Help us welcome our new Operations Coordinator Marissa Manderfield to the Colon Cancer Alliance family! We’re thrilled to have Marissa join us—read on to learn more about her, her enthusiasm for helping others and her furry best friends.
What excites you most about joining the Colon Cancer Alliance?
I’m most excited about the opportunity to see how much we can help people who need assistance. Also, spreading the world about screening and prevention (especially for younger people) is very important to me.
Share one interesting thing about yourself.
I love sports! I’m a huge fan of Washington, DC sports teams.
If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be and what would you order?
If I could have lunch with anyone it would be Katy Perry because I just love her energy! I would order a cheeseburger.
What’s your favorite song and why?
My favorite song is “All About the South” by The Cadillac Three; it gets me pumped for the fall and football season.
Tell us about your dogs!
I have two dogs: Marley and Finn. Marley is a five-year-old black golden doodle (how strange is that?) and Finn is a one-year-old West Highland Terrier. They’re my best friends!
Don’t forget, the Colon Cancer Alliance serves as a source of information about colon health. If you have additional questions about colon cancer screening or are in need of support, please contact our free Helpline at (877) 422-2030. We’re here to help.
