Happy Tuesday! Some may not know, but this week is National Minority Cancer Awareness Week (April 5-11, 2015). As you follow our journeys through life expressed on our blog, you all will learn that my husband was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. I’m encouraging everyone to pay attention to your body and what it tells you. Be kind to it because it is your temple and God only gave us ONE! As it’s stated in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” (NIV) Get your annual check-ups, followup on your lab results, and ask all the questions you need, even if you think they’re stupid, crazy or too many. Get a second opinion. There are too many resources available to not be in tip top shape! Do your research. The American Cancer Society among other organizations offer great insight and tools to walk you through symptoms you may be experiencing, give you more knowledge in addition to what your medical professional has offered you, potential alternatives rather than traditional medicine.
The more you know, the more you realize how much you don’t know. The less you know, the more you think you know.
