(StatePoint) Nearly 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain -- that’s more than the number of people living with heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined. Often experienced as pain that lasts over three to six months, chronic pain is a serious and debilitating condition that, if left unmanaged, can negatively impact nearly every aspect of your life.
(NAPSI)—For many cancer patients, getting the care they require can mean the financial hardship of traveling to a treatment facility far from home for weeks or months at a time.

In fact, as of 2012, there were an estimated 13.7 million cancer survivors in the United States alone.

(NAPSI)—School will be out soon, and many families will be getting ready for summer vacations, camps and other fun activities.

(NAPSI)—While there has been tremendous progress in the fight against breast cancer, one in eight women can expect to be diagnosed with the disease at some time in her life—but there is some good news:
(NAPSI)—As mothers, we tend to put everyone else first. Our children and our family are often our #1 priorities—we do whatever is necessary to make sure their needs are met, often times pushing our own needs to the side, including those things we need to do to make sure we keep ourselves healthy. As we celebrate the coming of spring and the joy of Mother’s Day, we take time to reflect on what motherhood means, and now is the perfect time to think about steps you can take to better ensure that you will be there for your children, to guide and celebrate them along the way for years to come.
