I Had A Dream I Had Breast Cancer – I DID!

Hi!  I am Lisa O’Hara, Contributor to News10 My Neighborhood for the past three years.   So many events, taking photos and writing articles, informing our community of the great nonprofit organizations which serve our community, brought me to “Race for the Cure” last year which touched my heart deeply as I was photographing women whose survivor-strength shown on their faces, the family members who attended their mother, wife, daughter, aunt, niece and perhaps neighbor who was there to run “The Race For The Cure. “ There were many who as they ran, walked or were in wheelchairs and still undergoing various treatments, showed courage and resiliency for either their “noted year of survival” or the remembrance of a loved one whose life was taken by breast cancer.

Preventing Falls Can Save Lives

Preventing Falls Can Save Lives

It happens all too often – an energetic retiree pulls out a ladder and climbs on the roof to fix a leak, or is simply walking into the kitchen and trips on a throw rug – whatever the scenario, seniors are at risk for serious falls that could change the way they live their lives.

In fact, one in three adults over 65 will fall each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. And of those who fall, 20 to 30 percent suffer injuries that make it hard for them to get around or continue to live independently.

“A fall can be life-changing,” said Wendie Skala, RN, trauma prevention coordinator at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center. “While the vast majority will go home with no problems, for some it can mean going to an assisted living facility or depending more on family members for day-to-day care.”
