Man Filing a Lawsuit Against Starbucks For Potentially Burning His Genitals with Steaming Hot Tea

Tommy Piluyev, a 24 years old man is filing a lawsuit against Starbucks, the international coffee giant as a defect in their cups reportedly burnt this man’s genitals. The guy ordered hot tea at Starbucks which had a temperature of almost 100C but this tea was spilled due to the defect in the cap while he was sitting in his car. This incident took place in Roseville, California, making him suffer second-grade burns.

Tommy picked a take away order and while he was receiving his ordered tea, a sufficient amount of the tea leaked on his body while he was still seated in the car. His lawsuit explains the tremendous intensity of pain that he suffered that he eventually chooses to park his car nearby, take off his trousers, and see how the tea has burnt his genitals.

He calls this experience excruciating as getting naked and sex is extremely awkward and somehow painful for him after this incidence. The skin discoloration caused by the tea spill has affected his genitals as well as thighs, affecting his confidence.

The father of one is a resident of California who was immediately rushed to a hospital for the burns. The lawyers report that he had to spend 11 days in the hospital for getting his burns treated, learning to function normally.

This incident took place two years ago back in October 2018. Piluyev and his wife Liudmila Maftey are together in this lawsuit against Starbucks as well as the cup making company named “Pactiv Packaging” for the negligence charges along with the product liability charges.

Piluyev ordered two grande of the honey citrus mint teas from the Starbucks drive-thru located in the Roseville near Sacramento.

The lawsuit says that Piluyev experienced severe burnt injuries after the lid almost missed its seal and dislodged from the cup.  The tea was directly spilled on the hand of the Piluyev and burnt his hands, belly, and pelvis.

While his car was still in the drive-thru it wasn’t possible for him to rush out of the car so he rushed the car and stopped by the nearest parking lot.  The hospital where he went for getting the emergency care for blisters that showed up on his stomach, penis, thighs, scrotum, and peritoneum.

There are photos of him admitted to the hospital while receiving the treatment for the burnt wounds.

The lawsuit explains Piluyev to be suffering from the intravenous pain along with huge blisters that require intensive care. His condition made him dependent upon other people even for the smallest things including the personal grooming and cleaning as he was even unable to move his fingers.

After he was discharged from the hospital, his wife was taking care of him for five months, after which he was finally able to walk and take care of himself. Piluyev reports that his condition has made sex extremely painful for him and he doesn’t even feel confident about himself. He is also not able to do other things that he once enjoyed especially playing the piano after getting these second-degree burns.

 

 

Common Medicines that May Save from Lung Cancer

Aspirin, statins, and metformin are the three most common medicines but using them together may save people from lung cancer, according to a new study. The complete details of this study are published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology (JTO).

These three medicines that this study talks about are commonly available. Nearly 35 million people worldwide are using statins to regulate their cholesterol levels. More than 120 million people are using metformin to regulate their sugar levels and from 6 to 10 million people are on aspirin on an almost daily basis.

The purpose of this study was to check if these three medicines have any type of association with each other that may or may not be related to lung cancer. If this link is proven to be true, it may account to save people from lung cancer.

The data analyzed by this study was taken from The Korean National Health Insurance Services (KNHIS).  This is a Korean health care system which contains the record of millions of people.

Dong Wook Shin from the Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine (Seoul) is the first author and lead investigator of this study. According to Dr. Shin, there is no study that combines aspirin, statins, along with metformin, and analyzes using this trio to save people from lung cancer.

There are various types and stages of lung cancers and based on which stage a person is, planing their treatment plan brings little or high effect in their recovery. Nearly 80% of the cases are non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) include adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and large cell carcinoma as its sub-types.

The occurrence of lung cancer was determined with the help of a registered diagnostic code. All these three medicines are for cardiovascular conditions that could be closely linked with lung cancer and death caused by it. The research team grouped these participants into eight groups, on the basis of their usage for any of these three medicines.

Using aspirin, statins, and metformin together can reduce the chances of lung cancer and save millions of people. In a combination, there are high chances that the protective capacities of these medicines increase which helps to fight against cancer and beat death.

