TORONTO, May 18 /CNW/ - The following video is available by satellite or by CNW's Video On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY:  Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Canada. Nearly 9,000 Canadians will die of colorectal cancer this year alone and more than 22,000 Canadians will be diagnosed. This is a substantial burden on the Canadian population.

Many people are not aware that there is a simple, at-home screening test (a stool test) for colorectal cancer that could save many thousands of lives. We are trying to raise awareness of this simple test to save lives.

In this video, Canadian Cancer Society expert spokespeople talk about colorectal cancer and screening. A colorectal cancer survivor speaks about her experience with cancer and her thoughts on screening.
