Wear Blue Today!!

March 4th

What is Dress in Blue Day?

The purpose of Dress in Blue Day is to promote awareness about colon cancer and encourage people to get their colon checked.

Why do we need to raise awareness of colon cancer?


•Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.

•Approximately 150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colon cancer each year.

•Colon cancer often has no symptoms at all until it's at an advanced stage.

•Colon cancer is 80% preventable when detected early.

•You can reduce your risk through regular screenings.

•Beginning at age 50 (or earlier if you have a family history), everyone should get their colon checked.

Learn how you can get involved and make a difference!

I went ahead and made this washer necklace to support the cause.
I would be happy to do a random drawing at the end of the week if there is enough comments and intrest in getting this as a prize.

Please support the cause and share this with those that matter to you!!

Have a great day and don't forget your blue!


  1. Very pretty! and for a good cause, too!

  2. That's really sweet, I'd never have guessed it was made from a washer! Thanks for letting us know about wear blue day.

  3. This is a great cause! My neighbor his this cancer and my grandfather has it, too. It's surprising how common a problem it is. I didn't know about "wear blue" day, but I'll definitely support it from now on. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  4. This is great to know about! I have marked my calendar for next year!
    Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie last week! I can't wait to see what you have for this week!
