Take a walk through the giant inflatable colon, learn about colon cancer, meet and greet the colorectal physicians and walk with a purpose to “Stomp Out Colon Cancer.” Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States, and it also one of the most preventable diseases through early detection. The one-mile “Stomp Out Colon Cancer” walk aims to unite our community in the fight against this disease and to encourage regular screening.

Join us in spreading the word about the importance of regular screenings and show your solidarity with colon cancer survivors and family members while paying tribute to love ones affected by colon cancer.

“It is important to begin screenings for colon cancer at age 45,” said Methodist Mansfield Medical Center President Juan Fresquez. “Screening tests can find precancerous polyps that can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.”
