WKMG News6 Orlando: Child Fighting Cancer Creates Hospital Friendly T-Shirts
 
02:02
ORLANDO, Fla. - A 9-year-old boy fighting cancer is finding strength by spreading comfort to other children with a special T-shirt. Luke Lange came up with the idea during his hospital stays in Fort Worth, Texas, when he had to wear a hospital gown. Luke said the hospital gown made him “feel more sick.” "He said, 'I hate the hospital gowns. I just want to feel like a normal kid.' And so (he) and his mom cut up the sides of his T-shirts and sewed in snap tape," said Britton Lynn, Luke's babysitter. His design, called Luke’s FastBreaks, works like tearaway basketball pants, with snaps sewn up the sides to allow for easy access to IVs, lines and ports. It didn't take long for the idea to spread to more children's hospitals, including Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando. "It's amazing, especially for a little boy to think of it and be so selfless and think of others," said Bethany Vanhorn, the mother of a 2-year-old patient at Nemours. The Luke’s FastBreaks medical shirts come in pink, navy, black, blue, camouflage, purple, white and red. The sizes range from toddler to youth all the way up to adult XXL, allowing every child and teenager who is staying in the hospital for a long time a shirt that fits properly. The shirts are donated to oncology and hematology patients at hospitals free of charge. As of November, 5,000 medical shirts have been donated through the nonprofit to children in 17 states, 25 cities and 30 hospitals and Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Be Brave Childhood Cancer Awareness iPhone App
 
00:30
Hearing four simple words can change a family forever: Your child has cancer. On average, 46 families in the United States hear that diagnosis every day. Now iPhone users can help some of those families by downloading a new photo-sharing app offered by the Be Brave Foundation. The Be Brave Foundation provides financial support to the families of young cancer patients in Central Florida. Fighting cancer often stretches families to their breaking point emotionally, spiritually and financially. They incur an ongoing stream of expenses not covered by insurance – which is an added burden that takes their attention away from focusing on the young patient and his or her siblings. The foundation recently launched an iPhone photo app (https://appsto.re/us/LfNN5.i) allowing users to decorate pictures with frames that show support for childhood cancer fighters, and then share them through social media networks. The company releasing the app, Brave Designs, donates their portion of each 99-cent download directly to the Be Brave Foundation, allowing the group to provide more assistance to families battling pediatric cancer. “My wife and I started our foundation in June of 2014 after spending the previous 14 months watching our son battle cancer from the age of 3½,” said Jeremy Chambers, co-founder of the Be Brave Foundation. “Now that he is doing well, this foundation and the app are simply our way of giving back to help other families, to raise the level of awareness, and hopefully bring more funding towards a cure for childhood cancer.” Since June of 2014, the volunteer staff at Be Brave has raised more than $70,000 and provided financial relief to more than 100 families. About Be Brave Be Brave Foundation provides financial assistance to families in Central Florida with a child battling cancer. By removing some of the financial burden associated with treating pediatric cancer, families can focus on their child’s care and condition. The foundation also accepts donated new and gently used portable electronic devices to provide patients with educational and entertainment outlets during treatment.

Jackie Roberge, Holistic Cancer Coach asks Anita to address the issue of caring for children with cancer. How best do parents and relatives support the children and console themselves? Anita touches on the importance of not feeling guilty or blaming anyone and not having the children feel it is their fault. The other key point that she makes is that it is essential for all caregivers to take care of themselves. Although it is tempting, it is not productive to give all your time and energy to helping a child or loved one, leaving nothing left for yourself. Anita's message of loving yourself and bringing joy into your life applies equally to people healing from cancer and those dedicated parents and family members caring for a loved ones of any age. Until next time, be and love your true and wonderful self! Jackie

