March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Wright: Be aware; colon cancer is a sneaky killer - Opinion Extra -
David Wright
"Colon cancer can be prevented. And, it can be treated successfully, too --if detected early!
The problem is that, even with insurance, many people choose not to be screened, or they try to put it off - like I tried to do.
Not a good idea.
Others may not be able to be screened because they don't have insurance, or they are underinsured, or their insurance policy doesn't provide for screening.
That's not good either, because not having colon cancer screening available and affordable makes people have to play Russian roulette with their lives.
So, what can be done to help?
Well, one step is to make colon cancer awareness a top priority.
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Take a moment right now to think about yourself and your family.
Does your family tree have a history of colon cancer?
Is there a history of any type of cancer in your family tree?"
