IPO Edge: Where is the organization going?

As we look to the rest of 2022 and beyond, we are focusing on three key areas:

  • Accelerate market share growth within our reconstruction and augmentation businesses

  • Become the leader in the reconstruction market

  • Transform Sientra into a comprehensive aesthetics company by providing an enhanced portfolio for plastic surgeons and improving the lives of patients.

IPO Edge: You were able to achieve 7 quarters of growth, what drove this growth?

The business also achieved margins by 60% due to increased sales and improved operational efficiency. Additionally, we are still on a solid path to break even by mid-2023.

IPO Edge: There are concerns about the US economy entering recession, how has your business fared in previous economic cycles? Is your business weathering the recession? Are you taking steps to prepare for a potential downturn?

While many industries experienced a decline in growth during COVID, we continued to grow. Today, even with concerns about the impact of a recession, we are still in a strong position, as demonstrated by our two-fold growth in market share and brand awareness and our 17% growth across the entire portfolio in the first quarter of 2022. There is still a lot of potential. to this share growth. Fortunately, we are also seeing hospitals returning to pre-pandemic volumes, which provides tailwinds to add more reconstruction accounts and grow market share in this important segment.

Given these advances and our continued operational efficiency, we believe we are well positioned for the months to come.

IPO Edge: Which new products will drive future growth?

Given our growth initiatives, our long-term strategic vision for Sientra is to continue to advance our current product offerings, while also expanding into new product categories such as non-breast and next-generation innovations, which will ultimately lead us to become a fully-fledged aesthetic company. company.

Our approach is simple, we do not seek to imitate the competition, but to solve an unmet need in the market and to overcome the status quo.

We have several launches planned for 2022 and 2023 that will strengthen our track record of differentiation. These include the recently launched Dermaspan with 6 tabs, and other upcoming products including Low Profile Plus implants, Allox2 Pro and our new Portfinder device.

Our newest addition to the Sientra family is in the area of ​​fat grafting, which will help us grow our portfolio as we grow into a fully-fledged aesthetics business. The addition of our newly acquired fat grafting technology will increase our US TAM by more than $130 million and allow us to provide a highly differentiated solution in this growing space. We are in the process of making enhancements to the system, leading to a full launch in Q1 2023. Our survey data validated our decision to invest in this system as customers seek better solutions.

IPO Edge: How do you ensure the safety of patients using your products?

Sientra offers next-generation implants with some of the lowest complication rates, which is demonstrated in our safety data and clinical results. Looking at our clinical data, our capsular contractures and ruptures, or implant leakage, the rates are significantly lower than our competitors, making our safety and clinical data unmatched in our industry. At Sientra, we have always prided ourselves on being transparent about our safety data and helping patients make an informed decision about their brand of breast implants. Not only do we provide safe and effective products, but we also back them with our 20 Platinum Guarantee, which covers some of the most common complications a patient might experience for 20 years.

Longtime “Days of Our Lives” viewers might recall that Carrie Brady (Christie Clark) is the daughter of Roman Brady (Josh Taylor) and Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) (via Soaps In Depth). However, Carrie built a strong bond with her stepmother, Marlena Evans, when she was a child. Carrie first met Austin Reed (then Patrick Muldoon) as a young adult in 1992 when he moved into the apartment next to hers. Austin was a young and fit boxer who instantly caught the eye of Carrie (via Soap Opera Digest).

It was later revealed that Austin is the brother of Billie Reed (Lisa Rinna) and the son of Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow). Carrie befriended Billie and the two women moved in together. Of course, that meant Carrie and Austin were seeing each other more often. As Carrie and Austin began dating and falling in love, his boxing career took a toll on their romance. While things were rocky, it wasn’t until Carrie suffered a horrific stroke and had acid thrown in her face that things turned sour for the couple, per Soaps in Depth.

At the time, Roman told Carrie that if she didn’t call things off with Austin, he would have to stop her. So she pushed Austin away, despite her love for him (via Soap Central). Meanwhile, Carrie’s sister, Sami Brady, had developed a huge crush on Austin and vowed to steal it from her big sister. When Carrie and Austin broke up, Sami wasted no time trying to win Austin’s heart.

Setting

This study was conducted at the Outpatient Clinic of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ramathibodi Hospital Faculty of Medicine, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand, between December 2020 and January 2021. The validation procedure included two phases: ( 1) translation and (2) testing of psychometric properties.

