Colorectal Cancer Screening Stories | CDC

Joyce from Washington, DC says: "In 1992, my husband
and sister were diagnosed with colon cancer. They died
within four months of each other...I get a colonoscopy
regularly. I'm 71 and have had at least four of them. The
first two times, I had polyps which were painlessly
removed during the procedure. Do I enjoy the prep? No
way. But I see it as a small price to pay for enjoying the
rest of my life. The procedure itself has always been
painless, and afterwards I have gone out with friends to a
film or a walk, or gone back to work. I am passionate
about people getting a colonoscopy. I check with my
friends regularly to see if they are up-to-date on their
exams. I don't want to lose anyone else needlessly." Read
