Let’s Make Colon Cancer Famous


LEAD FROM BEHIND is the biggest and boldest awareness initiative ever created for colon cancer. Our goal is simple: Make colon cancer famous, so everyone knows that it is the preventable cancer.

Powered by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance and founded by Board of Directors member Brooks Bell, LEAD FROM BEHIND was produced in partnership with Ryan Reynolds and his creative agency Maximum Effort.

Young people are getting colon cancer more often. Black and underserved Americans are at greater risk. Millions of people who might prevent this disease with screening skip the scope.

No one is paying attention, but that’s about to change. 

Get Ahead of Colorectal Cancer

Let’s LEAD FROM BEHIND together by making colorectal cancer famous and raising awareness of the new recommended screening age of 45 for those of average risk.
