Did You Know....

...that colon cancer is the third most common form of cancer in both men and women

...that regular colorectal screening can detect and remove pre-cancerous polyps BEFORE they turn into cancer

...22 million people each year are not up to date on their screening at age 30 I have now had two colorectal screenings/colonoscopy's (one of which has removed pre-cancerous polyps)

...if you are over the age of 50 and have not had one, please talk to your doctor

...that while it does not have the most pleasant 'prep' for the procedure this will SAVE some peoples  LIFE

...I have too much left to live for to not do it, do you?
