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.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. With thanks

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
    reading your blog and I look forward to your new
    updates.