Translation of phase 1

The cross-cultural adaptation of the original English FGSIS into a Thai version was carried out according to the process of patient-reported outcome measures [18]. We began the translation process after obtaining written permission to use the FGSIS from the scale developer, Debra Herbenick.

  1. (1)

    Two Thai language translators experienced in translating health questionnaires independently performed the direct translation of the FGSIS into Thai.

  2. (2)

    An expert experienced in the Questionnaire Validation (CS) process compared and combined the two direct translations into a reconciled Thai version.

  3. (3)

    Two bilingual native English speakers, who had not seen the original version of the scale and were unaware of the purpose of the study, individually translated the reconciled Thai version into English.

  4. (4)

    The two reverse translations were then reviewed by two gynecologists (WK and AK), a nurse (SS) and the questionnaire validation expert (CS) to ensure the accuracy of the translation. Any misunderstandings or unclear expressions in the translated versions have been reviewed and revised to produce a final Thai version.

Phase 2 Psychometric Properties Test

The validity and reliability of the Thai FGSIS was assessed in a cross-sectional psychometric study of women attending a health check-up clinic during the study period. Based on voluntary and non-probability sampling method, eligible participants were recruited according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Eligible participants were sexually active women (who had had any type of sex at least once in the previous month) who wished to participate, were able to communicate fluently in Thai, and had provided written informed consent. Participants were excluded from the study if they withdrew or were unable to complete the questionnaire. No compensation of any kind has been provided.

The final version of the Thai FGSIS was assessed using the COnsensus-based Standards for the selection of health Measurement INstruments (COSMIN) methodology to assess the content validity of patient-reported outcome measures. [19]. The psychometric properties examined were content validity, face validity, internal consistency, construct validity, and test-retest reliability. The details of the stages of the psychometric tests are as follows.

  1. (1)

    Content validity (including face validity) was assessed using the COSMIN methodology [19]. The final version of the questionnaire was tested on a heterogeneous group of twenty lay Thai women. Participants were asked to complete the final version of the questionnaire and provide feedback on incomprehensible words, level of difficulty and cultural relevance of the translation. They could discuss any general or specific questions with the principal investigator (WK), who observed the volunteers completing the questionnaire and monitoring the pilot procedure. At the end, participants were briefly quizzed on the meaning of each item. At the same time, five obstetrician-gynecologists and a psychiatrist were asked to review the final draft questionnaire by a clinician. Additionally, levels of missing data were also measured and used as an indicator of inappropriate items. The results of the pilot tests were taken into account when producing the final version of the Thai FGSIS used in the study. Since the content validity of the original FGSIS questionnaire has been demonstrated previously [1]this study only tested the interpretability of the items in terms of questionnaire response time [19].

  2. (2)

    Internal consistency or reliability was assessed by examining correlations between questionnaire items. Cronbach’s alpha and item-total correlations were calculated to assess test item consistency.

  3. (3)

    We hypothesized that genital self-image is closely associated with sexual functioning. Therefore, we predicted that genital self-image scores would be positively and strongly correlated with sexual functioning scores. We compared FGSIS and FSFI scores to examine the construct validity of the Thai FGSIS. Convergent validity was used as evidence in support of construct validity.

  4. (4)

    Test-retest reliability is a measure of the stability of survey results. The stability of the Thai FGSIS was measured by administering the questionnaire to the same group of respondents, with an interval of 2 weeks between the first and the second test. All participants were invited to participate in the retest.

Instruments

The FGSIS was methodically developed and psychometric testing has shown the scale to have good validity and reliability [2, 3]. The FGSIS includes seven items that assess women’s feelings and beliefs about their own genitalia. The answers are on a decreasing scale of 4 points (strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree). Respondents’ scores for each item are added together to obtain a total score (range of 7 to 28). There is no end point; higher scores indicate a more positive genital self-image [1].

The FSFI is a self-report questionnaire developed to measure female sexual function over the previous 4 weeks. It consists of 19 elements that encompass six distinct domains: desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction and pain. Response scores range from 1 to 5; higher scores indicate better sexual functioning [12, 13]. The FSFI has been widely used and translated into several languages, including Thai [20].

