After getting a colonoscopy, Shelly Myer discovered she had colon cancer at the age of 38. It was something she suspected, but didn't think it possible given her young age. She was told colon cancer is generally for people over 50.

This wife and mother of four is now an advocate of colonoscopies and of letting young people know it can happen to them.

Shelly’s shocking diagnosis has also changed the way her longtime friend, Dr. Karen Lauer-Silva, now practices.

It’s a story that affects adults of all ages – and it could save your life.
