Sign the Declaration to Protect Children and Families! | Family Watch International

Family Watch International

We Invite You and Your Children to Join Others Around the World in an Appeal for the Rights of Children and Families!

We urge you and/or your children to sign the “Declaration on the Rights of Children and Their Families: A Call from the Children of the World” (attached below).  This Declaration will be presented by a delegation of children to world leaders at a UN meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on Friday, September 12th and then later this year in New York. 

Also attached below is a letter from several of the children in this delegation addressed to you and your children asking you to join in this effort.

We have found that most world leaders are genuinely concerned about children and are increasingly asking to hear their views on policy matters that affect them.  Since this Declaration is coming from children around the world, they will pay special attention to it, and, of course, the more people (especially children) who sign it, the more impact it will have on these leaders.

We are asking that you do one or more of the following things:

  1. Sign the Declaration yourself (below).  (Note that all adults in your household can sign as individuals.)
  2. Discuss this Declaration with your children (if applicable) who are old enough to understand its basic principles.  This can be an opportunity to teach them about the importance of defending marriage and the rights of children and their families.
  3. If a child is old enough to understand it, and wants to sign the Declaration themselves, they may sign it below, only with a parent or guardian’s permission.
  4. Send this link on to others whom you think might also be interested in signing the Declaration or who might encourage their children to also sign.  The more people and countries represented, the more impact it will have.

Note:  We need your name, country, postal code and email even if you personally do not want to sign the Declaration.  We are requesting this information to verify that all children signing are doing so with their parent’s or legal guardian’s permission.  Check the box below if you wish to also add your name.  To protect privacy, no email addresses will never be made public and only your child’s first name, country and age will be distributed with any statements in support of the Declaration.  Entering their last names is optional.

This is an important opportunity to focus the attention of world leaders on the rights and needs of children and their families.

We hope as many people in your household as possible will support this Declaration!

Simply follow the official link of TFWI and check the appropriate boxes

Cancers of the anal canal: diagnosis, treatment and future strategies

Cancers of the anal canal: diagnosis, treatment and future strategies

Emma Bown, Vikas Shah, Thiagarajan Sridhar, Kirsten Boyle, David Hemingway, Justin M Yeung

ABSTRACT: Anal cancer is an uncommon cancer; however, it is rising in incidence. There is confusion regarding nomenclature and the distinction between anal canal cancer and anal margin cancer. This article discusses the modern definition, etiology and staging of anal canal and anal margin cancers. Modern chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimens are discussed, in addition to modern imaging and radiotherapy techniques. Future preventative strategies and potential novel treatments are discussed.

What if pathologists didn't exist?

What if pathologists didn't exist?

Most of the world has no idea what pathologists do, short of the forensic ones who appear on T.V. in crime-related shows. Even many of our clinician colleagues don't fully understand what is involved in our work. Medical charts are typically full of verbiage indicating that, "the specimen was sent to pathology and the diagnosis came back..." as if this all happens magically in a "black box." Tissue is inserted into a machine and the diagnosis comes out the other end. Well... maybe one day but not in my (or your) lifetimes.

One of our former residents tipped me off to the link below from the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA). If you've never attended one of their meetings and are looking for a good reason to visit the land down under, I strongly recommend it. The RCPA decided to have a little fun with the concept of what medicine would be like without a pathologic underpinning.

The site begins with the following message:

"If Pathologists didn't exist where would the answers come from? Pathology is the study of the nature and causes of diseases. It underpins every aspect of medicine, from diagnosis to monitoring, and is vital for research. Without pathologists, any answers found would be questionable to say the least. Every medical test, a case of trial and error. Exactly the kind of words you don't want to hear when it comes to your health. Watch the videos and see for yourself."

What follows then is series of short, very well done and admittedly quite silly videos with the serious premise that without pathologists clinicians would be absolutely clueless about diagnosing disease. Much like tribal "witch doctors" they might be relegated to devising and using all sorts of impractical, irreproducible, and completely non-functional schemes to aid in diagnosis. If you need a good laugh check this out. Afterwards think about what this says about our pivotal role in medicine. If you have non-medical friends who want to know if you're a "real doctor," and they have a good sense of humor, pass this link on to them!

The Occasional Role of Low-risk Human Papillomaviruses 6, 11, 42, 44, and 70 in Anogenital Carcinoma

The Occasional Role of Low-risk Human Papillomaviruses 6, 11, 42, 44, and 70 in Anogenital Carcinoma Defined by Laser Capture Microdissection/PCR Methodology: Results From a Global Study

Abstract: Low-risk human papillomaviruses (LR-HPVs) have been associated occasionally with clinically and pathologically unusual anogenital malignancies. The relation between clinicopathologic features and any pathogenetic role of LR-HPV remains unclear. From a global study of 13,328 anogenital carcinomas, we identified 57 cases in which whole-tissue polymerase chain reaction using SPF10-LiPA25 showed single LR-HPV infection. In 43/46 (93.5%) available carcinomas, multiple polymerase chain reaction assays confirmed single detection of HPV6, 11, 42, 44, or 70 DNA. In 75% (n=32) of these, LR-HPV DNA was confirmed in tumor cells by laser capture microdissection. In 2 cases, including 1 adenocarcinoma, viral DNA was only found outside the tumor. All anogenital tumors with confirmed HPV6/11 showed a distinctive range of papillary, warty or warty-basaloid, squamous, or transitional histology with patchy or negative p16INK4a expression. HPV6-associated cervical tumors occurred at a low median age. HPV42/70 was associated with typical squamous cell carcinoma showing diffuse p16INK4a staining like high-risk HPV–related malignancies. HPV44 was found in malignant cells in 1 case. Viral taxonomy and theoretical analysis show that HPV6/11 belong to a different genus from HPV42/70 with E6/E7 gene products that would not bind pRb or p53, whereas HPV42/70 could bind pRb. Our data support the causal involvement of LR-HPVs in the carcinogenesis of <2% of anogenital malignancies of 2 distinct clinicopathologic patterns related to the genetic structure of the HPV types 6/11 and 70/42. HPV42/70 was associated with typical squamous carcinomas. Importantly all carcinomas associated with HPV6/11 globally showed verruco-papillary, well-differentiated, squamous, or transitional histology without p16INK4a expression.
