    #130 Colon Cancer Awareness - Eric Hargis, CEO Colon Cancer Alliance

    in Health

    March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Today, we will break from our usual discussion on education and try to save some lives! Colorectal Cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer. It doesn't have to be. CRC is preventable and treatable if caught in time. We just need to convince more people to get screened.


    Mr. Eric Hargis joined the Colon Cancer Alliance as CEO in January 2014.  Hargis has more than 35 years of relevant leadership experience in national health organizations and has a proven track record of supporting these entities through strategic growth. Hargis has a proven track record of being a transformational leader.  Nationally, he has successfully led the development of numerous programs, partnerships, events and fundraising initiatives.


    Daily, Hargis beats the drum that colon cancer is largely preventable and a unique cancer that we can actually do something about.  His passionate approach is intentionally driving the mission of the Colon Cancer Alliance to the forefront of a national health movement.  He is active in FDA committee hearings advocating for innovations in screening, meeting with congressional representatives to provide supportive insight and securing national corporate partnerships. 


    Hargis graduated with a degree from the University of San Diego.  He lives in Maryland with his wife and two children.


    The Colon Cancer Alliance’s mission is to knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers. This mission is being accomplished by championing prevention, funding cutting-edge research and providing the highest quality patient support services. Learn more at ccalliance.org.

    Colon Cancer Awareness w/ Wade Hayes

    in Health

    Today's guest is Wade Hayes, country singer and advanced colon cancer survivor. He is here with us to help support awareness in colon cancer during Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March—a disease impacting nearly 93,000 people this year.   


    Wade was at the height of his country music career with Billboard hits and a promising road ahead when he was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. Like so many people facing a cancer diagnosis, he had to put his life on hold. After successful treatment, the singer is determined to reignite his career.


    Wade is in NYC launching his brand new album and song “Go Live Your Life”—an emotional song that he wrote after his oncologist told him he was cancer free. For every download of “Go Live Your Life” purchased on iTunes, a donation of a $1 will be made to the Colon Cancer Alliance Blue Note Fund, a non-profit that supports colon cancer patients who are currently in treatment. Please go visit the site at www.goliveyourlife.com.

    Colon Cancer Prevention & Health Awareness

    in Health

    TUNE IN NEXT SATURDAY FOR ANOTHER INFORMATIVE PROGRAM BY ALPHA HEALTH MINISTRY,


    Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from it. But this disease is highly preventable, by getting screened beginning at age 50.


    What You Can Do



    If you’re aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed.

    Health Month: Colon Cancer with Michael Sapienza

    in Lifestyle

    Michael Sapienza's first love was music.  He received his Master of Music degree from Rice University and Bachelor of Music degree from Northwestern University and was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. Michael was awarded a position with the New World Symphony Orchestra. He served on faculty at the North Carolina Governor's School as instructor of trumpet and wind ensemble. He has performed with the Millar Brass Ensemble, Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra, Northwest Indiana Symphony, and Rockford Symphony.  But, then something happened that change the trajectory of his life.  "I remember the day when my mom called me and told me that she had been diagnosed with colon cancer. It was actually October 4, 2006. I was living in Miami Beach, Florida.   I was playing in an orchestra.  I moved back home about two months before she passed and we actually decided as a family to participate in scope it out 5k run/walk in her memory and our journey to form Chris4Life had begun."  Now, I dedicate my entire time to fighting this most preventable disease and helping those who have been stricken with it in some way.
