Beauty queen shaves head for cancer research money
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Miss Alaska pageant requires contestants to perform a public service project. Under Debbe Ebben's silver tiara is evidence of hers.
The reigning Miss Chugiak-Eagle River has raised more than $4,000 for children's cancer research for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, and last weekend, delivered on a promise to people who pledged by allowing her brown tresses to be buzzed off.
She's proud of raising money, but the underlying message is for children who lose their hair because of cancer treatments.
"You're proving it's OK to be bald regardless of whether you chose to be or not," Ebben said.

UW Medicine using cutting-edge technology to help locate breast tumors | Q13 FOX News
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight U.S. women will get breast cancer. Until recently, surgery to remove tissue and tumors involved invasive wires but cutting-edge technology at UW Medicine aims to change that.

Sarcoma Alliance: Physics and math bring more precision to treatment
Dr. Jeremy Mason
My mentor at a cancer conference has taken only one biology class in his life, and that was when he was a freshman in high school. Nevertheless, his knowledge can change the way you think of cancer — and the way doctors treat it.

“Math, physics and computer science have a profound impact on the field of cancer research today,” said Jeremy Mason, who has his doctorate in engineering. “Other scholars with little to no experience in cancer are applying their own knowledge and skills to build detailed and relevant models of the event prediction, cellular birth/death processes, therapeutic responses and much more.

“One day, these models will be used for the common goal of improving patient care and extending lives.”

Factors Associated With Cancer Disparities Among Low-, Medium-, and High-Income US Counties | Health Disparities | JAMA Network Open | JAMA Network
After identifying the possible mediators, we estimated the indirect effects, which are given by the product of the coefficients of the association between (1) the exposure and the mediators and (2) the mediators and the outcome.27 We used a method called seemingly unrelated regression, which is used to correct for the possibility of correlations between error terms in a series of similar models.29 We used the indirect effects to calculate the percentage mediated (ie, the percentage of the exposure-outcome association that can be explained by the possible mediator) and we used bootstrapped standard errors with 5000 repetitions because the errors for indirect effects are often skewed.27

Cancer death disparities linked to poverty, lifestyle factors nationwide | YaleNews
While cancer death rates have decreased overall in the United States in recent decades, substantial disparities among counties still exist and are growing. To examine the factors that may drive these disparities, a team of Yale-led researchers analyzed publicly available data documenting cancer mortality rates by county. They compared the rates in low-, medium-, and high-income counties. Using a novel method known as *mediation analysis*, the research team identified factors that were associated with the disparities, they said.
