Buddy Bracelet

Foundation Reminds Individuals to Get Screened for Colorectal Cancer

The Prevent Cancer Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and early detection of cancer, is distributing Buddy Bracelets™ across the nation in hopes of saving thousands of lives from colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States.

For information on ordering Buddy Bracelets, please visit http://preventcancer.org/what-we-do/education/education-materials/ or contact Rebecca Evans at rebecca.evans@preventcancer.org.

The Buddy Bracelet was created to spread the word about colorectal cancer screening during National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Founded by the Prevent Cancer Foundation, the awareness month is a collaborative effort to increase awareness that colorectal cancer is largely preventable, treatable and beatable through regular screenings, a healthy lifestyle and expert clinical care.

Wear the Buddy Bracelet with pride, then get screened for colorectal cancer and pass the bracelet on to a family member, friend or colleague. YOU can create a chain reaction that could save thousands of lives.

Colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable, and beatable. So, get screened today.
