ACTING EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT
FOR HEALTH AFFAIRS,
UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA HEALTH SYSTEM,

As we gather with family and friends over the
holidays, this is the perfect time to reflect on the
year and the ones we cherish. With a husband
who is my rock and two joyful little boys, I consider myself
extremely fortunate. And while I have long cherished my colleagues at UVA Health, I can say without hesitation that I
owe them my life.
With a strong family history of cancer, I had long known
that cancer could be in my fate. But it was almost unimagiNicole Kelleher,
nable to learn last March that I had breast cancer-just as my MD, MPH
husband and I were about to start trying for our third child.
As you'll learn inside (page 5), my cancer was found early and at a curable stage.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am to the UVA High-Risk Breast and Ovarian Cancer
Program and everyone at UVA Cancer Center. Thanks to them, I am very likely to
watch my cherished children grow and to see them go to college.
While most of us won't inherit a high risk for cancer as I did, many of us are
at greater risk: A significant number of cancers-especially colon, endometrial and
postmenopausal breast cancers-are related to obesity, explains Susan Modesitt,
MD. As founder of the UVA High-Risk Breast and Ovarian Cancer Program,
Dr. Modesitt has devoted her career to preventing cancer and closely following
those like me who are at high risk for cancer due to hereditary and other reasons.
Most cancers, she explains, are the result of lifestyle. "We could eliminate half
of all U.S. cancers if everybody followed a healthy diet and got regular exercise,"
Dr. Modesitt says.
A healthier lifestyle is easier than you might think. (See page 28 for ideas on how
to persuade a partner and children to live healthier.) As you visit with loved ones
over the holidays, cherish each moment. Maybe even encourage them to dance to
classic holiday music. The sillier the better. You'll create lasting memories and sneak
in some exercise that will help bring more happy times together.
Yours in health,
