Save Lives with Prevention Awareness

Colorectal cancer, or CRC, is the second deadliest cancer in the United States. Every March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month spotlights this disease and inspires more people to get checked starting at age 45. Two reasons why getting checked matters: 

  • Screening can find the warning signs of colon and rectal cancer, letting doctors take action to prevent the disease. 
  • Screening can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment is most effective. 

One in 24 people will be diagnosed with CRC in their lifetime, but you can make a difference today. Learn about ways to build awareness, how to get support, and more below. Tomorrow can’t wait!
