Everyone has heard about The Top 30 Under 30.  We believe that celebrating the accomplishments of people over 50 is just as important; that age does not define an individual and what we can and cannot do.  We will be recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of successful individuals over 50;  individuals who have reinvented themselves, who have found their true purpose and calling and who have followed the road less travelled.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Niagara Health, in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, is encouraging women to participate in the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) as soon as they’re eligible and make mammograms part of their routine medical care.                        Mammograms can find breast cancer when it’s small, less likely to have spread and easier to treat. The OBSP offers free screening mammograms to women aged 50 to 74 with no signs of breast cancer as part of their routine medical care. It’s recommended that these women get a mammogram every two years since early detection through mammography can result in significant health benefits including increased treatment options and better survival rates.
