Allyson Phelan-Eagan was diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer in February of 2012. After 8 months of chemotherapy, 2 months of radiation, 2 major surgeries, several outpatient procedures and a whole lot of pain she finally crushed cancer and began to immediately give back by producing interviews with doctors, survivors, caretakers, health professionals and more. She also began mentoring those newly diagnosed and speaking about her experience, the challenges and how to overcome cancer not only physically but also mentally and emotionally as well. Her main motivation to LIVE were her children, Sophia and Connor who we only 4 and 6 at the time. Allyson said nothing was going to stop her from raising them… including cancer.
Her #allaboutthatbassbootycampaign is designed to bring attention to the part of our body many people want to ignore. She states, “There is no need to feel embarrassed about getting a colonoscopy. We need to embrace our Booty and get checked. It can save your life.”
All of the models in Allyson’s, “BOOTY PATROL,” have been directly affected by this dreadful disease called cancer. It has taken the lives of some of our dearest loved ones.
