This year, an estimated 136,830 people in the United States will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and on average, the lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is about 1 in 20. In February 2000, President Bill Clinton officially declared March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Since then it has become a rallying point for all impacted by this diagnosis to join together to spread awareness, community and hope. On this episode of Frankly Speaking About Cancer we are going to take an in-depth look at this diagnosis in recognition of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month this month.
