CNN and the Associated Press have picked up a story about next year’s [Colondar](http://www.colonclub.org/colondar.html). They are featuring Chicago-area firefighter Steve DeLuca and his colon surgery scar.
DeLuca is the May pin-up for the [Colon Club's](http://www.colonclub.org/index.html) 2006 Colondar, featuring young colorectal cancer patients baring their scars for the camera. [Molly McMaster](http://www.colonclub.org/aboutus.html), who survived a colon cancer diagnosed when she was 23, and Hannah Vogler, whose cousin Amanda Roberts died of colorectal cancer when she was only 27, developed the Colondar to remind the public that, although colorectal cancer is most often found in people over 50, young people do get colorectal cancer and need to be aware of its symptoms.
The most exciting news about the news is the awareness the Colondar project brings to colorectal cancer. Trying to write this message, I got the following error: “403.9 Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected” That’s right, too many people were trying to access the [Colon Club website](http://www.colonclub.org/index.html) — perhaps for a peep at DeLuca, perhaps for more information about colorectal cancer and CRC screening.
