How Do I Tell My Kids That Mommy Has Cancer?

by Megan Pomputius

How Do I Tell My Kids That Mommy Has Cancer? Still My Mommy book

There were many questions that raced through my mind when I was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer. One of the biggest questions, was how I was going to tell my 2-year-old daughter who was at my bedside in the hospital after my surgery. She didn’t even know what the word “cancer” meant. She saw that mommy had a big boo-boo and wanted to kiss it and make it better. Then as the doctors took care of me and she watched, she would practice on her baby dolls. Then as I lost my hair, she watched as I finally shaved all of it off. She knew something was different. I looked for other resources to help guide her through this, but never found anything I liked. As a mom diagnosed with cancer, you are faced with so many different decisions and choices that trying to find a good book for your child(ren) shouldn’t have to be one of them. After my diagnosis, a feeling in my heart just kept wanting to produce something to help other women going through this diagnosis in their lives. I finally decided that writing a children’s book was what I was meant to do. I wrote the story Still My Mommy that demonstrates the relationship between a mother and daughter before, during, and after the diagnosis to help moms explain that changes may happen but we are still the same amazing moms. It features beautiful illustrations by Andrea Alemanno who resides in Italy and was contracted through Mascot Books.

The story begins featuring the relationship between mom and daughter and all of the fun things that they do together; baking, playing outside, reading books.  Then it shows mom going to the hospital and getting a boo-boo and how the little girl takes care of her dolls just like the nurses did. It features them shopping for wigs together, mommy being tired some days, but at the end of the story, (still bald), she is still the same amazing mommy, no matter what the outcome of the disease.

After Scarlett (age 4) read the story with her mommy, it brought up a lot of questions as she asked, “what’s a wig”, ‘why doesn’t her mommy have any hair?” I want this to be a story that can create dialog for parents to speak with their kids about what this disease can do to people.  Joz (age 5) asked her mom to read the story, ‘three more times’ after reading it for the first time. My daughter (age 4) loves reading this story, but always tells me, ‘mommy, don’t make your hair like that again’.  Even though she doesn’t know the word ‘CANCER’ she still understands that it was a time in all our lives that we don’t want to relive.

The book was published by Mascot Books and is for sale at their website www.mascotbooks.com.  Books can also be purchased and autographed at Megan’s blog www.stillmymommy.weebly.com and is listed for $14.95.

About the author: Megan Pomputius lives in Pennsylvania and teaches 4th grade. Her daughter will be going into Kindergarten this year. Megan was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June of 2013 and has been in remission following surgery and chemotherapy treatments.

Improve Comfort Beneath the Breast During Radiation Therapy with a ComfortSling®

By Elizabeth Silver

 

My personal journey began when I was faced with radiotherapy following a lumpectomy for breast cancer.  I created a cushioned sling to minimize the burning side effects on the skin beneath my breast. It was remarkably effective.  I realize that skin types vary, but other than my skin becoming slightly darkened, I had virtually no other side effects. No burns, no chafing.  The wicking fabric prevented accumulation of perspiration and the soft cushions protected my skin from the abrasion of skin to skin contact.  With the support of my doctors, I tested this device with several other women undergoing radiation, and they too reported significantly minimized and/or delayed skin reactions.

Encouraged by this success, I determined to develop the products further to bring them to market so more women could find relief and protection while undergoing radiation and chemotherapy.  We found the softest fabrics to provide the most effective cushion to cradle and protect the skin; we found equally soft straps and made them fully adjustable so there would be no undue pressure on sore areas beneath the breast.  We are very proud of the results.

 

Our product was launched in the fall of 2014, and the feedback we have received has exceeded our expectations with women reporting to us that “The sling saved the day.” and   “I found instant relief where I didn’t even realize that I needed it”.

 

Exciting news!   BreastComfort is delighted to announce that we have begun 2016 with a new partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation –the highest-rated breast cancer charity in the nation.  We are proud to donate 5% of every sale to the BRCF. The BreastComfort logo will be featured on BCRF’s  website at:  www.bcrfcure.org/partners.  It is deeply gratifying to be associated with such an outstanding organization in the fight against this terrible disease.

How Breathing Exercises During Cancer Treatment Can Relieve Stress During the Holidays

written by: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff

Women undergoing treatment for breast cancer may find themselves highly stressed and are encouraged to look for complementary therapies to ease this stress.  Breathing is one therapy of great value in reducing stress during the holidays.  Developing a breathing practice helps place the patient’s unsettled and anxious mind at ease and allows for the coming back to a “normal” quality of life. This way holidays can be experienced with joy and not dread.

