May 15 (Saturday) 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.: The Foundation is thrilled to be working with the California Department of Public Health Colon Cancer Control Program to bring the “Prevent Cancer’s SuperColon” to San Francisco for the first time. The exhibit raises awareness about the importance of early colon cancer detection and encourages visitors to get screened for the disease. It shows you healthy colon tissues, as well as polyps at various stages. Unlike many other cancers, colon cancer is “Preventable, Treatable and Beatable” with proper screening. The Prevent Cancer Super Colon will appear at the sixth annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration in San Francisco’s Civic Center on Larkin Street between the Asian Art Museum on Grove Street to Little Saigon at Ellis Street.
