WWE Superstars Surprise Florida Hospital for Children Patients with an Afternoon of Fun
Florida Hospital for Children was center ring this afternoon thanks to a big surprise — a seriously big surprise, as WWE Superstars took time out of their busy schedules to come by for an afternoon of fun, laughter and crafts. Kids and parents alike were all smiles as they marveled at and mingled with their visitors, who split their time between a group event and special room-to-room patient visits. Big Show was joined by WWE Superstars Bayley, Nia Jax, Sami Zayn and Titus O’Neil, as well as NXT Superstar Ember Moon. They’re all in town for WrestleMania 33, the WWE’s premier annual event, which will take place April 2 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. The Superstars are making stops around Central Florida in the lead-up to the event. For the patients and their families, the couple of hours away from the procedures and monotony that come with long hospital stays was a more-than-welcome distraction.

Pediatric Cancer Research at Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
At the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD), our impressive team of pediatric specialists is as committed to researching new treatments and cures as they are to providing the very highest level of clinical care for children. In fact, our leading edge research informs our care - and our care helps us advance our research.. We operate focused programs in pediatric cancer research (the Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research) and sickle cell disease (the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Research Program). Our federally funded, comprehensive hemophilia program in Jacksonville also serves our patients in Pensacola and Orlando. Through the combined expertise of physicians and researchers across our children’s health system (at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando. Florida, Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville, Floria and and Nemours Children's Clinic, Pensacola Florida), we have almost unmatched resources available to bring the latest advances in science from the laboratory bench to the bedside, to share information, and to arrive at best practices in children’s health. Across all of our sites, we support (and often lead) many Children’s Oncology Group (COG) clinical trials and investigator-initiated studies, with ongoing collaboration among our clinicians, hematology/oncology specialists and researchers. At any given time, we’re involved in about 100 COG and 25 non-COG clinical trials — many of our patients participate in clinical trials of one type or other. We also conduct additional studies in our research labs. For more information, visit nemours.org/cancercenter

WKMG News6 Orlando: Child Fighting Cancer Creates Hospital Friendly T-Shirts
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.

Florida Hospital for Children opened the first and only pediatric bone marrow transplant unit in Central Florida, under the direction of Dr. Paul Gordon, medical director of the pediatric bone marrow transplant program at Florida Hospital for Children. Though they have been providing stem cell transplants to pediatric patients since June 2011, this new facility has been designed with the latest technology and equipped with the best staff. They have diligently worked to make this new 8-bed unit as kid-friendly and scare-free as possible for children dealing with cancer and other blood disorders. The rooms are very colorful and provide customizable lighting. View the video below to get a glimpse of the new bone marrow transplant unit.
Pediatric Cancer Care - Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
The Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders helps your child and family throughout the entire cancer journey — from diagnosis to survivorship and beyond. With our long-time membership and leadership in the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a world-renowned organization exclusively dedicated to pediatric cancer research, we offer the most advanced treatments available in a compassionate, family-centered environment. Our expert pediatric hematologists and oncologists at the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (or “NCCBD,” for short) work closely with our board-certified specialists representing many medical disciplines from the Delaware Valley (Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, Delaware) and throughout Florida (Nemours Chilcren's Hospital, Orlando, Florida; Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville, Florida; Nemours Children's Clinic, Pensacola, Florida) to offer families world-class care. Nemours is also one of only two National Cancer Institute-designated pediatric Community Oncology Research Programs (or “NCORPs”) in the nation. As an NCORP institute, we work together, across our campuses in the North and South, to give kids with cancer truly comprehensive, well-informed care. For example, many children benefit from our weekly system-wide “tumor board” meetings, when specialists representing various medical disciplines in the Delaware Valley and throughout Florida come together to discuss complex cancer cases. It’s like getting a second opinion from the nation’s best pediatric cancer doctors and scientists without making an appointment. As an established system of pediatric oncology and hematology care, we pool our expertise and resources across our campuses to give your child the most comprehensive care possible. Together, our goal is simple: To get your child back to being a kid as soon as possible.At Nemours, we do everything in our power to beat childhood cancer and to bring your family real hope for brighter days to come.

