It's Summertime!

We've pulled together some resources to make your summer safer and more enjoyable!

Looking to Take a Vacation?
Just because you are going through cancer treatment doesn't mean you can't enjoy a summer vacation. With a little bit of homework and planning, your vacation can be the trip of a lifetime and help relieve some of the stress you may be having related to your cancer treatment. Watch the replay of the "Cancer Goes to the Beach" webinar!

Sun Safetysun-safety
There have been some good changes in the way sun protection products are marketed in the US, making them more consumer friendly. Learn all you need to know to be sun-safe this summer!


Nutrition Nuggets
Summer is blueberry season and there is nothing like fresh blueberries to top off a bowl of cereal, bake in a pie, or just enjoy on their own. Anthocyanins, the blue pigments from the blueberry skin, are powerful antioxidants with potential cancer preventing power. In a study comparing 40 fruits and vegetables, blueberries had the highest antioxidant capacity, mostly due to the anthocyanin. Frozen blueberries are just as nutritious, so enjoy the health benefits year round! Try this antioxidant packed summer snack.
