$1,000 For You + $1,000 For Him GIVEAWAY!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Prolaris. All opinions are my own.

1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Chances are you might know and love someone who has had or will get a prostate cancer diagnosis. Prostate cancer is the SECOND leading cause of cancer death among men. I had no idea.

So, why are we talking to you, the “prostateless”, about this cancer?

If you’re anything like me, you’re the one making everyone’s doctors appointments, doing the late night WebMD Google searches, taking care of your kids, your husband and even harassing your parents about their health. True confession? I had to BET my dad $500 that he needed knee replacements. I’m the only one who got him to the doctor. But I lost . . . he actually needed BOTH of his HIPS replaced! But a good daughter puts it all on the line right? (We called the bet a draw btw . . .)

Turns out the “best long-term care insurance in our country is a conscientious daughter” proved by a recent healthcare study by a bunch of Stanford University Fellows (more here). You’re welcome dad!

So What If I Know Someone Who Gets Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer?

Here’s the cool thing. The Prolaris Test is a prostate cancer test that provides a new measure of the aggressiveness of an individual’s prostate cancer. Getting a “Prolaris Score” will give both the patient and the physician additional information about the cancer that no other test can. That impacts the kind of treatment that person you love will get as well as the side effects and outcomes. It’s such valuable information to have.  So if you know someone with a recent diagnosis point them to Prolaris.com. They can ask their doctor about it and odds are their insurance covers it.

$1,000 For You + $1,000 For Him

Mom, you have so many titles, perhaps the most important of which is CMO. Chief Medical Officer of your household.

My Little Pony: The Movie and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Lionsgate Premiere.

My Little Pony was all the rage when I was a kid.

 

My grandma gave me my first My Little Pony for my sixth birthday. Its name was Baby Glory, and I was in love.

Retro My Little Pony

 

I was excited to see My Little Pony make a comeback, but I knew Ponies were back for good when I sat down on the NYC subway across from this guy:

My Little Pony Costume

 

I’ll likely see a few more of these characters this weekend as Ponydemonium (I should probably Trademark that phrase) is in full force with the release of My Little Pony: The Movie, in theaters October 6th. Have you seen this trailer yet?

My Little Pony: The Movie – Coming to theaters October 6!

A dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 – Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity – embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their home.

I love it when big names get behind the mic for animated features, because it usually makes for a movie kids and adults can enjoy together. The Pony crew is voiced by an all-star cast, including Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana. The movie features original music and songs performed by Sia, Diggs, Saldana, Chenoweth and Blunt.

Rock Dog Movie Premiere and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Lionsgate.

A few years ago my nephew visited and asked where I kept my dog. I told him I didn’t have one, and he quickly let me know I was wasting my adulthood. I think he was onto something, but until I move out of my “no dogs allowed” apartment building in Manhattan, I have to get my puppy fix (not to be confused with “puppy fixed,” because those are two VERY different things) elsewhere.

That’s why I’m looking forward to the February 24th release of Rock Dog. It’s a movie about a Tibetan Mastiff who finds a radio and leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, but quickly sets in motion a series of unexpected events.

I’m such a sucker for movies that encourage kids to chase their dreams! Today’s Mama wants you to chase your dreams all the way to the theater. That’s why we’re giving away a Rock Dog movie prize pack that includes a $100 Visa gift card to see the film in theaters with your family, as well as a Rock Dog beanie, tambourine, and temporary tattoo.

Rock Dog Movie Giveaway

You’re sure to recognize and love the Rock Dog movie cast. Luke Wilson takes the lead, with Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, Mae Whitman, Jorge Garcia, Matt Dillon, and Sam Elliott all lending their voices. I can’t wait to see them do their thing on the big screen on February 24th!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Giveaway

Woo!

It’s time for a Girl’s Movie Night Out! I love, love, LOVED “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” when it came out in 2002…and apparently so did all of your since it holds the record for the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time.

Seems we can relate with the idea of big-wacky-family-shenanigans, eh?

And as all you know, those wacky families don’t really mellow with age, do they? Nope, we just settle into a big boisterous routine. :)

I for one, am looking forward to catching up with the Portokalos family when “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” arrives in theaters on March 25. Looking forward to catching up with John Corbett too. Ahem.
