DORR, MICHIGAN - To raise awareness in our community that colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer of men and women combined in the US, the Gun Lake Tribe's Health Department will host a Wellness Center Open House and Colon Tour featuring the Prevent Cancer Super Colon on Monday, August 8th from 1 to 6 pm.
The disease affects men and women of all races, but is preventable through screening and if detected early it can be successfully treated 90 percent of the time. The Prevent Cancer Foundation encourages cancer prevention through research, screening and early detection of all preventable cancers, including colorectal, breast, skin, cervical, lung, oral, prostate and testicular cancers.
The Tribe's newly-established library will also be open. Please attend for some valuable information, refreshments, raffle prizes, and the opportunity to meet our newest staff members!
The Health Department's activities are in partnership with the national Prevent Cancer Foundation Super Colon exhibit. Since 2005, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has crisscrossed the country with its Super Colon exhibit as part of a campaign that seeks to educate Americans that colorectal cancer is Preventable, Treatable and Beatable!
