Kim Saenz, the director of the Hunt Regional Emergency Centers in Commerce and Quinlan, says March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer deaths.  But Kim says it is relatively easy to treat if it is found early. She says people with diets high in red meat and/or fried and broiled foods tend to be more at risk for colorectal cancer.  Also, the annual "Music Is the Best Medicine" fund-raising event for Hunt Regional Healthcare will be Thursday night in the Rayburn Student Center at Texas A&M University-Commerce.
