Your family history can help determine how high your risk is for Ovarian Cancer.
One in 67 women (1-2%) will develop Ovarian Cancer in her lifetime. The lifetime risk for women who have a family history of Ovarian Cancer, but no known genetic mutation, is 4-7%, and the risk for women with a genetic mutation passed down from either parent is approximately 20-54%.
Your family history can help determine how high your risk is for breast and ovarian cancer.
One in eight women (12%) will develop Breast Cancer in her lifetime. The lifetime risk for women who have a family history of breast cancer, but no genetic mutation, is 20-30%. The risk for women with a genetic mutation inherited from either parent is higher even higher - approximately 60-87%.
Factors such as hormone exposure, environmental exposures, diet, exercise, and other genes, can effect cancer risk, both in people with BRCA mutations and people who do not have a mutation.
'Let It Go' from Frozen has become the soundtrack to many of our lives the past two months. The level of passion from Stella and Lila when they sing these songs has surpassed any amount of excitement I have seen from them in the short time they have been on this earth. And I am indebted to the creators of Frozen for this, thank you for the hours of my little people running around the house, arms flailing, legs leaping, top of their lungs in song.
Stella has entered the global landscape of kids singing Frozen songs with a respectable performance, she is truly committed. It is more of a yelling than singing, and she has made up some new words, like 'Heaven knows I jibried'. You can hear Lila singing back-up.
VSCO, which stands for Visual Supply Co has quickly emerged as the premier mobile photography app. Emily Nathan, our photograher on the Target Baby campaign this year introduced me to it. Thank you Emily.
The app bundles in a variety of tremendously good filters (which VSCO prefers to call "Presets"), accessible editing tools, and minimalist user profiles called grids. The new app was downloaded over a million times in its first week, and hasn’t dropped out of the top 15 in the App Store’s Photography and Video category since launch.
My favorite tools are the exposure and focus windows you can move around with your fingers. One filter, C3, emulates modern negative Fuji film stocks using contrast and gritty green tones. Another, LV1, was built in partnership with Levi’s and emulates classic slide film.
Many VSCO Cam users are posting their work to Instagram, so to be one of the cool kids #vscocam when you share your creations on Instagram.
