New Bra Invention Helps Fight Cancer

Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 29, 2012

Austin entrepreneurs Jacqueline Romanies and Bryan Daigle have teamed up to refine and produce Jacquelines invention, a patent pending hanger for bras, lingerie and swimwear which helps extend the life of the garments, and saves precious closet and drawer space. The BraLadder Hanger can be used with most plastic hangers or clotheslines to vertically dry and store bras and other intimates, extending the uniformity and life of straps, and preventing lumps and warps due to storing bras in drawers and cramped closets. After nine months of development and working with industrial designers and manufacturers, the team recently launched BraLadder on BraLadder.com and Amazon.com. 1% of sales of the product are donated to the Save the Ta-Tas Foundation benefitting breast cancer research.

Made of durable plastic with top and bottom hooks and vertical rails, the BraLadder Hanger can be used for drying, storage, and organization. Long Tail Products, Mr. Daigles product development company, worked with industrial designers from around the globe to ensure the BraLadder was elegant, compact and functional. As a result, the hanger looks good enough to be hung anywhere in the house or dorm room, and portable enough to travel in a suitcase. The BraLadder comes with four rails that hold up to five bras, and can be extended by daisy chaining more rails to create a long ladder to dry and store more garments.

Priced at $ 14.95, the BraLadder is available immediately to consumers and retailers through BraLadder.com and Amazon.com.

The BraLadder prototypes have seen interest from multiple prospective retail partners and Direct Response companies.

The Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation and the Scripps Research Institute Partner to Advance Genomic Breast Cancer Research


Sioux Falls, SD, Jupiter, FL, La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

The Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation and The Scripps Research Institute(TSRI) today announced a dynamic, interdisciplinary collaboration that will lay the groundwork for significant advancements in personalized breast cancer treatment and care.

Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Research will leverage TSRIs expertise in genomic sequencing as it embarks on a proof-of-concept study to reveal the differences between a womans normal genome and her breast tumor genome during the progression of disease. The project marks an important milestone for Edith Sanford, as it will establish research protocols to frame larger-scale studies that will help pioneer the integration of genomics into breast cancer research and patient care.

Edith Sanford is thrilled to partner with Scripps Research, an institution that is on the cutting-edge of genomics, and harness their expertise and technological capabilities in our work to accelerate these discoveries from the bench to bedside, said Brian Leyland Jones, MB BS, PhD, director of Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Research. This partnership will facilitate the translation of large-scale sequencing data into meaningful information that will help us understand how to more precisely and accurately treat breast cancer patients based on their DNA profiles.

Specifically, Edith Sanford will provide TSRI with tissue samples from 25 breast cancer patients for analysis to identify the changes in genes and proteins that are linked to the cancer and Edith Sanford will then validate these findings through clinical testing.

Scripps Research is committed to helping accelerate the work of Edith Sanford to bring to patients the lifesaving potential of forward genomic research, said Brandon Young, director of the Genomics and Cell-Based Screening Core Lab at Scripps Florida. We are excited to work with Edith Sanford as it is establishing a genomics program that will transform the way we think about and treat breast cancer.

Young and colleagues, Nicholas Schork, PhD, Ali Torkamani, PhD, and Andrew Su, PhD, at Scripps California, and the Genomics Core at Scripps Florida will be working jointly with the research team at Edith Sanford.

Additionally, in order to mine and accurately interpret vast sets of patient data produced in this field of research, Edith Sanford recently established the foundation for a leading bioinformatics program through the hire of Scooter Willis, PhD, as its director of computational bioinformatics. Dr. Willis is a specialist in computer science and engineering and brings expertise in the genomic analysis of expression data from the fast-moving field of next-generation sequencing. He will also work closely with TSRI and play a vital role in facilitating the partnership.

The prestigious partnership with TSRI, which Leland-Jones confirms is the first of many high-caliber collaborations, and the ongoing recruitment of leading scientific experts, are pivotal steps for Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Research as it positions itself as a national hub for breast cancer genomic research.

Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Research is supported by the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer through genomic and translational research. Thanks to a transformational gift that launched the Foundation in 2011 and will catalyze its future growth, Edith Sanford is able to commit 100 percent of every contribution to its research program.

To change the course of breast cancer, our research team is pursuing collaborations to bring together the brightest minds from different scientific fields to quickly move the field of breast cancer research, treatment and care, said Kimberly Simpson Earle, president of the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation.

About the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation

Breast Cancer Prevention with Vitamin D: GrassrootsHealth Paradigm


Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012

GrassrootsHealth focus is on prevention of breast cancer, not early detection. Our aim is to engage women in the primary prevention of breast cancer by getting their vitamin D serum levels tested and then getting that level to the 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L) range, says Carole Baggerly, director of GrassrootsHealth.

According to Dr. Cedric F. Garland of the Moores Cancer Center and the UCSD School of Medicine:

This will potentially be the most important action ever conducted toward prevention of breast cancer. The more women who participate in this study, the greater the chance that we will defeat breast cancer within our lifetimes.

Women across the world are invited to enroll in a 5-year Breast Cancer Prevention Study initiated by GrassrootsHealth. To be eligible to enroll, women must be at least 60 years of age and have no current cancer. A free vitamin D home test kit will be provided for the first 1000 women to enroll. The study aims to fully demonstrate health outcomes of vitamin D serum levels in the range of 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L) and will examine the occurrence of breast cancer among a population of women 60 and over who achieve and maintain a targeted vitamin D serum level in the bloodstream. In addition to breast cancer prevention, short-term effects of vitamin D such as hypertension, falls, colds and flu will also be tracked. More information can be found at http://www.grassrootshealth.net.

