For the majority of Americans, “the most wonderful time of the year” is also the most stressful season. In a recent survey, 90 percent of respondents said they stressed over at least one aspect of the holidays.

(BPT) - While breast cancer awareness has greatly increased over the last two decades, a recent national survey found that women and families are not talking enough about breast health. Eighty-seven percent of women said they could talk to their daughters about anything, but less than half said they have actually talked with their daughters about breast cancer.
