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 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.

I got screened at age 65 as part of an annual check-up. During the colonoscopy they found one polyp and removed it. The tests showed that it was benign. I go back for a follow-up in ten years. In the meantime, I’m trying to get more fiber in my diet, and I’m encouraging others to see their doctors and get screened too. It’s painless, it’s easy to do, and it can help with the early diagnosis and prevention of cancer. You’ll be glad you did it–for yourself and your family.
