Your Colon Canít Wait: How Early Detection Can Save Your Life

Colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers, as long as you step up to be screened on schedule. Are you 50 or older? Is there a history of colon cancer in your family? The idea of a CRC screening makes many people nervous and itís easy to procrastinate. But early detection means a chance at a longer life. Over 90% of people diagnosed when colon cancer is found at the beginning stage survive more than five years.

Community Health Charities is partnering with the Colon Cancer Alliance on Tuesday, March 24 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT to present an informative webinar about colon cancer and why itís so important to get screened. Register for this webinar now to learn more about colon cancer and your screening options from experts in the field. You will also hear from patients who have already been screened, so you know exactly what to expect.


Cancer: You Can Make It Work

Woman with CancerIt's no surprise that cancer is the disease that employees fear most. Approximately 40 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime. And many employees who don't have cancer take care of someone else who does.

The good news is that more than one-third of all cancers are related to lifestyle factors that can be changed, including lack of exercise, poor diet and tobacco use. Early prevention and education also improve your chances of staying cancer-free. Whether you have cancer or want to learn more about your cancer risk, these resources can help you manage cancer in the workplace.

Liz Osterman is a young woman who does all of the normal things a young woman does, plus a lot more. Liz also checks her blood sugar at least four times a day, counts carbohydrates for everything she eats, closely monitors her exercise - and takes insulin to stay alive. Liz was six years old when she was diagnosed with type I (Juvenile) diabetes. Her parents, Blane and Kathie Osterman, knew nothing about diabetes and thought her symptoms - wetting the bed and being thirsty - probably meant she had a bladder infection. Instead, they learned she had a life-altering disease. They turned to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for information and peer support.
