Roughly 50% of cancer diagnoses are already the advanced stage when diagnosed. Early screening is the difference. The more we can spread the work, the more we can educate, the better chances we all have of beating cancer.

WE ARE E.R.I.C

We want to educate and inform on the reasons that Early Recognition Is Critical. (E.R.I.C.) We hope you will help us spread the word that we should all SCREEN UP!

ABOUT SCREEN UP!

The success of a screening is overwhelming! Screening can detect cancer before symptoms appear and the disease has had time to spread. This can make all the difference in treatment outcomes, as well as your chances for survival! Screening comes in a handful of different forms including:
  • Physical Exam and History: This exam of the body looks for general signs of lumps, and or anything else that seems unusual. Your history of health habits and past illnesses and treatments will also help professionals determine if you need further screening.
  • Laboratory Test: Testing of tissues, blood, urine, genetic tests, as well as other samples.
  • Imaging: Internal images including MRI’s, Ultrasounds, and X-rays
