Easing the Effects of Colon Cancer Through Yoga, With Jean DiCarlo-Wagner

unnamedJean DiCarlo-Wagner faced Stage IIIC colon cancer in 2003, with her doctors giving her a 50/50 chance for five-year survival. Fortunately, her surgery and chemotherapy were successful, but her journey from diagnosis to recovery was challenging. After a 20-year career as an education resource specialist, her diagnosis and poor prognosis forced her to retire. However, she found a new career in teaching yoga for cancer survivors. Jean and her husband, Chris, have one grown daughter and are active hosts. They keep busy with an art studio built on their property and rescuing golden retrievers.

Riding His Motorcycle To Raise Awareness About FAP and Colon Cancer, With Todd Spurrier

Todd SpurrierTodd Spurrier has spent 19 months riding his Ducati motorcycle over 57, 000 miles all over America to raise awareness for FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) and Colorectal Cancer.

As he states on his website,

The mission of DESTINATION X RIDE (DXR) is to save lives by unleashing awareness on the masses about three related conditions impacting thousands of people, including me and my family: colorectal cancer, familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and desmoid tumors by broadcasting the message as widely and as loudly as possible that early screenings can prevent much more serious stages of these diseases.

Here are some of the organizations that have been important to Todd and his mission:
