GO BLUE: Colorectal Cancer Wear Blue Day
The month of March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. This Friday, March 3rd, 2023, please wear BLUE in support of a cure for colorectal cancer and to honor all who have been impacted by the disease. The Tribal Clinic would like all those participating to meet at the clinic at noon for a group picture.
Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in Wisconsin. Seven people find out they have colorectal cancer every day in Wisconsin. 90% of those diagnosed will be over the age of 50. Additionally, colorectal cancer is estimated to become the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the age group 20-49 by year 2030. Colorectal cancer has been increasing in those younger than 50 since the mid 1990s. Screening is a powerful tool to detect colorectal cancer early. Please contact Casey Denver at 715-349-8554 ext. 5139 with any questions related to preventative screenings or for additional information on reducing your risk of colorectal cancer.
