Ovarian Cancer – The Silent Killer

Posted by on Jun 9, 2015 in Blog, Happy Together

Did you know that according to the American Cancer Society, about 21,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year, and 14,000 will die of the disease? Ovarian cancer has a higher mortality rate than many other cancers because it has very few physical symptoms, which makes it challenging to detect in its early stages. Currently, there are no screening tests that are approved for ovarian cancer detection for women at conventional risk for the disease. Recognize the signs/symptoms of ovarian cancer Bloating/increase in abdominal size Pelvic/abdominal pain Frequently urinating/bladder changesIf these symptoms persist for two or more weeks, consult your physician.

Know the Signs of Dyslexia

Posted by on May 8, 2015 in Blog, Happy Together

Did you know that one in five students, or 15-20% of the population, have a language-based learning disability with dyslexia being the most common? Significant numbers of students with dyslexia go undiagnosed and their symptoms unaddressed. Dyslexia is sort of an invisible problem. It’s not an illness like chicken pox or a cold. Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child’s symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right. Some children don’t seem to struggle with early reading and writing. But later on, they have trouble with complex language skills, such as grammar, reading comprehension, and more in-depth writing.Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard...

As the winter blues come to an end, it’s time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. It seems like an eternity since we were able to be outdoors for an extended period of time without being bundled up like we were on an Arctic adventure is finally coming to an end. We all have that “itch” to get out and enjoy the first blast of warmth that Mother Nature is providing us, whether it’s getting out and picking up all the sticks that the snow/ice/wind brought down or just taking a stroll through the neighborhood and seeing the neighbors because it seems like a lifetime since you’ve seen them outdoors. There are many options to enjoy the warmth of springtime. You can enjoy the small things such as just driving with the windows down, taking in the...
