NEW YORK, May 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EHE International has donated a window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza to the American Cancer Society's Choose You movement (chooseyou.com), an initiative that encourages women to put themselves first and make healthy lifestyle choices that can help reduce cancer risk. Throughout the month of May, a 115-square foot display window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza will showcase a Choose You public service announcement and a call to action for women to join the movement at chooseyou.com.
"EHE International is pleased to offer the American Cancer Society this opportunity to raise awareness for women's cancer prevention," said Deborah McKeever, EHE International President. "We hope that this encourages women to take charge of their health and help prevent cancer."
Choose You shines a light on an important statistic – one in three women will get cancer in their lifetime. However, women can help change the odds by joining the movement and accessing tips and tools to help them put their health first. More than half of cancer deaths could be prevented if more emphasis was placed on healthier lifestyles including maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise, avoiding tobacco, and getting regular cancer screenings.
"The Choose You movement provides support, tips and tools to help women stay well and prevent cancer," said Terry Music, chief mission delivery officer for the American Cancer Society. "Women are usually busy with everything else but themselves, and we want to encourage them to make their health a priority."
