Out of uniform but in step with a good cause, Wayne Memorial Hospital staff donned brown-and-turquoise C.A.S.U.A.L. day shirts on March 27th to benefit the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute. C.A.S.U.A.L. stands for “Colon Cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives.” March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and every year the Cancer Institute urges people to dress “casually” and support colon cancer awareness. The incidence of colorectal cancer in northeastern Pennsylvania is more than 20% higher than state and national averages, according to the Cancer Institute. The disease is highly curable if found early. Screenings are recommended for anyone age 50 or over, or earlier if there is a family history of the illness. Wayne Memorial C.A.S.U.A.L. Day Team Captains Laura Tregidgo and Vicky Jaggars sold 50 shirts and 10 pins bearing the C.A.SU.A.L. Day logo, raising $800 for the Cancer Institute.
