The next meeting of the “Living with Cancer” Support Group will be held on Thursday, January 5 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. The meeting will take place in the third floor conference room at Wayne Health Care. Christy Baker and Stephanie Lind will be sharing information about Melaleuca, a private, faith-based company that specializes in safe, all-natural, non-toxic products for your home. Christy states that the average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals. She also says that an EPA study stated that the toxic chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air and cancer rates have almost doubled since 1960 and there has been a 26% increase in breast cancer since 1982. She also states that bleach is being linked to the rising rates of breast cancer in women and since 1980 asthma has increased by 600%. All of these can be linked back to the chemicals that we subject ourselves to everyday. Christy wants to share her personal experience with these not toxic products and how they may benefit those patients battling cancer.

The local Cancer Association of Darke County sponsors the Living with Cancer group in cooperation with Wayne Hospital. The Support Group is open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis, also family and friends of an individual with cancer are encouraged to attend. Facilitating the support group meeting this week will be Christine Yount and Jill Brown from Wayne Health Care from Wayne Hospital.
