Amy Roloff, star of TLC's hit series "Little People, Big Wold", and her crew came out to run Portland Oregon's Get Your Rear in Gear 5K to raise money and awareness for colon cancer prevention. It's the second-leading cause of cancer deaths, despite being the most preventable. So how come a lot of people still don't know about it?

"It's not like an area that people really want to talk about because it's. . . about the butt, says Amy, "But . . . that's a critical area. You can die from it."

What to do?

3. Get Screened: Colonoscopies can find polyps up to 10 years before they become cancerous and are often easily removable during the procedure. And 90% of all colon cancers found early are 90% treatable and beatable!
(Most insurance covers free colonoscopies for anyone over 50, or under 50 if you have a family history.)
