Riverwood, CRMC report on colon cancer awareness

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. among men and women combined. More than 140,000 women and men are diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year, but it is a disease that is preventable and curable when detected and treated early. Unfortunately, colorectal cancer often is a silent disease, beginning with no symptoms at all.

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center and Riverwood Healthcare Center both utilized direct mail, newspaper, radio, websites, community events, Facebook and other communication channels to inform individuals of why and when they should be screened for this disease.
