Colons are funny. So are actors and Welsh Football Club owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. They had a little bet about Rob learning to speak Welsh and that pay off comes in the form of this video. It is also saving lives. Here are some facts about colon cancer:
Colon cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in America. 1 in 24 Americans gets colon cancer. It doesn’t need to be - because it’s preventable.
The best way to prevent colon cancer is by getting a colonoscopy when you turn 45. The guidelines changed in 2021 lowering the age from 50 to 45.
People don’t want to talk about colonoscopies, let alone get one. A HUGE thank you to Ryan Reynolds and Robe McElheeny for using humor and heart to change that.
