National Cancer Survivors Month
June is National Cancer Survivors Month. This month, the Alliance celebrates the millions of people who have survived colorectal cancer. They inspire us daily and energize our efforts to end this disease in our lifetime.
We also recognize that survivorship is more than just the end of treatment — it involves navigating the physical, emotional, and financial challenges of life after colorectal cancer. This is why we continue to offer comprehensive support, research funding, educational resources, and a compassionate community.
Together, we honor those who have survived and those still battling this disease, we strive to amplify their voices, and we recommit ourselves to overcoming colorectal cancer.
Take to social media to share your path with colorectal cancer and support others. Choose from a collection of copy-and-paste social media posts to amplify your story.
BlueHQ is a personalized support hub with direct access to the Alliance’s universe of tools, resources, and peer communities to improve your colorectal cancer journey.
Need to talk to someone? Call the Alliance’s toll-free Helpline at (877) 422-2030 to speak with one of our certified patient and family support navigators. Our navigators will listen and discuss any concerns, from mental and family well-being to medical questions and financial needs.
“Screening found more than 100 polyps in my colon and I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. A million thoughts run through your mind, but only one seems to matter: How am I going to get through this?
With help from the Alliance, I now call myself a survivor. The Alliance provided invaluable resources and support. I felt like I was on a sheer cliff about to fall over when a patient navigator helped pull me back from the edge.
If it wasn’t for generous people funding the Alliance, I wouldn’t have received the support I so desperately needed."
Read Gabriel's whole story, and please give this June to help make more survivors.