2017 iCAN Research Annual Summit - Highlights
 
03:32
The 2017 iCAN Research & Advocacy Summit took place in Orlando, Florida from July 10-14, once again with the goal of bringing together youth, families and professionals to learn from one another and provide youth with opportunities to improve pediatric health, medicine, research, and innovation by sharing children’s voices in an impactful way. This successful event saw a forty percent increase in attendance from last year, bringing together 250 youth advisors and their families, team leaders, and scientific partners. 19 of iCAN’s 20 chapters were represented, with members from 8 countries on 3 continents. The 2017 Summit was dedicated to the memory of Félix Junquera Tejeda, a beloved youth advisor of the KIDS Barcelona chapter who lost his courageous battle with Osteosarcoma just weeks before the event. iCAN’s first-ever scholarship will be created in his name, and will cover costs for an outstanding youth advisor to attend the Summit each year. iCAN youth advisors and leadership were joined by special guest speakers from the US FDA, Health Canada, Pfizer, Premier Research, PhRMA, Eli Lilly, InVentiv Health, the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Advances in Therapeutics and Technology, BIO, the Florida Department of Health, Boehringer Ingelheim, Live Like Bella, Dairy Council of Florida, various children’s hospitals from around the world, and more. Attendees engaged with scientific leaders to learn about topics in medicine, research, innovation, pharmacogenomics, STEM careers, drug discovery and development, healthy lifestyles, patient advocacy, how to assess basic vital signs, and had multiple opportunities to learn about and provide feedback on pediatric informed consent and assent documents. Summit attendees also visited the Give Kids the World Village, received a tour of the facility to learn about its purpose and history, and participated in a hands-on community service activity to benefit the many visitors of the Village each year. iCAN was honored to welcome Florida State Senator Marco Rubio, who discussed the importance of patient engagement in research and healthcare, as well as the need for increased research of childhood cancers. iCAN Summit 2017 attendees at Give Kids the WorldiCAN introduced three new chapters to the growing network this year: KIDS Bari (Italy), KIDS Tokyo (Japan), and the first- ever iCAN Special Interest Chapter, KIDS Childhood Cancer. This new chapter model will connect youth and families from across the globe in specific therapeutic areas to allow us to target the specific needs of each disease, while allowing additional room for collaboration with preexisting organizations with similar goals to reduce duplicate efforts and fortify a stronger and more effective approach to change. Recognition from important figures and the rapid growth of this event and network observed from year to year demonstrate the growing support of iCAN’s initiatives in a dynamic and constantly changing field, where patient and public engagement is quickly becoming a standard. For more information, visit our website: https://icanresearch.org/annual-summit/2017-orlando-florida/ The next iCAN Research & Advocacy Summit will take place in July, 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

UF Health Cancer Center - Orlando Health Proton Accelerator Delivery
 
03:11
November 2nd 2014: Mevion Medical Systems is announcing the delivery of its MEVION S250 proton therapy superconducting synchrocyclotron accelerator to the University of Florida Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health. The accelerator delivery is a major milestone in the construction of the center’s new proton beam therapy system, which will treat cancer in adults and children. Proton therapy precisely delivers radiation doses to tumors while sparing much of the surrounding healthy tissue, thus making it ideal for treating pediatric patients, as well as adult cancers in sensitive locations such as near the heart or brain. As Central Florida’s most advanced cancer center, the University of Florida Health Cancer Center is the first hospital in the region to install a proton therapy system. Installation of the accelerator will take just a few days, and construction of the proton center is expected to be completed next year.

Amazon 5000 for the Cure

http://www.amazonjoe.stayclassy.org http://www.equip2endure.com Hey guys, I'm going to the Amazon to Raise money for Cancer! But not without your help! I know how to make a child smile, and with this trip, this is the most absolute way to touch the lives of those young people who cherish life the most. Through my enthusiasm and vigor, please help me show them that they are path makers themselves. My minimum is $3,000. I hope to surpass that, while engraving memories in the children I can communicate with through one of biggest adventures of my life, with others, on the Amazon 5000 expedition for the cure. How? I became a finalist on Amazon 5000 - For the Cure, a foundation that is partnering with local children's cancer organization, BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation (www.basecamp.org), the Ronald McDonald House of Orlando (www.rmhccf.org) and the pediatric oncology program at Florida Hospital for Children (www.floridahospitalforchildren.com). These children facing cancer will be able to track Mickey Grosman, and myself in real time throughout the duration on this history making journey. Mickey, myself, and the expedition team will interact with his fans across the globe through LIVE Satellite broadcasting from the Jungle. Logging in to their computers, fans will be able to follow the expedition on google maps(http://g.co/maps/bqwkg), watch live video stream through ustream.tv and get updates on Facebook and Twitter. Florida Hospital will provide access to such communication sessions through their Get Well inpatient television network. The Amazon 5000 foundation is a nonprofit corporation and has been created to support this call: Raising funds to benefit and assist cancer patients and their families at their needy time is an important goal. Proceeds from contributions will also be donated to cancer fighting organizations and will support the research for cure. Ok, I know for some of you money is tight, say you can't make a donation at this point, can you help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page! Thanks so much for your generosity!
