~ More HOPE and RESOURCES from Nanci’s book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

What a crazy day with the government shut-down and all the things it affects from coast to coast!  Despite that, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  Ladies and men please do your breast exams and get your mammograms. Although women are more readily diagnosed, about 1,500 men are diagnosed each year.

But this month has even more significant for me than just a month that marks awareness of cancer. That’s because on October 25, 2003, I went for my mammogram and a tumor was discovered. Depending on how you count survivor years — date of diagnosis or date of treatment, this month marks 10 years ago that my tumor was found. So next month I’m officially a 10-year breast cancer survivor!

Some Good Advice

Do your monthly self-breast exams and get your Pap test. Besides that, don’t smoke, get your rest, eat a well-balanced diet with lots of colorful fruits and vegetables, and stay away from sugar! While researchers are not saying there’s a correlation between stress and cancer, it does play a part in weakening your immune system. Therefore, find healthy ways to reduce your stress like walking, gardening, or cycling. These obviously are just a few examples. The point is, get regular exercise and develop healthy attitudes towards the challenges that come your way in life.

Today with all the treatments and drugs available, cancer isn’t the death sentence it used to be. If you are experiencing pain or feel something just isn’t right, see you doctor right away.
