October 2 is LIVESTRONG Day, when we honor those who have fought the Evil Cancer Monster.
Mommy has lost both friends and family to Cancer.
Kitties, make sure your Humans do all they can to stay healthy, so they can take care of us!
1. Make (and KEEP) appointments for cancer screening: mammograms, colonoscopies, skin inspection, prostate exams, etc.
This saved our Grandpaw's life.
2. Quit all tobacco products.
Cigarettes killed Mommy's Grandpa.
3. Maintain a healthy weight and eat a good diet full of fruits and vegetables.
This is what we hope will keep Mommy and Daddy around a long time.
4. Maintain a positive attitude, laugh, and enjoy life.
This is where we Cats can help!
We CAN lick this Evil Disease!

Note from Mommy: An excellent book that traces the history of cancer and its treatment: "The Emperor of all Maladies", by Siddhartha Mukherjee. Not at all dry or boring, and the science is explained simply in layman's terms.
