Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month


Prevent Cancer Foundation
Event URL: website
Date/Time: March 1-31, 2017

This year, over 142,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and an estimated 50,830 will die of the disease. If all men and women age 50 and older were screened regularly, 6 out of 10 deaths could be prevented. Several screening tests detect colorectal cancer early, when it can be more easily and successfully treated.
