John's Story: #KidneyCancer:

In the fall of 2007, John Roley went to his local emergency room complaining of severe stomach pain. He figured the pain was caused by a stomach virus. The doctors performed several tests, including a CAT Scan, which showed something suspicious on both kidneys.

Cancer close up’: Images of Shimmering Cells Offer Clues to Understanding:

Edna "ETI" Cukierman, PhD, Fox Chase Cancer Center's laboratory images were recently featured in an NCI exhibit. Eti is slide number 2.

At first glance, they look like the most exquisite Murano glass, their ruby reds and royal blues shimmering as if lit by a Venetian sunrise. But these are human cancer cells, lung and breast and prostate and cervical and more. The images released this week by the National Cancer Institute as part of its “Cancer Close Up” project show the genesis of cancer cells and their migration through the body, the blood vessels they sprout to stay alive, and the molecular “skeletons” that help them spread.

1 in 12 Chance of Second Cancer in Many Survivors:

In the United States, more than 8% of adults diagnosed with the most common cancers develop a second malignancy (of any type, including rare cancers), according to an analysis of US data from the last two decades.

"I am not surprised by the percentage of second cancers among survivors for a number of reasons," said Eric Horowitz, MD, a radiation oncologist at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who was not involved in the study.
"Our primary treatments have gotten so much better, and we have more survivors living for longer periods of time," he told Medscape Medical News.

Dr Horwitz reminded clinicians to "still do other cancer screenings" in cancer survivors. "Lung cancer patients still need a colorectal cancer screening," he said. Read more: http://ow.ly/ISYn302uVwm

Mary's Story: #Sarcoma:

At each of the 13 races she's run since 2010, Mary Marczely always races to cross the finish line. The contest that meant the most to her was the race against the cancer she was diagnosed with in August 2010.

Mary, a busy mother of two sons, who were age two and four at the time of her diagnosis, started experiencing an odd tingling sensation in her left calf and foot. The discomfort grew into pain and numbness.
