MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and a local pharmacy is urging people to get tested.

During March, Adams Drugs is offering free colorectal cancer screening kits at its locations.

According to Adams Drugs, more than 142,000 new cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed and 52,000 people die from the cancer each year.

When detected early, there is a much better chance of overcoming the cancer and living a normal healthy life.

Adams Drugs says the kits are simple to use and could save your life. There are a limited number of kits at each Adams Drugs location so get yours early.
