TalentFIT: Stand Up To Cancer

Tomorrow, Friday, September 8, is Stand Up To Cancer Day. Started in 2007, this is observed annually on the second Friday in September to honor those who have been affected by the disease. An annual fundraising event is held in conjunction with this day as is a national TV event. Funds raised by the Stand Up To Cancer organization go toward research. You can donate at http://www.standuptocancer.org./.

According to the American Cancer Society, one in two men and one in three women will suffer from cancer in their lifetime.

Cancers don’t develop overnight. There are ways you can help prevent some cancers by being mindful of the foods you eat and by making some simple lifestyle changes, like walking or standing more and sitting less.

Here is some advice from Reader’s Digest for 30 Simple Ways You Can Prevent Cancer.

Of course, you should always check with your doctor if you have any concerns. Don’t put off that annual checkup or getting preventive screening. It can help save your life.
