FEATURE TOPIC:
CANCER: BEFORE, DURING, AFTER

The exceptionally good news is that overall cancer death rates continue to decrease in men, women, and children for all major racial and ethnic groups, according to the latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1974-2014 (a product of the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute).

The report finds that death rates during the period 2010 to 2014 decreased for 11 of the 16 most common types of cancer in men, and for 11 of the 18 most common types of cancer in women, including lung, colorectal, female breast, and prostate cancers.

A spokesperson for the report noted that “tobacco-related cancers have low survival rates . . . and every state in the nation has an adult obesity prevalence of 20 percent or more”—and obesity is itself a risk factor for cancer.

In the August 2017 issue of Health&Healing, we invite our health-care experts to share their wisdom and experiences in diagnosing and treating three aspects of cancer: what kind of behaviors are best suited, and most likely, to prevent the manifestation of cancer in any of its forms; if cancer occurs, what are the most effective treatment protocols; and, post-cancer treatment, what are the most effective and physical, mental and emotional regimens most likely to achieve and maintain robust levels of good health.

You are invited to be part of the conversation.

OTHER VOICES, OTHER CHOICES ARTICLES

A special section of the publication—Other Voices, Other Choices—provides a forum for area practitioners to submit articles related to the feature topic. In this section, we invite health care/health service providers who have a special connection to the feature topic to write articles about their work.

Many area health care providers deal specifically--some exclusively--with cancer, and we hope they will contribute to the conversation about this pervasive, complex disease. However, it is also true that there are many other providers whose expertise is an important part of  dealing with cancer—especially when considering the “before” and “after.” Nutritionists, holistic practitioners, counselors, and coaches—for example—have valuable advice related to the lifestyle choices that help prevent cancer. Likewise, they, as well as physical therapists, massage therapists, and mental health pratitioners, engage with cancer survivors to help them regain health and remain cancer-free.

In the August issue of Health&Healing, we will explore the complicated journey of cancer patients and invite the many healers who help them along their paths to share their perspectives.

To join the conversation, see information about the Other Voices, Other Choices section in Advertising in Health&Healing, and contact us at 919-967-6802.
