World Cancer Day

I’m a cancer survivor — three times over. So, stuff like #WorldCancerDay matter to me. And, I hope it matters to you too. The truth is, if you live long enough, you’ll more than likely be touched by cancer. I know. I know. Harsh, right? But true. As we speak, cancer is on the precipice of being the number one cause of death. Fear not, though. Because of medical and technological advances, many cancers are preventable. If you get cancer early in life, you’re often likely to survive. Things do get dicey when you get older. But, don’t worry; there’s hope. Here’s what you can do:

Through diet, weight and stress management, exercise, and by quitting smoking, you can prevent most cancers. Prioritize taking care of your #body and #mind.

Many cancers are curable in stage one: go to your doctor and get age appropriate screenings.

By employing comprehensive and integrated treatments, more people are able to survive cancer today than 30 years ago. The disease doesn’t have to be a death sentence.

Love yourself enough to do everything in your power to prevent or survive cancer.
