Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the US – but it doesn’t have to stay this way. Make a difference and help raise awareness for colon cancer by participating in Dress in Blue Day on Friday, March 4th. Learn how you can get involved at www.dressinblueday.com
This is my request to you, to please dress in blue tomorrow or share with someone our story as it may save a life.
This past year had more downs than ups, we will admit that but we have drawn closer as a family in ways we never would have expected and our daughter knows more about the colon than any seven-year-old needs to know. Is that a good thing? : )
Hubby has a colonoscopy scheduled for this month and with the all clear from that he will be able to have his chemo port removed. There are some residual chemo side effects he deals with on a daily basis but you would never know it as he is a strong man and complaining "isn't his thing" as he will tell you. He also draws strength by following the stories of so many children who are battling cancer - they are true heroes.
I mostly, thank God EVERY DAY that my husband is still here with us and that he was not afraid to go to his doctor with his symptoms. Do the same in your life. Be it trouble-breathing, arm pain, head pain or whatever it possibly could be now or down the road. Yeah, sometimes it is stress but what if it isn't? Is it worth the risk?
My future posts won't be as serious, not to worry, this one just needed to be said.
Have a wonderful weekend ahead and if you think of it, wear a little blue tomorrow.
Thanks all! Abundant blessings to each and every one of you.
Proud wife of the "enigma" Don : )
Enigma was the term his surgeon gave him when he was diagnosed.
