Get screened- Canon Rebel giveaway

Surprise Me!

Get Screened – Canon Rebel Giveaway

Life is full of surprises. Some surprises are wonderful and enriching. Other surprises…not so much. Finding out my sweet brother had colon cancer rocked my world and was one of those unhappy surprises  He is an amazing man and I can’t imagine him not being here.  I adore him! I am truly blessed to call this kind, loving, funny, smart and crazy talented man my brother! I am one lucky girl!

Thankfully, because of a colonoscopy his cancer was caught and removed and he is fine! (Actually more than fine he is awesome!)

My awesome brother!

Now it’s time to give ourselves a little of that preventive attention by finding out if you’ve got risk factors associated with certain hereditary cancers—Colon Cancer to be exact.

I know you’re busy, but Colon Cancer can be prevented! So take this quiz to find out if you’re at risk.

Knuckle down and get a colonoscopy if the occasion calls for it and try to spare yourself one unpleasant surprise. I am beyond thankful my brother took the time to get one!

Did you know there is even a genetic test to find out if you carry certain genes for hereditary colon cancer. Knowing this will help you map out your prevention plan specific to you. Remember to talk to your spouse and extended family and remind them to get screened as well!

Here’s the bottom line…we want you to get screened. So we wondered how to get that point across? We all spend time in front of so many “screens” (computer, iPad, phone) and it seemed logical to go BIG.

Win a Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