Ethical considerations

The study was approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University (MURA 2020/1777). All participants signed an informed consent form before being enrolled in the study. Permission was obtained from the original FGSIS author to translate the scale into Thai. All methods were performed in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki for medical research involving human subjects.

statistical analyzes

The demographic and baseline characteristics of the study population were described as mean and standard deviation (SD) or number and percentage for categorical data. Content validity of the Thai FGSIS was assessed using the missing values ​​model, and internal consistency was determined using Cronbach’s alpha [21]. The convergent validity of the Thai-FGSIS was examined by Pearson correlations between the Thai-FGSIS total scores and six domains of sexual functioning and FSFI. Additionally, the factor structure was examined with confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and used to determine the construct validity of the Thai-FGSIS [22,23,24]. A series of CAs were performed to determine how well the model fit the observed data. The CFA was performed with a maximum likelihood estimate on the seven items of the questionnaire. A combination of fit indices was used to assess the overall fit of the model, including the chi-square (χ2) goodness-of-fit statistic, comparative fit index (CFI), Tucker-Lewis index (TLI), root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA), and standardized root mean square residual (SRMR). Test-retest reliability was assessed by comparing mean test-retest scores for each domain using intraclass correlation coefficients [25].

The test results were considered statistically significant at p<0.05. Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows, version 27.0 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY, USA) and Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS) 26.0.0 (IBM, SPSS Inc., USA) .

Sample size estimation

Satisfy the 10 recommended ratios of respondents per item for the required sample size in a validation study [26]validating a seven-item questionnaire requires a sample size of 70. Therefore, the required sample size was estimated at 84 to allow for a 20% dropout rate.

A painless bump that appeared on your leg seems to be getting bigger. But it still doesn’t hurt, so you ignore it. That could be a big mistake, according to Juan Pretell, MD, chief of musculoskeletal oncology surgery at the Miami Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health.

Juan Pretell, MD, Chief of Musculoskeletal Surgical Oncology at the Miami Cancer Institute

“Most people think that if they develop a ‘bump’ that doesn’t hurt, they’re fine, or because it doesn’t hurt, it’s okay,” says Dr Pretell. This is one of the most common misconceptions he hears from patients with newly diagnosed soft tissue sarcoma.

National Sarcoma Awareness Month is an opportunity to dispel myths and raise awareness about this rare cancer. Each year in the United States, more than 13,000 patients are diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma and another 4,000 are diagnosed with bone sarcoma.

Both children and adults can develop sarcoma, and although there are certain mutations and genetic conditions ― and risk factors such as chemical exposure and previous radiation therapy ― that can predispose some people to the disease, most who develop it do not have any of these known risk factors. The factors.

“Ask the average person on the street what a sarcoma is and most won’t be able to tell you,” says Dr. Pretell. “Although it is rare, it can be very aggressive, so the earlier it is detected, the better the chance of survival.”

There are many subtypes of sarcoma and they can occur anywhere in the body. They often metastasize or spread. Soft tissue sarcomas are most commonly found in the fat, muscle, nerves, and blood vessels of the arms, legs, and abdomen. Bone sarcomas start in the bones and are usually found in the thigh, upper arm, or shin.

Sarcoma symptoms

A patient with bone sarcoma may experience pain in the tumor area. “It can be associated with swelling and functional limitation,” says Dr. Pretell. Other symptoms of sarcoma include:

  • A painless “bump” that appears for no apparent reason
  • Any growing lump or mass
  • An unexpected fracture that occurs with little or no injury or for a known reason
  • Abdominal pain
  • Weightloss

Treat Sarcoma

Sarcoma treatment usually involves surgery. Sometimes chemotherapy is given before and/or after surgery, and the vast majority of patients also receive radiation therapy.

“If you have sarcoma, it’s important to be treated and monitored at a specialized center like the Miami Cancer Institute,” says Dr. Pretell. “We have a multidisciplinary team that includes orthopedic oncology surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, plastic surgeons and rehabilitation experts. Because sarcomas are rare, you want to make sure you are receiving care from an experienced team.

Doctors at the Miami Cancer Institute offer complex limb salvage procedures that allow removal of a tumor while maintaining function. And, as Florida’s only member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, the Institute has access to the most innovative clinical trials.

New Advances

Although sarcoma receives less research funding than many other types of cancer, there are promising diagnostic tools and treatments on the horizon. “Molecular tests that identify specific mutations in sarcoma patients lead to more accurate and earlier diagnoses, while helping to make treatment decisions,” says Dr. Pretell.

In addition, immunotherapies are increasingly used and show benefits in patients with certain types of sarcomas. Immunotherapy drugs help the body’s immune system target and kill cancer cells. Other advances include 3D printing, leading to better implants and prostheses, and navigation systems that are being developed to improve surgical outcomes.

