Learn the Risks: Colon Cancer

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Summer is upon us.  Lots of partying, sunbathing, and enjoying time spent with families and friends.  The last thing we want to think about is watching what we eat.  Why should we?  After all, we have earned the right to have fun and celebrate.

Yet, lurking in our body could be a potentially deadly disease called colorectal cancer.  Many of us have never even heard of it let alone think that it could ever affect them.
