All In for Miller made a $25,000 pledge in 2020 to start the All In for Miller Fund, which provides support to pediatric cancer families with priority given to pediatric immunotherapy families. All In for Miller was founded by Alanda and Joe Grover in honor of their son who lost his battle with cancer in April of 2017. Today, Alanda and Joe along with the AIFM board members, came to present the check to the pediatric immunotherapy team at the Children's Hospital of Georgia. We are so grateful for their donation and we know this money will help more families and patients at CHOG who are receiving treatment. If you would like to learn more about the All In for Miller foundation and to donate please visit their website at www.allinformiller.org

This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and we want to honor our amazing and strong patients who are battling cancer.

Meet Bailey!
"In the beginning we had a very difficult time figuring out why I was so sick. Then after visiting the emergency room and then having emergency brain surgery, I was diagnosed with Group three Medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer, on November 19, 2015. Once I was accepted into St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, I began treatment. They started me on the SJMB12 trial. That treatment began with a second brain surgery followed by 30 days of radiation and then seven months of chemo. Three months after being declared NED (no evidence of disease) I relapsed. At that time, St. Jude had no trials for relapse. They offered palliative chemo but we chose to try and find another trial for relapse patients. Through Facebook, where my mom discovered a post regarding Dr. Theodore Johnson’s trial for relapse patients such as myself, we were able to contact him. In my particular case no tumor was found on my MRI. My St. Jude doctors somehow found one cluster of cells in a routine lumbar puncture that landed me in the relapse group. Personally I was not willing to take palliative chemo. Therefore, because of Dr. Johnson’s trial I was given a choice to be treated and maintain a high quality of life. I was on Dr. Johnson’s trial for two and half years and not knowing what could happen throughout a relapse trial is pretty tough but because of Dr. Johnson and everyone on his team, I am still here and enjoying a high quality of life."

Cassie brought home the silver in the Women's club throw F51 and also beat her previous Olympic record in Rio.

This month is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month so the Georgia Cancer Center is providing you with facts on this type of cancer. Today we are talking about the symptoms of thyroid cancer.

Thyroid cancer typically doesn't cause any signs or symptoms early in the disease. As thyroid cancer grows, it may cause: a lump (nodule) that can be felt through the skin on your neck, changes to your voice, including increasing hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, pain in your neck and throat, or swollen lymph nodes in your neck.

This month is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month so the Georgia Cancer Center is providing you with facts on this type of cancer. Today we are talking about what thyroid cancer is.

Thyroid cancer occurs in the cells of the thyroid — a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Your thyroid produces hormones that regulate your heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Thyroid cancer might not cause any symptoms at first. But as it grows, it can cause pain and swelling in your neck. Several types of thyroid cancer exist. Some grow very slowly and others can be very aggressive. Most cases of thyroid cancer can be cured with treatment. Thyroid cancer rates seem to be increasing. Some doctors think this is because new technology is allowing them to find small thyroid cancers that may not have been found in the past.

Brave the Shave is going virtual this year. Brave the shave for a child with cancer by raising money and shaving your head in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month in September.

Out of an abundance of caution, we will no longer be holding an in-person Brave the Shave event. Instead, participants are asked to shave their heads during the week of August 30 through September 3 and take before and after pictures and/or a video that we can share on the Children’s Hospital of Georgia’s social media channels throughout September.

Cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 15. According to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, approximately 15,780 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. In honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Children’s Hospital of Georgia shows its commitment to pediatric cancer patients by hosting our annual Brave the Shave event.

As we continue to face uncertainty caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever the hospital needs your help.

Sign up to Brave the Shave or give today to support the Children's Hospital of Georgia here https://go.augusta.edu/2Kqmmpw.

The Georgia Cancer Center is celebrating our 1,000th bone marrow transplant since the start of the program in 1997. Lauren Jackson became the 1,000th patient to receive this treatment.

Larry Adkinson (Husband) donated 44 wigs worn by his wife, Helena, during her battle with breast cancer. She experienced three major recurrences of the cancer during her lifetime and died in May 2020 at the age of 63. Larry and his son, Denton Adkinson, donated those 44 wigs to Sherry Brooks at the Image Boutique this afternoon to honor Helena. Sherry will clean and sanitize the wigs and then offer them to women who are not able to afford a wig on their own or through their insurance plan. We want to thank the Adkinson family for their kind donation.
