How is it said? Be careful what you wish for?

I have been hoping to find a way to communicate and educate on the subject of colorectal cancer. Along with CaringBridge, I have been writing on my own blogspot as well as Blog For a Cure. My hope was the more I wrote, the more the subject would be "Googled" and my journey would be read and the message spread. This is not just a disease of the old!!!

It worked! The Montel Williams show contacted me today. A producer from the show ran across my story and found it inspiring. After a bit of discussion, I was invited to share my story. What a gift! Dick and Eileen will be joining me and featured on the show as well. We head to New York next week for taping Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The show is focusing on leaving a legacy. Amazing, as that very subject has been weighing heavy and working on my emotions at a higher level as of late

I am fully aware that I am no different than any other cancer survivor fighting their own battle. I will not question why my blog caught the attention of the show. I do know I will do my best to represent all of us surviving and living with this daily.

Wish us luck! I'm looking forward to updating all of you upon our return.

You go and spread the word this is no longer an old man disease. Things need to change and prevention needs to be in the limelight. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy the city.

That's terrific news! Please be sure to spread the word that this can happen to ANYONE and I know you will represent all of us well. God Bless and tell them that we are keeping the faith that a cure will be found someday soon if more people join the fight to find it.

Good for you. and Thank you for your advocacy. My grandfather had cc at the same age i got it. My dad and two brothers - pre cancerous polpyps. And my other brother that is a paramedic, he wont have a colonoscopy. Colon cancer needs more exposure.
I hope you find the perfect words to express yourself. Good for you.

I will pray that you find the right words to tell the world about early detection and spur public awareness.
We'll be very interested in hearing about your trip.
