            • Get Your Rear in Gear


              from Lee Memorial Health System Added 43 0 0

              Colorectal cancer surgeon Janette Gaw hopes people will get behind her cause. “It’s called Get Your Rear in Gear. It is a national run.” On March 24th, Southwest Florida hosts a 5K run to benefit colorectal cancer, a disease that’s largely curable if caught. “The good news about colonoscopies is that it can actually prevent cancers. If you have a colonoscopy you take out the polyps, technically you should not develop colon cancer,” says Dr. Gaw. In this day and age, not everyone has insurance or can afford to pay for a colonoscopy. That’s why some of the proceeds from this race go towards leveling the playing field. “There’s a lot of people out there that need this kind of help,” says John Cook., John being one of them. In 2007 he was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer. He is supposed to get annual colonoscopies now but money is tight. “Blood tests is all I was really getting because I didn’t have insurance and I couldn’t afford to get scans,” says Cook. A nurse suggested he seek a grant from the Get Your Rear in Gear proceeds. “It had been two years since I had one and she said I’ll send you these forms you can apply for it,” says Cook. John got the grant, underwent the colonoscopy, and got the all clear he was hoping for. “The follow up is important because you want to know.” He takes nothing in stride but later this month runners will as they take race to help others get a leg up.

                      While making Surviving Colon Cancer, I discovered that many survivors and patients struggling to survive were well under 50, the official screening age. Typically they were diagnosed in Stage 3 which meant surgery, chemo, and radiation. Two young women were diagnosed at 38 and 43. One’s doctor ignored her symptoms. The other was luckier, and her cancer was discovered when a blood test revealed she had anemia. The first is now in Stage 4, and the second has become a runner and has been cancer free for five years. Colorectal cancer is the most misdiagnosed cancer for younger patients because doctors often do not equate their symptoms with their ages. Patients also do not always listen to their bodies and think oh, It’s just hemorrhoids. Meanwhile the incidence of cancer to those who are 40+ has risen 11%. Colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer for both men and women and the deadliest for non-smokers. It also is the only cancer that can be prevented by screening. For those with family histories, they may need to be screened in their 20’s or 10 years prior to a family member’s diagnosis.
