Darryl Sittler on the Prevention of Colon Cancer
Colon cancer remains the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada. My late wife, Wendy, was committed to raising awareness about colon cancer. In 2001, she lost her courageous battle with this disease. As a spokesperson for Colon Cancer Canada for many years, I recently appeared in a media campaign to educate the public on the importance of early screening and detection. While there are screening options, the colonoscopy continues to be the gold standard test to prevent colorectal cancer. As such, this highly sophisticated type of testing can truly save lives.
