@Team SuperMarrow Race Across America 2019— Bringing Awareness. 🏹  Saving Lives!  teamsupermarrow.org  Working Relentlessly on Behalf of Blood Cancer Patients & Others in Need of a Stem Cell Transplant  Please register to be a stem cell/bone marrow donor today at Join.bethematch.org/raam.  How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Source: https://m.wikihow.com/Treat-Sickle-Cell-Anemia  Sickle cell anemia is an inherited condition that causes deformed red blood cells, which reduces their ability to carry oxygen to cells.[1] The sickle or crescent-shaped red blood cells also get stuck in small blood vessels, which slows or blocks blood flow and causes severe pain. With the exception of a bone marrow transplant, sickle cell anemia can't be cured, although there are some treatments that can control symptoms and reduce painful crises.  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  1. Administer antibiotics, especially to young children. Sickle cell anemia is inherited, so it's present at birth and can be life-threatening to babies and young children due to hyposplenism (reduced spleen function), which increases their risk of getting serious infections. Antibiotics, usually penicillin, are commonly given to infants and young children (but also adults in some cases), to help prevent bacterial infections.[2] Infants with sickle cell anemia can begin taking antibiotics at about 2 months old and often continue for the first 5 years of life. Infants need to take liquid penicillin, whereas older children and adults can take the pills — usually twice daily. The most common life-threatening infection related to sickle cell anemia is bacterial pneumonia.[3]  #cancer #cycling #oncology #stemcells #donors #leukemia #chemotherapy #lymphoma #ethnicity #hematology #bonemarrow #awareness #stemcelltransplant #ethnicmedia #teamsupermarrow #bethematch #aplasticanemia #bonemarrowtransplant #sicklecellanemia  #multiplemyeloma #hodgkinlymphoma #sicklecellanemia

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  2. Take pain-relieving medications. In addition to often feeling tired and fatigued from lack of oxygen in your bloodstream, episodes of severe pain are commonly experienced by people with sickle cell anemia.[4] To manage these periodic episodes of pain, often called sickle cell crises, take over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) for a day or so until the crisis resolves itself. The painful episodes can last for a few hours or even a few weeks at a time.  Moderate-to-severe pain occurs when the sickle-shaped red blood cells reduce or block bloodflow within the smaller blood vessels in the chest, abdomen and limbs.  The pain tends to be felt more in the joints and bones — in other words, it's typically a deeper pain a than superficial one.  For especially severe episodes that last for more than a few days, your doctor might prescribe a stronger medication, such as opiate drugs.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  3. Apply heating pads to achy body parts during pain crises. Applying heating pads or moist herbal bags to your body during painful sickle cell episodes might help as the heat tends to open up (dilate) blood vessels and allow the sickle-shaped red blood cells to pass through.[5] Moist heat is a better choice over electric heating pads because it tends not to dry out your skin. Use microwavable bags filled with some type of grain (bulgur wheat or rice), herbs and essential oils.  Heat the herbal bag in your microwave for about two minutes or so and apply it to your achy joints, bones or abdomen for at least 15 minutes, three to five times daily.  Adding lavender or other soothing essential oils to your herbal bag can help reduce the discomfort and anxiety caused by your sickle cell crisis.  Taking a bath is another good source of moist heat. Add 2 cups of Epsom salt to the hot water for best results — the magnesium in the salt can further soothe your achy body.  Ice and cold compresses should be avoided as they may cause sickling.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Source: https://m.wikihow.com/Treat-Sickle-Cell-Anemia  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  4. Supplement with folic acid. Red blood cells are made within the bone marrow of your long bones and require certain nutrients to be produced regularly. One of the most important nutrients for making and replacing red blood cells is folate (vitamin B9), which is also called folic acid when in supplement form.[6] As such, if you have sickle cell anemia, take folic acid supplements daily and/or regularly eat foods rich in folate.  Vitamins B6 and B12 are also important for healthy red blood cell production and possibly triggering anti-sickling behavior.  Good sources of these B vitamins include: meats, oily or fatty fish, poultry, most whole grains, fortified cereals, soybeans, avocados, baked potatoes (with skins), watermelon, bananas, peanuts and brewer's yeast.[7]  Recommended daily dosages of folic acid range from 400 to 1,000 mcg (micrograms). Multi-vitamins (without iron) may also be recommended.  #cancer #cycling #oncology #stemcells #donors #leukemia #chemotherapy #lymphoma #ethnicity #hematology #bonemarrow #awareness #stemcelltransplant #ethnicmedia #teamsupermarrow #bethematch #aplasticanemia #bonemarrowtransplant #sicklecellanemia  #multiplemyeloma #hodgkinlymphoma #sicklecellanemia #physicians #health #beatcancer #childhoodcancer

