The blue colored ribbon on this tree shows awareness for Colon cancer. Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death. An estimate of close to 137,000 people are diagnosed per year. The colon is located at the lower end of the digestive tract. Symptoms include abdominal pain, change in bowel habbits, changes in stool consistancy, blood in the stool, weakness, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, iron deficiency, among a few others. It is recommended for men and women ages 50-75 to regularly have a screening done every year.
Every year Faline creates a tree to support a charity/organization of her choice. In this way, she helps to share awareness of the horrible issues that many of us have to face in today’s world.
