On May 1, at its annual meeting in Los Angeles, the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons awarded Susie’s Cause founder and president David Rodman Cohan the David Jagelman Award for Advocacy in Colorectal Cancer. David accepted this prestigious award on behalf of the foundation that bears his daughter Susan’s name, honoring the dedication of all those who have worked unselfishly and tirelessly to achieve her vision.
If you had an extra $57 in your pocket, what would you do with it? For Jack Bohn, a second-grader in Baltimore, the answer was easy.
Susie’s Cause set out in 2016 with a far-sweeping, ambitious goal: to provide colon cancer education across the country in the underserved communities—in which colon cancer diagnoses and deaths occur at an alarmingly high rate—of 10 major cities. We wanted our visits to these communities to follow the model of our annual Baltimore Health Festival, which we put on for the first time in 2014: a free day of overall health education, with a particular focus on colon cancer screening and prevention, along with entertainment, fun, and food for the entire family.
Scientific studies suggest that an excellent diet can offer dramatic protection against common cancers, including colorectal cancer, writes board-certified family physician and bestselling author Dr. Joel Fuhrman in his latest article for the Susie’s Cause website.
