The science is clear. If Americans received regular screenings for colon cancer, thousands of colon cancer deaths could be prevented each year. But, for too many Americans, the screenings either aren't covered by their health insurance or they can't afford the out-of-pocket costs.
Congress can change that. New legislation championed by ACS CAN will have a direct impact on reducing colon cancer deaths. It will lead to better prevention and early detection of colon cancer and improved access to treatment.
