"I’m proud to be part of the foundation that brought 9Health Fair to Colorado communities. It gives me a great sense of purpose, particularly in the rural communities. I’m the lucky one. I get back far more than I give."

“My wife and I have been going to [the] 9Health Fair for many years in several different towns in Colorado, so it plays a big part in our lives. In April of 2003, we went again to have our annual blood screening but this time mine came back a little different. My PSA number came in a little high with a suggestion to make an appointment with my doctor. With further evaluation I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had no previous symptoms. I was given several options but at my age of 51, surgery was the best for me. As you can see 9Health Fair saved my life. My family and I are so grateful for the services available to all of our communities. 9Health Fair is great and I am looking forward to many more 9fairs.”

Blazing Your Way to a Healthier You

 

It's easy to come up with excuses - I'm too busy to worry about my health, work is stressful so I eat for comfort, I am in too much of a hurry to eat right and exercise. No matter what it is, we all have a reason for not living as healthily as we should.

This spring, follow our 9Health Trail Blazers, the folks who are committed to overcome obstacles to pursue their health goals.  With the help of 9Health Fair and some local medical experts, we are going to follow them and watch as they reach their goals.

Find out about each one of our Trail Blazers and see their story on 9News. Then see if you relate to one of them.

They each have unique goals and finding resources to help reach those milestones isn't always easy. Check out these helpful articles to lead you on the right path to meeting your health goals.
