Welcome to "Dear Cancer," a takeover episode of Out of Patients with special guest hosts Dr. Mark Lewis, an oncologist from Intermountain Medical Center, and Stephanie Elsea, a volunteer patient advocate from The Lustgarten Foundation. Together with Matthew Zachary, Mark and Stephanie break down the latest cancer research medical jargon into human terms, especially with the help of another special guest, Matt's daughter, Hannah. With grace, humor, and passion, the three share personal stories that connect them deeply to this cause. They wish only to help patients strike that balancing act between hope and hope by banishing pessimism and embracing reality about their prognoses. Throughout the episode, the team covers everything from understanding different types of tumors, what biomarkers are (and their importance), and clinical trials can sound less, um.. "clinical." They also discuss the latest findings and some extremely positive results from the Crestone Research Study.See if biomarker testing is right for you, and sign up today at http://dearcancer.health/findout.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

My guest today is Dr. Richard Parker, Chief Medical Officer at Arcadia, an exciting venture focused on using "big data" to ensure the right information about care is delivered to the right patient when needed. What a concept! For the math nerds out there, they harness millions of data points—like your diagnosis, medications, zip code, etc.—to create a sort of flowchart and navigation tool. Rich tells me it's not Skynet, and we are not at the dawn of a robot apocalypse. What's even more interesting is how Rich got started in his career in Chinese linguistics and how that enabled him to his role as Chief Medical Officer for Beth Israel Deaconess in Massachusetts. Oh, and we rifle through the 1980s and compare notes on how dangerous playgrounds used to be.

If you're connected with Multiple Sclerosis in any way - whether you're a patient, or a caregiver, family member, or loved one of somebody with the disease - it's easy (and NATURAL) to live in the what-ifs. We can all wallow in the negatives - hey, there's a reason why this podcast is called FUMS!But Sue Casey, my guest today, tries to live by a different mantra - "Grab The Happy!"Sue has been living with MS for nearly 50 years. This means that when she was first diagnosed, they didn't have MRIs or any of the procedures that we all experience today. And Disease Modifying Therapies? Forget about it! Even though her neurologist told her to never get married or have children, Sue has lived a full and happy life and as her MS has progressed, she has learned to appreciate the small things. And whenever I speak to her she just exudes kindness and love.As you'll hear, Sue has not had it easy, so her positive attitude is hard-won. And, listening to this, you might not be ready to adopt even the smallest part of this mindset. But at some point, you do have a decision to make, and I hope you'll be inspired by Sue's approach to life with MS.Topics covered in this episode include:Sue's life before MS, her initial symptoms, and the story of her diagnosisHow the diagnostic procedure looked in the time before MRIsSue's limited experience of DMTs The progression of Sue's MS, and how she chooses to look for the positives in her lifeFull show notes and resources at https://fumsnow.com/fums115/ See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Lauren R. Kornegay, founder of Endo Black joins us this month. Diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 20, Lauren experienced the pain, struggles, exhaustion, and confusion that accompany the disorder. This led her on a search to find someone that looked like her, who was also dealing with endometriosis.Having previously searched social media, websites, and other avenues, she knew something had to change. Her mother always told her, “If there's a void, fill it, and if you want something done, do it yourself.” Lauren believes in “creating a space where there is no space.”So in October of 2015, Lauren established Endo Black, Inc., a platform designed to connect African American women and women of color affected by endometriosis.Join us today as she talks about her endo story, living a life of service, and her endo story.

Fran Drescher once said, "Stage 1 is the cure." Not any longer. Medical technology and genetics have come so far these days that it's now possible never to get cancer in the first place. At least some cancers that is. No, we're not talking about "prevention" in the traditional sense. My in-studio guest Dr. Lishan Aklog and I talk about "pre-cancer," a condition where cells in your body that are at risk of becoming cancer can now be detected and treated before any actual malignancy begins. How unbelievably insane is that? Lishan is an acclaimed thoracic surgeon and entrepreneur who once fled political violence in Ethiopia as a child and now helms PAVMed, a truly next-gen enterprise bringing to market these miraculous tests that can detect pre-cancer. Deservedly so, Lishan was recently named a Top 50 Healthcare/Technology CEO of 2021 and speaks to such essential issues as empathy in medicine, fighting with the FDA, and boiling down complex medical jargon so the average human can understand it.

I learned a lot from my guest today, and I mean A LOT. For example, I had no idea that humans have something called the "Adaptive Immune System." Nor did I know — although I had my suspicions — why it seems that everyone is allergic to everything these days, yet, growing up in the 70s and 80s, no one was allergic to anything. My guest, Meenal Lele, host of the fantastic podcast "Fixing Sick," received two back-to-back Science degrees from Wharton and UPenn in the same year. That background came in extremely handy when her newborn nearly died from an undiagnosed food allergy. She went into advocacy beast mode, taking on the food allergy ecosystem. The result is years of research, data, and new facts that blew my mind and will hopefully blow yours. Did you know that no one is born with food allergies? And that, through shitty US-only ingredients in our food and the hyper-sanitization and "Over-Purell-ification" of society, we've completely eroded our natural immunity to ordinary things that our species has historically never had to worry about for thousands of years? Necessity is the mother of invention, and Meenal's ingenuity has resulted in her founding Lil Mixins, purveyors of solutions to help stop food allergies in infants before they start. Yes, you heard right. Enjoy the show.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Original Air Date 1/1/2022 — I had the absolute privilege of welcoming the late Kasey Altman to OffScrip Health Studios in NYC earlier this year for an interview on my show. While it's nearly impossible to put into words all that she was, is, and will forever be, Kasey is the rare exception to the metaphoric rule of having to "pick your favorite kid". Her charm, charisma, and creative intellect alone would have been enough to put her on a Mount Rushmore of cancer advocates, but her no-BS precociousness that led this Google exec to launch a hackathon to help develop a cure for her type of cancer (fusion-positive alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma) blew the doors off any perception of what I thought advocacy meant. Kasey lit up every room brighter than possible with her very being, and her podcast, The Reroute, was appointment listening for me and for thousands of listeners around the world. After road-tripping across the U.S. and enrolling in different clinical trials for months, tragic inevitability caught up with her. Kasey was wise beyond her years with an infectious laugh and lust for life way beyond anything a cat poster has to offer. She will be missed but her footprint will live on in us.
