Speak Out Editorial - 3/12/15

It was a year ago that we lost our friend and colleague Mike Manhatton to colon cancer. In his honor this Saturday we're partnering with the Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion to put on the Get Your Rear in Gear 5K Run. 

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of colon cancer. Here are some things you should know: colon cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer when its caught early. The screening for it, which used to be pretty awful, isn't anymore; I just had it done and it was a lot like drinking some Alka Seltzer plus. 

So follow your doctor's advice and get screened; then lace up your shoes and get your rear in gear. 

What do you think?
