Be Gutsy! For Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

#BeGutsy! Protect your health. Get screened for colorectal cancer.

Colorectal cancer is the second-largest cancer killer among cancers that affect both men and women. The good news is that it can be prevented, as long as you get screened as recommended. Healthy choices can help lower your risk, too. All month, DCPC will be giving you information to help you Be Gutsy and lower your cancer risk!
  • Check out all new Screen for Life Campaign materials, including animated public service announcements, updated fact sheets and brochures, and a quiz to test your knowledge about colorectal cancer.
  • Find out just how preventable colorectal cancer can be with a new blog post, and stay tuned for more entries as the month goes on.
  • Follow DCPC’s Twitter account, @CDC_Cancer, for brand new images and information about prevention, and to find out what CDC is doing to help raise the rates of colorectal cancer screenings around the nation.
And don’t forget to drop in to DCPC’s website for updates through March. Colorectal cancer screening saves lives; whether you’re 50 to 75 years old—the age range for regular screening—or have a medical history that might make earlier screening a good idea, it’s easy to learn what you can do to help stay colorectal cancer-free.
