Guest Post: Celebrating My Father this Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

One year ago today, I lost my father, the venerated Congressman Donald M. Payne, Sr, to colon cancer. To many, he is remembered as a dedicated public servant who proudly represented the people of New Jersey’s Tenth Congressional District for nearly a quarter-century, working on the Committee on Education and the Workforce and the Committee on Foreign Affairs to create educational opportunities both in his district and worldwide, as well as working diligently to create jobs and develop workforce training programs.
