When life threw Asa a curveball, he knew how to react.

In baseball, you get three strikes, but in real life you might only get one. Asa used 3 Steps Detect to get a stage 1 diagnosis, and now he’s cancer-free.


It’s all about early detection

STEP 01:
Remember what great feels like

Knowing how you feel when you’re at your best will help you notice small changes in your overall health that could be signs of larger health changes.
STEP 02:
Use the 2-week rule

If you notice a subtle change in your normal health that lasts two weeks or more, it’s time to call your doctor and learn what is causing the change.
STEP 03:
Share with your doctor

Taking action and talking to your doctor about small but persistent health changes is your best pathway to earlier diagnosis, and more effective treatment.
