Colon Club Friends

Todd is loved by us all!

As many of you know, I’m involved in a community of colon cancer survivors through The Colon Club. This amazing organization has plugged me into a group of people who’ve also battled the disease under the traditional age of 50 years old. I had the unique opportunity to model for their 2009 calendar, and in the process met some amazing friends. Each one of them has a story that is so inspiring, and everyone is making strides in their own way to carry on the mission of preventing and beating this disease! One of the huge  inspirations is Mr. November, Todd Colitti.

The Cycling Semicolons

Todd is cycling across the country right now in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the Colon Club and Get your Guts in Gear. What’s so inspirational is that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer 10 years ago and often referred to as “The Miracle Man.” He’s peddling from the Atlantic to the Pacific , and not letting anything stop him.

His team, “The Cycling Semicolons,” (see the common theme?) is in Texas right now about about half way through. He told a reporter, “he has lost eight pounds, and is “saddle sore” some days. He has gotten three flat tires on his bicycle, but otherwise said he has plenty of energy to finish.” He hopes to make it to the Atlantic Ocean by May 14.

Today’s post goes out to support Todd and his journey. Thanks for helping spread the word, friend! All of us with semicolons, colon cancer, ulcerative colitis, ostomies or just GI-stuff appreciate it! I know you can make it!
