6th Annual Walk-A-Thon

Will you help?
Please take some time to help a cause that we are passionate about. Did you know that colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in men and women, but is PREVENTABLE? If you get regular screenings you can catch the disease before it gets too late. Or too COSTLY. For the under-served community though, insurance costs and co-pays are too burdensome and people are not getting screened. 

Hope Through Grace makes it their mission to not only educate the community about the importance of getting baseline colonoscopies, but they help fund screenings for those who cannot afford it. They are saving lives! On March 26th I would like you to join me in participating in a most worthy cause, to eliminate colon cancer in our community. I have registered online for the 6th Annual Hope Through Grace Walk-A-Thon and I hope you will join me. My goal is to form a team of 10 walkers. It is a simple $25 fee to register and funds raised go towards helping Harris County residents receive baseline colonoscopies.      

We all know about Breast Cancer and other worthy causes, but colon cancer falls to wayside because - well, it's not something most people want to talk about. But the reality of the situation is that people are dying and that can be prevented.

If you do nothing else today, please just inform yourself on the risks of colon cancer and how you can screened.

If you are not able to attend on March 26th (you should because it's going to be fun!) please click on the link provided to make a donation. Any size contribution - large or small - helps the underserved members of our community receive colonoscopies that they cannot afford. We are helping to PREVENT COLON CANCER!
