Cancer is an illness that many people unfornately get and it can be a deadly illness. Cancer not only affects the person who has cancer, but it also affects that person's family and friends. I would not wish cancer upon my worst enemy. I, Alex Cardinale have felt the effects of cancer as my late great Nonnie Lucy aka Italian for Grandma passed away 3 years ago due to cancer. I also have lost my great grandpa to cancer and know friends who've lost gramdparents and family members to cancer.
October is Cancer Awareness Month (specifically Breast) but it's good to raise awareness about all types of cancer, so join Alex Cardinale and us at the AVN as we pay our respects to those with cancer.

I recently saw a presentation about German New Medicine and wow, it was fascinating!
In essence, GNM depicts disease as brought on by a shock for which we are totally unprepared. If we can prepare ourselves for a shocking event, we will not become ill. Disease, including cancer is thus a special biological response to an unusual situation, and when the ‘shock’ situation is resolved, the body sets about returning to normality.
This of course is a very simplified version of the concept, and it gets even more interesting from here...Join me as I interview Dr. Chris Lowthert, a highly regarded German New Medicine practicioner to talk about:
• What is the difference between a biological conflict vs. psychological conflict?
• Understanding the true nature of the healing symptoms from a GNM perspective
• The unique role that GNM practictioners play in healing, and why it's so important to learn these concepts early in our life journey
Be sure to call in LIVE to ask your questions.

Patrice says "In November 2009, after an 8 and a half years with the disease, my mother gained her wings and joined her oldest sister and her mom (both cancer victims) in heaven. With one maternal aunt surviving cancer, I saw no choice but to find out all I could of this horrible disease and how to keep it from affecting me and my daughters.
As my mother’s last gift to me at her final doctors visit, she donated to me her DNA, so that any testing needed could be done. WHAT A WONDERFUL GIFT! In January 2010, I started my first doctor visits. I spoke with my mom’s Oncologist regarding how in depth the cancer was and what my chances were at the time of possibly getting cancer. I spoke to specialist about testing for certain genes that my family might have . I finally decided something more HAD to be done. The doctor stated with my chances of getting cancer, that it would be best for me to have testing every six months or I could go ahead and have a double mastectomy and reconstruction. That weighed heavily on me at first but with thoughts going back to all my mom and aunts had gone through, it became an easy decision….I was having surgery! I spoke to mom’s Oncologist who recommended the perfect person to perform my Mastectomy and a great friend who had already been through the procedure introduced me to my plastic surgeon. Together, we had the perfect team! This was something I had to do not just for me but for my future – my kids. I wanted to be around for them."
Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
Reproductive risk factors
• Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
• Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
• Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
Other risk factors
• Getting older.
• A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
• A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
• Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
• Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
• Being overweight, especially after menopause.
Can’t afford a mammogram?
If you have a low income or do not haveinsurance and are between the ages of
40 and 64, you may qualify for a free or
low-cost mammogram through CDC’s
National Breast and Cervical Cancer
Early Detection Program. To learn more,

When Dr. Janet Roseman read the transcript of Joan of Arc's trials, she realized that this beloved heroine had much to offer those fighting cancer--women patients especially. In addition to her fierce faith, the fifteenth-century teenager faced her incredible challenges with remarkable fortitude, moxie, and even humor. In her book, If Joan of Arc Had Cancer: Finding Courage, Faith, and Healing from History's Most Inspirational Woman Warrior, Dr. Roseman uses Joan's words and experiences to help readers access their own innate courage and reclaim their personal power. It is not just a book for those with or who have experienced cancer, but it also offers support for family and friends, therapists, doctors, nurses, and anyone affected by a loved one's diagnosis. Tune in as we discuss the importance of compassion in the healing equation, how to maintain personal power in the face of serious illness, how to create an "army of support" for getting through a health crisis, and more!
Janet Lynn Roseman, PhD, teaches at Nova Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine, has created hospital compassionate care programs, and offers complementary therapy workshops to oncology patients. She specializes in spirituality and medicine, and created the Sidney Project in Spirituality and Medicine and Compassionate Care™, a unique model in medical education that reminds physician residents of the sacredness of their profession and the importance of creating caring environments for both patients and physicians. Dr. Roseman is also a Reiki master, dance therapist, and intuitive healer. She has been published in a variety of medical journals and lives in Boca Raton, FL.
