Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among cancers that affect both men and women. It’s also one of the most preventable, but one-third of adults who should be screened haven’t yet done it.
That's why we’re excited to release an original music video today as part of our #StrongArmSelfie colorectal cancer awareness campaign with Fight Colerectal Cancer (@FightCRC), which is part of its One Million Strong (OMS) movement inspired by the more than one million colorectal cancer survivors.
In addition to employees from all three Mayo Clinic campuses, it’s great to get the Mayo brothers involved, along with President Lincoln and Lady Liberty.
BBR Music Group's Craig Campbell wrote and recorded “Stronger Than That” to support the campaign, and so we volunteered to produce the video. When he was just 11, Craig lost his father to colon cancer, so he’s been a strong proponent of screening and early detection. He’s a national spokesman for @FightCRC, and is donating all of the proceeds from downloads of “Stronger Than That” to support FightCRC’s advocacy mission.
Here’s how you can join the campaign:
