What do Milton Berle, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Eartha Kitt, Audrey Hepburn, Vince Lombardi, Jack Lemmon, Sharon Osbourne, Ronald Reagan, Charles Schulz, Joel Siegel, Tony Snow, and Darryl Strawberry all have in common? Alive or not, they all have or had colon cancer. Those who passed away did so from the disease. A disease that is preventable.
March marks Colon Cancer Awareness Month, an often embarrassing topic, this talk of our colons, our rumps, and our innards. Hell, the first time I met with Michael Sapienza, the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation founder years ago, I was too shy to say the words “colon cancer” – it’s so not something we ever talk about. But (pun intended) you know what? The foundation has taken some clever tactics to make us less uncomfortable when addressing this deadly and again, preventable disease. Join them in the Love Your Butt Awareness Campaign which encourages people to open up and talk about their bottom. The Love Your Butt campaign was created for Chris4Life by DC based creative agency Hugo Creative. The campaign will run on TV, print, online, public transportation and radio across various markets and demographic areas across the country.
Ever wonder how many words are out there for the word butt? You Tube www.loveyourbutt.org
And be on the look out for the signs all over town and the television commercials … and LOVE YOUR BUTT!
