October is a Busy Month For East Texas Community Involvement

Mental Illness Awareness week is running now through October 13.  Driven by the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the goal is to not stereotype victims, but rather reach out in support for treatment.  According to the group, mental illness is a treatable medical condition, and warrants the same respect as those suffering from other debilitating issues, including diabetes and heart disease, for example.

The Zayne Anthony Memorial blood drive continues through October 23 at The Blood Center of East Texas.  Grab a T-shirt just for donating “the gift of life”, as well as entering into a drawing for a gift card at one of Lufkin’s dining establishments.  Call 634-2116 and plan on about one hour of time out of your day.

Lastly, it’s that time of year we go PINK, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Sadly, statistics show that one in eight women will be diagnosed positively.  Experts in the field of medicine urge women to have a Digital Mammogram once each year.  In addition to their regular weekday schedule, Memorial-Lufkin is offering Saturday appointments during October, so ladies  —  No excuses!
