Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

In partnership with Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center and Get Your Rear in Gear, Cancer Services hosted a survivorship event for colon cancer patients and their families.  This event featured healing arts, meditation, a delicious lunch and gave survivors the opportunity to network and share experiences.  To see pictures from the event, click here.

Also in March, be sure to register for the Get Your Rear in Gear Race (see below for details.) This event brings awareness to colon cancer, promotes early detection and celebrates colon cancer survivors.

A portion of the proceeds raised through Get Your Rear in Gear is donated to Cancer Services to help colon cancer patients going through their cancer journey.  For more information on Get Your Rear in Gear, please click here.
