Assembly Resolution No. 806
BY: M. of A. Cymbrowitz
        MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
        March  2020, as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in
        the State of New York
  WHEREAS, Colorectal cancer is the second  leading  cause  of  cancer
deaths in men and women, combined, in the United States; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  estimated  that in the year 2020, over 104,610 new
cases of colorectal cancer will be diagnosed in the United States; and
  WHEREAS, In the year 2020,  the  disease  is  expected  to  kill  an
estimated 53,200 individuals in this country; and
  WHEREAS,  An  estimated 9,000 men and women in the State of New York
will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in the year 2020; and
  WHEREAS, In November  of  1999,  the  United  States  Senate  passed
legislation  declaring  March 2000 as the first-ever National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month; and
  WHEREAS, The Colon Cancer Alliance, Inc. (CCA) will continue working
with Congress for coverage, education, and awareness so that  colorectal
cancer is detected early and lives are saved; and
  WHEREAS, Screening for colorectal cancer is underutilized; less than
50  percent  of  individuals  above age 50 receive annual screenings for
colorectal cancer; and
  WHEREAS, Regular screenings, which can detect polyps  that  lead  to
colorectal cancer, can save lives; and
  WHEREAS,  Education  can  help  inform  the  public about methods of
prevention, and about symptoms, to aid in early detection; and
  WHEREAS, Adopting a healthy diet at a young  age  can  significantly
reduce the risk of developing colorectal cancer; and
  WHEREAS,  The  State of New York should help inform the public about
colorectal cancer prevention and screening; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew  M.  Cuomo  to  proclaim  March  2020,  as
Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in the State of New York;  and  be  it
  RESOLVED,  That  copies  of  this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the  State  of
New York; and The Colon Cancer Alliance, Inc.
