requires this team approach to determine a tailored, personalized solution. Breast cancer specialists that actively participate in breast centers also learn from each other how to better care for their own patients. We recommend seeking out a NAPBC accredited breast center if it is available in your community. What if my physician does not participate in a Breast Center? Many smaller and rural communities do not yet have breast centers and you can still receive excellent care if there is not a breast center near your home. But if there is a breast center in your community and your breast surgeon does not participate, it is important to ask them, “Why not?” Breast cancer physicians that work with an accredited breast center team may be able to offer you unique and important benefits. Breast Patient Navigators are your personal advocate Breast Patient Navigators are trained to help you through the complexities of your breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. This journey requires making physician appointments, learning about your unique cancer, and undergoing tests and treatments that can tax your strength and endurance. Breast Patient Navigators know each step ahead and are your advocate to make sure you get the best care possible. Ask your breast surgeon if you can be introduced their breast center Breast Patient Navigator immediately upon being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Thinking Pink to Raise Breast Cancer Awareness
Land O'Lakes Purina Feed is thinking pink this fall with its first ever Purina Pink 50 Campaign, an effort that united animal lovers everywhere and raise awareness and support for breast cancer research -- a health issue that affects one out of eight women in the United States and their families each year. With the help of local Purina Feed dealers, Purina's Pink 50 Campaign included more than 50 events across the country from September to November with most taking place during October which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each event had a common purpose -- to promote breast cancer research and provide support, particularly in rural communities where breast cancer services aren't often as readily available as compared to metropolitan areas. "The purpose of the Pink 50 Campaign was to reach out to women in rural America-- raising awareness about breast cancer, educating and sharing information and supporting one another," said Christy Goodwin, Marketing Manager, Land O'Lakes Purina Feed. In addition to the Pink 50 events that took place across the nation, Purina turned its top animal feed packages pink, donating a portion of the proceeds from every pink bag sold to breast cancer research. Select animal feeds included Equine Senior®, Strategy® GX, and Omolene #200® horse feeds, Layena® SunFresh® Recipe poultry feed, Rabbit ChowTM Complete Natrual AdvantEdge® rabbit food and Goat Chow® goat feed.
