Carrera a beneficio del cáncer de colon

Apr 05, 2016 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA

Vuelve el 5K “Córrelo, Camínalo y Chequéate eso” de la Coalición de Cáncer Colorrectal de Puerto Rico, el cual se celebrará este próximo domingo, 10 de abril, a las 8:00 a.m. en el parque Luis Muñoz Rivera, en San Juan.

“Este evento ha recibido un apoyo muy especial de parte del público porque son muchas las personas que se identifican con la causa. El cáncer de colon ha impactado a miles de familias puertorriqueñas. Por eso es tan importante levantar una voz de alerta y promover la prevención”, informó Marcia Cruz Correa, presidenta de la Coalición de Cáncer Colorrectal de Puerto Rico.

En Puerto Rico mueren anualmente entre 600 a 700 personas a causa del cáncer de colon. Lo más impactante es que cuando se detecta en etapas tempranas, es curable en el 90% de los casos, lo que significa que las personas no se están realizando sus pruebas rutinarias.

“Es importante que las personas conozcan que existe una prueba sencilla e indolora que conocemos como Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) que consiste en tomar una muestra de excreta, la cual es analizada con miras a identificar la presencia de sangre oculta en las heces. Esta es a su vez, señal de crecimiento anormal de células malignas y la existencia de pólipos precancerosos”, destacó Cruz.

El cáncer de colon suele aparecer sin presentar ningún tipo de síntoma y lamentablemente, en repetidas ocasiones, al momento de ser diagnosticado ya los pacientes tienen la enfermedad en estado avanzado. La mayoría de los pacientes en Puerto Rico cuando van al médico, presentan cáncer de colon en etapas avanzadas, lo que está asociado a una menor tasa de sobrevida. 

Este año, el evento contará con un programa de calentamiento que se estará realizando a las 7:00 a.m. Además, luego de la carrera, se estarán llevando a cabo charlas educativas y varias actividades de entretenimiento.

    Currently it seems like Drupal is the preferred blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is
    that what you are using on your blog?

    I'm not sure why but this website is loading extremely slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?

    I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to
    make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!
