This is the first episode in a multi-part series highlighting one of the groups that started it all, Team in Training. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is a global leader in the fight against cancer.The LLS funds blood cancer research that has helped significantly increased survival rates worldwide. Since 1949, the organization has invested over $1.5 billion in cancer drug and treatment research. Some of the therapies that have come from that research have extended into diseases other than cancer, effectively treating so much more.In 1988, a man named Bruce Cleland organized a group of people to run the New York Marathon while gaining pledges toward cancer research. His toddler daughter had just successfully finished treatment, and he wanted to do something to make a difference. That “team” in marathon “training” raised more than $300,000 that year, but the effects lasted much longer.Today, over 650,000 people have gone through the Team in Training program to date. Fundraising participants have brought in over $1 billion dollars. That amount has gone to research amongst other things. Cancer patients have benefitted from $431 million in co-pay financial assistance, and currently, there are over 200 research grants across the globe.All of this is because of individual people working toward something bigger than themselves.In this episode, hear not only personal stories, but fundraising and coaching strategies, advocacy work done at the state government level, research advances, and how a bunch of strangers become one big purple family.In This Episode:Stephanie Carlson, VP of Athletic Initiatives for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (and ultramarathon runner)Dr. Jen Reichek, Pediatric Oncologist at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago (and multi-year Boston Qualifier & Finisher)Coach Mark Gregory, Team In Training Area CoachDavid Mutnick, Chair of the Board of Trustees for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society IllinoisScott Saxe, State Advocacy Leader for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society IllinoisMarty Hogan, Team In Training Marathon Finisher This is a public episode.

Being a parent is challenging, but managing your own business is even more challenging. Overcome the challenge as Dr. David Phelps outlines essential lessons working parents should remember to pass on to their children, the role of your spouse in decision-making, and how to preserve financial stability following a professional shift. Continue listening to learn the secret to balancing a successful home and work life.   Key takeaways to listen for The challenges faced by entrepreneur parents How adversity shapes parental decisions for their children What you can do to keep your family and finances stable despite career shifts Key values a good community must possess The major role your spouse plays in decision-making The best thing entrepreneur parents can pass on to their kids   About Dr. David Phelps David owned and managed a private practice dental office for over twenty-one years. While still in dental school, he began his investment in real estate by joint-venturing with his father on their first rental property in 1980. Three years later, they sold the property, and David took his $25,000 capital gain share and leveraged it into thirty-one properties that later produced $15,000 monthly net cash flow. Life was good, the sky was the limit - until the dark day that David's daughter, Jenna, was diagnosed with Leukemia. In the midst of cancer treatments, epilepsy and ultimately a liver transplant for Jenna, David made the crucial decision to leave clinical practice so that he could spend every moment with his daughter. David's “Plan B” (a portfolio of cash-now producing real estate assets) gave him the freedom to focus 100% on what mattered most. Jenna won the battle with the disease, and David still enjoys the Freedom to cherish every moment with her that he can. Today, David is a nationally recognized speaker on creating Freedom, building real businesses, and investing in real estate. David helps other logical, rational professionals become dreamers, then strategically manifest those dreams into Freedom. Under David's leadership, the Freedom Founders Mastermind Community grows exponentially, year by year, providing the pathway to Freedom for many professional practice owners.   Connect with Dr. David Website: Freedom Founders | Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast: Dentist Freedom Blueprint | Apple and Spotify   Connect with Us To learn more about us, visit our website at www.18summers.com or email us at info@18summers.com.

Subsequent bloodwork showed very highwhite blood cell counts and he was told to go to the emergency room at Brighamand Women's as they were confident it was Leukemia. This took place at the heightof the pandemic, which meant he could not have any visitors with him, making it avery solitary experience. Upon being admitted to the emergency room, he wasintroduced to Dr. Richard Stone and Ilene Galinsky who were able to shed light on adark situation. In a world where the word "hero" seems to be thrown around a little too easily, they are true heroes. The nurses on the seventh floor were also absoluteangels and treated him like extended family made the situation a bit easier.● His treatment consisted of induction chemotherapy and a research drug calledCrenolanib that targets the mutation that he had. The treatments were successful ingetting him into full remission.

It can sometimes spread to other parts of the body includingthe lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), andtesticles.● Most often, AML develops from cells that would turn into white blood cells (otherthan lymphocytes), but sometimes AML develops in other types of blood-formingcells. The different types of AML are discussed in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)Subtypes and Prognostic Factors. ● Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has many other names, including acute myelocyticleukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia, and acutenon-lymphocytic leukemia.

