After being diagnosed with leukemia, this nine-year-old New Jersey girl’s classmates organized a rally to support her. The phrase, “Fight like a girl” has never been so powerful.

The ceremony ended with Paige's classmates and officials from the fire department raising and orange flag that read "No one fights alone; Fight like a girl," with Paige's named displayed largely through the center of it.

Researchers have found that increasing fiber intake and adopting a less American-style diet can decrease the risk of cancer, specifically colon cancer. Participants in a study ate either a South African- or American-style for two weeks, and had vastly different results at the end. Around 50 grams of fiber a day is recommended for the best protection.

The gut bacteria of people who switched diets for two weeks shifted—and so did their risk for cancer.

Just like specific targeted cancer therapies, researchers are investigating cancer-specific pain relief. Certain parts of cancer cells can be correlated to the amount of pain patients report, which may allow scientists to develop drugs that address certain kinds of pain from certain types of cancer.

What happens when the cared for becomes the caregiver? This cancer patient found great joy in helping her husband after an accident. She was finally able to give back to the man who helped her through so many tough times.

A supreme privilege: to care for this resolute man who cared for me.

With positive thinking and good luck, this young woman beat brain cancer. Despite several surgeries to remove a tumor and a long recovery, she stays upbeat and inspires others to remain positive about their situtation.
