Every mastectomy scar is unique. The way it feels and looks depends on the woman who is wearing it, and what her body endured before and after the removal of one or both breasts. SEE ALSO: Breast cancer survivor gets tattoo over scars, ends up falling in love with the artist Tattoo artist David Allen has spent the past few years learning these complex intricacies. In that time, he's adorned several dozen cancer survivors with chest tattoos of plants, flowers and branches to give their scars new meaning and the women who bear them a newfound sense of beauty and agency. "They've gone through a process where they've lost control," says Allen. "The beauty is that they're in control of this." Read more...

Ensuring these tasks were completed and documented was an arduous process and it used to be done the old fashion way: with lots of paperwork. In U.S. hospitals alone, over a billion patient blood tests are processed annually.* These tests range from simply determining a patient’s blood type to more critical testing for diabetes or cancer. At ProMedica, they know the success of a patient’s treatment plan depends on the accuracy and timeliness of these tests. ProMedica Laboratories needed a better way to perform routine quality inspections and equipment maintenance. In addition, a systematic process was needed to detect any errors that may have occurred along the way. To do this, ProMedica Laboratories partnered with software company Kaonsoft , member of the Microsoft Partner Network, to build the Assured Compliance Solution (ACS) on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

Anyone with a family history of cancer knows that regular screenings are vital if youre going to catch cancerous cells early. For me, that has meant yearly pap tests since I was 24. In 2011, I found myself uninsured, caring for my three children on my own. The only place I could turn to keep protecting myself was Planned Parenthood . For four years, they gave me an annual reassurance that I was healthy that I wouldnt go bankrupt from medical bills, that I could continue to be there for my children. Thats what I told my Congressman , Jason Chaffetz , at a recent town hall in Salt Lake City. I was there along with more than 1,000 people inside and outside the auditorium to press him on protecting Utahns from the Donald Trump-Mike Pence agenda, which includes defunding Planned Parenthood. The Administration would block people who rely on federal health programs like Medicaid from going to Planned Parenthood for care.

Corruption is a cancer. It is insidious. In a whole variety of ways. One of the good things about this bill is that it is seeking in this complex area to make a number of very clear aspects of progress. In an area where I feel the former by Minister and former Chancellor of the Exchequer and others in the government on these benches have made a very big contribution in that fight to tackle corruption.
