This is Ali. She has cancer. Doesn’t look like it, does it? Actually, her mammograms didn’t look like it, either. Ali has had a rough week, but you’d never know it by looking at her or talking with her. When I asked her over the weekend what we could do for her, Ali requested that we spread the word to our community about the importance of self breast examinations. Like in Ali’s case, sometimes mammograms and MRI’s don’t catch the cancer, but a self-exam would. Ali wants all of us, who are so driven toward optimal health and wellness, to take care of ourselves in this way. So, please do yourself a favor and check yourself out. Meanwhile, join me in thinking good thoughts for Ali and her recovery. And next time you struggle during a workout, remember that Ali is doing them with bandages around her torso half the time. Be well, Ali!