Sarcoma is not curable once it has spread, which is why Dr. Pretell stresses the importance of having any lumps or masses evaluated. “It’s better to find out that you’re okay than to find out that your cancer has spread,” he says.

Ardmore woman admits stealing $394,000 from Main Line employer https://rhinoplastydigest.com/ardmore-woman-admits-stealing-394000-from-main-line-employer/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 08:45:10 +0000 https://rhinoplastydigest.com/ardmore-woman-admits-stealing-394000-from-main-line-employer/ NORRISTOWN – An Ardmore woman has admitted to stealing nearly $400,000 from the Main Line roofing company she worked for, using an embezzlement scheme to support “a lavish lifestyle”, including vacation trips and cosmetic surgery for buttock augmentation. Tiarah Tiffany Brokenborough, 30, of the 100 block of Elm Avenue in Ardmore, pleaded guilty in Montgomery […]]]>

NORRISTOWN – An Ardmore woman has admitted to stealing nearly $400,000 from the Main Line roofing company she worked for, using an embezzlement scheme to support “a lavish lifestyle”, including vacation trips and cosmetic surgery for buttock augmentation.

Tiarah Tiffany Brokenborough, 30, of the 100 block of Elm Avenue in Ardmore, pleaded guilty in Montgomery County Court to felony charges of trafficking in the proceeds of unlawful business and theft by unlawful taking in connection with incidents that occurred between October 2018 and March 2020 while she was an accountant at Hynes Roofing and Siding.

Judge Thomas P. Rogers postponed sentencing so court officials could write a background investigation report on Brokenborough, who remains free on bail pending a sentencing hearing.

The open plea means Brokenborough has no agreement with prosecutors over his potential sentence. Rogers will have full discretion to shape the sentence after hearing arguments from Assistant District Attorney Scott Frame and defense attorney Eugene Tinari.

Brokenborough faces a maximum sentence of 13½ to 27 years in prison. However, state sentencing guidelines may allow for a lesser sentence.

Frame has vowed to seek a state prison sentence against Brokenborough.

“She spent that money on a lavish lifestyle which included flying across the country to go to different sports games…and she also spent it on body augmentation. She spent every penny and unfortunately because of that the victims in this case, an elderly couple who had worked their whole lives to build this roofing business, have now effectively lost their pensions,” said added Frame.

“We will absolutely seek a state prison sentence in this case because it is such egregious conduct to live a lavish lifestyle and destroy someone’s retirement dreams,” Frame added.

Along with the charges, prosecutors alleged that Brokenborough used company credit cards to rack up personal bills totaling more than $394,000. Prosecutors alleged Brokenborough used the credit cards to pay for airline tickets, restaurant meals, vacation expenses, rent and tickets to a Drake concert and professional sporting events. Brokenborough also paid a plastic surgeon $5,865 for liposuction and buttock augmentation, court documents show.

An investigation began in March 2020, when the owners of the roofing business, located along Sibley Avenue, contacted Lower Merion Police to report the theft by Brokenborough. The company’s accountant discovered the theft after being contacted by one of the credit card companies regarding an outstanding balance of $59,000, according to the criminal complaint filed by Lower Merion Detective Edward Sarama.

Company officials said they believe the card was canceled 18 months earlier. It was later determined that the map address had been changed to a house in Lansdowne where Brokenborough was living at the time. The card balance was paid through the company’s Bryn Mawr Trust bank account, investigators said.

According to the criminal complaint, a Lower Merion detective recovered photos of Brokenborough via her iCloud account showing her in places such as a 76ers game, a Dallas Cowboys game in Dallas, nightclubs, a concert, and d ‘other places. When verifying the information encoded in the digital photos, many of them matched the dates and locations where the credit cards were used, according to court documents.

“As a result of my investigation, I believe Tiarah Brokenborough is responsible for the theft of $394,412.44 from Hynes Roofing and Siding through fraudulent use of a credit card and theft of the company’s checking account,” wrote Sarama in the criminal complaint. “Brokenborough was in a position of trust in the business as an accountant and used that trust to access Hynes’ personal information and business accounts. She used these accounts to fund fine dining, vacations, attendance at sporting events, and plastic surgery.

When announcing Brokenborough’s arrest in November 2020, District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said Brokenborough breached a trust.

“This family business was run by someone they trusted. Unfortunately, it’s not completely uncommon,” Steele said at the time. “This is a reminder that every business and non-profit organization should have controls over an accountant or treasurer, so more than one person has control and oversight over monetary activity. This is the only way to ensure that the company or organization’s money is safe.

