April is National Cancer Control Month

  
  
  
National Cancer Control Month

Although there are several other months during the year that are dedicated to the awareness of various types of cancer, National Cancer Control Month is a great time to look deeper into ways to prevent cancer and its treatment complications. The goal of National Cancer Control Month is for Americans to lead healthy and productive lives, whether or not they’ve been through cancer.


The Gift of "Pretty"

  
  
  
describe the image

Several years ago, my hair had gotten pretty long. Mid-back, get-caught-between-my-back-and-the-chair, tie-it-in-a-knot, long. It was time for a change, and I figured I would take off a few inches. Then I heard about Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that makes real-hair wigs for children who need them. At the time, Locks of Love required 11 inches of hair in order to make a donation (now only 10"!). So I walked into the salon, sat down, pulled my hair into a ponytail, and gave them thirteen. It was freeing and gratifying. I felt lit up inside at being able to give this gift, and I got a great haircut at the same time.

May is Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, and that’s a great reminder to give yourself a once over, help your loved ones do the same, and make an appointment with your dermatologist if you see anything of concern or simply if you haven’t been in a while.


Eight Most Preventable Cancers

  
  
  

Eight Most Preventable Cancers

According to the American Cancer Society, one third of American women and half of American men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer over the course of their lives. Only five to ten percent of cancer cases, however, are directly attributed to a genetic source. Of course, some non-genetic factors are outside of our control: chemical exposure, second-hand smoke, carcinogens in the workplace, and so on. But there are still a great many things we can do to limit our cancer risks – eat right, exercise, use sun protection, get regular checkups, avoid known carcinogens (cigarettes and pollution) – and  the first among them is the easiest: be informed.
