Shirley's Colorectal Cancer Story

"When I needed you the most! Thank you Moffitt".

When Shirley Palazzo was diagnosed with colon cancer during a regular colonoscopy, she was shocked and adamant about having her surgery right away.

Shirley knows getting screened saved her life. Her experience has given her the strength to talk about what she went through. She encourages others to go to the doctor regularly and be strict about health screenings.
