Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors and volunteers for helping to make the 14th Annual Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation Walk, Run, & Ride a great success! You are helping bring us one step closer to saving lives by allowing us to promote prevention and early detection of this devastating disease.
Colorectal cancer is a preventable disease! Please remember to get screened by the age of 50 if you are of average risk and earlier if you have a family history of colon cancer or polyps. Don’t ignore any signs or symptoms you may be experiencing, including blood in your stool, change in bowel function, abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, or anemia. Colon cancer is still a very treatable disease, especially when it is caught early.
