Thanks For Pink Vail
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who made Pink Vail 2016 the most successful year yet! When the team at Vail Valley Medical Center first envisioned Pink Vail five years ago we never imagined it would grow to become one of the community's most cherished events. Since 2012 over $2.4 million has been raised for patient care and survivorship programs for all patients at Shaw Regional Cancer Center. It's incredible to see the local communityas well as the global communitycome together to raise funds and commemorate our united fight against cancer. From school children who held bake sales and made personal contributions to events hosted by our top fundraisers the incredible support of our partners and the hard work of over 400 volunteers everyone came together and raised $738000.
I'm proud to know that 100% of the proceeds from Pink Vail will benefit current and future patients at Shaw providing free exercise training nutrition coaching emotional support outdoor adventures a nurse navigator massages integrative treatments and much more. These services are not typically covered by insurance but have proven to significantly improve the quality of life of our patients.
Pink Vail did not just raise dollars however. Thanks to everyone's enthusiasm for this event Pink Vail raised spirits. The united fight against cancer was embraced and the sense of love and support for those affected by the disease was palpable. The power of community is remarkable and we are especially grateful to the Pink Vail community. Thank you!

The Role of Senescent Cells in Longevity and How to Reduce Their Impact
One key player in this aging process is the presence of senescent cells, cells that have ceased to divide and function but linger in the body, secreting harmful molecules that can lead to various age-related diseases.
Exploring the Role of NAD+ in Aging and Longevity
In the pursuit of healthy aging, scientists and researchers are delving into the intricate world of cellular function, uncovering the key to slowing down the aging process. One molecule that has captured the spotlight in recent years is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme found in every living cell.
Hugs & Kisses for Health
Valentine’s Day is a great time to eat chocolate and write sappy love notes, but it’s important to get plenty of hugs, kisses and snuggles all year-round.
