Longtime Ottawa Senators General Manager and Shawville native Bryan Murray passed away on Aug. 12 after an extended battle with colon cancer. Murray was 74.
After being diagnosed in June of 2014, Murray made it his priority to spread awareness about the dangers of men neglecting to get a colonoscopy.
“Like a lot of men do, I put it off,” Murray said at the time. “A simple colonoscopy, in my case, probably would have saved my life.”
Many people reached out on social media to share their stories about how Murray’s message prompted them to undergo a colonoscopy, which led to an early cancer diagnosis and gave them a better chance at survival.
