Go BLUE today to spread awareness of colon cancer. Let everyone know why you're wearing blue, and most importantly, tell your loved ones age 50 and up to get screened.
"When I was growing up, no one spoke about breast cancer. That was a taboo subject. Now we're so much more open about breast cancer screening and discussing. I feel as though colon cancer is where breast cancer was 40 years ago. So, we have to start the conversation and dialogue. Everyone in Kentucky should be talking about it and making sure that anyone we know age 50 and up is getting screened. Colon cancer is a very treatable cancer if found early. Don't wait — get screened."Mrs. Abramson will be joining UofL's Darrell Griffith at the Kentucky Science Center tomorrow as part of the Kentucky Cancer Program's Dress in Blue Day program. See them from noon to 1 p.m., or just stop by anywhere from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. You'll find information on colon cancer screenings, giveaways, free t-shirts, Body Worlds Vital, and... oh yeah, the giant, inflatable, walk-through colon.
— Madeline Abramson, honorary chair of the Kentucky Cancer Program's Dress in Blue Day initiative and wife of Lieutenant Gov. Jerry Abramson.
