We supported the Wyoming Cancer Control Act and programs for colorectal cancer screening. In 2006-2007, we sent letters of support to state legislators for the Wyoming Cancer Control Act. The Act was signed into law by Governor Dave Freudenthal on March 12, 2007. Under that Act, Wyoming’s colorectal cancer prevention and screening program was unveiled. A total of 280 Wyoming men and women were screened for colorectal cancer in the first year of implementation. As budget cuts threaten preventive programs like the colorectal cancer prevention and screening program, we advocate for the continuation of those important programs.
