How one wellness exam helped save two lives

Shawn and Nikki Cannon are firm believers in getting their routine wellness exams, and their story is an excellent reminder to stay on top of regular screenings — and nudging your friends and loved ones to do the same.

It was at a routine wellness exam when Nikki found out: colon cancer. Her doctor said it was good that she came in for this important screening, because the cancer was found just months before it had reached stage three. She immediately posted her experience on Facebook to make others aware of the importance of getting regular wellness checks.

Seeing this, Nikki’s friend Becky was reminded to go in for her colonoscopy, which also showed that she had colon cancer. Because of Nikki’s reminder, they caught it early, and today, she is cancer free.

According to the recent Aflac Wellness Matters Survey, about half of adults have avoided at least one common health screening, including tests for certain diseases and other exams. At the same time, 51% of respondents who have had cancer said their diagnosis came as a result of a routine checkup or screening. Nikki and Becky’s stories are great reminders to be proactive with your health and wellness and that prioritizing routine exams and screenings can help lead to better outcomes.
