Is there junk in your trunk?

Colon Cancer Canada

Earlier this month, the Canadian Cancer Statistics 2012 were released by the Canadian Cancer Society and estimate that, on average, 64 Canadians will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer every day. One in 13 men and one in 16 women is expected to develop colorectal cancer in their lifetime. That means someone in your extended family is likely to get it. Improvements in screening and early detection have brought this number down in recent years, but it is still one of the four major cancers affecting our world every day. The only way to know if you’re at risk is to know the questions to ask, the tests to get, and to spread the word. Come out and support the Bum Run on August 26, 2012 to raise awareness about these statistics and encourage more Canadians to make sure there’s no junk in their trunk!
