The "Cancer Doesn’t Take a Holliday" promotion is urging people to get checked for colon cancer.
Matt Holliday, outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, is teaming with the Siteman Cancer Center to promote colon cancer screenings. Kathy Holliday, mother of Matt Holliday, was diagnosed with colon cancer last year. She and her son are teaming up with the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine, where Kathy was treated, to encourage colon screenings for anyone age 50 and older. “It could save your life,” says Kathy Holliday, who is cancer free after being treated by Washington University surgeon Steven Hunt, MD.

The team announced Tuesday that the veteran pitcher is still dealing with effects of previous injury that sidelined him for most of 2012. Mercy doctors will likely be involved in evaluating what happens next.
Sad news out of the St. Louis Cardinals front office today — the Mercy partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals as the team's official medical provider will get a high-profile start. The team announced Tuesday that Chris Carpenter, sidelined for most of the 2012 with thoracic outlet syndrome, will likely not pitch in 2013 after having trouble with offseason workouts. In a news conference broadcast on local media outlets, Cardinals VP and General Manager John Mozeliak announced that Carpenter would "utlize the Mercy network" among others in finding a way forward, after the player notified the team Friday that he was unable to throw at a high velocity after otherwise having had "a normal offseason," according to Mozeliak. Mozeliak said there…

The health care provider is also nearing an announcement of a location for a stand alone sports medicine center.

It won't preclude a player from seeking out their own treatment elsewhere so if a pitcher wants a second or third opinion, or to have surgery performed elsewhere by the likes of a Dr. James Andrews, based in Alabama, they will continue to have that option. But the arrangement gives the team, minor league squads and employees on the business side of the organization, access to Mercy doctors, tapping into a wider umbrella of care. Mercy doctors already serve as the team physicians for the Cardinals' Double-A team in Springfield. "You hear about things making headlines …
