Clark County Commissioners and representatives from Lynch Syndrome International turned the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign blue Friday for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. 

Lynch Syndrome is a hereditary disorder that dramatically increases an individual’s chances of developing colorectal cancer and other aggressive cancers. 

County commissioners and representatives from Lynch Syndrome International turned on blue light bulbs installed on the world-famous “Welcome” sign during a brief ceremony in front of the sign. The light bulbs, which are usually yellow, surround the border of the sign.
