As part of the Siteman Cancer Center’s new colon cancer awareness campaign featuring St. Louis Cardinals player Matt Holliday and his mom who was recently diagnosed with the disease, we’ve just released the latest in the 8IGHT WAYS series: 8IGHT WAYS to Prevent Colon Cancer.
The “Cancer Doesn’t Take a Holliday” campaign tells the compelling story of Kathy Holliday’s diagnosis with cancer and the mother/son push to get the word out on the importance of colon cancer screening and prevention.
The new 8IGHT WAYS publication lays out the key steps for lowering the risk of the colon cancer. It hits all the well-known behaviors – like, exercise, diet, weight, and screening – plus a few less well known – like vitamin D, calcium, and alcohol.
Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States, yet it’s also one of the most preventable. Seventy-five percent of all cases could be avoided by things most people can do. The new 8IGHT WAYS is a great guide to taking healthy steps that can lower risk.
