My name is Ethan Farma. As my Bar Mitzvah Project I have chosen to run and raise money for colon cancer awareness and research. I am part of the Fox Chase Cancer Center GYRIG team because my dad, Jeffrey Farma, works there and treats patients with colon cancer.
I have chosen this project because my family has been affected by this disease. Three people in my family have passed away from this terrible cancer
My uncle Mark Halaway passed away in his thirties and two of my great grandparents. Colon cancer is a horrific disease that can be prevented with early screening.
Please help support me in this cause and for my Mitzvah Project.
