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?
We will double the number of patients & families served
We will save 100,000 lives through screening & prevention
We will invest $10 million in critical research
ALLIES IN SUPPORT
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.
ALLIES IN PREVENTION
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.
ALLIES IN RESEARCH
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.
ALLIES IN ACTION
Our nation of passionate allies is growing; we invite you to join us in the way that suits you best.
