Today on the podcast, I'm sharing part two of a two part series of interviews with the founders of The Chick Mission which is a national foundation that is working together to preserve hope, sanity, and choice for women battling cancer. They are focused on making sure that all women diagnosed with cancer have the financial support, educational information, and legislative advocacy to preserve their fertility. After personal experiences, founders Amanda Rice and Tracy Weiss came together to make sure that all cancer patients have a full life with options to grow a family, after they beat the disease. Tracy Weiss is the Executive Director of Chick Mission. She is also a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with cancer at the age 30. Her insurance company denied her claim to preserve her fertility, describing it as an ‘elective' procedure. Tracy partnered with Amanda to start The Chick Mission to help other women facing the same challenges. Read the article on Dr. Aimee's Website.

After chemo, radiation and long-term drug therapy, she started fertility treatment. She's focused on helping other patients find ways to cover the costs of fertility preservation, as socioeconomic standing should not be a factor in anyone wanting to pursue having biological children after they are diagnosed with cancer.

⚡ There's a diversity mismatch in the oncology workforce. One of the biggest challenges in the oncology space is a lack of diversity in the workforce. The population of the United States is very diverse, while the oncology field is not. Dr. Upal Basu Roy says, "We know that the United States is very diverse. As we speak, the population is very diverse, and we have about 12% African Americans in the population — about 18% who identify as Hispanic/Latinx — and 3% of the population who identify as American Indians and Alaska natives. But is that diversity reflected in the oncology workforce? Absolutely not. So we have a problem. So if you look at the latest statistics from the ASCO workforce report in 2020, only 5% of oncologists identify as Hispanic/Latinx, 3% as Black or African American, and 0.1% as American Indian and Alaska native. So we have this mismatch."⚡ Patients have better health outcomes when treated by doctors who look like them.   Dr. Upal Basu Roy explains, "The population is very diverse, but the workforce is not diverse. So keeping that in mind, we created the Health Equity and Inclusiveness Research Awards specifically to foster minority scientists. Now you can ask me, ‘Why is that important?' It is fundamentally important to have clinicians who look like patients because there's very good research that's shown that patients have better outcomes when they're treated by doctors who look like them. And patients are way more inclined to participate in clinical trials when those trials are being offered to them by clinicians who look like them."⚡ ‘No One Missed' is an inclusive lung cancer campaign. ‘No One Missed' is a community-led campaign driven by the LUNGevity Foundation. Dr. Upal Basu Roy talks about the campaign's main goals. He says, "As a scientist, I focus on science and innovation. But as a patient advocate, I focus on access. Because I think we need to keep in mind that science is a public good. Innovation is a public good. And we, as a patient advocacy group, need to make sure that the science we fund today reaches patients tomorrow. And biomarker testing targeted therapies are a huge piece of the treatment arsenal of lung cancer, and we, as a foundation, are committed to making sure that these innovative approaches treat patients no matter where they're diagnosed, no matter their gender, sexual orientation, their race and ethnicity, where they live, or their socioeconomic status."

Dr. Kerri Winters-Stone and Dr. Jacob Raber from Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR, describe a recent research paper they co-authored that was published by Oncotarget in Volume 13, entitled, “Association of fall rate and functional status by APOE genotype in cancer survivors after exercise intervention.” DOI - https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.28310 Correspondence to - Jacob Raber - raberj@ohsu.edu Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQK7MK7qfWY Abstract Purpose/Objectives: Cancer treatment survivors often report impaired functioning and increased falls. Not all survivors experience the same symptom burden, suggesting individual susceptibilities. APOE genotype is a potential genetic risk factor for cancer treatment related side effects. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity can mitigate the effect of APOE genotype on measures of clinical interest in individuals without a history of cancer. We tested the hypothesis that APOE genotype influences cancer treatment related side effects and symptoms as well as response to exercise intervention. Materials and Methods: Data from a subsample of a study of fall prevention exercise in post-treatment female cancer survivors aged 50–75 years old (https://clinicaltrials.gov NCT01635413) were used to conduct a secondary data analysis. ApoE genotype was determined by serum sampling. Physical functioning, frequency of falls, and symptom burden were assessed using survey instruments. Results: Data from 126 female cancer survivors a median of 49 months out from cancer diagnosis were analyzed. ApoE4 carriers trended toward a higher fall rate at baseline (p = 0.059), but after exercise intervention had a fall rate lower than E4 non-carriers both immediately after structured intervention (p = 0.013) and after 6 months of follow up (p = 0.002). E2 carriers did not show improved measures of depressive symptoms and self-report disability after exercise intervention. E3 homozygotes showed increased self report physical activity after the 6 month exercise intervention, but E4 and E2 carriers did not. Conclusions: APOE genotype may modulate cancer treatment related side effects and symptoms and response to exercise intervention.

