"A more dedicated and energized support group you will not find."
"I am a colon cancer survivor of 5 years. I got involved with the Kickin' Cancer organization, and it is the best thing I have done for myself. They have taught me about the importance of eating healthy, exercising, and support to a better life to prevent cancer. In my case it is to prevent it from returning. They have all kinds of events for education, fun and fundraising to bring awareness to all cancers. The biggest thing I like is I have alternatives to chemo. I have learned so much about foods that can help to prevent cancer’s onset."
