The Savvy Path

    Focusing on Preventable Causes of Breast Cancer

    We all want the same thing

    On January 12th, 2016 in his final State of the Union address, President Obama announced a national "moon shot" effort to cure cancer, stating, “For the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the family we can still save, let’s make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.”  You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone unwilling to get behind that cause. You’re a statistical anomaly if your life hasn’t, in some way, been touched by the disease – especially breast cancer. 

    • Excluding nonmelanoma skin cancers, breast cancer tops the charts with more than 234,000 new cases expected in the United States in 2015 (1), accounting for just under 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women (2).
    • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer in the United States and the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide(3).
    • One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime(3).

    Here’s another staggering statistic that may be a little less ingrained in your mind:

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
