However, to begin, I want to wish everyone, every single one of you, a joyous, happy, and healthy Easter. I don't care what your religious preference is, I want everyone to have a wonderful day today! If you are Christian and celebrate this sacred day, may you feel Jesus within you and have a blessed day.
Now for the main point...
It is the month of March. March is more than just the third month of the year, complete with Ides, St. Patty's and occasionally Easter, it is also Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. However, NO ONE seems to realize the impact that colorectal cancer has on people with inflammatory bowel disease. I've seen just about everyone talk/post/tweet about how age correlates with the disease, or even IBS (don't get me started), but not a peep (Easter pun?) on Crohn's and Colitis and their excruciatingly increased risks of such cancers. Having IBD can increase your risk of colon cancer by more than 5 times that of the normal population, but I guess no one is counting.
Why...why is that?
With that said, I have decided to do something about it, again.
I have designed some fun, comfy shirts, tees, tanks, etc. that are ultimate conversation starters, and all of the proceeds will go to benefit the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. With my goofy, sarcastic spirit, desire to bring awareness to IBD & ultimately find a cure, and with my love of graphic design, I made some great shirts that WILL start a conversation. They WILL bring awareness to what we suffer from, and in the end, help find a CURE with the funds raised. The more you wear, the more you share, the closer we get to ending this horrible illness.

Please consider sharing this post, as the more we raise, the faster we can say "I used to have IBD." Let's get the ball rolling, WE CAN DO THIS!
Love & Thanks,
P.S. Don't forget your colonoscopy! Early detection can save your life!
