a message from the march founder
Colon cancer effects women and men equally and impacts all ages and races. I was a fit, non-smoking, 35 year old woman that survived it twice! Get screened if you are having any digestive issues or changes, such as blood in the stool. Colon cancer is 90% curable if detected early. A colonoscopy may save your life. It saved mine!
