How I Harnessed My Own Cancer Diagnosis to Help Kids with Cancer and Their Parents


By Hernâni Oliveira

This TEDMED Partner Blog Post comes to you from TEDMED 2020 Partner Astellas and Hernâni Oliveira. TEDMED is excited to partner with Astellas specifically around their Astellas Oncology C³ (Changing Cancer Care) Prize, which sparks new, innovative ways of caring for cancer patients and their caregivers. Hernâni Oliveira is the 2017 Grand Prize winner of the C³ Prize. His winning idea was a two-part virtual reality app to help solve common issues faced by children with cancer and their parents around education and physical engagement. Learn more about his award-winning idea here.

We know that the TEDMED Community is filled with patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals, each with ideas that have the power to improve the lives of those impacted by cancer. We encourage you to submit your idea and apply to the C³ Prize by July 15. The winners will join us at TEDMED 2020, March 2-4 in Boston, MA.


My cancer journey started when I was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 27. Like most people, I was shocked to hear the infamous three words—“You have cancer”— but having studied cancer as a molecular oncologist, it struck me as ironic and terrifying that now, I would experience this disease as a patient, too.

I’ve never been the type to sulk about unfortunate events. I’ve always enjoyed taking on challenges, learning about subjects unfamiliar to me, and helping others understand it as well through effective communication. So, when I saw people who struggled to find accurate information about cancer, I decided to pursue a Ph.D. in health education to help people gain access to and understand healthcare information. It was during my second year of studies that I was diagnosed with cancer.

I was fierce, like all who are battling cancer and those who are caring for their loved ones with cancer. Every day brought a different challenge, but I focused all of my time and energy in between the treatments on developing an idea that I had been working on during my studies that I hadn’t yet had time to bring to life: an app to help children with cancer and their parents.

My idea was a two-part virtual reality app to help solve common issues faced by children with cancer and their parents around education and physical engagement. For the children, I wanted to create a video game for mobile devices that tells the story of a child who fights cancer as a superhero and educates the children about cancer, as well as promoting exercise and reducing anxiety during medical examinations. For the parents and caregivers, I wanted to create an educational tool so they could learn more about cancer and ways to support their children.

While working on my idea in 2017, I learned about the Astellas Oncology  Prize—an opportunity that came to change my life. The annual challenge was created in 2016 by Astellas to find and fund the best non-treatment ideas to improve cancer care for patients, caregivers, and their loved ones. I was so glad to find the  Prize because I felt like it empowered the public by widening the access to knowledge and tools to help those affected by cancer. It also helped solidify my belief that as a society, we need to look beyond treatments to truly care for people impacted by cancer.

I wholeheartedly believed—and still do—in my project, fittingly titled “HOPE,” and the impact it could have on so many lives touched by cancer. Still, I was surprised to find out I was the Grand Prize winner of the 2017  Prize. It was humbling and awe-inspiring all in one. What means the most to me is that winning the  Prize has fueled my idea and allowed me to have a real impact on people living with cancer.

Since winning the  Prize, I’ve developed a second prototype for the video game for children with cancer and validated the application for parents and caregivers in hospitals. Thanks to the  Prize and the countless hours of hard work, the final product will be available to the Portuguese public by the end of 2019. I’m also hoping to launch the application internationally and increase its impact on a global scale.

Beyond the funds I was awarded from the  Prize, I have had the opportunity to connect with a new network of people passionate about improving healthcare and am now in the process of working to bring educational programs into schools worldwide. With the support of the local community in Porto, Portugal, I’m developing an educational project to help improve cancer survivors’ reintegration process at schools. Thus far, more than 1,300 children and teachers have been trained, and we have won the best presentation award at the 4th European Health Literacy Conference.

Additionally, I was able to help establish a partnership between Astellas Portugal and University of Porto through the  Prize, which led to the creation of a national think tank focused on health literacy and innovation. The organization successfully hosted an event in May with 60 healthcare and communications professionals, patients, and caregivers, who worked together to find innovative solutions to create and foster health literate ecosystems.

