Join me today as we talk to Paulla Miller and Jan James in the 2nd part of our 4 part series on breast cancer. Jan James is a breast cancer survivor and founder of the Provision Project, a non-profit organization with the mission to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer.
Soon after Jan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, she founded a private online breast cancer support group which now numbers almost 600 women in nine countries. Through that support group, Jan and her leadership team have become intimately aware of the ways in which breast cancer can impact a woman's life, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and financially. The Provision Project wants to help women who face tough financial decisions as they are actively being treated for breast cancer. I know you will be inspired, educated, and moved as you hear about these courageous women, and the overcoming spirit they continue to express, and live out!

If you’re not getting an oral cancer screening ask for one, if you’re not telling your patients they’re getting one, start talking!

According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 3 of people will develop cancer of some sort in their lifetime. The cause of most diseases including cancer remains unknown. Treatment is therefore of the symptoms of diseases rather than the causes of the disease itself. Unsurprising, 75% of all visits to the doctor involve symptoms of illness which are based on excessive or chronic stress. Whilst medication helps in the short term, current scientific research indicates that unless chronic stress is addressed in a timely manner, further diseases are inevitably created. Ignoring the psychosocial and emotional aspects that are impacted on the individuals life produce an ever revolving cycle of mental instability that impacts on the person's ability to function within the normal realms of well-being. Therefore the need to take responsibility for our health and well-being has never been so important. In this segment of The NLP View Radio Show host, Donna Blinston, RGN talks to Marion Dias, about her best-selling book Why Did the Cancer Disappear: Become Free From Cancer & Promote Health.
