Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!!

Did you know that colorectal cancer—cancer of the colon or rectum—is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States from the cancers that affect both men and women?

150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year.

Check your ass, people!!  Got something weird going on?  Maybe your bowel movements have changed?  Maybe there's some blood in your stool?  Unexplained fatigue?  Pain?  Please get checked out.  Yes, it can be embarrassing to talk to your doctor about your butt.  GO ANYWAY. 

I'm wearing blue today, and then on each of my chemo days this month (March 8th being the first).  Join me!  Yay for awareness!!
