TO TAKE ACTION
1. HAVE A CONVERSATION
It’s simple: Just ask your older family members if they have gotten a colonoscopy yet. If not, try to get them to do it for your sake. Even a little nudge can help. Plus, make sure you know your family history for colon cancer. Sometimes, it might surprise you.
4. CALL THE HELPLINE
The Alliance’s certified navigators are here for you. Whether you have questions about getting checked for colon cancer, or you or a loved one have already received a colorectal cancer diagnosis, you can ask a live person for assistance.
Some of the support options include:
- Getting or planning for a colonoscopy
- Financial assistance for screening or treatment
- Ongoing support for those who have been diagnosed
- Questions to ask your doctor
- Navigating or enrolling in insurance
