Charisma Carpenter and her charming son Donovan had a grand old time on Wednesday going to the doctor's office in Beverly Hills.
Or at least Charisma did.
We're not sure how much fun Donovan had the doctor's office instead of playing outside!
Regular visits to the doctor are an integral part of maintaining good health. Without that trip, you might not find out about life threatening illnesses or diseases until it's TOO LATE!
For some people, however, going to the doctor is scarier than death itself!
I know I should go to the doctor, but I’m just so nervous to go. How do I overcome the fear?
According to Fran:
Tina, nobody loves to go to the doctor. (Unless he/she is a good looking, single and loves your dog Fluffy!) But you need to realize the only person who can take care of your body is YOU!
Bring a trusty friend with you to your appointment and always go prepared with questions, especially if you haven’t been feeling like your usual self. And believe me, your body WILL tell you when there’s something wrong. If you don’t feel like your doctor is giving you the attention or answers you deserve, find another physician.
It’s not personal, it’s your life! Your doctor should make you feel comfortable, informed and motivated to be and stay healthy.
MSNBC host and NBC's chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell reported some troubling personal news this week.
The 64-year-old journalist shared with her viewers at the end of Andrea Mitchell Reports that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Fortunately, doctors caught the cancer early during an annual screening and had not spread.
While her prognosis is "terrific", she emphasized the importance of attending regular check ups, saying:
"I’m looking at this as another of life’s lessons. For you women out there and for the men who love you, screening matters. Do it."
We're so sorry to hear of her illness, but are inspired by her strength to turn a negative experience into a positive one by educating her viewers on the importance of screenings!
Watch her inspiring message above advocating breast cancer prevention and research for a cure!
