Lazarex Cancer Foundation Sponsors Community Colorectal Cancer Screening at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center
Date:10/29/2008

DANVILLE, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 5, 2008, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center's Markstein Cancer Services will hold a colorectal cancer screening at their Summit Campus (3100 Summit Street, Oakland, CA, 94609). This community cancer screening is sponsored by Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit dedicated to changing the face of cancer, one life at a time. Sponsoring this screening is part of the organization's mission to revitalize cancer patients and their families with promising treatments, compassionate care, and comprehensive wellness products and services.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States. Early detection and removal of a precancerous polyp can prevent colorectal cancer.

This past year, Lazarex has helped end-stage patients successfully fight a variety of cancers, including breast, pancreatic and brain cancers, in addition to funding screenings such as this one through the Markstein Cancer Services at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center. "Both Lazarex Cancer Foundation and Markstein Cancer Services share a common goal of stopping the enemy before it starts by preventing new cases of cancer," said Lazarex Cancer Foundation President Dana Dornsife.

In order to participate in this community colorectal cancer screening, individuals must complete several steps, including obtaining a referral from their doctor, making an appointment with the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center's Markstein Cancer Services, and completing mandatory preparation steps 24 hours prior to the procedure on Dec. 5th. Partial and complete funding is available for eligible individuals. For more information, please contact Leslie Paine at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, 510.869.8833 or PaineL@sutterhealth.org.
