The Prevent Cancer Foundation’s website ScreeningSaves.org brings together organizations and individuals to raise awareness about colorectal cancer and to encourage those who are at risk to get screened. Here are the top five reasons why YOU should check out Screening Saves:
- Learn about colorectal cancer.
Over 143,000 people in the US are expected to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2012. Yet, it is preventable, treatable and beatable! Visit the site to learn about colorectal cancer prevention, risk factors and screening options.
- Send a Screen-A-Gram.
Remind your loved ones to get screened by sending a fun personalized screen-a-gram. It takes seconds to send but it could save a life.
