Colorectal Cancer

Preventable. Treatable. Beatable.

Each year nearly 137,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, often referred to as colon cancer, in the U.S. and over 50,000 people die from it annually. The disease, however, is largely preventable with regular screening and is treatable with early detection.

If you are over 50 or have a family history of colorectal cancer, talk to your doctor about getting screened today. Screening saves lives.

Colon Cancer Awareness PSA with Kathy Ireland “Staying Healthy for Family”

Kathy Ireland has partnered with ASGE on a new Public Service Announcement to encourage those 50 and over to undergo screening for colon cancer. “Everyone wants to stay healthy for their family and part of a healthy lifestyle if you are 50 or over includes getting screened for colon cancer,” said Kathy Ireland, Chair, CEO and Chief Designer for kathy ireland Worldwide®. “As a wife, mother of three and business owner, I know how hectic life can get, but I took time out of my busy schedule to get screened for colon cancer. I’m delighted to be partnering with ASGE to encourage colon cancer screening. If like me, you are 50 or over, or you have a family history of colon cancer, please talk with your doctor about getting screened; it could save your life.” Click here to watch the PSA
