About the Initiative

The LOVE YOUR COLON initiative was created to help you learn more about colorectal cancer and the importance of screenings. By raising awareness, we hope to increase screenings around this sometimes embarrassing but significant disease. Love Your Colon believes that everyone— whether you are a health care provider, employer, payer or member of the community—plays an important part in increasing colorectal cancer screening awareness. Colorectal cancer ranks as the second leading cause of cancer death among men and women combined; however, it may be preventable and treatable if caught early through screening. Regardless of who you are, Love Your Colon offers information and resources to help spread the word on these potentially life-saving tests and procedures.