Michelle Gray joins us to share her journey.  Michelle shares, diagnosed with Breast Cancer 2020 - I want to go deep, to express the psychological head games getting diagnosed with Breast Cancer can have on you. Through my own personal journey- What I felt, what I did to keep my spirits high and strong. Those that impacted me on my journey and had a profound effect on keeping my shit together. The highs, the lows, the laughs. The rollercoaster effect of mind, body and spirit. I want to be raw with my feelings. Techniques I used to stay calm in my most worrying moments, waiting on results. The effects it had on my family and friends. The good, the bad and the ugly. How do you cope when you are questioning your time on this earth, the shock of not knowing, no control. Thinking that the things you were controlling in your life before BC were important but soon realise that 99.9% of those things are fixable at any time! Shifting to draw on faith because the Big C is something you can't control, the fear of the uncontrollable. You just want that Crystal Ball so freakin bad!!!! You would chop your arms and legs off and hand them over if that could give you any type of guarantee [ I was on hands and knees pleading with Shanta to just do whatever to get me cancer free " Dont you know " I have 4 kids and a husband!" The shift in mindset........ A 38yr old woman, a Newcastle Mum, shocked, being thrown into a world never imagined, like a freight train going through a building unexpectedly, that was what I felt when being told I had BC...... " I feel like I'm in a bad dream" I said to the Sue, McGrath Nurse. Promising God over and over again that I would be a good person on this Earth if he got me Cancer Free. I'll live this life to the fullest, if you do this for me! Take my Breast! Take My Nipple, take my Lymph Nodes- Take any body part you want!!!! Sorry Big Man I'm here to stay! I want to help Cancer and Non Cancer People cope together. So carers and family can have some insight into a Cancer Patients mind. It's like at the time I split the world up into Cancer and Non Cancer people (hope that's ok to say?!LOL) I want the Non Cancer People to know the minds of Cancer People and bridge the gap of helplessness. If I help One Person cope through this journey and someone says to a Cancer Patient, "I listened to this Podcast the other day, Michelle Gray she had DCIS- Grade 3, 10cm Tumor in her Left Breast, Full Mastectomy- you should listen", then I'm happier than the day I got told I was Cancer Free!!!!

⚡The most critical part is to shorten the time between doing the test and getting the results. From there, doctors will be better positioned to provide the best care to the patient. ''There's always pressure from the patient, the family, and the physician to start therapy as soon as possible. [...] So getting that test earlier allows us to do the right thing for the patients, improve their outcomes, and frankly, reduce costs.⚡Staying up to date with changes is the most noticeable obstacle to providing targeted therapy. We expect medicine and science to advance, resulting in better solutions in healthcare. But sometimes, patients don't feel comfortable exposing themselves to new approaches, such as targeted treatments. However, Dr. Scott thinks differently. ''I don't think that patients would be the barrier because patients want the best therapy with the least toxicity. The barrier is rapid advance. I've been in oncology for a long time, and I think that relying upon what we learned in medical school, what we did in residency and fellowship, and during our training when things are changing so quickly, it becomes more difficult to stay ahead and to stay up to date. Most oncologists in the community are generalists, and those are the typical oncologists I work with. So we've brought tools and programs to help them so that whether it's AI tomorrow in their EMR — their medical record tool — or programs today, we wanna drive awareness and appropriate utilization.''⚡The good news is that we already have tools that ensure efficiency. They result from science and tech companies' continuous and joint efforts. ''Historically, I would have a patient with lung cancer, and I would have to call up the pathology lab at my hospital — because I don't make that diagnosis in my office — and I'd have to ask them to send tissue or blocks via FedEx or UPS to a third party. So there's travel time. Then it would take two or three weeks for that third-party lab to do the analysis. And then, I would get back a report, and typically it'd be 26 to 29 days from that asking to have the test submitted. Now we have companies doing what's called a liquid biopsy or using liquid specimen blood where they can do a very similar analysis. [...] It can be as soon as eight days. So that's one event. The other advance, which is even more exciting, is the ability of clinics or hospitals to put the type of equipment we call next-gen sequencing testing tools into their practice. And if you do that, you eliminate the shipping time there and back, and theoretically, you could get results in three to five days.''

