My sister was 26 when she was diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer. She was 30 when she passed, 3 months shy of her 31st birthday. This past December I lost a friend, Gloria Lamma to colo-rectal cancer. She was 34. She only got to fight for a year. My hopes are to raise money to help CCA raise more awareness to the ones that are under the required age for a colonoscopy. Both 30 and 34 are too young to lose to something that can be preventable.
Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death. But it doesn't have to be this way; through screening, it is one of the most preventable diseases.
I've teamed up with the Colon Cancer Alliance’s National Dress in Blue Day. I’m raising funds, promoting screening and honoring those affected by colon cancer.
Please make a contribution today. Your gift benefits the Colon Cancer Alliance’s prevention, research and patient support programs and brings us one step closer to a future free of colon cancer.
Thank you for helping the Colon Cancer Alliance knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers.
