We are pleased to launch our first virtual radiation oncology medical student clerkship at Stanford for period 11A starting 4/27/2020! With medical student currently unable to participate in live clerkships, we wanted to offer them this opportunity to continue with their education and get the word out to many more medical students who would otherwise not have the chance to learn about our wonderful radiation oncology. We are thankful to everyone participating as educators in this effort and are excited to offer this opportunity to showcase our department and field to Stanford medical students.

Culture Club BBQ

April 9 - The Culture Club along with John Valenton and his grill team members Bruce, Gary, Earl, and Nick, together known as Mac BBQ, hosted a barbecue in the back of the Cancer Center valet lot as a way to say "Thank you" to the frontline staff of the Emergency Room, Nuclear Medicine, and Radiation Oncology departments. This barbecue was made possible by a very generous donation of about $5000 worth of ribs and pork from Snake River Farms. Starting Wednesday evening at about 8 pm, his team set up and grilled through the night. At 9:30 am, a team of volunteers, led by Maddie Minneci, Paulina Gutkin, Jessica Frank, Richel Baclay, and JP Obeid, helped pack 200 to-go boxes of ribs, pulled pork, and macaroni and cheese, each with a special message of thanks to the frontline staff, load, and deliver to each department. In addition, John secured 100 face masks from Hedley and Bennett and distributed them to Rad Onc and Nuc Med. To the entire team, thank you all for this amazing and wonderful act of kindness to recognize our staff. This was truly going above and beyond to help everyone through these times. Special thanks to Maddie and Paulina for making the thank you notes and your overall support throughout.

Integrating genomic features for non-invasive early lung cancer detection

Congratulations Jacob Chabon, Emily Hamilton and Maximilian Diehn on the publication of their study “Integrating genomic features for non-invasive early lung cancer detection” in Nature. Great job!
https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2140-0

Circulating tumour DNA in blood is analysed to identify genomic features that distinguish early-stage lung cancer patients from risk-matched controls, and these are integrated into a machine-learning method for blood-based lung cancer screening.

What a wonderful inauguration this was for the bell!

We are honored to have Gail Schauble be our inaugural My Blue Dots Bell ringer and delighted to commemorate Gail's last radiation treatment with a ceremony. Gail’s quiet spirit and resilience has sustained her through this difficult time. Her positive attitude has been an inspiration to the staff at Stanford Radiation Oncology and My Blue Dots.

We salute Gail and her husband Rob and daughter Kristen, who have stood by and supported her throughout her rigorous treatment. Today, is a day for new beginnings. Sue McCollum, My Blue Dots founder, wrote a poem “I’m Moving On” to acknowledgement this special moment for all cancer patients as they embark on the next journey of their lives as Cancer Warriors.

I’m Moving On

This journey is now over
So I celebrate this day.
It took courage and the support of others
But I’m finished and on my way

So I’ll ring this bell to celebrate
That I am finally through.
I’ve fought the fight and am moving on
For there are new things I want to do.

We thank Gail, Rob, and Kristin as well as the everyone on the Stanford care team for making this inaugural My Blue Dots Bell ringing so special. We hope this new tradition for cancer patients will provide them inspirations as they complete their treatments. The My Blue Dots Bell ringing is one way we want to honor all patients and provide healing, hope, and health to all.

Thank you for the wonderful write-up!

Thank you for the wonderful write-up!

We're excited to share this special event with you and hope it inspires you.

Sue McCollum, My Blue Dots founder, recently attended the inaugural My Blue Dots Bell Ringing ceremony at Stanford Radiation Oncology. This is a new tradition at Stanford Hospital where all radiation oncology patients can experience at the end of their own cancer treatments. By ringing the My Blue Dots Bell, patients are signaling to their world, their family and themselves, they are done with their rigorous treatments. They are officially Cancer Warriors. The Bell Ringing is similar to a graduation ceremony or the ringing of the Nasdaq bell … it signifies the ending of a period of time. Dr. Quynh Le, head of Radiation Oncology, led the ceremony festivities and acknowledged this special moment for patients.

The Bell Ringing idea came from Sue’s own experience with cancer. At the end of her treatment, she wished there was a way to acknowledge this life changing experience but there was none. So, through a partnership with Stanford Radiation Oncology, the idea of the My Blue Dots Bell Ringing ceremony was born. At the inaugural bell ringing, Dr. Daniel Chang acknowledged the “bell ringing has different meanings for different people … a signal of accomplishments, a beacon of hope, a way of showing support to other patients, an appreciation to close ones, a way of letting the world know whey were here, or a signal they are moving on. We see it simply as an additional opportunity for those who want to end their treatment with a period or an exclamation point.”

The My Blue Dots community wants to acknowledge all Radiation Oncology patients as Cancer Warriors. We hope this Bell Ringing ceremony will inspire you and give you hope and courage as you embark on your next journey.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that on Friday, May 17, our department at CC Palo Alto introduced the end-of-treatment bell ringing ceremony for our patients, joining our network sites in South Bay, Pleasanton, and Turlock.
This ceremony is an option for patients to commemorate or celebrate the end of their treatments!
The bell ceremony has been incorporated into our My Blue Dots program with a new poem contributed by Sue McCollum entitled "I'm Moving On," which has been inscribed onto a plaque hanging next to it.

Congratulations to Dr. Michael Binkley, whose abstract on Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin's Lymphoma, an international collaboration, was accepted for an oral presentation at the ICML-15 (International Congress on Malignant Lymphoma) in Lugano, Switzerland.
This is the most important international meeting for lymphoma, held every two years in Lugano. Only 10% of abstracts were accepted for oral presentation. In addition, he received a travel award for this abstract!

This week is National Nurses Week, a time to celebrate and honor our nurses and nurse practitioners.
We would like to thank them for their hard work and dedication. The role they play is vital to our clinical services, and we would not be able to function as a clinical department without them. Each month, we receive dozens of comments from grateful patients acknowledging our nurses for their care, empathy, and support, thanking them for making the patient experience so positive and comforting.

Please join us in celebrating our nurses, and take a moment to thank them this week!

Congrats to Dr. Maximilian Diehn, who has been named co-leader of the Radiation Biology research program. The program was rated Exceptional by the NCI in the last submission of our Cancer Center Support Grant, and we look forward to Max’s ongoing contributions as a leader and scientist. Max will join Dr. Quynh Le as co-leader for the program.
