I Wear Blue For MY Mom

Many of you know that my Mom is currently going thru treatment for Colon Cancer and I thank everyone for their continued well wishes & support. (if you'd like to read more about her battle, please scroll back thru the "Mom" label on my posts) I am embarraseed to admit just realized that March is National Colorectal Awareness Month. Please take just a moment of your time to learn about Colon Cancer - there's an easy to read fact sheet here.

You can order Awareness Bracelets here.

I ordered a bunch of wonderful stuff - at great prices! - from the Choose Hope site. They have some wonderful awareness items for all forms of cancer, including a fun "Cancer Sucks" line (which I got my Mom a sweatshirt that she absolutely loves!).

The 4th Annual "Scope It Out 5K" Run/Walk for colorectal cancer awareness will be held this Sunday, March 30, 2008, at 8am in West Potomac Park, Washington, D.C. For those interested, you can make an online donation here.

Read more about colon cancer, symptoms & prevention here at the Mayo Clinic site.

I just realized I've never told you that my paternal grandmother died from colon cancer when I was four. So, all the more reason this is dear to my heart too...

Why can't we have this kind of thing in the news, instead of what celebrity wore which lipstick this week? Hugs from this end!
