Florida Senate Passes Proclamation Recognizing Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Today, the Senate passed our proclamation request recognizing March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. We want to thank Sen. Lori Berman for her continued support of our colorectal awareness efforts in Florida.

Dr. Gerardo Lanes, FGS Past President, with DigestiveCARE also played a vital role in helping Florida Legislature recognize the importance of Colorectal Cancer screenings.

If you are over 45 years old or have a family history of colorectal cancer please schedule a consultation with your gastroenterologist. Despite colorectal cancer being the 2nd leading cause of cancer, it can also have over a 90% survival rate if caught early. Don’t wait, get screened now.
