It is day 23 of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection and removal of colorectal polyps prevents colorectal cancer. It's that easy. This disease is preventable! Talk to your doctor about screening.

I am so proud of my husband, Mark, and my dad who both had colonoscopies done today. Thankfully, their colons are healthy!

Colorectal cancer normally does not produce symptoms until the advanced stages. You can't know your colon is healthy without being screened. It is far better to be a little embarrassed than to die of colorectal cancer. Don't delay! Get screened!

Dad, post-colonoscopy, he survived!

Mark, pre-colonoscopy, wondering if he will survive!

In honor of Mark's healthy colon, I am posting a link to this video. Check it out!