Tell me again why she was ashamed of doing things like changing her name, which half of Hollywood does too.

Rebel Wilson recently stepped out, posting an adorable photo with his girlfriend on his Instagram.

However, news soon arrived that Australian gossip columnist Andrew Hornery was going to reveal the news himself before Rebel could and had given him a two-day window to respond before publishing an article on Wilson’s relationship…leading to Rebel. post first.

Stefanie Keenan/Getty Images for the Academy Film Museum

It’s clearly screwed up, and it got me thinking…that’s not the only issue Wilson has had with the press. In fact, she was treated super badly, and I have the receipts to prove it. Here are 14 times newspapers and magazines had to apologize to Rebel.

1.

First, let’s talk about this gossip columnist in more depth. Not only did he almost eliminate Wilson, but Hornery responded as if he were the victim of the situation, not the person he almost eliminated. Hornery said he emailed Wilson for a comment, which led to her coming out on Instagram, so he later claimed Wilson chose “to watch the story.” He also wrote, “His choice to ignore our discreet, genuine and honest requests was, in our view, disappointing.

The column has since been deleted and is now linked to an apology to Wilson, but Hornery denied that his article was intended to “kill” Wilson. Wilson responded to the situation on Twitter, calling it “difficult” but saying she was “trying to handle it with grace”.

@katedoak @smh @theage Thanks for your feedback, it was a very difficult situation but I’m trying to handle it with grace 💗


Twitter: @RebelWilson

2.

While a large number of people supported Rebel’s relationship, it was used by others as an opportunity to make fun of her. For example, in an Australian show Did you pay attention, the comedians joked about Rebel after the news.

Network 10

While they haven’t made fun of her relationship, in particular, using Rebel’s coming out as an opportunity to bring her up and make fun of her is seriously uncool.

3.

Next, let’s talk about the libel case that Rebel Wilson won against several magazines. In 2015, Australia’s Women’s Day magazine published an article titled “Separating fact from fiction: Will the real Rebel Wilson please stand up?” The article (among other things) alleged that Wilson lied about his age, name and education.

web.archive.org

Many other outlets picked up the information shared in the article.

While Wilson had changed her name (which is pretty standard for Hollywood) and simply refused to answer questions about her age (not that unusual either), she sued for defamation, claiming she had no not lie. Because these articles portrayed her as a “serial liar”, she said she lost several roles, such as in Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls. “Month after month, doors that were open have closed,” she said at the trial.

Wilson also faced a ton of focus on his weight and body. After embarking on a “healthy year” in 2020, largely in preparation for pregnancy, Wilson has lost 77 pounds. There has been intense media coverage of her weight loss – including a People magazine cover that some say played into a shameful narrative.

5.

I mean, just look at the Daily Mail. It was just me searching for “Rebel Wilson” and scrolling down, not looking for anything about weight loss or her body.

6.

In fact, a Daily Mail article called her “unrecognizable” and said she was “overwhelmed” in her clothes.

seven.

And a quick search of page six shows a ton of articles on Rebel, almost all with the term “slimed down” in the title.

8.

And okay! Magazine says she went from “Fat Amy” to “Fit Amy”.

This is of course a reference to Rebel’s Perfect character, who goes by “Fat Amy” so others don’t call her that first.

It got to the point where the media coverage of his weight was much broader and more pervasive than the coverage of his career. “In 2019, I had, like, four movies that came out, two that I produced and one, JoJo Rabbit, which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture,” Wilson herself pointed out. “Still, I get more press the following year where I do nothing but lose weight.”

“People are so obsessed with weight,” Wilson said, though she admitted she “got it” after following Oprah’s weight loss journey closely.

9.

Rebel herself is certainly entitled to prefer that online platforms use more current photos of her. A few weeks ago, she posted to her Instagram Story and asked if someone could change her Wikipedia photo — which was ten years old — and fans delivered.

However, this is how the interaction was reported by the Daily Mail. I don’t know where they get their “rages” from in the photo above. Also, someone has since changed the photo to one even older than the original – from 2012. Obviously someone is messing with Rebel.

ten.

Speaking of her weight loss, many outlets, including People, also incorrectly reported that Rebel used the “Mayr Method” to lose weight. Wilson took to her Instagram Story to say, “This was never my diet, please stop writing this stuff,” adding that she “would never have approved of either. diet pills or magic pills to lose weight”.

“It’s really annoying when people use my image illegally or in a misleading way,” Wilson wrote.

