Stand Up To Cancer

Received this in an email and thought I should share:

Let's ring in the New Year right, with resolutions to keep cancer away:

1)Stop Smoking Now - And if you don't smoke, NEVER START.
2)Eat right: Add anti cancer food to your diet like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. And cut back on red meat!
3)Manage your stress - relax, meditate, learn to let go, and EXERCISE.
4)Know your family history - and if you don't know, learn more, ask questions, pass on to others what you find out.
5)Get examined: Have a mammogram, a prostate exam, get a colonoscopy, have your skin examined. Because what you don't know can hurt you.
6)Join an advocacy group - no one should feel alone.
7)Stand up and be heard: Write to congress to demand that they make cancer a national priority. Your voice matters more than you know.
8)Join The Stand at su2c.org and tell your story.
9)Launch a Star at The Constellation at su2c.org in honor, or in memory, of someone you love.

For more things you can do, go to standup2cancer.org. And because giving makes a body feel so good, donate what you can while you're there.

This is where the end of cancer begins. When together we rise as one. When we stand up strong, stand up brave, stand up undeniable. When we Stand Up To Cancer.
