Before she had to seriously worry about when she might die. "I found out something was wrong because my right leg swelled up enormously," Sheppard said. "They did an ultrasound and found I was completely full of these lymph nodes. It was stage IV large-cell lymphoma." Grueling chemotherapy treatments have started robbing her of mobility. "It's a strange nerve thing," she said. "I don't always know where my feet are. I have to look down to see where they are." And the symptoms "will be progressively worse.

This falls in line with the general principle that seems to run through all the Health Tech & You finalists: data is key. And nowhere are we more dependent on machines than when dealing with data. According to a recent report by the UK national academy of science The Royal Society , 90% of the worlds data has been created in the last five years, and machine learning is the only feasible way to process this deluge of data. And symptoms arent the only thing being tracked. Another of the award winners, Affinity, is a device for cancer patients that uses a fingerprint scanner to measure red blood cell, white blood cell and platelet counts to assess their susceptibility to infection during chemotherapy. Millie Clive-Smith, co-founder of Entia , the company behind Affinity told us: If you start developing an infection it can be a very rapid timeframe for you to become seriously, seriously unwell.

The death toll increased to at least 51 people after a policeman, Jorge Escandon, died after being injured in Carabobo state and three people died in protests in Barinas, the prosecutor's office said on Monday. Hundreds of people also have been injured and more than 2,600 arrested, with about 1,000 still jailed, according to rights groups. On Monday, opposition supporters and doctors in white robes tried to march to the Health Ministry in Caracas to demand access to proper treatment amid major shortages of medicines ranging from painkillers to chemotherapy drugs. Today, I'm not here as a lawmaker, I'm here marching for my sister who has a cerebral tumor, a tumor that is growing again and producing paralysis, a tumor for which Venezuela used to receive medicine and the injections for this not to happen, said opposition lawmaker Miguel Pizarro.

A VERY special friend of mine, Vijaya Lakshmi, passed away last week. She was first diagnosed with cancer about 16 years ago. After the usual treatment (surgery and chemotherapy) she was well, active and continued with her duties at Universiti Sains Malaysia. In the last year or so, she had a relapse. The disease progressed; among other things it led to her ribs breaking. But that did not affect her spirit. She was always cheerful, not allowing what ailed her body or mind raise its hood and erode her positivity. Remarkable strength. We would often have tea at USM, often accompanied by a mutual friend, a medical doctor with a passion for public health. When the doctor was with us the discussions would often veer towards healthcare, the economics of health and the political economy of the pharmaceutical industry. Viji, as we called her, would contribute enthusiastically to the conversation.

A terminally ill bride-to-be refused to let a rare type of incurable cancer stop her from marrying the love of her life. In hospice, surrounded by loved ones, Madisonville, Tennessee, resident Ronda Bivens married the father of her two young children Thursday in an impromptu service organized by family and friends. She wanted to have a beautiful wedding, and I wanted to give her that, Rondas husband, Matt Mager, told HuffPost. Rondas best friend, Amanda Dalton, was among those who helped organize the nuptials. It was friends calling friends, getting everything together, said Dalton, who helped get Ronda into a donated wedding dress. We called the county clerks office ― they sent someone out ― and we got a preacher. It happened literally within a couple hours once we got it rolling. Rondas wedding day, which was also her 28th birthday, came after more than a year of chemotherapy, radiation and the amputation of her right leg, with Matt all the while by her side.

Former Detroit Lions kicker and linebacker Wayne Walker died on Friday at the age of 80. Per Bill Dow of the Detroit Free Press , Walker was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2015 and was fighting the disease until his death. Walker had previously been diagnosed with throat cancer in 2007. He announced the disease had gone into remission in 2009 following chemotherapy and radiation treatment. A fourth-round draft pick by the Lions in 1958, Walker played his entire 15-year career with the franchise. He split time between linebacker and kicker throughout his playing career and was named to three Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team. Walker was also named to the Lions' all-time team to commemorate the franchise's 75th anniversary in 2008. Following his football career, Walker spent 20 years as a sports director for San Francisco Bay Area news station KPIX before retiring to Idaho, per SF Gate's Steve Kroner .

Stem Cells to Bone Marrow In two separate studies, researchers have successfully created blood stem cells in a laboratory setting for the first time. These types of cells are found in bone marrow and can be depleted by diseases like leukemia and even by the treatments for those diseases, such as chemotherapy. George Daley , Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard, and his team started with pluripotent stem cells, which can give rise to just about any type cell in our anatomy. By looking at what proteins controlled the genes in bone marrow cells, they were able to isolate several that were essential to cell differentiation (the process by which stem cells become a specific kind of cell). They then applied them to the pluripotent cells in order to encourage them to turn into the cells found in bone marrow. Another team lead by Raphael Lis , Instructor in Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, took cells from the lungs of animals, and found four factors that encourage the lung stem cells to make blood stem cells.
