Strong Arm Selfie’s for their dad
After their dad was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer, Carrie, Joy and Elsa Gibson decided to document his journey through Facebook as a way to keep friends and family informed. One day, one of their friends tagged them in a #StrongArmSelfie and the Gibson Effect was born.
I want to be the voice within my community by educating people on screening, creating awareness about colorectal cancer. I would love to be a voice for patients that do not have strength to fight. In the process I would like to remind all those in the fight that they are not alone.
I am passionate about the colorectal cancer cause, I believe more people should be informed about screening in order to prevent this disease. My sisters and I wanted to team up with Fight CRC to grow our community and have a larger voice within our community. Fight CRC stood by us while our father was in the process of his illness and I am grateful for them. Is time to give back, advocate, educate people and health professionals to eradicate this disease. I truly want to honor my dad’s memory and show my children that all situations can be transformed into something positive.
I want my father’s story to be shared far and wide, to help prevent others from this horrible disease. I hope that by sharing his story others will want to get screened and get informed about the dangers of colorectal cancer.
