Please help me support Colon Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Colon Cancer Coalition's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.
Together, we can make a difference!

My Story: At age 50, I was told, "Schedule your colonoscopy...it's time." I did not. At age 51, I was told, "Schedule your colonoscopy...it's time." I did not. At age 53, ISU's Adventure program (online health and fitness) said, ""Schedule your colonoscopy...you get 75 bonus points." Who says NO to bonus points!!

For the past couple decades, I have met people with colon cancer. Some have survived. Some have not. No one in my family has ever had colon cancer, or any other colon problems. The people I have met had family history. Some did not. I got my colonoscopy just for the BONUS POINTS! And am I glad I did.

In November 2019, they removed three polyps, 2 were cancerous. In December 2019, I had surgery to remove my sigmoid colon due to Stage 1 cancer. I am now cancer free.

If you are a person of color over the age of 45 and you have NOT had a colonoscopy, call me. I will drive you to the appointment. It matters that much to me.
