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
