ChicagoCHEC Community Forum will raise cancer awareness in Chicago’s minority communities

Monday, September 18, 2017

Candace Henley, 36, was rushed to the emergency room with severe bowel blockage, but physicians thought she was too young to have colon cancer and didn’t screen her for it. The single mother of five young girls didn’t know enough about the disease to ask for a screening. It wasn’t until her third ER visit, six months after her first, that a physician finally gave her a fecal occult blood test. They later found a cancerous tumor the size of a grapefruit, and removed 95 percent of her colon.
