Sometimes that hope actually pays off! But other times, especially when it comes to our health, the belief that "it couldn't possibly happen to me" can sadly disrupt our lives. Cancer. Diabetes. Heart attack. Obesity. Lung disease. High blood pressure. Depression. Stroke. Disease can strike our life like lightning. But fortunately, it doesn't have to do that. PREVENTION OF CHRONIC DISEASE THROUGH AWARENESS AND REGULAR HEALTHCARE works better than all the optimism in the world to keep you and your family healthy for a lifetime. This issue of Spirit of Women is packed with information on how to stay well and how to find and treat health problems early enough that they don't interrupt your life. GET REAL WITH YOUR HEALTH. Disease CAN happen to you or someone you love. Discover your risk factors and reduce them through healthcare and lifestyle changes. Spirit of Women celebrates health as finding the energizing balance among body, mind and spirit. Our member hospitals want to help you on that path to renewed vitality. To find a Spirit program near you, turn to pages 12–14. Here's to a summer of planning for better health. Enjoy!
