Mangano Commemorates Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

MANGANO COMMEMORATES COLORECTAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and County Legislator Rose Marie Walker joined with Janet Shehata, Administrative Director for Cancer Services at Winthrop University Hospital, and Dr. Eva Chalas, Physician Director of Cancer Services at Winthrop, to illuminate in blue the dome of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola, in honor of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, on Wednesday, March 1st.

County Executive Mangano stated, “Colon cancer is a deadly disease that affects both men and women, yet is both treatable and beatable when caught early through screening. We commemorate Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and our goal is to promote awareness and remind residents to speak with their doctors about when it would appropriate for them to get tested.”

According to the American Cancer Society in the year 2017 alone over 136,000 cases of colorectal cancer will be diagnosed, and in the United States over 50,000 people are expected to die from colorectal cancer. County Executive Mangano, has always made health and fitness a priority under his administration, and strongly supports the American Cancer Society’s message that preventing colorectal cancer should be a major reason for getting tested. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. Living a healthy lifestyle can help reduce your risk of colorectal cancer, but regular tests and exams can often find colon cancer early, when it is most treatable, or sometimes even prevent it altogether.

For more information on Colorectal Cancer Awareness and Prevention please visit the American Cancer Society website at www.cancer.org/colon.
