Re: 2019 "On the Rise" Featured Survivor/Caregiver Applications

Thanks for bringing this up, OSM. The application has actually changed very little, but it's a lot more professional looking than it has been in years past -- it looked rather generic and was not branded, so we cleaned it up a little bit. There are three changes: a) we are now accepting applications...

Re: Tulane University Online Survey

Tulane University is working on a follow up to the original survey from a few years ago. As before, the information they sent us notes that "We are particularly interested in individuals with a history of colorectal cancer. The survey takes about 10 minutes and asks about people's beliefs about...

BrownBagger....lover of family, chopping wood, bountiful gardens, and good wine. You were one of the first to welcome me here, and I'm glad I was able to work with you over the years in your moderating duties. To call this type of SUCKNITUDE "major" doesn't even begin to scratch the surfac...

Re: Now in year 10 after Stage IIIb diagnosis

And CaliforniaBagMan's case is not an isolated one....Staci is 8+ years out from a Stage IIIb diagnosis and APR surgery as well. She has had a couple of surgeries since her original one to remove the scar tissue that has caused her to have blockages, but in each of those cases her doctors have not s...

Re: RIP Lindsey Motley, Miss March 2015 in the Colondar 2.0

Thanks, all. Lindsey posted here from time to time but spent a LOT more time connecting with people affected by CRC off of the board -- she'd "meet" them here and then extend the conversation to texts, phone calls, and notes. She was a very special lady to so many people and she will be gr...

So glad you and she were able to see each other during your MD Anderson trips. I HATE that your group has had two of its members leave us so soon.

RIP Lindsey Motley, Miss March 2015 in the Colondar 2.0

I'm saddened to have to report that The Colon Club has lost another of its Colondar models to this @#^%@$%^ disease. Lindsey Motley, Miss March 2015 in the Colondar 2.0, joined the angels yesterday afternoon, February 23, after having just turned 29 earlier this month. She leaves behind her husband,...

Re: Hoping to Share a Smile with you.

Thanks for the chuckle, Phuong! As for the TP discussion, my view is that if the patent application shows it coming from the top, that's the right way to do it....and I'll duck before I get something thrown at me! http://static4.businessinsider.com/image/550b2598ecad04cf649cedcd/124-year-old-patent-...

Re: colostomy irrigation

Staci irrigates every night...takes her about half an hour or so. She uses Hollister cones and sleeves, so let me know if you want/need item numbers and I can get them for you. She gets them from Edgepark as part of her normal supply order.

Re: O/T... Rant of major proportions !!!!

A variation on the "you can't fix stupid" theme....one that I constantly have to tell myself is "you can't care more than they do." I've wasted countless hours in my life trying to help people who aren't willing to help themselves. I understand that in some cases one might feel t...

Re: OT - where to find a running shirt....

We don't have any running shirts in the online store here on the site....so I'm ok with directing you over to sites that friends of ours in the CRC community run. Fight CRC has some good stuff in their store that is CRC-specific and good conversation starters. You can take a look here: http://store....
