The Undy 5000

As most of you know, last fall my sister-in-law was diagnosed with colon cancer (due to a genetic condition). I am happy to say that as of right now she has completed her treatment and is doing well. :)

This summer, my family and I are participating in a 5K to support the Colon Cancer Alliance. According to their website:

"The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is the oldest and largest national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colorectal cancer. In order to increase rates of screening and survivorship, the CCA provides patient support, public education, supports research and conducts advocacy work across America.

As the Voice of Survivors, the CCA works as an advocate for colorectal cancer patients and their families. The CCA offers information and support from the first-hand experience of survivors and others whose lives have been touched by this disease."

Please consider joining me in support of this cause. Click here to donate!
