Hey amazing support group. I've decided to participate in the Colon Cancer Coalition's "Get Your Rear in Gear" race. This year it's virtual, of course, so i am pledging to walk 53,300 steps, representing one step for every person who will pass away from Colorectal Cancer in 2020 alone. I've picked the goal of $1,700 to fundraise because the number 17 has come up a few times during this journey. First, it was the 5 year chance of survivorship i was given my the first doctor i talked to (he sure doesn't know me) and secondly and way more importantly, it was the percentage my tumors shrunk after 3 months of chemo and drug trial. Seems like a number i should pay attention to, right? Want to help? You can join me in walking 53,200 steps by September 19th.
