The American Cancer Society has launched Tag2Nag, a campaign to raise colon cancer awareness. March is colon cancer awareness month.

This is a Facebook campaign that encourages users to tag images of family and friends ages 50 and over with prevention messaging. We’ve included an example above.

According to the press release announcing the program, if everyone in this age range got screened, death from this disease was fall by half, with 25,000 lives saved each year.
