We are looking for stories of hope and inspiration. Stories from all who have been touched by colon cancer.

You can share your story with us to be featured in Faces of Blue during Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Just answer a few questions below (our writers will draft a story from your responses), or you may compose the story yourself answering those questions and submit the text in the last field below.
