Hiya MomsRising members! It was such a pleasure to meet MomRising’s own Donna Norton in DC last week with Secretary Sebelius and to be able to connect with all you fabulous moms out there by video. Being a mom is one of the toughest, but most important and rewarding jobs a gal can have. And since moms make most of the household decisions from what food to buy to which doctors to go to, it is vital they are educated about the safest products out there for themselves and their families. That’s why we need the MomsRising community!
BPA free? 100% organic? All natural? Knowing which products to buy can be an extremely overwhelming process, which is why Cancer Schmancer is diving deep into a campaign called TRASH CANCER. With our partners, we’ll put in simple terms the things in our lives we should get rid of that have been linked to not only an increased cancer risk, but obesity, autism and other developmental issues.
In a world such as ours, it’s so important that moms have the most up-to-date information and resources on what’s out there, what to avoid and what to seek out so being a proactive mom is even easier. And in this hectic 21st century we live in today, who doesn’t need a “how-to” guide on developing a healthy lifestyle?
MomsRising members, please join me in taking the steps to revolutionize our health history and crafting a much needed "mindshift" for generations to come. Let’s continue to support each other, educate ourselves and come together to build a healthy nation! Please visit www.cancerschmancer.org for the most up-to-date information on how to be a 21st century medical consumer rather than a passive patient. You can also keep track of me and my advocacy, and our efforts to make sure no woman ever dies from late-stage diagnosis of cancer.
