i was already in a cast when i set out to do 50 different workouts to embrace turning 50 in late march. but despite being in a cast, each time the doctor took it off and did an x-ray, there wasn't enough so this morning, after a third x-ray and receiving a third cast, i also received some firm doctor's orders for absolutely no weight on it. so, my quest to encourage you to stay active no matter what is coming to a temporary hold - per doctor's orders. i'll continue the series once i'm able to run, hop, jump, skip and pounce on my foot. calling all of you e due for a colonoscopy! put on your party hats. why these cocktails can save
million by 2030. one in four south carolinians suffer from some form of heart disease. talking on air about having a colonoscopy - not my first topic of choice. talking about a way to save your life - i'm all in. i've been invited to a party put on by consultants in gastroenterology and usc's center for colon cancer research. i'll be live tomorrow from a party like this one where we prep for wednesday morning colonoscopies. why? because i want to encourage you to get the screening that saves lives. and advocates like usc coach dawn staley know the importance after her mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. "i think early detection is great, but you don't get early detection without having competent doctors who will look after you like they would look after your parents like they are their parents." "i had two very good friends whose fathers died of colon cancer in their 60s. they weren't screened. they weren't screened early enough. and i knew we could do more." and you can do more for yourself, for your family, by being tested when it's time.
