Reason #31
You just don’t.

Good reason, huh? Sorry for the tardiness of my last post. I didn’t quite get to it by the 31st, and the last thing I wanted was for it to be an April Fools joke!

For my last reason though, I thought I’d take the liberty and ask everyone to take me seriously for a second and just trust me on this one. I’ve had a blast shedding some light and humor on what some of us who’ve been through the colon cancer ringer go through. Instead of sounding like whiney babies all of the time, most of us make the most out of it and find a way to laugh about some of the things we go through… most days. Hopefully you’ve been able to laugh with me and get a new perspective about life without colon!

But on the serious side, I ask that you also take to heart some of the pleas to prevent colon cancer if you can. I’ve said it before, but being a cancer survivor is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it’s given me a passion for life and health that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I’ve got a perspective that’s unique, and I would not trade it for anything.

But, with that being said — I would absolutely go back and prevent getting the disease if I knew I was going to get it. Living without a colon isn’t always fun, and pretty annoying some days. I’ve given 31 reasons why it’s often inconvenient, and there could be many, many more. And these are the ones that are post-able.

My plea today is this: if you can, prevent getting colon cancer. It’s one of the most preventable, beatable, and treatable diseases out there. If it runs in your family, keep an eye on your poo and your body. If you’re over 50, get a colonoscopy – just do it. If you see blood or anything suspicious in your stool, get it checked out. You may be 17, or you may be 60 — but my story shows that regardless of your age — it’s beatable, and especially if you catch it early. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Take it from me.
