Stay Ahead of Cancer

Detecting cancer early increases the chances that treatment will be successful. Alongside preventive screenings like mammograms, a healthy lifestyle (eating right and exercising daily) can help lower your risk for some cancers. 

Here are some tips: 
  • Protect Your Skin: Wear sunscreen daily with an SPF of at least 15 to prevent skin cancer. 
  • Go green: Eat more vegetables to get more fiber that can help reduce your risk for colon cancer.
  • Celebrate smartly: Drink alcohol in moderation.
