Talia Joy Castellano: Teenage girl with terminal cancer launches a fashion line On CoverGirl

See on Scoop.itSoup for thought

Talia Joy Castellano, from Orlando, Florida, was first diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma cancer on Valentine’s Day in 2007.

malek‘s insight:

 While I can admire this brave young girl’s positive attitude and desire to make the best of a terrible situation, she is being used to promote subtle propaganda. The population is being taught to celebrate disease and passively accept–and even glorify death, instead of being encouraged to question WHY are more and more people being afflicted with cancer

FaceBook: Emotional Message from Elizabeth Edwards

WASHINGTON - JULY 28:  Elizabeth Edwards, a se...

Update: Our dear Elizabeth passed away few minutes ago, on Tuesday 7th around 7 pm EST. A loss for humanity at large.

 

An inspirational character in her final days!

Elizabeth Edwards, separated wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards has posted a moving message to her family and friends on Facebook. Is she dying soon?.

The author of “Resilience” found out in 2007, during her husband’s presidential campaign that her breast cancer had spread to her bones, and that treatment was ineffective.

Elizabeth Edwards was  informed that her breast cancer has spread to the liver, and doctors “recommend against additional treatment.” She does not appear to be challenging that recommendation.

Apparently John is by her side along with the family. Awkwardness aside, that must mean that things are really near the end.

That really breaks my heart.

Water, H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical “dihydrogen monoxide.”

And for plenty of good reasons, since:

  1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
  2. it is a major component in acid rain
  3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
  4. accidental inhalation can kill you
  5. it contributes to erosion
  6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
  7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.

  • Forty-three (43) said yes,
  • six (6) were undecided,
  • and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.

The title of his prize winning project was, “How Gullible Are We?”

He feels the conclusion is obvious.

Emma Poole used surplus tissue from her body to go from a 32 B to a C cup

Poole

The operation, carried out under local anaesthetic, involves the patient having fat removed during liposuction, mixed with other body cells, and then reinjected into the breasts.

Emma considered injections of synthetic filler Macrolane – a procedure known as ‘the boob jab’, which can boost the breasts by a cup size.

‘I began speaking to surgeons about other options, which is how I was offered the chance of having a PILF breast enhancement by the Viel brothers.

Surgical fat transfer is nothing new. During the two-hour procedure, liposuction is used to remove fat from the patient’s stomach or thigh area.

‘Traditional liposuction involves the surgeon manually breaking up the fat with a cannula – a tube that removes fluid – often rupturing blood vessels within the fat, causing bruising, bleeding and possibly nerve damage,’ says Dr Roberto Viel.

‘So we use Vaser Lipo, a machine that uses ultrasound waves to liquidise the fat, allowing us to remove fat cells while causing minimal damage.’

Around two-and-a-half pints of fat are needed to boost the breasts by one cup size.

After the fat harvest, 50ml of the patient’s blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate cells known as platelets which contain stem cells, which are mixed with harvested fat and injected into the breasts.

The areas where the fat would be removed were circled with a felt-tip pen, as were the areas on the breasts into which the fat would be injected. The swelling seemed to have settled and my breasts were not so sore – in fact, the puncture sites were more painful than the breasts.’

More importantly, there is the issue of breast cancer.

It is also possible to get calcification in the breast tissue.

Layla Grace: Tomorrow will always be there for you


Two year toddler, Layla Grace passed away after a battle with cancer. We’ve been watching the story closely as her parents took it to Twitter to spread the word and raise awareness about this disease. They also updated a blog on their website http://www.laylagrace.org.

There are about 650 new cases of Neuroblastoma each year in the United States and 50% of those occur in children under the age of two.

Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to her family.
