March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month! In February 2000, President Clinton dedicated March as National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Since then, word has spread and awareness has grown to be a rallying point for the colon cancer community. Now thousands of patients, survivors, caregivers and advocates throughout the country join together to spread colon cancer awareness.
