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.
My mother died of colorectal cancer when she was only 60 years old. She was my best friend. And she was taken too early from me and my family. Now, my siblings and I get screened regularly to prevent the cancer. I don’t want my kids to lose their mom like I lost mine.
