Have you ever gotten an email from Change.org? UPDATE 2/4

Postby Nik Colon » Tue Jan 20, 2015 11:21 pm

Have you ever signed any? I have in the past a couple, but recently got this one which I thought was ironic or they see my interests. Either way, here it is.

I signed it anyway. What do you think?

I don't know how they got your email address but this a great petition. Dawn Eicher is working hard advocating for earlier detection of CRC in young people, knowing the incidence rate is going up. Thanks for signing it!

Sadly, I don't think they give CRC much attention even though it's the 3rd, I believe, most common cancer. I never even knew anything about it until I was dx. Everyone knows about breast and lung cancer but sadly not this, well at least imo.

Just wanted to ask if people would be willing to sign this. Not sure if it will help but I figure it can't hurt. Please read and think about signing.

Also, if you scroll down it gives links to other sites including THIS ONE!

Thanx,
Nik

This is FANTASTIC!!!! I know Dawn. I'm glad to hear that her petition is circulating....

Please, if everyone could sign it and pass it on, it would be great. There are so many of us ignored.

I signed a petition last year regarding colon cancer or Cancer in general to help petition for support. I now get email about incidents ..like the one I got Monday...."the man who killed my mom is one parole from freedom".....or .....son was handcuffed by police fell out of boat and they watched him drown" .......please sign petition. I hadn't realized it's like reading stories from a enquire magazine of strange incidents but now they want you to sign a petitions against whoever....Sorry I can't sign something when I don't know the full story.

I appreciate any organization that fights for a cause but Change.org was not what I expected. I'm sure there are articles which I would have been interested in but I have reach the point now where I just trash the emails.

I'll be more than happy to sign this petition because it something that is very important to everyone's health...

I understand, they send random ones, butt this one was personal so I figured it couldn't hurt.
