Testing and follow up.

This letter was in my newspaper today regarding Breast Cancer Awareness Month and other cancers. The writer stresses it is urgent to follow-up with results.

Celebrating the Second Decade of Survival

10 years ago today, I woke up with symptoms that led to my diagnosis and treatment of Stage II colon cancer. It was the day after Thanksgiving or "Black Friday" in the United States. I chose to celebrate by helping out my local Relay for Life. You can read about here: http://coalregionvoic...

Celebrate 10 years?

On 12/23/2012, I will be celebrating 10 years of survival and looking forward to another decade of survival from Stage 2b colon cancer.

Has anyone did anything exciting? I am looking to maybe have a fundraiser and donate to my local Relay for Life.

BTW, I haven't been here in awhile.

Re: Healthcare Reform

The main thing I took from the article is the screening rates even at "age eligible" times. I think they are very low for people who need them and would "probably" be covered by insurance.

I was at a small college football game over the weekend. Not that I get really upset, but there was a sority collecting in the stands for breast cancer during the 3rd quarter.

Re: Colonothon

With any event you need to start small and what you could handle. Be creative. Our group also partners with ACS and a few local hospitals for an age specific database.

Re: Pink Strikes Again

Maybe this will cheer you up, but at my 25th reunion in July, most of the females were comparing boob jobs. In the end, it's all about the boob.
