Wear blue on Friday, March 5, to promote awareness about colon cancer and encourage others to get screened. Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to spread the word.
Every year on the first Friday of March, Dress in Blue Day helps spread the word that colorectal cancer is 90 percent preventable when detected early. We encourage all individuals, communities and businesses to promote and participate in the upcoming Dress in Blue Day on March 5, 2010. By joining the conversation about colon cancer — the No. 2 cause of cancer death in the U.S. — you could save a life.
