CPW Rehab celebrated the 18th Annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day on May 25. The theme was “Making Fitness a Goal for Life!” CPW Rehab took this opportunity to honor the 79 Medical Fitness Program (MFP) participants who have been improving their individual health practices for more than 5 years. The honorees name, picture and number of years of participation was posted in the hallway of the facility. A dessert reception was held as a thank you and for personal recognition of these dedicated participants. Physical inactivity is a fast-growing public health problem and contributes to a variety of chronic diseases and health complications, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, depression and anxiety, arthritis and osteoporosis. In addition to improving a patient’s overall health, increasing physical activity has proven effective in the treatment and prevention of chronic disease. This is where the Medical Fitness Program comes in. The program is staffed by kinesiotherapists, physical therapist assistants and exercise specialists who are highly trained in disease prevention and management of many of these chronic health conditions. All of our staff are certified in CPR and are trained

and qualified to assess your specific needs to develop an individualized exercise program. Upon discharge, physical therapy patients have the option of continuing to improve their fitness through participation in this self-pay program. Another aspect of the Medical Fitness Program is to join a group exercise class, such as the Arthritis Foundation Arthritis Aquatics program. The Arthritis Foundation’s Arthritis Aquatics program has been a popular program since 1989. In response to public demand, the facility has added more advanced classes such as the Arthritis Aquatics Plus, Body Better H2O and Arthritis Foundation Tai Chi. CPW Rehab provides physical therapy and aquatic therapy to Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. The clinic was one of the first facilities in the area to offer onsite aquatic therapy. Known as the warmest therapeutic pool in Northwest Ohio, the pool is heated to 94° and is equipped with both a ramp and hydraulic chair lift. The facility is handicapped-accessible with convenient welllit parking. In addition to programming for the aging adult, CPW Rehab provides services for injured workers, incontinence problems, and individuals with orthopedic and neurological injuries.

(ARA) - Getting a diagnosis of any kind of cancer can be frightening. One of the first things many patients do is learn everything they can about their illness, including what options for disease management and treatment are available. This can be challenging if a person’s cancer is considered rare, which defined by the National Institutes of Health as a cancer that affects fewer than 200,000 people. Patients with rare cancers are more likely than those with more common cancers to say they lack access to credible and reliable information, causing them to feel alone in dealing with their disease, according to a national survey. For many like newlywed Carolina Williams, getting the right diagnosis and information about her GIST, a rare and life-threatening cancer, was important to both her and her family. One day, about a year into her marriage, Carolina Williams became extremely bloated and experienced terrible stomach pains which came on suddenly. Her husband knew something was seriously wrong when he found her unconscious on the floor from pain. He immediately brought her to the emergency room. There a physician conducted a CAT scan which revealed a large mass in her stomach that was diagnosed as a benign cyst. After four days of medical procedures to drain the cyst, a 7-pound solid tumor was removed and tested for cancer. “Once my doctor removed the tumor, I wanted to make sure that the hospital did the proper tests to check if the mass was cancerous,” says Carolina Williams. “I wasn’t going to leave it up to chance so I requested that an oncologist perform

I was then able to get the information I needed to help understand my disease.” When it comes to helping manage their own disease and acting as their own advocate, patients should seek out resources both through their physicians and reliable online websites. For some rare cancers, like GIST, there are a number of online resources, including www. GISTTheFactsInfo.com, an educational site for GIST patients and their families that was developed by Novartis Oncology. “It is so important for people with cancer, especially those with a rare cancer like me, to act as their own advocate when it comes to getting the right diagnosis, disease information and ultimately the right disease management plan,” says Carolina Williams. “Working with my doctor and learning more about my disease has helped me focus on the other important things in my life, including enjoying time with my husband and taking care of my son. They mean the world to me.” About Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) GIST is a rare, life-threatening cancer of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Most cases of GIST develop in the stomach or small bowel. They often do not cause any specific symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose and to treat. The exact number of people diagnosed with GIST each year is not known. In the U.S. alone, the incidence of GIST is estimated to be up to 6,000 new cases each year.

