Why hot pink?

Pink is great. Hot pink is even better.  Pink to me represents things that are feminine, pretty, and awesome.

But pink also is a means of supporting cancer research and prevention. People everywhere are affected greatly by the effects of cancer; and whether directly or indirectly, it affects everyone.

When it affects you personally, there is a real need to do something positive in that regard. But what positive things can be done?  There are a lot of ways to assist when it comes to cancer research and prevention.  Many are monetary.  It takes money to do pharmaceutical research, develop new treatments, optimal dosages, conduct drug trials.  There’s also the natural view of healing, which is getting more attention recently.

But there are other things that can be done, as well.  We’ve all heard it before.  Eat well.  Get regular exercise. Get enough rest. That’s where the health and fitness topics come in.  There are lots of studies and information out there showing that cancer is preventable.  Yup, I said it.  Preventable.

Here are the goals I will attempt to accomplish with this blog:

1) I will do my best to highlight information I find that is interesting, new or important when it comes to cancer research and studies that are being conducted. Cancer research is going strong, but there are always new findings.  If it is important, if it is interesting, or inspiring, I’ll write about it.  Otherwise, I won’t.

2) I’ll also include bits about health, fitness, and things we can do to assist in cancer prevention.  Believe it or not, there’s a lot of information out there that says it can be prevented.  More about that in future posts.

3) I also want to include upcoming athletic events, like fun runs, walks, rides, that all benefit cancer foundations and research. There’s good information that regular exercise reduces risk factors for many health problems, including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, to name a few.

4) That’s where hot pink comes in.  Don’t get me wrong, I like regular pink and all.  Even ribbons.  But give me some awesome hot pink products that also benefit cancer research, and I’m so there.  I aim to have a page that will present cool products that not only are hot pink, but that support cancer research.

Doing what I can about promoting health and cancer prevention matters to me.  I hope it will matter to you.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I believe what you typed was actually very reasonable.
    But, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome title?
    I ain’t saying your information is not solid, but what if you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean all things hot pink! | Your primary resource for health, fitness,
    and cancer prevention. is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit
    more interesting.

  2. Hi! I’ve been reading your site for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the good job!

  3. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over
