As the holiday season is upon us, WAPC has created a holiday ornament that we are selling as a fundraiser for our 2011 efforts. This small token can speak volumes as a gift for the supportive woman in your life, to show a prostate cancer patient that you care, or just to show your support of prostate cancer awareness. Families are fortunate that women can, and do, play an essential role in the prevention, early detection,research, advocacy, support, and caregiving for the prostate cancer patients they love. Show them that you recognize their encouragement and support by giving them a special ornament. See pictures and purchase online at: http://www.womenagainstprostatecancer.org/donate/holidayornament/
All proceeds will support WAPC’s 2011 efforts to make a difference in the lives of families effected by prostate cancer.
There are several things that one can control – one of which is our thoughts about the circumstances we are dealing with at the present time. Stress is, in many cases, as an inevitable by-product of life’s less than pleasant circumstances. How we deal with stress is, truly up to us.
As the growing body of research shows the powerful effects that our mind have on our body, it’s important to find an appropriate way to access those emotions, release them, and reap the positive benefits on the immune system. It is also important to incorporate a complete program that improves upon the assets that are already part of their body – our thoughts being one of many.
Learn to bring forth the elements within your body and mind that will help you with the stress levels you face while helping you reduce their ill effects.
Last week, the Los Angeles Movember launch event had downtown fire fighters out in full force. Their goal is to challenge a total of 100 firehouses in the greater LA area to join the cause in 2010 and, of course, to start follicularly-stimulated discussions about the scope and severity of the prostate cancer problem. At Davidson College in South Carolina, students will kick off Movember on November 1st with participants wearing suits and ties on campus to focus on the movement. In Westwood, members of the UCLA Greek system are also turning in their razors for a month. The list goes on.
Fun? Definitely. Frivilous? Certainly not. They are all helping to save lives.
In ten countries around the globe, men will soon be letting their hair out to support awareness and raise crucial funds for finding better treatments and cures for this disease that affects more than 16 million men and families around the world. Since 2004, Mo’ bros and Mo’ sistas have raised more than $40 million dollars to support research for men’s diseases. What’s more, in the U.S. they are changing the way prostate cancer is viewed. The Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG are the beneficiaries of Movember efforts in the States. In its first three years in the U.S., Movember raised $2.3 million to support prostate cancer research through PCF. This year’s goal is $2 million. That’s a whole lotta mo’s and mo’ola.
Adam Garone is a founder of this unique movement that first started growing in Australia. He and his global team have engaged and motivated an entire generation of young men to tear down the taboos around prostate cancer and educate their contemporaries and their families about the second most deadly cancer for American men, after lung cancer. In 2010, it is estimated that 218,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. and more than 32,000 American men will die from it. By 2015, the number of new U.S. cases each year could rise above 300,000.
Literally and figuratively, Movember is definitely living up to it tagline: Changing the Face of Men’s Health. The teaching moment starts the moment anyone asks a participant, “What’s that on your face?”
The annual Movember campaign is fun, quirky and purposeful. It’s also proof that one should never be too quick to dismiss a good idea that might arise on a weekend afternoon while having a few beers with your mates. Interested? More information on Movember can be found at www.Movember.com.
Love unites us all in our efforts to end cancer. Medicine provides the all-important clinical tools to treat cancer, but love bolsters the heart and spirit to help us rise above the disease.
An elderly couple walked into the lobby of the Mayo Clinic for a checkup and spotted a piano. They’ve been married for 62 years and he’ll be 90 this year. Check out this impromptu performance. We are only as old as we feel, it’s all attitude. Enjoy! They certainly do!
A surprise for the new bride on her wedding day. All of her close friends and family rehearsed for a month in secret, leading up to the reception. What is lacked in polish, is hopefully made up for in joy and love. Live for the moment & love life! To Life!
