Marilyn Monroe Donates to Our 14th Annual Food Drive

What could be better than our 14th Annual Food Drive supporting the East Fort Bend Food Pantry? Nothing, other than Marilyn Monroe making a surprise visit to my office after having spent some time bringing joy to others by passing out candy on Halloween along with Freddy Krueger and Edward Scissorhands. Many of you may not know, but Marilyn still gets around pretty good after all these years. She is still beautiful, vivacious, and brings joy where ever she goes. She also is very caring and brought us food for our annual food drive. I encourage all of you who live close by our office to bring us a bag of food for the needy families in Fort Bend.

This year more than ever we need your help with food or monetary contributions. With the economic situation to Hurricane Ike, people in our community have been feeling the crunch. I know many of you feel it too. So whatever you can do to help is always appreciated by so many. As always, I will give back to you, even though you don't expect anything in return. So here's how it works:

Patient Appreciation Day
We are throwing a huge community and patient appreciation day party for everyone who brings food or cash. Plus, we will have free massages, treatments and lots of door prizes donated by our community businesses such as:

Starbucks, CiCi's Pizza, The Fort Bend Star, Margie Connolly with My Personal Fitness, Christina Collins with Passion Parties, Claudia De La Parra-Registered Massage Therapist, Fed-Ex Kinkos, and many more....

Please come if you can. You will love it, but remember you can bring food anytime. Please join us on...

Thursday, November 20th
9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Barrett Chiropractic Clinic
2853 Dulles Avenue
Missouri City, Texas

Together we can make a difference in other people's lives!

Now, here's a big, big, big gift!! For someone you love or just want to see get healthy... A TOTALLY FREE first chiropractic visit! A Pro-Aduster analysis, conversation with me, a book on health and more. All this for one bag of food.

Those of you who know me will understand that I am serious about people getting well and avoiding unneccessary drugs and surgery. Now, more than ever, with economic strain, pressures from everywhere diminishing and disappearing health benefits, etc, etc, people are breaking down physically, chemically and emotionally. It doesn't look to be getting better anytime soon.

So if you or someone you know is experiencing more health problems, more anxiety, more stress, ask yourself or them, "Is it going to get better on its own?" Of course not! Waiting until the body breaks down is the most costly thing a person can do. It is time to be pro-active in our health choices. If we are not, physical, family and financial ruin may be just around the corner.

Don't take my word for it. Come talk with some of our patients whose family members this happened to. Call the hospitals, find out how much a stay there costs. Discover what surgeries run. With less and less insurance coverage, many people will be in for a very rude wake up call if they don't actively pursue health.

We can help in many ways. Tell your friends and loved ones to come in for a check up now before stress tears them down! This is the perfect time.

One bag of food equals a Pro-Adjuster evaluation, conversation and help!

We take most insurance and if you or your company has been paying for it...use it now before the end of the year. Otherwise, you have thrown that money in the trash.

For those who don't partake in regular chiropractic treatments, whether from me or another chiropractor, ask my good friend, Marilyn Monroe about the benefits of chiropractic care and nutrition.

Not only is she a patient, but her sister is a chiropractor in Dallas and her grandfather is still practicing. He is over 80 years old! Marilyn and her family reap the benefits of chiropractic care. Living a drug free, neurologically balanced life means a healthy life. Never without problems, but a higher level of health.

Remember, health is to be actively pursued daily and is a process. If you are lucky you may get to visit with Marilyn from time to time at my office. Another fun benefit of getting chiropractic care, maintaining your wellness through periodic adjustments and balanced nutritional intervention.

Contacting Marilyn...
