Be Aware, Be Prepared & Get Screened for CRC.
To help you find out more about what you can do to prevent colorectal cancer and save a life, we are pleased to share the following resources and support organizations with you.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed. Screening also finds this cancer early, when treatment can be most effective. Colorectal cancer screening saves lives. If you’re 50 years old or older (45 if your African American), get screened!
Colon Cancer Alliance: The Colon Cancer Alliance’s mission is to knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers. They are doing this by championing prevention, funding cutting-edge research and providing the highest quality patient support services.
International Cancer Advocacy Network: ICAN is a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization providing direct patient navigation for Stage IV cancer cases throughout the United States and in more than 50 countries to date. ICAN is a global network consisting of a small staff and more than 1,100 volunteers, the leadership of which spans 17 time zones.
American Cancer Society: Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the US. The American Cancer Society estimates that 136,830 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 50,310 people will die this year from the disease.
Arizona Digestive Health: Preventive Screening. Colon cancer is one of the most curable and preventable forms of cancer. You can take charge of your health and dramatically reduce your risk by having regular screenings.
