Hello Family & Friends!

As some of you may or may not know, I am on the committee putting together the 7th Annual Get Your Rear In Gear SF Bay Area to spread awareness about colon cancer. I've been on the committee from the 1st in-person 5k walk/run in 2016 to the latest virtual one in 2021. I am amazed on how our reach has grown and the the amount of impact we've made in communities all over the world.

Every year we provide colon cancer awareness and help low income, uninsured high-risk colon cancer patients in the local area receive the care they need.

Colon Cancer is the 2nd deadliest cancer but the most curable & treatable cancer if caught early on (almost 90-95% chance of survival)! Also, colon cancer has been rising in adults UNDER 50; 1 in 10 diagnosed with colon cancer are under the age of 50.

This hits home for me because my "uncle" aka "SF father" lost his 1yr battle to colon cancer and we truly believe that had he screened early, he may still be with us today. I've been on the committee of this race for the past 6 years because this cancer is curable and I want do everything I possibly can to prevent others from going through what my uncle and the family had to endure. So please help me spread the awareness and save people from this highly treatable cancer.

Please join (or donate to) the my virtual team "I Left My Colon in San Francisco" for the virtual event and challenges! (Would love to have you and your family as part of the team!)

Most importantly, spread the word! Please share with family & friends! Whether it is about the event or about colon cancer and the importance of pre-screening!

Thank you in advance for your support!
