Kirsten, 26, was just 22 years old and two weeks shy of her college graduation. It was a normal life with one exception: she’d been experiencing unusual symptoms but nobody would listen. After persisting for three years, she finally convinced her doctor something was really wrong. The shocking news? Stage III colon cancer. Fortunately, after surgery and chemotherapy, she’s now a three-year survivor sharing her story —and running in our annual Get Your Rear in Gear 5K—encouraging everyone to know their body, know their family history and be an advocate for their health. So don’t wait. Don’t risk missing what’s important in life. #GetYourRearInGear and get screened.
colon cancer patients will be diagnosed before age 50.
