March Colon Cancer Awareness Month- Dress in Blue Day this Friday.
Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer related death in NC. Colorectal cancer affects people in all racial and ethnic groups. Data indicates that 50 percent of colon cancers could be prevented through regular screening. It is important for individuals to talk with their doctors about getting screened starting at age 50.
National Dress in Blue Day is the colon cancer community’s day to unite for a future free of colon cancer! The NC Cancer Prevention and Control Branch/Comprehensive Cancer Control Program is excited to help the Colon Cancer Alliance lead the charge and provide you with all the resources and support the need to knock out colon cancer, honor a loved one and get people screened.
