WHERE THE FUNDS WILL GO

It is estimated that in 2021, nearly 150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and nearly 53,000 will die from the disease. Both of these statistics have increased in the past year as  a result of COVID-19 related delays in screenings.

To help combat this, 100% of net proceeds from this year’s Inside Anne’s Closet event will fund the Alliance’s treatment and financial and assistance programs in the Bay Area by issuing either stipends to lessen the burden or to provide a 100% free or reduced cost screening to those most in need.

PATIENT HIGHLIGHT

Being a mom is everything to Jessica Buscho. It’s her purpose, one that pushes her through the difficult, everyday journey of colorectal cancer. For more than four years, Jessica has been battling this disease, including metastases to her brain and other organs. A lover of science and people alike, she found her way to an organization that harnesses and shares the power of both — the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. The Alliance helped Jessica build a community of support, learn how to manage side effects from treatments, and hear from others who have survived. The Alliance is a source of guidance and hope that even optimists like Jessica need sometimes. Today, Jessica is participating in another clinical trial, hopeful that this will be the one to make colorectal cancer retreat. As a mom, she has a lot to live for — her kid’s track meets, drama performances and baseball games are just a few. No mother should ever have to worry about missing her children’s milestones, Jessica says, and that’s why we must do everything we can to end colorectal cancer.