APOE Genotype Determines Cancer Patients Most Likely to Benefit From Exercise

A new research paper was published in Oncotarget's Volume 13 on November 17, 2022, entitled, “Association of fall rate and functional status by APOE genotype in cancer survivors after exercise intervention.” Cancer treatment survivors often report impaired functioning and increased falls. Not all survivors experience the same symptom burden, suggesting individual susceptibilities. APOE genotype is a potential genetic risk factor for cancer treatment related side effects. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity can mitigate the effect of APOE genotype on measures of clinical interest in individuals without a history of cancer. In this new study, researchers Gwendolyn J. McGinnis, Sarah Holden, Betty Yu, Charlton Ransom, Carolyn Guidarelli, Brian De, K Diao, David Boyce, Charles R. Thomas Jr., Kerri Winters-Stone, and Jacob Raber from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Oregon Health and Science University and Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Dartmouth Cancer Center tested the hypothesis that APOE genotype influences cancer treatment related side effects and symptoms as well as response to exercise intervention. “In the current analyses, the modulating effect of apoE genotype on functional status and symptom burden in response to exercise intervention was investigated in a subsample of trial participants.” Data from a subsample of a study of fall prevention exercise in post-treatment female cancer survivors aged 50–75 years old (https://clinicaltrials.gov NCT01635413) were used to conduct a secondary data analysis. ApoE genotype was determined by serum sampling. Physical functioning, frequency of falls, and symptom burden were assessed using survey instruments. Data from 126 female cancer survivors a median of 49 months out from cancer diagnosis were analyzed. ApoE4 carriers trended toward a higher fall rate at baseline (p = 0.059), but after exercise intervention had a fall rate lower than E4 non-carriers both immediately after structured intervention (p = 0.013) and after 6 months of follow up (p = 0.002). E2 carriers did not show improved measures of depressive symptoms and self-report disability after exercise intervention. E3 homozygotes showed increased self report physical activity after the 6 month exercise intervention, but E4 and E2 carriers did not. “The study findings suggest that APOE genotype may be associated with presence and severity of cancer treatment-related side effects and symptoms and also influence the response to exercise-based interventions in cancer survivors.” DOI: https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.28310 Correspondence to: Jacob Raber - raberj@ohsu.edu Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvN9ZDWymz8 Keywords: apoE, breast cancer, exercise intervention, fall rate, functional status About Oncotarget: Oncotarget (a primarily oncology-focused, peer-reviewed, open access journal) aims to maximize research impact through insightful peer-review; eliminate borders between specialties by linking different fields of oncology, cancer research and biomedical sciences; and foster application of basic and clinical science.

Chronic, cancer-related pain affects between 30 and 50 percent of patients undergoing cancer treatment and more than 70 percent of patients with advanced disease. Linda Carlson, Enbridge research chair in psychosocial oncology at the University of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine, is working with digital therapeutics developer Rocket VR Health to study the potential of a virtual reality-guided mindfulness intervention program in adult cancer patients with chronic, cancer-related pain. The thinking is that mindfulness could mitigate chronic cancer-related pain by regulating both physical and emotional resistance to it and that virtual reality could create an immersive environment that could focus patients' attention on present moment experiences making it easier for them to achieve mindfulness achieve more effective results. We spoke to Carlson about the problem of chronic pain in cancer, the case for mindfulness, and why the use of virtual reality might provide better outcomes for patients.

Then, he shares his thoughts on the relatively novel concepts of the “value crisis” and “time toxicity” he sees in cancer care, how to reconcile benefit to individual patients vs patient populations, the translation from efficacy to effectiveness within treatments, ways to temper patient expectations when it comes to hype vs hope for treatments and recovery goals, and a whole lot more.
