Early screening key to colon cancer survival – Baton Rouge Advocate

In advance of Get Your Rear in Gear – Baton Rouge on Saturday, April 27, The Advocate featured the story of Baton Rouge attorney Warner Delaune and how early screening was key to his recovery from colon cancer. The article also focused on sharing colon cancer facts, event information, and sharing details of how the money raised at previous events has impacted the Baton Rouge community.

Excerpt from the article:

Looking back at his initial decision to have a colonoscopy, Delaune said, “I had no symptoms. This was a purely routine colonoscopy.”
He’s learned, he said, that “it’s incumbent on patients themselves to know their family history.”
To promote prevention and early detection of colon cancer, the Get Your Rear in Gear Baton Rouge organization will hold its third annual 5K Run/Walk & Kids’ Fun Run on Saturday. Registration begins at 7 a.m. at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
