I wrote this last March, and here I am, March 1st of 2017 and am a colorectal cancer survivor.
And this comic still makes me laugh.
And it's still relevant.
Because not much has changed as far as cancer advocacy goes. People hear the word, "cancer" and immediately shut off. Characters in movies and TV shows are still dying of cancer at a crazy high rate...but when an actual person with cancer speak up, we change the channel.
People are still getting colon cancer though, and dying of it. It sucks, but it's true.
So what does it take to get your attention? Kittens? So be it! Whatever works. But now that I have your attention, learn about colon cancer and why it matters at Fight Colon Cancer and Colon Cancer Alliance!
