Letitia Wright | Backstory | Caribbean Beat Magazine

Letitia Wright takes pride in the enthusiastic response of people back home in Guyana, even if it is a bit overwhelming at times. “I rep Guyana wherever I go,” she says. “I’m really happy that people are supporting . . . I just hope that it continues to inspire people — it’s an honour to do that for my country.”

Growing up in Guyana, Letitia Wright never imagined a Hollywood career. But after a string of stage and TV roles and early recognition of her talent, her casting in the blockbuster movie Black Panther was the break every actor hopes for, says Caroline Taylor

Originally from Guyana, Nadia Jabour, after living in Canada for 25 years, returned to Guyana in 1994 and then settled in Saint Lucia in 2009, where she turned her jewelry-making hobby into a home business.

Necessity, it's said to be the mother of invention, and when financial constraints necessitated that Nadia Jabour make, rather than purchase jewelry and accessories for her daughters, little did she know her inventions would lead to a fledgling business and living her dream.

What is triple negative breast cancer?
-
Breast cancer cells usually employ different mechanisms to fuel their growth and proliferation. Among the common markers for breast cancer, estrogen (ER), progesterone (PR), and the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER 2) are the markers found in most cases.
-
Estrogen and progesterone are hormones, and cases where cancer cells produce abnormally high levels of these hormones are termed ER or PR positive breast cancer. Similarly most breast cancer cells are positive for HER2.
-
There are better targeted treatment options for patients whose breast cancer cells exhibit the ER, PR and HER2 receptors, as hormone and gene therapy can be successful in blocking those receptors and thus preventing growth and proliferation of the cancer cells.
-
In triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), those common hormone markers are absent, and so targeted therapy is usually not a treatment option. Most patients with TNBC cancer usually receive chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but the 5 year survival rate is extremely low.
-
Recently, a promising treatment for TNBC was proposed and became FDA approved. The immuno-oncology drug Tecentriq, can be used to treat metastatic TNBC or cases where the cancer cells express a particular surface marker ‘PD-L1’. This treatment is used in combination with the chemotherapy agent paclitaxel. Tecentriq targets your immune system and propels it to fight against and kill the cancer cells.
-
As with all cancer treatment, there are always side effects to consider, but I’m pleased that patients with this form of breast cancer now have a form of targeted therapy treatment.

Today we celebrate all of the amazing, hard working, rock star women of the world! But let’s not stop today; we must continue to encourage, embrace and inspire each other as we travel through the daily paths of life. It’s also important to celebrate ourselves. Women are the strong backbone of their families and society.
