September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men. In 2023, the American Cancer Society estimates there will be about 288,300 new cases and about 34,700 deaths from prostate cancer. The American Urological Association suggests men ages 50 to 69, with an average risk for prostate cancer, talk to their doctor about whether prostate cancer testing is right for them. For men with a higher risk of getting prostate cancer, which includes African-American men or men with a family history of cancer, think about talking to your doctor as early as 40-54 years of age.

Hospice Myth Busters
Myth: Hospice Care Ends with the Patient’s Passing Fact: Families and caregivers can find comfort that Hospice Care does not end with the patient’s passing. Bereavement and grief support services are often included for family members up to a full year after the patient’s passing. Many Hospice services also help make funeral arrangements or support other issues that arise after the patient’s death.
FLORIDA’S DELICIOUS Summer Kale Salad

1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese (thin shavings)

Rinse/dry kale. Cut off tough, middle stems. Stack leaves, a few at a time, cut ¼ inch strips across the leaves. Place in a large bowl.
Use a juicer or hand press to juice the lemons.
Combine/whisk lemon juice and olive oil, add salt and pepper. Pour over kale and mix.
Place in refrigerator and let kale sit in mixture for at least 1 hour, stirring/frequently mixing to allow juice to soften kale.

Using a cheese shaver (or grater), slice ½ cup of Parmesan cheese, set aside.
