    Season of giving reflects medical professionals passion

    all year long your health

    The holidays are upon us and the universal focus that gathers all people is giving except perhaps in children, where getting is the name of the game. This is certainly not the case with Angel Andujar, an 8-year-old baseball loving boy

    youll read about on page 23.

    Angel has a heart for children who face grave medical tragedies and rather than

    gifts, he asked his parents for money last year so he could help those in the most

    dire straights. This year is no different, just a different foe. Rather than childhood

    cancer, he is raising money to heal a baby from an autoimmune disease. Like his

    mother says, Angel certainly is living up to his name.

    This brings me to year-end reflection as we put out this fourth issue of Viera MD

    quarterly magazine. I have noticed that each of the medical professionals featured

    on these pages has a heart for giving, just like Angel. They want to save adults as

    well as children who face grave health threats, or perhaps they just want to help

    people live their greatest, healthiest life.

    Its my pleasure to introduce some of these great people to you in Viera MD. They

    will discuss the latest advancements in health and wellness, just as they do during

    our Ask the Doc seminars. Their favorite topic is one of lifes greatest gifts your

    health. You might recognize some of their faces at the Backstage Pass Boomer

    Bash & Senior Expo on Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the King Center in Melbourne.

    FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY.

    Having an annual mammogram can help make sure youll be there for lifes most important moments. A mammogram

    can help detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. The American Cancer Society recommends one every year for

    women 40 and older, or for younger women considered to be at risk. At Wuesthoff Health System, we bring you digital

    mammography, for clearer images and quicker results. Call 321-637-3030 to schedule your mammogram today.*

    WHAT IS THE MOVEMBER FOUNDATION?

    The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men's health.

    We achieve this by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds and awareness for men's health issues, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

    The Movember community has raised over $550 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

    Meaningful strides have been taken toward achieving our goals, but there is more work to be done. We're committed to raising vital funds and awareness to improve the lives of men and their families.

    Men and women sign up at Movember.com Men start November 1 clean-shaven and grow a

    moustache, and only a moustache Raise funds and awareness for men's health Women participate the same way as men
