Governor Ricketts to Proclaim March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

On Monday, March 5th at 11:00am, Governor Ricketts will proclaim March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month for the State of Nebraska! 

The Governor has supported Colon Cancer Awareness Month in the past, and in May 2016, he encouraged Nebraskans to get screened following his own colonoscopy. 

“Preventive screenings play a critical role in our overall health, quality of life and longevity,” said Governor Ricketts.  “I encourage individuals over 50 to get a colon cancer screening.  As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that’s why I encourage Nebraskans to fight colon cancer with screenings that help detect early cancers.”

If you plan to join us, please WEAR BLUE to support colorectal cancer awareness!
