Meryl Streep: encouraging people to get screened for colorectal cancer in broadcast public service

In 2013 already, Meryl Streep joined other celebrities to encourage colorectal cancer screening in a nationwide PSA broadcast. “Over the years I have played some characters you could call controlling, but the truth is, there’s so much in life we can’t control,” she says in the clip. “But here’s something we can: colorectal cancer.”
