Women do it all. Women are conditioned to believe—from childhood—that they can do it all. There’s nothing wrong with that philosophy, until it takes a toll on one’s health.
Women take care of business, take care of the home, and take care of the kids. But they are not taking care of themselves. Proof positive--78% of women surveyed say they put-off taking care of themselves because they are taking care of everyone else’s health.
Walgreens is trying to raise women’s health awareness by enlisting the help of four famous women with health issues to be the voices of its “Wake Up Call” campaign. These ladies share tips and tricks for remembering to take meds, as well as their own stories on social media in the upcoming weeks.
The celebs include:
Fran Drescher, Star of The Nanny; Uterine Cancer Survivor
Jaime-Lynn Sigler, Star of The Sopranos; Living with Multiple Sclerosis
Megan Park, Star of The Secret Life of the American Teenager; Living with rheumatoid arthritis
Dr. Jackie Walters, Licensed OBGYN; Married to Medicine cast member; Breast cancer survivor
Ladies: take care of your health first. Because we need you here to take care of us. Seriously. We’re not gonna lie. We can't be left to our own devices...
