Children Are More Vulnerable to Cell Phone Brain Cancer Risk

According to WHO/IARC children absorb two times higher cell phone radiation in the brain and 10 times higher radiation in the skull bone marrow as compared to adults.

Research shows higher brain cancer risk in those who started using phones young.

How will your solution make a difference

Reducing children's exposures at home and in school- where they spend the most time will decrease children's cumulative lifetime exposure to microwave RF-EMF.
Data collection/analysis on exposure/diagnosis is key to characterize pediatric impacts.

What is your proposed solution

Current evidence suggests that children are more vulnerable to the potential carcinogenic effects of cell phones and other microwave-emitting technologies (RF).
Prevention efforts to reduce exposure are urgently needed. Pediatric cancer patients are even more vulnerable and they and their families need to learn how to reduce exposures to promote recovery.
Systematic data needs to be collected on patient RF exposures at diagnosis.

HAMLET-protein kills cancer cells and multiresistant bacteria

HAMLET binds to and kills many different types of cancer cells in vitro. It has been successfully tested on animals and has also had good effect in humans with cancer. The effect is to my knowledge limited in plasma. Hamlet has no known sideeffects..

How will your solution make a difference

Cancerpatients can hopefully be cured without getting sideffects and cancer can be prevented by HAMLET. Multiresistant bacteria on skin or in wounds could hopefully be killed by antibiotics. I think that HAMLET will eventually generate a Nobel prize.

What is your proposed solution

I really think that HAMLET could be a global revolutionary breakthrough when it comes to treating many different types of cancers without the patient getting sideeffects. In studies they have seen that HAMLET makes multiresistant bacteria sensitive to ordinary antibiotics again. I have many ideas about clinical trials, patient treatment, applications, diagnosis and medication and would really like to become involved in this project, Contact me!

Childhood Cancer Survivorship

NIH funding for childhood cancer research equals only 4% of the budget for cancer research), and funding for survivorship research is only a fraction. There are significant health risks to surviving cancer, especially for children.

How will your solution make a difference

Optimal cure involves physical/psychological health, economic stability and independence. Through data/resource-sharing and multi-site studies, dissemination of evidence-based interventions reduces/prevents morbidity in childhood cancer survivors.

What is your proposed solution

We advocate creative partnerships focused on catalyzing scientific breakthroughs in tertiary prevention to avoid/ameliorate late/lasting complications and maintain high cure rates. Robust multi-institutional studies to improve health and quality of life are lacking. We envision a collaborative network of innovative clinician-scientists, parent/survivor advocates, and other disciplines (e.g., genetics/genomics) focused on survivorship research.

Early Integration of Palliative Care for Children with Cancer

Early integration of palliative care for children with cancer can mitigate suffering. There is a pressing need to accelerate research that defines how best to extend the benefits of early integration of palliative care in the cancer trajectory.

How will your solution make a difference

It is anticipated that accelerating discoveries in palliative care will increase access to these services and improve utilization of resources so that expert palliative care will be available to all who are suffering from the ravages of cancer.

What is your proposed solution

The proposed solution is funding innovative research that addresses Improved access to palliative care services early in the cancer trajectory through collaborative partnerships; national operationalization of the Concurrent Care Act to ensure adequate mechanisms for palliative care and expansion of education to build primary palliative cancer care competencies for bedside clinicians in areas not well served by palliative care specialists.

Radiogel. A Smart Bullet for Cancer!

This is in dedication to my father who was the ultimate Cancer Fighter! He was President of the National Association of Cancer Patients and all he wanted was to cure cancer! He felt he had a solution with medical isotopes but especially Radiogel.

How will your solution make a difference

My niece did this video, dedicated to my father! This is completely unauthorized by the company. My dad would have insisted I post it and wouldn't care if I/he got in trouble. Fear of a cure!

What is your proposed solution

My father helped develop Radiogel, and all he cared was getting it to the patients. He was so adamant about getting patients a treatment but the "business people" told him to calm down and not to talk to patients because it was not FDA approved. He would always tell people he had a "cure for cancer" and everyone told him, you can't use the word "cure"! He didn't care about the $ or commercialization! It didn't happen in his lifetime.

Pediatric Cancer

Pediatric cancer mainly develops in still developing cells.

The biggest requirement for new cells in a child will be in still developing cells, or cells with a quick turnover. These are cells where cancer could be produced if cell cycle is inhibited. At 6, the requirement to regenerate cells is diminished.

