mar 28 rally in DC

Postby ranger » Thu Mar 01, 2012 10:42 am

Hi All, this is from a friend at Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in DC. I'm trying to be positive about "awareness" campaigns, so I'll be there, to vote with my neuropathetic feet.

Wanted to make you aware of an event on March 28 at 5:30 pm - it's a rally on the Capitol grounds to raise awareness around colon cancer and the importance of screenings.

Here is the flyer -- I plan to be there! It's co-hosted by Chris4Life and Colon Cancer Alliance. ... ncer-rally
colon resection 3/09
liver resection and takedown 8/09
11 rounds of folfax, avastin. plus AM655 or placebo, completed jan 2010
hernia repair 3/11 ... 100303900/
age 69, never thought I'd make it. happy.
NED a long time.
Essential Thrombocytosis, monitoring
still here.
