Life with a Semi-Colon ;)
In my family, when you start approaching adolescence, you are taken to have your blood drawn and it is sent away to be tested; then you wait for the results.  What you are waiting to know is if you test positive for a gene mutation know as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).  Testing positive means that, it’s not if you will get colon cancer but a matter of when.  Most people who test positive have the majority of their colon preemptively removed in adolescence and then spend the rest of their lives being periodically screened for growths throughout the rest of their digestive tract.  Like my mother, aunt, and three of my cousins, I tested positive for FAP.  Now that I am watching my cousins children go throw the diagnostic process, I realized how important it is to do what we can to help future generations with this disease.  The Colon Cancer Alliance raises money to fund research and awareness for colorectal cancer through Undy Runs/Walks.  Next Saturday, August 20th, I’ll be walking in the Tacoma Undy Run/Walk with some friends.  We would very much like your support and/or company.
