Dress in Blue Day raises colon cancer awareness

The 4th Annual National Dress In Blue Day event will be held in communities and offices nationwide on Friday, March 2nd as part of Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Just as red has come to symbolize AIDS and pink represents breast cancer, blue now signifies the fight against Colon Cancer.

Dress in Blue Day encourages individuals, businesses and community groups to wear blue and talk to each other about the importance of colon cancer screenings. In addition to asking people to Dress in Blue, Lebanon Endoscopy Center located on 100 Physicians Way, Suite 340, will host an open house to encourage the community to get involved. The open house will provide free educational materials, wristbands, Blue Star buttons, refreshments, $25 Gas Card and Awareness T-Shirt giveaways.
