Been screened? Your story can save a life.
If you’ve been screened, you already know this. But, here’s something you might not know…
Research found that people are most likely to get screened if they’re encouraged by someone they know and trust.
A spouse or partner.
A friend or coworker.
Their employer or doctor.
So, please talk about your experience with people you know and encourage them to get screened too. Consider sharing this information in your conversations.
Your story can save a life.
At age 51, my doctor recommended that I get a colonoscopy. After being diagnosed with a colon cancer tumor at 53, I now get a colonoscopy every two years. Catching this cancer early can save your life and the rewards for getting screened are many.