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  5. Use hydroxyurea medication. When taken regularly, hydroxyurea (Droxia, Hydrea) is a drug that helps to decrease painful sickle cell anemia crises and it may also reduce the need for blood transfusions in some moderate-to-severe cases.[8] Hydroxyurea likely stimulates the production of fetal hemoglobin in children and adults, which helps to prevent the formation of sickle-shaped red blood cells.  Hydroxyurea is the only drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent pain episodes in sickle cell disease.  Fetal hemoglobin naturally occurs in newborns, but they quickly lose the ability to produce it within a few weeks or months.  Hydroxyurea was first used only for adults with severe sickle cell anemia, but now more doctors are giving it to children with good results.[9]  Be cautious of potential side effects, which include a greater risk of infection and a possible link to leukemia (cancer of the blood). Ask your doctor if you or your child is a good candidate for hydroxyurea.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  6. Receive routine evaluations and screenings. If you have sickle cell anemia, there are a number of evaluations and screenings that are important in treating the condition and minimizing complications.[10]  Get a dilated eye examination, beginning at age 10, to check for sickle retinopathy. If test results are normal, get re-screened every one to two years. If results are abnormal, follow up with a retinal specialist.  Get tested for renal disease starting at age 10. If the result is negative tests should be done once yearly. If the result is positive, a follow-up test must be performed.  Regularly monitor blood pressure. Even slight increases in blood pressure can increase the risk of stroke in patients with sickle cell disease.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  7. Fight fatigue with oxygen therapy. Without enough oxygen in your bloodstream, your body feels tired, without energy and chronically fatigued — sometimes making it a chore to get out of bed in the morning. Supplemental oxygen, via a mask attached to a pressurized bottle of oxygen, can help you through a crisis or even day-to-day living, much like patients with severe emphysema do.[11] Ask your doctor about the pros and cons of using supplemental oxygen for sickle cell anemia.  Breathing in supplemental oxygen won't force the sickle-shaped red blood cells to carry it, but it can saturate other healthy red blood cells and maximize what gets delivered to other tissues in your body. Supplemental oxygen typically has a higher oxygen content than normal air at sea level. If you travel to higher elevations, carrying supplemental oxygen may avoid a sickle cell crisis until your body can adapt to the new conditions.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  8. Talk to your doctor about a blood transfusion. Another type of treatment that deals more directly with replacing sickle cells with healthy cells is a blood transfusion. Blood transfusions introduce a high number normal red blood cells into circulation, which helps to relieve the symptoms created by the sickle cells.[12] Healthy red blood cells live longer than sickle cells in the bloodstream, up to 120 days. In comparison, sickle cells tend to live no longer than 20 days.  In children and adults with severe sickle cell anemia and at high risk of stroke from blocked arteries, regular blood transfusions can reduce their risk significantly.  Regular blood transfusions have their own risks. They can increase the likelihood of infections and cause too much iron to build up in the body, which can damage internal organs such as the heart and liver.[13]  If you have sickle cell anemia and undergo regular red blood cell transfusions, ask your doctor about deferasirox (Exjade) — a medication that reduces excess iron levels in the body.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  9. Ask your doctor about experimental nitric oxide therapy. People with sickle cell anemia have low levels of nitric oxide in their bloodstream, which normally keeps blood vessels dilated (opened up) and reduces the "stickiness" of red blood cells.[14] Ask your doctor about getting treated with nitric oxide because it may prevent sickle-shaped cells from clumping together and clogging smaller arteries — studies have had mixed results on effectiveness.  Treatment involves inhaling nitric oxide gas, although it's difficult to administer and your doctor may not feel comfortable with the procedure. A supplement that may increase blood levels of nitric oxide is called arginine, an amino acid. Arginine is safe to supplement with and has no known side effects.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part One of Two: Treating Sickle Cell Anemia  10. Consider a bone marrow transplant. A bone marrow transplant (or stem cell transplant) involves replacing the affected bone marrow with healthy marrow from an appropriately matched donor.[15] It's a lengthy and risky hospital procedure that involves destroying all the bone marrow in the anemic person with radiation or chemotherapy, then injecting them with stem cells from a donor. It is the only available curative option for sickle cell disease. Ask your doctor about the pros and cons and if you're a candidate for it.  Not every person with sickle cell anemia is a candidate for a bone marrow transplant and matching donors can be difficult to find. Only about 10% of children with sickle cell anemia have matched donors with healthy stem cells in their families.[16]  Risks of a bone marrow transplant are numerous and include life-threatening infections due to a destroyed immune system.  Because of the risks, transplantation is typically recommended only for people who have severe and chronic symptoms related to sickle cell anemia.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part Two of Two: Preventing a Sickle Cell Crisis  1. Focus on infection prevention. This is of great importance in patients with sickle cell anemia. They are highly susceptible to viral and bacterial infections due to the loss of spleen function that often occurs in early childhood; therefore, in addition to prophylactic antibiotics in childhood, immunization against some diseases are also key. These include the standard childhood vaccinations, as well as immunizations against influenza, bacterial meningitis and certain types of pneumonia.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part Two of Two: Preventing a Sickle Cell Crisis  2. Avoid high altitudes if your body isn't used to it. There is less oxygen at higher altitudes, which can quickly trigger a sickle cell crisis if your body isn't used to such conditions. As such, be cautious if traveling to high-altitude areas (mountainous regions) and consider using supplemental oxygen if you do go.  Consult with your doctor before any trips to high-altitude areas and balance the benefits against the health risks.  Only fly on airplanes with pressurized cabins (which includes all commercial flights on larger planes) and avoid flying in smaller, unpressurized aircrafts at high altitudes.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part Two of Two: Preventing a Sickle Cell Crisis  3. Keep well-hydrated. It's important to keep your blood volume up, especially if you have sickle cell anemia. Low blood volume (common with dehydration) makes the blood thicker and more likely to stick or clump together and can trigger a sickle cell crisis.[17] Prevent dehydration by drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses (about 2 liters) of purified water per day.  Avoid drinking liquids with caffeine, which acts as a diuretic (makes you urinate more frequently) and can reduce blood volume.  Caffeine is found in coffee, black tea, chocolate, most soda pop, and virtually all energy drinks. Increase the amount of fluids you drink per day if you exercise a fair bit or spend time in a hotter climate.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part Two of Two: Preventing a Sickle Cell Crisis  4. Don't get too hot or too cold. Another possible trigger for a sickle cell crisis is temperature extremes — either getting too hot or too cold.[18] Getting too hot increases sweating and can lead to dehydration and low blood volume. Getting too cold causes blood vessels to constrict (get smaller), which hampers blood circulation.  Stick to places and vehicles with air conditioning if you find yourself in a hot and/or humid environment. Wear clothes made of natural fibers (cotton) that can breath.  Keep yourself warm in cold climates by wearing layers of insulated clothing, such as wool. Keeping your hands warm by wearing gloves is especially important for people with sickle cell anemia.

