Heather's Health Connection

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so here is your first reminder to do your October self check.  I know I have a hard time remembering myself... so when I saw this, I downloaded it right away!

The non-profit Keep A Breast teamed up with verynice studio and The Rare Studios  to re-think the role of smart phones in breast cancer awareness and prevention. The FREE app provides a visual step-by-step overview of the breast self-exam and allows you to easily schedule an automatic monthly reminder with a pop-up text reminder.

With 40% of diagnosed breast cancers being self-detected, the iPhone and Android compatible app aims to educate young people about the importance of breast self-examination and its timing. The monthly reminder helps the user perform their breast self-exam at the same time every month, at the recommended time, right after your monthly cycle. Because of the normal hormonal fluctuations in a woman’s body that affect breast tissue, it is important to select the same time every month so you will be able to distinguish between normal change and something that feels different.

This app can be downloaded from the iTunes and Google Play stores. Both verynice and The Rare Studio helped make the app possible by graciously contributing over 150 hours of pro-bono service to the organization, allowing us to offer this life-changing – and perhaps life-saving app- free to the public.

Keys for a Successful Marriage

I will be the first to admit that my marriage is FAR from perfect. We've had our share of struggles, fights, and even separation. Marriage is really hard, especially when one or both of you are headstrong. I definitely am. I like things a certain way and I have a hard time dealing with things when they are not "how I would do them".  Then throw kids, money stress, job stress, and other things in the sometimes feels like it's impossible.

A lot of people have the same complaints about their marriage- "he doesn't listen", "he doesn't help out enough", "she doesn't pay attention to me", "she's not fun anymore". The list can go on and on. The problem most times is, it's really easy to pick apart what our spouse's issues are, but it's hard to take a look in that mirror and admit that we are probably part of the problem.

Marriage counselors can really help be a neutral party when you're trying to figure things out.....but a lot of times they are financially out of reach for couples. So here are the seven keys to a successful marriage from a marriage counselor that are trending online right now. See if you agree and if you are having struggles, try a few of these to see if they help ;)

Pet of the Week 

Meet Oscar. He is an Egyptian Baladi breed.  Oscar is about nine month of age and did come to us all the way from Egypt. Also known as street dogs, Baladi dogs are often dismissed as difficult to train. However, learning to adapt to living on the streets has made them very instinctive and intelligent. As a result of their experiences on Egypt’s streets, they are often shy of people and therefore require extra love and gentleness when first dealing with them. In the end, kindness will make them love you and be loyal to you like no other dog would be. Read more about him here.
