Music Therapy & Sound Healing
by Debbie Drinkard-Govum
Symbols are powerful images of our deepest feelings and can provide enormous comfort during challenging times. I have always paid attention to symbols in my life but never more so than when I had breast cancer...
Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Debbie shares her personal story of courage through breast cancer and explains how three symbols gave her comfort during this challenging time.

Why is it that when some people are given a diagnosis of terminal cancer, they look into the eyes of death, get up from their bed, and walk the other way? And, why do other patients embrace their fear and fold themselves into the cold embrace of death?...
Editor's Note: I wait for pomegranates ALL YEAR LONG. They are probably in my top three favorite foods of all time and this just looks like a wonderful recipe to add to my ever growing list of foods I try to serve at Thanksgiving to get my family converted to a healthier and cleaner way of eating. Butternut squash is full of beta-carotene and when roasted becomes very savory sweet. I believe that the pomegranates, which are rumored to be the HIGHEST levels of anti-oxidants of all fruits will pair vary nicely with the squash and crisp greens while protecting your heart and brain against disease and cancer. Also full of fiber and vitamin C this dish lends a helping hand to the digestive and immune systems as well.

Recently, I was in Colorado Springs raising money for breast cancer at Rally For The Cure. We were playing tennis, and all of the women came up and asked, "Kathy, how do I get my arms in shape?" The answer: Kettlebells!
Here's why: kettlebells engage your entire body in a few fluid motions, so it's efficient! You'll burn calories, and work your arms, legs, core and butt all in one motion. With one kettlebell, you can sculpt and define your entire body.

50 to 60 years ago... Breast Cancer wasn't the big concern that many of us face today. It was still common to have stay at home mom's preparing most of the meals, hustle and bustle wasn't the same as it is today, Fast food chain restaurants weren't dominating every street corner offering the dollar deal, and under wire bras weren't the big rave...
