No one is ever alone. Our patient empowerment team is always available to provide hope and support to patients, families, caregivers and survivors. If you, or someone you love, is struggling to understand or overcome a cancer diagnosis, we can provide the latest information, and point you to expert resources and cutting-edge tools. At the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, we strive to deliver the level of support you need to make you whole again.

Prevention

Screening is the number one way to reduce the risk for this unique cancer. There are other ways, though. We believe it is important for all of us to can take charge of our health by knowing family history, understanding risk factors, eating a balanced diet, exercising, limiting alcohol use, and never smoking. For us, sharing this information is essential to ending colorectal cancer.

Research

Our research agenda includes advancing biomarker research, understanding why those under 50 are increasingly diagnosed with colon cancer, decreasing late-state diagnosis of high-risk populations, closing the referral gap for screening and diagnostic testing, and advancing long-term survivorship psychosocial concerns. We see patients, researchers, medical institutions and industry as pivotal allies for pursuing this effort.
