What is Northland Plastic Surgery? It is a place where many breast cancer patients have reconstructive surgery. They do much more. They do hand surgery, cosmetic surgery, microsurgery, and craniofacial surgery.  Did I say they also do skin care?  Check out their website at: www.northlandplasticsurgery.com

They are located at 1420 London Road, Duluth, MN 55805. Their phone number is 218-724-7363. They have some great surgeons there.  (Dr. Andrew Baertsch, Dr. Dean Weber, Dr. Andrew Messa, Dr. Thomas Rishavy) The staff is pretty awesome as well.

Check them out.

Breast cancer surgery is done when a women ha a mastectomy or sometimes even a lumpectomy (several times or a partial mastectomy). A lot can be done to make you look normal again. Breast cancer does not have to be a life sense.

There are different types of procedures such as the Tram flap. They have booklets that explain it in detail.

US Too, Prostate Cancer

04 Dec

Us Too is an international organization on prostrate cancer. There is a Lake Superior Chapter Prostate Cancer Support Group that is participating to raise money for US TOO International. This organization provides all the materials for newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients in the region. It has meetings one time per month at the Cloquet Community Memorial Hospital.  It is run by Mike Sullivan and Phil Maunu.

In their December newsletter there is an article about prostate cancer recurrence risk with triglycerides. We have heard about this for general health and well being. Excessive weight and obesity have a significant association with the development of aggressive prostate cancer and prostate mortality. Hypercholesterolemia and cholesterol have contributed to cancer progression.

This newsletter is jam packed full of information from drugs used for treatment and other treatments based on research. You can make a donation to US Too International at 2720 S. River Road, Suite 112, Des Plaines, IL 60018 that is tax deductible. If you want the newsletters go to www.ustoo.org/Hot_Sheets.asp or call 1.800.808.7866. The cost is $35.00 for 12 issues.

Health Insurance is a Must

30 Nov

Health Insurance is a Must

If you do not have health insurance you should apply with MNsure or the public program called Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care.

You can be denied treatment without health insurance. I am saying this from patients calling me on the phone who need surgeries and procedures done. One medical provider wants 100% up front. Another wants 25% up front. How many of you can come up with kind of money in this day and age? Also, if you are diagnosed with cancer, don’t have health insurance, you could be turned into collection, then denied further treatment. How many of you have had this experience? Call financial workers, and you will find out this information.

The Affordable Care Act has made insurance available for you and your family. Go to this website: www.healthcare.gov to find out further information.

If you are on MA or Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care they will contact you to renew your policy. These renewals are at different times.  The income requirements on this one are 200% below poverty. If you are a single person that would be $1,945.00 a month. A couple would be $2,622.00. There are no premiums with this insurance.  You can sign up anytime during the year for these programs. The premiums vary in price.

You can get help through a navigator through United way by calling 211 or 1.800.543.7707. You can also look at this website: www.insuredduluth.org

MNsure requires you to fill out a new application. The are the following deadlines: Dec. 15, January 15, Feb. 15.

About the Bluebird Foundation

The Bluebird Foundation Board hopes will be the beginning of helping many area students pursue their passion for the arts. The foundations mission statement is: To be an advocate for area youth in the performing arts and to create awareness of the power of the arts to enhance self-esteem, to increase understanding of others, and to improve academic performance.

The inspiration for the Bluebird Foundation came from Audrey Lundeen, late mother of Tracy Lundeen, who he solely credits for giving him the gift of music and the arts. “She introduced us to the Bluebird of Happiness when we were very young. For the Bluebird Foundation there is no better place to start than with kids. Giving kids the gift of the arts is truly a gift that will last a lifetime, a gift of calm during storms and peace during times of troubles. The arts are truly a gift that will always keep on giving,” he states.

The Bluebird Foundation is a Minnesota Corporation and a 501 (c)(3).