How to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia Co-authored by Tawana Smith, MD  Part Two of Two: Preventing a Sickle Cell Crisis  5. Avoid excessive exercise. Heavy-duty physical demands on your body increase its need for oxygen, which can trigger a sickle cell crisis because there's not enough hemoglobin to carry the oxygen to needy cells.[19] Wile some regular exercise is good for health and circulation, avoid the strenuous stuff, such as long-distance jogging, cycling and swimming.  Instead, focus on low-impact exercises such as walking, light aerobics, yoga and non-strenuous yard work.  Lifting light-to-medium weights is okay to build and maintain muscle, but heavy lifting is not recommended for people with sickle cell anemia.  Tips  Back in the 1970s, the average lifespan for people with sickle cell anemia was only 14 years, but with modern advances with treatment, people with the condition can now reach 50 years and beyond.  Women with sickle cell anemia usually have less severe symptoms and live longer than men.  Don't smoke and avoid exposure to second-hand smoke, especially if you have sickle cell anemia, because it reduces circulation and makes the blood cells "stickier."

Wow, so this actually happened this morning! A LIVE radio interview with @bbcradioleeds and the fab @stephanie.hirst to share my story behind 35 Before 35!  This great opportunity came along so quickly that I didn’t have too much time to think about it. The interview became challenge #14 as this truly was a MASSIVE challenge for me mentally. So much so, that I may have had sweaty eyes yesterday afternoon when I said yes as I was petrified! I really can’t do public speaking and I even cried in a presentation training session at work last year (yes, a then 32 year old grown up!) that’s how big this morning was for me! I’m actually quite proud of myself!  Thank you so much @bbcradioleeds  and @stephanie.hirst for this great opportunity and for being part of one of my challenges! I’ll be sure to keep you updated with the larger challenges later on this year all in aid of @mindcharity #leedsmind and @yorkshirecancerresearch  For anyone who would like to hear the interview, head to https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p06w1lb3 from 43:54 minutes in!  #35before35 #35challenges35years #fitnessjourney #pma #mindset #stepoutofcomfortzone #pushingboundaries #health #healthy #healthymindset #fundraising #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #cancer #cancerresearch #cancerresearchuk #beatcancer #beatcancersooner #cancersucks
Mona Jhaveri aims to crowdfund cancer away by building a 'Kickstarter' for cancer.  When she couldn’t find funding to commercialize her cancer research discovery, she was inspired to create @soundaffectsorg a crowdfunding platform for cancer drug innovators. Jhaveri says she is trying to suss out “how to build campaigns that are both understandable and compelling to the concerned public” — a key element to success, she says, because most people don’t get what these innovators are working on.

