Jump for Jamie 2016

Jump for Jamie 2016

Jamie Gilmore, founder and inspiration behind the non-profit Jamie’s Hope, continues to battle a rare form of cancer, Acinic Cell Carcinoma. After suffering through the extreme side-effects of chemotherapy for almost 3 years, she decided to completely change her life through diet, exercise, meditation and extreme lifestyle modification. The difference has been nothing short of amazing!! Although she still battles this stage 4 disease, her scans show extremely promising results! As she fights to live, she has chosen to take life by the horns and inspire others to do the same. She blogs daily in hopes that she can encourage others to live life to the fullest and JUMP into living a healthy, well-rounded life. Lifestyle Matters; dedicated to educating others on the importance of cancer prevention through diet & nutrition, physical & emotional wellness and stress management.

Focus On Hope

Focus On Hope

Please Remember & Share in case you know someone who would like to take advantage of the Jamie’s Hope – Focus on Hope Program: Focus On Hope is a year round program where those battling cancer can request to capture a special moment in their journey. Watching your hair fall out can be devastating. Like Jamie and Debbie, many choose to shave their head, rather than allowing cancer and chemo to dictate when they lost their hair. You can choose to take control of this part of your journey, and allow us to help you document this most memorable event. This is a complimentary service! If you would like to capture and embrace this time in your life, please join us for an intimate, complimentary photoshoot where makeup, hair & photography professionals have joined together to offer their services free of charge to help create a great experience for you. To take advantage of this opportunity or donate your professional services, please email us at photoshoot@jamieshope.org #‎JamiesHope‬ ‪#‎FocusOnHope‬ ‪#‎EndCancer‬ ‪#‎Beauty‬ ‪#‎Photoshoot‬ Please consider donating to Jamie’s Hope so we can continue to help cancer patients heart emoticon heart emoticon...

Parabens

Parabens

I am sure everybody has heard of parabens, but what are they? I heard the word for years, but just didn’t care to listen. But guess what, a life with cancer has me listening now!!! For some of you lucky individuals that have never been affected by cancer or don’t care, you’re welcome to keep ingesting and using products loaded with chemicals, but you may want to start hoping and praying for good health. With the cancer statistics these days the odds aren’t in anybody’s favor!!! Parabens (an endocrine-disrupting chemical with a structure similar to estrogen) is used as a common preservative to prevent microbes from growing. They can be found in processed meats, pastries, make-up, face wash, toiletries, shampoos, and even the contraceptive pill. According to the the American Chemical Society parabens are in about 85% of our personal care products… SCARY! A recent study even showed parabens can spur the growth in certain types of breast cancer cells. So what to do? Read labels, read labels, read labels!!! Look for products that are “paraben free.” OR you can choose to do nothing like I did for 20 years and hope for the best, but that didn’t work out so well for me smile emoticon Common Names to Avoid: parabens, methyparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, isopropylparaben, or any ingredients ending in –paraben So today’s project: clean house. Oh… Em… Gee. I couldn’t believe how many products I was previously using or had in guest bathrooms. Seriously…. was shocked and I didn’t even look in the pantry! I was even more shocked to learn Weight Watchers and Archer Farms even...
Potassium Bromate

Potassium Bromate

Did you know that potassium bromate is banned in the United Kingdom, China, Brazil, Peru and many other European countries, BUT NOT THE UNITED STATES? I found that quite interesting and since I have been fighting cancer for over 20 years, I thought it was about time I learn what I have been eating most of my life. So today I bring you a little information on potassium bromate, another food additive that makes the EWG’s “Dirty Dozen.” Considering I previously consumed a diet high in baked goods, processed food and fast food, my guess is I have likely consumed tons of potassium bromate in my lifetime. So what is potassium bromate anyways??? Bromated flour contains potassium bromate, an oxidizing agent commonly used in commercial baking to promote rising, improve and strengthen dough. In the U.S., the FDA has encouraged bakers to voluntarily stop using bromated flour, but shouldn’t we be doing more? At least California is doing something… they are the only state to have potassium bromate on their Proposition 65 list (which warns residents of danger associated with the chemical by requiring a cancer warning on their labels). Thank you California!! Only 49 more states to go unsure emoticon You can also read more at the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) which found that this chemical appears to be “formally identified” as causing cancer. I also included a link with the awesome Proposition 65 list for those interested in avoiding potentially dangerous and toxic chemicals. If that’s not convincing enough, potassium bromate is labeled as a category 2B carcinogen by the International Agency for Research...

Some great news on Bob Allen!

Some great news on Bob Allen!

Some great news on Bob Allen! ‪#‎KickCancersAss‬ ‪#‎GetWellBob‬: “Once again, thanks again for your many thoughts and prayers, as I’m coming down the home stretch of this cage match with lymphoma.All signs are pointing to lymphoma tapping out. Got great news late last week. I’m in total remission! In a few weeks I check into MD Anderson for a stem cell transplant. The type of lymphoma I had has a tendency to recur, but the transplant gives me a complete new immune system, which could likely be a complete cure. I’m ready to get in there to finish this off. I have been overwhelmed and grateful for y’all reaching out with positive thoughts and prayers.That along with a great team of doctors at MDA, along with belief that this won’t beat me has done wonders. Had a great Thanksgiving with my daughter, son in law and two amazing grandkids coming in, along with the rest of family & new extended family.Thanks again for caring, & I’ll be seeing you soon.” Photo below is from our Masquerade for a Cure event program...
