Take the Pledge

Posted By Tracelyn Sutton, American Cancer Society, Friday, March 2, 2018

It’s March and that means a lot more than bracket busters and the final four. It’s Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!!  It’s true; it doesn’t sound as exciting… But oh man, is it!  Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the US. This month signifies the leaps and bounds we have made in the fight against colorectal cancer. We have a long way to go in Arizona in order to reach our 80 percent screening goal: we need 640,000 people to get screened.   Go online and take the pledge by clicking here. 

As a business leader, we are asking you to Pledge to Screen and share this information with your colleagues, family, friends and community. 

Regular screening tests can help prevent some colorectal cancers before they start or find them early when they are small and treatment is more likely to be successful.

 

Important Facts to Know

  • There are several screening options available, including simple take home options. Talk to your doctor about getting screened.
  • Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, when men and women are combined, yet it can be prevented or detected at an early stage.
  • Preventing colon cancer, or finding it early, doesn’t have to be expensive. There are simple, affordable tests available. Pledge to get screened! Call your doctor today.
  • If you are over 50 or have a family history colorectal cancer, talk to your doctor about what option is best for you and get screened.

For more information go to www.cancer.org or call Adrienne Barker at 520-357-1457
