Fashion Forward - Get Screened!
During Colon Cancer
Awareness Month, the makers of Dulcolax® products, a trusted source of relief from constipation and intestinal irregularity, and the CCA have teamed up with American
fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo to show Americans that it’s “fashionable”
to get screened. A colon cancer survivor, Carmen is committed to raising awareness about the disease and the importance for
all men and women 50+ to get screened. In addition, Carmen is donating
proceeds from his new book, Dressed to
Perfection: The Art of Dressing for Your Red Carpet Moments, to support
colon cancer research. Click here to read
the press release.
What does a family history of polyps, rectal cancer, or colon cancer mean for you or your loved ones? Our new 30 second animated PSA “Screen My Colon!” focuses on why it is important for you to know your family’s health history.
Is Your State Making the Grade?
The 2011 Colorectal Cancer Legislative Report Card has been released and the news is not good. While we applaud the efforts of Hawaii, which passed new legislation in 2010 mandating insurance coverage for lifesaving colorectal cancer screenings; only two states have improved their grade in the past two years– the slowest progress we have seen. At a time when we know how important colorectal cancer screenings are to saving lives, 17 states still receive failing grades this year.
