In 2013 I was having cramps in my stomach and thought it was nothing. After my family, mainly Diane and Dena basically forced me to go to the ER, it was discovered that I had a tumor in my colon. Scared to death, we started the plan, surgery followed by 12 chemo treatments. It was very tough, but I was very very lucky to have found it so early. I was stage 2b.
Colon cancer is treatable if found early. Borland and Groover performed a Colonoscopy and discovered the tumor. Detection procedures are very simple and could save your life. I am proud to say that I have been all good since my surgery.
I met April while working at Baptist Hospital. She noticed my Borland and Groover colon cancer awareness bracelet and we struck up a conversation. Turns out we had the same cancer, same surgeon and same Oncologist firm. Until meeting her, I had never thought about bringing attention to Colon Cancer. She told me to be I should be proud of my journey and try to help others. So, we have decided that every March we would walk/run the March to Get Screened Colon Cancer Awareness walk that is sponsored by Borland and Groover. We try to raise as much money and more importantly as raise as much awareness for this disease as we can. Sadly we lost April this past February. She had such a profound affect on my life. I am sure she did on most of yours also. He family has kind of adopted me!!! LOL
I know she is watching over us know, nudging me to continue this journey. I am please to announce the WE will again this year have a TEAM!!!
