Are You at Risk? iPad Giveaway
March is colon cancer month. Find out your heredity risk for cancer and enter to win a new 16GB iPad with retina display!
It’s hard to believe that this time last year, Heather moved out and got her own apartment.
and this time next year, Allison will be wrapping up her senior year of high school and getting ready to pack up and move on to college.
Where does the time go?
Sometimes I feel like life is passing by SO quickly. Our empty nest is much closer than I want it to be!! So for now, I try and make sure I enjoy and capture as many of the memories that I can.
I also want to be sure I’m around to enjoy looking back on these moments with my family too! There are a few things we can do to make sure that we live long enough to be able to do so.
Some hereditary cancers, such as Colon Cancer, have certain risk factors associated with them, making it possible to actually prevent these cancers!
To find out if you are at a higher risk for Colon Cancer, simply take this super quick quiz:
Hereditary Risk for Colon Cancer Quiz
If you find out that you are at a higher risk, you can get a Colonoscopy which can rule out or catch a silent growing Cancer and save your life giving you more precious time with your family and loved ones.
In fact, there is also a genetic test that can determine if you carry any of the Colon Cancer related genes. Which you can then use the results of that test to map out a prevention plan for you with a Genetic Counselor. These cancers tend to run in families so be sure to encourage your family members and loved ones to be screened as well.
Life is full of surprises. Some surprises are wonderful and enriching. Other surprises…not so much.
Now it’s time to give ourselves a little of that preventive attention by finding out if you’ve got risk factors associated with certain hereditary cancers—such as Colon Cancer. It just takes a few minutes out of your life, that could give you a lifetime more of moments with your loved ones.
To encourage you to get checked and find out if you are at a higher risk for Colon Cancer by taking the quiz, I am partnering with Just Ask, Myriad Genetics and Today’s Momma to get the word out about preventing Colon Cancer. We would love to give one TidyMom Reader their very own newest iPad with retina display 16 GB (black or white) for capturing your favorite moments and sharing them with friends and family

Great reminder. Cool that you were able to partner with them to get the word out. So important to take cancer in general seriously. Hitting way too close to home these days. Seems everyone close to me has gone through it or is currently fighting some form. Scary.
I know! same here – I lost my dad to cancer 9 years ago, as well as a few other relatives. Hopefully some day they all can be prevented!!

Thank You so much, to you and the others, for getting the word out about how important it is to get a colonoscopy. My father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer this past October and I wish that he had gone to our doctor earlier for a checkup and for the colonoscopy test because early detection really is the best thing when it comes to any type of cancer.
I hear ya Kim! we have a family friend in the same position. He tells everyone to GO – go get tested!!
There have been far too many cancer deaths in my family to mention. Prevention is so important! Thanks for the post.
BTW, your two-story family photo is so cute!
I blogged about my recent scan. It took a whole day-but great piece-of-mind.
Thank you for the giveaway and please enter me. I did post on my facebook wall and twitter and I did take the quiz only through the google site. Lynch site link is still not working because of the address is missing an “e” in hereditary.
This is a great cause and thank you for the post to remind me to remind my friends!
can you show me where it’s not working? it’s all working for me.

Follow you on Facebook and “liked” Just Ask. I am not sure where the form is to leave the email address on FB?? I am leaving it here:) I am overdue for a screening. It is not a pleasant thing to do, but it is a MUST. Thank you.
Everything is done on the Facebook tab, I provided the link in the post https://www.facebook.com/TidyMomFanPage?v=app_107061516149542
