Today on WJON I was joined by Health Systems Manager Matt Flory from the American Cancer Society. Today is Minnesota Colon Cancer Awareness Day. Matt discussed the importance of early screening and the options available.
You can get a free colon cancer screening kit during this National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Anyone over 50 years old can get the free test from the drive-up window at CentraCare Pharmacy at St. Cloud Hospital or from Coborn Cancer Center.
I talked with Kim Orn and Matt Flory from the American Cancer Society today on WJON. March is Colon Cancer Awareness month and Matt and Kim talked about the importance of getting screened, what age people should be screened and the type of screening that you can choose.
