Now that you’re 50 years young like Harry Connick, Jr., join him and Jill and take the #ScreenWithMe Challenge and talk to your healthcare provider about screening for colon cancer. Then encourage your loved ones over 50 to do the same.
When caught early, colon cancer is almost 90% treatable.*
Cologuard is a modern noninvasive screening option.
If you are like many people, you may feel anxious about getting an invasive procedure like a colonoscopy that requires unpleasant prep and time off of work.
Luckily, times have changed. Now there’s Cologuard, an easy, noninvasive test you can use at home.
Cologuard is indicated to screen adults of either sex, 50 years or older, who are at typical average-risk for colorectal cancer. Cologuard is not for everyone; not for high risk individuals, including those with a family history of colorectal cancer, a personal history of colorectal cancer or advanced adenoma, IBD and certain hereditary syndromes.
For Harry Connick, Jr. and his wife, Jill, cancer awareness hits close to home.
In 2012, Jill was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately, the cancer was detected early through a routine screening, and now the couple is celebrating the 5-year mark of her remission.
Because of their deeply personal experience, Harry and Jill have made cancer screening awareness their mission.
