The 2012 CBS Cares Colonoscopy Sweepstakes has ended. However, our appreciation of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and Alan Kalter's participation continues. We also remain very appreciative of our alliance with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. A winner has been selected, but you can still be a winner by making sure you're informed about colorectal cancer screening and prevention. Check out our interview with leading gastroenterologist and colon cancer expert, Dr. Paul Miskovitz. New York-Presbyterian Hospital is a leader for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases. With proper screenings, colorectal cancers can often be avoided. And, if caught early, they are usually easily treatable. For information on New York-Presbyterian's range of specialists, programs and groundbreaking therapies, click here. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's participation in this project was especially meaningful – not only because they are major stars, but because Sharon fought a courageous and successful battle against colon cancer.

Matuszky was randomly selected from nearly 70,000 other sweepstakes entrants and hails from Latrobe, Pennsylvania. He is a 26-year-veteran of the Westmoreland County Department of Public Safety where he works as a 911 Supervisor. As part of the grand prize, Matuszky won a three night trip for two to New York City. He is accompanied by his 20-year-old son, Joshua, a student.
