Whew. Hockey is back today. Finally. Also, The real Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Silly Canadians with Thanksgiving in October...
What are you thankful for? Start thinking about everything you would list out if you made a list. How many of those things would you lose if you had a heart attack? What about if you failed to get some other medical condition, such as testicular cancer, treated and that took you away from those that are thankful for your presence in their lives?
One way to avoid all of this? Get a check up once a year. It's so simple it's ridiculous, but it is a life saving appointment. Countless stories of men (and women) going to a doctor's appointment and the doc finding something that is easily treatable if found early enough.
Before we get too far... Rob Sasser... where are you? Step forward and be recognized. Rob has raised $300 for Movember thus far on the HW team. Thank you so much Rob!
