Colorectal Cancer Awareness
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, but it doesn't have to be. If everybody age 50 or older had regular screening tests, 60 percent of deaths from this cancer could be avoided. We encourage you to join the fight against cancer and use the following materials in your organization and community to increase awareness and the importance of prevention of this disease. Together we can make a difference!
Dress in Blue Day is March 3, 2017. Blue is the color of colorectal cancer awareness and people are encouraged to wear blue to raise awareness. Dress in Blue is also a fundraising organization. If you would like more information or resources please visit the Colon Cancer Alliance Dress in Blue Day website here.
The North Dakota Colorectal Cancer Round Table has developed materials to Turn North Dakota Blue for the whole month of March. This is meant to increase awareness and generate conversations about colorectal cancer and screening!
