Katie Couric: 'Get Your Butt to the Doctor!'

That’s the message from CBS anchor Katie Couric, and it’s no joke.

Couric is trying to bring awareness to the same disease that killed her husband, Jay Monahan: colon cancer.

The famous news anchor invited “Extra” to a bowling benefit for the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance in New York, where she got together with friends and supporters to strike out cancer.

“I always tell people to get their butts to the doctor – literally,” Couric said. “We’re just trying to raise awareness and encourage people to talk with their doctors about this disease and find out how it can be prevented.”
