One of the most devastating diseases facing our society today has destroyed more lives than some wars with a fall out that not only includes physical pain but an emotional upheaval that often leaves patients reeling from the emotional hit.
Though devastating as cancer is for those that receive a diagnosis as well as those closest to them, researchers and doctors have made giant leaps in treating the disease beyond simply removing cancerous cells.
The Emotional Struggle of a Cancer Diagnosis and Cancer Treatments Centers of America Push for Complete Health for Women
As cancer wreaks havoc on many of the vital systems necessary for a complete and whole life, the emotional toll of having to battle against the disease simultaneously erodes patients strength and hope which are essential more so than ever for those battling for their lives.
As the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has become a leader within the medical community known for providing patients with not only top of the line care but a safe environment to help foster healing beyond cancer’s remission they have implemented programs that aim to heal some of the unseen scars cancer often leaves behind. So in partnership with the ACA, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America created an outreach program designed to help women who have received a cancer diagnosis navigate the new terrain of maintaining their self-esteem and hope in spite of the physical ravages caused by cancer.
The program brings together cosmetic experts and patients for group discussions about make-up tips, ways to conceal hair loss, as well as maintaining general emotional well-being throughout the entire process.

People who succeed in life start showing signs at an early age. Since his time in college, Christopher Burch has always been interested in fashion, design and investments. 40 years later, he has established himself as one of the most successful business person in the United States of America. Currently, he serves as the CEO as well as the founder of a company called Burch Creative Capital. During this time, he has also been involved with other companies such as Poppin, Trademark as well as DeGeneres, Voss Water, and Jawbone. Chris Burch has also been involved with other ventures such as Nihiwatu, Cocoon9 and finally Faena Hotel + Universe.
To explain his success, Chris, and his brother established their first venture using $2000. They referred to this company as the Eagles Eye Apparel but later sold the company at an estimated $165 million. Chris Burch attended the Itchica College for his undergraduate degree. Just recently, he had the opportunity of discussing the relationship that exists between fashion and technology. During this discussion, Chris Burch explained that the best way to understand the relationship between these two industries is looking at their future, present, and even the past. Remarkable differences exist between these two industries. The only thing that has remained constant is that they continue to evolve together.
For this analogy, Chris uses the changes that have taken place in the music industry. According to Chris Burch, the boom box of the 1970s allowed people listen to their favorite music whenever they wished. This was then followed by the disc cassette where people would listen to music on one side and record on the other. He then explains how the Walkman revolutionized the music industry. Finally, he talks about the way the iPod has changed things lately.
Chris acknowledges that there are fashion designers who are using technology to come up with amazing designs. He says that the only way to understand the future of fashion is to use technology. For instance, fashion designers have created good air bags that can be used by bike rider instead of the traditional helmets. These airbags are fashionable and only get deployed in case of an accident.
