    and I haven't been able to get in yet...
    I have to get in today and see this...My wife admitted to me last night when I asked her about searching for it that she was trying to stay away from all things cancer, that makes her sad. Well, I guess I understand her situation but I don't know how to get in there and find it...Where theres a will though theres a way. I am gonna create my own FB page ...Thanks again Brooks...and I am getting more mail, thanks all for the help on this...I am looking for a March Date to go full blown with this...and sometimes in March for the Walk to happen........I may be asking for 1 or more reps in each state to do some of the media attention getting for the walk planned March 2011...also to start maybe emailing friends and having them email their friends etc etc to get out the word . We will try and keep all of this posted up so that everyone can keep abreast of things happening. All brainstorming is more than welcome, you are all a part of this, you are survivors......Thanks again guys and gals.....Buzz

    210...amazing!
    I am banging the pots but my feet are too numb to stomp right now. The FB page looks real good. I invited friends & family but most of them seem too busy with Mafia Wars. Shame on them! My daughter joined up though and she will help if needed.

    Congrats! You have done a good job as well as all of your helpers.

    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?

    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!
