In this episode, Dr. Arnold is joined by Susie Douglas. Last year, Susie's brother, Zach was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at just 38 years old. Motivated by her brother's diagnosis, Susie is biking the Great Divide trail from Montana to New Mexico with the goal of raising awareness about colon cancer in young adults. 100 percent of donations to her campaign will go to the Helen G. Nassif Community Cancer Center to support local cancer patients. Also on the podcast, Kimberly Ivester, director at the Community Cancer Center, discusses colon cancer signs, symptoms and trends.
