March 1 is National Dress in Blue Day for colon rectal cancer awareness. There are no blue ribbons. Last October a local business made the front page of the local paper. He had a breast cancer promotion. I am a ten-year breast cancer survivor. I am for research for all cancer and last year entered a bra decorating contest for breast cancer awareness. He gave a 10 percent discount on a certain service. Ten people took advantage of the discount. The paper had a picture of his sign TOOT FO THE TA TA’s. NO one will be CLAPPING for my COLON.
The colon cancer awareness color is blue. There is a National Dress in Blue Day. If you are interested Google, Colon Cancer Alliance is a great organization with lots of information and support. My local area has nothing. Also Google Colon Club. These are my colon peeps. Males and females who have colon-rectal cancer under 50 and their caregivers. The Colon Club puts out a calendar of persons diagnosed under 50. The survivor stories are very moving. Sadly some of the models have passed. Yes I applied to be a calendar model last year and yes I was very relived not to be chosen.
When the updated Cowden’s Syndrome screenings were published. Someone started a thread on the article. I was hopeful someone else on the message board had Cowdens! Talk to your doctor if you have any kind of bathroom problem. Get a colonoscopy. Tell others.
