    One of the best weapons in fighting cancer could be your fork.
    “Whether you want to prevent cancer or are currently fighting it, it’s important to provide your body with the proper fuel,” says Carolyn Katzin, MSPH, CNS, MNT, a nutritionist who works with Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center. “My goal here is to help people make small changes that can have a profound effect on overall health.”

    If you’ve already begun treatment for cancer, Katzin recommends focusing on two critical areas of your diet. “Getting enough protein is incredibly important,” she says. “For most people, that means adding one more serving per day. Also, sufficient hydration is essential, and in some cases, that means electrolytes as well.” click for more

  • Five Things You Can Do...
    1. Plan a Homemade Pizza Party
    Invite some friends and ask everyone to bring a favorite topping and drink to share. Give awards for most creative and best tasting pizzas.

    2. Stretch Your Face
    Prop yourself in front of a mirror and open your mouth wide, raise your eyebrows, wink, and wiggle your nose and ears, if you can. Laughing is permitted and highly encouraged.

    3. Walk Your Neighborhood
    As Katherine Hepburn once stated, “Exercise each day, in all kinds of weather.” Early mornings are quite pleasant even in the hottest months. click for more

  • What’s In A Label?
    Have you ever considered the notion that the fewer the ingredients, the less likely you are to ingest a long list of additives? Although it may seem daunting to wend your way through the supermarket reading food labels, knowing exactly what you’re eating is an important step to good health.

    The American Heart Association® and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention™ (CDC) list the recommended adequate amount of daily sodium as 1,500 milligrams or less. click for more

The 25th annual Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational, benefiting the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center for abused children, tees off February 21-23, 2013. Eagle Falls Golf Course and Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio will host the event, which is one of the longest running and most successful fundraising events of its kind in the Coachella Valley. Starkey Hearing Technologies returns for the fifth year as the title sponsor, and Ken Venturi, one of Frank Sinatra’s best friends, will co-host the event along with Mrs. Sinatra.

Celebrities, amateur contestants, loyal sponsors and enthusiastic spectators look forward to the “celebrity-friendly” event known as “Frank’s Little Party in the Desert.” The popular two-day, celebrity-amateur golf tournament also features three nights of dinner parties with entertainment and a spectacular luncheon and fashion show which are dedicated to the memory and music of Frank Sinatra. This year’s luncheon and fashion show will be presented by Fe Zandi Haute Couture.

Barbara and Frank Sinatra founded the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational in 1988 to raise funds for the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, which opened in 1986 at Eisenhower Medical Center. The mission of the non-profit center is to provide counseling for victims of physical, sexual and emotional child abuse and to focus on prevention, community education and breaking the cycle of abuse. Services are provided regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

Gallery admission is free for the event and cameras are welcome! For tournament information and admission, visit FrankSinatraGolf.org or call 760-674-8447. For more information on the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center at Eisenhower Medical Center, visit BarbaraSinatraChildrensCenter.org.
