The wait is over! The Colon Club is happy to unveil the next group of thirteen remarkable colon/rectal cancer survivors. Set in the natural outdoors of the Lake George, NY area, this baby is one-of-a-kind. Models bravely reveal their surgical scars surrounded by rolling hills, blue skies and the natural outdoors. Each photo shows that there is beauty in cancer survival, even as unnatural or unusual as colon cancer before age 50 can be.
