Every day is #GivingTuesday
Your Support Saves Lives
Get behind the Colorectal Cancer Alliance and get ahead of colorectal cancer. Every day is #GivingTuesday! Support the Alliance as we smash screening stigmas and misconceptions. Everyone 45 and above should get checked. Get behind our important work by donating or creating a fundraiser.
How we plan to get ahead of colorectal cancer:
Screening Awareness: Let’s increase awareness and reject the stigma surrounding colonoscopies by educating the public about all colorectal cancer screening options.
Personal and Community Support: Get behind patients and the creation of a one-stop online destination for personalized support, resources, and live navigation with our certified patient and family support navigators and virtual support communities like Blue Hope Nation and Ally to Ally.
Life-Saving Options: Our advanced colorectal cancer clinical trial finder and education program along with funding critical research programs will help us find new ways to battle colorectal cancer.

Why #GivingTuesday Matters
Colorectal cancer prevention has a stigma problem. Get behind patients and caregivers and choose the Colorectal Cancer Alliance this #GivingTuesday, as we make colorectal cancer famous and drive up screening rates.
Let’s get ahead of colorectal cancer this #GivingTuesday and inspire hope by donating or creating a fundraiser.
4,092 Blue Hope Financial Assistance awards have been given to patients to offset the burdens associated with cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship, including the cost for 1,043 colonoscopies.
Through our Buddy Program©, we have matched 4,380 patients with a vetted Buddy who has been through a similar diagnosis to offer meaningful and useful advice that helped them get through colorectal cancer.
Along with our partners, the Alliance has provided 1,500 donated Cologuard kits, 15,000 FIT kits, and $300,000 in funding for colonoscopies to those most at risk for colorectal cancer.
