FOR WOMEN ............................... Your
guide to understanding BREAST CANCER ....
Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer in women
in the United States (other then skin cancer). Even through it is discussed
freely on television, in magazines, and in news papers, many women do
not know the facts about breast cancer. In fact, a 1998 survey showed
that only 67% of American women 40 and older had a mammogram within the
previous two years. Why should you know about breast cancer? Because
it can save your life. The key to surviving breast cancer is early detection
and treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, when breast
cancer is comfined to the breast, the 5-year relative survival rate is
close to 100%. The early detection of breast cancer increases your chance
of survival and increases treatment options.
Know Risk Factors for Breast Cancer:
Cancer Society Guidelines For the early Detection of Breast Cancer,
* Age 40 and older: screening mammogram and breast examination by a
health care professional every year
* Ages 20 to 39: clinical breast examination by a health care professional
every 3 years
* Age 20 and older: breast self-examination every month
What else can you do ? Please Call for more information about breast
cancer screening and education, 1-
DEPRESSION...IT TAKES COURAGE TO ASK FOR HELP....
What makes depression different from the blues? Depression
is a serious medical condition that involves the body, mood and throughts.
It affects how you eat and sleep. It alters your self
preception, it changes the way you think and feel. Men with a depressive
illness can't just "snap out of it" or pull themselves together', because
depression isn't the samae as a passing mood. Left untreated, depression
may last for weeks, months, or years at a time.
The facts about men and depression. An estimated six million men in
the United States have a depressive disorder-major depression, dysthymia
(chronic, less severe depression), or bipolar disorder (manic-depressive
illness)-every year. Although these illnesses aare highly treatable,
many men do not recognize, acknowledge, or seek help for their depression.
While both men and women may develop the standard symptoms of depression,
they often experience depression differently and may have different ways
of coping. Men may be more willing to report fatigue, irritability, loss
of interest in work or hobbies, and sleep disturbances rather than feeling
of sadness, worthlessness, aand excessive guilt, which are commonly associated
with depression in women. Also tragically, four times as many men as
women die by suicide, even though women make more suicide attempts during
their lives. If you are feeling depressed, tell someone about your symptoms.
The truth is, depression is a real and treatable illness.

to help your teen or preteen quit smoking..........
If your teenager is smoking or chewing tobacco it will
be up to him or her to quit. But you can help. Here's how:
Try and avoid threats and ultimatums. Find out why your child is smoking.
Your preteen may want to be accepted by a peer group, or he or she might
want your attention. Plus adolescence alone can be stressful. Show your
interest in a non threatening way. Ask a few questions and determine
why your teen is smoking and what changes can made in his or her life
to help your child stop.
If you smoke quit. If you did smoke and have already quit, talk to your
child about your experience. Personalize the little problems around
smoking and the challenge of quitting. Quitting for a day is easy, Quitting
for a life is a bit tougher, be supportive.
Both you and your teen need to prepare for the mood swings and crankiness that
can come with nicotine withdrawal, offer your teen the 5 D's to get through
the tough times,
* DELAY:The craving will eventually go away.
* DEEP BREATH: Take a few calming deep breaths.
* DRINK WATER: It will flush out the chemicals.
* DO SOMETHING ELSE: Finf a new habit.
* DISCUSS: Talk about your throughts and feelings.
Parenting can mean prevention. Those battling chronic disease at your
state health department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention struggle every day with some alarming problems. Every day,
6,00 youth try cigarettes for the first time - and one out of three smokers
will die from the addiction. Preteens who report they regularly eat meals,
follow a family calendar, and discuss free-time activities with their
parents are less likely to smoke. And more likely to live longer, healthier
