Cancer center hosts drive-thru colon screenings

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - March is National Colorectal Cancer Screening Month and Blessing Cancer Center is making it easier than ever to get screened.

The center handed out take-home screening kits Tuesday in a drive-thru.

Community Outreach Educator Stephanie Willey says the kits are easy to use.

"The kit is a three-day kit," Willey says. "You do it three separate days. You mail it back into our diagnostics center, then we send you the results back in a letter."

Cancer center officials will be handing out kits later this week in Palmyra, Golden and Kahoka.
