It’s already time for another Flu Shot Friday at ExpressRx of Bartlesville!  Did you know that on average it takes approximately 2 weeks for your body to properly mount (or build up) an immune response to a flu shot?  That makes NOW the perfect time to get your flu shot so you are protected in time for those fun family gatherings at Thanksgiving time!

Wear Purple for November

Did you know that November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month?  Perhaps the most famous sufferer of pancreatic cancer was Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple.  The lives of several other beloved celebrities (such as Dizzie Gillespie and Patrick Swayze) have been cut short because of this devastating illness.  To learn more about their battles, click HERE.  Pancreatic cancer is sometimes referred to as a “silent” disease because the symptoms appear slowly and are usually non-specific (meaning they could be caused by many different underlying factors).  Pancreatic cancer is often not diagnosed until it has progressed significantly, which drastically lowers a patient’s chance for survival.  Advanced disease only has a 5 year survival rate of about 1%.

The good news is that increased awareness of this disease is leading to better treatments and more positive outcomes for patients.  Researchers are exploring better diagnostic techniques such as genetic testing and risk factor analysis for high risk patients.  Scientists are also developing new treatments including combination chemotherapy options and targeted immune therapies.  To learn more about pancreatic cancer, including risk factors, symptoms, and treatments, visit:

Halloween and Food Allergies

tpp

Do you have a child with food allergies?  If not, maybe you have a niece, grandson, or neighbor with a food allergy.  Some of these allergies can be life threatening for children.  Have you thought about what to do for Halloween to make this festive holiday fun for kiddos with food allergies?  We recently discovered The Teal Pumpkin Project and we think it is a great idea to help reassure parents of children with allergies.  The idea behind The Teal Pumpkin Project is that homeowners offering non-food treats for children can place a pumpkin that has been painted teal on their porch and this will signify to parents that this home offers special treats for children with allergies.  You don’t have to discard (or worse eat!) all of the candy that you have already purchased, simply purchase a few stickers or plastic necklaces and put that pumpkin out on your porch!  Lets make this Halloween safe and fun for all children.

For more information and additional non-food treat ideas visit The Teal Pumpkin Project
