ONCOLOGY TEAM

Cancer is not a one-person battle. And Donnie Bergeron believes that the support and trust of his family and doctors was a tremendous advantage in his battle with cancer. Donnie’s treatment included chemotherapy and radiation at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC in Houma. With treatment close to home, Donnie was able to count on his doctors and team of medical specialists to care for him with ease, convenience and thoroughness. As a former patient, he believes that, “Terrebonne Parish is very lucky to have Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC.”

CHAIRMAN’S LETTER

I

am pleased to present the 2010 Annual Report of Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at Terrebonne General Medical Center, or MBP at TGMC. On the pages that follow you will read about the significant accomplishments our cancer program achieved over the last year, led by our mission which is to improve survivorship and lessen the burden of cancer through expert treatment, compassionate care, early detection, research and education. Our program proves daily that area residents do not have to leave family and friends behind to find innovative, world-class treatment. In November 2009, ground was broken for our new comprehensive cancer center to serve residents of Houma and its surrounding communities. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, the new cancer center will be the first hospital construction project in Louisiana to earn a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. Mary Bird Perkins at TGMC would qualify based on its sustainable components incorporated into the structure’s design and construction. It tells the community that we are truly committed to environmentally-friendly operations. The new space will offer patients the same professional and compassionate care they have been receiving but now in a more convenient, modern facility where all the services needed for cancer care will be located in a single comprehensive center. The innovative and environmentally-friendly building, which is over 49,000 square feet, is scheduled to open in late summer of 2011. During 2010, Mary Bird Perkins at TGMC received a three-year accreditation in radiation oncology from the American College of Radiology (ACR). Image quality and procedure evaluations were conducted by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice.

“It’s been a blessing to me,”says Monsignor Frederic

Our Cancer Program is dedicated to increasing access to leading-edge clinical research trials, particularly among minority and underserved populations, and to expanding the types of trials available. We added a professional patient navigator to our team to help cancer patients overcome any barriers they might encounter which would keep them from getting their treatments. In addition, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC continued to increase public awareness for prevention and early detection in our service area by providing free cancer screenings to the medically underserved in conjunction with the Early Bird mobile medical clinic. Over 750 people were screened at 14 free cancer screenings.

CANCER LIAISON PHYSICIAN’S REPORT

As a professional in the media, Tina DeSalvo Callais knows how important it is to stay informed. And after being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, her research led her to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC for up-to-date technology in the area. Seeing that Mary Bird patients were happy with their treatment, Tina chose Mary Bird Perkins at TGMC and considers it an excellent leader in the fight against cancer.

D

uring the past year our Cancer Committee has made tremendous strides to continue to provide exceptional cancer care to all of our patients. With our comprehensive cancer care program located close to home, we strive to continue to provide high quality, compassionate, cancer care to the citizens of our area. This past year our Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC was awarded a three-year term of accreditation on radiation oncology services by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Virginia, awards accreditations to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after peer-review evaluation of the practice. This accreditation is assurance that we are committed to making quality patient care our utmost priority. Currently underway is the construction for the new Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC. This facility is being built by The McDonnel Group with the intention to achieve the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification upon completion. The LEED Silver rating is based on the sustainable components incorporated into the structure’s design and construction. Not only will the facility be patient friendly but environmentally friendly as well. The 49,000 square feet, state-ofthe-art comprehensive cancer center will bring all services needed for cancer care under one roof for area residents. The new facility will allow our physicians to perform leading edge treatments and the patients will have the convenience of seeing their oncologists as well as having diagnostic testing and treatment all at one location. The project is scheduled for completion in the late summer of 2011. We continue to provide educational conferences for our physicians with a multidisciplinary focus to enhance the entire continuum of cancer care. Community outreach is an ongoing goal. This year over 750 residents of our area were screened for breast, prostate, colorectal and skin cancers − all at no cost to the patient. The Cancer Committee proudly presents the 2010 Annual Report. I hope you find this report both informative and educational. On behalf of the Cancer Committee, we would like to thank everyone for their contributions during the last year to help ensure that our cancer program is a success. We look forward to continuing to provide excellent cancer care in our new state-of-the-art facility in the coming year.

