Google Glass doesn't have anything on the latest in high-tech cancer treatment from Washington University School of Medicine. The St. Louis, Missouri-based university and medical center has pioneered a new type of glasses that help surgeons tell the difference between cancerous cells and healthy cells during a procedure.
While the glasses are in the early stages of development -- so new the technology is unnamed -- they were used for the first time in surgery on February 10, 2014, at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. The hospital consistently ranks in the top 10 for U.S. News & World Report's "Best Hospital in America" and is one of the largest cancer treatment centers in the country.
The glasses are composed of a head-mounted display and proprietary video technology. During a surgery, a surgeon applies a chemical to the tissues that is specifically attracted to cancerous cells to last through longer surgeries, but does not attach to healthy cells. When a surgeon wears the glasses,

You might know Coenzyme Q10 as an ingredient in your favorite anti-aging lotions and potions, but did you know it’s also being used as a homeopathic cancer cure? Read on to find out what gives CoQ10 its anti-cancer reputation among naturopaths. CoQ10 (Ubiquinone) is a naturally produced substance similar to Vitamin E that has significant anti-oxidant properties. Of the 10 most common Coenzyme Q’s, CoQ10 is the only Coenzyme Q present in human cellular tissue. Due to the natural effects of aging, CoQ10 levels significantly decrease with maturity. For example, at 40 years of age, we have only 64% of the CoQ10 originally present at age 20. By age 80, this figure drops by half to 36% of the CoQ10 we had at 20 years of age. CoQ10, being a cellular component (Quinone), is a cyclic compound present in all human cells.

Consuming cooked or processed foods destroy CoQ10, including the very substrates employed to manufacture and replace CoQ10 stores. In its active form, pure CoQ10 is bright yellow. Though once it is subjected to light or 115 degrees Fahrenheit, it will unfortunately

The cover of the book "Nowhere Hair" shows a mom, little girl and dog playing on the beach. But there's something a little different about this mom: she doesn't have hair. This is the premise of "Nowhere Hair," a book written by Sue Glader to help parents explain cancer and chemotherapy treatments to children.

The book's narrator is a little girl whose mom is missing her hair. The little girl goes looking for her mother's hair all throughout her home. Her mother explains to her daughter that medicine made it fall out, and that it was nothing the little girl did to make that happen. Written in rhyme, the book covers many sensitive topics, such as cancer, wearing hats and scarves to cover a head and that some people look different, which is okay.

The organization selected the book for children ages 3 to 12 to help kids understand a parent's diagnosis. The Moonbeam Children's Book Awards also selected the book as its 2011 Gold Medal Winner in the "Health" category.

Author Sue Glader is a breast cancer survivor who lives in Marin County, California. She Life can change on a dime. It's what you do after you pick up the pieces that counts.

This interview was taped in April 2013, prior to the "Fashion For Jandie" benefiting event.

Jandie's story is long and heart breaking about her battle with stage four Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma; But to summarize it- in the beginning, she was rejected by doctors when complaining about her excruciating leg pain, being accused of only wanting pain killers. They eventually sent her to physical therapy creating pressure and strain, thus causing her leg to break, all the while not knowing she had bone cancer. Since the doctors pushed her away instead of trying to figure out the issue, her cancer then spread to her lungs until it was finally found.

On February 9th, 2015, she found out the cancer was now in her brain, as well. February 11th she had emergency brain surgery and they were only able to remove 80% of the tumor, as the remaining 20% was up against a blood vessel that affects her motor skills.

Jandie has also had tremendous stress with her finances in supporting her battle against cancer. Her medical bills are deep in collections, and every month she has
