    Guest Speaker

    2014 - Sarah Cawley and Dr. Jame Abraham

    Sarah Cawley is a 33 year old wife and mother of two little girls, who is currently undergoing treatment for Stage Two Breast Cancer at the Cleveland Clinic. As an avid runner and otherwise healthy young mom, the diagnosis came as quite a shock. Never losing hope, she continues to fight and is now dedicated to advocating for Breast Cancer awareness.

    Dr. Jame Abraham, MD, FACP is the Director of the Breast Medical Oncology Program at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute and Co-Director of the Multi-disciplinary Breast Cancer Program.  Dr. Abraham earned his medical degree from Calicut Medical College in India and completed his residency at the University Of Connecticut School Of Medicine.  After his residency, Dr. Abraham went on to complete his Fellowship in Medical Oncology at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Dr. Abraham’s research interest is focused on developing new approaches for early detection, diagnosis and more effective targeted therapies for breast cancer while understanding long-term side effects such as “chemo brain”. With the support of two Department of Defense grants, he has developed preclinical, clinical and genomic data regarding serious side effects in patients receiving chemotherapy.  He currently holds two patents; one for risk stratification of patients with breast cancer and another for novel breast cancer imaging.

    Prior to joining Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Abraham was the Professor of Medicine and Section Chief of Hematology Oncology at West Virginia University.  He was the first Bonnie Wells Wilson Distinguished Professor and Eminent Scholar in breast cancer research and has been the recipient of several, distinguished awards including: U.S. News Top Doctor, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, 2010-2012, 2010 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Clinical Medicine by West Virginia University, 2006 Clinician of the Year,  2009 Award from the President of India, 2007 Outstanding Faculty Award by the Department of Medicine of West Virginia University, and 2007 Volunteer of the Year by American Cancer Society.

    2013 - Tiffany Bauman Cantelupe
    We had Tiffany Baumann Cantelupe speak. Ms Cantelupe has traveled the world working as a model, actress, and singer. She was born in Medina and is a former Miss Ohio.

    In July, 2012, Tiffany felt a lump that was unfamiliar. After 2 weeks of debating, she saw her doctor. Tests revealed she had an aggressive, fast-moving type of cancer that spread to her lymph nodes.

    She was 35 years old at the time of her diagnosis and had 2 young children. Tiffany received treatment including a year-long chemotherapy treatment program and surgery.


    2012 & 2011
    We had guest speaker Mrs. Ellen Perez. Mrs. Perez, a mother of a BR player, is a triple negative breast cancer survivor diagnosed at age 37. For those not familiar with those terms it is a particularly lethal form of breast cancer that typically strikes young patients. They call triple negative the triple threat due to the fact that they really can't figure it out yet. We were honored to have her share her story with the event participants - 2011 Speech
