For example, Teri Griege, an Iron Man World Champion Athlete and stage IV colon cancer survivor, will be featured as one of the Colon Cancer Alliance's female ambassadors. Teri's story reinforces that both women and families at high risk need to get screened. The day Teri was diagnosed with colon cancer was the day she saved her family's life. After being screened at Teri's insistence, her two sisters and two of four nieces were diagnosed with either colon cancer or had pre-cancerous polyps.
