THE STORY:

My classmate's mom passed away at young age due to Colon Cancer this spring, leaving behind three children. We want to raise awareness of Colon Cancer with a Walk-a-thon fundraising event on Oct. 19. For each donation I receive (no lower limit and no upper limit!) I pledge to run one lap around the Glenwood field. The collected funds will all go to Colon Cancer Alliance, in memory of my classmate's mom - Joanna Dranikoff.

For Colon Cancer Awareness, I am sharing the following information. 

RISK FACTORS of Colon Cancer:

  • Individuals with a personal and/or family history of polyps or cancer -People over age 50
  • Those with ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease -Individuals with the genetic conditions HNPCC or FAP
  • Jews of Eastern European descent and certain ethnic groups including African Americans, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives and Latinos

SYMPTOMS

  • Change in bowel habits -Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool -Persistent abdominal discomfort
  • Nausea or vomiting -Unexplained weight loss
  • Chronic fatigue

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Get screened at age 50, or at 45 if you're African American, and even earlier if you are high risk
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Adopt a physically active lifestyle
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Don't use tobacco products
  • Limit alcohol intake
