Support Team Zaidy Harold and Kick Cancer in the Ass – Colon Cancer Canada

Support Team Zaidy Harold and Kick Cancer in the Ass – Colon Cancer Canada


Every year our family participates in the Push for Your Tush Walkathon to support Colon Cancer Canada. With the support of family and friends like you, we have raised over $36, 000 for this valuable fundraiser in the past several years. We do this each year to honor my wife’s dad who has always been affectionately known as Zaidy Harold. It’s a name fitting of any fabulous grandfather, but he was never able to meet his own grandchildren.

We all walk with Zaidy Harold’s picture proudly displayed on our T-shirts, knowing we are doing our part to help raise awareness and money for this disease.

Everyone can play a valuable part in preventing colorectal cancer by getting regular screening, by recommending it to others, and by contributing to the essential research and educational efforts of Colon Cancer Canada.

With your help, we can kick colon cancer in the ass! If you would like to support our Team Zaidy Harold in the Push for Your Tush Walkathon, please give here in any amount. My family and all who will benefit from Colon Cancer Canada’s educational and research efforts thank you in advance for your generous contribution.

Did You Know . . . ?

  • As many as 23,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC) in 2011.
  • CRC is the third most prevalent cancer in Canada and its second leading cause of cancer deaths.
  • This statistic is true for both men and women.
  • Over 9000 Canadians die annually from this highly treatable disease.
  • Although death from CRC is 95% preventable, nearly half of those diagnosed find out too late for treatment.

Colorectal Cancer by the Numbers:

  • 423 Canadians, on average are diagnosed with CRC every week.
  • 175 Canadians, on average, die of this disease every week.
  • One in 14 men is expected to develop CRC during his lifetime and one in 27 will die of it.
  • One in 15 women is expected to develop CRC during her lifetime and one in 31 will die of it.
  • Anyone 50 and up should be screened regardless of family history.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Blood in or on the stool (either bright red or very dark in colour)
  • A persistent change in normal bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation or both, for no apparent reason
  • Frequent or constant cramps if they last for more than a few days

Risk Factors include the following:
