Tina Zaremba was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2019. Though she was in the early stages of the disease, Zaremba opted for a double mastectomy that summer prior to starting treatment, and has since gotten implants. She started chemotherapy in September and did eight rounds of treatment, followed by radiation in January 2020.  “What freaked me out the most was chemo. You always hear ‘cancer doesn’t kill, chemo does,’ and in the media and entertainment industry you always saw these horrific images,” said Zaremba. “The first four rounds were fairly short, an hour with the IV, while the last four rounds were long, about 4-5 hours. I...
    When President Trump’s medical team first appeared outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center for a press briefing last Saturday, the sight of those white coats was comforting to many people. With the president checked into the hospital, diagnosed with COVID-19 and experiencing symptoms, his doctors were our only source of reliable medical information. Most of us, when afflicted with health issues, cherish a zone of privacy, but the president is different. A president’s medical condition is not only a matter of public interest. It’s a matter of national security, capable of shifting global markets. So, on the question of how much to tell the public about the president’s condition, history would recommend transparency. VideoThis transparency has been the standard since the Eisenhower presidency, with the exception of John F. Kennedy, who hid his Addison’s Disease from the public. Eisenhower was very sensitive about being forthright with the American people because...
    WASHINGTON — First Lady Melania Trump provided an update on her health on Monday, saying she is feeling good and continuing to rest at home days after testing positive for the coronavirus. “My family is grateful for all of the prayers & support! I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home,” the 50-year-old wrote in a tweet. “Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus,” she went on. The first lady has been quarantining in the White House residence after she and President Trump were diagnosed with the illness on Thursday evening and began experiencing symptoms. The commander-in-chief, who is aged 74, was taken to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday afternoon as a precaution by his doctors. Trump has been providing video updates on his condition from the...
    Brendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty Images Three days after the news broke that the coronavirus was sweeping through the White House, infecting President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and a growing list of Trump campaign and White House staff, the White House Management Office finally sent out a message to their staff, with instructions regarding what to do and who to contact if they developed Covid-19 symptoms. Maggie Haberman of the New York Times originally broke the story, tweeting that a source had informed her that the “first WH campus-wide staff note” since Trump had gotten sick had gone out on Sunday. According to a source, the first WH campus-wide staff note went out tonight since POTUS got sick, reminding people who think they’re sick to stay home – and suggesting if people think they should be teleworking, to consult their supervisor. — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) October 5, 2020 New York...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden tested negative for the coronavirus again on Sunday, his campaign announced. It was his second negative result in two days and came less than a week after his Minnesota debate with President Donald Trump, who early Friday revealed his own COVID-19 diagnosis.
    Nicholas Luna (pictured), President Donald Trump's 'body man,' is the latest White House staffer to contract COVID-19 Donald Trump's 'body man', whose job description includes accompanying him at all times, tested positive for coronavirus this weekend after traveling with the president several times recently. Three people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg of Nicholas Luna's diagnosis Saturday night as pictures also show the head of Oval Office Operations traveled with Hope Hicks Wednesday – just hours before she received her positive test. Luna is just the latest in a string of Trump's inner circle who have tested positive for coronavirus this week. It appears the initial event that could have caused the outbreak is the Rose Garden event last Saturday where Trump announced Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee for the Supreme Court. Overnight Thursday, Trump announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. Among those who attended the White...
    There has been no shortage of leftist celebrities and pundits celebrating President Donald Trump being diagnosed with COVID-19. The usual cast of Trump-hating characters gleefully rejoiced in the president testing positive for the deadly coronavirus, including Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Kimmel, Bette Midler, and Rob Reiner. But being overjoyed that Trump tested positive isn't only for the rich and famous, Democratic voters were also cheering that the commander-in-chief contracted coronavirus. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll of over 900 American registered voters found that 40% of Democrats were "somewhat" or "very" "happy" when they found out that the president tested positive for COVID-19. There were 31% of Democrats who were "somewhat" or "very" "excited" to hear about Trump's coronavirus diagnosis. There were 41% of Dems who were "indifferent" to the news of the president contracting the disease. Republicans had a far more empathetic reaction to the news, with 55%...
    The briefing by Donald Trump's doctors outside Walter Reed left many questions unanswered about the president's treatment and sparked confusion over the timeline in his treatment for COVID-19.  DailyMail.com has answered some of those pressing questions. WHEN PRECISELY WAS HE DIAGNOSED WITH COVID-19?   We now have had three different versions of when Trump was diagnosed from the White House, ranging from Wednesday morning to Friday at 1am. The White House has also not said what 'diagnosed' means – it could mean spotting clinical symptoms or testing positive. The White House first announced Donald Trump’s positive test result – and that of the first lady – at 1am EST on Friday morning.  But Dr. Sean Conley, Trump's personal physician, said on Saturday morning just before midday that the president was '72 hours into the diagnosis'.  That's hours before he flew to Minnesota for an indoors fundraiser and outdoors rally in Duluth,...
    President Donald Trump’s medical team announced the president is 'doing well' but muddled the timeline of his diagnosis and treatment in a vague health update. At the Saturday morning press conference Dr. Sean Conley, Trump’s personal physician, said the president is '72 hours into the diagnosis', indicating Trump could have tested positive as early as Wednesday, before walking back on his comment hours later. The White House released a statement later saying he misspoke and meant Trump was on day three of his diagnosis.  If he was 72 hours into his diagnosis, that would mean Trump was positive a day after the presidential debate with Joe Biden and positive during a Minnesota rally Wednesday and a fundraising event in New Jersey attended by 100 people Thursday.    Here are the crucial questions regarding Trump's health: President Donald Trump’s medical team announced the president is 'doing well' but muddled the timeline...