11.

She also added that she “would never have endorsed diet pills or magic diet pills either” after her image was falsely used in advertisements for numerous diet pills online.

This claim not only hurts the fans who can buy the pills, but Wilson’s reputation.

12.

That’s not where the discussion about her body ends either – there’s also this really weird article about all the times she’s gone braless???

13.

And that really means a TMZ article that was really just a poll to find out if readers thought Rebel had plastic surgery or not.

14.

And finally, it’s OK! A magazine article asked plastic surgeons if Rebel had plastic surgery in addition to her weight loss.

okmagazine.com

I hate to speculate on celebrity plastic surgery. Like, okay, there are instances where celebrities who don’t talk about their own plastic surgery can promote unrealistic beauty standards. But overall it just seems demeaning and somehow out of place.

TL; DR: I understand that celebrities have to face a certain level of scrutiny. But dealing with unwarranted reports about your sexuality, weight, possible surgery, age, fertility, etc. just isn’t cool, and Rebel Wilson deserves a major apology.

The The management of a Lagos-based clinic, Cynosure Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, has called for calm as the inquest into the death of client Christabel Gabriel, a Port Harcourt-based beauty queen, continues.

The call followed reports on social media that the late Miss Gabriel died during hip surgery in Lagos.

Consultant plastic surgeon at Cynosure Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ogbe Omoruyi, while speaking with reporters, said he was open to the investigation and had nothing to hide.

He said representatives of the relevant agencies had already visited the facility for a thorough investigation, with CCTV footage available.

“I have submitted myself to the Police, Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) and Lagos State Blood Services for investigation, as a law abiding citizen charged with the death of his client four days after his operation.

“Allow me once again to express my deepest condolences to the elderly parents, siblings, loved ones, friends and supporters of our late client. It is on a very sad note that I comment on the passing of our dear client, which occurred on May 31, 2022.

Reiterating that the operation was a success, he said: “The same day after the operation, she was able to eat. And then she was able to walk, move around. The next day, she was able to go to the bathroom and toilet on her own.

“While I will be careful not to reveal details of our client’s medical information and history, it has also become necessary for me to address some of the unfounded innuendo, misinformation and accusations circulating in the wake of her passing.

“It is regrettable that while the family of the deceased is in mourning, some people persist in making accusations against me and questioning my professional qualifications in the care of my client, now deceased”, said the surgeon.

Sympathizing with all parties involved, Omoruyi added, “I urge the family of the deceased, my family and friends, and my professional colleagues to be patient while these investigations are carried out. I am sure that in the end I will be cleared of all charges in this matter.

“There is no doubt that the police investigations, which have since begun, are already revealing the truth as there is sufficient evidence, including CCTV footage and the statement of the only friend who visited my client during his admission.

“I don’t want to comment further on that at this time. I hope the police and my fellow professionals will do a thorough job and be discreet in their investigations, which include an autopsy and toxicology of all relevant samples. Medicine is a science, not sensationalism.

“The good Lord would prove me right and the true cause of death of my deceased beloved patient would be clearly established.”

Forget the kids, now Kardashian fans are speculating if mom Kris Jenner did secret work — and hid it from the public.

In a Reddit thread, some fans say the 66-year-old mom had a Brazilian butt lift herself, and they say the proof is in the pictures.

It all started after someone posted a series of photos of Kris’ back, with the subject: “We need to talk about Kris’ BBL, and why is she hiding it today?”

In the comments section, fans gave a variety of responses, starting with absolute shock.

“OMG, how did I never notice?” a subscriber posted. “I guess I respectfully wasn’t checking her out.”

Another added: “Thought she just had a mum bum lmao.

“She’s a little short and curvy, just like my mom, so I thought hers was natural this whole time.”

A still third pointed out: “She always hides it under those blazers she wears every day.”

Other Reddit users speculated if there was some sort of conspiracy theory as to why the senior member of the Kardashians would want the surgery, as if she was trying to help her children in a small, but big way.

“Do you think she did it, so others could claim genetics? Even Kylie?” one person asked. “She took one for the team.”

“I think she did it to validate her daughter’s claims that her butt is real,” another speculated. “If three out of four daughters have giant asses but their mother has an average woman behind… the jig is up!”

Yet one respondent offered a more natural reason.

“Perhaps because she gained weight?” the person commented. “I think it’s the heaviest she’s had in her life (I think she looks good).

“I noticed that she wore more flowing and less tight clothes than ever. She doesn’t show her arms anymore.”

