Get out and get moving! Colon Cancer prevention begins with exercise: "Research shows that adults who increase their physical activity in intensity, duration or frequency can reduce their risk of developing colon cancer by 30 to 40 percent, compared to adults who are sedentary.

Colon Cancer is the second deadliest form of cancer in the U.S., yet it doesn't have to be. It's more than 90% preventable. In fact, it's one of the few cancers that is completely preventable by screening.

LivON Foundation: Colon Cancer Awareness

LivON works to help those 50 and younger battling Colon Cancer in Hampton Roads. Olivia Naples Bostic didn't let her diagnosis get her too down, but wanted to help others. Specifically, to teach others to "Know the Symptoms of Colon Cancer."

Olivia Naples Bostic remained positive during her diagnosis and treatment. Only allowing herself a little pity. She laughed a lot, cried a little, and never let us feel sorry for her. Life will throw you lemons, make lemonade. Thank you, Jesse Wareing, for this interview.

Colon cancer misdiagnosis in younger adults is a concern, study suggests

An excellent (quick) read on why YOU need to be your BEST ADVOCATE. Young Adult Colon Cancer Misdiagnosis happens because it seems like they are just that....YOUNG.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/30/health/colon-rectal-cancer-misdiagnosed-young-adults-study/index.html?fbclid=IwAR39O4qArk15_KjJ2jjm1owm8k-SxxAYHLaWIyoS8iOhiP_4uUYeD9NIFuM

While most colon and rectal cancer patients older than 50 are diagnosed in the early stages of disease, younger patients tend to be diagnosed at advanced stages, research suggests. Does this mean colorectal cancer initially is misdiagnosed in younger patients?

Our Story

The LivOn Foundation was created in honor of Olivia Naples Bostic. Olivia, at 37 years old and in the best physical shape of her life, was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Colon Cancer. This means the cancer spread to other organs, including her liver and ovaries. Olivia, a Physician Assistant for 10 years, noticed symptoms and changes in her body that appeared to be minor or easily explained, but were not. When the practitioner became the patient, she wanted to help educate others about the symptoms and prevention of Colon Cancer and help others deal with this diagnosis and treatment. Our mission is to educate and promote awareness for early detection of Colon Cancer for those under 50 years of age. In addition, we provide financial assistance to individuals 50 and younger in the Hampton Roads area diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Many individuals under age 50 go undiagnosed because symptoms are unnoticed, embarrassing to discuss, or are explained away for a person with no family history of Colon Cancer. Yet, Colon Cancer rates for those under 50 is on the rise; in fact 15% of all Colon Cancer patients are under 50. As a result, we at LivON Foundation are working to increase awareness of symptoms and hopeful prevention of Colon Cancer in those under 50. Know the Symptoms of Colon Cancer!

New RELAY FOR LIFE music video!
Hello my is Colleen. My Husband is Richard Rodenheiser He worked for Con Edison ( The Electric Company in NYC ) from May 1987 to August 2006. Let me start by saying Richard and I have been together for 27 years and married 22 of those years. We have been to hell and back. My Husband Richard was working on 9/11. He saw the towers fall from the East 16 St. yard In May 2016, He started to get sick. Severe Pulmonary issues. Asthma, Sleep Apnea, Chronic coughing fits. Doctors did 2 sleep studies and found Richard would stop breathing to many times to count. He was getting treatments and medications like mad crazy. He also needs to sleep with a CPAP machine all the time. Then August came around and he had some blood drawn and 2 days later, his doctor calls him at work and says get to the hospital now. They admitted him right away. His hemoglobin levels were at 6 points instead of the normal 13 to 15 points. He was possibly bleeding internally. The did an endoscopy down his throat and into his stomach, nothing was found. Then 2 days later a Colonoscopy was done. Almost 15 years later, he was been diagnosed with Stage 3C Colon Cancer. The Doctors said he has had it at least 10 years growing inside him. Colon Cancer does NOT run in his family on either side. We now are finding out that Colon Cancer is getting more and more attention with so many being diagnosed with it, from being on the pile and working around ground zero. After seeing an Oncologist at DePaul Hospital, he turned out to be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HYDE character. We went to Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philly. On Sept 21st 2016 Richard had his whole left side of his Colon removed along with a 14.2 cm by cm 12 cm tumor laying on his spleen and many blood-vessels. On Nov 10th 2016 Richard had a Chemo Port put in his Chest. He started his chemotherapy the same day as the chemo port installation. In Jan 2017, His tumor was genetically tested and after 12 weeks, we got the results, there was no genetic component, what so ever that caused his cancer it was due to toxic exposure at ground zero. We were also told that the tumors age was over 12 years old. The doctors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia is where Richard is getting all his treatment done. The doctors said that this type of cancer has not been seen since, we dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But now it is being seen in to many first responders and workers that were at ground zero, since 9/11. As of today, May 24th 2017 Richards treatment consists of 1 chemo infusion that lasts 4 hours, then the following day he starts taking chemotherapy pills for 14 days. He gets a 1 week break and we repeat the cycle all-over again. He has had 7 chemo infusions so far and too many Chemo pills to count. We travel back on May 30th for his 8th inusion. We travel from Norfolk, Virginia to Philadelphia every 21 days. Richard was approved for the World Trade Center Logistics Health Program. We have applied for Social Security Disability and were denied. Now we have lawyers working on that. We are part of the Victims Compensation Fund Lawsuits, but may not see anything for a long time. He is NOT allowed to work anymore. The Chemo is wrecking his immune system and the Neuropathy affects his hand, arms, leg and feet. He is constantly in pain. He is depressed, angry and pi**ed off. The reason for my long post is this, we need help. Ours daughters and son in law are helping, but it is not enough. My sister started a go fund me page for us and it seems like it is at a stand still. I am posting it here, hoping that anyone can help at all. Every little bit counts. Thank you so much for listening Sincerely, Colleen Rodenheiser
