Feel Good Friday: Great Stats & Toddler Steals the Show

18 Jan

I’ve got two – count ’em, TWO – pieces of Feel Good Friday material for you today. Bonus! {grin}

First up is the Cancer Statistics, 2013 report released by the American Cancer Society yesterday stating the rate of people dying from cancer has declined 20% overall (24% for men; 16% for women) from its highest point in 1991. Amen and amen!

This is not to say there still are not too many people dying from cancer because one cancer death is one too many, but this is progress and that’s what we need. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 1,660,290 new cancer cases and 580,350 deaths from cancer in the United States in 2013. Way too many, but significantly less than 20 years ago and that is definitely something to feel good about. More details about the report can be found here.

Secondly, I’ve got a video for you that my sister sent to me this week. A musician was performing New Year’s Eve and his toddler son decided to join him on stage. This little guy has some serious moves! {I have no rhythm, so it’s pretty impressive to me that he can shake his little diaper-clad booty this well.} What a cutie!
