How do I reach Jubilee Center? I’ve left voice messages for three weeks. I sent an email today. I need someone to return my call please. I called today and the number is continuously busy. I would go to the office but I’m under the weather today.
Timeline photosFree Home Screening Test Available Mar. 6-31
Colorectal Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. When it is found early, it is very treatable. Also, if found early, the 5-year survival rate is 90 percent. If everyone 45 or older had regular screening tests, at least 60 percent of the deaths could be avoided.
Home screening tests are an important and easy-to-use tool for early detection. This can be completed in the privacy of your own home, and you simply return the kit in the envelope provided for testing. You and your physician will receive results by mail. If you are ages 45 and older, free colorectal screening is available from March 6-31. You may request a free test by calling 308-865-7884 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., weekdays beginning March 6.
