March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month.  ‘Dress in Blue Day’ was first launched in 2009 by the Colon Cancer Alliance in a massive nationwide campaign to raise awareness of colon cancer. Colon cancer is always known as colorectal cancer. Anita Mitchell is the founder, diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer and lost a close friend and father to the disease

A blue star symbolizes both the memory of loved ones lost to colon cancer, those fighting with the colon and cancer for those future patients of colon cancer too.

Observed on the first Friday of March each year, the Dress in Blue Day program promotes awareness about colon cancer and encourages individuals to get their colon checked. Some businesses and schools will allow students and workers to wear blue on this day for a small fee, such as one dollar. Then the money raised would go to help colon cancer research.

I see a Gastroenterologist on a regular basis. I get both colonoscopy and endoscopy done every five years. After I reach a certain age. That is when, I will have yearly screenings instead. I do have digestive medical issues. I have since I was a teenager.

Wear Blue to raise awareness!

This year, 2017, Dress in Blue Day is March 3, 2017.