Now in its fourth year, the Astellas Oncology  Prize is a truly amazing platform for anyone to showcase their idea to change cancer care and build meaningful relationships with innovators from all over the U.S. and the world. This year, the  Prize is looking for emerging and established ideas in the following categories: Cancer Care Journey, Cancer Health Disparities, and Cancer Survivorship. It will award up to $200,000 in total grants and resources, including a chance to connect with other healthcare innovators at TEDMED 2020.

I am so grateful to have been involved with the program as a winner in 2017 and now, as a judge, for the second year in a row. The beauty of the  Prize is that anyone with an idea to improve cancer care can apply—the idea can be big or small, emerging or established. What’s important is the ideas’ feasibility, originality, creativity, potential impact, and the applicant’s vision for how to reach people who might benefit from their idea—because innovative and informative healthcare tools are just as impactful for the cancer journey.

So, I encourage anyone—whether you’re a cancer patient, survivor or caregiver; a researcher, inventor or entrepreneur; a teacher, communicator, or even a musician—with an idea that could have an impact on cancer care to submit their ideas today at www.C3Prize.com. Applications are open until July 15.

Hernâni Oliveira is the founder and CEO of healthcare marketing agency BRIGHT. Previously, Hernâni was a molecular oncologist and researcher.

TEDMED 2020 Theme Announced & Early Bird Registration Now Open

We’re thrilled to share the theme for TEDMED 2020: Make Way For Wonder.

With this announcement we also officially open registration for TEDMED 2020 at a special Early Bird rate!  Join our passionate and diverse community this March 2-4 at an exciting new home in Boston – and for a limited time, we’re offering a special early registration rate of $1,000 off the registration fee.

TEDMED 2020: Make Way For Wonder


“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.” — Neil Armstrong


The earliest philosophers regarded “wonder” as the foundational emotion that compels humans to explore, to learn, and to seek answers to life’s fundamental questions. Wonder – about our lives, our bodies, and our world – fuels an intense passion for learning. Indeed, “philosophia,” translated literally, means “love of wisdom.” As Plato described it: “Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

But, what is Wonder?

It’s the feeling we get when experiencing the beauty of new life as it’s born into the world. It’s the euphoria we feel from unlocking secrets in the intricacies of our genetic makeup, or the curiosity that provokes us to expand the capabilities of the human brain. It’s the insatiable inquisitiveness that drives a researcher toward an astonishing discovery that saves millions of lives around the world. It’s the awe felt when standing at a precipice looking down at the Grand Canyon. Or the humbling acknowledgement of our place in an incomprehensibly vast universe. Perhaps the most awe-inspiring thing of all is that this feeling of wonder is firmly grounded in solid realities.

Today, we live in a world of sudden and surprising accomplishments, an era of astonishing possibilities, and an age of ongoing achievements happening in every single field. Let’s embrace the wonder in each step that humanity takes forward.

Now is the time for us to make way for wonder. It’s time we intentionally cultivate our sense of awe and our desire for new knowledge. It’s time to celebrate all we’re discovering and all that is yet to be discovered. It’s time to revel in our innocence, our capacity for delight, joy, and amazement.

When we allow ourselves time to muse and to marvel, to be energized with wonder, great advancements will follow. When we emerge from our silos, we have the opportunity to broaden our laser-like focus. When we step back and take time to look deeper, we can see with a wider perspective.

The results can be transformative. New doors are opened. New horizons reveal themselves. New possibilities suddenly leap from wild speculation, to well-grounded theory, to working reality.

At TEDMED 2020, we will connect with an invisible force that has been propelling humanity forward for millennia. Join us as we experience the power and possibilities that come to us when we make way for wonder.

Announcing the TEDMED 2020 Editorial Advisory Board

Planning for TEDMED 2020 is well underway, and we’re excited to share even more details about the Boston gathering over the coming months. Next week begins an important step in the process: the 2020 TEDMED Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) will meet to collaborate on the design and curation of the Stage Program.

