Bucket List

Put Colonoscopy at the Top of Your Bucket List!

A colonoscopy can catch cancer early, when it’s most treatable, and help prevent cancer by finding abnormal growths called polyps that can turn into cancer. Without a colonoscopy, you may never know you have it.

To make sure you can accomplish everything on your bucket list, put colonoscopy at the top! If you’re 45 or over, it’s the single best way to protect yourself from the disease. 

When you have your screening colonoscopy by December 31, 2019, you’ll receive a $20 gift certificate to Gatto’s Restaurant and have a chance to win an indoor skydive at iFly indoor skydiving. So you can check that one off your bucket list too!
Call (815) 300-7076 to schedule your colonoscopy. A doctor's referral is required.
