Dress in Blue Day today, Friday, March 6, to bring greater awareness to screening for colon cancer
ROCKWALL/HEATH, TX (March 6, 2015) Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall Gastroenterologist Dr. Kristie Blank (pictured above, second from the left) leads a tour through a giant inflatable display set up inside the gymnasium at the JER Chilton YMCA on March 4.
The event helped kick off Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and also served to raise funds for Relay for Life of Rockwall County, the American Cancer Society’s signature event taking place on May 2 at the Wilkerson-Sanders Stadium.
Melanie Mayfield, Marketing Coordinator for Texas Health, welcomed visitors and handed out free blue-colored merchandise as a reminder of “Dress In Blue Day,” which is today, Friday, March 6, bringing greater awareness to screening for colon cancer.
