Did Angelina Jolie Follow the Samadi Challenge to Prevent Breast, Ovarian Cancer?

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Today, Angelina Jolie announced her decision to have major surgery, removing her ovaries, after doctors detected signs of early cancer this month. Did Angelina Jolie follow Dr. David Samadis Samadi Challenge?

As a urologic oncologist, I commend Angelina Jolie for taking control of her life and quality of life. It is up to every man and woman to understand their risk factors and make a personal choice about prevention.

The Samadi Challenge stresses the importance of early prevention, knowledge of risk factors and annual screenings related to cancer in both men and women, despite US Task Force & Preventive Services Guidelines for common diseases like breast and prostate cancer.

While the US Task Force Guidelines change frequently, individuals must take control of their own lives. Cancer is a moving target. Your life is valuable. Only you can prevent it. Know your risk factors, said Dr. Samadi.

Samadi Challenge: A Checklist for Cancer Prevention & Awareness

-Learn your risk factors

Jolie recognized her aggressive family history of breast and ovarian cancer

-Improve your lifestyle and quality of life

Jolie decided for herself and her family, she would commit to early detection and prevention of these cancers common throughout her immediate family history

-Screen annually

Through a simple blood test, Jolie was aware she carried the BRCA 1 gene mutation for breast and ovarian cancer, which revealed an87% risk of breast cancer and 50% of ovarian cancer. She also chose to have the CA125 test for ovarian cancer.

-Treat aggressively

Jolie committed to having a double mastectomy and removal of her ovaries and Fallopian tubes due to her high risk of cancer. She decided to treat her risk factors aggressively, based on what the screenings presented to her. She chose a higher quality of life for herself, her children and her husband Brad Pitt.

Angeline Jolie followed the Samadi Challenge. She took control early on, understood her risk factors and decided she would fight for her quality of life. It was a personal choice for her and it is a personal choice for everyone.

Jolie declared in her New York Times Op-Ed:

“It is not easy to make these decisions. But it is possible to take control and tackle head-on any health issue. You can seek advice, learn about the options and make choices that are right for you. Knowledge is power. It is not possible to remove all risk, but the fact is, I remain prone to cancer. I will look for natural ways to strengthen my immune system. I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family. I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.’”

She went on to say, I want women to hear this. I did not just leap to the option of surgery because I carry the BRCA1 gene mutation. There is more than one way to deal with any health issue. The most important thing is to learn about the options and choose what is right for you personally.

Ovarian cancer is the third leading cause of cancer in women and public knowledge is centered around its occurrence in women 63 years or older. However with an aggressive family history, those statistics are not always concrete, stressing the fact that knowing your risk factors and screening annually is critical.

The fact is she has an aggressive family history of breast cancer which is directly linked to ovarian cancer as many studies have shown. She chose to recognize her family history as a risk factor and ensure her life would not end the same way. Her courage should be inspiring for not only women out there but also men, said Dr. Samadi.

Learn more about the Samadi Challenge on SamadiMD.com, WomenforProstateHealth.com and on Facebook: Women for Prostate Health.

Follow Dr. David Samadi on Facebook and Twitter.


Dr. Samadi is a board certified urologic oncologist trained in open and traditional and laparoscopic surgery and is an expert in robotic prostate surgery. He is Chairman of Urology, Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and Professor of Urology at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine. He is also part of the Fox News Medical A Team as a medical correspondent and the Chief Medical Correspondent for am970 in New York City. He has dedicated his distinguished career to the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer and is considered one of the most prominent surgeons in his field.

What I Should Have Said

Name: Annette
Location: Kuwait
I don't really believe that having regrets is helpful. I'm more of a peacemaker than a pot-stirrer. I only regret not addressing the issue when it could have been dealth with. The impact of not speaking up has impacted relationships and will probably continue to do so.
Best of luck, it's been lots of fun. I've loved having an opportunity to share my photos and thoughts. -AJHT

Theme - just want you to know....

I think we probably all have those moments when we wish we could have said.....(fill in the blank) to someone before we didn't see them again. Before we left that event. Before we parted. Before it ended....

