    217 is the number now
    wow they are really joining this wonderful cause I am proud to be a member don't know how I joined but sure glad I did LOL

    I joined
    and invited my family and friends who are not already part of this board. I also plan to notify the TV and radio stations via email (I'm in TX now and not at home in Ohio) about colon cancer and the need for early detection. Maybe even get an interview with our onc. How awesome would that be?

    Great Job
    Great Job Sandy.. We're up to 250 Members on Facebook. Who would have thunk? Isn't it great how we're taking something so negative and turning into something positive? I love it!!

    Not to take away from this site...but if....
    we leave it all in this one thread and keep all postings on this one only we won't hold up anything new coming in for newbies or info. This is "cancer" info, I just want to ensure the integrity of the forum also. I think it will be fine if kept in this one thread...and yes keep the enthusiasm alive...we are gonna make it happen in March 2011.....Im wondering if maybe we can post up some personal testimonies on the facebook page...if so I would be willing to post one. Maybe simply for the people that have not been touched by this to understand a little of what families go through. If we touch one individual, one person, and they are caught early enough to never ever have to go through this then all will be worth it............Love to all, Buzz

    Here's the shirt I was
    Here's the shirt I was telling you about Brooks. Docs and Durses got a kick out of it when I wore it the day after my liver resection. So this is my survivor sign! Liked it enough to change my profile pic to it!

    Hey Buzz.... this is such a great idea. I had an idea for more exposure. How about a letter to the "ELLEN DEGENERES" show??? She sponsers breast cancer awareness and many many other fund raisers. I watch her show every day and have actually sent a few letters in the past about the semi's. However, I did not receive any response. My letters explained about CSN and I was seeking out a way for all of us to meet one another but expense was such a factor because so many are financially drained..... My hope was that she would sponser something for us....BUT... I did not have luck at the time. PERHAPS....this event would draw more interest to her show as it will be a National event. What ya think?? What we got to lose?? ELLEN is also on Facebook. I am heading to FB now to sign up for the walk. Let me know if you want more info and I can get you links to here webpage and FB. This is SOOOO exciting!!!

    It's a little hard to read
    It's a little hard to read Buzz....but says Cancer couldn't stop me even WHEN it tried. I have a sticker on my car that says. NICE TRY CANCER....but I'm still here~ Forever fighting the enemy. At least for the last 3 years I have been. STUPID C WORD!!!

    Good Idea
    But what about this, what if we ALL sent a letter, then maybe they would pay attention? Plus I bet if I wrote a standard letter, all my friends would print it, sign it and mail it too. What do you think Jen, should we show Ellen what we are made of??? Just let me know.

    Jenn.......
    Keep firing emails and notes to her and maybe she will sometimes soon reply. and yes talk about the walk would also be something else to send to her. I think if this gets big enough "then" they might start to take notice...it usually takes a great event for many people to decide they want to be a part of it...let me know if you need some added help with this....Thanks, Love and Hope, Buzz

    ya'll are the shizzle....... :)

    BETH....
    Great idea about the letters all being signed and sent from friends. It might make the show take notice if they get all these letters coming in on the same subject. I will follow suit and do the same with my friends.... I say...YES!...lets do it.... get some action going.

    Icarper2......... Way to go on the Oprah email.... She and Ellen are good friends... I will have to mention in my letter to Ellen that she better get the ball rollin before Oprah gets a jump on her!!!
