Colorectal Cancer Screening Can Save Lives!

The Cancer Services Program of Ontario, Seneca and Yates is distributing free colorectal cancer screening kits. If you have no health insurance or have inadequate coverage, and are male or female between the ages of 50 and 64, you can get a free cancer screening kit by enrolling with your local Public Health Department. This easy-to-use colorectal cancer screening kit is done in the privacy of your own home and can help to show if there is hidden blood in your stool or bowel movement. This hidden blood could be a sign of colorectal cancer or other undiagnosed health problems. Colorectal cancer is found equally in both men and women – and often has no symptoms. Overall, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. And although colorectal cancer death rates have been reduced in recent years, the importance of yearly cancer screening continues to be the best and most effective means of reducing colorectal cancer rates.Please call your local Public Health Department to enroll in this screening program and receive your free kit.
