Screen for Life: Meryl Streep PSA (:30)
[Meryl Streep] This is Meryl Streep.
There’s so much in life we can’t control.
But here’s something we can: colorectal cancer. It's the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. but it is almost entirely preventable!
Screening finds polyps so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.
If you’re over 50, get screened for colorectal cancer.
Screening saves lives.
It could really save your life.
