SupportStore Statistics Reveal Colon Cancer still the #1 Awareness Challenge
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. SupportStore sales and visitor statistics show that Colon Cancer is the most sought after awareness item in the entire assortment.
Of 150 awareness causes featured at SupportStore, more Colon Cancer related wristbands, car magnets and lapel pins are requested than any other cause.
Colon cancer (also called colorectal cancer) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. On average, the lifetime risk of developing Colon Cancer is 1 in 20. Treatment is most effective when colon cancer is found in its early stages with colonoscopy screenings, according to the American Cancer Society.
The preparation for and the procedure itself are dreaded by many, but the benefits far outweigh the hassle. The death rate has been dropping for 20 years, and screenings are considered a primary reason.
A Little Humor Goes a Long Way
The colon is one of those parts of the body that most people don’t want to talk about. Yet if it stops working right, nothing good comes of it. One SupportStore wristband includes this message:
“Colonoscopies Save Lives – Get Yours Behind You”
This SupportStore-designed wristband features debossed letters, an awareness ribbon, and the rubber wristband is 100% silicon rubber and is individually packaged.
