Our little Mav!

Our little Mav!

Imagine, a 4 year old little boy who’s eyes light up at the sight of a fire truck.

A handsome little fella with green floating on each arm and across his chest, as he fearlessly takes to the swimming pool on a warm spring day.

A little guy who has a mothers love so deep she’d do anything to protect him and save his life. This particular little man laughs a lot. He smiles wide. And he happens to be fighting for his life.

Sans the hair missing from the top of his head, you wouldn’t guess that little Maverick is on his journey fighting Leukemia at UT MD Anderson.

That’s why Friday Beacon Donors make such a huge difference in our mission of Healing Cancer One Night At A Time.

We were connected to Maverick and his mother through our friends at the Houston Fire Department. As the Lubbock family awaited space at the Ronald McDonald House, Friday Harbour rushed in to help by providing much needed nights of stay at a local Marriott Hotel.

Let’s all join in and cheer the Mavericks of to,or row on as they laugh, smile and fight for their lives!

Cancer incidence to double in young patients by 2030?

According to a February 2015 article in HemOnc today magazine, the Colorectal cancer incidence in young patients is expected to double by 2030.

Reserearcher, George J. Chang, MD, MS (UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center), describes this as an important moment in cancer prevention. The article reports that while the overall incidence of coloretal cancer has declined in the US, the rate of diagnoses among young adults has increased significantly. This is a result of a “SEER” analysis.

This message comes with warnings of the potential for overreaction. Kiran K. Turaga, MD MPH suggests that despite the increased incidence in younger adults, health care professionals should be cautious about dramatically increasing colorectal cancer screening in this population. Particularly for the fear that increased screening ;might add significant cost and risks withouth societal benefit.

All in all, these arguments could stimulate opportunities for development of better risk-predition tools that might help identify early risk candidates.

At Friday Harbour, as we deliver on our mission to ease the burden of the cancer journey, we continue to educate ourselves on the research, recommendations and remarks made by those closest to the treatments and cures in the medical professions. Those getting treatment today, could uncover preventions for tomorrow.

Young or old, future preventions and patients are in good hands.
