If you can help, please go to their website www.mealsfromtheheartland.com.
Did you know colon cancer is the 2nd leading cause in cancer deaths? One in 20 Iowans will be diagnosed with colon cancer in their lifetime. Iowans are dying from colon cancer at a higher rate than the national average...there is a 92% survival rate if diagnosed at early stages compared to 53% at advanced stages. Unfortunately only 40% of cases are diagnosed in the early stages. Colon Cancer causes no symptoms until advanced stages, so it's extremely important to get your colon cancer screenings! Men and women are affected equally. Please join us for the Colon Cancer Awareness Run & Walk, Saturday, March 25th. Get more information at DSMColonCancerRun.com. The run/walk will start and end at Iowa Digestive Disease Center, 1378 NW 124th Street in Clive. I will be there...I hope you will join me! All proceeds will go to local charities fighting colon cancer. For more information, call 515-226-8105.
