From Pam Stephan, your Guide to Breast Cancer
As a kid, the best part of Thanksgiving - other than going to my grandparents farm - was the cranberry sauce. Who could beat having jelly at breakfast, lunch and dinner? Thank goodness cranberries are actually healthy food!

Good Foods That Fight Cancer
A healthy diet builds up your immunity to disease and helps you recover, if you do get sick. With Thanksgiving you get an opportunity to eat a wide variety of healthy foods. Make some smart choices this year, and don't skip the cranberries!

Drink Yourself to Health
Among the many temptations at a bountiful holiday table is alcohol - and you may be offered a taste or two. Decline these graciously and try the buzz-free versions instead. Any kind of alcohol increases your hormone levels, which puts your health at risk. Head for the water, tea or coffee instead.

For many metastatic breast cancer patients, Avastin seemed to be their last hope. Now, unless they are on Medicare or have the resources to afford between $88,000 and $100,000 a year a year for the drug, that hope is beyond reach.  The news came Friday as FDA commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg handed down a ruling on this targeted therapy.
