Kathy Mattea has joined forces with Thinking Bee Productions and Mountains of Hope to create public service announcements on the importance of Colorectal Cancer screenings. The cause is close to Mattea’s heart as her father passed away from cancer. It was because of that tragedy that she decided to get involved with the program.
The PSAs feature Mattea discussing the loss of her father to colon cancer and the importance to get screened to prevent that pain in other families. Mattea says that her family was surprised at the diagnosis since her father was a “healthy guy” without any other illnesses. Her father had regular check-ups on his birthday but was never screened for colon cancer.
