We Can Take Action To Detect Many Cancers That Have Early Indicators
Hi, Did you know that the National Cancer Institute predicts that by the end of 2015, there will be over 1.5 million new reported cases of cancer in the United States alone? Unfortunately, half a million of those diagnosed will lose their battle with the disease. We know by now that living a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious food, exercising and kicking destructive habits like smoking can all be factors in preventing cancer. Additionally, there are many things we can be doing to better detect the various forms of this illness sooner, without relying on infrequent doctor’s office visits. With this in mind, I created a list of resources detailing how to identify symptoms that should encourage us to immediately visit a physician for further testing. Because this valuable information is potentially lifesaving, I strongly encourage you to share this list with your audience (perhaps here: http://wnywomen.com/health-and-inspiration.html?). Additionally, I’d be happy to write a research-based article for you to share with your site visitors – no charge, as this is a passion project that is very personal to me! 10 Cancer Symptoms Men Shouldn’t Ignore This well-rounded list applies to both men and women on issues you should bring to your doctor’s attention immediately, as they could potentially be signs of cancer. What Causes Cancer? 34 Cancer Risk Calculators To help increase awareness and aid in early detection, following is a list of 34 cancer risk calculators for common types of cancer.

Although women are diagnosed more often than men, it’s still a good idea for both sexes to be aware of any sudden changes in breast tissue.

Fact or Fiction: Can Dogs Smell Cancer? Further demonstrating their loyalty as man’s best friend, your dog may be able to detect early signs of cancer. This article explains what signs to keep an eye out for, and how to decipher your dog’s urgent message. I sincerely appreciate your support in spreading awareness on this critical topic! I believe you will find these resources to be as beneficial as I do. If that is not the case, please send me an e-mail, and I will be sure to remove you from my future contact efforts.
As Parents, How Do We Know When To Trust Our Instincts?
These days, things seem to be so much more complex than they were when we were growing up. Now more than ever, our children are exposed to much more volatile material at such young ages. They are also facing more pressures and temptations by their peers, and social media, not to mention the difficult enough struggle that most teens will wrestle through, once hitting puberty. At this junction, a great number of our youth unfortunately fall in with the wrong crowd, &/or begin to experiment with the use of drugs & alcohol.
If parents primarily, but let's add to that family members, teachers, and mentors, who speak into the lives of the children we are sending off to school today; were armed & educated on recognizing the warning signs that something was amiss, early intervention could successfully get your teens and pre-teens back on track.
September! Time to Get Back in the Groove!
I’ve always loved the sound of the word September, and in Spanish it has an even smoother flourish to it! (i.e., Sep-tem-bray!) The word flows forth—like a gentle stream flowing into a greater, deeper river. And who hasn’t loved Earth, Wind & Fire’s long-term hit rendition of “September” --- Ba de ya, say, do you remember? Yes! I do remember—as the gentle stream of summer flows into the deeper, faster pace of the autumn river—as fall approaches, as school resumes, I do remember—it is time to move into the groove, and get back in the flow! September presents the timely nudge for me to find my grit again…to figure out how I’m going to make these last few months of 2015 become all that I want them to be! To revisit my goals and envision accomplishments. To make the Plan. To become reinvigorated! How will I make these months purposeful? How will I reignite my passion? How will I work my revised plan? I have to ask myself, again, what would I be doing if I were living at my full-out best? (Therein is September’s promise.) I know that there is a natural pattern to successful living. September calls us back from a bit of the “summer pause” to the next set of action steps. Goals and Focus are the keys. It was Aristotle who said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” September calls us to look closely at our patterns of living (the good and the bad) and to make the necessary adjustments. So here we go! We are right back to refocusing and reprioritizing because we’re thinking it through, and we are working our plan! Back in the groove! When you can consciously seek out that particular mental attitude which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive and in the groove, you’ll also hear that inner voice rejoicing and saying, , ‘This is the real me, and this is my real work.” Septembers make us savvy--moving us forward with our Lights On! September Savvy: · Reconnect with nature. Enjoy long walks and crisp autumn air. · Revisit and adjust your Professional and Personal Goals. · Remember to Live by authentic principles---Be Who You Are Meant to Be! · Choose a higher path…..Live at your full-out best! · Enjoy the colors of the season…be vibrant!