Here’s why a RB duo between @jaysam and @jamesconner would be better than @leveonbell: @jaysam had 56 rushes for 256 yds and a 4.6 y P/car @jamesconner this year had 215 rushes for 973 yds and 4.5 y P/car This would easily be one one the best duos in the @nfl not only because of the 4.5 y P/car avg, but they combined for 81 rec for 696 yds, and 8.4 y P/rec avg.  Now just imagine the fact that we were 31st in r/att per game, Conner would have easily eclipsed a thousand yards even including the 3 games missed. To top that off it would only cost us a combined $1.3M vs @leveonbell’s asking price of +$17M per yr with guarantees beyond the first yr which the #steelers never do. We could just add a special teams RB to top us off and we good. #herewego #steelers #lbell #beatcancer #shalieve #kevincolbert #samuels #wegood

In the beginning of treatment, Easton was unable to do many things that kids his age were able to do. His immune system was so low that we tried our best to keep him inside and keep him entertained around the house. Easton’s twin brother was a very big help.  Easton has received multiple chemo treatments and lumbar punctures. A week after diagnoses Easton also contracted flesh eating bacteria in his leg. He was hospitalized for almost three months for this and received multiple surgeries on his leg. He also had to spend time in ICU due to this infection and ultimately had to learn to walk again. Easton is now walking and running and able to go to school. He does still have difficulty understanding why he can be so "normal" but still have to receive chemo at the doctor every month and also sometimes struggles with the fact that his leg still give him trouble and he cannot keep up with his brother.

Most of you know that we are met through @MyPeakChallenge two years ago. A sports and nutrition program backed by half of the membership fee dedicated to the fight against cancer.  We have won through My Peak Challenge: We live healthier, more conscious, stronger inside and outside... So our idea for our project #workoutbestiesfightagainstcancer was born. We want to give something back and get involved with @Bloodwise and @CahonasScotland, who work to fight blood and testicular cancer👊🏻💥. Of course, we are back at My Peak Challenge again this year (# 3rdYearPeaker). The official workout and nutrition program will start in early February. This year My Peak Challenge started with the #peakstreak, it's the prep for MPC2019 . The #peakstreak is about 💯 this year. You can do 💯 burpees a day, meditate 💯 minutes, read 💯 seconds or 💯 pages in a book ... Here are our #peakstreaks of yesterday:  Eva want to do 💯 reps with 30 percent of her current deadlift weight. Her maximum deadlift is currently 100 kg. Also that meant 💯 repetitions unbroken with 30 kg. In the end she gave more than 💯% and did 175 reps.  I did 💯 Burpee variation "touch a target" 💯 Weighted Sit-Ups 💯 One Hand Dumbbell Row per side  What about you? Just join us and show us your 💯. We look forward to your videos, pictures and comments ❤  If you want to help us in our sweat against a fight against cancer, we are very happy👍🏻😃: Bloodwise❤ www.justgiving.com/fundraising/workoutbesties  Cahona's Scotland💙 www.justgiving.com/fundraising/workoutbesties-fight-against-cancer  #mypeakchallenge #mpc2019 #peakstreak #💯 #joinus #bloodwise #makebloodcancervisible #cahonasscotland #teamtesticles #checkyourballs  #workoutbestiesfightagainstcancer #beatcancer

Simple nutritional meal we whipped up for lunch after today’s cardio burn. Basically we combined kidney beans, spinach and brown rice in a pan of light water and sautéed together with onions, flaxseeds and various seasonings including tumeric, garlic powder, nutritional yeast and vegit. Serve over toasted Ezekiel sprouted bread with sliced avocados and pair with steamed Japanese sweet potatoes to complete the mix of plant-based protein, complex carbs and healthy fats including the all important omega 3. #fitfathers #eatclean #healthylunch

