Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. A colonoscopy can prevent colon cancer by removing and detecting pre-cancerous polyps. Join us on Sunday, March 5th for the 8th Annual March to Get Screened where all proceeds support the BGC Foundation for research and education for colon cancer.
