Reminder for all my friends out there who are currently experiencing the #SundayScaries about having to do #chemo this week. I like to post this every few months. It is one of the few pictures of text that I love. #motivation #colorectalcancer reposting from @jaimepsullivan

A study led by American Cancer Society researchers finds that new cases of colon cancer and rectal cancer are occurring at an increasing rate among young and middle-aged adults in the US. Once age is taken into account, those born in 1990 have double the risk of colon cancer and quadruple the risk of rectal cancer compared to people born around 1950, when risk was lowest. Because of growing evidence that colorectal cancer is increasing in people younger than age 55, the authors propose that screening be considered before age 50.
Given these findings, the new 2018 screening guideline of the American Cancer Society recommends that people at average risk of colorectal cancer start regular screening at age 45, instead of starting at age 50. This can be done either with a test that looks for signs of cancer in a person’s stool, or with a visual exam of the inside of the colon and rectum (colonoscopy). #miamicancerdoc #drllaguna #cancerkiller #surgicaloncology #miamisurgeon #cancer #fightcancer #beatcancer #curecancer #cancerawareness #cancersurvivor #medicalschool #medstudent #doctor #surgery #generalsurgery #surgeon #surgeonlife #oncall #oncalllife #operatingroom #miami #southflorida #305 #health #wellness #roboticsurgery #coloncancer #rectalcancer #colorectalcancer

Sex and colorectal cancer are two things we just don’t like to talk about.... so today we did both! You’ve got a team of doctors working to help you manage your illness, but what happens when you’re ready to move in the quality-of-life space of your cancer journey?

The Kids’ Closet at Cook Children’s Medical Center has a shortage of teen and adult clothing. All donations must be brand new because many patients have illnesses that make them more susceptible to germs.
.
.
The following items are the most needed to support our teen and family needs: Sizes S-XXL, Pajama bottoms or athletic pants/shorts, Non-graphic T-Shirts
.
.
Through the kind hearts of our community, The Kids’ Closet provides assistance to families during emergency situations. Often times, families cannot anticipate or meet the needs during an extended stay at the medical center. Donations are provided to maintain cleanliness, privacy and normalcy. They also allow patients to participate in programs that are necessary for becoming well: physically, emotionally and developmentally.
.
.
Donated items may be dropped off at the information desk at our medical center Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday- Sunday from 8 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or mailed to:

Cool example of image guided surgery. Seen here is a dual image of actual intra-operative video with simultaneous ultrasound imaging. We’re in the process of looking for a liver lesion in preparation for a robotic assisted liver resection. #miamicancerdoc #drllaguna #cancerkiller #surgicaloncology #miamisurgeon #cancer #fightcancer #beatcancer #curecancer #cancerawareness #cancersurvivor #medicalschool #medstudent #doctor #surgery #generalsurgery #surgeon #surgeonlife #oncall #oncalllife #operatingroom #miami #southflorida #305 #health #wellness #roboticsurgery #coloncancer #rectalcancer #colorectalcancer

We are so proud of our grassroots advocacy manager @julienne_edwards on your 2018 Advocacy Award! by @getrepost @fightcrc Thanks for your posts

Loving my new Hope vs Cancer shirt. While most children’s cancer programs, organizations, and charities either raise donations for research or lift children’s spirits while undergoing treatment, Hope vs Cancer operates with dual functionality, both lifting spirits and raising donations for research at the same time. The 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit foundation uses traditional tattoo artwork as a medium for achieving both results. Check them out @hopevscancer

I’m excited to announce that I have been chosen to become a Fight Colorectal Cancer Ambassador. Fight Colorectal Cancer is an organization that finds it unacceptable that the #2 cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. comes from a preventable disease. The organization focuses on advocacy and research. They train people on how to get involved. They fund grants to scientists working to cure colorectal cancer, and put experts in the same room to talk about how to move things forward. My father passed away from rectal cancer, a sad chapter in my families life that I believe could have been prevented through patient education and awareness. I’m hopeful that my work with the organization will help prevent the loss of someone’s loved one and help lead the way to a cure

Thank you to my FAVORITE member of Congress, colorectal survivor Representative Raskin for co-sponsoring HR 2976, the Deferment for Active Treatment Act, which allows patients in active cancer treatment to defer student loans. @repraskin @heycriticalmass #YACAD18 #colontown

Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland took some time today to chat with us about some of the issues young adults with cancer face, such as the inability to defer student loans during treatment. @heycriticalmass #YACAD18

Learning from Lisa Simms Booth of the Biden Cancer Initiative about how patient stories can spark policy changes to improve the lives of young adults with cancer. @bidencancer @heycriticalmass @colontown #yacad2018

Heading to the capital today to lobby our (actually yours...I don’t have one) Congresswomen and men. Am I making it clear what I want to talk about? #yacad18 @heycriticalmass
