Zufall Announces Winner of Colon Cancer Screening Challenge 2017

Congratulations to Altagracia Jimenez, the winner of the Zufall Health Colon Cancer Challenge. The lucky Dover resident was awarded $500 in ShopRite gift cards. Her name, along with all patients who were up-to-date on their colon cancer screenings by the end of 2017, were automatically entered into a free drawing.

“I’m really happy I had my screening and could win this prize”, said Ms Jimenez, who already has generous plans for some of her winnings. “First, I’m going to buy juice boxes for the children at my church and then I’m looking forward to sharing the prize to help my daughter.”
