Living Fully: Roxane’s Inspirational Goodbye

Roxane has been on a nine month journey with pancreatic cancer and now has only days or weeks to live. She explains why she chose to get aggressive treatment early on and later decided to stop treatment and transition to hospice. Roxane's story and optimistic outlook are uplifting because she is living every moment...while she's dying. Key Takeaways Use every living moment wisely. Even if you're getting aggressive treatment and have hope that cancer treatment will be successful, take advantage of all the time you have. Address the details that give you comfort and control; this will eventually decrease the burden on your family. Hospice is not something to be afraid of. Studies have shown that patients in hospice actually live longer than those with a similar diagnosis who don't receive hospice care. Unfortunately, over 1/2 of all patients are only in hospice for 17 days or less because patients are referred so late in their illness.

Brought to you by: Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast Host: Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara Guest: Victor G. Chedid, M.D., M.S. On this episode of the RISE for Equity podcast, Victor G. Chedid, M.D., M.S., joins host Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara to explore the critical topic of Health Equity within the LGBTQ+ communities. Delving into the multifaceted dimensions of this issue, the discussion sheds light on the significant impact of healthcare and access for LGBTQ+ individuals, from confronting prevalent challenges to presenting actionable resources for patients and healthcare providers alike. Join us for an engaging dialogue poised to resonate with both professionals and patients alike, as we navigate the landscape of healthcare equity. Victor G.

Dr. Chedid has a subspecialty interest in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Learn more at Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.  “The point of the IBD Pride Clinic is to declare to the world that we have that safe space for you, and that we’re ready and welcoming and wanting you to come seek your care with us in a safe affirming space and we strive to keep your needs at the center of all our endeavors, just like the Mayo Clinic always says—the clinic’s value is the patient’s needs come first.” – Victor G. Chedid, M.D., M.S. “Creating affirming spaces for physicians is very important. Creating affirming spaces for medical students is very important. As a medical student, when you see somebody who's more senior than you, who belongs to the community, who's advocating, who is out and proud and is doing research in these fields or in LGBT health equity, you’d probably think “I can be that person.” – Victor G. Chedid, M.D., M.S.

Can I Protect Myself From Breast Cancer? (with Liz O’Riordan, MD)

What happens when you turn 40 (and you also have boobs)? Well, since May 2023, the USPSTF has recommended that women at average risk for breast cancer start screening with mammograms beginning at age 40, and undergo mammography every other year.  These updated recommendations are still “in progress” and the USPSTF cites the urgent need for more research on:  breast cancer screening for people with dense breasts (nearly half of all women),  how to particularly protect women of color In the US, there exists a long history of health disparities across screening and treatment for breast cancer.  The Task Force discusses, for example, that Black women are 40% more likely to die than White women, and too often get aggressive cancers at young ages.  So, Your Doctor Friends are taking a page from America’s Sweetheart (and breast cancer survivor herself) Katie Couric. You may remember Katie both underwent a colonoscopy AND a mammogram on the Today Show, and YDF Julie wants to do the next best thing- consult with a breast cancer expert before she gets her FIRST EVER MAMMOGRAM! Your Doctor Friends have the absolute honor to present our guest today, a consummate badass, breast cancer survivor and breast surgeon, to walk Julie through her own personal risk assessment and screening process for breast cancer.  Finally, we want to take some time at the end of this episode to share the story of a dear friend and colleague, a fellow sports medicine doctor, and absolute amazing human being, who very recently lost her life to breast cancer. She is the inspiration for this episode and Your Doctor Friends think it’s important to talk about her, and are so grateful to her family for their consent to share her story.  Learn more about Dr. Kristin Abbott here. Alright, let’s get on with it, can we answer the question: Can I protect myself from breast cancer? ENTER Dr. Liz O’Riordan to help us find out! Dr O'Riordan is an expert breast surgeon who has had breast cancer three times. She's a best-selling author, speaker, broadcaster and podcaster and is a trusted source of reliable information.  She shares helpful, approachable, valid breast cancer information online, we found her via her IG account @oriordanliz, she also has a podcast called “So Now I’ve Got Breast Cancer”, and she’s published tons of helpful work, including her book “The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer” and her memoir “Under the Knife”. She also has her own wikipedia page, which is pretty rad :) Resources for today's episode include: Dr. O'Riordan's website. Link to the Tyrer-Cuzick Risk Assessment Calculator for breast cancer. The USPSTF's "In Progress" updated guidelines for breast cancer screening. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's info page on updated USPSTF Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines.

Black Maternal Health Week: Stories of Survival

When Marian Dancy speaks, her story resonates with an urgency that commands attention. It's a tale that is all too familiar, yet still desperately needs to be heard: a stark illustration of why self-advocacy is not just important, but potentially life-saving in Black maternal health. On Beyond Clinical Walls, we open our hearts to the powerful narratives of Marian, and Leslie Jordan who, with harrowing clarity, recounts her own experience with pain mismanagement. Together, these women's voices form a symphony of strength, drawing a spotlight on the pressing need to address the healthcare disparities that leave Black mothers at risk.As we navigate through these deeply personal and eye-opening accounts, we uncover the nuanced relationship between a patient's composure and the perception of pain in the healthcare setting. The humbling journey Leslie shares, marked by a near-loss of life, reveals the stark consequences of cultural insensitivity and the importance of recognizing and validating pain in all its forms. Their stories are not isolated incidents; rather, they are part of a broader conversation that extends well beyond Black Maternal Health Week. This episode is a testament to the power of vulnerability, patient education, and relentless advocacy in the fight for equitable healthcare.Wrapping up this episode, we reflect on resilience, gratitude, and the profound realization that our struggles do not define our worth. I, Dr. BCW, invite you to carry the empowering messages from Marian and Leslie with you—let them be a beacon of hope in challenging times. Thank you for joining us on this journey, where the shared experiences of our guests remind us of our shared humanity and the critical need for change in the narrative of Black maternal health.Thank you for Listening to Beyond Clinical Walls Podcast.To find more from Dr. BCW YouTube: Instagram: TikTok: Twitter:
