While I do not post much, I have been here for a number of years and greatly appreciate those who volunteer their time,
energy and lives to this worthy cause.

I read here regularly and look forward to supporting your own efforts for our cause.

Thank you Phuong for stepping up to the challenge and offering your leadership to the ColonClub.

When I first developed rectal cancer, my anxiety led me to read the new posts on this website every day,and to post frequently also. I remember your posts along with others, including STARBUCKS and BROWNBAGGER. Unfortunately, most of them are now deceased.
Good luck on your new assignment and continued good health.
