|April Lunch and Learn Set for April 17: Colon Cancer
Cancers of the colon and rectum combined — or colorectal cancers — are the third most common site of new cancer cases, excluding skin cancers. The American Cancer Society estimates that 108,070 new cases of colon cancer and 40,740 new cases of rectal cancer occurred last year in the United States. The good news is that many colorectal cancer cases and deaths are considered preventable. For this reason, it is vital that you participate in recommended screenings. Colon cancer may be curable, if detected and treated early.
For more information, please plan to attend the FREE community Lunch and Learn on Colorectal Cancer on April 17. Lunch will be provided. Pre-registration for the program is required by April 10. Call Patricia Funderburk, RMC's community outreach manager, at 803-395-2698 to register.
