Support Colorectal Cancer Research
Posted on March 05 2012
One would be hard pressed to find a person that didn't know about the prevalence of breast cancer and the fundraising for research, but what about support for colorectal cancer? In the US, colorectal cancer has been identified as the second leading cause of cancer related deaths but has little for publicity and research dollars. This March, consider supporting the Royal Blue in honor of colorectal cancer research.
Each year 150 thousand people in the US alone are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and this disease results in 50 thousand deaths annually. Statistics indicate an equal split between men and women afflicted with colorectal cancer. With the prevalence of this condition and the mortality rate, many are calling for more support for colorectal cancer research.
The most important step toward reducing the mortality rate from colorectal cancer is screening. There are a variety of Fecal Occult Blood Tests available commercially, even for home use, that can help identify potential risks within minutes. Items like the EZ Detect Home FOBT can provide accurate results in less than 2 minutes.
This March, we encourage everyone to help raise awareness as we honor colorectal cancer awareness month. Please encourage screenings, testing, and displaying Royal Blue in honor of research, treatment, and prevention.