The EAB—a group of leading experts in fields spanning the spectrum of health and medicine—plays a key role in helping us to identify important and timely nominations for the TEDMED Stage. The participation of this generous group is another example of how Community is at the heart of everything we do—we truly could not do the work we do without the people who support and believe in our mission to create a healthier world.

This year’s EAB represents organizations that intersect all areas of health and medicine, including technology, philanthropy, academia, medical journalism, clinical care, and much more. We are proud of the EAB’s depth and diversity of knowledge, as these are the qualities that help ensure the TEDMED Stage Program takes on its credible, multi-disciplinary, and unique perspective.

We welcome these passionate individuals to this year’s EAB, and we hope you’ll take the time get to know them below. We are both delighted and honored to announce them here:

Adam Goulburn:
Carl June who is engineering our own immune system to cure the incurable”

 

 

Lucy Kalanithi:
Yoko Sen! Anyone who’s ever set foot in a hospital can see (hear!) why her work matters.”

 

 

Kafui Dzirasa:
“The National Academic of Medicine and American Association of Medical Colleges has raised alarm regarding the paucity of black men in medicine. The Nation’s chief physician, Jerome Adams, is an African American man. I am excited to discover how his background and personal experiences have shaped his unique perspectives on the nation’s health crises including the opioid epidemic and addiction.”

Jeff Karp:
“I am most excited about the energy and passion in the room! It’s totally infectious and so wonderful to connect with the movers and shakers in healthcare and hear lots of different perspectives.”

What Does Chaos+Clarity Mean to You?

 

At TEDMED this year, we are excited to explore the power of the interplay between Chaos and Clarity. Typically, clarity is thought to emerge from chaos, but we see chaos and clarity as symbionts, two expressions of the same force that propel us toward new discovery. Sometimes clarity is hidden inside of chaos, waiting to be discovered. Other times, the clearest of solutions can yield a chaos of new questions requiring new investigation.

The relationship between chaos and clarity is different in each of our lives, and we want to know how the TEDMED Community experiences this relationship. That’s why we’re asking each of our Partners, Speakers, Innovators, Delegates, and our entire community, to finish the following “equation”:

“To me, Chaos+Clarity=_____________.”

To help everyone connect with the theme, we’re asking a few warmup questions:

  • How has the interplay between Chaos+Clarity inspired you and your work?
  • What are you most clear about? What in your life is chaotic?
  • Where do you experience chaos and clarity the most?
  • How would you describe the relationship between Chaos+Clarity?

And, we kicked things off by reaching out to members of our 2018 Editorial Advisory Board (EAB), to see what chaos+clarity means to them. You can see what some had to say below.

Now, we want to hear from you!
Complete the Chaos+Clarity equation and tag us on Twitter (@TEDMED), and on Facebook and Instagram (@TEDMEDcommunity). Be creative – there’s no right or wrong answer to this equation (and good news, you don’t even have to show your work). Don’t forget to use #TEDMED!


Adam Goulburn:
Chaos+Clarity=  “The tension that drives progress and innovation.”


Alicia Jackson:
Chaos+Clarity=  “New insights to propel humanity forward.”

Giles Newton:
Chaos+Clarity=  “Hearing that one idea that makes you sit up and go ‘wow’!”

Harith Rajagopalan:
Chaos+Clarity=  “Superior understanding of complex problems.”

Jeff Karp:
Chaos+Clarity=  “My Life.”


Kafui Dzirasa:
Chaos+Clarity=  “Passion*Purpose^2/Time”


Lucy Kalanithi:
Chaos+Clarity=  “Parenting a 4-year-old.”


Nadja Oertelt:
Chaos+Clarity=  “Integrating the complexity of big healthcare problems into pragmatic solutions, not denying it.”

Roxanne Khamsi
Chaos+Clarity= “The duality that medicine can be simple and complex at the same time.”

