Phuong -

Speaking of "Advocacy", do you know of any Colon Clubbers who will be going to Call on Congress this March?

Thanks.

All but one of the 2019 featured survivors and caregivers will be there. Our President, Trish Lannon, and our VP of Operations, Kristina Smith, will also attend. I'm sure there will be others, but I don't have a full list.

Here are the 2019 "On The Rise" Models. Most of them have already registered for the Call on Congress event, so if you are attending the event you will probably be seeing them there after you arrive.
