Please Help us fight Colorectal Cancer!
Please help me raise awareness and support earlier testing for Colorectal Cancer!
My immediate family has lost 3 members over the past few years to this disease and we are very passionate about increasing awareness and fighting for earlier testing.
Heather's uncle Roy passed away in 2009 from colorectal cancer. My father Cliff in 2013 and three years after that my youngest brother John in 2016. The availability of early testing would likely have saved the life of one of these three and an increased awareness along with much earlier testing likely could have saved another.
Over the past decade Get Up There has been fund raising and working with other agencies to provide the mail home tests that can detect Colorectal Cancer. Increased awareness and higher rates of return of these tests has been a goal. In addition Get Up There has been working for ealier availability of Colonoscopies and the mail out tests.
This year Get Up There is working with the QE2 Foundation to provide equipment that will make testing easier and more accessable.
When my father was diagnosed with this cancer I was very affected. When my brother was denied a colonoscopy because he was too young and then later was diagnosed with the same disease I was very shocked.
Please support me in my desire to raise awareness and prrevent as many as possible from dying of this horrific disease. Get tested! Tell your friends! Tell your family. Insist on a test if you think you are at risk
