In March, Dak teamed up with Katie Couric and Stand Up To Cancer to issue an important call to action: Get your butts to the doctor!  Why is screening so important?  Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women combined in the U.S. and, sadly, it will claim an estimated 50,000 lives this year alone.  The good news is that if it’s detected early, colon cancer is beatable in 90 percent of cases, and with appropriate screening it is often entirely preventable!  So get your butts to the doctor because when it comes to colorectal cancer, the best defense is a good offense!  Click the image to read more.

Where No Camera Has Gone Before: Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel lent his support to the campaign by allowing Katie Couric to accompany him to his first colonoscopy, in hopes that it would encourage others to be proactive about their preventative screenings!  Click below to watch Jimmy Stand Up To Cancer.
