The Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA's team w/best record)are having a Colorectal Awareness month, game tonight. Sponsored by the Cleveland Clinic, everyone attending recieves a BLUE Clev. Cavs shirt. Would be nice to see the whole crowd turn blue.. :) Wish I was going but I'll be watching it on TV...

Yep, they are even having the onc nurses at the game to hand out flyers explaining the signs to look for if you have no family history and are under 50, that 50 is the recommended screening age, and 10 yrs prior if there is family history. They are doing it in questionnaire form.

The plan is for the nurses to be able to answer questions and steer folks to the Cleveland Clinic. I think it is a wonderful idea and hope it catches on. We can use this as a springboard to get other venues to help spread the word.

Go Cavs!

Outwit. Outplay. Outlast.
