October marks another Breast Cancer Awareness annual campaign, I’m pretty sure all of us are aware of BC.
I was aware in 1983 when my mom developed breast cancer at 48.
I was aware in 2002 when my sister developed breast cancer at 46.
We are aware that statics states 1 out of every 8 women in the US will get breast cancer.
We are aware that statics states 1 out of every 3 persons in the US will get some type of cancer.
The American Cancer Society Research Document states in Cancer Facts and Figures 2014:
How Many People Are Expected to Die of Cancer This Year?
“In 2014, about 585,720 Americans are expected to die of cancer, almost 1,600 people per day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths”.
We hear about, make plans and decisions on early detection, genetic testing and prophylactic procedures.
We are told we’ve made progress . . . in what? Since 1952, is it early detection and treatment modalities?
“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein
What progress have we made in prevention?
The American Cancer Society Research Document in Facts and Figures 2014 states:
“A substantial proportion of cancers could be prevented. All cancers caused by cigarette smoking and heavy use of alcohol could be prevented completely. In 2014, almost 176,000 of the estimated 585,720 cancer deaths will be caused by tobacco use. In addition, the World Cancer Research Fund has estimated that up to one-third of the cancer cases that occur in economically developed countries like the US are related to overweight or obesity, physical inactivity, and/or poor nutrition, and thus could also be prevented”. (bold mine)
Now that you have the facts what are you willing to do about it?
What’s your plan to stay cancer free?
Are you in remission . . .? What is your plan to stay in remission?
Are you satisfied with just knowing and supporting organizations that will continue to “race for the cure”?
If that’s you, it’s ok.
But, if you are the type of person that is about preventing cancer and maintaining remission, let’s talk, I can help you. Let’s not become another static.
