'Choose You' For Your Health

May 3, 2011, 6:16 PM by Kelli Grant

'Choose You' For Your Health
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Whether it's your sister, your mother or your daughter, one in three women will get cancer in their lifetime.

But the American Cancer Society is hoping that woman in your life can make that change, just in time for Mother's Day.

35-year-old Amy Harms decided four years ago that it was time to take time for herself.

“I started working out and running and taking the time for me, knowing that it would benefit my family in the long run,” Harms said.

Since then, she's run several half marathons and is training for one coming up this summer.

Harms is a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, a career woman, and on top of taking care of herself, she's taking care of her 15 and 8-year-old.

“With the busy lifestyle, sometimes it's just easer to just run through the drive thru and the kids prefer it. So sometimes it's just easier to do that. But you start to think about what the long-term ramifications of that are and decide to make a change for the healthy," Harms said. 

Making that healthy change is something the American Cancer Society wants all women to do. A new campaign called Choose You is inspiring people like Harms to put her health first.

“The American Cancer Society wants to motivate women to choose them. To put their health and their fitness and their wellness first because in doing that, they're going to be better equipped to take care of their families,” Harms said.

Because taking control of your health is one of the first steps to preventing cancer.

“I feel empowered that I've taken control of my life,” Harms said.
