    March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month -

    Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the
    United States and a leading cause of death from cancer. Colorectal cancer affects all racial and
    ethnic groups and is most often found in people ages 50 and older.

    The best way to
    prevent colorectal cancer is to get screened regularly starting at age 50. There are often no signs
    or symptoms of colorectal cancer Ė thatís why itís so important to get screened.

    To
    increase awareness about the importance of colorectal cancer screening, The Town Planner
    is proudly participating in Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

    People over age 50
    have the highest risk of colorectal cancer. You may also be at higher risk if you are African
    American, smoke, or have a family history of colorectal cancer.

    Everyone can take
    these healthy steps to help prevent colorectal cancer:

    Get
    screened starting at age 50. Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke. Get
    active and eat healthy.
