How do I correctly introduce the clause 'her mother's life' in this sentence? Should I use a colon, comma or something else?

First, it is worth noting that her fear is about an object: her mother’s life

My vote is for a colon.

From UNC's writing center: (notice how I am introducing this with a colon :P)

Common uses of colons

  1. To announce, introduce, or direct attention to a list, a noun or noun phrase, a quotation, or an example/explanation
