Our chapters are an extension of our organization. We’re inspired by the work they do every day to raise awareness and funds to support their local communities and our nationwide mission to knock out colon cancer. They work tirelessly to educate people about the importance of screening, provide support to the newly diagnosed and work with local media to spread awareness far and wide.

Volunteers Needed

Our chapter is always looking for volunteers to help us in our mission to reduce the impact of colorectal cancer in Central Arizona. We need help with our local events and outreach in the general and medical community. Members and volunteers provide our chapter with not only the resources to staff events, but with opinions, experience and assistance with planning and executing goals for our chapter.

Voices of Rhode Island

RI Chapter ImageThe Voices of Rhode Island Chapter was formed in 2007 by Barbara and Joe Joyce. The couple was driven by a vision to increase colon cancer awareness and put this disease on the map in their state. Since the chapter’s start, they’ve continued to grow and have left a lifesaving footprint in their community.

The goal of this Chapter is best expressed in their mission statement: To promote education and to offer support through community outreach, monthly meetings and individual conversations.

All across the community this Chapter is telling people that colon cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable by attending health fairs of various organizations, setting up informational booths at various community events and meeting monthly to remain up-to-date with all activities and information.