The results from their findings suggest that using aspirin, statins, and metformin can protect and save a person from lung diseases including cancer. Using aspirin and metformin together can prevent the cellular proliferation that takes place inside the lungs. It works by activating protein kinase via AMP which actually triggers the lipogenesis of the cancer cells.

Dr. Shin assumes that using all these medicines together can be involved in more than one biological procedure that may directly or indirectly involved in lung cancer.

Can a Healthy Diet Heal the Damages Caused by Obesity?

A new study highlights the relationship between obesity and its damages caused to the body. It relates it to a highly praised and healthy Mediterranean diet which may change the consequences for the body. The complete study results are published in the journal PLOS Medicine.

This research was conducted by Karl Michaëlsson and his colleagues from Uppsala University, Sweden. They found that high body mass was responsible for more than 4 million deaths worldwide back in 2015.

Nearly 2/3rd of deaths are caused by an underlying cardiovascular condition. There is plenty of evidence to explain how eating patterns can change the risk to the heart’s health and it is also linked with obesity.

The research team found that dietary patterns and death rates among people who were a part of the Swedish Mammography Cohort and Cohort of Swedish Men were related. They went through the details of 79,003 adult Swedish people who were assessed based on their diet that mainly contained fruits, veggies, olive oil, grains, and nuts. This information was analyzed based on certain factors such as age, activity level, nicotine habits, and socioeconomic conditions.

A follow up after 21 years showed that nearly 38% of these people have lost their lives. The group with the highest BMI ratio was at the highest risk and those with normal weight were eating healthy.

For the deaths caused by cardiovascular diseases, obesity is indeed a risk factor. But this risk was significantly reduced when these obese patients were following the Mediterranean diet. Despite having a higher BMI, their eating habits were saving them from death by cardiovascular diseases. Also, low BMI levels didn’t ensure a high risk of cardiovascular diseases and related deaths.

These details show that sticking to healthy diet options is not only helpful for weight management or weight reduction but it can also save people from death especially caused by cardiovascular diseases.

So if a person wants to lower his risk of dying out of any cardiovascular disease, he should pay attention to what he is eating. Not only it will improve his metabolism and immunity but also change how his body responds to a certain risk factor such as high cholesterol. With or without losing weight, he is more likely to reduce the risk of heart-related conditions.

The Mediterranean diet is a popular and healthy weight loss diet these days but it can be traced back to 1960. It is based on the dietary habits of people from Italy and Greece realizing that people from these areas are healthier than Americans and are at low risk of diseases. There are numerous studies that reveal that this diet can make a person lose weight and also prevent heart attacks, diabetes, strokes, and even early death.

There is no standard form of a Mediterranean diet. It is changeable and anyone can customize this diet as per his taste and preference.

For a basic idea, it emphasizes eating fresh veggies, fruits, and whole grains in addition to bread and legumes. Food like poultry, dairy, and eggs are to be eaten in moderation. People following the Mediterranean diet can eat red meat but only on rare occasions. Eating artificial sweeteners, refined grains, and processed foods is highly discouraged.

 

 

Motion Sickness can be Controlled with Visuospatial Training Exercises

The new study finds that visuospatial training exercises can help people who are often sick to travel. It suggests that these exercises can be a self-help method to avoid motion sickness, according to the research team from the University of Warwick. This team found the risk of motion sickness reduced by more than 50% during the driving simulator as well as actual driving on the road trial. These findings are now published in the journal  Applied Ergonomics (2020). 

It is normal to feel sick while traveling while a majority of the population is highly vulnerable to get sick during traveling. Motion sickness which is also called travel sickness is a condition in which people feel dizzy and nauseated during car and boat travel mostly.

Not only the actual travel people are also likely to experience motion sickness while playing games wearing the virtual reality headgears or when they are experiencing stimulator.

With so many vehicles on the road and increased traveling during the last few decades, it is apparent that people are bothered with travel sickness. But sometimes it doesn’t even involve real term traveling to experience these symptoms. People watching movies in cinemas or reading in a car can also experience some visual impairment and nausea which are highly undesirable. Only if this motion sickness could be controlled it may help to increase manpower and productivity by more than 508bi USD.

Taking an account of all these people affected by motion sickness, there is absolutely no significant research on how to control it. But the new study by the research team from the University of Warwick is finally able to present a better picture.

