Ohhh my mum loved this song! It was played at her funeral but beyond that i have MANY happy memories of doing the Irish quick step with her to this....in fact we danced to this in my kitchen on the day we decided which chemo treatment my mum was to have....we loved to dance with each other and laugh always through everything....I'm working on being happy when I hear this song...sometimes I even manage it!
Since releasing my book in 2010, “With the Snap of a Glove” I have continued to be an advocate for Men’s health when it comes to dealing with Prostate Cancer. I have spoken about the importance of awareness and how it is directly tied to early detection of Prostate Cancer. I have developed a new Prostate Cancer awareness campaign video that that is now available. The video is focused on young people and using their ability to raise awareness about Prostate Cancer by simply having a talk with someone in their lives. I hope this will take education and awareness to a new generation. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this in more detail please feel free to contact me. My goal is to have as many families see this video as possible with the hope that it might even save one life. This is not a Canadian or US issue, it is a Global men’s health issue and needs to be talked about.
A friend lent me a copy of the video Forks over Knives. I feel like I need to do anything I can do to control the spread of cancer in my body. Surprise that sugar feeds cancer, chicken "feeds" cancer cells, milk causes an allergic reaction in everybody's body that actually draws calcium OUT of the bone. This movie includes "The China Study". What do I eat then? Eat nothing "that had a mother". Yes that includes fish, eggs, cheese too. Learn to eat Vegan and love the taste of food. Not just grass, delicious warm dishes that include sweet potatoes, lots of vegetables, fresh fruits, yummy flavors. Everything tastes better. We were the only country in the world that drank another animal's milk. All animal fats have cholesterol. No plant fats have cholesterol. Watch this yourself. You will think twice before you eat or buy certain foods. VERY hard to get a vegan meal in most restaurants and the good Vegan restaurants in NYC are packed all day.
