About our Alliance
We are the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, formerly the Colon Cancer Alliance. We believe colorectal cancer is a senseless killer that must be stopped. Founded in 1999 by a group of 41 survivors, caregivers, and friends, we are today the nation's leading nonprofit dedicated to colorectal cancer. We empower a nation of allies who work with us to provide genuine support for patients and families, caregivers, and survivors; to raise awareness of preventive measures; and inspire efforts to fund critical research. United in our fierce determination to dramatically impact the way society sees this devastating disease, we exist to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime.
A team of passionate allies
A passion to end a preventable disease brings together people of such varied backgrounds and expertise, from world-renowned medical experts to corporate sponsors to survivors now giving back in hundreds of ways. Learn more about the people pushing our alliance forward every day.
Spreading the word
Because screening and prevention have such a huge impact, and because early detection can be so effective, simple awareness is critical to our alliance reaching our life-saving goals. To that end, we have created many ways for everyone to participate, both at special times such as National Awareness Month, March, and every single day of the year. See how you can spread the word.
