March 3th is National Wear Blue Day for Colon Cancer Awareness!

Annually on the first Friday of March, the entire colon cancer community nationwide unites around the color BLUE! Similar to breast cancer’s pink ribbon, the nationally-recognized blue star represents the eternal memory of the people whose lives have been lost to the disease and the shining hope for a future free of colon cancer. Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death. But it doesn’t have to be this way; through screening, it is one of the most preventable diseases. By our community rising up to knock out colon cancer – we can make a huge impact! Visit for all the exciting updates!
