Dear friends and family,
Two and a half years ago today I was a different person. I was totally consumed with the fear that my condition would cause much pain to me and my family especially my children. I lived through the worst days in my life and I went through an emotionally roll a coaster everyday.
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 did't want to tell anyone about what was happening to me. Today I don't feel that way anymore. I want to share my experience so many more people think about colon cancer screaning so they can get treatment and be cured. I still don not feel totally cured, because doctors gave me 95% five year survival rate and there is always that 5% in me that is always like a little thorn that makes you remember about what happened.
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.
Today Tuesday January 28th a very good friend on mine is being admitted for surgery. In this case, it was his doctor who fail to tell him that he had to be screened. Two years ago a dear uncle passed away in Venezuela. He was diagnosed with 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.
Love to you all,
