S@5: March is Colorectal Cancer awareness month
Colorectal Cancer is now the 2nd leading cause of cancer related deaths in the US, and is forecasted to be the #1 cause within 7 years. People younger than 40 are being detected with Colorectal Cancer. It’s called a ‘silent cancer’ with little symptoms that many people simply ignore. Good News: There is a 91% survival rate – if detected early.
