Happy New Year

In this new year, let's all find what's most beautiful in ourselves, our lives, our hearts, and pass it on. Let's believe at least one impossible thing every day -- then let's make it absolutely possible. Let's refuse the words no, can't, don't, give up. Let's spread the word that cancer can be defeated. Let's remember those we've lost and loved, and those still in the fight. And let's make a difference every day. When we stand up to cancer.

Let's ring in the New Year right, with resolutions to keep cancer away:

1.Stop Smoking Now - And if you don't smoke, NEVER START.
2.Eat right: Add anti cancer food to your diet like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. And cut back on red meat!
3.Manage your stress - relax, meditate, learn to let go, and EXERCISE.
4.Know your family history - and if you don't know, learn more, ask questions, pass on to others what you find out.
5.Get examined: Have a mammogram, a prostate exam, get a colonoscopy, have your skin examined. Because what you don't know can hurt you.
6. Encourage your friends to join an advocacy group(like this group) - no one should feel alone.
7. Stand up and be heard: Write to house of assembly to demand that they make cancer a national priority. Your voice matters more than you know.
8.Support the Stand by participating in our activities.
9.Launch a Star at The Constellation at STAND UP TO CANCER NAIJA discussion board in honor, or in memory, of someone you love.
10.For more things you can do, go to www.standuptocancernaija.c And because giving makes a body feel so good, call us to donate what you can.

This is where the end of cancer begins. When together we rise as one. When we stand up strong, stand up brave, stand up undeniable. When we Stand Up To Cancer Naija.
