july hero of the month: afap advocate daniel shockley


At the age of 51, Daniel Shockley received a life-changing diagnosis after having his first colonoscopy: he had Attenuated Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, or AFAP. As an advocate in Hawaii for the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) and Fight Colorectal Cancer organizations I requested the Hawaii Governor and Mayor of Honolulu to proclaim March – National Colorectal Cancer Awareness in Hawaii 2014. The Governor and Mayor honored this request marking the first time Hawaii has had such a proclamation.
