Colorectal Cancer: What You Need to Know
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, but it can be prevented and treated successfully.
Are you at risk? Screening for prevention and early detection is your greatest defense against this deadly disease, as well as proper diet, exercise, and knowing your family history.
Kim Ryan from C3: Colorectal Cancer Coalition will also discuss programs and services available for those diagnosed with the disease.
