Check out a wonderful survivor’s story as snow and the Prevent Cancer Super Colon™ came together this week to Portland, Oregon. The media had a busy day as they covered the nearly 500 people that turned out for the event, in spite of the weather. Sponsored by the Providence Cancer Center and The Oregon Clinic this fabulous day-long community event had tours, presentations, information, experts to answer questions, healthy snack samples and prize drawings.
The great on-site experts from both organizations not only offered tours of the exhibit, but spent time with individuals answering questions and sharing information about prevention and early detection. Healthy eating was also a headliner as a nutritionist talked about diet and provided healthy snacks. Presentations throughout the day gave attendees the opportunity to explore genetic factors, nutrition, screening and other topics in depth. The enthusiastic staff helped everyone who visited the Super Colon understand the message that colon cancer is Preventable, Treatable, Beatable!
