Members from the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day planning committee are preparing for the 12th annual colon cancer awareness campaign. The event is set for Thursday, March 26th.
C.A.S.U.A.L. Day is held in memory of Helen Phillips, a local woman who died from colon cancer in 2002. It is a dress down day held at the end of March each year. Proceeds stay in northeast Pennsylvania to benefit the Cancer Institute’s efforts to raise colorectal cancer awareness and support colorectal cancer screenings for low income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals through their Patient Navigation program.
Participants dress “casual” on March 26th by wearing specially designed T-shirts and pins. In the evening on March 26th, a wrap-up celebration will be held at Trax Platform Lounge in the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel Scranton from 5-7 PM.
