March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

A few years ago, I got together with some crazy friends and promoted Colon Cancer Awareness.  Once again March is upon us and so is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Despite being highly curable, colon cancer still ranks #2 in all deaths due to cancer.

If you are male or female aged 50 or over, talk to you health professional about screening.  If you have a family history of the disease discuss this with you health professional. Colon Cancer is the number one curable form of cancer and can be prevented with early screening.

The American Cancer Society is also a great resource on the disease.