Sara Gorman:
Chaos+Clarity=  “The necessary, sometimes maddening process of researching and learning new things in science and health.”

Udaya Patnaik:
Chaos+Clarity=  “The recipe for innovation! Swim in the Chaos (data, noise, seemingly irrelevant ephemera, and positively weird phenomena) to find Clarity (inspiration, order, patterns, insight, understanding, and meaning).”

 

We look forward to seeing you soon in Palm Springs, CA. If you plan on joining us, be sure to register soon, time is running out!

Speakers for TEDMED 2018

While many of us have personal goals for how to stay healthy, we’re all exposed to health challenges that extend beyond the individual and impact society on a grander scale. At TEDMED, we’ll hear from speakers working to affect positive health changes on a societal level in an effort to empower individuals, build healthier mindsets, and strengthen our communities.

We’ll learn about social movements fighting to protect vulnerable laborers from the predatory conditions that are often common in US agriculture. We’ll also tackle the roots of sweeping epidemics that wreak havoc on our communities in ways that can be quite subtle, and in other ways that are not so subtle. We’ll find out how communities in Puerto Rico are banding together to rebound from the devastation of Hurricane Maria. We’ll confront the uncomfortable inevitability of our own deaths to consider how to get the most from life, especially in the face of serious illness. And we’ll examine the intersection of our physical and digital lives to take a novel look at the human body reclaimed from the virtual world.

Don’t miss TEDMED 2018—be there to see these and other talks, live, this November in Palm Springs, CA. Space is limited so register today!

New Speakers Announced for TEDMED 2018

We all want to make healthier decisions and to avoid unhealthy habits, yet for some reason, most of us find it frustratingly difficult to turn these thoughts into action. Ever wonder why? This year at TEDMED, we’ll dive into the reasons why changing behavior can be so difficult and get actionable insights into why humans act the way we do.

For example, we’ll explore the unexpected role that personal relationships play in acts of mass violence, and we’ll assess an uneasy reality that’s having a very intimate impact on adolescent behavior. We’ll be exposed to important perspectives, helping us to see society and healthcare through the eyes of marginalized populations and envision a more inclusive society. We’ll also learn how low-cost, sustainable innovation is changing the future for newborns throughout Africa. And, have you ever wondered what healthier care sounds like? We’ll find out together at TEDMED.

Announcing the TEDMED 2018 Theme: Chaos+Clarity

Today, our Editorial Advisory Board gathers in San Francisco for it’s second meeting in the last two weeks. These are the first of several meetings and conversations where we’ll to shape this year’s program and curate the ideas and thought-leaders that will take the stage.

As we immerse ourselves in the design of TEDMED 2018, we’re thrilled to be able to share this year’s event theme: Chaos+Clarity.

Typically, clarity is thought to emerge from chaos. But as we think about these conditions, we’re inspired by their entangled nature, each acting as provocateurs in their own unique ways. We see them as being engaged in an ongoing conversation. Chaos is the question. Clarity is the answer. The more chaos we embrace, the more clarity we can discover.

While chaos is often messy and may appear unscientific, it’s actually the friend of the scientific method. It’s the place where breakthroughs are made. Where the magic happens. And where clarity is found. Clarity, on the other hand, is hidden inside of chaos, and sometimes vice versa, just waiting to be discovered if we know how and where to look.

Join us for TEDMED 2018, and we’ll explore and embrace the power of Chaos+Clarity in advancing science, global public health, and medical innovation across a wide range of topics. Together, we’ll explore new developments in neuroprosthetics; the global epidemic of chronic disease; how to design our way to better health outcomes; the relationship between immigration and health; the science of aging; social isolation in the age of social media; gender equity and harassment in science and medicine: the trauma of violence and mass casualty; the power of resilience; and much more.

Be part of a community shining a spotlight on the inspiration that lives at the intersection of Chaos+Clarity.

We look forward to seeing you at TEDMED 2018.