Participants have access to promising new approaches that are often not available outside the clinical research trial setting. The approach being studied may be more effective than the standard approach. Participants receive regular and careful medical attention from a research team that includes doctors and other health professionals. Participants may be the first to benefit from the new method under study. Results from the study may help others in the future. Treatment trials test experimental treatments, new combinations of drugs, or new approaches to surgery or radiation therapy. Prevention trials look for better ways to prevent disease in people who have never had the disease or to prevent a disease from returning. The approaches may include medicines, vaccines, minerals and lifestyle changes. Diagnostic trials are conducted to find better tests or procedures for diagnosing a particular disease or condition. Screening trials test the best way to detect certain diseases or health conditions. Quality of Life trials (or Supportive Care trials) explore ways to improve comfort and the quality of life for individuals with a chronic illness.

Specifically, clinical research trials offer our patients the opportunity to participate in the advancement of evidence-based medicine close to home.

LUNG CANCER OVERVIEW

AGE OF DIAGNOSIS

According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the United States. Tobacco use accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths and 87% of lung cancer deaths. Non-small cell lung cancer is the most common type of lung cancer making up nearly 80% of all cases. Small cell lung cancer makes up nearly 20% of all lung cancer cases. Increasing age is a risk factor for lung cancer. It is less common in people under age 40. More diagnoses occur after age 45 and a larger number over age 65 as is reflected in the age at diagnosis graph.

Once a patient receives a positive diagnosis, the physician will categorize the lung cancer in stages. The stage describes the progression or extent of the lung cancer, and will help determine which treatment is best for the patient. Keep in mind that staging does not necessarily indicate the likely course and outcome (prognosis) of the lung cancer. The prognosis depends on the overall health, strength, co-morbidities, and response to treatment of each individual patient.

RACE-ETHNICITY

There are three main types of treatment for lung cancer. 1. Curative Surgery A lung cancer surgeon (thoracic surgeon) will perform surgery in the early stages of lung cancer to remove a tumor, surrounding lymph nodes, and tissue. This is called wedge resection. If the surrounding tissue is found to be cancerous, more of the lung may need to be removed (segmental resection). If the cancer is extensive, a lobe of your lung may be removed (lobectomy), or an entire lung (pneumonectomy) may be removed. This procedure greatly increases the chance of survival for some cancer types.

2. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is referred to as a systemic therapy, because it uses strong drugs to slow or kill cancer cells throughout the whole body. The drugs can be taken orally, in pill or liquid form, but are usually administered intravenously. The dosage and length of treatment varies, depending on the type of lung cancer and the response to the treatment.

Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays to reduce or kill cancer cells. Radiation can be focused to specific areas, decreasing the possibility of damaging healthy cells. The doses are administered over a period of weeks or months. This can be the main treatment for some patients, while others will receive it to kill cancer cells that remain after surgery.

CANCER REGISTRY SUMMARY

CANCER REGISTRY

TUMOR CONFERENCE

The Cancer Registry at Terrebonne General Medical Center continues to be a significant element in the evaluation of cancer care.

The Cancer Committee ensures that a certain percentage of diagnosed cancer cases are presented every year at Tumor Conference. These cases are discussed for the purpose of education and appropriate treatment modalities. The conferences are evaluated annually based on multidisciplinary attendance, frequency and total case presentation. The majority of cancer cases are presented in a prospective fashion. In 2010, the TGMC Tumor Conferences consisted 10 conferences with 28 prospective cancer cases presented.

Recently, the registry participated in the facility’s accreditation process under the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons, and received commendation for its high level of abstraction. Under the guidance of the Cancer Committee, the registry collects newly diagnosed cancers for the purpose of research under the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), as well as on the local and regional level. TGMC reported 259 newly diagnosed cancers in 2009. The top five primary sites reported were: QQ

Lung (70)

QQ

Prostate (24)

QQ

Breast (14)

QQ

Colorectal (35)

QQ

Kidney (24)

The Cancer Registry of TGMC is a member of the Louisiana Cancer Registrars Association and the National Cancer Registrars Association.
