How would you fill in the blank? 

Each of us is dedicated to ending colorectal cancer. Our reasons are as unique as our journeys. Each is personal, important, and worth sharing. This March, we are telling the world why tomorrow can’t wait.


What type of surgery is best for you?

Advances in medical science have now provided patients with options when they are faced with a surgery—and for many patients, those options can mean a faster and less painful recovery.


A world free of colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is a potentially fatal disease that is mostly preventable. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance raises awareness of preventive measures; provides support for patients, caregivers, and survivors; and inspires the efforts that fund critical research—all to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. We continue to have aggressive, and important, goals. To date, more than 800,000 people have turned to the Alliance. Won’t you join us?

March Forth to save 100,000 lives through awareness and prevention by 2029

Increase the number of patients and families served to 750,000 annually by 2024

Commit $30 million to innovative and life-saving research by 2024


Helping patients, caregivers, loved ones and survivors

We serve as allies to everyone touched by the disease, with a national network of survivors and advocates at the ready to help others navigate their cancer journey. Having walked in your shoes, our helpline staff can share experiences and identify the right resources for wherever you are on that journey. 


Catching cancer before it can advance

Working with healthcare professionals and social influencers, we will overcome barriers to screening and improve access to colonoscopies and alternative screening methods. When detected early, colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable and treatable forms of cancer, yet a third of at-risk adults have not taken steps to make sure their cancer is caught before it can advance. 


New treatments, new drugs, new protocols

Collaborating with research institutions through our Chris4Life Research Program, we’re funding promising research in areas including young-onset colorectal cancer, immunotherapy and biomarkers, and patient-centered research areas like clinical trials and quality of life and survival issues. We are committed to investing $10 million toward this research by 2021.


Many, many ways to help

Our nation of passionate allies is growing; we invite you to join us in the way that suits you best. To that end, we make it easy to get involved, from our popular Undy RunWalk to new and simple ways to create your own grass-roots local event. No matter how you choose to help, your contribution will be valued by all of us. After all, we can’t do this alone.
