Early Testing for Colorectal Cancer Saves Lives – PPHD Offers Free Test Kit “Who wants a colonoscopy?  No one raises their hand!  We’ve all heard or tried not to hear the message.”  Speaking as a cancer survivor, Dr. Phillip Kesterson of Bridgeport NE can attest to the importance to get serious about screening.  “I’m here today telling you that utilizing modern technology to catch this condition early can be life-saving.  So, if you’re 50 years old or younger and at risk, get serious and get screened.  Raise your hand, the disease really is worse than the cure!”  We ask you take this message to heart and get tested today. Panhandle residents age 50 or older can contact PPHD at 1-855-227-2217 for a free FOBT kit.  Click here for the full article.
