What we're asking you to do:
Did you know that the number of people who have survived colorectal cancer now exceeds 1 million? To recognize this amazing number, Olympus is gathering and sharing 100 stories of colorectal cancer survivors to both celebrate survivors and to raise awareness about the importance of screening.
Help us increase awareness of this preventable disease and encourage screening by sharing your story by December 31, 2020! We will launch the stories during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March 2021.
To participate, make your own video testimonial:
- Keep your testimonial short: Between 30 seconds and 2 minutes
- Find a space with natural light and make sure your face is gently lit when recording
- Your name, your location and your age bracket (such as “in my 60s” [Hi, I’m Shirley Smith from Eugene Oregon, and I’m in my 60’s]
- Details about Diagnoses:
- Date diagnosed
- Length of time you have been considered disease-free
- When the disease was discovered
- Your treatment
- Tell us a little about yourself [optional]:
- If you have time, what you like to do in your free time? [Hobbies, family, or even just enjoying the peace of mind knowing you are cancer free]
- If you are comfortable please finish with: “Ask your doctor if it’s time for you to be screened…It might save your life.”
