Meet Sari—an amazing teen who raised more than $6,000 in memory of her grandmother she lost to colon cancer. We got a chance to chat with the 14-year-old to find out why awareness is so important to her!

This month we’re honoring Kent W. Mouw, M.D., Ph.D. from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute! We recently awarded Dr. Mouw our Blue Hope Research Award to study a newly discovered genetic mutation found in colon cancer patients under 50.

Read about Dr. Mouw and learn how his research will get us one step closer to understanding young-onset colon cancer: bit.ly/1L3eYNM

Story

Working for a future free of colon cancer.
Introduction
We're a community that provides hope and support to patients and their families, while saving lives through screening, access, awareness, advocacy and research.

We are the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing colon cancer screening rates and survivorship. We know first-hand how devastating this cancer can be. We also know it doesn’t have to be this way.

We see a brighter future on the horizon. Each year, our programs reach more communities, and each year, we see more people getting screened and beating this disease. We know that a future free of colon cancer isn’t just a dream; it can be a reality. But, we can’t do it alone. Our staff and army of volunteers are committed to taking action both nationally and locally through exciting and impactful campaigns and events. Won’t you join us?

The Colon Cancer Alliance, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501( c ) 3 corporation.
