Photographer Lora Scantling has captured the girls every year since 2014
Each year, three childhood cancer survivors come together to take a picture, not just because they are friends, but to remind themselves — and the world — how strong they are.
In 2014, young Rylie, Rheann, and Ainsley — 3, 6, and 4 years old at the time, respectively — came together for a memorable photo shoot.
In March 2014, photographers Lora Scantling and Christy Goodger took a very special photo of three little girls from Oklahoma. Rheann Franklin, now 9, Ainsley Peters, now 7, and Rylie Hughey, now 6, were all hugging one another tightly with their eyes closed, showing support in their mutual fight against cancer.
The late British writer AA Gill was denied the drug last year as it was not yet approved by the National Health Service
A lung cancer drug which was denied to British food critic AA Gill has been approved for some patients with his type of cancer.
AA Gill died aged 62 last December after being diagnosed with what he proclaimed the ‘full English’ of cancers – lung cancer which has spread to his neck and pancreas with tumours that were inoperable and unsuitable for radiotherapy.
AA Gill had chemotherapy but could not access the immunotherapy drug nivolumab because it was not approved on the NHS.
Researchers find that common jet lag drug could prevent chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain (CINP)
A jet lag drug could be given to patients to ease the painful side-effects of cancer treatment, according to a study.
Researchers from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Aberdeen in the UK found that a drug — known as melatonin — appeared to prevent pain caused by chemotherapy damage to nerves by blocking the harmful effects on nerve health.
They focused on a common condition known as chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain (CINP), which causes tingling and pain sensation to touch and cold temperatures that can be severe enough to cause patients to limit their chemotherapy treatment.
Talk show host & celebrity Larry King has revealed that he was diagnosed with lung cancer 2 months ago.
Television star and host Larry King has revealed today that he has been treated for lung cancer.
The 83-year-old celebrity and host of Larry King Live on CNN was diagnosed during a routine annual check-up. When doctors X-rayed King’s chest, a small spot appeared on the scan.
Speaking to Us Weekly, King described: “they said to me the spot looked pretty small. I then did a CAT scan then a PET scan and then he [the doctor] said to me, ‘You have lung cancer, but it looks very small, in the beginning stages.’”
Former deputy prime minister of the UK Nick Clegg and his wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez appeared on television today, in an interview discussing their son Antonio’s experience with cancer. 15-year-old Antonio was diagnosed in September last year, and has completed several rounds of chemotherapy.
In his first interview since July, Sen. John McCain described his cancer as “vicious.”
Still, he says, he’s feeling confident. “I’m facing a challenge, but I’ve faced other challenges,” McCain told CNN.
McCain was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer – glioblastoma – in July. Doctors discovered a tumour while operating on a blood clot above McCain’s left eye. The blood clot and tumour were both removed.
