Summer Time, Family Time

For many of us, warm weather means we can get out with our families on a weekend trip or for a family reunion. That is the perfect chance to do a family health history run down!

We know you’ve heard it before. It’s important to know your family health history, and not just because of colorectal cancer. While you should be getting screened earlier and more often if you have a history, many other diseases can be prevented or treated better when caught early.

And it’s hard to remember when Uncle Joe got diagnosed when it’s not discussed or written down.

So we’ve created these great family health tree charts for you to fill out. It will only take a few minutes the next time everyone is together, and it will make it easier the next time you fill out forms at the doctor or need to discuss a specific concern.

Even better, we’ve also translated the health tree into Chinese! A Spanish translation will be available shortly.  We want to get the message out to as many people as possible, so please pass this along to anyone who can use it.

Colon Cancer Does Not Discriminate

Briel photo shoot webColon Cancer Does Not Discriminate


Early this year our new PSA debuted to raise awareness that early age onset colorectal cancer is a growing problem.

Briel Zagarow was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic colon cancer when she was 26. She is not alone. Colorectal cancer diagnoses have been going down for people over 50, but they’ve actually increased for people in their 20s and 30s. Many young people don’t know they can get the disease and don’t know the symptoms.

Please educate yourself and those you know about the risk factors and symptoms. Know that colorectal cancer does not discriminate based on age, sex, race or ethnicity. Please talk to your doctor about your risk factors and whether you need to get screened.
