March to Get Screened Founder - Jan Pratt

Getting screened saved my life. I was a non-smoking, normal weight 35 year old mom of 2 preschoolers when I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer (tumor size of 2 ping pong balls in my lower colon) proving that it is not just an old man thing. I went into my primary doctor’s office with a head cold that would not go away and mentioned that I was having digestion issues and that my father had died from colon cancer at age 53 and I wanted to get a colonoscopy. Best medical decision I ever made. I had surgery, radiation, and chemo and believed I was cancer free for two years, but it reoccurred in my lung. I had surgery and chemo for another 9 months. I wish I had had a colonoscopy sooner so I would have just had polyps that could have been removed during the procedure instead of it advancing to colon cancer. Get screened, it may save your life like it did mine!
