Momcology Endorses Psychosocial Standards Of Care For Children With Cancer And Their Families

Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation Momcology

Momcology Endorses Mattie Miracle Standards of Care

Leading Peer Support Provider for Childhood Cancer Families Supports First-Ever Comprehensive Psychosocial Standards of Care For Children with Cancer Families

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Momcology, a national 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (www.momcology.org) has endorsed the Psychosocial Standards of Care for Children with Cancer and their families. The scientific, evidence-based psychosocial standards first published in a special supplement of Pediatric Blood & Cancer, defines an optimal level of Psychosocial care that all children with cancer and their families should receive.

“We learned firsthand having watched our child go through devastating medical treatments for his diagnosis that childhood cancer is not just about the medicine! We are deeply pleased to be partnering with Momcology and leveraging their deep connections to families, to help educate and spread awareness that families have a right to advocate for Standard of Psychosocial Care as they go through their cancer journey" said Victoria Sardi-Brown, Co-Founder of the Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation. The Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation envisioned the creation and development of the first-ever, evidence-based Standards of Care to ensure patients and families have access to an optimal level of psychosocial care from the time of diagnosis, through survivorship, or end of life and bereavement care.

Founded in 2011, Momcology has reached over 8,500 families and the connections and friendships made, information shared, and events held, have become an integral part of the cancer caregiver story and continues to transform life after diagnosis for many families who connect with Momcology.

Momcology has become both the peer and professionally recommended resource for responsible online and in-person peer social support and has inspired countless new connecting efforts. Momcology currently connects over 200 families per month to secure, moderated and guideline-based online support, and has built a much-needed community, including efforts to develop wrap-around programs focused on meeting the needs to support a growing population of hurting parents.

“Our work at Momcology affords us the privilege to support families by providing a national platform for primary caregivers to connect with one another, seek current and timely information, and begin the long-term healing process after a childhood cancer diagnosis,” said Kim Buff, Executive Director and founder of Momcology. “The Standards of Psychosocial Care are a vital resource for caregivers to be aware of and to know that they have a right to advocate for themselves and their families in seeking a minimum standard of Psychosocial care and support. We consider this endorsement a call-to-action within the parent community that we can and must do better to care for the psychosocial needs of families.”

The development of the Psychosocial Standards of Care is a major step forward in addressing the needs of children with cancer and their families. The integration of psychosocial care along with disease-directed treatment improves the quality of life across the cancer trajectory. Depression and other psychosocial concerns can affect adherence to treatment regimens and decrease coping abilities. Therefore, making psychosocial care an essential component of standard treatment maximizes positive treatment outcomes.

The Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation and the team of pediatric oncology experts, advocates, policy and lawmakers, along with health insurers and accrediting associations, are working to scale a rapid adoption of the Standards at the over 200 clinical sites throughout the country that treat childhood cancer cases.

Velvel Grach Discusses the Current Use and Future Potential of Drones

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL, UNITED STATES, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Velvel Grach is a tech reviewer who enlightens his online readers about consumer products and advances in various tech industries. For years, he’s followed the growth of the consumer drone industry and below discusses how society currently uses them as well as their potential for future use.

Velvel Grach remembers how remote-controlled toy cars were the big consumer craze just two decades ago, allowing children and adults to wirelessly pilot small vehicles as they saw fit. Within the last ten years, remote technology has advanced far enough to allow consumers to invest in a range of flying drone products, which has fueled a growth in tech development. As a result, drones are being implemented more heavily into recreation as well as professional roles (such as package delivery or security).

“Computers have shown to enhance basically all our processes and improve our lives in dramatic ways,” says Velvel Grach. “Drones are slowly doing the same thing under the radar while the consumer market for them continues to expand.”

In no time at all, the consumer aerial drone went from existing only in science fiction and Hollywood films to a major product available in stores across the country. Before this, however, drones were mainly developed for and used in warfare, which later paved the way for manufacturers to market their own versions.

Military drones have been used for years as the unmanned weaponry meant there were no casualties on the pilot’s side as it allowed them to deliver attacks from a safe distance away. In the beginning, drones were largely used for various surveillance needs but were later weaponized and used as remote soldiers in the field.

“As far back as a hundred years ago, ‘drones’ referred to things like unmanned balloons loaded with weapons that were used in war,” says Velvel Grach. “Today we have drones carrying fighter guns that send live visual reports back to remote commanders.”

