March is Colon Cancer Awareness month, and car accident attorney William Mattar is joining Cancer Services Program (CSP) across New York State to support those affected by colon cancer in our community. Colorectal cancer, or colon cancer, is the third most diagnosed cancer in men and women and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in New York State. As part of the campaign, the CSPs in our communities and William Mattar are providing information about colon cancer risk factors, vital screening and diagnostic tests, education, and resources available to the community.
“We are pleased to partner with this dynamic team during colon cancer awareness month” says Michelle Wysocki, Director of Erie County CSP. “As a response to our most recent public health crisis, it is easy to forget about having screenings that detect cancer in its earliest state. When found early, colon cancer is treatable and beatable, and William Mattar is aiding in promoting this life-saving message to our community.”
“We are proud to partner with local Cancer Services Programs to raise awareness about colon cancer during Colon Cancer Awareness Month. This disease affects many people throughout our community, and we want to get the word out about the vital services the CSPs in our communities offer and the importance of regular screenings,” said William Mattar.
Cancer Services Programs provide breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening and diagnostic services at no cost to eligible, uninsured or underinsured men and women. These services are offered in local clinics, health centers, doctors’ offices, and hospitals by participating health care providers. CSPs partnering with William Mattar on this joint campaign cover the following counties: Erie, Monroe, Livingston, Onondaga, Steuben, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Albany, Rensselaer, Nassau and Suffolk.
There is a CSP in every borough in New York State. To find the CSP nearest you or to learn more about the Colon Cancer Awareness Campaign, please visit: https://www.williammattar.com/community-involvement/programs-and-campaigns/colon-cancer-awareness/.
