County Commissioners Proclaim Year of Awareness

Last week it was city hall, Monday the Colon Cancer Prevention Task Force was at the Lubbock County Courthouse as county commissioners proclaimed 2006 a year of awareness in the fight against colon cancer.

Dr. Davor Vugrin, chairman of the task force, says in the next 10 years, over 100,000 men and women in Texas will be diagnosed with colon cancer, but his goal is to eliminate the disease in Lubbock County.

The American Cancer Society recommends everyone be screened for colon cancer by age 50, or earlier if you have a family history of cancer or polyps.
