Educate. Empower. Improve Survivorship.

Love Your Buns is a new non-profit initiative aiming to remove stigma and improve awareness around rectal cancer, its growing prevalence and its symptoms.  A growing epidemic in young adults, rectal cancer is easy to remove if caught early, however due to a variety of reasons, young adults are not likely to seek screening options like colonoscopies.  This gap in screening is leading to more advanced disease at diagnosis and more challenging and strenuous treatment.

We're working to Educate young adults to increase awareness of the signs and increasing prevalence of Rectal Cancer and to Empower informed decision making and Improve quality of life in Survivorship


LYB - Walk & Talk Support Group

LYB continues to host the “Walk & Talk” support group series for current patients, survivors, caregivers and families once per week in hopes of offering whatever we can in the way of “in my experience advice” and a place for anyone and everyone to vent.

Fall dates and times coming soon!

As always, we have chosen to make this a walking support group as opposed to a traditional counseling setting, to encourage improving one’s physical wellness, survival, and to capitalize on the benefits of increased mental health and the general wellness that walking provides.

All dates are to be held at Rustad Recreation Center unless otherwise indicated.