Breathing to Reduce Stress During the Holidays

Breathing to Reduce Stress During the Holidays

Learning specific breathing exercises found on our Breathe With Purpose CD and creating a daily breathing practice as described below will help overcome stress and anxiety during cancer treatments this holiday season.

Beginners Guide To Starting A Breathing Exercise Practice

• Start with 5 or 10 minutes first and gradually increase up to one hour.
• Be as comfortable as possible by wearing warm, loose clothing.
• Breathing exercises should be performed ideally three hours after meals, allowing the stomach to be empty.
• Your mouth should be clean and fresh.
• We recommended breathing exercises be done early in the morning however, breathing exercises can be enjoyed anytime especially when under stress and anxiety.
• Find a place that is quiet and airy; a place where no one or thing can distract you or the breathing practice.
• Find a time of the day where you can establish a rhythm or routine and try to stick it; build a strong foundation.

Breathing exercises may be done in a space we hold for ourselves to be quiet and draw in positives for our mind and spirit. The stress is not supported in this space but only our wellness, and of course the holiday joy. Happy holidays to everyone from all of us at Breast Cancer Yoga.

A Unique Approach Using Food As Medicine To Decrease Side Effects of Cancer Treatment

Cooking Through Cancer Treatment To Recovery” by Dr. Lisa Price ND and Susan Gins, Certified Nutritionist, is a unique cookbook in many ways. Written for family and friends, as well as people going through cancer treatment, the focus is to use food to decrease the side effects of treatment. At the same time this approach improves the quality of life by making the patient feel better, hopefully using less prescription medicine for common side effects, lightening the load on the liver and empowering people to take an active, positive part in their lives.

Cooking From Cancer Treatment to Recovery

Recipe on cover: Artichoke, Bean, Hazelnut and Asparagus Salad

 

Here is a partial list of criteria we used and why we used it:

  1. All the recipes are hypoallergenic and do not contain gluten, dairy, processed sugar or soy. 
  • Why?  Many people are sensitive or allergic and try to avoid these ingredients.  Not eliminating these foods? Then use the recipes and substitute what works for you!

 

2.    98% of the recipes are only four steps long.

  •  Why?  We did not want to add more stress to anyone’s life who was using the cookbook.  We kept it simple and flavorful. We included a shopping list guide to stock your pantry.

3.     All the recipes have Nutrition Facts information.

  • Why?  We want people to have a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrates, fiber and good fat. In addition, people going through treatment may have other medical problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, irritable bowel, etc. With Nutrition Facts, it’s easy to see how the recipes fit into their Doctor’s diet recommendations.

4.     Each recipe is coded for symptoms and treatment phases.

  • Why? It’s easy to see for example, if you are going through chemo and you have fatigue or nausea, you can read on the each recipe if it’s good for these issues. There’s a symbol with a letter: P/S=Pretreatment & Surgery, R=Radiation; C=Chemo; H=Hormonal Therapy; R/P=Remission and Prevention.
  • In addition, Dr. Price has created a grid in the back of the book that lists all the treatment phases and the side effects and leads you to the recipes that are recommended for example, constipation, joint pain muscle aches, nausea during chemo. There are eight pages of this grid that cover every treatment phase and all the most documented side effects of treatment.
  • There are many recipes to choose from so you can pick one or many that appeal to you at the time.
  • Each recipe has a Health Tip 101 explaining certain nutrients and why they are important to you.

 

Delicious Recipe from the cookbook

Recipe pictured: Bibimpap

It is well documented in scientific journals that people who are able to stay healthy during treatment have better outcomes and are able to transition to their pre-treatment lives more easily. The particular nutrients-vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, good fats-included in each recipe have been studied to have positive effects decreasing the symptoms of cancer treatment. Using the recipes in our book will support you in remission and prevention.

Of Mice and Women: Investigating the Breast Cancer Virus

By Vera Gruessner

Dr. Kathleen Ruddy

Dr. Kathleen Ruddy

Have you heard about the breast cancer virus in mice? There is significant evidence that this virus is linked to human breast cancers. Dr. Kathleen T. Ruddy, a New Jersey-based breast cancer surgeon and Founder of the Breast Health and Healing Foundation, released her executive summary about her soon-to-be-published book “Of Mice and Women:  Unraveling the Mystery of the Breast Cancer Virus.” By June 2015, the book will be published and available in both print and digital formats. To learn more about the upcoming book, you can read the executive summary on the Breast Health and Healing website by clicking here.

