I just completed my follow up colonoscopy and I hope you are current with yours.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month in 2015 and there are many important aspects about colon cancer that make it important for us to raise awareness on this topic.

First.  Colon cancer is very common.  In the US this year alone over 140,000 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer and about 50,000 people will die from it!  It is the second leading cause of cancer death in America.  Lung cancer is number one.

Let me repeat that.  In the United States of America, in the year 2015, over 140,000 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer and about 50,000 patients will die from this disease.

These numbers are huge!  Colon cancer is a serious health problem in America and has a tremendous impact on us both financially and emotionally.