During this experiment, they checked the efficacy of the visuospatial training exercises and how it can potentially trick the brain to overcome the motion sickness. They found these exercises to be pretty much helpful.

All the participants in this study were asked to use the WMG 3xD simulator in stimulator trials or they were on a road on the passenger seat, in driving trials.

The baseline data on motion sickness was recorded before the first ride. After the trial, they were asked to fill a questionnaire explaining their symptoms. This questionnaire used standards like ‘fast motion sickness scale’ to evaluate the intensity of their symptoms. Many of them reported having nausea, abdominal discomfort, and others.

After the first trial ended, all the participants were asked to complete a set of certain visuospatial training exercises for the brain, using a paper and pen for 15 mins, daily. The training exercises that these participants followed included watching the different patterns of boxes to identify the real image and other similar tasks on identifying spatial patterns. This practice was followed up to two weeks after which the second trial was conducted.

In the second trial, all of the participants were analyzed for motion sickness again and they showed a 50% improvement in their symptoms which was a remarkable success. The travel sickness was 51% reduced in people who were a part of the stimulator trial and it was reduced by 58% in people who were an on-road trial.

The research team hopes that their finding can help people to feel comfortable during traveling. The vehicle making companies may also use these results to design user-friendly vehicles with minimum chances of motion sickness.

 

 

 

Teachers can Help Students to Come Out of the Childhood Traumas

Mental health is often ignored despite the fact that it affects millions of people every year. This year, the mental health crisis has further expanded especially after the COVID-19 lockdown period. But health experts believe, teachers can play a huge part to overcome stress and childhood traumas after the schools re-open.

A recent report reveals that the tele-counseling during March and July has been increased by 28% compared to the tele-counseling cases reported last year.

These figures are worrisome and they urge governments to pay attention to the mental health counseling on campus, implying that every school should have a certified practitioner to help the students.

The Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews shared last month that in addition to the certified practitioners, 1500 teachers will receive the necessary training. This project is a joint collaboration with Headspace with the sole purpose of finding and helping the students who are in desperate need. It will cover day to day stress, academic stress, family-related stress, and even childhood traumas too.

Such steps are vital especially after a major health pandemic like COVID-19.  There are possibilities that this pandemic related lockdown has increased the cases of violence in families, abuse, stress, and trauma. Without any adequate information on these things, it is hard to understand what a child may be feeling. That’s why the plan of training teachers to get over stress and childhood traumas was considered.

Training teachers and other staff members about how abuse, childhood trauma, and violence affects a person’s mind will help them to show a helpful response. Determining a helpful response otherwise seems challenging because of the changing behavior of children.

Health experts define childhood trauma is an experience that exposes a child to any stressful, unexpected, violent, and abusive situation where he feels most vulnerable to it. unlike most children, some children are more likely to experience it and the cases are growing every year.

As per general estimated nearly 8.9% of children become a victim of abuse, more than 8.6% of children experience sexual abuse, 8.7% fell prey to mental abuse and some 2.4% experience neglect. These rates may be higher in different parts of the world but there is one thing in common that these childhood traumas leave any child with unimaginable damage and loss.

Even without direct involvement, children may experience childhood trauma if they see their family members being violent, abusive or following any unusual behavior that is hard for them to absorb. It could be because of mental illness, social problems, relationship issues, pandemic, war, or even a natural disaster.

Considering this, the latest COVID-19 is causing a high increase in these traumatic experiences in almost all parts of the world. As per official information, about 1/3rd of the Australian population are suffering from extreme financial issues, and mainly for the women, this COVID-19 pandemic has brought stress, depression, abuse, and violence in a house.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Australia suggests that all schools should be ready to deal with stressed children. They have called this response to “trauma-informed.” It doesn’t mean that the school staff should get medical training and treat students with traumatic experiences. Rather it means that the teachers should be trained to understand the effects of abuse and trauma on children and how to identify a student who needs help.

Healthy Diet and Workout Maintains Weight of a Pregnant Mother and her Newborn Baby

A healthy diet and workout are linked with good health even without a pregnancy. But the new study, conducted by the Kings’ College (London), funded by the British Heart Foundation as well as Tommy’s charity presents the additional benefits of these two during pregnancy.