New Pediatric ER at Shands will enhance emergency care for children
Children are not small adults. This is never more evident than when an accident or urgent medical problem arises and parents need fast access to specialized care designed to meet their child's needs. On July 1, the new Pediatric Emergency Room at Shands Hospital for Children at the University of Florida will open, becoming north central Florida's first emergency room specifically geared toward kids. Located at Shands at the University of Florida, the Pediatric ER will have a separate entrance with free valet parking for adults transporting children, and an adjacent parking garage for visitors. Calming, child-friendly décor with a nautical theme enhances the check-in and waiting areas, with porthole windows, saltwater aquariums and floors made to look like waves adding to the atmosphere. More important, families will have access to an expanded team of UF pediatric emergency medicine physicians and Shands pediatric emergency-trained nurses, additional treatment space and the latest medical technology. "This new Pediatric ER benefits our patients and our UF&Shands teams," said Jennifer Light, M.D., UF College of Medicine clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine and Pediatric ER medical director. "We've created an environment just for families, staffed by people committed to the care of children. This generates great positive energy and the opportunity for us to improve services and the whole experience for young patients and their families." The Pediatric ER will be staffed by seven UF board-certified or board-eligible pediatric emergency medicine physicians and 22 Shands pediatric-trained emergency medicine registered nurses. The team will be able to treat up to 24,000 pediatric emergency patients a year.

UF Health Cancer Center - Orlando Health Proton Accelerator Delivery
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.
Stem cell transplant in children: what to expect | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
What is a stem cell transplant and how does it work? Leslie Lehmann, MD, Clinical Director of the Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Program at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center, explains how she talks to patients and families about the stem cell transplant process and what to expect during and after treatment, as well as the variety of emotional and practical support resources available at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center. Learn more about our pediatric stem cell transplant program: http://www.dana-farber.org/Pediatric-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Pediatric-Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Pediatric-Stem-Cell-Transplantation.aspx Transcription: Dr. Lehmann: A stem cell transplant is really officially called ‘hematopoietic stem cell transplant,’ and what it means is that we are getting rid of somebody’s bone marrow in their body totally with a combination of very high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy and replacing it with someone else’s blood-forming elements, either from a family member or an unrelated donor. The reason that it works and offers something to patients struggling with cancers and leukemias is there’s two parts to that. One is that we deliver very, very high doses of therapy that wouldn’t be safe unless we put in someone else’s marrow to rescue, and the hope is that that very strong preparatory regimen gets rid of the last bits of cancer in the body. The second piece is that it allows us to deliver a new immune system, and there’s also data that a new immune system can help get rid of the last bits of cancer in the body. So together, the package is a way to increase the chance of curing somebody who has a malignancy of the bone marrow. Preparing a child for transplant is complicated. It obviously depends on the age of the child a lot. The main message we want to convey is that we are trying to cure the child so that they can go back and have the life that they had before the cancer diagnosis and that in order to do that or achieve that goal, we need to make them quite sick for a period of time in the hospital, and then also interfere with the quality of their life for months after that. What we try to tell families before a transplant is that it’s a marathon, not a sprint, and it’s easy to just focus on the part in the hospital, and that’s also often where people are giving you the most support—external people, like friends and family. But actually the months after the transplant are often just as complicated. Basically because your immune system is new, you can’t be out in the community for somewhere between 4 and 8 months after the transplant, which means that you can’t go to school and you can’t go to stores. You can see friends outside, but you can’t see friends inside your house, and that requires a lot of support from the whole family. So, we have a lot of support that’s in place for the child and the family in addition to the medical support, and we always say it takes a huge team to actually get somebody through transplant and through the months after transplant. Every family or child has a psychologist or social worker assigned to them who provides a lot of emotional and psychological support. We have a child life specialist program on the [inaudible 02:47] Unit that is fabulous, and also one in the outpatient clinic, and they spend hours working with children of all ages doing projects, activities, playing the guitar… We have spiritual support with a chaplaincy service at the Children’s Hospital, and we have a lot of financial support with a resource specialist that meets with every family as well. There really is a group of people that can help families with the non-medical piece of the transplant. The goal is cure, and at the end of the process, we have a lot of children who are happy and healthy and reintegrated back into their community. But the road to get there is very complicated, and we just want to give as much support as we can on that road.

Be Brave Childhood Cancer Awareness iPhone App
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.
