Push For Your Tush 2013

This year I am once again actively involved in fundraising with Colon Cancer Canada, and am asking for your support to help us keep up the fight against this horrible disease.

Colon Cancer Canada (www.coloncancercanada.ca) provides funding into three key areas:

  1. raising awareness for prevention and screening
  2. research
  3. providing support to patients and their families fighting colon cancer
We are making some progress on the disease, and there are many promising developments in research, but we still have much work to do. Read this post in my blog to see why it is so important that we raise funds and why I'm so passionate about it. http://mycancerouscolon.blogspot.ca/2011/09/cancer-funding-is-broken.html

Please consider supporting my team for this year's Push For Your Tush walk in Burlington ON on Saturday, June 8 by clicking the link below and making a donation.


Thanks so much.

  2. i once had a prolonged scare of this disease but thankfully it was just a scare (IBS has the same symptoms as colon cancer). i was in Canada then and remember spending the year end, Dec 31 in a hospital. Now that i am fully fit i have taken to drawing Art for patients with a view of lifting up their spirits -- http://niranjanshukla.wordpress.com/2013/06/29/art-call-for-topics-for-a-cause/

  3. Thanks for sharing your support by publishing the links. I wish you would continue blogging more now that you have survived your cancer scare. You were very inspirational.

  6. I read an article a few years ago that changed my life. The article was like this, it encouraged me to seek treatment for my colon cancer. At first I was scared, even ashamed, now I am well.

    1. Hi there. No, I am not blogging any longer. Happily, there is not anything left to tell of my story as I am four years from my surgery and still 'clean'. Thanks for reading.

    LOVE your blog! I was diagnosed with Stage 2 rectal cancer in April 2014. Our journey is similar. You have put into words how I feel much of the time. Nice to know I'm not alone. Wondering how you are doing now? I hope well. It is hard to laugh at cancer sometimes but I laughed out loud at some of your entries-nice-I really needed that.

  11. Hi Beth and thanks for reading. I am really glad if my blog helped you in any way. I had read lots of blogs during my treatment written by people 'in the thick of it' but I thought writing in hindsight might bring a different perspective, and ya, allow me to laugh at it. Certainly didn't feel too much like laughing at the time though.

    I am doing fine now. I am 4 1/2 years since my surgery and two subsequent colonoscopies have been normal. I have to live with a few things, mostly bathroom issues, but I sure can't complain. I worry a lot about it coming back, but that has diminished over time. And as long as I am doing the right things to stay healthy, well, that's all I can do. Sometimes though, I still shovel in a large order of french fries. I mean what the hell. What will be will be.

    So you're what, 7 months in to your treatment? What's going on with you?

    Fell free to write back here or directly to paulskiogorki @ gmail dot com.

  22. My partner was diagnosed with anal cancer and some complicated gastrointestinal tract infections Luckily he had an encounter with Dr Jose, a renowned Italian doctor that helped him overcome his cancer and other infections in less than two and a half months, just with the use of herbal medicine and spiritual help, i can now boldly say He is cancer free and a proud living testimony,Dr Jose is known to be able to tackle any type of cancer found in the human body, God forbids any one should suffer here on earth, thats why I believe he created all these herbs, if you also want to clear your doubts and fight cancer to the barest minimum, take the bull by the horn and avoid death, you can contact our Doctor, by his email joseherbals28@gmail.com

  23. My wife was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer the doctors said he got all the cancer out after removing about twelve inches of her colon. Thinking she was cancer free we went home very happy.It took the doctors months to figure out I didn't have gastritis, but stage 4 small colon cancer. she started having terrible pain in her abdomen, and vomiting but no blood in either. I had a general surgeon do surgery and it was supposed to be laparoscopic but ended up being exploratory. They had to remove a foot and a half of her small colon (doing a resection), her appendix, one ovary, and part of the large colon. was on Folfox for 3 months and then Folfirinox for 4 months to try and get ready for surgery and the HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy) procedure. I was just told I am not a good candidate for this surgery because the surgeon did not see enough response with the chemotherapy. Now my oncologist is putting me on Erbitux and a cancer cell blocker. I am nervous because of possible side effects,after a member of my church introdure me to a doctor,which i contacted as fast a possiblevia his gmail,he gave her some medications which she took as prescribed by the doctor,last two month she was diagnosed colon cancer free,its will be nice if you also contact him via his gmail willylocas50@gmail.com,am very sure he can be of help too.im really happy sharing my story with you
