In addition to all of the wonderful
pink products available this month (some of which we’ve recently featured
of Shopping), here is a really great resource for families grappling with
breast cancer. Breast Cancer: The Path of Wellness
& Healing is an informative and uplifting DVD
that educates and supports women with breast cancer, along with their friends,
family and loved ones. —
In this two-part series, medical experts and cancer
survivors give in-depth interviews on their personal and professional
experiences. Some of the country’s most notable physicians and wellness
specialists provide insights into risk, detection, diagnosis and treatment,
while cancer survivors and activists lend their own testimonials. Contributors
include Christina Applegate, Rosanna Arquette, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Sheryl Crow,
Melissa Etheridge, Dr. Harvey Karp, Dr. Soram Khalsa, Dr. Susan Love, Olivia
Newton-John, Dr. Marisa Weiss and more.
Created by two-time breast cancer
survivor Joyce Ostin and bestselling DVD
director/producer Nina Montée Karp, the Breast Cancer DVDs
combine wisdom from traditional and complementary medicine along with
practical advice for navigating the day-to-day struggles. From how to create the best medical team to help your cause,
to talking about breast cancer with your children, this DVD
set is an invaluable tool for managing the physical, emotional and
psychological aspects of living with cancer.
Considering about 1 in every 8 women is diagnosed with
invasive breast cancer at some time in their lives, the importance of such a resource
as this cannot be overstated. Watch the DVDs for your mothers, your sisters,
your aunts and your friends. But, most importantly, watch it for yourself.
Proceeds from sales
will directly benefit premiere breast cancer philanthropies, including breastcancer.org, the world’s #1 source
of free medical advice about breast cancer, Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation, and the UCLA-Revlon Breast Cancer Research Center.
