    I couldn't agree more
    I even wrote an email to the Activia folks about their ads for donating to breast cancer when you buy their product.

    I told them that while a cure for breast cancer was a good thing, that I thought since their product was about good digestive health they might have wanted to consider donating to colorectal cancer research!

    Guess maybe we need to put a bow on a butt to make it sexy!

    Good topic...glad you started this thread.

    Hugs,

    Marie who loves kitties

    WRITE ACTIVIA
    I went and also wrote an email to Activia folks, and asked why they couldn't change it to blue and give to research to colon cancer, with the idea of their digestive health that they are claiming.
    I hope many on the board will do the same thing.
    HERE, HERE LoveKitties!!!!!
    That was a great idea.

    Not sexy enough
    When I was first dx'd my youngest son noticed all the fund raising and attention paid to breast cancer. He said the same thing, boobs are sexy colons are not.
    My kids have managed to do a few small things. My daughter works in a gourmet choffee shop and the owner does a fund raiser for different organizations each month. Of course this month it's breast cancer. He asked for other suggestions and my daughter told him my mom has colon cancer and I would like to raise money for that. He totally agreed so they are putting together everything to make that happen. Likewise my sons employer does the same type of thing and he to suggested doing a fund raiser during colon cancer awareness month like they do for breast cancer each october and they agreed. It's not much but it is a start and I am proud of my kids for being able to be open about what I'm going through and trying to do what they can. Much love.

    Your Children
    How absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!! I'm so darn proud of them, and I don't even know them, I know your pride must be showing through and through!!!!

    How about
    How about,give to colorectal cancer research,"the butt you save may be your own."Our car club is going to put on a car show next year at a local hospital for cancer,all cancers,not just breast cancer.Maybe someone should put on a national car show for the same thing.It's just a thought.

    I like the thought
    Car show season is over here, but maybe I can check into one next spring for COLON CANCER.
    Thanks for the idea hun.

    Dearest diz
    what you say is absolutely true. It is as if the world cannot bring themselves to say or thinkpoop colon or rectal. Oprah had a great opportunity this week when she interviewed Ryan O'Neil and he was weeping about his love Farrah.....but was there one mention of the dreaded words?? NO I am not criticizing Ryan but I also get the feeling when breast is involved there is a deluge of pink....you can buy any number of pink products to support the breast campaign. My onc even said once she feels badly for her colons....they get no support.

    So dizz.....I have no answer but what you say is very true...we definitely are lacking sex appeal mags

    I don't watch Oprah
    But dang, what a missed opportunity, that no mention of colon cancer was mentioned.
    Very sad, very sad.

    I agree!
    I've thought about this a lot. I love my cancer sisters who have been through breast cancer, but I do wonder, "What about us?" People really don't like to talk about it so much. I even had a woman ask me about my cancer after she saw my Relay shirt. The first question of course was, "Breat cancer?" When I told her no, I am a colon cancer survivor, she gave me a shocked look, "I didn't know women could get colon cancer!" *L* We certainly have the parts, so why not?

    *hugs*

    damn she has a hot looking colon
    Yep, you have never heard anyone say, damn she has a hot looking colon.

    It comes down to when we were born we went looking for boobs and never stopped. We are prewired and programmed to love boobs.

    Kerry
    Yes, I searched my blond headed mind, and nope, can honestly say, no one has ever said to me, "My dear, my darling, you have such a hot looking colon!!!"
    You do make me laugh.

    For those interested
    I follow a blog that I think is right on the money (my twisted sense of humor). I'm not sure if some might find it offensive as it is a rather humorous take on colon cancer. She is a cartoonist. So, if you might be interested here is Amy's blog about her colorectal cancer experiences:
    http://cancerissofunny.blogspot.com/

    PS: she is working on getting the colon cancer logo on a NASCAR

    thanks Lori
    It gave me quite a few laughs!!!!
    Thank you for sharing her blog site.

    Thong
    I was thinking I should wear underwear for this daring um, derriere, challenge.
    I'm thinking a thong would work best, female boxer shorts might "cover" up the whole idea.

    dizz
    dizz I really think you are onto something....yup gotta be a thong.

    the colon club has done the calendar of fronts....my daughter always teases me that my abdomen is enough to terrify small children. Actually I kind of get a kick out of the look on young residents' faces when they first encounter the 64 year old, bit tubby belly with appendix, ceasarean,colon, liver resection liver resection again and a few biopsies on the boobs...oh dear lol

    You all make me laugh....
    Where do you think semicolon came from?

    Our T-shirt, courtesy of our host and hostess, from CP8, said "What's up yours?" across the back...

    Stirred many reactions in downtown Ft Worth...much of which ended in alot of butt holdin'!

    You'd Think
    that a country as obsessed with T's & A's as we are that it would get more attention.
    It's probably because poop comes out of "there"

    Here's a slogan...
    "Fight Colon Cancer - The **** You Save Could Be Your Own"
