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.
