But do you really know the challenges women with breast cancer really face? As an occupational therapist specializing in pain management using myofascial release, I have treated a large number of women of all ages, usually through word of mouth as they hear about the therapy I perform.

The body remembers and your mind creates a story of the pain and the worst outcome possible. Then your pain becomes a habit, ruling your daily routine. This impacts your self-care, work life, and home life.

Recently someone asked me on my thoughts about the NFL players accused of physical abuse to their wives, children and, in one case, a fiancé that has been reported by every major news outlet around the world. I shared, “One who abuses another in any way, is a coward, period.”
An attorney for the state told a federal judge here late Monday it's “unfortunate” — but not illegal — that Arizona will not recognize a man legally married in California as his husband's legal survivor.
