Cross-Check Your Colon
We made this team in honor of our friend and goalie, Char. We have all been there as a support team for him and his family during the diagnosis, treatment, and the waiting periods in between. Jackie, Char's wife, posted this on Facebook this morning and I don't think I could write anything better:
My husband Char was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer in February 2017–its been a year of questions, answers, more questions, radiation, chemo, tears, frustration, hope, and exhaustion. But it’s been amazing, too. The doctors at Duke Cancer Center and the support of family, friends, and colleagues has been amazing. I’m asking you, my amazing support group, to continue the fight against Colorectal Cancer by joining me in Duke Cancer Center’s 5th Annual CRUSH Colorectal Cancer 5k Run/Walk.
Liam and I will be walking on Saturday, March 24, 2018, and I’d love for you to join me. Or, if you have a few bucks to spare, consider donating to help fund research for a cure.
To acknowledge his love for hockey (and to raise awareness in getting a colonoscopy!), you’ll be joining team Cross-Check Your Colon. I look forward to seeing you on March 24 in Durham!
