How's Your Colon?
I'm kind of excited that Katie Couric is leaving NBC to be the new anchor for the CBS Evening News.
I know that she's really famous and has been in the news a lot this week. But the main reason I like her is her ongoing crusade against colon cancer, which claimed the life of her husband in his early 40s.
This is a great article about her and all of the money and awareness she's raised for her cause.
My grandfather died of colon cancer. So every year, I run the Colon Cancer Challenge (4 mile race).
And my parents have been very good about watching their diets and getting colonoscopies.
My sister and I have plans to do the same before we reach our 50th birthdays. Colon cancer is largely curable, if caught early through screening.
On that note, I'm going to go and have a salad, with some bran sprinkled on top. #
