End of Life: Time or Quality?
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 31st January, 2016

The evening before the blizzard, my husband and I drove after work to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to see a friend who has been hospitalized for a week for her cancer treatment. She was diagnosed with both thyroid and esophageal cancer six months ago. She underwent chemotherapy and radiation. The tumors have made it nearly impossible for her to swallow solid food. ...

Are You Surviving the First Blizzard of 2016? A Balance of Shoveling and Making Soup
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Saturday, 23rd January, 2016

I am fortunately in the comfort of my breakfast room looking out to the beautiful heavy snow.

IT'S TOO LATE TO REGRET NOW, DOOM DAYS ARE HERE! THE HUMAN RACE MIGHT VANISH BY MONDAY ...

Has CLL defined me?
written by Carol Preston
on Thursday, 21st January, 2016

Editor's Note: Although Carol is writing about leukemia, those with other cancers in remission can relate to her thought process.

A New Year's Norovirus "Cleanse"
written by Serrin Gantt, M.D.
on Tuesday, 12th January, 2016

Thursday I tended to my mother who had what I presumed was norovirus. In the middle of the night she had developed diarrhea and later the next day vomiting. She had a low grade temperature of 100F and very little energy. I kept a safe distance but did empty her vomit pot (AKA emesis basin). CDC guidelines were followed in that I washed my hands very thoroughly before leaving ...

written by Jody Miller, M.A., RCEP
on Wednesday, 6th January, 2016

I usually write to you about exercise routines but this article shares my journey and experience with breast cancer. I am ten days out from my breast reconstruction surgery. All went very well, and marks the long and challenging six months since my initial diagnosis with breast cancer.

My New Year Resolution? I Need to Meditate!
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 3rd January, 2016

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday time you spent with your families. On New Year's Day, my husband David, a neighbor and I went for a walk to North Beach, half a mile from our house in Chesapeake Beach. We walked past the registration desk for the Polar Bear Plunge to take place at 1PM. The $25 registration fee would get you a long sleeve T shirt showing that you participated ...
