Together, Let’s Dethrone Colon Cancer
BUT TOGETHER, WE CAN DETHRONE IT!
Let's shatter taboos and talk about early detection to defeat colon cancer.
Colorectal cancer has been the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in Quebec for years, with nearly 92% of cases occurring in those over 50 years old.

Now is the time to be proactive so that, together, we can dethrone colon cancer.
