Survivors, health group urge people to overcome fears, undergo colorectal cancer screening

Yvonne Edwards faced her fears, including anxiety about the unknown, and she’s likely alive today because of her strength. Now, she’s encouraging others to do the same.

Edwards is one of several people speaking out for a special Cancer Center Without Walls (CCWW) campaign.

The center, an outreach of the University of Virginia Cancer Center, works to address cancer throughout the commonwealth by partnering with community members to identify and meet needs. It strives to address disparities in cancer education and access to care.