How will your solution make a difference

As long as you know what the mutation is that causes the cancer, a pharmaceutical treatment should be able to be produced to treat that specific cancer. Any treatment must be intermittent as you will be altering the cell cycle.

What is your proposed solution

For each kind of pediatric cancer you will have to determine what mutation is causing that cancer. The treatment solution will have to overcome the mutation and allow the G1 phase of the cell cycle to start. All pediatric cancers such as Leukemia, Brain Tumors, and Neuroblastoma etc. are all undergoing a requirement for newly developing cells. These all require a working G1 phase of the cell cycle. Check CDK Cyclin D1 levels to prove loss of G1.

Family Support to Facilitate Care at Research Centers

Pediatric cancer affects the whole family, and resources may be lacking to take a child to a research center for best quality of care and access to clinical trials.

How will your solution make a difference

This solution will result in more children participants for clinical trials. It will result in more children with cancer having access to best care. It will help level disparities in care snd improve care for rural residents.

What is your proposed solution

All funding for pediatric cancer research should include provision for generous financial support for families of clinical trial participants, as needed. Funding should also be provided for other children to come to the research center for care even if not eligible for a clinical trial on an agreed upon ratio. Support can include travel costs, income replacement, and access to support services in home area.

Children's Cause for Cancer Advocacy, Founder & Chair

A new corporation is needed to minimize cost and risk to biopharma of discovering and developing new anti-cancer agents for children. It will exploit new science and coordinate resources efficiently to bring effective new therapies to children.

How will your solution make a difference

A company dedicated to discovery and development of anti-cancer agents for children will maximize selection of effective new therapies, shorten the time for pediatric access and focus research and development on resistant and refractory cancers.

What is your proposed solution

A new national public/private corporation needs to be formed to assume financial and development risks of bringing safer and more anti-cancer agents to children. A corporate business model can attract private, government and philanthropic investment, manage and translate scientific findings into therapeutic development. Alternative models to solve this problem exist and require national level analysis and evaluation to move forward for children.

From cause to prevention

The causes of pediatric cancer remain a mystery because its rarity necessitates case-control studies. However, now that variants related to ALL and NB are known, one can conceive of a putting together a prospective study among higher-risk kids

How will your solution make a difference

A well-conducted cohort study will answer questions about the causes of ALL and neuroblastoma that have lingered for over thirty years due to a reliance on case-control studies.

What is your proposed solution

The combination of gene variants associated with ALL and neuroblastoma now define a population of children with moderately high risk of these cancers (i.e. ~10X greater than background). This puts incidence at a level where a cohort study is feasible for two of the most common childhood cancers. Working with a state newborn screening program or health plan, kids can be genotyped and those with highest risk invited into a seminal cohort study.

Executive Director

I have been working as a pediatric oncology social worker for 25 years. Three years into my career, my youngest child was diagnosed with lymphoma and died 6 months later. All he wanted to do was go to school and be "normal".

How will your solution make a difference

Most children on treatment are home and enrolled in Homebound Medical programs. Many parents are home with their sick child and unable to work. The 1Voice Academy would allow children to be together and parents to have a place to bring their child.

What is your proposed solution

The 1Voice Academy, the first school in the United States for children with cancer will provide an innovative learning environment for academic, recreational and social support for children battling cancer. Offering supportive surroundings, the 1Voice Academy will enhance wellness, compliment healing and foster the recovery process in a sterile environment, which will maximize strengths and minimize challenges. No stigma and not the only one.

'Jack's 12 Pebbles' Microchip Therapy Determination for DIPG

Accessing the tumor and determination of correct therapy are the 2 major challenges to treating DIPG. Jack's 12 Pebbles microchip technology offers determination of the best possible therapy for the individual child over the course of a weekend.

How will your solution make a difference

The technology and its application encourage further development of personalized, targeted therapies for testing, and reduce risk of incompatibility causing paralysis and even death, and saves time for these kids with 9-month median survival.

What is your proposed solution

While Dr. Souweidane at Cornell and Dr. Gill at Bristol have developed procedures for direct tumor access, determination of efficacy and safety of therapeutic agents for the individual child is still extremely high-risk. Jack's 12 Pebbles microchip project at Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute shows great promise in saving time in determining, over the course of a weekends time, the best medication combination for the child.
