My dad was diagnosed with colorectal cancer when he was 67 and died from it eight months later. He never got a colonoscopy. As a result, my brother, sister and I all get regular colonoscopies and have all had precancerous polyps removed. These screenings REALLY save lives!

Clatsop County has the second highest mortality rate with colorectal cancer in the state and that’s just one more reason I’m sharing my story. It’s so important that people talk about their experience because it makes people more at ease with the idea of a colonoscopy and encourages others to go in and get screened.
