New Campaign Focuses on Colon Cancer

By  | 

On Saturday, nurses and specialists from Luther Midelfort were at Oakwood Mall drawing attention to the topic of colon cancer.

Everyone over age 50 is supposed to get tested for the cancer, but only about half actually do.

That's one reason behind the American Cancer Society's move to air new ads about colon cancer awareness.

Local nurses from Luther Midelfort says the attention is important. Nurse Tammy Jackson says colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths.