A WINNING BET

Whatever the reason, Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble seems to like the look.

The two vacationed together in Italy and photos captured the 41-year-old looking after his longtime girlfriend during the trip.

In the snaps, the pair donned matching pink outfits for the outing with friends, with Kris accessorizing with a pink turban and gold drop earrings.

They were seen mingling with other passengers before venturing to one end of the boat for some time alone.

At that point, the lovebirds moved closer as Corey reached for Kris’ back as she smiled at the gesture.

The PDA-filled moment was shocking to fans, as the longtime couple usually keep this aspect of their relationship private.

Corey shared the same snap on his page, and one of them kissing with the stunning panoramic view in the background.

His caption read: “Med day Love…”

LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER

Butt Lift rumors run in the family.

Recent photos of her 37-year-old daughter, Khloe, showed a different rear end than she displayed years ago.

When Khloe was in her early thirties, her behind got a lot of attention, especially in the tight skirts and pants she prefers.

With her butt looking a little disproportionately larger than the rest of her, some fans have speculated that she may have had a Brazilian butt lift procedure.

Despite the surgery rumors, Khloe started sharing more about her fitness regimen with her social media followers after Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian premiered in 2017.

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 290,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are diagnosed each year. Like me, I’m sure you can name an aunt, friend, sister, roommate or mother who had it or currently has it. It is the most common cancer in women in the United States, affecting one in eight women.

In March, I became one of eight. After a yearly mammogram, I was diagnosed with stage 1 ductile carcinoma. It’s the most common and treatable breast cancer, and thanks to my early detection, I’m in good shape for a good outcome.

But for me, a 43-year-old woman with two children, the diagnosis was – and still is – a shock.

I grew up in the shadow of my paternal grandmother’s breast cancer, a diagnosis she received at age 48, in 1982, before there were genetic tests or many more treatment options. of mastectomy. She beat this cancer and didn’t spend much time in my life publicly worrying about her coming back.

“What will happen will happen,” she often told me, and she was right: her cancer didn’t return until almost 40 years later in her womb, and ended up taking her life three years ago, so that she was 84 years old.

Yet, with its decades-long achievement in hand, I spent much of my life subconsciously worrying about breast cancer, and all cancers, really. I did all the “right things” to avoid it: I exercise five times a week, I don’t smoke. I am a healthy weight, eat well and am not a heavy drinker. I go for routine checkups because I am proactive and believe in taking care of myself.

The American Cancer Society recommends women start screening at age 45, but women between the ages of 40 and 44 can choose to do it earlier. I started screening when I was 40, because I thought you couldn’t be too careful. Like many women, I have dense breasts. This made me insist on an ultrasound (ultrasound) to accompany the mammogram, even though my insurance company doesn’t like to pay for it.

So in February, as I had the previous two years, I went for a mammogram and an ultrasound.

The mammogram revealed no abnormalities. But the ultrasound did, and that ultrasound that no one likes to allow might just have saved my life.

What happened next is somewhat hazy: I was told to do a biopsy, which was almost impossible to schedule. I couldn’t get an appointment for two months and tried five different places. Everyone told me: “We are booked until June” or “We only have one technician”.

The pandemic has done our collective health a disservice, claiming a million deaths from COVID and exhausting our medical professionals to the point of no return.

People have gone back to the doctor and the procedures they put off are piling up. Conditions that could have been treated early now require more attention, and there is little wiggle room for patients with new conditions. After 10 days of trying to get an immediate appointment anywhere, I was in full blown panic mode. I started calling places in New Jersey when I was offered a last minute appointment for a biopsy nearly three weeks after I started my research. This visit led to a horrible phone call.

“Amanda, unfortunately your tumor is cancerous.”

A few days later, as I sat in the surgeon’s office, I still had trouble registering that sentence. She discussed treatment options; my husband and I cried.

Breast cancer mainly occurs in middle-aged and older women. My doctor’s first question was: What have you been exposed to? She cared little about my grandmother’s diagnosis because she was BRCA negative, meaning she didn’t carry the gene that indicates a marker for certain cancers.

The doctor went through the list of common carcinogenic exposures. When she asked me if I had ever lived and worked near the World Trade Center site, her face contorted when I said yes.

“It makes sense,” she said. “We have seen an increase in the number of patients like you over the past year. Are you enrolled in the WTC Health Program? »

When I said no, she told me to register immediately and connected me with a social worker to help me navigate the process.

I have spoken long and often about my experience of 9/11.

