to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
March is Colon Cancer Awareness month. As Mission Delivery Chair, I
want you to be aware of this cancer fact:
If you are 50 or older, you are at risk for colon cancer, even with
no symptoms or family history of the disease.
Please get tested for colon cancer and encourage others to do the same,
early detection could save your life! The grandmother of a fellow volunteer
was diagnosed with colon cancer at the young age of 35, the year was 1938.
She was one of the first to be treated with cobalt treatments at the Mayo
clinic. She watched what she ate and took care of herself and lived to
be over 94! Early detection screenings are saving lives nationwide. Get
your colonoscopy scheduled soon. If you have any family history, you may
want to consult your doctor about when you should have the test. There
is a colon cancer screening video, reminder and e-card available for you
to send to friends and family. Go to www.cancer.org under programs and
services to find out about this and many other invaluable resources.
