When Bill Yuills ' grandfather settled in MEDICINE HAT in 1880s, there wasnt town to settle into He had to help make one. Back then, folks would get together with friends and neighbours to try and build town community, Yuill say. That entrepeurial attitude has stayed in family for generations, and continued to shape Yuill's own desire to work with local causes. Through Yuill Family Foundation, Bill Yuill and his Family support variety of causes in MEDICINE HAT, including education, youth sports, and cancer care and research. In 2011, their Foundation committed 2 million to Alberta Cancer in honour of Yuill's mother, for whom Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre is now name. Margery Yuill, nurse and volunteer, died pancreatic Cancer in 1965. Yuill remember her as kind person, sort of low-profile, community-building mom who might not always stand out in region where prominent men dominate spotlight.

Two years after that generous donation, Yuill Family Foundation announced it would match proceeds raised by Royal LePage Breast Cancer Golf Classic.

Yuill Cancer Centre. 22 annual Golf Tournament in July 2018 raise total of 77 100, funds that will be used to help improve treatment experience for cancer patients at Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre.

He has been involved with Golf Tournament as participant and informal advisor since his friend Debra Cantalini-Gallant founded event 23 years ago. Late Cantalini-Gallant Was Breast Cancer Survivor And Tireless Fundraiser For Breast Cancer Research And Treatment. After she died in 2013, Yuill thought it would be fitting tribute to support tournament that had meant so much to her. In fact, Royal LePage Breast Cancer Golf Classic is important to entire town. Yuill describes it as one of MEDICINE ' major summer events, well-run community tradition that unites participants, local businesses, volunteers and supporters. Tournaments directly affect lives of many local people. Amazing number of people who have in that golf Tournament, who have subsequently been treated at Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre, Yuill say.

Medicine Hat losing its oncologist

Patients aged 18-80 years receiving first-line intravenous chemotherapy for any stage of breast or Cancer were eligible. Patient symptoms, peripheral and Stanford Sleepiness Scale were assess. Five-minute PVT TMT-B were completed on tablet computer pre-chemotherapy and immediately post-chemotherapy. Using mixed linear regression model, changes in reciprocal transform PVT reaction time were assess. Priori, increase in median PVT reaction times by 20 ms was considered clinically relevant. This pre-post design prospective single-site study was conducted at Baker Cancer Centre. Study Was Approved By Health Research Ethics Board Of Alberta Cancer Committee. Informed consent was obtained in writing all participants. Patients between ages of 18 and 80 years receiving intravenous chemotherapy for pathologically-confirm diagnosis of breast or colorectal Cancer in neoadjuvant, adjuvant and first-line metastatic treatment settings were eligible. Patients with history of brain metastases, known neurological disorder or of allergic reactions to chemotherapy were excluded from study, as were patients unable to read or understand consent form and cognitive testing instructions. Number Of Prior Chemotherapy Cycles Was Record, As Patients Were Not Required To Be Chemotherapy Naive. Testing was not repeated multiple cycles of chemotherapy for any participant. Psychomotor Vigilance Test Is Test Of Ability To Sustain Attention Over Time, That Primarily Assesses Orientation And Attention. Pvt is most often used in assessment fatigue and sleep deprivation, and has been Test in multiple settings, including in drivers, pilots, and physicians. Clinically, it has been used in traumatic brain injury, sleep apnea and to assess effects of various drugs. Pvt response times significantly increase in settings of cognitive impairment, including alcohol intoxication and fatigue. While traditional PVT is 10-min test, shorter test durations of five minutes are also valid. Another commonly used cognitive test is Trail-Making Test, which spans multiple cognitive domains. Specifically, performance on Trail-Making Test Part B is predictive of executive function cognitive flexibility. Like PVT, clinical and research applications of TMT-B are widespread, including dementia and as part of assessment of cognition in cancer patients. Additionally, Day et al. Demonstrate significant correlation between breath alcohol concentrations and performance on TMT-B, indicating usefulness of TMT-B in settings of cognitive impairment. To minimize Test-retest phenomenon with TMT-B, previously validated mirror image of original TMT-B form was used. Participants were randomly assigned to either original or mirrored version of TMT-B pre-chemotherapy, and complete alternate version post-chemotherapy. Participants were oriented to TMT-B with practice Trail to further practice effects. Both PVT and TMT-B were administered via touch-screen tablet computer, using in-house software program Java computer language. Patients were given test pre-chemotherapy either immediately upon arrival to chemotherapy unit, or in clinic day prior to their chemotherapy infusion. Post-chemotherapy testing occurs within 15 min of completion of chemotherapy infusions at Cancer Centre. Statistical analysis performed using R v3.