I responded that day, and hundreds more days after, because my first role as a reporter was producing segments for a show about the city’s post-9/11 rebuilding efforts. If it was WTC related, I was on it, or I knew about it. I spent time at St. Paul’s Chapel, the family room, Lower Manhattan Development Corp meetings. I bragged (and still do) about being a vessel for victims who couldn’t speak for themselves. And I have become an ally to families and first responders who have struggled to move on, to rebuild a site sacred to so many.

But in all my years on the cover—even later, reporting extensively on the inevitable health effects of that dust and debris—I had never signed up for the health program. I guess that sounded like something to first responders, and not to me. But I should have, because the program is FOR people like me who spent time downtown in the days and months after the attacks.

It’s strange to find myself in a story I’ve talked about in the news. It’s even weirder to accept that cancer, certified by the WTC Health Program, was the result of the work I did so early in my career, work that defined who I am and what kind of journalist I wanted. be.

It’s also extremely coincidental that I now work for the fire department as a press officer. In the year that has passed since I have held this position, I have seen report after report of members dying of 9/11-related illnesses, statistics that have always saddened me but made me also scared to death. But there is comfort in being here, for this time in my life, among so many caring and knowing eyes. In the midst of people who understand exactly what I’m going through, and from whom I don’t have to hide my pain, and my grief. For whom the shape of 9/11 has changed in two decades, but its heart is still the same: grief.

Of the roughly 110,000 members of the World Trade Center health program, about 79,000 are responders. This category includes FDNY, as well as others, like me, whose exposure was due to work being done on or near the site. Just over 31,000 people are listed as survivors.

Despite everything I’ve learned about the program over the years, reaching out to him as a potential participant was still surreal. Thanks to the help of excellent social workers, I was able to expedite my request before a scheduled surgery. My cancer was certified as 9/11 related just weeks after I applied, opening a door of health coverage and support that has been both overwhelming and reassuring.

Breast cancers were certified by the program as an approved 9/11-related cancer in 2013. It took a diagnosis of breast cancer in a man to allow similar coverage for female survivors and responders. Since then, breast cancer has been the most common cancer among women participating in the program, with approximately 2,000 diagnoses to date.

My cancer journey has only just begun and I am terrified. My breath was taken away, honestly. I feel like I have so many words, and then nothing. Overwhelmingly, I am aware that I am lucky: my early intervention will save my life; to plead for myself will lead to a good result. But in this regard, I am not typical.

Health issues aside, there are a lot of things that trouble me about this experience.

Start with screening.

According to the National Cancer Institute, nearly 50% of all women age 40 and older have dense breasts. Women with dense breasts may be twice as likely to develop cancer as those without. Dense breasts make it harder for mammograms to detect cancers. And although mammograms are excellent screening tools, they offer optimal results for women with dense breasts when used. tandem with ultrasounds.

My cancer was not visible in a mammogram; If I hadn’t asked my doctor for an ultrasound prescription and been given one, I would be walking around today thinking I was fine. An oncology nurse told me that she believed dense breasts, like family history, should be considered a high-risk marker for a woman’s likelihood of developing breast cancer. It’s time to do it obligatory that anyone with dense breasts gets a sonogram/ultrasound without asking or insisting. Early detection is paramount.

Second, it shouldn’t be that hard to get an appointment prescribed by a doctor. It’s not plastic surgery; it’s cancer. I’ve heard horror stories of people waiting months for appointments, desperately calling everyone they know for help finding a doctor. It’s outrageous that our healthcare system forces you to play the game of who you know when it comes to treatment plans. People’s lives are at stake. In this waiting space, tidal waves of paralyzing anxiety creep in; I cried asking for a date on more than one occasion.

If you can’t get an appointment quickly, be boring. Involve your attending physician on your behalf. Call the office of the specialist you are trying to make an appointment with and speak to a nurse and an office manager. Explain that it is urgent. Ask to be added to a cancellation list. Be flexible to drop everything if called with last minute availability.

It’s only been a few months, and sadly, I’ve already learned more than I ever wanted to know about navigating cancer. It was the toughest mental challenge of my life. Fear is debilitating. I’m learning to be present and positive and to accept what I can’t control.

Finally — and this is really the most important thing — I implore you, especially if you’re a journalist like me: if you’re not enrolled in the health program and you were at the World Trade Center site on 9/11 or every day in the following months… what are you waiting for? The federally funded program is here to help. And believe me, if you are diagnosed with cancer, you will need help.
