Choose You

Choose You is a movement created by the American Cancer Society that encourages women to put their own health first in the fight against cancer. And it shines a light on a hidden issue: one in three American women will get cancer in her lifetime, but about 50% of cancer deaths could be prevented. The key to prevention is focusing on early detection and healthier lifestyles such as maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise, and avoiding tobacco.

In the constant struggle between family, work and self, we know how difficult it is to focus on you. To help change this, Choose You provides the tools and support women need to commit to and achieve their personal health and wellness goals.