Stroke strikes younger, more often in Hispanics
(ARA) - Each year, 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke. Though stroke has dropped from the third to the fourth leading cause of death, it remains the leading cause of longterm disability in the U.S. Even more alarming is that strokes occur more often and are deadlier for Hispanics including young and middle-aged adults - than for other races and ethnicities. In fact, the average age for strokes among Hispanics is 67, considerably younger than for white Americans. Not all strokes are deadly. With rapid arrival at the hospital, there is a higher chance for people to reduce long-term disability and death. It is essential that people know the signs and symptoms of stroke and what to do when they witness someone having a stroke. In treating stroke, every minute counts. Treatments are available that greatly reduce the damage caused by a stroke. Knowing the symptoms of a stroke, making note of the time of the first stroke symptoms, and getting to the hospital quickly - within 60 minutes if possible - can help spare someone from serious long-term disability. “Fast action is crucial in reducing the long-term disabilities and deaths associated with stroke,” says Dr. Walter J. Koroshetz, deputy director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health. “If you recognize a sign or symptom of stroke in your friend or loved one, dial 9-1-1 immediately.”

June 15, 2011

A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Brain cells die when deprived of oxygen and nutrients provided by blood. Because stroke injures the brain, a person suffering a stroke may not realize what is happening. This is why NINDS recommends that bystanders act rapidly if they recognize any of the following signs of a stroke: * Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body). * Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech. * Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. * Sudden trouble walking, dizziness or loss of balance or coordination. * Sudden severe headache with no known cause. Making lifestyle changes can help prevent stroke. NINDS is addressing the high mortality rate of stroke by educating the public about the signs and symptoms of stroke and its risk factors, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, family history of stroke, high cholesterol and being overweight. People are advised to talk to their doctors and discuss any concerns about the risk factors of stroke, and find out what they can do to address them. More information on stroke, including how to reduce risk factors, is available from the NINDS. Order free Spanish-language materials by calling (800) 352-9424 or by visiting www. stroke.nih.gov.

Lourdes Baseball Team signs two standouts to program recently
The Lourdes baseball team has signed two players from the 2011 City League Champion Start High School baseball team. Marty Hall and Andrew Lepiarz signed with head baseball coach Andy Ham. “I am very pleased to sign both Marty and Andy,” Coach Ham said. “They come from one of the best baseball programs in Northwest Ohio and will hopefully contribute right away for us.” Hall signed back in April and was the four-year starting first baseman for the Spartans. He brings a strong, left-handed bat to the Gray Wolves. He was one of the best hitters in all of the Toledo City League by batting .391 with 23 RBIs, four doubles, and four steals his junior season. Hall not only brings a strong bat to Lourdes, but a strong glove as well as one of the top defensive first baseman in Toledo. “I chose Lourdes because of the small class sizes and because I think we will have a decent team,” Hall said. “Our team has the chance to develop into something special in the first four years.” “I’m very excited to have Marty join our team,” Coach Ham said. “He’s a big kid with a lot of potential. He will most likely bat in the middle of our lineup.” Lepiarz signed on May 27 and is a left-handed pitcher and four year member of Start’s varsity baseball team. He is one of the leaders in strikeouts and earned run average in the Northwest Ohio region which made him one of the top pitching prospects in the area. Lepiarz was a Crossroads Series All-State player and was a Buckeye Scout invite and participant in 2010. For his efforts on the mound, Lepiarz

ProMedica sponsored golf events help raise funds for area healthcare services -- many outings planned

The summer golf season is in full swing at ProMedica. ProMedica’s not-for-profit foundations will host various golf benefits and pro-am tournaments in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. All events will help raise money for various hospital programs and services including medical equipment, and programs and services to enhance patient care at ProMedica facilities. Previous events that were organized by foundation staff and community volunteers raised money for medical technology, such as digital mammography, cancer care, autism care, safe patient handling equipment, and the construction of several new healthcare facilities. This year, donations from Toledo Children’s Hospital’s golf benefit will go toward the Autism Collaborative, an innovative community partnership to improve the education, research, programs, and services to support individuals and families affected by autism. Depending on the date and time you choose to tee off, breakfast, lunch or dinner may be included for golfers and their guests. Golf instructors and pros may also be available to the players at some of the event locations. Those who do not plan on playing can join players at the event celebrations, auctions and award ceremonies. Advanced reservations are required for each event. Here’s a list of upcoming events:

Lepiarz holds most of the pitching records in Start baseball history. “I chose Lourdes because it is a new program and a great opportunity for me,” Lepiarz said. “It’s exciting to be part of the building process of a team and it will be exciting how far we take it.”

“We are very excited to have Drew join our program,” Coach Ham said. “He has a strong left arm and will hopefully contribute right away for us.” Hall has chosen to study business management while Lepiarz has chosen to study education at Lourdes with a concentration in social studies. With the additions of Hall and Lepiarz, the Lourdes baseball team now has 30 members. They are scheduled to begin play next spring.
