Actor Terence Howard Grieves for His Mother Who Died From Colorectal Cancer

“She shaped me as an actor as a musician, as a human being. So when my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer, it was like our whole family got cancer. And she died when she was only 56.

Hopefully my heartbreak is your wake up call. Screening finds pre-cancerous polyps so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. I’ve been screened. Please get screened.

I’d do anything to have my mother here. Please do all you can to stay around for yourself and for your family. Screening saves lives.”
