Cologuard is a noninvasive test for colon cancer screening that identifies altered DNA and/or blood in your stool, which is associated with the possibility of colon cancer or precancer. Approved by the FDA in August of 2014, Cologuard was developed by Exact Sciences, in collaboration with researchers at Mayo Clinic. In a study of 10,000 people of average risk for colon cancer, Cologuard found 92% of cancer. Cologuard does produce false-positive results. In the clinical study, 13% of people without cancer or precancer tested positive. Cologuard must be ordered by a physician, and any positive result should be discussed with your doctor and be followed by a diagnostic colonoscopy.

We lost Charlotte but we are blessed to have the beautiful music she created before departing this world. Charlotte's songs carry a message of optimism, spirituality, and love which she intended as inspiration to others struggling with cancer in themselves or those they love. All proceeds from the sale of the album are donated to Susie's Cause so we may reach more men and women to prevent colon cancer whenever possible. You can buy the CD here or download the digital files from iTunes or Google Play. Thank you Charlotte for sharing your vision, your talent, and your wonderful outlook with us. We feel very blessed to have had your light shine on our lives.
