Been screened? Your story can save a life.
Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form of cancer, but it doesn’t have to be. Screening can prevent the cancer or catch it early when it’s highly treatable.
If you’ve been screened, you already know this. But, here’s something you might not know…
Research shows 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 share your experience and encourage people you know to get screened. Consider sharing this information.
Your story can save a life.
I know of several people who have had colorectal cancer, two who had cancer found during a regular screening procedure. They are alive today because their cancer was found early.
