Favourite Fall Beverages

October 17th, 2014 by Vicki No comments »

Ah… fall, the beautiful season of watching the leaves change colours while dressed in a fuzzy sweater and sipping on a delightfully warm beverage. Here are the drinks we’re cozying up to this fall.

1. DAVIDsTEA Fall Collection
We like to think of this limited edition collection as fall in a box – it captures quintessential autumn flavours like pumpkin pie, baked apples, and warm cinnamon sugar. It’ll be hard to choose a fave among the five fabulous flavours: Sweet Apple Cider, a refreshing blend that tastes fresh from the orchard; Snickerdoodle, a bakery-worthy treat filled with cinnamon sugar; Yes We Cran, a tart and comforting blend with cranberries and spices; Maple Sugar, a deliciously sweet black tea with real maple syrup; and Pumpkin Chai, a black tea that, with its spicy mix of cinnamon, carrot and cloves and sweet notes of caramel pumpkin candy, we liken to pumpkin pie in a cup – yum!

Living Legacy Campaign: What is Metastic Breast Cancer?

October 17th, 2014 by Vicki No comments »

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and as many of us take it upon ourselves to raise money and bring awareness to the disease that affects 1 in 9 Canadian, a portion of these women are climbing a whole different hill. The Canadian Breast Cancer Network recently launched its Living Legacy campaign, focusing on an advanced form of breast cancer known as metastic breast cancer.

We had the opportunity to ask a few questions to Dr. Sunil Verma, an oncologist at Toronto’s Sunnybrooke Hospital, as well as Mei-Lin Yee, a woman who is living with metastic breast cancer and is sharing her story.

What is metastatic breast cancer?
Dr. Verma: Metastatic breast cancer occurs when the cancer has spread to other parts of the body – most commonly, the bones, liver, lungs, and brain. Metastatic breast cancer is currently considered an incurable disease that may be controlled through treatment. While some patients live beyond five years, the average survival for patients with metastatic breast cancer is generally around 2- 3 years.
