With an extraordinarily heavy heart, I have to add my father, Aziz B., to this list. He was diagnosed stage IV on December 22, 2009, and passed away March 1, 2010. His fight was too short and too tough. I miss him so much every single day. But his battle has led to numerous family members getting colonoscopies, so maybe what he went through will end up saving someone else's life.
My father was an amazing father, grandfather, and friend, and I hate this disease for taking him away from us.
