Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Cenegenics Carolinas well surpassed its team’s $5,000 goal for last Sunday’s 5k Lowcountry Race for the Cure and is taking its passion for breast cancer awareness to the next level, announced Cenegenics® Medical Institute, the global leader in age management medicine. Dr. Mickey Barber—CEO/CMO of Cenegenics Carolinas—used Facebook fundraising initiatives and the race as platforms to educate the public on risk factors for breast cancer and a proactive medical approach to help reduce cancer incidence.
Barber lost her sister Marta to breast cancer a few years ago. Barber—along with her 51-member, high-spirited Carolinas Cancer Crusher team of patients, family and friends—raised over $6,000 in her sister’s honor for the 18th Annual Susan G. Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure.
“I’m overwhelmed by the support we’ve received for this. My sister used to walk the Race for the Cure year after year during her five years of being cancer free. So this race was a good opportunity to celebrate her life and share more about a healthier living approach and breast cancer prevention,” Barber said.
Per Barber, that preventive medical approach includes low-glycemic nutrition, exercise, supplements, hormone therapy when clinically indicated and even meditation.
“Stress is one of the leading factors in causing cancer. One European study revealed that women having four or more life stressors over a two-year span have a higher risk for developing breast cancer. Those stress factors can be divorce, death, job loss or anything negatively impacting your life,” Barber said.
Barber waived the registration fee for her team’s participants as well as made a special donation in their name to the Susan G. Komen fundraiser ($50 for each patient who joined the team and $75 for every non-patient). Participants received a custom Cenegenics Carolinas pedometer and two T-shirts—then joined Cenegenics Carolinas for an after-party brunch.
