This post is very different from what I usually write about. Let me explain.
As you know, my mission is to help women married to doctors go through the medical journey easier / wealthier / happier. You shouldn’t expect posts of this type to show up often.
I interrupt my regular posts for this cause:
March is Colon Cancer Awareness month!
With a husband who is going into Gastroenterology Fellowship this July (my kids are already calling him a butt doctor btw 😂), colon cancer awareness is a cause that’s very near and dear to our hearts.
The least I can do is help educate others.
Real fact: Colon cancer is very treatable if detected early, but it’s still the #2 leading cause of cancer death
Friends, we have to change this.
If it’s that treatable and that many people are dying because of it, we HAVE to increase the rate in which people are being screened.
Please take a few seconds to reads these facts from the Cleveland Clinic.
If you have PARENTS over the age of 50, ask them this:
“Mom & dad, have YOU been getting screened regularly?!”I know, it’s not a fun topic, but you’re the spouse of a doctor. What do they expect? 😉
You can follow me on Pinterest where I pin info about colon cancer this month. Or just follow me because we’re friends!
I’m hugging and supporting you ❤️
To strong medical families,
