Colon cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer, if diagnosed in the early stages. In many cases, colon cancer can be prevented with proper screening and the removal of polyps detected in colonoscopies. Colon cancer is the second most common cancer in the United States. Nearly 150,000 cases are detected yearly and approximately 50,000 people die each year from colon cancer.
The mission of Premier Cares Foundation is to provide support, awareness, education and treatment to those individuals in the community with digestive and urologic diseases. Money raised at the Chili Festival supports local charities to offer services for patients with gastrointestinal diseases including colorectal cancer.
Tickets are limited so we encourage you to register early to reserve your spot at the event!
