Fitness Facts: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 04, 2017 / by / 0 Comment

By Connie Colbert Director, Canyon Health and Wellness Clinic Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. Each week this month I will highlight important information about breast cancer. I will share the facts about we know, the warning signs, prevention and how to get involved in spreading awareness. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved. You can start by participating in the American Cancer Society Making Strides against breast cancer event on October 28th at Tempe Beach Park.  Join the Grand Canyon University team!  Walk with us or make a donation to support the cause! Or come to our kickoff event! Date: October 10, 2017 Time: 4-6p.m. Location: […]

I have often been asked, “How do you know if it’s depression or just the blues?”  The reality is that almost everyone has felt “down in the dumps” at times – we’ve all experienced a bad day, or even a bad week!  The fact is that brief periods of feeling “blue” are ways we describe feelings of sadness or melancholy.  Brief periods of time like this are usually caused by life events that leave us feeling discouraged, “flat,” lacking energy, and even momentarily paralyzed.  Sadness, loneliness, grief and disappointment, among others, are resulting emotions from life events – everything from a broken date to the death of a loved one or beloved pet.  And yet, even though we may experience tremendous emotional distress during that time, there is a part of us that knows, with time, we will bounce back and rejoin life.
