Get Your Rear in Gear


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – One in 20 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer in their lifetime. As we get older the risk increases, but there are still signs to look out for no matter how old you are.  Today we’re getting a unique perspective on colon cancer from a local doctor who’s battling the disease. We want to welcome Dr. Chelsea Boet to our studio today.

>>> Take a look in the video above.
