#ScreenAt45

CRC Screening Should Begin at 45

The United States Preventive Services Task Force released a draft recommendation to lower the screening age for colorectal cancer to 45 years old for average-risk individuals. This would mean that people age 45 and older will, in most cases, be eligible for insurance reimbursement for CRC screening.

Thank You!

Blue Hope Bash

On October 24th we raised close to $1.3 million for colorectal cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. We overcame the challenges posed by COVID-19, and we faced it head-on. We came together, and we made a real difference. If you didn’t donate yet, it’s not too late to give. Our community needs your support!

ALLIES IN SUPPORT

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. 

ALLIES IN PREVENTION

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. 

ALLIES IN RESEARCH

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.
