Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Hi everyone!  March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month.  My father is a colon cancer survivor, so I know first hand how terrible the disease is.  My dad was lucky that he caught it in time for treatment.  Many people are not as fortunate.  Doctors recommend colon cancer screening for those aged 50 and older.  If you have someone in your family who has had the disease, you should get checked NOW...even if you are younger than 50.  Colonoscopies are generally painless procedures that save lives!  Get screened today!  Don't wait for symptoms...usually by the time they show's too late to do anything about the cancer.

There are some fabulous shops on Etsy that are donating either all or a portion of proceeds from items they are selling to cancer-related charities or they are giving the money directly to dear friends fighting cancer to offset medical costs.  Here are some pics of colon cancer themed merchandise they have listed.  If you are interested in any of the items just click on the picture and it will take you to the listing.  You can get some great handmade items and know that you have contributed to organizations involved in the prevention of cancer or helping those affected by cancer.  Shop for a good cause!

Love the name of this thoughts exactly!

Prayers for those affected by the earthquake and tsunami

Just a short post today.  Wanted to send out prayers to those affected by the earthquake and tsunami.  My thoughts are with those who have lost their homes, and loved ones.  I am hoping that Hawaii and the west coast of the U.S. are not affected greatly by the tsunami.