Drone usage in warfare eventually led to more peaceful applications once the technology was available to consumers and society as a whole. Within the early 2000s, drones began to appear for sale in tech catalogs and chain retailers (such as RadioShack and Sharper Image). From there, the technology was adopted by professionals such as firefighters and surveying teams to accomplish feats humans couldn’t accomplish without extreme risk. Soon, relief forces were using drones to shuttle water and other materials in when battling wildfires. Other industries implemented drones to safely spray pesticides on crops and inspect pipelines without the associated dangers.

Today, drones are used to survey land without requiring people to physically trek through various terrain. Companies like Amazon, UPS, and Walmart currently use drones in package delivery and have a definite plan in the works to make that service available to more customers.

“As we develop stronger, more able devices, I think drones will prove to expedite many processes and improve our everyday lives just as computers have,” says Velvel Grach.

Dr. Eugenio Galindo marks six months at groundbreaking new cancer facility

Dr. Eugenio Galindo

MISSION, TEXAS, USA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cancer specialist Dr. Eugenio Galindo and his team celebrate six months at McAllen Oncology's cutting edge new facility, first unveiled earlier this year.

Unveiled in January, Dr. Eugenio Galindo and McAllen Oncology's cutting edge brand new cancer center is touted to be the only facility of its kind in South Texas, boasting state of the art facilities such as a diagnostic imaging center, plus an innovative community infusion center, private suites, its own laboratory, and more. Dr. Galindo looks back on the center's grand opening earlier this year.

"My team and I were immensely proud to welcome almost 400 patients and their families to the grand opening of McAllen Oncology's new cancer center at the beginning of the year," reveals Dr. Galindo of the event which took place on January 11. A veteran of the field of oncology for more than 30 years, Dr. Eugenio Galindo staged the grand opening in association with the Texas city of McAllen's famous Chamber of Commerce.

A number of prominent figures from the city also joined current and former patients for the event. "It was a fantastic day," recalls Dr. Eugenio Galindo of the celebration six months ago. The oncology specialist and his team, from the all-new facility, are now able to offer what he calls complete care in a truly state of the art cancer center.

"We've now enjoyed six months at our new location on North G Street in McAllen," he adds of the recent move, "proudly offering complete cancer care to patients in a truly state of the art facility."

According to Dr. Galindo, the groundbreaking cancer center represents the only facility of its kind not just in McAllen, but across the whole of South Texas. The facility's unveiling, ribbon cutting, and grand opening at the start of the year was held in association with the McAllen Chamber of Commerce. January also marked a similar event for the area's Rio Grande Regional Hospital which broke ground during the first month of 2019.

Established in the mid-1920s, the McAllen Chamber of Commerce's predecessor, the McAllen Businessmen's Club, drove much of the initial development of the city of McAllen, according to Dr. Galindo. "The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is now the largest chamber in a 15 county area," he points out, "and is widely regarded as the most progressive, most innovative, and most cutting edge chamber in the whole region, which is great news for the city."

"It's fitting, therefore," adds Dr. Eugenio Galindo, wrapping up, "that we, at McAllen Oncology, also pride ourselves on our progressive, innovative, and cutting edge approach to cancer care here in southernmost Texas."

Mark A. Pinsky Delivers State-of-the-Art Laser Skin Treatments to Patients in the Palm Beach Area

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Working from offices in the Palm Beach area, renowned plastic surgeon Mark A. Pinsky has gained international recognition for his revolutionary procedures for hair, face, and body. To help his clients achieve bright, youthful complexions, he offers state-of-the-art laser skin treatments.

In Florida, patients can receive head-to-toe plastic surgery and beauty solutions from some of the most skilled hands in the entire country. At the offices of Mark A. Pinsky, patients receive dedicated care and sophisticated procedures that help them look and feel their absolute best.

Apart from being an international leader in breast augmentation, Mark A. Pinsky has also developed a reputation for providing some of the best skincare treatments on the market. He’s patented his own special blend of serums that are recognized across the nation for correcting years of skin damage and signs of aging for men and women.

In addition, he provides some of the most sophisticated and impactful skincare procedures from his offices in the Palm Beach area.

“Our goal at Pinsky Plastic Surgery is to provide beautiful, natural results for everyone by employing only the latest breakthroughs in beauty procedures and regimens,” says Mark A. Pinsky.

