Recently, Lisa wrote us and shared her FAP to J-Pouch Story.  FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) is a genetic disorder that causes polyps and often cancer in the colon. It aggressively runs in families as you can see in Lisa’s story, but there is little awareness of the disease in the public.  With March being Colon Cancer Awareness Month, it is excellent to bring attention both to Colon Cancer screening, as well as, awareness towards FAP.

FACTS from the Colon Cancer Alliance:

—  1 out of 8 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer.

—  90% of colon cancer is treatable.

—  To learn more about Colon Cancer and early screening visit www.ccalliance.org to learn more accurate information about early detection, symptoms, etc…

We’ve often discussed Colon Cancer on this site in various ways, here is a flashback to some of our colon cancer awareness posts:

Please post your comments about your experience with Colon Cancer, any awareness is good awareness.

    First, Pinterest users should have more creative options to customize the home page.
    This tool (once called Pin – Clout) is very similar to Facebook Insights.
    There are different ways on getting invited
    to Pinterest.

    represent the state of well-being and degree of improved health resulting from actions undertaken by an individual to promote and achieve the goal of improved health.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

    Typically, parents are attracted to the In – Step Quick N Lite Bicycle Trailer (QL152) because of
    the low price. It can be stored in a car trunk as
    is, or covered with a custom nylon bike bag for easy portability.
    The building itself appeared to be an old 5 and 10 or hardware store, lot of square footage, and loads
    and loads of bicycles.

    The best tip that most brand-new your net biz owners can ever get their hands on would be
    to always beware on dealing with other individuals online.
    Because web advertising has taken the spotlight in the current years,
    low life scammers have actually likewise seen it to be a good
    venue to swindle excellent and truthful people’s
    money.
    Assess your home’s curb appeal and make some enhancements.
    Your houses ought to be attractive enough that house hunters would believe it is worth purchasing.
    Do not settle for a mediocre look. Put in the best devices
    and brighten your residence. The point is to make your residence stick out.

    And the best you can do is to highlight the finest
    areas of your home.

    Most of the times, the ad sales representative will be nervous to tell
    you the specials they have offered. If they do not offer, ask.
    You might feel awkward, but it’s OKAY to request a
    savings. That’s how advertisement companies get
    fantastic rates for their clients.
    The next step is to find someone to host your internet site.
    Once again, places like GoDaddy have hosting strategies for
    under $10 a month. HostGator.com is another really great hosting company, and is utilized by several “heavy hitter”, expert
    types, of internet marketing. The discounts can go deeper if you
    have a number of web sites.
    Blogging for cash is a simple task that will certainly need you to post the blogs and
    discussing item, brand names, or any word that
    might relate a site or back an item, brand or its web website.
    In turn, they will pay you for advertising them. This is extremely easy since all you have to do is produce a blog
    site, post it someplace very relevant or in your own blog-site.

    I internet marketing discovered that it wasn’t that hard after all.

    I chose to reduce the learning curve for you so you too
    can start hosting webinars yourself and doing this on a budget too.

    Think of that: every week, that chain invested a fortune to draw customers to its doors, and then continued to drive a number of
    those clients away. All because marketing and logistics were
    not able to communicate.
    I am involved with advertising online and I also recently began my own vending business in Ottawa called “Something to chew on Beverage Service.” I
    was as soon as where you may really well be right now in your very own life.
    All I can say is have a little faith in yourself.
