In Memory of Jim Belleau
Blue Star Universal Symbol For Colorectal Cancer
In honor of my dad's upcoming birthday (May 28) and Father's Day, please help me in raising awareness and funding for Colon Cancer research!
Our family has personally experienced a great loss due to this horrible disease. We learned first hand why colon cancer is often called the "silent killer." My dad began not feeling well just after Thanksgiving 2009. His condition worsened and he went in for a colonoscopy on January 15, 2010. The tumor the doctors found was large and had already spread to his liver. He passed away on February 21, 2010, only 5 weeks after his diagnosis. Screening is crucial and we all need to be aware that sometimes there are no symptoms until it's too late. Awareness is the stepping stone in the fight against colon cancer.
I created this page because I want to make an impact in the fight against colorectal cancer. When you support me with a donation, you are not only honoring my dad, you are joining the global movement to end colorectal cancer forever!
The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) has been working since 2003 to fund screening progams for the uninsured, and provide much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.
This year their goal is to raise $1 Million dollars. $1 Million dollars will allow CCCF to greatly enhance and expand it's awareness programs focused on encouraging the public to Get the Facts, Talk to their Family and Doctor about their medical history and risk factors, and Get Screened! All in an effort to spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with prevention and screening.
Please consider joining our national movement by support our common goal of ending colorectal cancer forever with a tax-deductible donation or a page of your own.
You can make a donation online by clicking on the Donate button above my fundraising thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without colorectal cancer.
Thank you for your support and please share our story with your friends and family!