Antenatal diet and moderate physical activity are vital during pregnancy as they prevent maternal obesity and ensure healthy babies. These results were obtained from the UPBEAT trials from participants all over the UK.

All the participants were pregnant women who were provided with a specific type of healthy diet and workout regime. Their health outcomes were compared to other participants in a control group. This control group made absolutely no changes in their diet or exercise during this pregnancy.

The follow-up trial after three years of delivery revealed that babies born to the experimental group were healthier, active, and at low risk of certain diseases than children of control group mothers.

In particular, the resting heart rate of these healthy children was observed to be relatively lower. If this rate is higher, it is a typical precursor of hypertension as well as heart diseases.

The results also revealed that mothers who followed a healthy diet and workout during pregnancy were able to maintain their health and weight even after three years of delivery.

Kathryn Dalrymple is the principal investigator and first author of this study. According to her, this study presents a healthy diet and workout more of a lifestyle change for pregnant women. Instead of considering it as a ‘standard rule’, they should make it a part of their life. If completely followed, these things will ensure better health of the mother as well as the child even after years of delivery.

This study presents that pregnancy is not just the reproductive phase of a woman’s life. It determines her health of the coming years and just by following simple steps she can make sure there are no threats and risks in the coming years.

Lucilla Poston is the chairperson for Maternal and Fetal Health at Tommy’s. She says that obesity during the pregnancy is often ignored but it is one of the leading causes for long term dangers to the mother and the newborn child’s health. This study has only highlighted that managing obesity during pregnancy is not as difficult as it may sound.

 Lizzie D’Angelo the director of Research and Policy at Tommy’s calls pregnancy as a potential risk factor for the women who are already obese. However, it is possible to change it and lose weight even during pregnancy, without doing any shortcut or following any fad diet.

The researchers are trying to find new ways to help obese women during pregnancy. The results of this particular study are very reassuring and they suggest that taking care of the diet and physical activity during pregnancy can significantly improve the mother and the child’s health.

The research team plans to perform another follow-up study on these participants and their children after 10 years. Their purpose is to check if they are subjected to any health-related threat and how the cardiovascular system is keeping up as these children are growing up.

 

 

How Long-term Cannabis Use Benefits Patients in Pain? (New Study)

Despite the negative popularity of the cannabis plant, the research on finding its medical potential is on the rise. A new study on identifying the pain-relieving effect of cannabis has presented a different picture of this naturally healing plant, suggesting that cannabis has no effect on increasing pain sensitivity which is common in the case of common pain-relief medicines.

The study particularly talked about the no reduction in pain tolerance even after a long-term cannabis user. Michelle St. Pierre is a doctoral student at the University of British Columbia who has worked on analyzing pain sensitivity among cannabis users. The complete study findings are published in the journal “The Clinical Journal of Pain”.

The trend of using CBD-infused products especially for pain-relief can make any person wonder about the healing benefits of this plant. In general, people are more likely to invest in a product which is presented as a risk-free, cruelty-free, and natural. It explains why the alternative medicinal industry is blooming. However, it is not necessary for all these healing products to be as effective as medicines.

Despite being popular as an illegal or hallucinating plant, the cannabis plant has miraculous health benefits which make it the number one choice in almost all natural pain remedies and supplements for pain management.

There is plenty of data that suggests the use of cannabis plant and cannabis-based products among patients for pain relief. And some of them combine or prefer it over the common pain killers urging researchers to have a clear stance over the efficacy and results of these CBD products.

Considering the highly addictive properties of the cannabis plant, it is natural to have security concerns over using this plant or plant-based products. Typically, the problem with over the counter pain-relieving medicines is that after some time, they stop working or in other words, the human body develops tolerance against them. Now cannabis is an equally powerful plant that may also cause similar effects. In that case, the long-term use of cannabis for pain management would have been impossible. However, the study has brought the good news that cannabis users don’t experience any such problem even after years of using it.

Zach Walsh from the Therapeutic Recreational and Problematic Substance Use Lab at UBC is the co-researcher and second author of this study. According to him, these results indicating how pain sensitivity may change over the years with using opioids can easily worsen a person’s health which is already at risk. But finding these results is a relief that there is no such problem associated with the cannabinoids of the cannabis plant. This effect is somehow different from what is being reported by opioid users.

