Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form of cancer among men
and women. If detected early, it is highly treatable.

Men and women aged 50-74, who have no family history of colon
cancer, should complete a Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) every 2
years. Please stop by our office to get your FOBT kit.

Clients with a family history (parents, siblings or children) of colon
cancer, should speak with their doctor about screening.
