Share Your Colonoscopy Story

Many people are nervous about undergoing a colonoscopy - will it hurt? is the preparation as bad as it sounds? - and may delay a potentially life-saving screening.


Sharing your story can help others find the confidence they need to undergo the screening. You could help make a difference in someone else's life.


Some patients have shared that a colonoscopy literally saved their life by detecting cancer in early stages. For others, undergoing routine screenings helped to provide peace of mind knowing they were doing the best for their health.


Whether you've experienced a virtual or optical colonoscopy, we'd like to hear from you. Please consider sharing your story using the form below.
