Governor Henry McMaster has designated March 5 as colorectal cancer day at the State House. The American Cancer Society says colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in South Carolina. “Me (Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette) and the governor feel it’s important to keep South Carolinians healthy. Colorectal cancer is preventable if caught early and the only way to catch it early is through screening.” More than $1 million in annual state funding is going toward the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network which provides free screening and procedures for those that are uninsured or underinsured.
