Welcome to October.
31 days of drowning in countless shades of pink while enduring a seemingly inescapable barrage of awareness messages.
You know what I’m talking about.
Some of you have heard this from me on countless occasions, but for the uninitiated, I’ll go on record.
We don’t need more pink anything (I hate pink, btw).
We don’t need more awareness.
We do need actionable behaviors aimed at prevention.
I’ve made it my mission to blog for the entire month of October about the power of nutrition and fitness in fighting the breast cancer beast.
Let’s begin with a question, shall we?
What if we could reduce the incidence of breast cancer from one in eight women to one in eight hundred women through the use of proven preventive lifestyle behaviors, and then, at the time of diagnosis, connect those women to a nutrition and fitness expert who would create programs designed to support their individual treatment plan to encourage optimal treatment outcomes, strong recovery, and reduced risk of recurrence?
