Help raise awareness about colorectal cancer (CRC) screening and save lives! Help us spread the message on CRC prevention and provide access to at-home screening tests that can detect it early. Testing saves lives, BUT(T)only if people get tested!
What To Know About Colon Cancer
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month
Colon cancer is also called colorectal cancer
CRC is one of the most preventable of all cancers BUT(T), 7/10 CRC patients don’t show symptoms. Regular screenings play a big role in prevention, especially if you do not show symptoms
CRC is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in the United States BECAUSE
1 in 3 Americans, even those with insurance,are NOT screened when recommended
CRC is not an senior white man’s disease. It affects:
Men and women
All age groups
CRC isa leading cancer killer of young men and women aged 20-49! **
African Americans are 20% more likely to get CRC and 40% more likely to die from it
REMEMBER! Screening starts at 45 yearsif you are at average risk (no symptoms or family history of CRC)
Turn This Knowledge Into Passion and Action!
CRC stops for nothing – not even a global pandemic like COVID-19 – and neither should we!
Multiple screening options are available, including at-home tests
We can have “The Talk”with friends, family, and co-workers before it’s too late.
We can create a new normal for CRC – have “The Talk” at a much younger age and Get Screened ON TIME.