Funding for this enrollment is being actively solicited by GrassrootsHealth. Participants as well as other sponsors are encouraged to make a donation of at least $ 75 to help cover the costs of this step in the project. The total funding goal for this cycle is $ 150,000. Everyone can donate at http://www.razoo.com/story/Prevent-Breast-Cancer.

We are expecting to find individuals and organizations who can help us meet our target of $ 300,000 per year. This will cover the participation of 1000 women for two vitamin D screenings per year and the analysis of the information. We have been funded entirely by private individuals and private organizations. Currently, both Bio-Tech Pharmacal and the Vitamin D Society are helping fund D*action Community Breast Cancer Prevention Projects in Northwest Arkansas and Canada respectively.

There is a large group of people who are ready for action to prevent breast cancer. We sincerely hope that those people will help by donating directly to this effort to demonstrate how we can do primary prevention, not early detection. Ive had breast cancer. I dont want anyone else to get it! says Carole Baggerly, director of GrassrootsHealth.

Fishing Clothing Company Fights Skin Cancer


(PRWEB) July 24, 2012

As the heat of summer intensifies, a fishing tackle company has introduced an innovative clothing line to help sportsman reduce their risk of skin cancer. These performance fishing shirts help anglers and boaters protect themselves from the damaging UV rays. According to the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Cancer Society, melanoma and other skin cancers are on the rise, with between one and two million diagnosed cases per year. Now the American Fishing and Tackle Company, AFTCO, makers of Guy Harvey signature shirts and apparel, offers anglers and others a solution.

As fishermen, its impossible to avoid exposure to the sun, said AFTCO president Bill Shedd.

And sunscreens can wash off, leaving our skin unprotected. We were determined to make something that was comfortable for fishing but provided maximum protection.

While typical shirts may have a UV rating around 10, AFTCOs state-of-the-art, long-sleeve fishing shirts have an SPF of 30+. They also have special buffs, sometimes called gators, that cover the neck and lower face, also with the same 30+ SPF rating. Its not enough to wear a ball cap and a t-shirt anymore, Shedd said. Especially as we get older. Its about using technology to wear the right kind of materials. According to the National Cancer Institute, the majority of people diagnosed with melanoma are white men over the age of 50 also a strong demographic in fishing.

AFTCO has not only come out with high-tech, sun-resistant material, but theyve also designed their fishing clothing line with art from hall-of-fame fisherman and artist, Dr. Guy Harvey.

The most important thing is safety, Shedd said. But why not look good too? Guys vivid art depicts classic fishing scenes and marine specie, so its a perfect fit for our line of protective clothing.

In addition to their commitment to creating protective clothing, AFTCO is also focused on protecting the marine environment. A portion of every clothing items sold is donated to support the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. In 2011, the GHOF funded more than a million dollars in research and education related to the marine environment.

"Fishermen are some of the greatest stewards of the oceans," Shedd said. "We're proud to be able to fund the great work done by the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation."

For all boaters, fishermen and water enthusiasts, Guy Harvey Sportswear is a perfect trifecta. It looks good, it protects from the sun's harmful rays and it supports marine conservation.

AFTCOs Guy Harvey apparel is available at more than 1,500 retail stores such as West Marine, Bass Pro Shops, Hibbetts Sporting Goods, Academy Sports and Bealls Department Stores.

Ogilvy & Mather Raises a stache For Movember and Cancer Research


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2011

This past November, 78 employees from marketing firm Ogilvy & Mathers New York office and sister company The Brand Unions 21 global offices partnered together to raise funds for the Movember organization, a non-profit that builds awareness for mens health and cancer research. In total, Ogilvy and The Brand Union raised $ 9,270 in the 2011 MoDown. With help from custom signs company Signazon.com, Ogilvy and The Brand Union encouraged employees to grow their own mustaches and also contribute donations for the cause.

Every November since 2004, men across the globe have joined forces to grow moustaches and change the face of mens health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Participants create teams which are tasked with shaving their faces on November 1st and growing out a mustache the entire month of Movember, taking pictures along the way. The pictures are posted on each teams page on the Movember website, so that donors may track the progress of the team as well as the moustaches.

Looking to generate excitement about their companys participation in the Movember movement, The Brand Union contacted Dallas, TX-based e-commerce company Signazon.com with a unique idea. Signazon.com printed 1000 custom clear decals in 10 different moustache designs for use throughout the Ogilvy New York office as well as The Brand Unions offices across the globe. The moustache window clings were placed on glass doors as well as bathroom mirrors in anticipation for Team Ogilvy/The Brand Unions participation in Movember. Employees both male and female were able to try on various moustaches to see what theyd look like with a handlebar, fu Manchu, or other type of stache.

This is a tremendously-creative use of our product, and we were excited to be involved with such a storied brand like Ogilvy & Mather, says Rick D., CEO of Signazon.com, Ogilvy and The Brand Union needed a high-quality material for temporary display that could easily be removed, and so our Clear Static Cling was the perfect choice. Richard Bates, Chief Creative Officer of The Brand Unions North America office, had this to say, Late one night we placed the clings on every clear glass surface possible at Ogilvy and in our own office at The Brand Union. We even had them on the mirrors in all the womens restrooms. The moustache clings were a great, fun photo opportunity and a playful reminder for employees to join the team and solicit donations during the entire month of Movember.

Congratulations are in order to Ogilvy & Mather and The Brand Union for their significant contributions to such a worthwhile causemo doubt about it!
