  • All-Star Survivor: Cathy Rodgers

    10.02.2014 / Blog Posts Breast Cancer Awareness

    On January 16, 2014, Cathy Rodgers attended her doctor's appointment for her annual mammogram, which was followed up with an ultrasound and a biopsy.

    Then on January 29, 2014, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

    She soon learned she had triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma in her right breast. Only 15% of breast cancers are triple negative, meaning that they are not receptive to any hormone therapy to keep the cancer from coming back.

    Cathy grew in her faith that day. 

    A year befor her diagnosis, in January 2013, Cathy's yearly mammogram revealed a 5mm spot. She had ... Read More

  • All-Star Survivor: Cheryl McRae

    10.01.2014 / Blog Posts Breast Cancer Awareness Health and Wellness

    In November 2013, Cheryl McRae attended her doctor's appointment for her annual mammogram.

    Six months later, in April 2014, she learned that her mammogram had resulted in a pre-cancer finding. Cheryl's breast cancer was caught early, during stage 1, because she has taken the time every year to attend a well women's check-up and mammogram.

    When asked what being an "All-Star Survivor" means to her: "I am a survivor of breast cancer and I am so grateful to have had my regular annual well women’s check and mammogram. For this reason, doctors were able to find ... Read More

  • Commonwealth Orthopaedics: Core Strengthening

    09.29.2014 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Your core muscles – the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen – are your body’s powerhouse. Strong abdominal and back muscles are essential for doing everyday tasks, such as housework, lifting a 20-pound toddler or putting away groceries.  In addition, a strong core helps reduce back pain, improve athletic performance, enhance balance and stability, and correct poor posture.

    To build a strong core you need to exercise a variety of muscles from your hips to your shoulders. Most core-strengthening exercises can be done at home with no equipment. Balance training is a great way to improve core strength ... Read More
