The Alliance is a social nonprofit—we 💙 our allies! In few places do we connect with more of you than on social media. Here’s a look back at your favorite posts of 2019 from Facebook and Instagram, based on engagement.
In the US, approximately 10% of colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed in individuals under age 50. The reality is: cancer doesn't care how old you are. But we do. Learn the facts about early-onset colorectal cancer and #getscreened today. [See this post.]

Our friend and advocate Craig Melvin hits the streets of New York in this very important PSA. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Join our Nation of Allies to help spread awareness of this disease. Dontassume.org [See this post.]
Thank you to the TodayShow and Jenna Bush Hager for reminding us yet again why we love this book, The Unwinding of the Miracle, so very much.
Julie wrote this book while battling stage-IV colon cancer. She is brutally honest and wrote it with the intent to inspire and encourage those that are also touched by cancer as well as those who are not. This book is not just about colorectal cancer, it is about living while you are living. Loving those around you and not taking one moment for granted.
We miss Julie, but we know that her legacy continues through her family, her friends, and all those who Julie met along the way.
Please watch this interview from the Today Show as they talk to Julie's family. It brought tears to our eyes and a smile to our face. We hope it touches you as well. [See this post.]
