Southampton Hospital Goes 'Blue' to Beat Colon Cancer

Join employees of Southampton Hospital in wearing the color blue on March 7 to raise awareness of national Dress in Blue Day and colon cancer.

From the hospital: "Though preventable, colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. for both men and women. This is a beatable cancer if detected early during routine screening. People over 50 years and those with a family history of colon cancer should be screened annually via colonoscopy. Talk to your doctor about your risk for colon cancer and tell a friend as well. To find a physician, call (631) 726-8362."
