I just want to say how sorry I am about your losses. I lost my father to colon cancer when I was 17. I'm glad you are interested in advocacy work - we can't have enough voices out there spreading the word about this disease.

Excellent! I hope there's a good turnout! If it's an annual event, I'll send a few relatives next year. I'm no runner myself, but my cousins are. Damp, but pleasant weather today in the Northern Virginia area. Good for a run.

I'd like to see television advertising about the need for screening and raising awareness of symptoms - and not just focusing on the over 50s.

This is the voice of Tony Snow, a wonderful human being.
