Don’t just wear a ribbon. Get screened. Help someone who is dealing with it. (Offer to run errands, mow their lawn or bring them a casserole)
Raise money for research.
Not only do we need to raise money for research, but we need to learn from the research that has already been done! Studies overwhelmingly show that it matters what we do to our bodies. We’ve all heard of somebody’s neighbor’s great uncle who ate a pound of bacon every day, never exercised a day in his life, and lived to be a hundred. (Of course, the number of us who have seen him is about the same as the number of people who have seen Bigfoot.)
While there might be some who have bodies can take that kind of abuse, the vast majority of us don’t. We need to do all we can to keep them as healthy as possible. Whether it is cancer, heart disease, or something else, treating our bodies right makes a difference.
Doing everything right doesn’t guarantee that we won’t have health problems, but it does make our bodies stronger than they would be otherwise so they are better prepared for the fight.
If you smoke, quit. Smoking is the most important preventable cause of premature death in the United States according to the American Heart Association. –
