9NEWS Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

9NEWS/NBC selected Colorado Colon & Rectal Specialists’ Dr. Lisa A. Perryman, FACS, FASCRS, to launch Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March 2017. It marked the return of the popular 9NEWS Buddy Check9, which highlights different types of cancer each month. March is colorectal cancer awareness month, and like breast cancer has its own special color—BLUE.

Dr. Perryman appeared on the Emmy Award-winning show Colorado & Company with 9NEWS host, Denise Plante. Colon Cancer Alliance, based in Washington, D.C., sponsored the segment below.

Dr. Perryman was also featured in this year’s colon cancer awareness public service announcement encouraging people to get screened for colon cancer. 9NEWS/NBC sent the television clips and PSA to 46 markets across America and released 1.5 million (yes, million) mobile apps throughout Colorado. The message was clear: get screened for colorectal cancer today!
