StopColonCancerNow.com premiered its first-ever colonoscopy web series, “Keeping Up with the Kolonoscopy.” One brave man will show the world the process it takes to get a colonoscopy when you turn 50.
When John Grant, division president, ophthamology, turned 50 years old, he knew it was time to schedule a colonoscopy. He also knew that a colonoscopy is the only health screening that can detect and prevent colon cancer. For people turning 50, or 45 for African-Americans, this can be a life-saving procedure. In the first episode we meet John and his family: his wife, Mary, and his children – Emily (25), Allison (22) and Jack (19). This close, fun-loving family agreed to record their thoughts and the experience in order to inspire others.
