My father David passed away from Colon Cancer in May of 1997. We all miss him terribly. I am 56 and when he passed away, I went for a colonoscopy that year and every year thereafter and so did my siblings and my fiance. At 56 I am OK and now and it will be every five years to have one done,unless I feel and see the signs of colorectal cancer. Even my 24 year old son Jason had a colonscopy last year but THANK GOD it was only benign polyps. EVERYONE WITH HISTORY or WITHOUT A HISTORY should go and get screened! It is not easy but WORTH EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE AND YOUR LOVED ONE’S LIVES!
Here’s my son JASON! I am so proud that he cares about his HEALTH and took my advice!
