Have a Summer Barbecue - Picnic - Cookout survival plan ready to go when those weekend events hit your schedule. Just because we are outdoors, those chips and dips do not have less calories. Try not to go to a picnic hungry. And if you know the menu ahead of time, plan your picnic in your daily planner. One hot dog and roll with toppings can easily be a full meal's worth of calories. All this being said, enjoy the SUMMER!!67298
Whatever your condition, whatever the prognosis, empower yourself with information and research. As a cancer patient given 60/40 odds against 5 year survival 14 years ago I know that by taking control and doing my own research made a huge difference in the fact that I am still here.
At the time of diagnosis of 2nd stage breast cancer I requested and received all files and test results and proceeded to investigate and understand my disease. I am proud to say that although I have had 2 recurrences and developed a new cancer, I am still here and reasonably healthy otherwise.
