Kathleen Daniels, wife of actor Jeff Daniels, (second from left) poses with other speakers at an event to raise awareness of colorectal cancer. The March 6 event, "Colorectal Cancer: No More Excuses—Get the Facts!," was held at the Kensington Court Hotel, by Briarwood Mall. Presenters were: Dr. Thomas Shehab, Daniels, Dr. Kim Turgeon, Susan Snyder, Dave Pollack, Tamara Rummel and Mary Ellen Dolan. It's estimated colorectal cancer will kill more than 56,000 Americans this year. Attendees learned about screenings that allow doctors to find and remove polyps before they become cancerous. Sponsors included Edward Surovell Realtors, Huron Gastroenterology, M-CARE, Saint Joseph Mercy Cancer Care Center and the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center.
