Dress in blue to raise awareness of colorectal cancer on Friday, March 6, 2009. Talk to your friends about colon cancer, reminding them to be screened and learn about the symptoms of colon and rectal cancer.
Colon cancer survivor Anita Mitchell organized the first Dress in Blue Day in her children’s school. The children, who normally wore uniforms to class, were allowed to wear blue clothes if they donated a dollar to cancer research. The next year she expanded the project, dedicating Dress in Blue to her friend Carmen Mitchell who died of the disease.
