Rock The Route!!

Please help me support Colon Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my attempt to "Rock The Route!!" http://route66marathon.com!  Every dollar I raise will advance the Colon Cancer Coalition's great cause! 

In June 2019 at age 57, I was diagnosed with colon cancer, had an emergency colostomy, and began my cancer journey.  A year of chemotherapy, a surgery and 2 bouts of c diff and my life was changed forever.  To think all that could probably have been avoided with screening. Without the care of Dr.'s Brautnick, Rogers, Young, the nurses and staff of Highlands Oncology in Northwest Arkansas, family and friends I wouldn't be able to do this. So to give back, I'm attempting my first full marathon and raising money to help bring awareness to this cause.  Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too. Together, we can make a difference!

Thank you!!

Get Screened!! The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) recommendsexternal icon that adults age 45 to 75 be screened for colorectal cancer. The decision to be screened between ages 76 and 85 should be made on an individual basis. If you are older than 75, talk to your doctor about screening. People at an increased risk of getting colorectal cancer should talk to their doctor about when to begin screening, which test is right for them, and how often to get tested. Several screening tests can be used to find polyps or colorectal cancer. The Task Force outlines the following colorectal cancer screening strategies. It is important to know that if your test result is positive or abnormal on some screening tests (stool tests, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and CT colonography), a colonoscopy test is needed to complete the screening process. Talk to your doctor about which test is right for you.
