Steven O’Day: March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month—a time where I am reminded of the resilience and courage of those affected by this disease

Steven O’Day shared on LinkedIn:

“March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month—a time where I am reminded of the resilience and courage of those affected by this disease.

Throughout the month, I am joining patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals in our collective fight against colorectal cancer. As the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, and with diagnoses on the rise among younger adults, colorectal cancer demands our attention.
I am proud to be a part of Agenus’ mission to research and develop immunotherapies for those facing this disease.

Join me in raising awareness and working toward making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by colorectal cancer.”