The opioid users are more likely to experience pain reactivity even after using these medicines for long. Cannabis and medicines somehow work the same and even their mode of action is the same. But somehow their response towards pain sensitivity is different.

Overall, this study concludes that frequent use of cannabis has no effect on increasing the pain sensitivity which people often fear. However, it doesn’t mean that a person can go beyond the safety limits recommended for using cannabis or CBD-infused products.

New Possibilities To Prevent Diabetic Eye Disease

The drastically increasing diabetic population worldwide is worrisome for health experts. Diabetes brings these people more to the risk of certain diseases such as diabetic eye disease. The retina specialists advise that if these diseases are detected at an early stage, it is possible to treat retinopathy which further reduces the risk of complete vision loss.

Diabetic eye disease or diabetic retinopathy is the most common eye-related medical condition in diabetic patients. It happens when the retina of the eyes is damaged in diabetic patients. When the blood sugar level gets higher, it blocks the blood vessels in the retina and damages it.

The retina is the inner part of each eye that senses light and sends signals to the brain to decode this light and hence help in vision creation. When the retina is damaged, nonfunctioning, or abnormally functioning blood vessels can cause vision problems.

Dr. Raba Thapa who is a retina specialist and works as an associate professor at Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology (TIO), says that all these patients who came to the Retinopathy Department, at least 50 of them were experiencing the diabetic retinopathy. In addition to this, she said that these patients only seek medical help when their vision is impaired.

But for the diabetic retinopathy, there are no as such symptoms which may predict it at an early stage. However, in later stages, it may appear as blurry vision, inflammation of the retina, and pain in the eyes. If this problem is diagnosed at an early level, it is possible to treat its potential complications which is why any person who suspects this required immediate medical care.

The risk of diabetes increase in people who are in their middle ages, live a sedentary life, and have almost no physical activity along with unhealthy dietary choices. Doctors recommend that all those who are diagnosed with diabetes should frequently get checked for retinal damage. Typically, a retina exam should take place once a year by any certified ophthalmologist.

Dr. Thapa works at Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, Nepal where she recently worked on a project titled;  “Integration of Diabetic Retinopathy Eye Care Services within Comprehensive Diabetes Management of General Public Health System in Nepal (2016-2019).”

During a meeting on this project’s presentation, it was discussed that this project has helped to design “national guidelines for the management of diabetic retinopathy in Nepal”.

Almost all leading health practitioners in the country were given the training to test diabetic people for retinopathy. As per an estimate, for this project, more than 20,000 persons were checked for diabetic retinopathy in different cities of Nepal.

The project also initiated awareness about diabetic retinopathy for common people as well as a medical practitioner. Furthermore, this project also distributed specialized medical equipment to health centers all across the country for diabetic eye disease or retinopathy diagnosis and treatment.

Nepal Health Research Council report ranks diabetes mellitus as number two among all non-communicable diseases (8.5 percent). It is second to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (11.7 percent) and together these two are two leading diseases that couldn’t be transmitted from one person to another, yet affect millions of people. Other examples of non-communicable diseases (NCD) include heart diseases, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc.

The research council further adds that people who are in their middle ages are at a higher risk of diabetes mellitus. Dr. Thapa shares that anemic patients or those with abnormal blood pressure or cholesterol along with smoking addiction and alcoholic habits are more likely to develop this condition. So everyone who falls under this category should get his eyes checked frequently.

 

 

Obesity in Women is a Bigger Risk factor for Dementia Than Diet and Exercise

Midlife obesity in women increases the chances of suffering from dementia in older ages, says a new study by the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.  Sarah Floud, from the Nuffield Department of Population Health at Oxford, is the lead researcher and first author of this study. She explains that obesity is a bigger risk factor for dementia than food and exercise, the commonly considered risk factors for dementia. These research findings are published in the journal “Neurology” and are available online to view.

Floud and her co-researchers referred a few previous studies that link low body mass index (BMI) with chances of being diagnosed with dementia in the next 5–10 years. Likewise, other studies also show a connection between poor diet and no physical activity with the risk of dementia. However, dementia is only one of many possible health problems as a result of these two factors.

Also read- Why Are Most Industry-funded Studies Unreliable?

