Why support the fight against colon cancer?
and more people know they should do something about colon cancer, but screening
rates are still too low. Colon cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death in the
United States, claiming more than 50,000 American lives every year.
Not only is colon cancer
often beatable when detected and treated in its early stages, but it can be
prevented altogether when polyps are removed before they develop into cancer.
In short, this is a
cancer we can do something about.
But we can’t do it
alone. We need leaders and spokespeople to stand up for this cause and make
this cancer a priority for both policy-makers and the public.
As a spokesperson for
healthy-living and a leader in campaigns around the country, First Lady Michelle Obama is the
perfect person to champion this cause.
Help us get 5,000 people
to ask Michelle Obama to wear the blue star - the symbol of those we've lost to this disease and the shining hope for a future free of colon cancer - for National Colorectal Cancer Awareness
Month this March.
Please take 30 seconds and send her the letter below!
Or contact the First Lady via:
