Thread of Thanks-If you know me personally or follow me you know that the last few years have been trying to say the least. 2017-Wife #breastcancer & dbl mastectomy. 2018 10 year old Stage 4 #braincancer. Just as life gets back to normal enter #COVID19 1/10
To say that #ComicBooks helped save my life would not be overstating fact at all. They were my escape from the horrifying reality of my life. I read @JeffLemire #DoctorStar in the @RMHMN with no idea of the story content. I bawled-purging pain from my soul 2/10
The number of @TomKingTK books I have read in waiting rooms at @MayoClinic, @AveraHealth and @SanfordHealth are too many to count. As poison pumped into my son, as they took my wife from me for 10 hours of surgery I read tear stained pages to escape the antiseptic void 3/10

Truly grateful to announce I have been promoted to Associate Professor at @MonashBiol 😊

I would like to thank my team & former team members, my collaborators, mentors, colleagues for the support and feedback @BBM_Wong and @RobertB_R, & my boss @OBryanMoira for the push to apply
Inspired by @jane_bourke_phd I would like to share how I got here because I look up to many & constantly think I am not doing 'well' enough. What I learned over the years is that on paper things look much more glamorous than they are (I call it the Instagram of academia) 1/
I came from a developing country (#Brazil) where research is not valued and there is little $ available. But I had amazing lecturers and teachers, and amazing opportunities to do research since I was an undergrad. This resulted in 5 papers prior to my PhD & helped me a lot 2/

Thanks to all my colleagues for voting. This is an interesting question in breast oncology, and practice varies quite a bit (As you can see from the poll)
#medtwitter #breastcancer #OncoAlert #chemo #courtingcontroversy

There is interest in getting rid of anthracyclines from adjuvant chemotherapy of breast cancer, due to long-term concerns of heart failure and secondary leukemia. The ABC meta-analysis seemed to concur that taxane+anthracycline (TaxAC) beats 6TC by a small margin
An unplanned subgroup analysis revealed interaction with number of nodes in HR+ patients, with no benefit in HR+ N0 disease.

1. The sleeping giant is slowly awakening to the corruption that is enslaving us all.

Once this giant has fully awoken we shall be unstoppable.

Public awakening is their greatest fear.

2. It’s essential that #WeThePeople understand how #Corruption in the pharmaceutical industry has a stronghold on people.

#QAnon @POTUS @realDonaldTrump
3. This long & detailed thread will shine light on corruption in the vaccine and cancer industry.

These are complicated & touchy parts of the #DeepState rabbithole for obvious reasons but facing the #Truth is very important.

The truth shall set everyone #free.
