Cancer Patient Emily Collins Relies on Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to Deal With Disease (Video)

Emily Collins was shocked when she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Ninety percent of colon cancer patients are over the age of 50, so at just 31 years old, Collins is certainly an outlier.

But with help from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Collins is trying to get back to the life she had before the diagnosis, which includes her recent marriage to husband Greg.

Watch the video above to hear Emily's story and see how you can reduce your risk of colon cancer.
