Christina Camardese Savage passed away on January 27, 2009 after a courageous ten year battle with cancer. Christinas Garden was created in August of 2009 to honor the memory of Christina, whose strength, courage, humor and love for life inspired so many.
Christina's Garden is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To assist cancer patients and their families on a national level, Christina's Garden has developed a free cancer care website. The website provides cancer patients and their loved ones with information and links to valuable resources, including organizations that provide financial assistance, support services, organizational tools and tips for loved ones to help. There are many resources available to cancer patients. However, these resources are sometimes difficult to find. ManageCancer provides easy access to these resources so that those in need can take full advantage of what is available to them.
Site will soon provide cancer patients and their loved ones with links to resources that are available in the Valley.
Christina's Garden has partnered with another nonprofit organization to bring a cancer wellness center to the Valley. We are so proud to be working with the people of Yellow Brick Place to create a center that will provide free non-medical services to cancer patients and their families. We are currently looking for a location. When open, the center will provide free services such as: a resource library, support groups, meditation, yoga, massage and much more! This facility is so needed in the Valley and we are so excited to be a part of this project! Learn more about our friends at Yellow Brick Place by visiting Site.

Approximately half of all cancer patients from the devastating effects of cancer related muscle loss increasing lean body mass, patients and even and even their response to cancer treatment, said Adrian Dobs one, investigator in the phase II trial of Ostarine and Professor of Medicine and Oncology, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. These phase II results demonstrate the potential of a SARM as unmet need, as there is currently no FDA – approved therapies to available cancer cachexia.
The incidence of serious adverse events, deaths and tumor progression were similar among placebo and the treatment cohorts. The most common side effects were observed in all patients in the study were fatigue, anemia, nausea and diarrhea. Continue reading “The study meets Ostarine the primary endpoint of LBM.”

Prospective Randomized Trial of Laparoscopy vs. Laparotomy for comprehensive surgical staging of uterine cancer study Randomization was 1996. Randomization was designed so that twice as many laparoscopy laparoscopy compared to laparotomy, laparoscopy randomized 696 and 920 to laparotomy. The results of the study show a lower incidence of serious complications and a 50 % reduction in hospital stay for patients completing their procedure laparoscopically..
Uterine cancer is a common malignancy of the female genital tract. In 2005, the American Cancer Society estimated more than 40,000 cases of uterine cancer, and more than 7,000 deaths. The average age at diagnosis is in the early 60s and women who are obese or have diabetes are at greater risk for developing the disease. The risk of dying from cervical cancer is increased by age and Black race. P. Continue reading “Prospective Randomized Trial of Laparoscopy vs.”

To white. A white piece of paper in bright sunlight reflected a thousand times more light on the eye than a white piece of paper inside, but both pieces of paper look white. How which brain the? do. The process of seeing begins an object, if the light is reflected in that the object meets the light-sensitive structures in the eye, the perception of an object brightness hangs the object reflection lighter lighter reflect a larger proportion of light than those that appear darker..
She continues: In addition, even though we are behavioral disorders used as physiological measurements, our results provide insight into the neural mechanisms that need to be based on the of behavioral data.. Generally white objects reflect about 90 % of the light that hits them, and black objects reflect about three %, a ratio of 30 – to-1, she explains.’But if you look at the intensities of the light entering the eye from a typical scene, as a field of lilies, the ratio is much higher, usually somewhere between 10,000 – to-1 and says a million – to-1 ‘Allred.

A response to a Mysterious Movement Disorder in the genome discoveredChildren with a rather mysterious movement disorder can hundreds of attacks each day in which they inexplicably make sudden movements or sudden changes in the speed from their movements. New evidence in an early online publication of in January 2015 first issue of Cell Reports reports provides the first open-access journal of Cell Press, an answer for them.
‘The new findings refute this idea, but ‘it’s all connected,’Ek says. The defects that his team uncovered in PRRT2 probably affect the function of these channels, adds these critical to the delivery of nerve messages. New treatments are not for PCD, Pt needed ek says, noted that the condition can be well controlled with existing medications and often goes away with age for reasons that were as mysterious as its origins once. Still, he adds these new biological insights could lead to drugs for other neurological disorders, such as Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease, which is not so easily treated..
