Meet Stephen

"I'm still singing my song."

Stephen didn’t have any symptoms when he went in for his colonoscopy, but he was over 50 and he knew that it was time to get one. Even then, it took quite some time to finally get an appointment, and he’s so glad that he persisted with doctor’s offices and got screened. The colonoscopy came back to show that he had colon cancer: not the results he was expecting.

Two weeks after his colonoscopy, Stephen was in surgery. Colon cancer is the most treatable form of cancer when caught early. Don’t put off getting tested if you’re over 50, have a family history of colorectal cancer, or are experiencing issues.

Follow in Stephen’s footsteps. Getting screened could save your life!
