More than 1 in 3 Americans will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Getting screened is crucial to catching cancer early when it may be easier to treat. For many forms of cancer (breast, cervical, colorectal and prostate), the five-year survival rate is above 90% when detected early before it has the chance to spread.

If you get screened, you can prevent what I went through.

Dave, Colon and Prostate Cancer Survivor

Loving yourself means that you’re going to do the right thing to get screened to be around and to witness childbirth, a wedding, a high school graduation, and a college graduation of your children or a loved one. Getting the screening means that you’re doing the right thing.

Rick, Colon Cancer Survivor

If you don’t ask, then you don’t get the answer, but you have to get past the fear factor. So it’s one thing to be scared to hear something, but it’s another to die from not hearing something at all.
