I want to take a moment and use my blogging site for a very important service announcement. I want to address a topic that is very near and dear to my heart. October is Breast Cancer month … and all the pink is popping up. I am in no way demeaning breast cancer or those who suffer from it. I am a survivor myself but not from breast, from Colon. I was diagnosed 5 years ago this past August with Stage III Colon Rectal Cancer. During my journey I blogged about it at www.mymomhasbuttcancer.blogspot.com . It was awful experience, however its one that I am eternally grateful for. Nobody wants to hear the big C. It changes your life, you can never return. Even when they say its gone, the thought never is. I was so embarrassed when I found out. We called it Butt Cancer as a way to make it seem more light hearted for our young children. So as we enter October with all the pink ribbons and breast cancer awareness, I would like everyone to to join my friends at the Colon Cancer Alliance with another mission..
Please DO NOT DIE from EMBARRASSMENT. Nobody wants to talk about their butts, several years ago women did not want to talk about their breast. Look at the response now. I can only hope that we will be able to bring as much attention to Colon Cancer as has been brought to breast.