Each patient of Mark A. Pinsky receives dedicated care and tailored plans that utilize surgical and nonsurgical techniques––in addition to patented skincare products––to help them achieve an invigorated, youthful complexion. Keeping true to his promise of providing optimal procedures, Mark A. Pinsky is proud to offer laser skin resurfacing procedures to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve scar tissue and discolored skin from UV damage.

The revolutionary laser skin resurfacing procedures Mark A. Pinsky offers at his offices lift the outer layers of skin, which allows for healthy new skin to grow in its place. The laser skin procedures he uses rely on pulsed light to target deep layers and provide longer-lasting results than chemical peels or microdermabrasion.
The team at Pinsky Plastic Surgery tailor individual treatment plans to meet the unique needs of their clients. First, Mark A. Pinsky evaluates each individual so that he can determine whether they will benefit the most from laser resurfacing. In addition to tailoring a procedure schedule to achieve the best results, the team at Pinsky Plastic Surgery will recommend customized skincare regimens for before and after procedures (such as Mark A. Pinksy’s patented skIN3 line).

Broadband light treatments offered at Pinsky Plastic Surgery utilize specific wavelengths to treat many skin conditions on the surface. The procedure uses filters to select the correct wavelength needed to combat signs of aging and repair damaged skin. While it’s effective at repairing fine lines and wrinkles, the treatment also can correct the damage done from the sun and improve the appearance of lesions such as age spots and freckles.

“Laser skin treatments are quickly becoming the ultimate solution for beautiful, youthful skin,” says Mark A. Pinsky.

Several pieces are expected to vie for top lot of the auction. One is a beautiful Egyptian panel from the lid of a sarcophagus, dating to the Late Period (circa 664-332 BC). The 33 ½ inch tall panel, formerly in the collection of the late actor Larry Hagman, is fashioned from wood panels, with the “mummy mask” still attached and the headdress still in place (est. $12,000-$20,000).

A fantastic, large Archaic Greek stone head of a Kouros from the 6th century BC, with large, almond shaped eyes and hair in long curled locks, has a pre-sale estimate of $18,000-$25,000. The head is 19 inches tall by 14 inches wide and comes with a large custom base. It was formerly in the collection of Dr. Elie Borowski and was exhibited in the Getty Villa in the early 1970s.

An actual papyrus page from an ancient Book of the Dead (Late Period to Ptolemaic, circa 664-30 BC), from a chapter between 64-129, should command $12,000-$20,000. The 36 inch long by 11 inch tall page boasts lovely vignettes. At the center is a Kheper (scarab beetle), with the wings, feet and tail of a falcon, surmounted by a solar disc. The page is housed in a rectangular frame.

The lovely Roman marble head of a woman from the Julio-Claudian Period (circa early 1st century BC), attached to a contemporary marble base and with an overall height of 15 ¾ inches, has an estimate of $9,000-$12,000. The bust could be that of Empress Livia Drusilla, the wife of Augustus, mother of Tiberius, grandmother of Claudius and the great-grandmother of Caligula.

A wonderful Etruscan female votive head from the 4th century BC, 9 ¼ inches in height, should garner $7,000-$15,000. The head boasts extremely well-defined and stylish features; she’s wearing earrings and her hair is styled back in waves below a diadem and rolled at the nape of the neck. It’s a superior example of the Etruscan’s mastery of the arts, on a custom wood base.

A marvelous ancient Greek Lucanian red-figure skyphos (deep, cup-shaped vessel with a pair of horizontal handles to the rim and having deeply vertical sides), possibly from the Intermediate Group (circa 400-375 BC), has a pre-sale estimate of $6,000-$9,000. The 7-inch-tall skyphos is nicely painted with a woman in a dress on one side apparently chasing a young man on the other.

A large Byzantine double-spouted bronze lamp on a flared pedestal foot, from circa the 6th or 7th century AD, 9 ¾ inches tall, is expected to finish at $10,000-$15,000. The body is elegant and rounded, having long nozzles with flaring tips. A lion and a panther adorn the nozzles, each flanked by suspension loops. It’s a lovely lamp, with well-preserved brown patinated surfaces.

A rare and remarkably well-preserved fossil skull of a wild boar from South Central Europe, dating back circa 8,500-16,500 years, to the Late Pleistocene or Mesolithic period, is expected to bring $15,000-$25,000. The 12 ¼ inch long skull and lower jaw are in impeccable condition. The jaw retains all its molars and pre-molars, the original tusks and three of the original six incisors.

