My Birthday Was Yesterday & I’m 2 Years Cancer Free [VIDEO]

My birthday was yesterday.  And if you haven’t heard, March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. So in celebrating the year of my birth, I also wanted to celbrate living another year cancer free.  It was on June 25th, 2009 (the same day that Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died), that I had my Colon Cancer Surgery performed by Dr. Nadav Dujovny from the Ferguson Clinic. I was one of those people who would have NEVER had a colonoscopy.  I now know the fear was far greater than the actual procedure.  After a diagnosis of colon cancer you get pretty accustomed to having colonoscopies.  I never had any symptoms.  I have no family history.  And I was not of the recommended screening age of 50.  Dr. Dujovny had to remove a foot of my colon.  I was one of the lucky ones.  It was discovered purely by accident.  I went in for one thing.  He suggested the colonoscopy be done at the same time, since I would already be under anesthesia and I agreed.  Had he not suggested that or I declined I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this would have claimed my life.  Get over the fear, especially you ladies, and just “Do It.”  If you have children, a spouse or you just want to continue to live a full life.  Do It and Live Well!!!!  Here is the clip that ran on Fox 17 News with Michele DeSelms 2 years ago.  Here is some audio from today’s interview with Dr. Dujovny.
