In the Christmas letters I sent out this year, I included a paragraph about EC, getting tested and a link to the ECAN site. We've already had a note from one friend saying he was having a physical this month and will talk to his doc about it and thanked us. Then today, we had an email from an old friend who had a colonoscopy scheduled last week and, after our letter, asked to have an endoscopy done also. He hasn't gotten results yet. But, yay for them!
Now, the MOST frustrating thing to me: our kids--son and daughter in their 40's. I've sent them the ECAN link, told them of all the people their ages who are being affected and stories from here, begged, talked about their responsibilities to their families, etc. They are really smart, responsible people and greatly supportive of us. But, to them, this falls in the category of unnecessary medical testing. Any suggestions or other supporting evidence I can use?