In your free time, take a minute to download the executive summary (which is completely free) and share on your social networks! Let your close ones know about the innovative and intriguing book. Over the last eight years, Dr. Kathleen Ruddy wrote and revised this book and is now ready to finish publishing it in paper and electronic formats. Want to know the best part of it all? The digital version will be free to the public at large!

Of Mice and Women

Of Mice and Women (new book)

Did you know that 40 percent of human breast cancers have gene sequences that are analogous to a retrovirus known to cause breast cancer in mice? The retrovirus found in mice is called the mouse mammary tumor virus. Further research on the breast cancer virus is necessary to determine strategies that would prevent this serious medical condition. The researchers Drs. Pogo, Etkind, and Melena have spent decades studying the Pink Virus and its role in human breast cancer.

If we can prove that a virus causes up to 40 percent of human breast cancers, the scientific community can work toward creating a vaccine that would prevent this disease in men and women around the world. This would be an amazing opportunity to eradicate the disease once and for all!

Does the human mammary tumor virus cause breast cancer in women? If so, we need to develop vaccines that can prevent the disease.

Any and all donations that the Breast Health and Healing Foundation gains from the release of the executive summary and the book will be put toward funding the full-length documentary film, “A Pox On Us,” co-produced with Soap Box Media. The profits from the film will be used to directly fund research on the breast cancer virus.

We hope the executive summary and the book will spread like wildfire through the breast cancer community. To achieve this goal, we need your help! Please share it on Facebook. Share it on Twitter. Share it on Google+. Share it on LinkedIn. Let your friends and family know about this revolutionary work!

Inspirational New Book Shares Stories And Lessons From Miracle Cancer Survivors

by Tami Boehmer  (Award winning author, blogger, and speaker)

Next month, it will be seven years since I learned I had metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer. It was my worst nightmares come true. I had just celebrated five cancer-free years after being diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. My daughter had just turned nine years old. My first thought was, “Will I be around to raise her?”

According to statistics and a couple of doctors I spoke with, it was highly unlikely. One told me I would “most certainly die of breast cancer.” No doubt about it. I responded, “I’m too stubborn to die”, then left determined to prove her wrong.

I recently read a quote on a metastatic breast cancer Facebook page: “Faith sees the invisible, believes in the incredible, and receives the impossible.” — Anonymous. My faith was shaky when I was first diagnosed, but there was a spark there waiting to be ignited.

I had spent my career in health care public relations, where I wrote success stories about patients who beat the odds of illnesses. I took a permanent leave of absence after being diagnosed this second time, but started feeling empty and depressed. I decided to use my experience and share stories of people who had beaten the odds of stage IV cancer.

When I started interviewing individuals for my first book, From Incurable to Incredible, I had only seven months under my belt as a stage IV breast cancer survivor. My primary goal was to inspire hope and show that it was possible to beat the odds of a terminal or incurable prognosis. Not just for my readers; but for me, as well.

In Nov. 2014, my second book, Miracle Survivors: Beating the Odds of Incurable Cancer, was released by Skyhorse Publishing. I share my story, along with 23 other cancer survivors from around the country. With many years under my belt as a survivor, I got to know more people who are thriving years beyond what anyone expected and have learned many lessons from my own “school of hard knocks.” The book reflects my new perspective, as well as those of others like Carole Kubrin, who has been living with stage IV, HER2-positive breast cancer since 1998, and Greg Cantwell, a stage IV glioblastoma multiforme (the most aggressive form of brain cancer) survivor since 2004.

to buy Miracle Survivors by Tami Boehmer from Amazon, click on the image above

The book also includes an introduction by best-selling author Bernie Siegel, MD, and forewords by miracle survivors ePatient Dave deBronkart (a stage IV renal cancer survivor since 2007), the best-known spokesman for the patient engagement movement, and award-winning blues vocalist Curtis Salgado (diagnosed with stage IV renal cancer in 2007), who was the inspiration for the movie, The Blues Brothers.

While I call the individuals in this book, “miracle survivors,” overcoming the odds wasn’t something that just happened to them. Each person took a very active role in overcoming their challenges by becoming advocates for themselves and others and never giving up.

There are no winners or losers or the right or wrong way to deal with cancer and other major life challenges. But I know from experience and from talking with hundreds of people living with cancer that how we live our life is a choice. As the recently departed ESPN commentator Stuart Scott said, “You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live.” That’s what my work is all about.

Among other promising developments discussed are advances in imaging, recognition of breast density as a risk factor, and a section focused on “personalized medicine” to help determine what kind of cancer you have and how best to treat it.  Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Love’s book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.
