Stop Colon Cancer Now is a site that is designed to not only create awareness, but to spur people into action and actually get screened. There is a ton of info on this site and also a very handy zip code look up option to find local centers where you can get screenings done.
You can also take a “Pledge” to educate yourself and others or even get screened. No one likes to talk about their nether regions when it comes to health issues, but this is super important so don’t ignore the signs and symptoms for yourself and others around you.
And you know I’m all about Giving Back, so one of the greatest things about this website is that for every pledge made, AmSurg will donate $1 to colon cancer prevention charities and you get a chance to win a TV. Giving back to charities and the general public — can’t get better than that!