🏀 NOTHING BUT NET 🏀  You know which #basketball Team we were rooting for! What a fantastic crowd and such a buzz. The athletes were enjoying themselves as much as the crowd. We loved seeing our #strongmaxwomen out there representing! Here is the copy from the original post from @suebarronmax: ••• A basketball game that has everyone talking and players already wanting a repeat event next year - that is a huge success! The crowd was electric- so much energy in the room and some big names in the AFL and basketball world participating - all in the name of charity to support families with cancer.  Jodie Hooper- it was your vision and a huge amount of belief that you could pull it off along with support from a team of motivated and passionate people and a mountain of energy and hard work- and you did it and did it so well . Congratulations- it really was an amazing night👌  I was proud to  be a part of this and representing Max International (The Glutathione company) as one of the main sponsors. The perfect synergy as their products are key at helping combat oxidative stress- and what athlete doesn’t have plenty of that!  What a night and if you missed it this year - like  Wudzy  for future event updates and giveaways. ••• #beatcancer #cancersucks #afl #wudzy #wearemax #charity #maxgivesback #gluathione #health #maxaustralia #maxnz #maxnewzealand #glutathione

Many people spend workdays indoors under fluorescent lights and in front of computers, then return home to bask in the glow of television screens.  But research suggests it's important to make time to get outdoors as well, since doing so is beneficial — maybe essential — for human health. Psychologists and health researchers are finding more and more science-backed reasons we should go outside and enjoy the natural world.

We have all been touched by cancer either directly or indirectly and to all the families working through this horrid disease , i send you lots of love and comfort xx. Chronic inflammation is involved in so much disease and cancer is one of them. We have the power to make good decisions to promote health and healing.  Smoking, obesity, stress , refined foods... are all culprits for chronic inflammation  Tomatoes, olive oil,  fatty fish, green leafy veges, garlic... are all amazing as anti inflammatory foods  20 minutes of moderate exercise decreases immune producing cells by 5 %  #cancer #breastcancer #beatcancer #cancersucks #inflammation #beatcancer #health #wellnessblogger #wellnessgoals #wellness #antiinflammatorydiet #exercise #healing #healthyliving #holistichealing #holistic #cancerresearch

We view ourselves as “cancer research venture philanthropists,” making early investments in ideas that are often difficult to fund through more traditional sources.  Our ultimate goal is to bring about the day when the world is celebrating the scientist who has finally unraveled a key to stopping this terrible disease–and when that person steps to the podium, he or she credits the Cancer Research Foundation with providing support when no one else would.
If you’re worried about your inherited cancer risk, #genetictesting can empower you with really important information. It’s worth a talk with your doctor.

Ten years ago my smear test shown abnormal cells on my cervix.  This started a long process of hospital visits, monitoring, biopsies and finally treatment to remove a layer of tissue from my cervix.  All this was to prevent me from developing cervical cancer.  Ten years later I’m still all clear.  Stay healthy. Go for your smear test ladies.  #beatcancer #cervicalcancer #smeartest #paptest #allclear #women #womenshealth #cervix #nhs #health

✨Did you know that I have a free online class called 5 Steps to Thriving Through Cancer? ✨⠀ ⠀ I teach about how we as a family THRIVED through our son’s 3.5 year cancer battle using nutrition, detoxification, essential oils, cleaning up our environment and improving our self care. You can register to watch the class by clicking on the link in my profile! ⠀ ⠀ I love this testimony we just received from Elise C. after she watched the free online class..⠀ ⠀ ‘Thank you so much for this! I was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 with a new primary on the other side in 2003. Had 10 years of no cancer only to have it return metastatic in 2013. I have always tried to incorporate natural therapies along with the traditional but there’s so much info out there! I was often overwhelmed and stuck in analysis paralysis. God WOKE ME up at 4:45 one morning so I got up to read. I did a quick check on Facebook and came across your webinar…there was one at 5 am! So I took it and it resonated with me so much…it’s simple and practical and touches on every aspect I need.’⠀ ⠀ https://events.genndi.com/register/169105139238455808/a5d289969b
A friend of mine, Brian, brought this story to my attention a while back. Meet Easton Carraway 2 1/2 years old. He was diagnosed with cancer for the 3rd time in August and he beat it yet again Oct 25th. What a #miracle i can only image the #trialsandtribulations his parents had to live through in such a short time of this young #warriors life. His dad is a firefighter at the Foley Fire Department andis a good friend of Brian. Easton love his little green #motorcycle and wanted his father to get one to match so they could ride together. #kdub14 gifted Easton this jersey. This little guy is going to be stoked #beatcancer #fuckcancer #geicohonda #amsoil
