Do you remember when you came into the store the other day you asked what we wanted for Christmas? We weren’t really sure what to ask for, but we thought about it and we came up with a small list for you! Is there any way you could help us make sure that everyone we care for gets their flu shot this winter? We have customers that are too sick to get their flu shot or can’t get one because of allergies, or they are too young (we have some brand new babies that are about to celebrate their first Christmas this year!) or they have other health reasons. We worry about them being protected from the flu and the only real way to do that is to make sure everyone who is able to receives THEIR flu shot! We would especially like to make sure everyone gets their flu shot soon so that when you go to everyone’s houses this Christmas Eve you don’t catch any flu bugs- because you have a lot of important work to do! It takes about two weeks to develop immunity after you get your flu shot so now is the perfect time to get one. By the way Santa, have YOU gotten your flu shot yet? Don’t worry, we have plenty here and we will set one aside for you.

Have you thought about what you would ask Santa for if you sent him a letter? Santa actually stopped by ExpressRx of Bartlesville the other day for cough drops (even Santa gets sick!) and he said that if you dropped your letter to Santa off here at the store he will PERSONALLY come by to check his mailbox here at our store!

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:
