“If we can save one life ...”
This is the third of a series that will follow Editor-in-Chief Mark Thornton and doctors from South Central Regional Medical Center through a colonoscopy to bring awareness to the importance of men's health as part of Colon Cancer Awareness Month
When Linda Gavin started HealthBreak in 1989, its stories and testimonials were always after the fact — it never aired live procedures with named patients.
I am excited to be promoting colon cancer awareness. On Friday, I feel honored to participate and perform a live colonoscopy event. This historic local event allows us to shed a light on a procedure that is life-saving.
As we hope you read in Tuesday’s Leader-Call, Editor-in-Chief Mark Thornton is going to take one for the team. That team is not those working here, but all of you men out there who are reaching the age of getting a colonoscopy.
My employees are like family to me. That isn’t hyperbole. Just ask my three “daughters” who work in the front of the office. And, just like family, I care deeply about their health and well-being.
