All about Mr. May 2010

One of my friends and teammates on CANCER TO 5K, Mr. Shawn Felty (read his great BLOG here: All It Takes Is Guts!), just happens to be the featured model/colon cancer survivor for May in the NEW
2010 Colondar!

The 2010 Colondar is another stunning take on fourteen colorectal cancer survivors all diagnosed under the stereotypical age of 50. As with every Colondar, the featured survivors proudly show off their surgical scars and share a snippet of their extraordinary personal stories, proving that this is a disease that can happen to anyone, at any age.

Along with the photos and inspirational stories of hope and survivorship, the 2010 Colondar features U.S. holidays, facts about colorectal cancer and a resource page. It is especially encouraging for people recently diagnosed, or for friends or family to be used as a reminder of why they should get screened.

All the proceeds from this Colondar go toward The Colon Club. The Colon Club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of colorectal cancer in out-of-the-box ways. Our goals are to educate as many people as possible, as early as possible, about the risk factors and symptoms of colorectal cancer, and for people to get screened when it's appropriate for them.

Just another amazing group of Cancer Survivors finding amazing ways to get the word out and LiveSTRONG!

Now what are you waiting for? GO BUY YOUR COLONDAR!
