In May, 2001 my husband Fred passed away from colon cancer.

When discovered, it was already Stage 4 and had spread.

I promised him before he passed away that I would place a letter in the paper around his birthday on Oct. 12, to encourage people to get a Colonoscopy.

If you are 50 years of age or younger, if you have a family history of cancer, be checked. This could save your life as it is curable if caught early.

Praying for good health and God’s blessings
