KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Last week, FOX 4 introduced you to Kurt Barbour from Shawnee. At age 47, doctors diagnosed him with stage-four colon cancer, but according to current standards, he was too young to even worry about getting a colonoscopy. Now he wants others to know that they should not be afraid to get a colonoscopy.

Kurt's wife, Suzanne, visited FOX 4 along with Lisa Oliver, owner of 9Round, to discuss a fundraiser they are hosting to raise awareness about colon cancer.
