Cancer sucks. 
I was too young to remember when my dad was diagnosed with cancer, when the doctor told him he was terminal, or when his condition surprisingly improved and he went into remission. But I do remember going for quarterly checkups with him since I was a young child, to make sure we were on top of my own health. 
I was 17 years old when I was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, it was caught during one of my quarterly checkups, and they were able to remove the cancer before further damage and issues were caused. Those regular checkups saved my life. 
To my tribe and everyone who sees this post: Pay attention to your family history and get screened as often as your doctor recommends. Detecting early and preventing the progression of cancer can save your life one day. 
Today, I’m partnering with @HealthStoriesProject to raise awareness for a particularly aggressive type of cancer. Did you know that colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.? The worst part is, over 60% of those deaths could have been prevented with proper screening.
Colon and rectal cancer screening are becoming more convenient and accessible with at-home tests, but many people aren’t aware of their options. If you’re over 45, or your family has a history of colorectal cancer, make sure you talk to your doctor about being tested.
For those who have taken an at-home colorectal cancer test, please share about your screening choice to help raise awareness! Just go to the link in my bio to contribute to a potentially life-saving project.
