Give Hope This #GivingTuesday
Inspire Hope for the Colorectal Cancer Community
Join the Colorectal Cancer Alliance and support more moments of Hope. #GivingTuesday is a special day that encourages others to give back by donating or creating a Facebook fundraiser. Choose us this #GivingTuesday as we inspire Hope in everyone affected by colorectal cancer by working toward ending this disease in our lifetime.
What is Hope:
Hope is saving 100,000 lives through screening and prevention by 2029 by increasing awareness of colorectal cancer and screening options.
Hope is increasing the number of patients and families served to 750,000 annually by 2024 with personalized support, resources, and live navigation from our certified patient and family support navigators, as well as virtual support communities like Blue Hope Nation and Ally to Ally.
Hope is investing $30 million in critical research over the next five years to identify new treatments, advance diagnostics, and improve equity in screening and patient care. Each of these areas of study could lead to finding a colorectal cancer cure.
Hope is ending colorectal cancer in our lifetime.

Why #GivingTuesday Matters
Moments of Hope for a person impacted by colorectal cancer can be as small as getting a phone call from a patient navigator or as big as finding a potentially lifesaving clinical trial through our finder.
Choose the Colorectal Cancer Alliance this #GivingTuesday and inspire hope by donating or creating a fundraiser.
We delivered nearly 12,500 screening recommendations and completed more than 4,200 screenings through Alliance initiatives last year.
Through our free Helpline and patient navigation, we connected with almost 13,000 patients, caregivers, and family members to help them through colorectal cancer in 2021.
We have invested $5 million in research since 2016, and we continue to collaborate with our partners to find the best avenues toward a cure and the end of this disease.