An exceedingly rare Taino wooden zemi (sculptural object said to house a spirit), circa 1000-1500 AD, fashioned from lignum vitae (a member of the creosote tree family and thus resistant to decay and insects), has an estimate of $1,200-$1,800. This may be the only wooden zemi known. The gaping mouth suggests a tribute to Yucahu, the primary god of growing and fertility.

In addition to live and internet bidding, phone and absentee bids will be accepted. When bidding this way, a 19.5 percent buyer’s premium will apply, versus a 24.5 percent when bidding online via LiveAuctioneers.com or Invaluable.com, and 20 percent via the Ancient Resource Auctions bidding platform and app. Previews are by appointment only; to schedule one call 818-425-9633.

Solo: A Celebration of Women on Their Own

An Intimate Look at Single Women Today

“Kathleen’s presentation takes marketers beyond the data and stats into the psychographics at the heart of today’s moms and women.”

— Nan McCann, M2Moms® Producer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In her opening day presentation at M2Moms®, portrait photographer and author Kathleen Fitzgerald will remind brand marketing executives that being single is often the choice of today’s women. M2Moms®-The Marketing to Moms Conference, will be held October 16 & 17, 2019, in Fordham University’s NYC Lincoln Center campus. Using portraits from her new book "Solo: A Celebration of Women on Their Own", to illustrate her presentation, Fitzgerald will point out the 2016 U.S. Census Bureau reported that 53.2% of women 18 and older were single. Plus, in the US, single moms have become the new norm. M2Moms® is presented by The Center for Positive Marketing at Fordham University. It is attended by national and global brand marketing executives who attend to learn how to build more business with women and moms.

A Portrait of Single Women
“Audiences are captivated by Kathleen’s presentations on women’s issues. She introduced her first book "Divas Dame & Dolls" at the first M2W®. conference. One attendee was so taken by her work that she commissioned Kathleen to shoot female athletes at the National Senior Games for what turned out to be her second book "Soaring Spirts", “according to Nan McCann, M2Moms® producer. “Her new book reveals the “single” phenomenon from the artist’s perspective …sharing their compelling photographic portraits and unique stories. It is a collection of women living on their own. Some have never married; others are divorced or widowed. Their stories remind us of women we know. They range in age from their 30’s to 90’s and come from across the country. As diverse as they are in ethnicity, culture, education, spiritual beliefs and socio-economic standing, one common trait is women’s ability to tackle unforeseen situations with tenacity, strength, and resilience.”

2019 Highlights:
“Kathleen’s presentation takes marketers beyond the data and stats into the psychographics at the heart of today’s moms and women. This year’s sessions also include an in-depth look at the moms market in China. It absolutely dwarfs the US market. Every year 17 million new babies are born in China versus only 4 million new US babies,” McCann added. “We’ll also be especially focusing on tech with segments on how moms and women are using every screen at their disposal to network, search, get advice, recommend, shop & buy. The tech sessions & media discussions will be presented by Google, Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare, JetBlack, Instagram and Edison Research. Additionally, we’ll study how “smart” innovation is changing the home environment. Plus, we’ll examine how intergenerational marketing has become a key component of marketing to moms and women. But, probably our most timely new presentations will look at the very real differences between millennial moms and women and the massive emerging cohort of Gen Z moms and women!”

Creative Engagement & Awards:
“It’s not all work, to stimulate everyone’s creative juices we’re introducing our first ever female targeted startup “Shark Tank” featuring quick elevator pitches with a cash prize to the winner voted by the audience. Plus, in keeping with our annual traditions we’ll present our “Mom First” & “This Woman Means Business” Awards. The “Mom First” Award is given to a mom who saw and successfully pursued a business opportunity she discovered while being a mom. The “This Women Means Business” Award is presented to a proven business leader… an innovator and visionary…who in words and actions recognizes that women can be a transforming economic force in the world today…that for every successful enterprise, women mean business.”

Eliseo Delgado Explains the Growing Concern Over Facial Recognition Technology

RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reporting on a range of trending tech topics, Eliseo Delgado distills the complicated jargon of tech products and news into layman’s terms for his online audience. Here, he helps readers understand the conversation around facial recognition and why companies and citizens are voicing their concern over the fast-growing technology.

