March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. I was diagnosed with cancer over 23 years ago, it would have been so comforting to have someone come beside me and share with me their journey. My doctor told me that if I would have only come to him when the symptoms first occurred, he could have removed the polyp and we would have avoided all the rest. If only there was a recall button. By sharing my story, I hope to bring further awareness to the importance of early testing and detection.
It's also my desire to help others in need especially in the ostomate community being an ostomate myself. I'm surely relieved to know if I was ever in a position to need the help of the Osto Group they would be there for me.