    While Apple has touted the Apple Watch's heart-monitoring feature, experts say it may be sending users to the doctor unnecessarily. A new study finds that only about 10 percent of Apple Watch owners who went to a doctor after being alerted of an abnormal heart rate were diagnosed with a condition.   False positives saddle consumers with unnecessarily medical bills, researchers said, and can overtax healthcare systems. The watches may also lead people to ignore legitimate symptoms, like dizziness or shortness of breath, because they haven't received an alert.  Scroll down for video  Since the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018, the popular wearable has allowed users to perform an electrocardiogram and receive alerts if their heart rate is abnormal In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, researchers at the Mayo Clinic analyzed patient records for mentions of the term 'Apple...

    Chris Rock was diagnosed with a learning disorder earlier this year, which makes it difficult for him to pick up on non-verbal signals. It’s something that Rock says may have led to his divorce from ex-wife Malaak Compton in 2016 after 20 years of marriage. The 55-year-old comedian told The Hollywood Reporter that after lengthy testing, doctors diagnosed Rock with a condition called non-verbal learning disorder, or NVLD. Rock explained that he has difficulty with non-verbal signals which make up about 80 percent of communication. “By the way, all of those things are really great for writing jokes — they’re just not great for one-on-one relationships,” he said. “And I’d always just chalked it up to being famous,” he continued. “Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I’d think, ‘Whatever, they’re responding to something that has to do with who they think I am.’ Now,...

    Washington, DC (CNN)Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer.Ginsburg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009, and earlier this year, she announced a recurrence of the cancer, having discovered lesions on her liver. The deadly disease has now taken two of America's political icons, including the late US Democratic Representative John Lewis, in the last three months, and thousands more Americans as one of the deadlier cancers in the country. There are two types of pancreatic cancer: exocrine tumors and endocrine tumors. There are currently no general screening tools for pancreatic cancer, and there are often no symptoms in the early stages, when the tumor would be most treatable. The cancer is often discovered at more advanced stages, sometimes when it has spread to other organs, known as metastasis. As people age, the risk of developing pancreatic cancer goes up.

    Wearing eyeglasses daily may reduce the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus, a new study suggests.  Researchers from China found that COVID-19 patients were five times less likely to have frames than the general population.  The team, from The Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, says they believe this is because ACE-2 receptors, which the virus latches onto to enter and infect human cells, can be found in the eyes.  The findings also provide more evidence for why healthcare workers should wear eye protection and why more attention needs to be focused on preventive measures such as frequently wash their hands and avoid touching their face.  A new study found that 5.8% of nearly 300 coronavirus patients wore eyeglasses eight hours a day for nearsightedness compared to 31.5% of people in the Hubei province.
