Colorectal Cancer Is The Second Leading Cause Of Cancer-Related Deaths In The U.S. Hear One Local Woman's Story Of Battling It And Winning!

"Cancer happens to other people." That was Kathy Kill's thought until the day she received her diagnosis of colon cancer -- a diagnosis that shocked her. Colon cancer is among the top five killers of men and women in this country. Like many cancers, early detection is critical for successfully treating colon cancer. Kathy's cancer was detected during a colonoscopy, one of our most important diagnostic tools in detecting colon cancer. Thanks to that early detection and the help and fast treatment of oncologist, Dr. William Stephenson and the rest of the Research Medical Center cancer team, Kathy beat her cancer before it could take her life. She remains free of cancer two years later.

Hear more of Kathy's story and learn more from Dr. Stephenson about the importance of a colonoscopy after age 50 and the early detection of colon cancer.
