Dress in blue day to raise colorectal cancer awareness

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Groups across Iowa are urging people to wear blue Friday, March 5th to raise awareness about colorectal cancer.  It's part of National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is one of the few cancers individuals can prevent by getting screened early. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the country. Dress in Blue Day takes place on the first Friday in March and encourages individuals, businesses and community groups to wear blue and talk to each other about the importance of colon cancer screenings.
