The New Recruits – Introducing the 2011 Colondar

I have to say, while I am very partial to ’09, the 2011 Colondar gave our group some stiff competition.

The 2011 Colondar

Not only do the models have amazing stories, but the design on this bad boy is beautiful. Bright colors, cheerful smiles, and real personalities shine through on the Colon Club’s 2011 Colondar.

I’m especially fond of this group as I’ve had the opportunity to do some press for the Colon Club this year. It’s been awesome to put my PR hat on and try to help gain some exposure for this amazing project. My life wouldn’t be the same without the Colondar and the Colon Club. That’s why we keep working on these crazy projects and spreading the word.

Check it out yourself here.

Also remember- Colondars make great gifts for those in the medical community, cancer survivors, and especially gifts for those recently diagnosed with colon cancer.

Enjoy!

The Cycling Semicolons

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!

Show Todd some Support!

A Great Christmas Gift

Anyone wondering what to get their favorite gassy girl? Got a cool colon-less chico you’re shopping for this year? Might I recommend the 2010 Colondar.

For anyone who’s been impacted by colon cancer, GI issues, IBS, Chron’s, colon surgery, frequent colonoscopies, or ulcerative colis – this is the gift for them. The annual calendar tells the stories of at least 13 colon cancer survivors who are surviving the disease and spreading hope. I was honored to serve as Miss October 09, and while I tend to be partial to the 2009 gang, I have to say the 2010 group seems incredibly awesome. They’re a good looking bunch too.

Gift a gift with a cause this year to your favorite colon pal and support the Colon Club. You won’t regret it.
