Ottney: Eye on cancer">Ottney: Eye on cancer

February 28th, 2015 by Our Webmaster

By Sarah Ottney

.

This month’s Eye on Health special section focuses on cancer, which hits close to home as my younger sister is a recent cancer survivor.

.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 26 and newly married. With no history of breast cancer in our family, the news threw everyone for a loop — most of all her. Instead off heading off on a honeymoon, she embarked on a year and a half of radiation, chemotherapy and battles with insurance companies.
Everyone copes in different ways. My sister is a private person. She didn’t like to talk about her treatments. She said …read more

February 28th, 2015 by Our Webmaster

When David Clarkson matured as a player during his six seasons with the New Jersey Devils, he was a second- or third-line forward who saw second-unit power-play time, finished checks and, on occasion, dropped his gloves to fight. But the day he signed a seven-year, $36.75 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs — July 5, 2013 — Clarkson’s days as a “secondary” offensive player ended. …read more

At 36, Renee Schick found a lump in her breast during a self-examination. A doctor performed an ultrasound and discovered she had cancer.
In the wake of that diagnosis, she had a difficult time finding products and services that comforted her during her surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation.
“When I was diagnosed, I had drain tubes and I didn’t know where to put them,” Schick said. “But there are camisoles that have pockets that are billable to insurance that can hold the tubes for you. They even come with puffs for people who have had a mastectomy.”

Hooray for Hollywood: Oscar win for “Birdman” continues a trend.">Hooray for Hollywood: Oscar win for “Birdman” continues a trend.

February 27th, 2015 by Our Webmaster

By Jeff McGinnis

.

thoroughly enjoyed “Birdman.” It is a rare treat to find a film that so deftly swoops between the disparate tones of comedy, tragedy, surrealism and slapstick. I found the ending a bit of a letdown, as I felt there were a few loose ends both thematically and on a character level that the film didn’t even try to tie up. But on the whole, I found “Birdman” an excellent moviegoing experience.

I say this to establish that what I’m about to write doesn’t come from a place of bias against the movie because it won the Academy Award for Best …read more
