Jefferson Regional Medical Center will join in the worldwide celebration of life during the 24th annual National Cancer Survivors Day® on Sunday, June 5. The day is set aside to pay tribute to those who are living active, productive lives with their disease and to recognize the contributions of families, friends, researchers and healthcare providers who support them.
According to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, a “survivor” is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of his or her life.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sometimes called a brain attack, a stroke occurs when a clot blocks the blood supply to the brain or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts.
Obesity is associated with many health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, depression and more.
