Colon cancer is a horrible disease that touches thousands of people each year. Even with colon cancer rates on the decline in America due to increased screening rates, American Cancer Society estimates 136,830 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer this year.
And for each of those people, there are loved ones whose lives will be permanently affected by this diagnosis. Each person copes with this differently, but one thing many do is get a tattoo in honor of their loved ones battling colon cancer.
Whether you're considering honoring someone with colon cancer with a tattoo or -- like us -- you're touched by these gestures, check out some of our favorite colon cancer tattoos below.