Subsequent bloodwork showed very highwhite blood cell counts and he was told to go to the emergency room at Brighamand Women's as they were confident it was Leukemia. This took place at the heightof the pandemic, which meant he could not have any visitors with him, making it avery solitary experience. Upon being admitted to the emergency room, he wasintroduced to Dr. Richard Stone and Ilene Galinsky who were able to shed light on adark situation. In a world where the word "hero" seems to be thrown around a little too easily, they are true heroes. The nurses on the seventh floor were also absoluteangels and treated him like extended family made the situation a bit easier.● His treatment consisted of induction chemotherapy and a research drug calledCrenolanib that targets the mutation that he had. The treatments were successful ingetting him into full remission. Due to his mutation, Daniel also underwent a stemcell transplant, for which his sister was a perfect match, to try to achieve a lastingcure. He is doing very well and is still in remission so far, up for immunizations 24months post-transplant.● Daniel loves to work on and restore cars and motorized equipment as well ascamping and helping people.● He is a regional maintenance director for Healthtrax Fitness & Wellness● Daniel, born and raised in New England, is proud of Boston's Dana-Farber. He feelsthe next-level care you get when walking into Dana-Farber is unmatched by anyother hospital he has ever been in. He also feels Brigham is another of the greatesthospitals around, as they saved his mom's life with a quadruple bypass. Acute myeloblastic leukemia facts● AML is one of the most common types of leukemia in adults. Still, AML is fairly rareoverall, accounting for only about 1% of all cancers.● American Cancer Society predicts there will be about 20,050 new cases of AML in2022.● Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) starts in the bone marrow (the soft inner part ofcertain bones, where new blood cells are made), but most often it quickly movesinto the blood, as well. It can sometimes spread to other parts of the body includingthe lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), andtesticles.● Most often, AML develops from cells that would turn into white blood cells (otherthan lymphocytes), but sometimes AML develops in other types of blood-formingcells. The different types of AML are discussed in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)Subtypes and Prognostic Factors. ● Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has many other names, including acute myelocyticleukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia, and acutenon-lymphocytic leukemia. ● Dr. Stone received his MD in 1981 from Harvard Medical School, his internalmedicine residency training at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and hishematology-oncology fellowship at Dana-Farber.● He has performed numerous laboratory and clinical studies on acute leukemia andrelated disorders, and frequently participates in grand rounds worldwide sharing hisknowledge with other professionals.

Today's guest on Feminine Roadmap was given sixty days to live in 2012. Dr. Erica Harris was given a devastating diagnosis of a rare form of leukemia at just 35 years old. In this episode she walks us through her story and how it taught her to prepare for the worst and expect the best. Erica learned to slow down, soak in the value of this moment. Her leukemia diagnosis lead to a bone marrow transplant which then ended up causing her body to reject her own lungs. Erica miraculously received a double lung transplant as a result. Her story is one of resilience and tenacity, grief and surrender then a renewed sense of gratitude and joy. Her story is inspiring, empowering and revelatory. Her mission is to encourage others to rise up, live each day we've been given to the fullest, and find appreciation in every moment. I encourage you to grab a cuppa something wonderful, sit with a friend and enjoy listening to one woman's story of triumph.

Researchers have discovered potential new drugs that work in concert with other drugs to deliver a deadly one-two punch to leukemia.Researchers from Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered potential new drugs that work in concert with other drugs to deliver a deadly one-two punch to leukemia. The potential drugs are still years away from being tested in cancer patients, but a recently published study in the journal Leukemia highlights their promise and the innovative methods that led to their discovery.In previous studies, the research groups of Rice biochemist Natasha Kirienko and MD Anderson physician-scientist Marina Konopleva screened some 45,000 small-molecule compounds to find a few that targeted mitochondria. In the new study, they chose eight of the most promising compounds, identified between five and 30 closely related analogs for each, and conducted tens of thousands of tests to systematically determine how toxic each analog was to leukemia cells, both when administered individually or in combination with existing chemotherapy drugs like doxorubicin.During times of extreme stress, cells can temporarily forgo mitophagy to get an emergency energy boost. Cancer is notorious for hijacking these sorts of programs to fuel pathological growth. For example, previous research has shown leukemia cells have far more damaged mitochondria than healthy cells and are also more sensitive to mitochondrial damage than healthy cells.Natasha joins us today to discuss her findings.

The Mentors are Law Enforcement professionals in a variety of areas of specialization and will stay connected to the scholarship recipients throughout their academic tenure.     During Jaxon's battle with Leukemia, Jessica was his primary caregiver.  They spent every day together. During that time she learned many skills and protocols that his nurses performed at the hospital.  This allowed her to be Jaxon's primary caregiver rather than him staying in the hospital or having a home nurse come to the house. Jessica is a happy person and finds joy in sharing kindness and helping others.  She looks forward to seeing the benefits that the Jaxon Foundation will bring to the lives of individuals and the community.  https://jaxonfoundation.org/   https://bethematch.org/   Brandon Ynclan is currently a Police Detective with the Chandler Police Department.

Brandon was then assigned to the department's Vehicular Crimes Unit as a Detective where he specialized in investigating cases of vehicular homicide. Brandon is currently assigned to the department's Criminal Intelligence Unit where he is the department's liaison to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Prior to his work in law enforcement, Brandon served in the United States Army. In 2005 Brandon deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Prior to his Iraq deployment Brandon was stationed in South Korea near the North Korean border.  Brandon has been married to wife Cassandra for nine years, and together they have an amazing daughter named Adriana.  Brandon first met Jaxon in 2019, a few months before his passing. Brandon was blown away at Jaxon's incredible outlook on life, and his overwhelming willingness to help people.
