Anal Cancer It's a Pain In The Butt.

I was diagnosed with anal cancer in 09, and this was a month after we lost the amazing Farrah Fawcett, it was so hard for me hearing they don't know much about this cancer, I want to change that


I want to start this conversation about cancers below the belt, specifically anal cancer, I was diagnosed in 09, the day I was diagnosed it was so strange I had just come from doctors had been seeing because I thought I had hemorrhoids, but sadly to say it was not,so on July 27, when I was diagnosed it was a kick in my gut, all I kept thinking was I'm gonna die and remembering we just lost the beautiful Farrah Fawcett to the same cancer,right away I wanted to lose the stigma and start speaking out about my experience, with hopes someone else does not have to go thru what we went through, it's all about awareness for me, and we truly need more attention to it, for it is on the rise.

How can you start something good?