Shows like Black Mirror and movies like Minority Report show us the darker side of facial recognition, but regular citizens are beginning to publicly voice their concerns over the tech, too. With the growing use of user-friendly facial recognition apps and programs, Eliseo Delgado––like many others––worries that we’re fast approaching dystopian-like times.

“There’s a famous caveat about science and technology, that we tend to create things faster than we can understand them and their implications,” explains Eliseo Delgado. “Right now, smartphone owners use seemingly innocent facial recognition apps for fun, such as FaceApp, but don’t understand how this puts us on track for disaster.”

Implementing facial recognition into widespread applications, programs, and products is the first step to bigger powers seizing ownership of the technology, Eliseo Delgado claims. He, like others who keep up-to-date with artificial intelligence conversations, worry that government and other big agencies might swoop in to claim the technology and put it to their own purposes.

“This could mean crippling things in terms of law enforcement and obstruction of freedom for citizens around the world,” says Eliseo Delgado.

One emerging technology analyzes surveillance videos to determine who appears in uploaded videos (like Facebook’s facial recognition algorithms) and what kind of behavior they will display based on facial expressions. This scares many as it means computer systems––without any kind of human bias––will target certain expressions as dangerous or indicative of bad behavior. From this, the technology could be used to alert law enforcement who would seek to intervene based on the program’s instruction.

As more people begin to worry about their privacy being abused––position tracking through smart phone applications, hacked computer cameras, etc.––the topic of facial recognition is beginning to come up a lot more.

“People wonder if their faces will be tracked whether they enter a shopping mall, a gas station, or even another person’s home,” says Eliseo Delgado. “It starts with simple smartphone apps and could lead to bigger and more threatening applications if backed by certain powers.”

In the past, data breaches have cost ordinary citizens millions and millions of dollars. Because we can use facial recognition to unlock our smartphones and access bank apps, it’s possible hacked images or facial recognition files will lead to even more dangerous data breaches in the future.

“We have to recognize the signs now and back off on implementing facial recognition so heavily until we have proper parameters in place,” says Eliseo Delgado. “Otherwise, we’ve arrived at the dystopian future we’ve been warned against all along.”

Gasper Guarrasi explains work of Storm Water Systems

Entrepreneur and CEO Gasper Guarrasi reveals more about the work of California's Storm Water Systems.

NEWPORT BEACH , CALIFORNIA, USA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Storm Water Systems CEO and serial entrepreneur Gasper Guarrasi explains more about the Californian environmental services firm's work as the company announces free site evaluations for clients in industries ranging from chemical manufacturing and scrap recycling to freight transportation and food preparation.

"As California's leading provider of advanced best management practices for storm water compliance and management, we're able to help clients write their legally required action plans, and then implement them," explains Gasper Guarrasi, CEO of the environmental firm, headquartered in the Los Angeles County city of Carson. In addition, Storm Water Systems today has a further, second office in Hayward, Alameda County, tailored to promptly serving clients in more northern parts of California.

Gasper Guarrasi is also CEO of Frog Environmental. Frog Environmental provides supplemental trusted consulting advice to over 1,000 clients across California, primarily surrounding storm water compliance. A serial entrepreneur and dedicated humanitarian, Guarrasi has long enjoyed a fast-paced, competitive lifestyle with his persistent focus, drive, and creativity to thank for many of his professional achievements, including as president of a $100 million company.

Turning focus back to Storm Water Systems, Guarrasi explains how the business is able to leverage the expertise of more than 20 qualified industrial storm water practitioners. These qualified individuals, he says, can help clients to improve compliance with federally required storm water regulations in California for storm water associated with industrial activities discharging into the waterways of the United States.

They're also able to provide a high degree of technical knowledge and industry-leading environmental experience, according to Guarrasi. "Our qualified industrial storm water practitioners ensure that clients' storm water needs are fully covered," he adds.

Boasting the very best technology available, Storm Water Systems offers consulting services, engineering services, maintenance services, and more. The company's consulting services include facility evaluations, as well as level 1 and level 2 reports.

Engineering services, meanwhile, cover the implementation of best management practice solutions while the company's maintenance team is on hand for preseason commissioning, qualifying rain event visits, postseason decommissioning, and the ongoing training of clients' personnel.

"Furthermore, to help new clients get started," adds Guarrasi, wrapping up, "we're extremely proud, at Storm Water Systems, to now offer complimentary site evaluations to companies, businesses, and other organizations in more than 40 industries across California."