In this current study, the preclinical stage showed gradual changes in behavior as well as mental impairment. They also linked recent meta-analyses that show a low BMI’s relation with dementia after a long period of time. It reveals that middle-age obesity has a clear link to dementia.

The research team studied 1,136,846 women from the U.K of average age 56 years between the years 1996 and 2001. At the time of this study, they were not diagnosed with dementia. They studied details of height, weight, daily calorie intake, a record of physical activity and observed them until 2017.  Meanwhile, visits to the hospital were also considered especially related to any chance of dementia. All these records were obtained via National Health Service records.

They considered a BMI of 20–24.9 as “normal and ” 25–29.9 as overweight. BMI over 30 was considered obese. Women who were exercising less than once a week were termed “inactive” and those who exercise at least one times in a week were declared “active”.

The link between this BMI and the risk of dementia was calculated by using the Cox regression models in the follow-up period that lasted till 2017.

During this period, approximately 89% of study participants did not mention dementia as a problem. In these 15 years of follow up, only 18,695 women were diagnosed with dementia. The details told that women who were obese when this study started were 21% more risk of having dementia than those who weren’t obese.  To be accurate, 2.2% of women from this study who were obese were likely to develop dementia in 17 years than those who had a healthy BMI.

Also read- How to Manage Depression During Coronavirus Pandemic

These findings open that low-calorie food intake and no exercise have some link with dementia but in comparison with obesity, this link is minimum. So obesity does play as a risk factor for dementia, especially in women.

Floud commented that previous studies suggest that a low calorie or poor diet along with no physical activity plays like risk factors for dementia but this new study finds that these factors can not predict dementia in the long term. The effect of diet and exercise with dementia is short term and it may progress the pre signs of dementia. However, the BMI of a patient has a direct link to being diagnosed with dementia in later years of life.

She further added that this study is only limited to women, for now, so it is difficult to say that the same applies to men or not. More detailed studies in this respect would describe obesity and dementia’s link in men.

Mother Claims she “Sniffed” to Identify a Rare Type of Cancer in her Daughter

A Mother from the UK shares how she was able to identify rare type of cancer called  Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia which is only identified by up to 650 people per year in the UK. But what’s more surprising is that the mother claims she ‘sniffed’ cancer on her daughter which sounds impossible especially in case of diagnosing a rare disease.

36 years old Sharon shares that she knew her 9 years old daughter was suffering from something unusual which is why sniffing gave her an idea that Kaiann McAllister has a rare type of cancer.  She has shared the photos of her little one which is heartbreaking as Kaiann is currently under chemotherapy which has made her lose all her hair, develop sores and blisters in the oral cavity and so many wounds on the body while she battles with this rare type of cancer.

Sharon lives in Scotland and has shared that her daughter was ill for months but what made her alert was a different type of smell which she found strange. She reports that she felt the same smell coming from another woman whom she attended and that woman was also a cancer patient. Sharon says that many people call her crazy for saying this but she can’t get this out of her mind which is why she decided to declare her experience in public.

Her daughter Kaiann was suffering from an extreme back pain which made her visit to a local doctor. She was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer after these hospital visits which left Sharon and her husband Mark devastated.

The couple is doing everything to help their little one in battling this deadly type of cancer. So far the little girl is fighting bravely and there are high chances that she will recover. Sharon says that her daughter is also experiencing the side effects of chemotherapy, she has lost all hair and also experiences a minor memory loss. she is having problems with speaking especially spellings which is highly unusual because she was good at this before.

Her daughter can not work and is bound to a wheelchair. But after the end of the treatment, she will be able to walk on her legs again. More than the physical pain she expressed that explaining this all to her daughter was even harder. She is too young to understand all this and was asking if she is dying. Although Shannon and her husband have no answers for their daughter’s questions she hopes there could be more that parents can do for their cancer hit children.

Kaiann can not eat anything because of the blisters and wounds in her mouth. Her bones are fractured and before she recovers completely, there is so much that needs to be healed in her tiny body. Shannon says that her little one’s whole body has scars and watching her like this is heartbreaking. She urges everyone to understand the value and reality of life, by showing the realities that she is dealing with. She also gives a message to donate more to the Childhood Cancer Research which is mainly focused to treat young cancer patients like Kaiann.
