Spread the hope, find a cure

It's time for our Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon! It seems like each year I know of someone new, a friend, a family member or an acquaintance, who has been affected by breast cancer. This makes Breast Cancer Awareness Month even more important - to recognize those who have fought the battle against breast cancer and to help promote breast cancer awareness and prevention.

Like myself, most people have been touched by breast cancer in some way. Although screening and treatments continue to improve, the American Cancer Society estimates that 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women, and 39,620 women will die from this disease in 2013. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.

Each year, flu season affects millions of men, women and children. Flu season usually begins in October, so now is a great time to protect yourself and your family from the flu by getting vaccinated. The flu shot is easy to get and inexpensive - often free - for TRICARE beneficiaries and this year the flu vaccine offers even more protection.

At Minot Air Force Base, N.D., the flu mist became available to active duty, dependents, and retirees Sept. 30, on a walk-in basis at the Immunizations Clinic. Currently, the flu shot is available to high-risk individuals only, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

This is the third story in a 3-part series focusing on DUI prevention initiatives at Minot Air Force Base

In an effort to end alcohol and drug addiction among Airmen, Minot Air Force Base has a variety of programs and agencies, but perhaps the most influential is the 5th Medical Group's Alcohol Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment program, simply referred to as ADAPT.

The skilled professionals who run the ADAPT program are focused not only on treatment but also raising awareness, said Tech. Sgt. Tracy Davidson, 5th Medical Operations Squadron ADAPT technician. Through increased awareness, individuals may find treatment before addiction ruins one's career or worse -- ends someone's life.
