    About “Screen Your Machine”
    Screen Your Machine is Scott Lagasse Jr.’s personal and passionate quest to encourage people to be screened for all types of cancer. Scott is alive and healthy today as a colon cancer survivor because he got screened when he sensed something was “not quite right” while training for a triathlon event. Being an athlete, Scott is always sensitive to what his body is telling him. He was well under the recommended screening age, but cancer doesn’t care about your age. Scott is an outspoken proponent for cancer screening and official ambassador for Fight Colorectal Cancer (FightCRC.org). In addition to launching Screen Your Machine, Scott recently spoke during a TEDx conference on his personal experience and currently is the focus of a National PSA for FCRC. Scotty is utilizing his motorsports platform which includes NASCAR, the Trans Am Sport Car Series and Dirt Car racing, to reach every motorsports fan (represents 33% of all adults in this country) with his plea to ScreenYourMachine.com!
