For Colon Cancer Awareness Month, today's episode is Lian's story of being diagnosed with colon cancer after a routine colonoscopy and how that early screening may have prevented a much more serious outcome.
It's also the story of how being pestered by her friend Karah to get that screening may have saved her life. Satellite Sisters and Misters, this is what we do for each other. You have our permission to pester!
Please share this show with your own Satellite Sisters and Misters.
