March 2nd is Dress In Blue Day!

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. 

Did you know that colon cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer?   The good news is that screening tests, such as colonoscopies, can save 30,000 lives each year.  These tests not only detect colorectal cancer early, but can also prevent colorectal cancer.  When you turn 50 years old, or if you are younger and have a family or personal history of colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or breast, uterine or endometrial cancer, you need to talk to your health care provider about colorectal cancer screening tests.

This Friday March 2nd is Dress In Blue Day. 

Get involved to increase colon cancer awareness and help patients in need.  Wear blue and encourage everyone you know to talk with their doctor about colon cancer screening.  You never know who’s life you may help save.
