I will be joining my colleagues this Sunday, October 20th for a 5K run at Riverside Park to raise awareness and funds to promote colorectal cancer awareness. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United Staes. While I spend a good part of my work week preventing colorectal cancer "one polyp at a time", this is a unique opportunity to spread the good word about colorectal cancer screening and to raise money to promote the same. As one who has a family history of colorectal cancer I know how important screening and education can be in preventing this disease. I would love your support in this cause that is very important to me personally and professionally. Many thanks. Eric
