Colon cancer in men and women under the age of 50 is on the rise! Too often, young adults are diagnosed at much later stages with poor prognosis. This needs to change! I am so passionate about the need to increase awareness of this issue as well as direct more research dollars to examine the cause associated with these rising statistics that I decided to join Team Colon Cancer Challenge in this NYC half marathon. I am training hard and hoping to raise enough money to benefit the Never Too Young Coalition. The Coalition was proudly founded by the Colon Cancer Alliance and is a collaboration of colon cancer advocacy groups, comprehensive cancer centers and major research institutions, all united in the fight to take on young onset-colorectal cancer through action, public education and research. Please contribute to this life saving cause!
