Thermopolis Woman Hosts Colonoscopy Party

Laramie, WY – A Thermopolis woman is so afraid of her colonoscopy that she's having a party for moral support.

Candy Whitt is urging others across the state to do whatever it takes to get a colorectal screening. A good friend of hers was recently diagnosed with cancer.
At 55, Whitt realized she also needed a screening. So she decided to have a party before her appointment on Thursday.

State health officials say early detection is important.