If you could say it today - what would you say? 
" I just want you to know...." 
That's our theme this week as wrap up our project for the year. It's been a great 8 months. Life is calling us to other endeavors and we are going to take the journey and see where it leads us!
BUT not before say, "I just want you to know...."

What's In My Purse...no, really, what's in there?

Name: Annette
Location: Kuwait

Clockwise, from left: my favorite Fossil purse; a pile of receipts from the grocery store; underpants, shorts and wipes for my recently potty-trained son; a ribbon of unknown origin; Dramamine; my husband's necktie, my sunglasses and a wiper thing; a pouch with personal items; lipsticks; chapsticks; eyedrops (it gets dusty here); a pen that I can NEVER find when I need; a handful of photos of family; a tiny green truck; my phone (ok, that's just the case, I used the phone to take this photo); a bundle of business cards from the doctor's office, my husband's office and my eldest son's school; the brown and purple wallet that I don't really love but haven't gotten around to replacing; several photo id cards (civil identity card, Kuwait driver's license, Idaho Driver's license (with an AWESOME picture), private medical insurance card, government medical insurance card);  Kuwaiti fils (the coins) and dinars (the notes). In the center you can see two sets of keys with my Ron Weasley Lego keychain (Weasley is our king!); a small piece of beach glass for my collection; a black bat ring from Halloween and a pink plastic ring from my daughter's bling collection; an inordinate amount of sanitzing hand wipes and hand sanitizer; two packs of TERRIBLE chewing gum that a cashier recently gave me as change when he didn't have any small coins; and a string of prize coupons from a local fun place and the cards from the same.
Not pictured: several handfuls of sand and crumbs, a wad of chewing gum in a piece of tissue, twenty-thousand smaller receipts, twenty-two thousand identity cards for the children and tissue (because no matter how many packs of tissue I put in, there is never any in my purse when my kids have got drippy noses.)

What's in My Purse {one never knows}


My bag is pretty much the family's, in that at least one of them is always asking:  "Hey, could you stick this in your purse?" It's normal to find my husband's phone, or keys, or the kids' favorite toys or lip gloss, or a dozen other items.

Today, I give you all a rare glimpse into said purse.  I know, exciting stuff I'm sure!  We have the following items:  wallet, bracelet 
{that I wore to work last Thursday}, Bath & Body Works Lotion, bobby pins, kids' nail polishes, BC Powder {it works!}, and more.  Plus, you may have noticed my new craft punch {arrow} or that I have a 10% off coupon for one of my favorite shops {Mindy Mae's Market}.  I even have a Littlest Pet Shop brochure, highlighted with all the pets my oldest would like {Wasn't that sweet of her....to make sure I knew, lol}  

So.....that's it for my purse.  What's in YOURS?

Theme - what's in my purse

Oh this is a fun one! As women we tend to carry purses. Some large some small. Sometimes they are jammed full of crazy stuff! And sometimes we just have a few items. We are going to spill the contents of our purses this week. It will be fun to see what they "reveal" about our day to day lives.

Nighttime - soap opera

Name: Audrey
Location: Curitiba, Brazil

                Carrossel is a mexican soap opera I watched (dubbed in Portuguese) when I was a kid in 1991 and that has been rewritten and retaped (with Brazilian actors now) by a Brazilian TV channel since last year. Now my daugther watches it every night and she loves it. It is about a loving teacher (professora Helena) that goes way beyond the classroom to teach good virtues to her kids in the most different, dramatic, fiction filled ways. Don't tell anyone but we cried when professora Helena left the school for a better paying job. Of course she returned to her old job about 10 chapters later...
                It really can be cute and I must admit I have learned to enjoy wathcing it again. It is on every night at 8:30 pm and she (we) can´t miss it. So, like every good Brazilian, our nighttimes include soap opera watching. But at least this is a 'good', decent one.

Something that is consistent around our house at nighttime is reading. We always read before bedtime. Regular trips to the library to get large stacks of books keeps it new and fun!
