Commit to be Screened: Take the Find it First Challenge‏


Colon cancer is the most preventable and beatable cancer if detected early. That's why the Colon Cancer Alliance and Olympus urge you to Find it First.

If you are age 50 or older, have a family history of colon cancer or other risk factors, you should commit to be screened. Or, if you know someone over 50 or with risk factors, you can commit to making sure they get screened.

Olympus will donate $1 for each commitment -- up to $50,000 total -- to leading colon cancer advocacy groups the Colon Cancer Alliance and the Colorectal Cancer Coalition.


You may be familiar with its cameras, but Olympus is also a world leader in medical technologies. They are dedicated to partnering with consumers, advocacy groups, legislators, researchers and clinicians to:

• promote awareness of early colon cancer detection through screening

• improve access to screening nationwide

• eradicate colon cancer

Colon cancer screening in the U.S. can save 30,000 lives a year. Screening saves lives by finding this type of cancer in its earliest, most curable stages. There are no visible symptoms of colon cancer, which is why regular screening, especially for those most at risk, is critical.

That's why we are urging you to Find it First!

Find it First. Commit today!

How to watch the videos on Oh Baby Vision

In the upper left hand corner, there's three horizontal lines. Click that once or twice and it'll bring up thumbnails of all the movies. Click on the one you want to watch and it'll start. It may play the next one automatically, or you may have to click the little box to bring the thumbnails back up.

Now with the addition of more videos, just use the scroll bar on the right to choose the one you want to watch.

I hope you like 'em
